  • Resistance 2 Review

    [Editor’s Note: The final score was slightly influenced by the game’s network issues. As these could be remedied at any point, an update to the score is not out of the question in the future.] Resistance: Fall of Man was the pinnacle of the PlayStation 3 launch line-up. While clearly ...

  • SingStar Vol. 2 Review

    SCE London Studios has been busy and that usually means another edition of SingStar is in the works or is being released. In this case, it's both. Not content with shipping its latest instalment, SingStar Vol 2 across North America recently, the company is also busy coding away on a third instalment...

  • The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon Review

    During his illustrious career, which began almost 10 years ago to the day, the plucky doe-eye dragon, Spyro, has matured considerably. After hatching out of an egg and being raised by dragonflies, Spyro began his life with a few simple powers. Eight games later and the video game mascot has transfor...

  • [UPDATE] SOCOM: Confrontation Review

          [Editor's Note: Due to SOCOM: Confrontation receiving its much anticipated patch, we have decided to update our review. This isn't something we normally do, but we felt it was necessary to give a proper representation of what to expect with Confrontation.] SOCOM: Confrontatio...

  • Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Review

    Have you ever played a game based on a movie or TV show that didn’t fail on an epic level? We can discuss games like Full Metal Alchemist, CSI, Harry Potter or even Shrek and still come to the conclusion that each game adaptation is mediocre at best. It’s because of this expected assumpt...

  • Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars Review

    Recently on the PlayStation Network, you may have noticed a peculiarly named title, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. After reading said name, you may have thought ‘Well I never! This piece of software promises you can drive an automobile that can obtain velocities in excess of ...

  • Fallout 3 Review

    It’s hard – but all too easy – to imagine: a nuclear Judgment Day. We’ve narrowly avoided it under the watchful eyes of skilled leaders in the past, but it’s a frightening possibility that we must recognize and strive to prevent in the years and decades to come. But wha...

  • Dead Space Review

    There used to be a time when the survival horror meant solely Silent Hill and Resident Evil. Lately, there are more original properties, like the mind-boggling BioShock or the gruesome Condemned, sprouting up within the genre. Now EA has pushed itself into view with EA Redwood Shores’ inaugura...

  • Silent Hill: Homecoming Review

    Picture the scene, if you will. You’re walking down a deserted, fog-bound street in the middle of summer, flakes of snow falling to the ground all around you. The sidewalk is littered with abandoned vehicles and boarded up shops; the whole town is conspicuously devoid of life. Then, all of a s...

  • Far Cry 2 Review

    Tired of run-of-the-mill shooters? Far Cry 2, developed by Ubisoft Montreal, is far from generic. More of a spiritual successor to the original game than a sequel, Far Cry 2 plunks you down in a 50 square kilometer slice of Africa and sets you free. Is it the journey of a lifetime, or the stuff of n...

  • BioShock Review

    Game of the Year. Immersive storyline. Incredible art direction. Stunning visuals. Unique gameplay. These are just many ways in which one may extol the qualities of 2K’s universally praised aquatic FPS, BioShock. Following months of speculation, 2K Games has finally brought their award winning...

  • Saints Row 2 Review

    The original Saints Row was often looked at as a Grand Theft Auto rip-off. A lot of gamers displayed their distaste for the game's lack of originality and merely thought of it as the bridge to Grand Theft Auto IV. Little did they know that Saints Row would display the staying power and appeal that i...

  • FIFA 09 Review

    [Editor’s Note: I understand soccer should be respectfully labeled as football, but because the majority of our reader base is from North America, we’re going to utilize the word soccer instead. Don’t be so offended and please don’t litter the comment section with Soccer> ...

  • WipEout HD Review

    HD is the new 64, as WipEout returns to a home console in this high definition homage to the WipEout PSP titles, Pure and Pulse. WipEout has not appeared on a home console since the controversial WipEout Fusion on the PlayStation 2, so it's great to see the series back where it originated. WipEou...

  • Rock Band 2 Review

    Rock Band revolutionized the music game genre, allowing users to play with not only a guitar peripheral, but a drum set and microphone as well. Many dubbed it the perfect music game. A year has passed, and Harmonix has crafted a sequel to the original legendary title. While the main formula remains ...

  • Blitz: The League II Review

    What makes a football title great? Some may think that realistic tackles, precision passing and great visuals are the keys to a successful franchise. Midway on the other hand prefers a more intense direction to the sport of football. Blitz: The League II demonstrates how steroid usage, sleazy agents...

  • LittleBigPlanet Review

    Approachable. Brilliant. Classic. Dynamic. Exciting. Fun. Gorgeous. Hilarious. Innovative. Jammin’. Kooky. Lovable. Magical. Numinous. Open. Playful. Quirky. Robust. Splendid. Transcendent. Universal. Vibrant. Wacky. Xenial. Youthful. Zany. LittleBigPlanet. These qualities pervade this ...

  • Linger in Shadows Review

    The demoscene makes its way to the PS3 in a title that will leave some thoroughly confused and others stroking their goatee as they write a detailed analysis on their Mac, pausing only to fix their beret. And other artist stereotypes. Linger in Shadows is not a game. Let's just get that out of th...

  • Valhalla Knights 2 Review

        It’s been a year since XSEED released the original (and disappointing) installment in the Valhalla Knights series. It was a game packed with impressive customization and fast-paced battles, but ultimately featured a shallow storyline and left a lot to be desired. Fast-forwar...

  • Mega Man 9 Review

        In recent years, Capcom has been doing a lot of fan service, and Mega Man 9 is no different. The Blue Bomber returns to his roots in this 8-bit sequel to the original Mega Man series. With a brand new 8-bit engine, Capcom promised a return to the golden age of the original series,...

  • NBA Live 09 Review

       It’s pretty rare that EA Sports has to play catch up on one of its sports titles. The company, which has generally dominated all sports competition since it began, has often-times found itself racing to catch up with its competitors on the basketball court. While NBA Live 08 was a...

  • Armored Core: For Answer Review

    After a few stagnant releases, the Armored Core series seemed to be on the track to irrelevancy. With Armored Core: For Answer, however, developer From Software has managed to bring forth an entertaining mech-filled romp for the PlayStation 3. With gigantic robots at your fingertips, expect some ...

  • Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway Review

    Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway is one of those rare games that manage to capture the realistic emotion and sentiment that true soldiers on the front line experience. The series has always followed the 502nd Parachute Infantry, 101st Airborne Division throughout their trials and tribulations ...

  • LEGO Batman: The Videogame Review

    When Commissioner Gordon flips that switch and the bat signal hits the Gotham sky, you know it’s only a matter of time until the dark knight makes an appearance. Cue Traveller’s Tales with their own unique vision of Gotham City’s caped crusader in LEGO Batman: The Videogame, markin...

  • Baja: Edge of Control Review

    When it comes to real-world off-road racing, the Baja 1000 is like the Indianapolis 500 and the LeMans 24-hour race all rolled up into one exhausting event. Designed to leave you tired beyond measure, every year thousands of people (ironically) drive down to Baja, California to then drive a thousand...
