  • Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days Review

    Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is an indie flick. It’s a cult film; a gore fest. It’s a reality show from a parallel universe where, instead of a low-budget camera crew following cops through urban jungles, it follows a pair of anti-heroes on a meaningless quest for greed and revenge. Shot...

  • Killzone 2 Review

    ‘Epic’ is a word that is loosely banded around the videogame industry. In practically every press release pimping the latest game that comes fluttering into our inbox, we find that very noun used nonchalantly by publishers trying to convince us that its game will be the next big thing. T...

  • Killzone 3 Review

    PlayStation 3 owners rejoice. The long-awaited sequel to Killzone 2 is coming soon, and first-person shooter fans are in for quite a treat. Killzone 2 is one of the PS3’s most celebrated titles to date, with fans and critics heaping praise on its stunning visuals, compelling single-player camp...

  • Killzone HD Review

    Back in 2004, Sony released the first-person shooter called Killzone on the PS2. Given how Sony was touting the game, some areas of the gaming press dubbed it 'The Halo Killer'. This put the game under massive scrutiny and, inevitably, the game didn't live up to the extreme billing. Now the game has...

  • Killzone: Mercenary Review: The definitive PS Vita shooter

    Written by - Mike Harradence The arrival of Guerrilla Cambridge’s Killzone: Mercenary couldn’t have come at a better time for PlayStation Vita. The struggling Sony handheld has been chomping at the bit for that triple-A, must-have release for a good while now, and what better way to end...

  • Killzone: Shadow Fall Review: Ambitious steps in right and wrong directions

    Killzone: Shadow Fall takes steps to reinvent the franchise in a next-gen transition to wide-open areas, tactical shooting, and a slower pace--all told, a thinking man's game. If you look too closely, it's easy to see Killzone: Shadow Fall as a sum of gameplay, art, and design choices that have made...

  • King Oddball PS4 review

    While the physics puzzler has come into a renaissance of sorts thanks to a bunch of grumpy avians, the subsequent deluge of wannabe games has proven to be less than inspiring for the most part. Happily, King Oddball by developer 10 Tons is one such effort that goes against the grain with well struc...

  • Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX Review: A gorgeous love letter to Kingdom Hearts fans

    I am the biggest Kingdom Hearts fan I know. As a kid, I wrote the original game's Ansem Reports on pieces of paper so I could study them on long car rides. I made a screenshot collage of Kingdom Hearts II months before its release and hung it in my room. I own two pieces of Kingdom Hearts jewelry an...

  • Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Review

    We’ve got the creative genius of director Tetsuya Nomura to thank for bringing the surreal mix of characters from the Final Fantasy universe together with legends from the world of Disney. It’s a match that really shouldn’t have worked, especially in the notoriously hardcore RPG ge...

  • Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Review

    Breaking into the tightly competitive role-playing game market is tough business. With franchises like Fallout and The Elder Scrolls offering western RPG fans a new offering every couple of years, a new IP has a lot to prove to attract attention. It’s even harder when battling against the like...

  • Knack Review: A pretender to the platforming throne

    Knack desperately wants to be like the Crash Bandicoots and Spyros of old, but it falls short in more than a few key areas. Controls and movement are solid (if a bit imprecise), and there's a good amount of aesthetic value in the game's colorful (if generic) cartoon style, but Knack overstays its we...

  • Knights Contract Review

    Knights Contract fails. If you want to know why, then keep reading. While I could list the game’s vast array of problems in bullet point fashion, I’d rather not give you the impression that the game deserves a mini-dissertation. The fact is, people make bad games, and it’s not alwa...

  • Kung Fu Rider Review

    Kung Fu Rider represents the less than appealing side of motion controls. It’s everything we feared to see on Move: a boring game, and even if it used Move properly, has no reason to actually require motion controls. Sure, it is original and quirky, but when the gameplay is so miserable we can...

  • Kung-Fu Live Review

    More than three years after it first launched, the PlayStation Eye has finally found a regular place on top of millions of T.V. sets worldwide thanks to the launch of PlayStation Move. And - if the free-motion technology that Virtual Air Guitar has created for its new PlayStation Network brawler, Ku...
