  • 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...

  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 Review

    When you’re as good as Tiger Woods is, does it really matter if there are other golfers on the course or not? The same approach can be taken with the Tiger Woods PGA Tour franchise. Year after year, EA Sports rolls out yet another improved entry in this venerable franchise, attracting legions ...

  • 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...

  • Ferrari Challenge Review

    Have you ever owned a Ferrari? Well, neither have I. Since you clearly can’t afford to spend $217,310 on a brand new 2008 Ferrari F430 (and if you can, why are you reading this review instead of driving your awesome car?), should you pick up a $60 video game instead? Ferrari Challenge Trofe...

  • TNA iMPACT! Review

    TNA iMPACT! came running out of the gate swinging in early February of this year when Kurt Angle, who happens to be one of TNA’s biggest superstars, was quoted saying, “It's a no brainer. We're going to win the war definitely (against THQ’s upcoming title).” It’s been s...

  • The Last Guy Review

    Proof that big things come in small packages is no less apparent in The Last Guy, a decidedly simple, yet horribly addictive PlayStation Network offering from the boys over at Sony Computer Entertainment’s Japan Studio. However, don’t let this stripped-down affair deceive you; The Last G...

  • PAIN Amusement Park Review

    With the Amusement Park finally open for business, it was time to put my season pass to good use and jump back into a world of PAIN. Despite some glaring setbacks in the original title, The Amusement Park expansion takes a firm step in the right direction, essentially representing everything that PA...

  • 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...

  • FaceBreaker Review

    Electronic Arts’ inaugural title in the publisher’s Freestyle brand name is none other than FaceBreaker. Developed by the team that brought you Backyard Boxing, FaceBreaker's crowning highlight is an innovative technology called "real-time facial deformation," allowing gamers t...

  • Bionic Commando Rearmed Review

    How often have you heard the word “remake” and cringed? Most likely more than you’d care to remember. It’s been 20 years since Capcom first released Bionic Commando for the original NES, and it's making a return in the form of a PlayStation Network download. While remakes oft...

  • Ratchet and Clank Future: Quest for Booty Review

    While our favorite Lombax’s tail is as long as ever, his latest tale has been cut down in length significantly. Insomniac’s downloadable Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty is shorter and cheaper than a full retail game, yet it still retains that high-end console quality that we ...

  • 1942: Joint Strike Review

    1942: Joint Strike is the next installment in Capcom’s successful 194X series. Much like its predecessors, Joint Strike is a classic vertical shooter that also enables you to play with another person via the internet or from the comfort of your own home. Though some may confuse this iteration ...

  • Madden NFL 09 Review

    The Madden football franchise has come a long way since its inception in 1988 when it became the first 11-on-11 football experience. With the release of Madden 09, EA Sports is celebrating the 20th season in Madden football history, something that is unheard of in the gaming industry. Not only has M...

  • Siren: Blood Curse Review

    Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Japan’s internal studio, the release of Siren: Blood Curse signals the influx of several horror-theme outings on PS3 in 2008, preceding forthcoming entries such as Silent Hill: Homecoming and Electronic Arts’ forthcoming Dead Space. More than just...

  • PixelJunk Eden Review

    Druggies, take notice; I’ve discovered a quicker, cheaper, and legally acceptable way to get your fix of psychedelic imagery. It’s called PixelJunk Eden, and it’s really, really fun. Developed by Q-Games of PixelJunk Monsters fame, PixelJunk Eden is a revolutionary platformer fo...

  • Soul Calibur IV Review

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a tale of souls and swords was eternally retold. Namco Bandai has just released the latest installment in its critically acclaimed fighting franchise, Soul Calibur IV. Apart from getting groovy with the force, the basic formula of the series remains the...
