    An exercise in heavenly multitasking that’s exhilarating alone but better with a friend.

    Another dose of F.E.A.R. is always welcome, but this story goes nowhere. [Holiday 2006, p.56]

    A brilliantly funny, disturbing, and entertaining visual novel, but the lack of interaction won't appeal to everyone.

    While Rainbow Six veterans will surely miss the familiar pre-planning elements of the hallowed franchise, most of the changes made for Vegas successfully ramp up its intensity, and more importantly, its fun. [Mar 2007, p.60]

    No flashy new features or buzzwords, just magnificent racing stemming from a refinement of Grid 1’s greatness.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    With its visuals, music and play all working in lockstep, this is the kind of game you can get completely immersed in.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A gritty, brutal WWII shooter that uses its scale, setting, and fidelity to great effect.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A great update of a classic game, even with the micromanaging. [Mar 1997, p.134]

    Give Verant a little while to iron out a few problems, and EverQuest will be everything you could want in an online RPG. [June 1999, p.122]

    While this in-game training certainly gets the action moving in a hurry, more of the actual Force-progression elements should have been set in the Academy. [Dec 2003, p.112]

    • 86 Critic Score
    One of the most fun and challenging local co-op games ever made, but the single-player experience is less thrilling, making the lack of online play disappointing.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A beautiful adventure with heart, humour, and satisfying hacking puzzles you can enjoy even if you don’t know anything about coding.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A first-or-third person shooter that is one of the most chilling, disturbing games I've ever played. And I mean that in the best way possible...The Suffering's main downside is that its graphics engine isn't the latest and the greatest. [Sept 2004, p.62]

    The most innovative sim in years, even with its manageability issues. [Jan 2005, p.66]

    But when things do come together, it can be a near-perfect storm that balances questing, instanced scenarios, and open world RvR that makes it feel like you're gliding through leveling rather than grinding. [Holiday 2008, p.64]

    • 86 Critic Score
    A stylish mix of bullet hell and deft swordplay, Furi is only held back by rare bugs and poorly designed difficulty spikes.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Although it lacks in mission variety, Dawn of War II skips the pleasantries of base-building and gets right to the point: action-packed, bloody warfare (with loot!) [Mar 2009, p.62]

    • 79 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A supreme strategy game, rich with incident and detail. Finally some worthy competition for the Total War series. [Mar 2010, p.76]

    • 86 Critic Score
    The game entices you with its beauty before hooking you with its effects and finally landing you with its enormous gameplay depth. [Sept 2008, p.66]

    A graphically bland, but ultimately satisfying re-creation of the front office number-crunching in the halls of MLB's finest.

    • 86 Critic Score
    A superb arcade racer that's a feature or two away from greatness. [Feb 2006, p.88]

    • 83 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A tense and spooky strategy roguelike that's as satisfying as it is harrowing.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Charming, clever and funny, this is one of the best new platformers on the PC at the moment. Recommended.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A short but exceedingly sweet indie project that's less about innovation, more about crafting an unforgettable experience. [Sept 2009, p.76]

    • 86 Critic Score
    No other game comes close to the major league statistical detail offered in this addictive simulation of our national pastime. [Sept 2007, p.60]

    As beautiful as the background and characters are, the entire game has a slightly dated look to it. Once players delve into the story, though, the sense that the graphics belong to a game from two years ago disappears, and only the world of Septerra matters.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    It runs perfectly in a window while you're doing something else on your PC; attend to it in free moments to rack up loot, levels, new spells and satisfaction. [Nov 2010, p.86]

    • 86 Critic Score
    Like a reunion concert of a band you once loved, or a candy shop selling a particular brand of candy that brings to mind childhood summers of sun and sea and all that other cliched crap, Broken Age is a well deserved chance to remember the old days and realize that they're still closer than they might sometimes feel—even if the second part is a little further away than intended.

    The "Quake III" engine has been stretched to its limits here, but it still gets the job done. [Sept 2003, p.70]

    Bigger and more stable than ever, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion will happily strip-mine your life of its free time.
