  • Mirror's Edge Review

    By using the increasingly popular free-running activity of Parkour as its theme and mixing it with a story of murder and intrigue, EA’s DICE Studio certainly deserves credit for thinking outside of the conventional box. Despite some thrills along the way though it’s an experiment that ul...

  • Madagascar 2 Review

    Latching onto the coat tail of every big movie release hangs its videogame companion, generally a multi-platform title whose developer hopes will make them a quick buck from those naive enough to think that a game, which has been bumbled together quicker than you can say “money-grabbing leech,...

  • Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe Review

    With the possibility of upsetting its legion of fans it was a brave move by Midway to change a winning formula, but after 15 years, and considering over a dozen games have been born from the Mortal Kombat franchise, it was arguably an action that was long overdue.

  • 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

  • [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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.
