  • 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...

  • Borderlands Review

    The ever-growing first-person shooter and role-playing game crossover genre has received its latest addition with the release of Gearbox Software’s Borderlands. Set in Pandora, which has an old West style theme, you and three friends can set out on an epic adventure to do two things: kill lots...

  • Trine Review

    Many of you may be familiar with the age-old platforming formula of ledge hopping, item-collecting and pole-swinging, but Fronzenbyte has refreshingly designed its latest PSN offering, Trine, with a modern day twist. Though the Finnish developer has still re-used many of features that we've become a...

  • Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Review

    The mammoth task of shrinking the multi-award winning, multi-million selling, open-ended Grand Theft Auto series onto the PSP and somehow transforming it into a game that stands up to the quality of previous titles is an unenviable one, but Rockstar Games has done a magnificent job. Without compromi...

  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Review

    With the release of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Naughty Dog has created an epic game that rivals the storytelling of Hollywood’s finest feature films, with seamless gameplay that sets a new benchmark for future releases. The stunning graphics and fluent cut-scenes deliver the ultimate visual p...

  • Half-Minute Hero Review

    Half-Minute Hero is one of those rare gaming experiences that just works – it’s fun to play, it’s easy to learn, and it’s surprisingly long for a PSP title. The game plays homage to the classic 8-bit RPGs but with a modern take that utilizes the portability of Sony’s ha...

  • Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Review

    War. The great philosopher Plato once remarked that only the dead have seen the end of it. Now gamers across the world can get a little closer to the brutal, unforgiving reality of modern war in Operation Flashpoint's long-awaited sequel, Dragon Rising. What sets this title apart from any other gene...

  • Brutal Legend Review

    Back in the early 1970s, music meant something. The musicians were gods among screaming devout fans, flailing around on stage in quintessential glam-rock fashion. The world of metal was full of thick spike belts and armbands, devils, fire, horned beasts, and gothic figures. Behind the scenes of thes...

  • EyePet Review

    Do you remember Tamagotchi, the stupidly addictive hand-held digital pet that made its maker a fortune in the 90’s? If so, you’ll be instantly familiar with the concept of EyePet, which is essentially a modern day take on that time-consuming, some would say time-wasting, activity of nurt...

  • 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 ...

  • Zombie Apocalypse Review

    Ah, Zombies. If there’s one thing you can say about our shambling, decomposing friends (aside from lack of personal hygiene and possessing an insatiable desire for eviscerating folk bare-handed and scoffing down on human flesh) is that they’ve acquired a certain ubiquity about them over ...

  • Gran Turismo (PSP) Review

    In the racing and driving simulator genre, few games offer up the same allegiance amongst fans as the Gran Turismo series. After an arduous wait, the game was finally skimmed-down for its own PSP release and let loose for fan consumption on October 1, 2009. The game’s launch coincided with Son...

  • Demon's Souls Review

    There are few games out there that are as dark and menacing as From Software’s hard-hitting action RPG Demon’s Souls. Released earlier this year in Japan, Atlus USA is bringing this excruciatingly difficult game to North American audiences on October 6, exclusively for the PlayStation 3....

  • Mini Ninjas Review

    Not too long ago, a videogame geared towards children would almost automatically mean it was nothing more than a superficial, paper thin experience for consumers, even though some of those games were a lot of fun for both kids and adults alike. We think back to all those games based on Disney animat...
