  • Singularity Review

    Bizarrely, Singularity has been one of the least hyped games of 2010. That wouldn’t be a concern to us if it was just another mediocre first person shooter, but it’s not. Raven Software’s first brand-new IP for ten years is actually one of the better first person shooters that we&r...

  • Siren: Blood Curse Review

    Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Japan’s internal studio, the release of Siren: Blood Curse signals the influx of several horror-theme outings on PS3 in 2008, preceding forthcoming entries such as Silent Hill: Homecoming and Electronic Arts’ forthcoming Dead Space. More than just...

  • Skate 2 Review

    When the first game in a new franchise turns out to be hugely popular amongst the masses and shifts millions of units in the process, it’s logical that the developer will try to emulate its success with more of the same. Unfortunately, many follow-ups have one overarching common factor: they&r...

  • Skate Review

    It’s very rare to experience a game that challenges our traditional perception of how things should be done for a genre, and reinvents the way we think altogether. EA Box Art's Skate fills a void in our hearts to when the glorious of something old, reinvents the magic of something new. Like al...

  • Skullcandy PLYR 1 Wireless Gaming Headset Review

    The first game I played with Skullcandy's PLYR 1 headset was The Last of Us. That's not a point in its favor, or a knock, for that matter. Rather, it's a funny coincidence. The Last of Us is the best PlayStation 3 game I've ever played. Skullcandy's PLYR 1 headset is the best gaming tech I've ever ...

  • Skullgirls Review

    In today’s world of 3D rendered, $60 retail fighting games, it always surprises me to see studios putting out games that a) are 2D and have hand drawn animation, and b) are download only. Seeing a game that comes along and does both is mind boggling, in the best way. Skullgirls has quite the o...

  • SkyDrift Review

    A couple of weeks ago we posted a preview for a plane racing game called SkyDrift, a downloadable title by Hungarian developer Digital Reality that takes the concept of Kart Racing games and literally gives them wings—and, a turboprop. What you’ll get for your $15 USD is a small se...

  • Sleeping Dogs Review

    It is not every day you can sympathize with a cold-hearted killer. But in Sleeping Dogs, the sprawling sandbox action game from United Front, it’s hard not to be on the side of detective Wei Shen. He beats gangsters to death with his bare hands, slams mob bosses’ heads into table saws, f...

  • Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Review (PS3, PS Vita)

    Sly Cooper's latest adventure is, undeniably, a labor of love. Sanzaru Games clearly understands what makes this franchise special: cartoon antics, tactful innuendos, and a colorful world ripe for stealthy platforming. Indeed, with regards to Sucker Punch's venerable PlayStation 2 trilogy, Sanzaru's...

  • Sniper Elite V2 Review

    High on the top floor of a dilapidated building, with chin pressed to the ground, not moving a muscle, the silent but deadly hero of Sniper Elite V2 surveys the heavily-guarded area below with his binoculars before he glares down the sights of his Springfield M1903 rifle. Executing a carefully plac...

  • Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Review

    Being a sniper is one of those jobs that requires a hearty regimen of discipline, since success is dependent on precision. There’s also the whole thing about holding the lives of random people in one’s hands--it makes sniping so empowering. With the aid of CryENGINE 3, City Interactive s...

  • SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Review

    Zipper Interactive spent a lot of time working on SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs, and it’s clear some of the devoted fans of the series will feel disenfranchised, as if the third-person shooter has evolved beyond recognition. SOCOM is one of the many flagship franchises for Sony’s home console...

  • SOCOM: US Navy SEALS Tactical Strike Review

    SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALS has been a mainstay of the squad-based shooter for over five years, with each subsequent iteration possessing noticeable improvements in both gameplay and game mechanics.

  • Sonic Generations Review

    Let's start with the facts. Sonic Generations is Sega's celebration-cum-video game for the titular Blue Blur’s 20th Anniversary.

  • Sonic the Hedgehog Review

    It’s Sonic’s 15th anniversary and he is trying to get things started by adding a new addition to the already great line-up that Sonic Team has produced. There’s no better way to do this than bringing the series to next-gen consoles or more specifically PlayStation 3. In this versio...

  • Sorcery review

    The most fun we’ve ever had with PlayStation Move was unwrapping it on launch day and giggling like schoolgirls at its resemblance to a vibrating sex aid, but the possibility that Sony would one day create a core game experience that takes real advantage of its true 1:1 motion-sensing capabili...

  • Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God Review

    Games and food go together like World of Warcraft and Hot Pockets, so is it any surprise games about cooking exist? Japan, in all its wacky wisdom, has taken it a step further, birthing an RPG around the glorious quest of making the ultimate curry recipe. In Sorcery Saga: The Curse of the Great Curr...

  • Sound Shapes Review (PS Vita)

    Music has always had the power to enhance your video game experience. A well-crafted soundtrack can lighten and darken the mood at will, raise your heartbeat as you enter a ferocious battle, and tug at your heart strings when a hero falls.
