Dark Souls II Gets a T (for Teen) Rating
I honestly don’t understand the ESRB’s games rating system. I’m sure that they have a very particular set of criteria that triggers a specific rating slapped on the box.
However, I really don’t understand why Dark Souls II is getting a T rating after its precursor, Dark Souls, was rated M. The confusing thing is that the ESRB’s descriptions of the two games have almost no differences.
Star Trek: The Video Game (PS3) Review: He’s Dead, Jim
At this point, there is nothing I can say at add to the conversation about Star Trek: The Video Game. The consensus puts this games in with Aliens: Colonial Marines and The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct in a three-way race for the worst game of 2013. It’s a shame because I had high hopes for it considering that it was a Star Trek game developed by a pretty good Canadian developer.
Since nothing I can write will be a revelation when it comes to this game, I thought I’d take an in-depth look at everything good and bad in Star Trek and make it the most detailed review you can find of this game.
Building (Critical) Consensus: Star Trek: The Video Game
You know, I was looking forward to getting a review copy of Star Trek: The Video Game. Then it turned out that they weren’t sending out review copies of Star Trek. Turns out that I was spared from a game so bad that I’ve been forced to use the classic Star Trek double facepalm rather than the game’s box art as we usually do.
The problems with Star Trek: The Video Game are probably too numerous to list here. However, the big ones are terrible AI, clipping issues, issues forcing you to restart the game, not having drop-in, drop-out co-op and the PC version’s online co-op not working. As a result, it’s joined Aliens: Colonial Marines and The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for worst game of 2013. As with the other two, there’s so much potential in Star Trek and it’s all been completely squandered.
