Review: Strania - The Stella Machina

If I hadn't been reviewing so many of them lately, I would have thought the shoot-em-up genre was dead.  Apparently I was wrong as I've reviewed more games from this genre than any other over the last six months. Strania - The S...

Review: Test Drive Unlimited 2

I'm extremely happy that the racing genre seems to be picking up again.  In 2010 we had some spectacular titles like Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and Gran Turismo 5 so I couldn't wait to see what was in store for 2011.  Well that ...

Review: Zeit^2

One of the great things about services like the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade are their abilities to expose indie titles that otherwise would've never seen. Limbo, Braid, and Everyday Shooter are just a few examples of games that...

Review: Worms: Battle Islands

Milking a franchise is one thing, but if you hook a milk machine up to a cow for long enough eventually nothing's going to be left. The cow's going to fall over, die, and the only thing you'll be sucking out are the innards of a rotting car...

Counterpoint: How Halo: Reach FAILS

[Read Destructoid's original, glowing review right here. If you felt that was too positive, here's Destin with a counterpoint!] Halo: Reach has been out for two whole weeks. I think we can all agree that the critics love the game, and even...

Review: Sonic Adventure (XBLA)

I still remember playing through Sonic Adventure back when it came out on the Dreamcast. Firing it up again on the 360 re-introduced me to some characters, like Big the Cat and Amy, who I had all but forgotten about. But have my memories ...

Review: Hydro Thunder Hurricane

How a racing game featuring boats ever became as renowned as Hydro Thunder I will never know. Think about it. A designer had the balls to walk up to his boss and say "Okay, I've got this great idea. A racer, but with boats." Well thank ...
