  • Yakuza 3 Review

    There you are minding your own business, casually idling the afternoon away walking the pleasant neon-lit streets of Okinawa on the way to the local noodle bar when a gang of spiky-haired street punks chase you down an alleyway to start a fight; it’s no wonder you get a little bit annoyed. Tho...

  • Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening Review

    When Dragon Age: Origins was released last year, gamers were exposed to one of the best role-playing game entries to grace a home console Sure, it had its flaws – mostly concerning visuals and lag - but its intricate story and characters made for a one of the best RPG experiences of 2009. Play...

  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Review

    To say that the PS3 is inundated with first person shooters would an understatement of epic proportions; it's absolutely suffocated by them. With 49 games in the genre already clogging up the shelves, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 represents the latest entry into that sea of shooters hoping to set itse...

  • Lunar: Silver Star Harmony Review

    Role playing games are a dime a dozen, but a good role playing game only comes along once in a great while. It seems a lot of the classic RPGs get remade countless times, usually touting better graphics, more monsters and quests, smoother gameplay, and richer music. Lunar: The Silver Star is one suc...

  • Final Fantasy XIII Review

    With a glittering legacy that spans over 20 years it’s inevitable that a whole heap of expectation rides on the wings of every Final Fantasy game’s release. Living up to that sort of pressure and creating a game worthy of bearing the Final Fantasy name is an unenviable task, but Square E...

  • God of War III Review

    Since the God of War series launched in 2005, we’ve journeyed alongside Kratos through the depths of hell, annihilated hordes of demonic creatures in a gory clash, and defeated Ares to take his place as the new God of War. It’s a franchise based heavily on intense, fluid combat, enormous...

  • Resident Evil 5 - Desperate Escape Review

    Snapping closely at the heels of the cinematic masterpiece that is Lost in Nightmares, Capcom’s second helping of Resident Evil 5 digital goodness – dubbed Desperate Escape – reacquaints players with the familiar action-orientated antics of the franchise, ditching puzzles and explo...

  • MLB 2K10 Review

    Baseball is one of America’s oldest and most favorite pastimes. However, its translation to the videogame market has been anything but apple pies and ice cream. Sadly, capturing the essence and enormous details of baseball in a game has resulted in some decidedly weak efforts (take, for instan...

  • Heavy Rain Review

    A simple question is posed while playing Heavy Rain: How far will you go to save someone you love? But the game offers so many more questions than that little tug on emotions. How can you truly care about imaginary characters in a videogame? How can nearly every step of your gameplay experience impa...

  • Resident Evil 5 - Lost in Nightmares Review

    Resident Evil 5’s Lost in Nightmares sub-chapter is essentially a love letter from Capcom to the most die hard of RE fanatics, signed sealed and delivered with a firm stamp of nostalgic approval. Have no illusions; Lost in Nightmares is a totally disparate beast from the main adventure, replac...

  • Dante's Inferno Review

    Fighting your way through an adaptation of what is widely considered one of the greatest works of world literature is uncharted territory for a videogame. So when it was announced Visceral Games and EA were working on a game based on the poem Dante's The Divine Comedy, it's easy to see why we were a...

  • BioShock 2 Review

    Returning to Rapture is a lot like visiting Disney Land as an adult. It doesn't have that same awe-inspiring presence, the locals are still hostile and a bit tweaked, and while all the sites (and amusements?) are familiar, there's still a welcoming sense of nostalgia that makes the long lines worth ...

  • MAG Review

    One of the most overplayed and overproduced videogame genres is the first-person shooter market. We say overplayed as a substantial chunk of hardcore gamers flock to FPSs in droves, often ignoring the chance of dipping their toes in to other genres. The basic formula for the FPS has been in place fo...

  • Dark Void Review

    Dark Void saw some significant hype leading to its release, though ultimately this was unjustified in a final product marred by shoddy gameplay mechanics and a decidedly lackluster storyline. That’s not to say the concept behind the game wasn’t solid – aerial combat, a jetpack, and...

  • Bayonetta Review

    Bayonetta is a deceptive beast. On the surface, it may seem like a load of self-indulgent, ostentatious old cobblers looking to transfix you with its dazzlingly ludicrous cut-scenes, but dig a little deeper, and you’ll soon discover that developer Platinum Games has managed to pack in what man...

  • Darksiders Review

    The video game industry seems to have an emphatic love affair with the end of the world. You’ll find that not much has changed with the start of 2010; the apocalypse theory is alive and well, albeit growing more than a little old. Darksiders takes the end of the world theory, and runs with it ...

  • Assassin's Creed 2 Review

    An assassin’s job is to eliminate a target with cunning stealth, blend in with a crowd, and when necessary use brute force to accomplish his objective. They live in the underbelly of society, but appear as an everyman, only to pounce on helpless prey with lightening fast attacks. This was the ...

  • 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...

  • Buzz! Quiz World Review

    Trivia buffs are likely familiar with Sony’s Buzz franchise, including the obnoxious host who bares the same name as the game. If you have a group of friends who frequent trivia nights at local bars, you may instead want to give the latest addition in the series, Buzz! Quiz World, a shot and t...

  • God of War Collection Review

    When we first heard that Sony was planning on releasing God of War I & II on PlayStation 3, we were more than a little excited to get our hands on the disc and see how Kratos stacked up in high definition. Developed by SCE Studios Santa Monica, God of War remains one of Sony’s most celebra...

  • Dragon Age: Origins Review

    RPG fanatics have a new champion on the PlayStation 3 in BioWare’s epic Dragon Age: Origins. Quite simply, this is one of the best RPGs to grace Sony’s black box, and we are instantly reminded of why this genre is so popular. Origins boasts one of the most intricate, compelling narrative...

  • LittleBigPlanet Review (PSP)

    When LittleBigPlanet was released last winter, Sony appeared to have a new mascot and a champion for its fabled black box. SackBoy would go on to wow audiences and critics alike with its physics-based gameplay, eye-popping artistic presentation, catchy soundtrack, and the community that Media Molecu...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Review

    You would be hard pressed to find another franchise more firmly embedded on the public consciousness over the past few years than Call of Duty. Since the series’ emphatic leap from WWII-era first person combat to the more contemporary shenanigans faced in 2007’s Call of Duty 4, developer...

  • Tekken 6 Review

    When it comes to Tekken, there are certain aspects that will inevitably register at the very mention of Namco Bandai’s venerable beat ‘em up franchise. Juggles that don’t just bend the rules of reality but crash them under an iron fist, ten-hit combos, ridiculously muscular old blo...

  • Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time Review

    Every once in a while a game comes out that is as charming and funny as it is amusing and easy to play. For Insomniac Games, that ‘every once in a while’ seems to happen every couple of years, with the latest incarnation arriving in the form of Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time...
