  • 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...

  • NCAA Football 09 Review

    Author's note: Unlike any review previously done here on PlayStation Universe, I feel that this review will need to be divided into several parts. The first part will handle the bulk of the title including Dynasty mode, Campus Legend mode, gameplay elements and mini-games. However, the second par...

  • Battlefield: Bad Company Review

    Welcome to the 222nd Army battalion, otherwise known as B-Company. This “elite” group of America’s finest is what other soldiers like to call Bad Company. It’s a G.I. task force that is compiled of misfit soldiers and rebels that the government is basically just sending out t...

  • Top Spin 3 Review

    Tennis may be the only sport in the world where grunts are common practice with each successful play of the ball. However, does Top Spin’s transition into the next-generation on PlayStation 3 happen to be grunt worthy for tennis fans and enthusiasts alike? We happen to think so, and though the...

  • Metal Gear Online Review

    War has changed. It's not about nations, or ideologies. It's not even about profit, resources, or ethnicity. It's an endless series of proxy battles fought by mercenaries and machines. War, and its vast consumption of human life, has become a rational, well-oiled business transaction. War has change...

  • Civilization Revolution Review

    Civilization Revolution is Sid Meier’s latest attempt at bringing his Civilization franchise to console crowd. While the strategy genre often translates poorly to consoles, but Meier’s has taken this challenge very seriously, and it shows. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the w...

  • NASCAR 2009 Review

    Ricky Bobby and Tom Cruise couldn’t save NASCAR 08 from the disaster that was EA Sports’ first attempt at next generation stock car racing. That disappointing entry hasn't exactly paved the way for NASCAR 09. With a year of development under its belt, the question still remains: Is it si...

  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Review

    [Editor’s note – PSU will be covering Metal Gear Online in a separate review in the near future] As the latest installment in Konami’s critically acclaimed stealth franchise, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots arrives on the scene accompanied by a substantial weight. By th...

  • 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...

  • GRID Review

    Welcome David, your car is ready in your garage. This is what I was treated to every single time I loaded up Codemasters' latest racing title, GRID. Whether your vehicle is one of the new Audis fresh off the lot or just a low-end Lacetti, GRID will welcome you into its world and prepare you for what...

  • LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures Review

    Tired of playing in a galaxy far, far away? If so, Traveller’s Tales is back with an all new addition to their LEGO franchise. LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures offers up fans of the series one game packed with every adventure from the 1980s films. While the game does take you throug...

  • SingStar Review

    While karaoke games have come and gone on home consoles, only one has truly dominated the market -- SingStar. With the release of SingStar onto the PlayStation 3, the world was subjected to experiencing some of the worst vocal talents it has to offer – some of the best as well. This is London ...

  • PixelJunk Monster Encore Review

    PixelJunk Monsters Encore, developed by Q-Games, is the expansion pack for the tower defense-style game known as PixelJunk Monsters. This was a long time coming for a lot of us who enjoyed setting rainbows ablaze on each of the original game's villages. The expansion hasn't included anything innovat...

  • Grand Theft Auto IV Review

    Grand, theft, and auto. These three words, when separate, hold little weight. When conjoined, however, they represent pushing boundaries, confronting the man and provoking society at large. I’m talking of course about the most innovative and controversial franchise to date, Grand Theft Auto. W...

  • Warhawk -- Operation: Broken Mirror Review

    The guys over at Incognito seem to be doing everything they can to make your Warhawk playing time one of the better experiences on the PlayStation 3. With a booster pack and a free update already released, Incognito has given players the opportunity to utilize a Dropship transporter, a wrench to rep...

  • FrontMan Wireless Guitar Review

    Guitar Hero III and Rock Band don’t get along. Well, strictly speaking, that doesn’t make any sense, but due to some silly legal squabbling, the official guitar peripheral for each game isn’t interchangeable with the other. Simply put, us gamers got screwed. Nyko jumped on the oppo...

  • The Destroyer Rock Band Pedal Review

    Here's the situation: You're in a groove, about to pass Iron Maiden's infamously-difficult 'Run to the Hills' on Expert Drums for the first time. Suddenly you hear a loud crack, and to your dismay, you view a broken bass pedal beneath your feet. If you haven't figured it out yet, this was the case f...

  • 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...

  • God of War: Chains of Olympus Review

    Kratos is one rad dude. When not slaying the Gods of Olympus or beasts of epic proportions, the Ghost of Sparta spends his free time stomping the Blades of Chaos directly into some unfortunate Cyclops’ eye. Such activities are proudly flaunted in Ready at Dawn’s God of War: Chains of Oly...

  • Condemned 2: Bloodshot Review

          If you’d give us a nickel for every time we’ve hit a bum in the face with a toilet seat in the last week, we’d be rolling in dough right now. Outside of that bizarre bathroom encounter on Monday (we don’t want to talk about it), these events have tak...

  • Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters Review

    Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters first made its debut early last year on Sony’s PlayStation Portable. As with many titles on the system, Size Matters has since made the transition from handheld to home console, having now ended up on the PlayStation 2 a little more than a year after its initia...

  • Dark Sector Review

    “It’s time for heads to roll.” Digital Extremes’ latest title, Dark Sector, which is being published by D3 Publisher, decided to take that quote and make it literal. Their new sci-fi, action packed, third-person shooter seems to do everything right and very little wrong. From...

  • Patapon Review

    Do you sometimes look at people playing Guitar Hero or Rock Band and just laugh at how ridiculous they look? You’re about to join their exclusive club with the head-bobbing, foot-tapping, rhythmic hand motioning game, Patapon. Looking back to 1997 with the release of Parappa the Rapper from So...

  • Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds Review

    Beautiful blue skies and freshly cut grass can only mean one thing - it’s golf time! The Hot Shots Golf franchise makes its way into the high definition era with Hot Shots Gold: Out of Bounds.
