  • Professional Baseball Spirits 2013 Review: "A sports game unlike anything seen on the western market"

    Bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, 3-2 count, and the batter steps back into the box. The pitcher stares the batter down but he reciprocates the pleasantry as they try and gain a mental edge. Here comes the windup, the pitch, and the swing. Any baseball fan has heard this a million times as it is the most r...

  • Guacamelee! Review

    A game like Guacamelee doesn’t bring you back to the “glory days” solely because it’s retro-inspired—it brings you back because it gives those same classics that made you fall in love with the genre a run for their money. A spot-on mix of old and new, Guacamelee caters ...

  • Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Review

    Being a sniper is one of those jobs that requires a hearty regimen of discipline, since success is dependent on precision. There’s also the whole thing about holding the lives of random people in one’s hands--it makes sniping so empowering. With the aid of CryENGINE 3, City Interactive s...

  • Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien Review

    The somewhat-obnoxiously named Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien exudes a voluminous aura of indie charm, but it's particular gamers who will fall in love with Commander Video's latest adventure. With nary a story beat to miss, you're in it for the gameplay, and Runner 2 goes...

  • Crysis 3 Review - Human After All

    In this console generation's twilight months, it's easy to associate brand fatigue with the most sterling examples: annualized franchises that change very little in their thirst for early-November retail domination. To suggest that one might simply tire of a triple-A series whose main releases, by c...

  • BioShock: Infinite Review

    As soon as the credits started rolling at the end of BioShock Infinite, I scooped my jaw up from the floor and jumped on my laptop to start emailing my co-workers here at PSU. Just about everyone on our team was already knee deep in the story, and while I was careful not to spoil anything, I couldn'...

  • Jeremy McGrath's Offroad Review

    Racing games come in all shapes in sizes. From simulators like Gran Turismo to arcade racers such as Ridge Racer, the genre has seen a diverse range of titles catering for all types of gamers. Jeremy McGrath's Offroad, developed by 2XL Games, certainly fits into the arcade racer category, thanks to ...

  • 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...

  • Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk Review

    Kickass swords? Check! Crazy buff dudes? Check! Half-naked female characters? Check! Complex dungeons? Super check! All of these are not in Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, Gust’s newest addition to the PlayStation 3’s RPG catalog. Welcome to a reverse-troped world of girl power in...

  • Mass Effect 3: Citadel Review

    Replaying the Mass Effect trilogy in recent weeks has thrown the series, and what it means to gaming, into sharp relief. The tragic journey of Commander Shepard united some of history's most memorable characters across race and gender, across species and sexuality. The fates of these men and women&m...

  • DmC: Devil May Cry: Vergil's Downfall Review

    Ninja Theory’s first collaboration with Capcom, a take on the Devil May Cry universe, panned out very well for the studio and fans alike—critically, at least. Immediately after having completed development on DmC, Ninja Theory started working on a new downloadable chapter that would give...

  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma II Plus Review

    Starting way back on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988, the Ninja Gaiden series has gone from strength to strength in subsequent years (Not counting the disaster that was NG3, which i'd rather not remember), though to some fans the constant remaking of previous titles has proven a little fru...

  • Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable Review

     Earth Defense Force 2017 carved out a very niche audience for itself, but it was undeniably—almost inexplicably—seen as one of the most fun cooperative experiences when it was originally released in 2007 for Xbox 360. D3Publisher and developer Sandlot decided to port this third-per...

  • God of War: Ascension Review

    I can honestly say in all my years of gaming I’ve never had to fight off a dozen bleating, spear-wielding goat-men from inside the belly of a python. Nor have I ever had to square up against a giant of a man who happens to have the face and arm of a frightening-looking old geezer protruding ou...

  • MLB 13: The Show Review

    The magic behind annually-released titles is the fact that a relatively similar experience can be had each and every year with changes that enhance each title along the way. San Diego Studios more than likely knows more about baseball than most baseball players do, considering the amount of dedi...

  • 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 ...

  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Review

    The third installment of the storm series hits the PlayStation 3 soon, the third act following the series Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, the anime follows the life of a 16 year old brightly coloured Ninja named Naruto, as he learns to overcome the hatred as he became a host for a Tailed beast at b...

  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn Review

    Just like the divide between the Imperials and Stormcloaks, people are torn when it comes to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Most of us became enthralled the first time that dragon filled the sky as our head's lay on the executioner's chopping block. We stayed glued to our controllers after hundred...

  • Urban Trials Freestyle Review

    Zoom zoom goes the motorbike as we cruise into Tate Interactive’s newest offering into arcade racing platformers. Step into the role of a nameless anarchist, who's mission is tearing through obstacles across city blocks as he brings down the man. The only thing missing is Youth Gone Wild jammi...

  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review - 'Swordplay has never been this much fun'

    A Metal Gear game launches and the PlayStation masses jump on it like the last human alive during a zombie apocalypse. Quality story-telling, high production values and absorbing gameplay have helped elevate the franchise to cult status, so the fact that it’s headed in a brand new direction wi...

  • Aliens: Colonial Marines Review

    A franchise that requires an introduction must not be that great of a franchise, and the same can be said for a franchise that’s falling out of grace. Movie-based games almost never impress, but it’s hard to believe that a coupling between a prestigious developer like Gearbox Software an...

  • Dokuro Review

    Dokuro is a 2D puzzle platform game which oozes charm and has almost a nostalgic feel. A PS Vita exclusive developed by Game Arts and published by GungHo, Dokuro features a protagonist who has fallen madly in love with a princess, who in turn has been captured by an evil monster. Where have we seen ...

  • Corpse Party: Book Of Shadows

    It is the middle of February and I am disappointed. Timing is everything and I feel like I’ve been deprived of a truly scary Halloween night. You see I’ve been playing Corpse Party: Book of Shadows and if this were Halloween I don’t think I’d be opening a door ever again once...

  • Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Review (PS3, PS Vita)

    Sly Cooper's latest adventure is, undeniably, a labor of love. Sanzaru Games clearly understands what makes this franchise special: cartoon antics, tactful innuendos, and a colorful world ripe for stealthy platforming. Indeed, with regards to Sucker Punch's venerable PlayStation 2 trilogy, Sanzaru's...

  • Dead Space 3 Review

    Games in the survival horror genre have found difficulty in capturing enough interest from gamers to achieve great commercial success this generation. For this reason, this console cycle did not see many new games or franchises in the genre. Titles in existing survival horror franchises began to cha...
