  • LittleBigPlanet 2 Video Review

    When it was released more than two years ago, Media Molecule turned more than a few heads with LittleBigPlanet. Since then, the adorable Sackboy has served as an unofficial mascot for the PlayStation brand, representing one of the most artistic, addicting, and clever platformers to date. The LittleB...

  • Mass Effect 2 Review

    Some role-playing games are an endless grind, encouraging players to head out into a sandbox environment and slay beasts for three hours at a time. In return, you might — if you're lucky — reach the next level or get your hands on that elusive piece of armor you've been working toward. E...

  • Angry Birds Review

    Angry Birds has become something of a phenomenon in the rapidly-growing world of smartphone gaming. After swiftly rising to the top of Apple’s app chart in 20 different countries, official reports now reveal that over 50 million people worldwide have played the physics-based puzzler. That ...

  • Kung-Fu Live Review

    More than three years after it first launched, the PlayStation Eye has finally found a regular place on top of millions of T.V. sets worldwide thanks to the launch of PlayStation Move. And - if the free-motion technology that Virtual Air Guitar has created for its new PlayStation Network brawler, Ku...

  • Dead Nation Review

    If there’s one thing that videogames have most definitely taught us over the years, it’s how to kill zombies. If hordes of the undead ever do rise from their graves and flood our city streets, you can guarantee we'll be among the first in line at our local sports shop to pick up a ba...

  • Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom Review

    Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom follows the familiar yet instantly accessible theme of discovering friendship in peculiar places. However, where other similar stories - notably ICO - prevail at conveying this theme with grace and reverence, the Forsaken Kingdom takes the silly, awkward approach to bu...

  • Tron Evolution Review

    Hats off to Propaganda Games, who has tried to break away from the movie-based videogame stigma by creating a universe befitting of Tron’s cult status, capturing with some style the visual aesthetic of the original, cult classic. The evocative neon-lit blue, black and orange high-tech industri...

  • NBA Jam Review

    (Editor's Note: Due to shipping problems, this review has been posted later than we initially planned) Reboots, re-imaginations, excessive sequels, and nostalgia for the sake of irony are common trends in movies and television, but these days it seems like the videogames industry is starting to la...

  • Splatterhouse Review

    Handjob dungeon: now that sounds like a great place to visit, doesn’t it? Sadly, it isn’t. It turns out that Handjob Dungeon isn’t a sex den where full-blooded males’ dreams come true, but it’s actually just a play on words and an indication of the type of playground wi...

  • Gran Turismo 5 Review

    In the five years that have passed since Gran Turismo 4 arrived on PlayStation 2, PSU Towers has experienced all sorts of life changing moments, from births and marriages to deaths and divorces. It really has been that long, hasn’t it? Inevitably, the long gap between GT4 and GT5, a life-time ...

  • Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Review

    Screeching around a turn in a Porsche Boxter Spyder, we swept past our closest opponent and overtook first place. The competition was fierce from the other drivers, but with a tap of nitrous we were firmly in the lead. We stayed in the wrong lane, deftly avoiding the sparsely-placed oncoming tra...

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Review

    J.K. Rowling is a true master at capturing the excitement and fear of adolescence. Sure, she penned a series of seven novels based on a young wizard and his search to find and destroy he who must not be named, but it’s not just the setting and magical world that fixates audiences, it’...

  • EA Sports Active 2 Review

    If you live in the U.S., chances are you are acutely aware of the obesity problems plaguing our schools. Anything affecting children gets the most attention, but the problem stretches well beyond the schools and into our office buildings. While the rest of the world has pockets of problems, Amer...

  • Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Review

    Caught in a moment of passion with an attractive young lady, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's time-traveling hero, Ezio, is rudely interrupted by the sound of gunfire. News reaches him quick that the papal army are descending on Moneteriggioni in their thousands, hell bent on destroying the familiar ...

  • CSI: Fatal Conspiracy Review

    The world of videogames can be a lonely place, especially if you are an adult and in a serious relationship with someone who isn’t particularly a huge fan of gaming. With that in my mind, we’ve looked for games that have something to offer both the diehard fan and those who still con...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Review

    November is with us once again, and with it comes the one franchise we review each year that creates as much discussion behind the scenes as it likely will in our comments section. The lines are drawn, the sides are taken, and the division runs deep on just about every facet of the Call of Duty seri...

  • James Bond 007: Blood Stone Review

    More than fifty years ago, Ian Fleming created a fictitious spy who has graced countless novels, movies, and video games. The name 007 conjures up thoughts of bombs concealed inside of pens, ultra-fast sports cars, shaken (not stirred) martinis, sexy Bond girls, classic British actors, and of co...

  • The Fight: Lights Out Review

    “Don’t wave your hands around like you're chasing flies,” warns bare-knuckle boxing trainer, Danny Trejo prior to your violent journey into the lawless world of street fighting. His gruff and aggressive voice fits perfectly with the dark and gritty theme that throbs through the...

  • Rock Band 3 Review

    Let’s not waste anyone’s time: Rock Band 3 unequivocally ranks among the best rhythm games ever. It may in fact be the best, for one simple reason: this "game" is secretly a simulator. For the uninitiated, here’s a brief explanation. Rock Band used to be about peopl...

  • Shaun White Skateboarding Review

    Shaun White is one of the most successful and talented young athletes of our time — just look at all the gold hanging around his neck. There is no doubt that he is an athlete here to stay, representing team U.S. on the slopes, and wowing audiences on half-pipes. He’s even acquired enough...

  • SingStar Dance Review

    If you’ve ever wanted to dance like a 12 year-old Michael Jackson, or slide across the dance floor Jamiroquai-style, or even strut your stuff like pretty boy Jordan Knight from New Kids On The Block, then SingStar Dance may be right up your street. Those three artists and more combine to c...

  • Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Review

    We jump at any chance we get to venture back into the boots of John Marston. As one of our favorite titles of the year thus far, Red Dead Redemption did so many things right and remains a definitive contender for the prestigious accolade of Game of the Year 2010. Rockstar's latest batch of downloada...

  • God of War: Ghost of Sparta Review

    If you need a reason to dust off your PSP, or if you aren’t yet hip to Sony’s handheld console, there is yet another title on offer that defines the experience of gaming on the go. There are already plenty of games that show the PSP’s technical prowess, and even more that remind us...

  • The Shoot Review

    There are a few in-game extensions that just go hand-in-hand with the application of motion controls. Swords, racquets, lightsabers, and boxing gloves all make sense, but the precise motion tracking of Move and arcade shooters go together like peas and carrots. So with a slew of Move titles competin...

  • DJ Hero 2 Review

    In a world full of bland rhythm-based music games, last year's DJ Hero sought to change things up a bit by injecting a little funk and flare in to the mix. It succeeded, in large part, because it provided a fresh approach to the genre, an interesting peripheral and a music mix not seen in previous t...
