Review: Haste

15 Jul 2014 0
  • iOS

W, T…where's an F when you need one? Seriously, how often are games iPhone-only these days?
Haste is about as unoriginal as games get without being mere clones of other games. It involves connecting adjacent letters in a matrix into words, much like Boggle, but with...

"Yeah, take that Monique! And you too Future Device Which I Assume Can Hear and Understand Me!"
The Blackwell games are jazzy slices of paranormal New York biography, punctuated with the beats of a '50s P.I. procedural.

Blah blah space battle, et cetera et cetera orbital weapons platforms. Come on, let's talk spice rates!
Star Traders 4X rounds all the requisite space-strategy bases for a game of its nomenclature; you find new systems, colonize them, strip them of natural resources and, in turn,...

History repeats itself.
Did you hear that there's a new Blu-Ray special edition of The Life Aquatic coming out? I already own the film, but I'm very happy to buy it twice to get a Wes Anderson commentary track and some Seu Jorge bossa nova Bowie music videos.

Mistakes were made.
You're Marcus, a meek, middling historian struggling to survive in ancient Rome. His patron, Artus, is an ambitious general with designs on the Imperial throne. A poison-savvy widow, devil-may-care poet, chaste priestess, wicked Emperor, and—most importantly—a fortune-telling spirit round out the cast of this...

Before the dark times
If there's one problem with Klaus-Jürgen Wrede’s seminal tile-laying game, Carcassonne, it’s the dearth of meeple fatalities. Seriously, you can play an entire game without one monk getting eaten by a giant fish or a farmer getting crushed by giant skulls.
