Pure – Review

December 1, 2008

With sterling presentation and an adrenalized experience with every session, Pure easily stands with Burnout Paradise as the best racing game of the year.

007 – Quantum of Solace – Review

December 1, 2008

It still has a little of that “good enough” movie tie-in mentality. Makes little effort to incorporate the trademark Bond style into the maps or presentation.

NHL 2K9 – Review

November 1, 2008

No big innovative leaps this season, but it improves in all the right ways. The solid, simple gameplay feels a little more responsive and satisfying.

Facebreaker – Review

November 1, 2008

The cartoony design of the boxers and comic book presentation is distinctive and attractive, but the concepts for the characters are out of the WWE reject pile.

Mercenaries 2 – Review

October 1, 2008

The sheer amount of extra content, from weapons challenges to side missions, in addition to the lengthy core story means that you’ll never be bored.

Guitar Hero – Aerosmith – Review

October 1, 2008

A stripped-down version of Guitar Hero III with Aerosmith songs. The band’s songs are incredibly fun to play, whether or not you know them or even like them.

Kung Fu Panda – Review

September 1, 2008

The designers took to heart the stylish look of the movie and seem to have been genuinely inspired when translating it into a gaming world.

Transformers – The Game – Review

February 1, 2008

The recent movie was lame or a triumph, depending on your devotion to the cartoon. For the game, there’s no debate: It’s not fun to play. It looks gross.

BioShock – Review

January 1, 2008

Already the defining game of this generation of consoles, BioShock would’ve been an amazing game even if its concepts were hampered by audio/visual constraints.

The Darkness – Review

November 1, 2007

The trials and adventures of characters in other games may resonate deeper, but there are few games that can bring their stories to life with this much impact.

Spiderman 3 – Review

August 10, 2007

Swinging around Manhattan in Spiderman 3 is fun. Unfortunately, the one thing the game gets very right isn’t enough to overshadow its many faults.

The Bigs – Review

July 27, 2007

Accessible, fast-paced, arcade-style hitting, pitching, and fielding. Brawls. An entertaining create-a-rookie mode, and an addictive homerun/destruction derby.

Marvel – Ultimate Alliance – Review

March 9, 2007

Top-down Gauntlet-style hack and slash adventure, this distinguishes itself by offering the most colorful, detailed environments ever seen in this type of game.

Tony Hawk’s Project 8 – Review

March 2, 2007

As the first Tony Hawk game built from the ground up for the current generation of consoles, you might think this is a complete overhaul. You’d be wrong.
