  • Warhawk Review

    Don’t be alarmed if you find yourself blown up more than once simply because you’re caught unaware admiring the stunning view. Never has anyone seen such huge draw distances. When you take the power of a newer console to make something newer and better, using the hardware to accomplish t...

  • Madden 08 Review

    Electronic Arts' most famous franchise, Madden NFL 08, returns with fresh animations and a new arsenal of gameplay. The Madden franchise is definitely known as one of the longest running franchises in videogame history. Fortunately, Tiburon got its act together with 08 and the result: the best versi...

  • Transformers PSP Review

    Everyone’s favorite shape changing robots have experienced a recent revival, on the toy, television, and big screen front. Michael Bay recently took charge of the Transformers license to generate a box office blast, and as a result we have been given the opportunity to play another Transformer...

  • Virtua Fighter 5 Review

    Virtua Fighter’s eponymous debut back in the early 1990s signified one of the most crucial transitions in beat ‘em up history that changed gaming forever; the polygonal leap to 3D. Indeed, despite remaining one of the most venerable series that is still happily chugging along over a deca...

  • The Bigs (PSP) Review

    Roaring fans, incredible plays, smashing hits…of course we’re talking about baseball, America’s past time. Although the illustrious sport may have fallen to the wayside as far as recent projects are concerned, 2K Sports’ newest title, The Bigs, aims to bring baseball back in...

  • PaRappa the Rapper Review

    Returning from the feel-good 90s is everyone’s favorite paper-thin street poet, PaRappa the Rapper, in his first appearance on the PSP. A classic franchise and arguably one of the highest impact titles of the rhythm game genre, PaRappa’s entrance into the handheld world should herald a h...

  • Rainbow Six Vegas Review

    After months of delays, PlayStation 3 owners can finally shout “Viva Las Vegas!” During this latest retreat to Sin City provided by Ubisoft, you’ll have the opportunity to drink, gamble, and perhaps stop a terrorist invasion. Actually, while only the latter is available, it’s...

  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma Review

    To fill out “adept and skilled ninja fighting machine” for an occupation on your tax forms requires tough work, and it certainly isn’t an easy occupation to wake up to. Lucky for us, Ryu Hayabusa is back, and sexier than ever. From the genius’s at Team Ninja, the subsidiary c...

  • Shrek the Third Review

    Everyone’s favorite sarcastic ogre is back from his movie debut to grace the gaming world with yet another movie-licensed game. No, we’re not talking about Vince Vaughn (sorry Vince). Of course we mean Shrek, as portrayed by the remarkably talented Mike Myers. Shrek the Third represents ...

  • The Darkness Review

    Demonic entities, gruesome violence, colorful characters, and an entertaining storyline are all part of what makes The Darkness one of the better licensed first person shooters seen in a long time. Developed by Starbreeze, The Darkness makes a great transition from its gritty comic book roots to the...

  • F.E.A.R. Review

    Originally an impressive first person shooter title for the PC, and the Xbox 360 a year later, F.E.A.R. now blasts its way onto the PlayStation 3. Unfortunately for PS3 owners, the apple has strayed far from the tree. Nex-gen…whattt? F.E.A.R. hit the top of most PC gaming charts when ...

  • Def Jam: Icon Review

    What do you get when you put a plethora of Def Jam-licensed rap music, some “gangsta” artists and a story of corruption, death, and greed into a game? The answer: Def Jam: Icon. Thus begins the journey into the third iteration of Electronic Arts' hip hop series. Developed by EA Chicag...

  • Crush Review

    Blending interesting mechanics from both puzzlers and platformers with a decent storyline, Crush is a refreshing and needed addition to the PSP library. Players assume the role of Danny, an insomniac and generally troubled young man. Forced to deal with your mental illness with the help of hypnosis ...

  • Calling All Cars Review

    If Calling All Cars has to be summed up in a single word, that word would be, without a doubt, “fun". And that's exactly what David Jaffe, known for the awe-inspiring God of War, wants it to be. The gaming masses were taken-aback when he announced he was done with big games, but after pla...

  • Spider-Man 3 Review

    Oh Spidey, it’s certainly been a while. Last time we hung out in your universe you were cel-shaded and looked like a comic book. Well now you’ve got a fresh coat of paint and you’re back for more web-slinging fun… right? Kind of? Developed by Treyarch, Spider-Man 3 places...

  • Final Fantasy XII Review

    Final Fantasy XII is the latest addition to the epic series of role-playing games for the PlayStation 2 console.  The hugely successful series is renowned for its iconic characters, airships, chocobos and pointy-hatted mages, but RPG staples aside – the series always delivers an emotional...

  • Armored Core 4 Review

    Armored Core 4, the first next-gen entry in From Software's prolific mech combat series, was expected to be a major advancement. Not only is it a disappointment next to its action kin, but an unfortunate step back for the franchise. For those who aren't familiar with Armored Core, know that it stand...

  • Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection Review

    Tekken fans around the world used to mourn that they would never be able to play the Japanese Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection on their consoles. Namco announced that it was porting the Japanese arcade-only title to the PSP, which is a fantastic game but simply not enough for hardcore fans. Thankfully Na...

  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Review

    The launch of PlayStation 3 touted a decent line-up of titles, though it was sorely lacking one genre. The only RPG available, Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom, was a flawed, last-generation experience. That's why PlayStation gamers were so ecstatic for the recent launch of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivio...

  • Go! Sudoku Review

    Sudoku, the little number game that we see everywhere these days, hit the PlayStation Store for download last winter. For the uninformed, Sudoku is a puzzle game in which you arrange the numbers 1 – 9 in nine 3x3 blocks. The rules are pretty simple: you can’t have the same number in the ...

  • God of War II Review

    Since God of War 2 is likely the PS2's swan song, let us briefly reflect on what made the system so great: lots and lots of games, split into an impressive stable of worldwide development support, and Sony's willingness to get behind unique ideas (Amplitude, Shadow of the Colossus, etc.) and support...

  • Sonic the Hedgehog Review

    It’s Sonic’s 15th anniversary and he is trying to get things started by adding a new addition to the already great line-up that Sonic Team has produced. There’s no better way to do this than bringing the series to next-gen consoles or more specifically PlayStation 3. In this versio...

  • Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire Review

    In short, Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire is nothing for anyone to be excited about. The visuals are terrible and the gameplay is choppy. The games mechanics are crap and the final version being presented is horrible. This seems more like an outline for a game than anything. If the game had been delay...

  • Formula One: Championship Edition Review

    What is Formula One? Under the assumption that most Americans get their vehicular racing in the form of NASCAR, it is necessary to provide a little background information, as Sony so graciously forgot to when they plopped Formula One Championship Edition into non-European territories. Formula 1 i...

  • Okami Review

    In the land of Nippon (Japan), a mammoth monster has been released upon mankind. As Okami Amaterasu, you must fight the evils of the world and restore the land of Nippon to its previous peace.
