Game Review: Limbo

This review is the definitive one man's opinion. Edge magazine gave Limbo a mighty 9/10; very impressive by their lofty standards. Eurogamer awarded the same, while G4 and GameSpy felt it deserved a perfect 5/5. I say they were all on something when they decided on those scores. Either that or there's a gaming conspiracy afoot. In any case, I was myself surprised by my opinions on the game, given my enthusiasm going in. I'm a supporter of indie games developers, and Limbo looked like it might raise the bar in this area. It's a simple idea; you control a young boy trying to find his way through a shadowy side-scrolling world, overcoming a host of sinister traps and puzzles. How can you go wrong with that kind of simplicity? I'll tell you how. Let this review act as a subtle (sort of) word of warning for those who haven't yet played Limbo, and a point of discussion for those who have.

Game Review: Fallout New Vegas

You are The Courier. Your mission was to deliver a mysterious platinum casino chip to the Lucky 38 Casino in New Vegas. You were to travel through the barren, post-apocalyptic Mojave Desert.

Instead, you were captured by tribal raiders. As you dig your own grave the leader of the gang (dressed in a natty white and black checkered jacket) lights up a cigarette and draws his pistol. He remarks that while it may seem as though you've gotten a run of bad luck, the game was rigged from the start.

Then he shoots you in the head.

That might sound like the end, but in Fallout: New Vegas, it's just the beginning.

Game Review: Bioshock

Imagine a beautiful, fantastic dream brought to life. Now imagine that dream maturing, growing, but then losing its way and devolving into anarchy, putrefying in its own decadence, slowly marinating in its own cruelty. That's the story of Rapture, a hidden city built at the bottom of the Atlantic ocean where intrepid players of 2K's Bioshock will be trapped.

Lurking in the shadows are the city's former inhabitants, who have changed into something more (and less) than human. Add to the mix phenomenal graphics, action and some political ideas with real heft and you've got an incredible game on your hands.

Bioshock was released back in 2007, so this review is hardly new, but the game has recently been released as a 'Playstation Classic' for the very reasonable sum of $20, which is well worth the asking price. This reviewer found many reviews for this game online, but very few serious reviews of the game's political message, something the game deserves.

Game Review: Fallout 3

As I wait in a dank, post-apocalyptic sewer, I can hear something skittering about in the darkness ahead. My wrist-bound PipBoy 3000 has a small light I could activate, but if I turn it on then whatever is lurking up ahead will know I'm here. A quick check at the pale green readout of my PipBoy 3000 shows my radiation level is within manageable levels. 'Manageable' means that with the proper drugs ('RadAway') I won't die outright from occassionally drinking irradiated toilet water.

The scratching sound is getting closer.
