REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

What do these ratings mean?

I only played  the first few levels, but unfortunetly Darksiders never really became more than a grand God of War ripoff. Many will say it takes a lot from Zelda, but I never felt it. With poor level design, button mashy combat, crate-pushing puzzles and a bland story, there was nothing that screamed Zelda at me. There was a little Panzer Dragoon there too, but even that couldn't technically or even visually live up to a seven year-old game. A decent rental to be sure, that is if you can find all of this to be worth your time.
