  • Need for Speed: The Run Review

    Driving cross country in America is an experience many dream to undertake but few will ever attempt. Driving cross country while avoiding the mafia and cops, and racing against hundreds of other competitors for a large chunk of change is something no one will ever experience, except in a movie or in...

  • NeverDead Review

    Few games that rest on a single gag have legs to carry it to interesting heights. Modern games require all gears working in perfect harmony to achieve greatness, and if it relies on that single gag, chances are it’s going to trip on itself and fall straight on its face. That is the case fo...

  • NFL Tour Review

    There are awful games, and then there’s NFL Tour. This atrocity of an NFL Street re-imagining manages to defile all our fond memories of the past series due to a seemingly constant string of poor development choices. Let’s explore the painful depths of the most poorly crafted football ti...

  • NHL 09 Review

    The pinnacle of video game hockey has always been NHL 94. Delivered by EA Sports almost 15 years ago, NHL 94 offered an amazing balance of gameplay, entertainment and replay value that most sports games seem to lack…until now. Finally, EA Sports has truly done it again. With the release of NH...

  • NHL 11 Review

    EA Sports knows how to make a great hockey game. Simply look at the sheer number of awards EA Canada seems to land every year for its NHL games, and you’ll get an idea of just how well the game is received. Every year fans ask for something new and improved, and this year EA has finally given ...

  • NHL 12 Review

    EA Sports has nailed another hockey game this year. At this point in the NHL series, it’s getting hard to improve upon the solid gameplay and plethora of modes, but somehow EA Canada manages to make enough tweaks to previous installments to warrant yet another purchase. And in NHL 12, you&rsqu...

  • NHL 13 Review

    EA Sports has worked hard lately to make its sports games even more realistic. With updates to yearly franchises, including FIFA and Madden, the sports games are getting more than cosmetic upgrades. There's a clear mission to make our favorite sports titles play and look like the real deal. For ...

  • NHL 14 Review: an icing that doesn't penalize retro or new players from playing

    The trick behind annualized titles is the attempt to simultaneously change things and keep things the same, which keeps both veterans and newcomers interested in the same content. Profit is a fiscal thing, but those who always want access to more of what we like get that very thing from EA, and the ...

  • NHL 2K9 Review

    It feels like only yesterday that I was playing 2K Hockey on the Dreamcast and reveling in the fact that it was superior to the competition in every facet. Fast-forward seven years and NHL2K has taken a backseat to the competition in terms of realism and authenticity. For the past four months, 2K ha...

  • Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review

    You know a videogame has grabbed your full attention when you step into its world for the first time and six hours later you haven’t even moved for a toilet break. Generally, though not always, it tends to be role-playing games that have the power to absorb me in their open-world environments,...

  • NIER Review

    There is a lot that can be said for a game that tries to cater to fans of multiple genres, and does so on its own legs. However, there’s even more triumph in a game that breaks down the genre clichés, falling into a category of itself: a great game. When looking back through the PlaySta...

  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma II Plus Review

    Starting way back on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988, the Ninja Gaiden series has gone from strength to strength in subsequent years (Not counting the disaster that was NG3, which i'd rather not remember), though to some fans the constant remaking of previous titles has proven a little fru...

  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus Review

    Ninja Gaiden was originally released on March 2, 2004, and it was accepted far and wide for its innovative gameplay and its incredibly high difficulty. Since then, it’s been remade for the PlayStation 3 as Ninja Gaiden Sigma and now for the PlayStation Vita as Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus. This &ld...

  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma Review

    To fill out “adept and skilled ninja fighting machine” for an occupation on your tax forms requires tough work, and it certainly isn’t an easy occupation to wake up to. Lucky for us, Ryu Hayabusa is back, and sexier than ever. From the genius’s at Team Ninja, the subsidiary c...

  • NovaStrike Review

    The PlayStation Network has seen a plethora of top-down shooters since its materialization in late 2006. It began with Blast Factor, the average yet enjoyable cellular shoot-em-up with innovative motion controls. Next came the beautifully addictive Super Stardust HD, a game that caused many (includi...

  • Nyko Zero Wireless Controller Review

    The search for a decent replacement for Sony's official Bluetooth controller is now over. Nyko has recently released a remote called 'Zero' and it leaves Sony's controller in the dust in terms of comfort, design, and everything else you can think of. The Zero controller, which retails for USD 5...
