  • PAIN Review

    Welcome to a crash course review of the entertainingly funny PlayStation Network release, PAIN. We’re not sure if any PSN title has been given as much content for download after release, as quickly as PAIN has. From wallpapers to extra characters, this game isn’t anything but updated. It...

  • Painkiller: Hell & Damnation Review: nothing can numb the pain of playing this game

    "If you are going through hell keep going," as Winston Churchill once said. However, I imagine that if he had the misfortune to have played Painkiller: Hell and Damnation he might well have said the opposite. Painkiller: Hell and Damnation is the new FPS from Nordic games and is describ...

  • Panic! Review

    The PlayStation Vita is known to be a handheld that can handle pretty much any console game thanks to its dual analog sticks and numerous buttons which make it close to a portable DualShock controller with a built-in screen. Also, thanks to its touchscreen it can handle games which rely on touch...

  • PaRappa the Rapper Review

    Returning from the feel-good 90s is everyone’s favorite paper-thin street poet, PaRappa the Rapper, in his first appearance on the PSP. A classic franchise and arguably one of the highest impact titles of the rhythm game genre, PaRappa’s entrance into the handheld world should herald a h...

  • Patapon Review

    Do you sometimes look at people playing Guitar Hero or Rock Band and just laugh at how ridiculous they look?

You see the guard standing around. You put on your mask,...

  • Persona 4 Golden Review

    Given the PlayStation brand's history as a rich platform for role-playing games and meaningful experiences, it's strange to think that, almost nine months post-release, the PlayStation Vita has yet to receive a traditional Japanese role-playing game. That all changes with Persona 4 Golden, and what ...

  • Persona 4: Arena Review - JRPG makes a solid transition to beat-'em-up territory

  • PES 2013 Review

    We’ve been looking forward to Pro Evolution Soccer this year more than ever before.

  • Phantasy Star Portable Review

    Sega’s Phantasy Star series started off life in the 1980’s by embracing many of the traditional gameplay features that we’ve now become accustomed to in role-playing games. In 2000, however, Japanese developer Sonic Team turned its back on the traditional turn-based combat system a...

  • PixelJunk Eden Review

    Druggies, take notice; I’ve discovered a quicker, cheaper, and legally acceptable way to get your fix of psychedelic imagery. It’s called PixelJunk Eden, and it’s really, really fun. Developed by Q-Games of PixelJunk Monsters fame, PixelJunk Eden is a revolutionary platformer fo...

  • PixelJunk Monster Encore Review

    PixelJunk Monsters Encore, developed by Q-Games, is the expansion pack for the tower defense-style game known as PixelJunk Monsters.

  • PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD review: unreasonably hard, undeniably fun

    When we reviewed PixelJunk Monsters' Encore expansion back in 2008, we noted that Q-Games' tower defense outing had received an “exponential leap in difficulty.” Within hours of starting PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD, I was feeling that white-knuckle frustration for myself. I've never b...

  • PixelJunk SideScroller Review

    For those of you who are fans of the PixelJunk series, in particular the Shooter titles, Q-Games’ switch to a more simplistic and restrictive format with PixelJunk SideScroller might come as a bit of a surprise.

No, instead Planets Under Attack has been warped into yo...

  • Plants vs. Zombies Review (PS Vita)

    Plants vs. Zombies was admittedly an initially tough sell for me. I came to the Vita seeking the kinds of deep, immersive games that cell phones and iDevices haven’t (with very few exceptions) delivered yet. I wanted the kind of story, art, gameplay, and all the bang a cutting edge console has...

  • PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Review

    The moment I ripped open the Christmas wrapping on a Sony PlayStation in 1999 was the moment when I like to imagine that I joined the PlayStation family.

  • PlayStation Move Review

    For as long as there’s been a PlayStation 3, Sony has consistently touted that all of its consoles are built and marketed with a 10-year life span.
