LittleBigPlanet Vita Review

LittleBigPlanet Vita is a completely zero-compromise LittleBigPlanet game. It refuses to sacrifice any of what makes LBP so great with its transformation to the Vita, and feels completely natural on the system. While LBPV doesn’t revolutionize the core formula of LBP, it does have the best story mode in both level design and hilarious characters,…

Paranormal Review

Paranormal is the type of game that will leave you wishing that this never happens to you. You are Matel Clark, an artist who has decided to record the recent events transpiring in his house. The game places you in the setting of a house in San Francisco, California that has been around since 1910…

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…

Guild Wars 2 Review

The superlative “Most Revolutionary MMO of 2012” is most often used when describing Guild Wars 2. Seeing as I was a fan of Guild Wars 1 and played it quite a bit, I knew that I had to pick up this game the minute it was announced. I honestly have a hard time describing it…

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”…

Legend of Grimrock Review

My game library is full of first-person shooters, action RPGs and strategy games, but rarely have I come across a game that is anything like Legend of Grimrock. It certainly was refreshing to play something out of today’s normal array of games. Almost Human, the developers of Legend of Grimrock, have created a PC game…

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…

Ninja Gaiden 3 Review

The Ninja Gaiden series is one with quite a reputation about it. It is known for being very gory, its futuristic ninjas, and, of course, for being incredibly difficult. Oh and also the ninjas?  So when Ninja Gaiden 3 was available, I had to check it out. The rough explanation of the story is that…

Dungeon Defenders Review

Dungeon Defenders; where does one even begin when trying to describe this game? Take one part tower defense game, one part RPG and one part action game, throw them in a blender and you will get… Well, you will get a mess, but you get my point, I’m sure. Dungeon Defenders combines elements from these…

Hydrophobia Prophecy Review

Hydrophobia Prophecy is what developer Dark Energy Digital likes to call a “Comprehensive Reinvention” of their initial release of the game “Hydrophobia” (or Hydrophobia Pure after the patch that was released to correct some issues) on the Xbox 360 on September 29th, 2010. Although it was met with some mixed reactions from critics, it still…

Rocketbirds Hardboiled Chicken Review

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken puts you in control of a war child (war chick) that has grown up into a ruthless killing machine. I’ll avoid giving out to much of the story, but at some point an event happens and our protagonist; Hardboiled comes to his senses and begins to take the fight to the tyranny…
