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,...

What do these ratings mean?

First off, this was a very enjoyable game.  The gameplay itself was every bit as amazing as we have generall come to expect from a Call of Duty game.  The first mission was great, the idea of actually trying to take out a head of state was amazing.  That said, I did enjoy the story but I would have actually liked it more if it wasn't your typical "Russia is going to kill America" ordeal.  That kind of story has been done to death, and just because Black Ops was set during the Cold War doesn't mean they had to go that route.  I would have liked to see more focus on the actual Vietnam War.  I think they should have dropped the whole "Nova Six" angle, and - if Russia needed to be involved, it should have been that Russia had covertly dragged the US into the conflict.  Anyway, that was my only real gripe.  Great game.
