  • The Witch and the Hundred Knight Review: Disgaea-killer this is not

    So, imagine you wake up from a long slumber, stretch your arms and legs, clear your eyes of Mr. Sandman’s sprinkles, and find out you’re a slave. No thoughts, no willpower, just a mindless repeating of combat for a cruel, sadistic overseer. That is exactly the feeling I got from The Witc...

  • The Wolf Among Us 'Faith' Review: Fantastic Grimm and gritty nursery crimes

    What do you think makes a great detective game? Grizzled private eyes, beautiful-yet-deadly women, hard-hitting thugs, whiskey, and nicotine might spring to mind, but at no point would you think this trusty formula could be improved by the addition of characters from children's stories and rhymes. W...

  • The Wolf Among Us - Episode 4: In Sheep's Clothing Review

    The penultimate episode of Telltale Games' Fables adaptation gives players more chances than ever to decide what kind of person Bigby Wolf has become. That's because nearly every conversation involves characters who have something to gain or lose from the big reveal of The Crooked Man, the series' n...

  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 - 'Smoke and Mirrors' Review

     While Episode 2 of Telltale's adventure-game take on Fables is a step forward in narrative quality from 'Faith,' Sheriff Bigby's investigations into the supposed murder of Snow White are a bit by-the-numbers, gameplay-wise. The Wolf Among Us, then, feels like an experimental game series for th...

  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3 - 'A Crooked Mile' Review

    While Telltale's latest adaptation of Fables doesn't hit the lofty benchmark set in recent months by The Walking Dead: Season 2, Sheriff Bigby Wolf's search for answers to increasingly close-to-home murders is engaging and well-paced. Everything in The Wolf Among Us feels purposeful, with explanatio...

  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 - 'Cry Wolf' Review

    The ride to the end of Telltale Games' compelling adaptation of Fables does justice to the series' high caliber of storytelling. It's a credit to the entire five-episode arc's treatment of player choice that a great deal of your emotionally charged decisions come back to alter the conversations and...

  • Thief Review: The new face of old stealth

    I went into Thief expecting a next-gen Dishonored, but my expectations were swiftly reset. I'm not ignorant of my gaming history--I know that 1998's Thief: The Dark Project is one of several progenitors of the stealth genre as we know it today, and that 2012's Dishonored was, in fact, largely inspir...

  • Thomas Was Alone Review - the second most fun you can have by yourself.

    Have you ever felt that you don't fit in ? Or have you felt that some days the world just seems wrong and all you want to do is escape ? Well if you have then you've a lot in common with the world of Thomas Was Alone, the new PlayStation platforming game from Mike Bithell. Thomas Was Alone tells ...

  • 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 ...

  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 Review

    Every year a new Tiger Woods game comes out that attempts to build upon its predecessors success, as well as ironing out any lingering issues. This is the gist of all sports game franchises, and in general, Tiger Woods PGA Tour does a decent job of improving year-after-year. That is, of course, cons...

  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 Review

    The Tiger Woods PGA Tour series is the champion of its genre, mostly due to a lack of competition, but also because of its mix of easy-to-learn gameplay and its authentic approach to the sport. But over the past several years, the series has remained stagnant, with EA adding only minimal changes...

  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 Review

    For the best players in the world, golf is a game built on subtlety. Make the slightest change to your swing and you could struggle with the game like Tiger Woods did a few years ago. Tweak things again in the tinniest ways and you could start to win like Tiger Woods over the past year or so. And so...

  • Time and Eternity Review: vibrant JRPG blends anime-style visuals with innovative combat

    Badass armour? Check! Unrealistic buff guys? Check! The world on the precipice of disaster and you’re the chosen one that must prevent the apocalypse? Super check! Welcome to an RPG that has absolutely zero of these staples as we enter a world of teenage love, sorrow, and time travel. Welcome ...

  • Tiny Brains PS4 Review: A puzzling experiment best done with friends

    Tiny Brains draws not-so-subtle inspiration from Portal, and it gets only some of the way toward matching that legendary puzzler's best beats. There's humor that strikes a funny bone in places and falls flat in others, and creative object manipulation, teleportation, and the like are used to bypass ...

  • Tiny Token Empires Review: world domination meets 3-match puzzler

    The ancient European world is at defcon 1 as the Romans, Greeks, Persians and others fight for supremacy in this unique take on the strategy genre. Using a puzzle system to determine attacks, and a tongue-in-cheek script to keep things light, BiP media tries to reinvent a genre that did not get a lo...

  • Titan Attacks Review: Space invading over three decades later

    There is no greater way to honor your most revered inspiration than with a bona fide tribute, and both Puppygames and Curve Studios shoot for the stars with Titan Attacks, a clear preserver of the old-school, intergalactic arcade shooter. The game’s inspiration is pulled directly from retroman...

  • 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...

  • Toki Tori review: charming, challenging and entertaining platform-puzzler

    Much like its titular hero, Toki Tori by Dutch developer Two Tribes, is bit of an odd bird. Proving to be a more grey-matter affirming affair than initial impressions might yield, Toki Tori on PlayStation 3 is a sleek re-imaging of the 2001 Gameboy Color title of the same name. Crucially keeping th...

  • Tokyo Jungle Mobile Review: Sony's quirky animal-'em-up makes the jump to portable gaming in fine form

    Last year, Sony unleashed a rather unique and novel game on the PlayStation 3 by the name of Tokyo Jungle. While flawed, the game proved to be rather enjoyable overall, and now the experience has come to PS Mobile in the form of Tokyo Jungle Mobile. The fact it says 'Mobile' in the title should tell...

  • Tokyo Jungle Review

    Japan is home to some of the most unique and quirky games in the industry, many of which never make it to western shores. There are exceptions of course, one of which is Tokyo Jungle. We have to thank Sony straight away for giving new idea like this a chance. Tokyo Jungle is a PlayStation 3-exclusi...

  • Tomb Raider Review

    How the mighty have fallen. Back in the late 1990s, you couldn’t move for the amount of Lara Croft mania that was sweeping the globe. Our busty archaeologist had not only conquered the gaming world, but her iconic image adorned the bedroom walls of spotty teenagers everywhere, magazine covers ...

  • Tomb Raider Trilogy Review

    The Tomb Raider Trilogy is yet another collection of classics from yesteryear that have received the HD treatment before being bundled together on a single Blu-ray disc. The pack contains a trio of Tomb Raider adventures (hence the trilogy moniker), specifically Legend, Anniversary, and Underwor...

  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Review: Lara's PS4 debut is a shining triumph

    Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider revival last year wasn’t just a monumental success in terms of sales and critical reception; it re-established one of gaming’s most iconic heroines in Lara Croft, making the dexterous archaeologist relevant once again after a major career lull. Sure, T...

  • Tomb Raider: Underworld Review

    Can you believe that it’s been over 10 years since the voluptuous Lara Croft began seducing us with her enticing blend of action-packed exploration, treasure hunting, acrobatics and perceptive puzzle-solving? The success of the series has meant that the foundations laid down by the original...

  • Tony Hawk's Project 8 Review

    The legendary Tony Hawk is riding again in the eighth installment of the popular skating franchise. Neversoft has taken it upon itself to put the popular series on the next-gen systems. This has resulted in the same familiar Tony Hawk gameplay but with far better visuals. What’s In a Name? T...
