Review: King Arthur: The Role-Playing Wargame


“Neocore Games didn’t beat around the bush in coming up with an accurately descriptive title for King Arthur: The Role-Playing Wargame. The game beautifully blends some familiar and engaging war strategy genres into a powerful concoction that’s heavily steeped in Arthurian legend. The King Arthur mythos is ripe with fantastic subject matter and story elements to pluck from, and it’s seamlessly woven throughout the adventure in interesting ways. This epic and challenging quest to unite Britain by sword doesn’t disappoint, but you’re going to need some great fortitude to persevere in your righteous conquest.”

Review: Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery

“Last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles and the newly released Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery couldn’t possibly be more different from one another. Both handheld titles offer separate plots and side-adventures featuring the main character assassins from their respective console counterparts. However, that’s about where the main comparisons end. If you were among the many players who were painfully disappointed by the shoddiness and gimmicky gameplay in Altair’s Chronicles, take some comfort in the fact Discovery is a much better example of how a proper portable Assassin’s Creed title on the DS should be done.”

Review: Chaotic: Shadow Warriors


“With roots as a card battling game that eventually morphed into a hit kids’ cartoon, Chaotic: Shadow Warriors is made of the typical hyperactive, overstimulating stuff that most children simply thrive on. Plop them in front of the TV for a few episodes and then listen to them chatter about the inner-most complexities of the show. Sound unintelligible? It probably is. But even if you can’t quite get into the cheeseball, self-referential plot concepts and terminology-thick dialogue, there are some sound gameplay concepts floating around here and there. You just might have to dig a little to find them.”

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex


“As a consolation prize for their patience, Nintendo enthusiasts finally get a shot to dig into the tense, gritty firefights and grippingly poignant present-day conflict found in the original game with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Reflex Edition. The two year old, dialed down graphics are certainly not as sexy on the Wii, and there are some other subtle blemishes that appear on this port. Nonetheless, it’s a game you’re going to absolutely want to pick up, especially if you don’t have a chance to play it on another console.”

Review: Cooking Mama 3: Shop and Chop

“Most folks will probably agree that Mama’s mannerisms in the kitchen still tend to be a little hot and cold. One minute she’s cheerfully praising your work with bubbly enthusiasm, and the next minute she’s literally spewing fireballs from her eyes in vitriolic contempt for the awful mess you’ve made for her meal-crafting instructions. Thankfully, she lives in the moment, flip-flopping her mood depending on your prowess and scores of individual tasks rather than focusing solely on the end result. Yes, Mama is back and she’s got a kitchen full of fresh recipes to hurl at you.”

Review: Elven Legacy: Ranger


“With its focus on a complex, swords and wizardry-filled land spiraling into war following the theft of ancient, forbidden elven magic that could bring about the destruction of the entire realm should it fall into the wrong hands, Elven Legacy delivered a solid if somewhat unspectacular turn-based strategy experience. Players who enjoyed that title and squeezed every last drop of hard-earned fun from the game’s dual campaigns and multiplayer offerings will get a reasonable amount of extra mileage from the first installment in a trilogy of expansion packs clearly designed for the hardcore Elven Legacy addicts out there – assuming such a thing even exists in large numbers.”

Review: Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 4 – The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood


“Chapter 4: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood brings the story back around and ties together the adventure with a mixture of both expected and unexpected plot twists. Having grown accustomed to a steady stream of humor and cleverness found in past episodes, the laugh-out-loud moments don’t seem to appear quite as frequently in this latest chapter, and it takes longer for the momentum to build. The good news is things eventually do pick up and the insanity that unfolds in the final moments of this stretch of the journey is worth muscling through to the end. You can expect the forthcoming last episode will be one worth waiting for.”
