Retro City Rampage Review

The word “retro” is thrown around a lot in this generation. By definition, Retro is typically an aged or outdated style, fashion, mode, etc. Anything from more than 15-20 years is typically considered “retro”. Sometimes ideas challenge that definition and present the question: Can a modern game with modern ideas and innovation be classified as…

Assassin’s Creed 3 Review

After five Assassin’s Creed games over the past five years, it’s surprising how little has changed in retrospect. The original AC was very methodical and repetitive, but it introduced a new kind third-person movement system and impressive tech. AC2 revamped the formula and addressed most of its glaring issues, making it one of the best…

Happy Wars Review

Happy Wars is a crazy castle storming multiplayer game, in which 15 players on each side make it their goal to break into their enemy’s castle. It was quite an experience to play on the Xbox 360, but the big question is: was it a good experience, or a terrible one? Players get their choice…

The Walking Dead Episode 4 Review

It’s been a very long, painful journey for Lee (AKA myself), Clementine, and Kenny thus far. Kenny is still in an angry shock over the abrupt loss of his family just two days prior. Our group has a few new members–Omid and Christa–who seem to be fitting in well, even if Christa can be pretty…

Tokyo Jungle Review

Tokyo Jungle sets out to do a very specific thing, and does it very well. It’s very much a Japanese game, and doesn’t care who knows it. Unlike some recent Japanese games that try to cater to every Western audience in its design, Tokyo Jungle embraces its insane premise and capitalizes on it with great…

Worms Revolution Review

Worms Revolution is the type of game that’ll leave you intrigued and wanting more. It sets you in an environment that you control and are capable of destroying to use to your advantage. In the beginning you go through the tutorial giving you the basic run down of the game and how it works; showing…

Nights Into Dreams HD Review

Many say that the most iconic dreams are those which incorporate one of mankind’s oldest and deepest desires…the gift of flight. Nights into Dreams paints a colorful landscape for this desire and then gives you complete, unfiltered control over it. A classic game that largely helped to define a console has found its way to…

Castle Crashers Review

Castle Crashers is a game that has been out for a few years already on the 360 and the PS3, but now it’s available on Steam! Crashers was originally an amazing experience to enjoy on consoles, but now PC gamers can spend countless hours playing through CC over and over again with every character. Castle…

Dust: An Elysian Tale Review

Dust: An Elysian Tale is the last game in 2012’s Summer of Arcade, and it finishes the series with a bang. Every year there is a game that stands out from the rest and Dust is that game this year. Despite being a game designed by a solo person, it’s wonderful art design and crisp…

Dogfight 1942 Review

In Dogfight 1942 players climb into the cockpit and into the shoes of one of four pilots taking on Axis powers during four different air campaigns. They span such historical campaigns as the Battle of Britain, the war in Africa, the Eastern Front and the Pacific island-hopping campaign. The game features more than 20 iconic…

Borderlands 2 Review

In late 2009, Borderlands was released to the fans gripping them with exciting co-op and as many guns as you can imagine. While not a perfect game by any means, Borderlands built up a good following and had many successful DLC packs, allowing for a sequel to be released. Fast forward to now, Gearbox is…

Double Dragon Neon Review

The Double Dragon franchise has certainly seen its share of ups and downs. From the original game in 1987 to the iPhone release in 2011, Double Dragon has stretched itself over many decades, and several platforms. Unfortunately for many fans of the series (and to those unlucky enough to give this game a try), Double…

Rock Band Blitz Review

After the downfall of rhythm games in 2010, thousands of people were left with unused plastic instruments taking up space in their homes. There was never anything legitimately wrong with rhythm games, but oversaturation combined with the absence of innovation drove them into the ground. In the last few years Harmonix has rebounded off of…

Batman: Arkham City Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC Review

Weeks after the events of Arkham City’s main story, Harley Quinn returns, and she’s worse than ever. Harley has taken over the Joker’s old steel mill hideout, and when Batman goes to investigate, things get worse before they get better. Cue Robin, the Boy Wonder, who goes in to investigate. Sadly, while this might sound…

Rock of Ages Review

If you are anything like me, you sometimes wish you could do something to break away from mundane workdays and do something erratic like rolling a giant boulder over your boss. Don’t give me that look. I know you’ve had that “boulder rolling over” fantasy before-don’t deny it!  While there are laws against doing so…

Max Payne 3 Review

It’s been years since Rockstar declared Max Payne’s return to next generation consoles. It almost hard to believe the dark hero has come out of hiding, but Max has made a comeback and he is packing. This new title leaves one with the question, can Max Payne 3 revitalize a hero that mastered “The Matrix”…

Sonic Generations Review

It’s been a long time since I have looked forward to playing a Sonic game. To be fair, I was never fond of any of his 3D outings with the original trilogy the stand out games. When I first seen Sonic Generations image and video coming from E3 I thought it at least had a…

Prototype 2 Review

Prototype, Radical Entertainment’s open-world game was pitted against InFAMOUS when it was originally released.  Both are very similar games.  Despite the fact that InFAMOUS was generally declared the better of two games, Radical was given another chance and the result of this is Prototype 2. The protagonist of the original game, Alex Mercer is no…

Trials Evolution Review

Trials HD, the arcade smash hit from 2009’s summer of arcade, took Xbox Live by storm two years ago, with its difficult tracks and competitive leader boards enthralling people and leaving them begging for more. There were only a few faults in the original game, which included a very tough learning curve and a very…

World Gone Sour Review

Upon first glance, World Gone Sour appears to be a cheap licensed game all about shoving Sour Patch Kids down your throat. For the Sour Patch Kids in this game, that is just what they want you to do. World Gone Sour, developed by Playbrains, is on the surface a simple platformer where you play…
