Journey – Review

March 9, 2012

Custom-built to satiate the gamer need to explore; to push against every boundary to find its limits; to suss out solutions by intuition and trial and error.

Tekken – 3D Prime Edition – Review

February 24, 2012

Tekken takes the cake with its ridiculous web of intrigue that makes sense of pandas battling ogres, and a ballooning roster of dinosaurs and robo-girls.

Final Fantasy – XIII-2 – Review

February 10, 2012

Exploring the game’s gorgeous environments and manipulating the fast-paced battle system is a joy, but the story and characters miss the mark.

Amy – Review

January 27, 2012

The environments are largely bland, the frame rate is jittery and distracting, and the characters and dialogue are rough and feel unfinished.

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 – Review

December 30, 2011

Many of the characters from the original game have been tinkered with, adding new moves and adjusting their power balance. Everything you want in an expansion.

Super Mario 3D Land – Review

December 9, 2011

Super Mario 3D Land grabs the torch from Galaxy 2. You’ll be hopping on end-of-level flagpoles and collapsing bridges under Bowser’s feet like the NES original.

Rayman Origins – Review

November 18, 2011

The best-looking sidescroller ever made, but its presentation isn’t just defined by its gorgeous, colorful artwork. It’s got style and personality.

Battlefield 3 – Review

November 4, 2011

Beautiful maps, tight controls, and a satisfying progression system. Outstanding audio, and a focus on vehicles sets the stage for many one-of-a-kind moments.

Spider-Man – Edge of Time – Review

October 28, 2011

A disaster forces modern-day Amazing Spider-Man and futuristic Spider-Man 2099 to work together across time, communicating through picture-in-picture.

The Sims 3 – Pets – Review

October 21, 2011

Sims games have always been trying to create the most ridiculous, chaotic situation possible. Adding pets is a surefire way to elevate the insanity.

Forza Motorsport 4 – Review

October 21, 2011

Meticulously detailed tracks and cars, narration from Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson, and an Autovista mode that allows you to poke around fully-featured interiors.

X-Men – Destiny – Review

October 14, 2011

It’s pretty astounding how a license with such limitless potential as X-Men has managed to inspire so many terrible videogames

Supremacy MMA – Review

October 14, 2011

Supremacy MMA is in kind of a dead zone. Good since it leaves it free of competitors, but bad because interest in gaming versions of MMA seems to have cooled.

Rage – Review

October 7, 2011

Astonishing detail brings barren but beautiful environments to life. Everything is crafted with an artistry that understands the adventure in wide-open spaces.

Dark Souls – Review

October 7, 2011

A survival horror in the truest sense, and as harsh as it is, it’s never less than compelling. The unhurried pace of the combat is addictive.

BloodRayne – Betrayal – Review

September 30, 2011

A great sense of rhythm and balance: Your blades might slice through hulking blood sacks one minute then spark and clang against armored swordsmen the next.

Resistance 3 – beta – Review

August 19, 2011

Buggy matches, inability to connect to a match, frozen matches, post-match freezes before you’re rewarded; this beta has a weapon wheel of frustration.

F.E.A.R. 3 – Review

August 5, 2011

The series’ tight and responsive gunplay, coupled with its addicting (and not copied nearly enough) slow-mo mechanic, makes for another great-playing game.
