Review: Saints Row The Third

Some people think that the latest release in the Saints Row franchise is crude, dumb and offensive. Some think it’s just clumsy. Others think it’s liberating, hilarious, and clever. And some people just think it’s a pretty decent GTA-clone. But the question that we should all be asking, the question that nobody has asked until now, is what does Saints Row The Third think about Saints Row The Third? Find out by taking a look at my… I mean, Saints Row The Third’s review of Saints Row The Third, over at Gamedot.

Review: Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

Ubisoft seem determined to turn the Assassin’s Creed series into an annually-released franchise: is this multi-developer release proof of the folly of that decision, or does it in fact validate their plans? Take a look at my review at Gamedot to find out!

One thing’s for sure, it’s quite the looker:

Review: Sonic Generations

Gosh. It feels like my childhood again. Two 2D platform games in two weeks. But is this yet another lazy cash in from SEGA, or has Sonic finally found his groove again? Find out in my review at Gamedot.

Review: The Adventures of Tintin

My goodness but this game manages to squander the opportunity to make use of Hergé’s beautiful artwork. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s an awful game. If you want to know whether it’s worth your time, take a look at my review at Gamedot.

Here it is, utterly failing to mimic Hergé’s iconic ligne claire style:


Review: Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

“It’s not like the old games”, cried the old guard of Ace Combat. “But is that such a bad thing?”, everybody else replied. If you’d like to know whether NAMCO have ruined Ace Combat for everyone, or if the changes infuse the game with a refreshing new taste, you could do a lot worse than checking out the words wot I wrote for Gamedot.

It’s a rather pretty game, incidentally:

Review: X-Men: Destiny

X-Men: Destiny is rather flawed. Which is a shame, because it had incredible potential. You can read my thoughts on it over here.

It looks a lot worse than this screenshot might suggest:

Impressions: Dawn of Fantasy

Dawn of Fantasy is a game that’s just come out of beta, straight to release. I played it up to and including the final day of said beta, so this is technically not a review – however, it’s unlikely that drastic changes took place in the hours between the beta ending and the official release, so I wouldn’t expect too much improvement between the two points. My impressions are over here, at Gamedot.

The game looks a little something like this:
