REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

What do these ratings mean?

Well somebody's got to write one, haven't they?

Pixar movies are, in general, of top quality, but most of the games based on the films are average at best. Graphics are second rate and the imagination in the gamepay is poor, often repeating missions but changing your surroundings. Madagascar's Gameplay is orientated around physics related challanges, but the gameplay seems somehow pre-rendered. The diffidulty levels are way out of proportion, some missions are nigh on impossible, and some are embarrasingly easy. The game on the island bears little to no resemblance to what happens in the film.

The environments are, however, detailed and well designed, so are the characters, looking almost as real as they do in the cinema. There are a few unlockable mini games, mini golf and sliding along a beach in a rubber ring.

And thats about it.
