Review: Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut
by Jim Sterling

Deadly Premonition may be the most well known review I've ever written. It's certainly one of the most debated 10/10 scores I've ever awarded -- though I've not awarded too many. It's a score I stand by wholeheartedly, and Deadly Premonition remains the review of which I am most proud. 

To this day, I still believe the best way to describe playing Deadly Premonition is that it's like watching two clowns eat each other -- it's perverse, it's wrong, and yet it's excruciatingly funny. That's Deadly Premonition for you. So bad it's incredible. So wrong it's right. So broken, it's achieved a level of twisted perfection. 

They say perfection cannot be improved upon, and that's something Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut hopes to prove wrong. With improved graphics, extra content, and overhauled controls, the team at Access Games has pushed the boat out to make Agent York Morgan's return to Greenvale as superior as possible.

It does, sadly, not live up to expectations. However, at least PS3 owners now get access to a beautiful, if quite inferior, adventure of a lifetime.

Talking Deadly Premonition: Directorís Cut with SWERY photo
Talking Deadly Premonition: Directorís Cut with SWERY
by Steven Hansen

Destructoid’s love affair with the inimitable, idiosyncratic Deadly Premonition is a point of public record. Jim’s infamous, glowing, 10/10 review turned a lot of people onto the game -- myself included -- and for that we are as thankful as Resident Evil 6 are indignant. Or, if you’re playing along at home, substitute any game that we score low. “[x] gets a [y] when Deadly Premonition gets a 10,” the commenter scoffs and chortles into his Cheetos.

We’re all aware, of course, that there are some technical issues in the game. Deadly Premonition’s release was a rare one. A Japanese studio was developing, plainly, for a Western audience. The project was helmed by a man, SWERY (or SWERY65), committed to his bizarre vision and allowed creative control. That something so unique and personal got a retail, console release was amazing enough. The team being able to revisit the title to address niggling concerns, beautify it, and add content just seems unreal. Yet, that’s precisely what’s happening with Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut.

Review: Under Defeat HD photo
Review: Under Defeat HD
by Allistair Pinsof

Helicopters are complex, unwieldy machines. In games, their difficulties are either flat-out ignored (Twin Cobra) or make for one of the steepest learning curves you’ll ever face (Battlefield 2). Under Defeat is a balancing act that exists between these two extremes. It controls unlike any other shoot-em-up on consoles, but that may not be a good thing, depending on your preference.

One thing is for certain, you’ll need to earn your piloting license to fly in these very, very unfriendly skies.
