Colin McRae: Dirt 2

09-20-2009

When Codemasters announced DiRT 2, I was very happy to see that it still had Colin McRae's name on it. I found the first game to be "okay," and after playing the demo for this second installment, it seemed we had a great raci...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

11-12-2009

The biggest game of the year is finally here. Infinity Ward created one of the most popular, well-crafted and subsequently imitated first-person-shooter games in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and a sequel was inevitable. Tw...


 

Chex Quest

[Community blogger megaStryke likes to play old games that ripped off other games for his Off Brand Games feature. -- CTZ] It wasn't that long ago when just about every item on store shelves came packed with some cheap promot...

CSI: Crime Scene Investigator - Fatal Conspiracy

12-10-2009

Last year’s CSI: Deadly Intent was a bit of an ugly duckling, and something many of us would easily scoff at if we saw it in a store. Yet even though it was just a CSI version of Ace Attorney with a crime lab -- witho...

Call of Duty Black Ops

11-18-2010

A lot of people don't even know that  Call of Duty: Black Ops is out on the Wii. Activision has done next to nothing to promote the Wii version. Still, I know that you, the discerning audience of Destructoid is aware of ...

Costume Quest: Grubbins on Ice

12-13-2010

I adore Tim Schafer and Double Fine, but when Costume Quest was released a couple of months ago, I didn’t immediately download it. It looked interesting, but I wasn’t sure if it was something I was going to instan...

When you’re the developer of one of the largest timesinks in gaming history, what do you do to follow up on the release of your latest and greatest? Why, make it an even bigger life-swallower, of course. Firaxis seems t...

Clash of Heroes

04-14-2011

I'm unsure how sales for the original DS version of Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes were, but I'd be willing to wager they weren't nearly as high as they should have been. Capybara Games has taken that excellent handheld p...

Cargo! - The Quest For Gravity

04-25-2011

Many indie studios love to be as weirdly obtuse as possible, and you won't find a finer example than Ice-Pick Lodge. The studio's last major title, The Void, was as vague as vague can get, and plenty strange to boot.  Ic...

Conduit 2

04-29-2011

I've spent the past week playing through the short, but inevitably sweet single player campaign of the sequel to one of the most talked about games last year. I then spent some time playing through its new multiplayer modes a...


 

Codename: Kingdoms

06-06-2011

Last year's E3 had an intriguing teaser for an exclusive Xbox 360 game by Crytek called Codename: Kingdoms. And since then...we've heard nothing about it. Now, the codename has been dropped, with the game going by the new mon...

Coin Drop

06-22-2011

Coin Drop is free today for iPhone and iPad! I even reviewed that game, and I loved it at the time. Can't say I play it anymore, but it provided plenty of fun while it lasted for a $1 game -- which is something you can hardly...


 

CivWorld

06-23-2011

Are you guys excited for CivWorld on Facebook? No? Maybe these two video walkthroughs of the gameplay elements in CivWorld will help, and maybe not. Maybe you are the type that doesn't mind playing these kind of games during boring office hours, and maybe you even spent $5.99 on something like Zynga cash before. If you are not that person, here's an alternative.


 

Carnival Games

06-29-2011

I was at a party. People were having a great time. Suddenly, I found myself standing around a group of brand new people I had never met before. I don’t know how I got there, but it must have had something to do with the...


 

Civilization World

07-07-2011

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

07-07-2011

You played this on your Xbox 360 last year, didn't you. Or maybe you didn't after reading Jim's review. I thought it was fun enough. If you've missed it because you're a PS3-only guy, I'd say its worth a go when it hits the P...

Chaos Rings Omega

07-07-2011

When Chaos Rings released for iOS devices last year, it was quite an ambitious project. Impressive visuals, terrific music, and solid roleplaying elements made it a superb title and one of the most successful attempts at brin...


 

Contre Jour

07-10-2011

After making a splash at E3, what was once a fairly unknown indie iOS title attracted a ton of attention from press and gamers alike. Nominated for several handheld awards, Contre Jour is steadily approaching release. Once I got the chance to play it at EA’s Summer Games Showcase, I can honestly say that there is something quite special about this little indie game.


 

Civilization

07-13-2011

It's one thing to teach a computer how to play another game. It's a completely different story to try and make it learn the game on its own by reading the manual. Some rather smart folks over at MIT decided to see how well a computer could learn to comprehend new tasks from reading text. As a test, they decided to see if it could learn to play Civilization.


 

Crush 3D

Call of Juarez: The Cartel

07-25-2011

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood wasn't a great videogame by any stretch of the imagination, but it had a certain charm to it, and some terrific ideas. The series seems to be all about these really clever design choices that suffer from a lack of follow-through, be it through lack of time, skill, budget or all three.  Call of Juarez: The Cartel is exactly like that. But worse. Far worse.
