  • Master Reboot Review - a haunting first-person horror adventure

    Master Reboot has a frankly brilliant premise. In the future, souls can be uploaded to a vast network called the SoulCloud, allowing close friends and family to experience the memories and pivotal events in a given person's life. Casting players as an enigmatic girl, struggling to piece together ...

  • Max Payne 3 Review

    Max Payne is a complete mess. Moving to New Jersey was supposed to be a new start away from the DEA and NYPD, a place where he could finally try to put the brutal murders of his wife and daughter to the back of his mind, and retire from the violence that had so far consumed his life. With his menta...

  • Medal of Honor Review

    In a genre inhabited by the biggest guns in all of modern gaming, it seems there is little room for a redundant and uninspired first-person shooter. There’s just too little breathing room with franchises like Call of Duty, Crisis and Halo wreaking havoc on the competition. But what happens whe...

  • Medal of Honor: Warfighter Review

    The modern Medal of Honor games are often compared to the Call of Duty series. We find that the newest MOH game is best compared to most reality television stars: easy on the eyes with a complete lack of substance. Medal of Honor: Warfighter has beautiful lighting, bombastic sound, gorgeous cutscene...

  • MediEvil Resurrection Review

    Does a game ever make a lasting impression on you that you still look forward to a similar title ten years down the road? Luckily, that's exactly how we felt about MediEvil Resurrection. MediEvil is a series which started up on the original PlayStation console. Over 10 years ago, a sword wieldin...

  • Mega Man 9 Review

        In recent years, Capcom has been doing a lot of fan service, and Mega Man 9 is no different. The Blue Bomber returns to his roots in this 8-bit sequel to the original Mega Man series. With a brand new 8-bit engine, Capcom promised a return to the golden age of the original series,...

  • Men's Room Mayhem Review - restroom etiquette has never been this much fun

  • Mercenary Kings PS4 review

    Starting off life as a Kickstarter title from developer Tribute Games, known for its downloadable beat 'em up Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Mercenary Kings brings a fun side-scrolling shoot 'em up with plenty of missions and great co-op action to the PlayStation 4. The storyline doesn't take itself...

  • Metal Gear Online Review

    War has changed. It's not about nations, or ideologies. It's not even about profit, resources, or ethnicity. It's an endless series of proxy battles fought by mercenaries and machines. War, and its vast consumption of human life, has become a rational, well-oiled business transaction. War has change...

  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review - 'Swordplay has never been this much fun'

    A Metal Gear game launches and the PlayStation masses jump on it like the last human alive during a zombie apocalypse. Quality story-telling, high production values and absorbing gameplay have helped elevate the franchise to cult status, so the fact that it’s headed in a brand new direction wi...

  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Review

    [Editor’s note – PSU will be covering Metal Gear Online in a separate review in the near future] As the latest installment in Konami’s critically acclaimed stealth franchise, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots arrives on the scene accompanied by a substantial weight. By th...

  • Metal Gear Solid HD Collection PS Vita Review

    Hideo Kojima has seen to it that his Metal Gear Solid games are playable by nearly every possible consumer type. That being said, the only gamer left was the mobile gamer. Though it was remade and released for the Nintendo 3DS, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, as well as Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of ...

  • Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Review

    Icons are aplenty in the gaming industry, and among Master Chief, Lara Croft, and Mario is the prodigious Solid Snake, who found his way to fame on the shoulders of acclaimed developer Hideo Kojima. Tactical espionage is not a genre that has much room for error, and the Metal Gear series most certai...

  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes PS4 Review

    You’ve got to applaud Hideo Kojima. No matter how many times the legendary developer expresses his desire to step away from Metal Gear Solid, he finds himself inexorably drawn back to the stealth-action opus one way or another. His latest venture, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, finds the c...

  • Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Review

    The past couple of weeks have been so busy, and not just because of E3. Sure, we’ve been hearing about the big guns like Killzone 3, the new Twisted Metal, and Portal 2, but that’s not exactly why we’ve been so busy. Rather, it might have something to do with Hideo Kojima’s m...

  • Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus Review

    As most of you know, here at PSU.com we like to structure our reviews so the story element of the game is brought to you quickly from the get go. After all, it’s such an integral part of the game, correct? Yeah, we thought so too, until we put this UMD into the PSP. What was Kojima Productions...

  • Metro: Last Light Review - "one hell of a ride"

    Metro: Last Light is the follow-up to the first entry in the franchise, Metro 2033 by 4A Games, which dumps you in the shoes Artyom; a ranger who seems to end up in all sorts of awful predicaments. That isn't to say there isn't something for old and new fans alike in this entry, as Last Light goes p...

  • Mindjack Review

    Mindjack suffers from a common gaming disease. It has an interesting, slightly unique premise, yet its gameplay, presentation, and level design keep it from being anything other than ordinary. It’s a third-person shooter that has all the common gameplay elements that its genre would imply....

  • Mini Chat-Board for PS3 Review

    I’ve got a tip for you. Never attempt to open rigid, plastic clamshell packaging with a knife. You’ll be risking yourself serious injury. I nearly stabbed myself in the leg trying to butcher my way through to the Mini-Chat board. After my first few jabs with the knife the fear of injury ...

  • 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...

  • Mirror's Edge Review

    By using the increasingly popular free-running activity of Parkour as its theme and mixing it with a story of murder and intrigue, EA’s DICE Studio certainly deserves credit for thinking outside of the conventional box. Despite some thrills along the way though it’s an experiment that ul...

  • MLB 08: The Show PSP Review

    After an above average showing with MLB 07: The Show last year, SCE San Diego upped their game for the release of MLB 08: The Show on the PlayStation Portable. This time around they decided to take the positive from both the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game and throw them into on...

  • MLB 09: The Show Review

    It’s that time of year again when the snow trickles away, the air warms up, and parents bring their kids to Spring Training to get a first glimpse at the superstars of tomorrow. Baseball season is right around the corner, and with it comes the annual release of what has quickly become the gami...

  • MLB 11: The Show Review

    Baseball may be one of the most important sports in American history, but that doesn’t mean everyone loves it. Chances are if you have three friends, at least one will admit to loving the game and another will absolutely despise it. In the world of baseball videogames, the love and hate distin...

  • MLB 12 The Show Review

    Baseball is a game of patience. Innings can drag on for what feels like hours, and unless you are in the stadium with a dog in one hand and a tall one in the other the thrill of the game is lost in long moments of batter verse pitcher battles. Yet, it’s America’s game, the traditional pa...
