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."

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.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Mindnumbingly awful is a way I would describe this game. I was halfway hoping that X-Men the Offical game would be more than a cash in on X-3 which by the way was not very good. This game is anything but good. The graphics are mediocore and your enemies all look the same except for some of them carry different weapons. You play the three different characters and nightcrawler stands out as the most fun to play but only because of the nifty teleporting feature. The other two are well um...With wolverine you just need to mash the hell out of your controller and you should be fine his tasks range from going down a corrider and slicing up enemies to entering small room and slicing up enemies. No really it's a lot more fun than it sounds...wait no it isn't. But Wolverine isn't the worst character by far the new comer to the x-men iceman takes the cake as the character and the worst part of the game. Riding around on a stream of ice shooting ice and **** at your enemies sounds cool but it's not, not even a little bit. Maybe some would consider skating around on an stream of ice at 5 miles per hour putting out fires and occasionly locking on to enemies and shooting iceballs at them fun but I sure don't. I think iceman is more suited to be a fireman than a super hero. Almost everyone of Iceman's levels consist of skating around and putting out fires. There isn't any fun to be had when you aren't dousing flames. Big time x-men fans may think they want to play through the game for the story but I wouldn't recommend it. The comic book style slides you get that progress the story are stupid and watching an action sequence play out in these slides is downright hilarious. As for the story well I'm just gonna say this, whoever thought bringing back Lady deathstrike and Stryker back from the dead should be stoned. Overall this game sucks and should not be played by anyone who thinks highly of the x-men. The only possible use for this game is buying the game for your  one of your x-men obsessed friends as a cruel joke but I warn it would be a risky joke because your friend, after playing, very may well slit your throat with the game disc before taking his own life.
