  • DeathSpank Review

    In this notoriously slow period in the video games calendar we’ve turned to the PlayStation Network this week in our quest for gaming kicks, and boy are we glad we did. From Monkey Island designer Ron Gilbert, DeathSpank arrives on PSN on a wave of positive previews, and despite costing ju...

  • Deception IV: Blood Ties Review

    Deception is a long-running series, starting off on the original PlayStation back in 1996. Though a newcomer to the franchise, and thus unable to compare it to previous titles in the series, sadly this game has left a bad taste in my mouth. Unlike a lot of games, Deception IV: Blood Ties has you ...

  • 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...

  • Defiance Review: A world of trouble

    In the world of video games, Defiance holds a unique position. Developed by Trion Worlds, it is the first game to be released in tandem with a television series of the same name. It is also one of the few MMO games available on PlayStation 3. To see an in-depth look at the Defiance television series...

  • Demon Gaze Review

    Dungeon crawlers are like the Gordon Ramsey-certified Beef Wellingtons of Role-Playing Games. They either come out perfectly from the creator’s mind and can consume your existence in time-warping bliss, or they are underdone, raw, and need so much development that the potential idea goes into ...

  • 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....

  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review

    Finding a game that does more than one thing really well is a daunting task. Sure, you may get a game featuring a great story but lacking solid controls, or you may get a mindless fighter with dreadful dialogue, but very rarely will you find something that hits nearly every mark. Eidos Montreal ...

  • Devil May Cry 4 Review

    Sometimes when you’ve fallen in love with a franchise, it can be saddening to witness the quality drop with each subsequent installment. You saw it happen with Friday the 13th, NBA Live, and even Medal of Honor. Despite that, you’re still usually there on day one of release ready to watc...

  • Diablo III Review: A heavenly journey through Hell

    Written by - Richard Archer If dungeon crawling ever becomes an Olympic sport, medal winners will train with Diablo III, the gold standard of action-RPGs. Diablo III is so good, in fact, that it might be more akin to the performance-enhancing drug of Olympic dungeon crawling--everything else simply...

  • DiRT 3 Review

    There’s nothing better than getting a little dirty and Codemasters sure knows how to make us feel filthy. In DiRT 3 your white knuckles will grip the steering wheel of your favorite rally cars as you race through a variety of courses, ranging from tight corridors in Finland, the watery ter...

  • DiRT Showdown Review

    First, before we get going here, let me preface this review by saying this is NOT a DiRT off-road racing game like you are used to. Now, for those of you still with me, let me explain. For fans everywhere, DiRT has become a name synonymous with great racing games pumped out of Codemasters’ dev...

  • Discovery App Ecolibrium - PS Vita Review

     If you’re a fan of the Discovery channel it’s likely that at some point in the educational channel's existence you’ve watched a documentary about the ecosystem and perhaps enjoyed learning how a community of living organisms works in harmony and sometimes disharmony with our ...

  • Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention Review

    Disgaea 3: Absence Of Detention may be a little confusing for the RPG novice. On one hand its school-based location, cutesy anime style and quirky sense of humour suggests that it’s a game aimed at the young casual gaming crowd. However, as soon as you get past the drawn-out introduction and s...

  • Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness Review: What a JRPG should be

    Nippon Ichi Software is known as one of the top companies for bringing high-profile Japanese RPGs to the western market. Square Enix has Final Fantasy, Atlus has Persona, and NIS has Disgaea. First debuting on the PS2 a decade ago, Disgaea has become the most recognized series for NIS. Now, a long w...

  • Dishonored Review

    Dishonored has something to offer just about everyone. Engrossing narrative? Check. Violence? Check. Intense action? Check. Clever characters? A rich fantasy world? Superior level design? Great gameplay? Check, check, check, and check. Dishonored has all of these elements, and then some. When ad...

  • Disney Universe Review

    When I started playing Disney Universe, I was apprehensive. This is a game for kids after all, and I am a grown man. Surely this can’t be good. I was right, and I was wrong. First, let me start off by saying this game is not meant for the hardcore audience. If you are the type to finish ...

  • Divekick Review: A unique game for casuals that won't make the EVO highlight reel

    Ah, the early 1990s, when fighting games used simple button combinations like B-F-LK. Get in your time machine as Divekick brings you back even further, where even simple combinations like Johnny Cage’s Shadow Kick are too complex. Two buttons are all you need, just like an NES controller, as ...

  • DJ Hero 2 Review

    In a world full of bland rhythm-based music games, last year's DJ Hero sought to change things up a bit by injecting a little funk and flare in to the mix. It succeeded, in large part, because it provided a fresh approach to the genre, an interesting peripheral and a music mix not seen in previous t...

  • DmC: Devil May Cry Review

    Rebooting a beloved franchise is no easy feat, as developer Ninja Theory found out when tasked with overhauling Capcom’s iconic Devil May Cry series. DmC: Devil May Cry is the Cambridge-based studio’s take on the 11+ million-selling stylish action franchise, at the centre of which has be...

  • DmC: Devil May Cry: Vergil's Downfall Review

    Ninja Theory’s first collaboration with Capcom, a take on the Devil May Cry universe, panned out very well for the studio and fans alike—critically, at least. Immediately after having completed development on DmC, Ninja Theory started working on a new downloadable chapter that would give...

  • Doki-Doki Universe Review

    With Doki-Doki Universe, ‘cute’ was one of the first words to pop into my head. The entire game, from the world and characters to the HUD and menus, looks as though it were handdrawn by a child. All of Doki-Doki Universe exudes this colorful charm. Thick, black outlines and flat colors c...

  • Dokuro Review

    Dokuro is a 2D puzzle platform game which oozes charm and has almost a nostalgic feel. A PS Vita exclusive developed by Game Arts and published by GungHo, Dokuro features a protagonist who has fallen madly in love with a princess, who in turn has been captured by an evil monster. Where have we seen ...

  • Don't Starve PS4 Review

    Klei Entertainment’s mantra of ‘’Survive! Collect! Attack!’’ goes a great length in showing the philosophy which underpins 2014’s first PlayStation 4 indie offering, ‘Don’t Starve’. Originally a breakaway success on PC last year, the title &ndash...

  • Dragon Age II Review

    For anyone who claims to know anything about Dragon Age II, it should be abundantly clear that BioWare has tried very hard to appeal to a broader audience with its latest endeavour in the fantasy RPG series. The sequel doesn't carry the same RPG weight as 2009’s Dragon Age: Origins, but the re...

  • 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...
