Review: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

The Tomb Raider name is attached to games that aren’t known for being solid experiences, so the name is viewed by many to be part of an underwhelming and dried out series. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is an attempt to rejuvenate the Tomb Raider brand without having people write it off as another Tomb Raider game. With the camera now pulled overhead and twin-stick shooter mechanics implemented, it does enough to change how Tomb Raider games are played, but it doesn’t do enough to get you excited about playing it.

Review: Monday Night Combat

It’s easy to label Monday Night Combat as a Team Fortress 2 clone because of the similarities in the class based system, and its visual presentation. On the surface it might seem that way, but Monday Night Combat takes Team Fortress 2 elements and blends it together with the Tower Defense genre to provide fast-paced third-person action.

Review: LIMBO

While most modern video games aim for a realistic appearance with intense detail and a wide colour pallet, LIMBO takes a simpler approach by using only black and white on a 2-D plain. While keeping the appearance simple, it still manages to deliver making this another great Summer of Arcade title. The most common complaint about LIMBO is that for 1200 Microsoft Points, 3-4 hours of gameplay is not enough. While this may be a problem for some, this seems to just be a cover up for the real fault in LIMBO

Review: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

The idea of downloadable content is still being experimented with because more often than not, consumers don’t feel like they’re receiving enough content for their money. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is the third DLC for Borderlands, and I think Gearbox Software understands what the consumer wants -- a healthy amount of game content for around $10.
