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.

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…

Payday The Heist Review

Do you remember when you were child and you played cops and robbers with your friends? If you were like me you were always the robber. (That’s right, I’m an antagonist, holding kids hostage and all. Don’t judge me) Overkill Software allows gamers to recapture that “robbers” experience from a first person perspective through the…

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Review

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning needs to be up there with a lot of competing RPG games available on multiple consoles. Will the collaborate minds of R.A. Salvatore and Todd McFarlane be enough for the RPG to stand on its own two feet? Well, I have been playing this new game and I am ready to…

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Review

There are many RPGs that try to make a name for themselves in the world of gaming. Not many of them succeed. With Bioware, Blizzard, and Bethesda dominating an RPG realm that was owned by Japanese games, 20 years ago, it makes one wonder if the Final Fantasy series has a say in the American…

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review

Oh Bethesda, you silly developers. I did have a life before you brought out Skyrim. I had things to go to and finals to study for… But NO, you made this giant game for us to play. Even so, it is an epic journey worthy of all the hype about it. The massive story is…

FIFA 2012 Review

Each year EA Sports releases the next installment of their FIFA franchise and millions of gamers are there eagerly waiting to pick it up. For so long the only noticeable change to the game was the roster update which would see Electronic Arts football game speedily lose out to Pro Evolution Soccer from Konami. But…

Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi Review

This is one of those games, along with any Dragonball Z game, that has prejudice against it. Many of its predecessors were button-mashing, overpowered disasters that appealed only to die-hard fans. While I, myself, am indeed a fan of the series, I believe that Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi is revamped and innovative game that is…

Rage Review

It’s been a while since id Software announce the Rage title two years ago and even longer since the developers brought out a fun title. Their long hiatus is over and it is time so see if Rage stands up there with the famous Doom and Quake series. As a sadly asteroid head toward Earth,…
