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.

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

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.

Grid 2 – Review

June 7, 2013

In a lot of ways, Grid 2 is the perfect racing game. It finds that perfect balance between super-simulation racers and arcade racers. It looks fantastic.

Remember Me – Review

June 7, 2013

Once I set eyes on Neo-Paris circa 2084, I was on board. Every environment is brought to life with brilliant color and intense attention to detail.

After Resident Evil 6 stuffed stealth, driving, and air combat into its bloated but entertaining adventure, it’s the next step for the franchise to streamline.

Dead Island – Riptide – Review

April 26, 2013

The zombie apocalypse is not gonna be pretty. Dead Island: Riptide incorporates this inconvenient truth much better than many other undead action titles.

Injustice – Gods Among Us – Review

April 26, 2013

The pitch is that NeatherRealm will take everything it learned with the reboot of Mortal Kombat and apply it to a fighting game within the DC Comics universe.

A greatest-hits of sorts, compiled to educate the curious on the history of Agent 47, and how the Hitman series has maintained its reverent status.

January 18, 2013

The story isn’t anything terribly memorable, but DMC has an incredible surreal look that mashes up the level design in all sorts of cool and unexpected ways.

December 28, 2012

Far Cry 3 delivers a full-bodied open world game, showing strength in all areas of its design rather than focusing on one aspect and leaving the remainder to wither.

Assassin’s Creed III – Review

November 23, 2012

Assassin’s Creed III shares a lot of its structure with its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. That’s mostly a very good thing.

Resident Evil 6 – Review

October 5, 2012

Spooky mansions, city streets crawling with zombies, a Nemesis-like creature, rooftop rocket launchers: Tons of callbacks to the series’ past show up.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – Review

September 21, 2012

A gorgeous, great-playing game. The large character models are even sharper and bolder than those in Tekken 6, and the backgrounds get an upgrade as well.

August 24, 2012

As you explore this dangerous landscape, you start to get your bearing by taking the early steps towards becoming a true pirate adventurer.

The Amazing Spider-Man – Review

July 6, 2012
