REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

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.
