Don't let the kiddie graphics put you off!

ogmonicker | July 20, 2013 | Review of Scribblenauts Unlimited (NA)

This game is a blast, and it requires you to use your inner childhood imagination. Within minutes of playtime I was amazed by how extensive is the collection of objects you can spawn, and how many adjectives you can add on to that. Before I knew it, I was solving puzzles all while riding a blue Cthulhu wearing a crown.

Even better, is the game's object editor. You can create your favorite celebrities, your favorite fictional characters, and even yourself! With the Steam Workshop, you can download the creations of others.

It's a great game worth a purchase, if you're looking for a sandbox-like experience. As long as you don't mind the gameplay being a bit dull and repetitive, you can sink several hours into it and get your money's worth. Not to mention, it's a great game for the kids.

Classics aren't perfect

ogmonicker | June 19, 2013 | Review of Sonic Adventure™ 2

At the time of its release, this game was hailed by many as the pinnacle of the Sonic series, and to this day, this remains true to many fan's opinions. Unfortunately, after being ported to the PC over a decade after its release, one might realize the game was not so perfect after all. Iffy controls, poor sound effects, and a laughable script with corny voice acting all bring this game down.

Had Sega decided to make an HD remake and added multiplayer, rather than make a lazy port, I would actually recommend this game to others. However, because they didn't, I'll just say this: get it only if you wish to relive your childhood.

Underrated and overlooked

ogmonicker | June 19, 2013 | Review of Hitman: Absolution - Professional Edition (NA)

Despite its departure from other Hitman games, this title stands on its own as a tricky stealth game. It has its flaws, and fans of the series may be disappointed with the different mechanics introduced, but I would still recommend this game to anyone. It's a surprise so many people disregarded the game, it should've definitely garnered more praise.
