  • 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...

  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations Review

    I have always been a decent Naruto fan, not quite going to the lengths of making costumes and cosplaying, but when I ran out of English dubbed episodes of the popular anime, I quickly and eagerly moved onto the Japanese subtitled ones. I made it through most of Shippuden before I finally lost intere...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • NASCAR The Game 2011 Review

    Full disclosure: I am not a fan of NASCAR, but like most other males on this planet, I have a deep desire to drive 200 mph as thousands of spectators cheer in anticipation of my ultimate crash. With that in mind, it’s hard for me to say NASCAR The Game 2011 does a good job of representing ...

  • Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise Review

    Alright, I admit it. When I was given this code to review, I was apprehensive. After all, the last Naughty Bear title was anything but a great effort. However, 505 Games has done what few have done in the past -- they have improved upon the original tenfold, making this successor both highly addicti...

  • NBA '07 Review

    NBA ’07 is Sony’s latest iteration of their flagship basketball franchise. Aside from the obvious comparisons drawn from other titles, such as NBA2K7, NBA ’07 seems to hold its own. At first play NBA ’07 presented itself as another mediocre launch title, but in the hands of a...

  • NBA 08 PSP Review

    Developed by SCE Studios San Deigo, NBA 08 is the latest in Sony's take on the NBA franchise. In this year's edition, Sony provides a number of brand new mini-games including Block-a-Shot, Elimination, Fast Break, and Shootin' Bricks as well as enhances past features like Conquest Mode and online mu...

  • NBA 2K11 Review

    If you were coming of age in the late ‘80s or early ‘90s like we were, you probably witnessed healthy competition in just about everything in life—Mario vs. Zelda, Nirvana vs. Guns N’ Roses, Sega vs. Nintendo, Jim Kelly vs. Troy Aikman, G.I. Joe vs. Transformers. But there wa...

  • NBA 2K12 Review

    Perhaps we spoke too soon. When PlayStation Universe reviewed NBA 2K11, we said that it would be the best game on the market for quite a while. Well, it turns out we were wrong, as a new champion is here, and it has arrived only one season later. But how does NBA 2K12 fare? As with last year&rsqu...

  • NBA 2K13 Review

    Run, don’t walk, RUN out to buy this game now. Seriously. There is nothing about NBA 2K13 that should drive you away. The 2K sports team have scored again, doing the near impossible by improving upon last year’s title in almost every way. Almost. After popping in the disc, you will...

  • NBA 2K14 Review: beautiful execution with little things standing in its way

    The end of a console generation puts up a wall that makes all current-generation titles feel incredibly limited in comparison to what’s to come, and the effects are felt across most games in most genres. This hypothetical wall can be even taller in annualized games, since improvements are mean...

  • NBA Jam Review

    (Editor's Note: Due to shipping problems, this review has been posted later than we initially planned) Reboots, re-imaginations, excessive sequels, and nostalgia for the sake of irony are common trends in movies and television, but these days it seems like the videogames industry is starting to la...

  • NBA Live 08 Review

    EA's John Madden Football franchise is the leader in sports videogames. The leader in the Basketball genre is another story to say the least. EA has its hands full competing with 2K Sports' NBA 2K8 and Sony's NBA '08. There is much competition between basketball games this year as the genre face...

  • 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...

  • NCAA Basketball 10 Review

    It is well into fall, and here in the U.S. that means one thing -- college basketball season. Fans across the country (and the world, for that matter) are pulling out their favorite college team sweatshirts, buying tickets to local domes and arenas, and rooting for their alma mater. In the video gam...

  • NCAA College Hoops 2K8 Review

    The newest addition to 2K Sports college basketball series, NCAA College Hoops 2K8, is ready for game day. Last year’s installment was a little lackluster – 2K8 was looking to change that, and it has achieved partial success. College Hoops 2K8 contains several brilliant new adjustments, ...

  • 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...

  • NCAA Football 11 Review

    It was fourth and long with SU down by a field goal during the fourth quarter of a rivalry match up against Pitt. The quarterback goes into a play action fake, and throws a perfect ball to a well-guarded receiver in the end zone. Pittsburgh’s defender nearly nabs the ball, but it bounces into ...

  • NCAA Football 12 Review

    The NCAA Football franchise saw some notable improvements last year. With so much attention put into the gameplay and dynasty mode, it appeared EA Sports had found itself in a position where it would be unable to improve upon the formula for the 2012’s entry. On the surface, NCAA Football 12 h...

  • NCAA Football 13 Review

    It must be hard to make sweeping changes to yearly-installment sports games because few developers stray from their tried and trusted formulas. Luckily for the NCAA Football franchise, the formula is quite strong. The gameplay is consistently smooth, the presentation feels like a television broa...

  • NCAA Football 14 Review: fourth and long waiting for next-gen turnover

    Yearly titles, especially the sports genre, need to step up their game these last few months before the next generation of consoles are released. We can expect better graphics, better A.I., better physics, better online functionality, and better gameplay with next-gen titles. But these last few year...

  • Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Review

    Screeching around a turn in a Porsche Boxter Spyder, we swept past our closest opponent and overtook first place. The competition was fierce from the other drivers, but with a tap of nitrous we were firmly in the lead. We stayed in the wrong lane, deftly avoiding the sparsely-placed oncoming tra...

  • Need for Speed: Most Wanted Review

    Sitting behind the wheel of just about any of Fairhaven's numerous real life cars is an exhilarating experience, but the real joy in Need for Speed: Most Wanted rests in vehicle discovery, the connected content, and the get-to-business attitude of this open-world racer. Whether competing online with...

  • Need for Speed: Rivals PS4 Review: The next generation of multiplayer

    Looking back at console launch line-ups of the past, the racing genre seems to always have a presence. For PlayStation systems, it was always a Ridge Racer, until the PlayStation 4. And with DriveClub pushed back, Need for Speed: Rivals is the only choice for gamers itching to push the pedal to the ...
