SimCity Review

Suspended marketing campaign says it all

Just in case we get bogged down reviewing Electronic Arts’ poisoning of an otherwise excellent franchise instead of getting into the nitty-gritty of the game itself, allow us to present a Cheetah Speed review of SimCity up-front (assuming EA has turned that feature back on by the time you read this).

Note: This review was originally featured in the June 2013 issue of the magazine.


Dead Space 3 Review

We’ll add rappelling down the side of a frozen cliff to the list of non-undead-killing things we didn’t expect.The half-eviscerated zombie of first-person shooters

Perhaps if poor Isaac Clarke had been able to switch parts with the late Isaac Hayes, Dead Space 3 might have been a bit less boring. At this point, we’d gladly throw in a few Chef-like wisecracks just to liven up the game a tad—might as well rename this one “Dull Space 3.”
