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?

The Good: It's another Halo, Top notch production values, lots of new modes among other things to keep the series fresh, multiplayer is better than ever, story delivers

The Bad: It's another Halo...Stupid friendly AI, Theater doesn't work right, ending is disappointing, the Flood are back, and they mutate

First thing is first...I don't have XBL gold so I couldn't try out the multiplayer but I'm scoring this game as if I did and I couldn't stop playing it and lost sleep. Well here it is Halo 3. More over hyped then Kennedy's assassination. I also wanna make this clear: I'm NOT a Halo fan boy! A lot of these reviews here are bogus because every fan boy just blurts "ZOMG!!1231!!!32! b3ST game tehh eVEr!!!!!" just because it's Halo. Well let's start with the story. That's the most important thing here and yes it's delivers and answers all your questions. I won't tell you because I don't want this review canned so just play the game. The ending though is disappointing. Not as disappointing as Halo 2 but it just wasn't good enough. There are a lot of twists and surprises. The story doesn't really pick up until about half way though so just be patient. The graphics are awesome. I don't care if you think it's Halo 2 HD they are REALLY good. Full HDR lighting and high resolution textures with bump mapping. The audio is great and everything you love about Halo is here. There is all the old stuff here plus a lot of new stuff. Tons actually. First are two best features...Forge and Theater. While theater lets you record 16 seconds of you playing it doesn't work like you think. You choose your map and you press go and it records and your done. You can save screenshots and upload which is still cool, and Forge is well...a map editor. There are also new weapons such as the gravity hammer, a Spiker which is like the Needler but spikes instead, there are new vehicles new everything. I mainly hated most was the friendly AI. It's so retarded its nuts! While someone's driving and your shooting you have to constantly do both at the same time. There will be two Wraiths on your ass and your trying to get a bead while your stupid friendly is trying to drive up a mountain side. It gets so irritating sometimes. What I mostly liked about Halo 3 is the campaign is more varied. Not one place is repeated twice. The gameplay is always mixed up as well between, indoor, outdoor, and vehicular combat. The indoor combat sucks though because it's too cramped and it's easy to get killed. The outdoor battles are what's awesome. The places are HUGE with giant Scarabs you have to kill while tons of people are fighting around you. That's basically it really. It has a great achievement system and it isn't extremely difficult to unlock them all. Everyone's playing Halo 3 so I won't tell you to play it.
