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…

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…

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…

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…
