Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood: The Da Vinci Disappearance Review

Originally posted here.

Story complaints aside, I’ve been very fond of the latter two Assassin’s Creed games. Ezio has been a very compelling character, even if his arc in Brotherhood isn’t quite as strong as it is in the second game. One great aspect of Ezio’s journey has been his relationship with Leonardo Da Vinci. The two have a sort of James Bond/Q bromance going, so having an adventure devoted to them is very welcome.

Dead Space 2 Review

Back in 2008, EA shocked the gaming community by injecting a few original (say it ain’t so!) properties into their Christmas line up. Among them was a little sci-fi horror game called Dead Space that shot, stabbed, and mutilated its way into the hearts of gamers everywhere. Taking the best parts of Alien, The Thing, and Event Horizon, Dead Space delivered a surprisingly scary experience. Unlike the superhuman characters of the Resident Evil games, Dead Space kept itself refreshingly simple by making the player take the role of Isaac Clarke, an engineer trapped in a horrifying situation. The creatures were scary, the AI clever, and the weapons just useful enough without being broken. Now, two years later, Visceral Games has bestowed us with its much anticipated second installment. Does it make for a satisfying sequel? On the whole, it’s safe to say it does. (more…)
