Review: Shadow of Destiny

“When it comes to death, most people don’t get a second chance, or a third, or a fourth. However, they also don’t have a creepy disembodied entity watching over them and offering “friendly” advice on how to best stay alive. Armed with this insightful info and a device that lets you go back in time, you have nothing to lose in Shadow of Destiny – aside from your life. Warping between the past and the present to change your fate in Konami’s time traveling adventure doesn’t change the fact it’s a dusty port of a decade-old mediocre PS2 game.”

Review: Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier

“The elf-like Jak and his furry ottsel companion Daxter have certainly been around the block more than a few times. The first three games set in the eco-infused, technology-laden world left behind by the Precursors set a high benchmark for the series. While more recent excursions into the realm of battle-focused kart racing (in Jak X: Combat Racing) and Daxter’s own solo adventure on PSP provided varying levels of amusement, it’s great to the see the duo back in action together again in The Lost Frontier.”

Review: G.I. Joe – The Rise of Cobra

“Rebooting retro, 80s kids’ cartoon franchises as blockbuster live action movies is all the rage these days, but without fail every one that rears its ugly head possesses an inherent disconnect from the brilliance of its source material. Most of these films fall somewhere along the spectrum of excruciation between having your fingernails pulled out one-by-one and having gasoline poured into your eye sockets. Initial excitement over the announcement of a new G.I. Joe film quickly turned to extreme trepidation once it became clear the atrocity that is G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra would be the end result.”
