  • F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin Review

    A great American president once said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Now let’s amend FDR’s famous quote for the 21st century. “The only thing we have to fear is F.E.A.R. itself.” Monolith Productions’ F.E.A.R., or First Encounter Assault...

  • F.E.A.R. 3 Review

    A good horror game has some common themes. There’s always eerie music and ambient sounds, segments of subtle suspense, heart-pounding action sequences, creepy settings, and of course a truckload of blood and gore. F.E.A.R. 3 doesn’t deviate far from that equation, but its lacklustre stor...

  • 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 ...

  • F1 2011 Review

    Genuine racing games are much harder to come by in comparison to the genre stretchers such as Need for Speed and Split/Second. One of the few genuine racing games available are the Gran Turismo games, which cover nearly every aspect of racing even down to cart racing. F1 2011 takes on a stance of sp...

  • F1 2013 Review: Codemasters' latest racer misses the apex

    Yearly sports games always face criticism for not changing enough. It's hard to make massive tweaks when the sport itself doesn't change. Like FIFA and Madden before it, Codemasters' F1 series has also faced this negative commentary since they got the license in 2009. Does F1 2013 do enough to take ...

  • FaceBreaker Review

    Electronic Arts’ inaugural title in the publisher’s Freestyle brand name is none other than FaceBreaker. Developed by the team that brought you Backyard Boxing, FaceBreaker's crowning highlight is an innovative technology called "real-time facial deformation," allowing gamers t...

  • Fallout 3 Review

    It’s hard – but all too easy – to imagine: a nuclear Judgment Day. We’ve narrowly avoided it under the watchful eyes of skilled leaders in the past, but it’s a frightening possibility that we must recognize and strive to prevent in the years and decades to come. But wha...

  • Fallout: New Vegas Review

    Creating a worthy sequel to a critically acclaimed and commercially successful game is often more than a developer can chew. Many sequels have fallen short, while others, like Uncharted 2 or Red Dead Redemption, clearly utilized what worked in the original entry and improved upon them on nearly ever...

  • Far Cry 2 Review

    Tired of run-of-the-mill shooters? Far Cry 2, developed by Ubisoft Montreal, is far from generic. More of a spiritual successor to the original game than a sequel, Far Cry 2 plunks you down in a 50 square kilometer slice of Africa and sets you free. Is it the journey of a lifetime, or the stuff of n...

  • Far Cry 3 Review

    I was tucked behind some tall tropical grass, taking aim with my camera to highlight the pirates of an enemy outposts. They were quickly marked, and after spotting a strategic opening, I slid from the tall grass to a pile of wood. I had the enemies' paths down, I could tell they were drunk (the ...

  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review - 2007 has never been so futuristic

    When a game released in 2013 has the tagline 'The year is 2007. It is the future,' you know it's going to be crazy, absurd and insane. That's exactly what Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has absolutely no relation to the game Ubisoft released last y...

  • Farming Simulator Review: Watching the digital grass grow

    Ah, the simple life. 5.00 a.m. wake-ups, 12-hour days of seeding and threshing fields, and then the long weeks and months of waiting to reap what is sown. Welcome to the farming life in Farming Simulator on the PlayStation 3…just without the cow manure. As the name of the title suggests this...

  • Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake Review

    Some of the PlayStation 3’s biggest franchises have made the transition to Sony’s handheld device in recent years. Entries like Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid, God of War, ModNation Racers and LittleBigPlanet are all coming or already available on the PSP, meaning our favorite games ...

  • Ferrari Challenge Review

    Have you ever owned a Ferrari? Well, neither have I. Since you clearly can’t afford to spend $217,310 on a brand new 2008 Ferrari F430 (and if you can, why are you reading this review instead of driving your awesome car?), should you pick up a $60 video game instead? Ferrari Challenge Trofe...

  • Fez PS4 Review - ''a dimension-shifting triumph''

    Fez, the acclaimed indie excursion - which formerly premiered on the likes of PC and Xbox 360 – has finally gotten its belated release on Sony systems, and it’s about time, too. At the forefront of the indie platforming resurgence since its protracted development begun way back in 2007, ...

  • FIFA 09 Review

    [Editor’s Note: I understand soccer should be respectfully labeled as football, but because the majority of our reader base is from North America, we’re going to utilize the word soccer instead. Don’t be so offended and please don’t litter the comment section with Soccer> ...

  • FIFA 10 Review

    Was it really only a few years ago that the FIFA series was in danger of becoming stagnant? Minor incremental updates and graphical face-lifts year after year left the franchise in desperate need of re-invigoration. Someone at EA Sports clearly got the message loud and clear from FIFA’s loyal ...

  • FIFA 13 PS Vita Review

    "It’s in the game." That’s what it says when any given EA Sports game is loaded up as it has done for as long as I can remember. Every year when a new FIFA or Madden or any other game EA Sports decides to churn out releases, each title tends to incorporate some new features ove...

  • FIFA 13 Review

    FIFA 12 was a revolution in sports games, and the first annual installment in a long, long time that brought drastic changes to the pitch. So what do you do after you revolutionize your own game? While you shouldn't sit on the sidelines and wait another few years to make improvements, FIFA 13 pr...

  • FIFA 14 PS4 Review: better graphics, animations for an already polished experience

    EA Canada didn't have to make sweeping changes to improve FIFA 14 for next-gen systems. It already released a great football game on current-gen consoles earlier this year, and while the PS4 version is largely unchanged, it's just slightly better enough to push the series ever so slightly into the f...

  • FIFA 14 Review: A different game, for the better

    There is something very different about FIFA 14 compared to the previous few installments. The game finally feels different--really different. The graphics, presentation, and career modes haven't changed much, but the gameplay is, in fact, different. Notice I paid careful attention not to designate ...

  • FIFA Soccer 11 Review

    If you are anything like us, you probably kept FIFA 10 close to your PlayStation 3 for the seasonal lulls in the video game release schedule. Whenever we faced a grueling month-long freeze in quality games, we booted up our PS3 with FIFA 10 for an online match, continued to progress our team in Mana...

  • FIFA Soccer 12 Review

    Releasing a game every year is a mighty challenge for a developer, especially if it’s a sports game that has no campaign or story to differentiate the annual installment. There’s always the risk that the game will grow stale without any substantial tweaks to the gameplay or modes, but th...

  • FIFA Soccer Review

    For a PlayStation Vita launch title, FIFA Soccer is an impressive example of how a developer can cram so much detail into one game. It’s also a good representation of the new hardware’s capabilities, and what we may expect in future sports games. Not only do you have a game that looks an...

  • FIFA Street Review

    For anyone with a competitive spirit, there are few things in life better than beating someone one-on-one. Sure, a team victory against bitter rivals is always reason to storm city streets—then again, you may find the same result if your team loses—but there’s something so much mor...
