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” style bullet time mode in action games or is it too little too late for Max? Rockstar is known for many great features in their...

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 good chance of reinvigorating the Sonic franchise. The promise of playing as classic Sonic and new age Sonic appealed to me. Although it wasn’t on...

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 poorly executed file sharing service. Despite the steep curve that RedLynx faced to top the near perfection it had achieved it did that and more...

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 as a green Sour Patch Kid who’s only goal in life is to be eaten. Quickly at the beginning of the game, the narrator, who...

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 popular genres in an attempt to bring us something that stands above most games in these genres. Dungeon Defenders had its humble beginnings on the...

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 managed to gain a fan following. We first caught wind of this “reinvention” of Hydrophobia back in April of this year. Dark Energy Digital stated...

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 eyes of one of the four protagonists in their latest title for the PlayStation 3 and PC. (I’m not sure if they are considered protagonists...

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 market anymore. Even though Square-Enix has produced a degree of “questionable” quality games (Final Fantasy XIV, Dungeon Siege III, Front Mission Evolved, etc.), the company...

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 just that, massive. It starts, as with Oblivion, with your character as a prisoner. You are told briefly about a civil war happening in Skyrim...

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 a first of its kind for Dragonball Z. The regular story mode follows the story of Dragonball Z and Dragonball GT from Raditz to Omega...

When you take a first glance at the Renegade Ops trailer, you may get the sense that there isn’t much to this over the top shooter. It’s only after you sit down and try this download only game that you become addictive to the destruction factor. The game’s story is told through comic book style movie scenes. A mad dictator, Inferno, mysteriously shows up and announces his army will destroy countless cities unless all nations hand control over to him....

Burnout Crash Review
Playstation 3

The Burnout series has always been a unique series, regardless of what title came out. It has shown many players new and unique way to take on a race, cause mass destruction, and explore a free roaming city. So how does the DLC game, known as Burnout Crash, fit in? The first thing you need to know about this latest Burnout installment is there is no racing involved. It’s a shame I know. The over head view doesn’t quite work...

Deus Ex is a series that I had always heard good things about, but never actually played. That being said, the latest installment, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, I had hoped would live up to the expectations that I had for it. Although, due to my lack of experience with the previous titles, I can only judge this game as this game alone and not as a continuation. The game starts off as you, Adam Jensen, walking with an apparent ex-girlfriend...
