Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 – Review

October 2, 2015

Except for an HD reworking a couple years back, the Tony Hawk series has been missing as of late, after previously appearing with incredible regularity for more than a decade.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter – Review

July 31, 2015

Eerie PC hit The Vanishing of Ethan Carter won accolades for its gorgeous visuals and offbeat narrative. Making its debut on consoles, it’s easy to see what the buzz was about.

Batman – Arkham Knight – Review

July 17, 2015

Rocksteady announced Batman: Arkham Knight would be the conclusion to their Arkham saga, and now that it’s here, it’s easy to declare that they went 3-for-3 with its Batman games.

The Crew – Review

December 19, 2014

The Crew, an ambitious new open world racer, aims to take things one step further with an entirely seamless sea-to-shining-sea drive across the 50 states.

Sunset Overdrive – Review

November 7, 2014

It’s nice to see something that recalls the big, fun, full-color games of years past, like Jet Set Radio, Jak & Daxter, and Ratchet & Clank.

Forza Horizon 2 – Review

October 3, 2014

Plenty of games have captured the joy of racing, but precious few have reproduced the joy of driving, and none have done it as well as Forza Horizon 2. Every little detail on your cruise through this replica of Southern Europe seems crafted by people who know what it is to love to drive.

Destiny – Review

September 19, 2014

Just like a space shuttle doesn’t shoot up into the sky instantly, Destiny – the super-hyped new original game from Halo-makers Bungie – takes a little while to get going.

Metro Redux – Review

August 22, 2014

I love it when a developer has a clear vision that comes to glorious life on the screen. It’s a beautiful thing, increasingly rare.

Drakengard 3 – Review

Anyone who’s played the cult classic Nier probably did the same thing I did: Rushed online to find out who made such a charming, off-the-wall adventure.

Lego The Hobbit – Review

April 25, 2014

The world of The Hobbit is a perfect fit for the Lego games. It’s the kind of dense fantasy world that you want to see Lego-fied.

Broforce – Review

April 18, 2014

Rambo. Terminator. Die Hard. You love these bro-ed out movies because they stream testosterone directly into your willing eyeballs. Only problem is, when you dust off the ol’ VHS tapes and give these flicks another spin nowadays, you remember that these films had actual plots. Dialogue. Acting, for god’s sake. Yuck.

Fable Anniversary – Review

February 7, 2014

Fable Anniversary, an HD reworking of the 2004 action RPG, is released within a week of the latest Final Fantasy XIII. The two couldn’t be more different.

Call of Duty – Ghosts – Review

November 15, 2013

Ghosts strips down the franchise formula a bit, and at times, it feels a little too conservative. Still some of the best core shooter gameplay around.

Sonic Lost World – Review

November 15, 2013

The Sonic franchise just doesn’t get the respect in the current platformer landscape as Mario, Rayman, or indie successes like Super Meat Boy or Spelunky.

Skylanders – Swap Force – Review

November 1, 2013

With games like Skylanders, kids can have both imaginary adventures with their toys and ones that come to vibrant digital life on the screen.

Rayman Legends – Review

September 20, 2013

The developers of Rayman Legends have taken the ol’ “if it ain’t broke…” approach with this follow-up.

Lost Planet 3 – Review

September 13, 2013

The Lost Planet series has been nothing if not interesting as it charted its course across this console generation.

Splinter Cell – Blacklist – Review

September 6, 2013

The best-playing games are always worth coming back to. Bayonetta, Gears of War. Guitar Hero/Rock Band. Splinter Cell: Blacklist now sneaks onto that list.
