  • Ultra Street Fighter IV Review: the definitive version of Capcom's seminal beat-'em-up

    Capcom’s Street Fighter IV is often noted for reinvigorating the hardcore beat-’em-up video game scene in the many years following the release of its predecessor. Originally released in 2009, the seminal brawler wowed critics with its lush visuals, diverse character roster, and comprehen...

  • Entwined PS4 Review: a once-in-a-lifetime philosophy

    Entwined is a journey that literally goes nowhere but figuratively encompasses a lifetime. This ambitious title had one of the greatest release date send-offs imaginable, soaring into the PlayStation aether from Sony’s E3 2014 press conference and onto home consoles everywhere. Pixelopus deli...

  • PlayStation Vita Pets Review: Watch dogs have more fun than their owners

    Pet simulation games don’t stand tall in the teeming hierarchy of video game genres and offerings, possessing a reputation that slips it right to the bottom of the quality food chain. The UK-based team at Spiral House examined this glaring issue and went back to the drawing board, aiming to me...

  • Ace Combat Infinity Review: ruling the skies

    It takes a special kind of mentality to want to travel at mach speed, risking death at every turn like a new-age, technological form of dueling. It also takes a special kind of creative team to put the intensity and adrenaline of being a fighter pilot into a game for the home console. Bandai Namco h...

  • Mind Zero PS Vita Review: A potential future Persona-killer franchise

    Very few games become a series, and very few series become fan favorite, instant sellers. So it is always tough for every new IP to live up to games in the genre before them, especially when you look like a Persona clone. Welcome to the world of Mind Zero on the PlayStation Vita. A walking, talking ...

  • Murdered: Soul Suspect Review: an intriguing story with plenty of potential

    Developed by Airtight Games and published by Square Enix, Murdered: Soul Suspect is not only a new IP but a good change of pace from all the action games that have plagued the last generation of the industry.

  • The Wolf Among Us - Episode 4: In Sheep's Clothing Review

    The penultimate episode of Telltale Games' Fables adaptation gives players more chances than ever to decide what kind of person Bigby Wolf has become. That's because nearly every conversation involves characters who have something to gain or lose from the big reveal of The Crooked Man, the series' n...

  • Watch Dogs Review: Identity crisis

    Watch Dogs is a tale of two games, two protagonists, and too many ideas. As I stooped myself in Ubisoft's impossibly hyped blockbuster--arguably the very first next-gen game announced--I started to notice these dualities and how they either compromise or stand as a testament to the game's quality. W...

  • Wolfenstein: The New Order PS4 Review

    In a terrifying alternate reality the Nazis have won World War II, though not in the conventional way. With advanced technology on their side they’ve turned the tide on Europe and have forced the United States to surrender with a heady mix of cyborg dogs, giant robots and pure evil. London lan...

  • Worms Battlegrounds PS4 review

    It’s always struck us as a little peculiar that out of all the fearsome and ferocious predators dotted around the world developer Team17 decided to single out the seemingly docile worm as its sole representative for artillery-based warfare. Whatever the reasons (we’d love to hear them) i...

  • Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigmi's Longest Day Review

  • JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle PS3 Review

    Big guns, big breasts, and more macho-ness than the Macho Man can exude is the standard formula for any fighting game. Well, that is until you meet JoJo and go on his bizarre adventure. Welcome to a fighting game universe where the standard convention of normality is thrown out the window in a way o...

  • Transistor PS4 review

    The screen populates itself with a myriad of fantastical colours, culminating in a shimmering, cityscape backdrop. A woman, resolve tested and chin lowered, stands before a now-lifeless man, slumped against a stone-like fixture; an energised sabre stands triumphantly, having been plunged into the na...

  • Soul Sacrifice Delta Review: much more than a re-release

    A lot of games these days release updated, more enhanced versions a while after launch with the hopes that fans will be interested enough in the little additions to buy the game again. Though definitive, enhanced, and special editions are nice, few come close to packing in content like Soul Sacrific...

  • Sparkle 2 PS4 Review

    Folks hard pushed to find a decent match-three puzzler on PlayStation 4 can rest easy as Sparkle 2, by King Oddball developer 10tons Ltd, is a well-crafted effort which will fill that need quite nicely, even if the lack of multiplayer proves to be a glaring omission. After a narrated introduction...

  • Mugen Souls Z Review: fun combat wrapped around a convoluted mess of a story

    Role-playing games are a genre of video games that can explore any kind of world, any kind of narrative, and are only constrained by the imaginations of its writer and creator. Mugen Souls Z by Compile Heart is one of those games that push the envelope of taste in the west due to the lack of said co...

  • The Walking Dead: Season Two - Episode 3, 'In Harm's Way' Review

    Telltale Games has reached a level of narrative mastery with its Walking Dead episodic series that makes gameplay inconsistencies all the more apparent. That's not intended as a major slight against the latter: the (relatively) seamless shift between exploratory gameplay, riveting dialogue, and inte...

  • Borderlands 2 PS Vita Review: one step forward, two steps back

    Minor performance issues have never held back the enjoyment of delving into the Borderlands world, so having this snarky franchise in portable form would be like having a satirical concealed weapon at all times. The handheld edition of Borderlands 2 has a lot of appeal and an equal amount of issues,...

  • FIFA World Cup Brazil Review: a brief glimpse into the game of soccer

    The FIFA franchise has been a force all its own for a long while, but like most sports games, it has a tendency to favor the fans of the series instead of catering to newcomers. With that in mind, we’ve taken to this smaller outing of FIFA with a different mentality: that of a new player. We a...

  • Child of Light Review: a work of art come to life

    Never in my wildest dreams did I believe a video game could make me believe it was more than just a game. That is, until I played Child of Light. The RPG-platformer's familiar but moving story is brought to life by some of the most exquisite art design I've ever witnessed in game, a moving musical s...

  • Bound by Flame PS4 Review: great action RPG potential in rough packaging

    It takes something special for potential to overtake shortcomings, and that notion holds fast in the gaming industry, where even the smallest of faults can deteriorate the perception of AAA titles. Equally so, something so intriguing can sprout from a new venue that yields something as flawed and ye...

  • Titan Attacks Review: Space invading over three decades later

    There is no greater way to honor your most revered inspiration than with a bona fide tribute, and both Puppygames and Curve Studios shoot for the stars with Titan Attacks, a clear preserver of the old-school, intergalactic arcade shooter. The game’s inspiration is pulled directly from retroman...
