Final Fantasy XIII Review

Final Fantasy XIII delivers a poignant story with likeable characters and an engaging combat system. It’s a shame that it takes so long to see it. Whenever a new Final Fantasy hits store shelves, the release feels like an event. That’s the case with other franchises, but for the longest…

Vanquish Review

The ridiculous story and blistering fast gameplay make Vanquish an extraordinary single-player shooter that’s a joy to play and an experience you won’t forget any time soon. Vanquish, from notorious Japanese developer Platinum Games, is so confident in itself that there was simply no way that this third-person cover shooter…

Dark Souls II Review

Like the game that preceded it, Dark Souls II offers an indelible experience that’s will remain in my memory for years to come. How far are you willing to go to become human again? Would you die over and over again until you crush the obstacles that block your path…

Far Cry 3 Review

Far Cry 3 is a first-person shooter that offers a compelling story and plenty of opportunities to explore a tropical open-world with lots of activities that will keep you entertained for hours on end. Back when the original Far Cry came out in early 2004, I was intrigued by its…

Rayman Origins Review

Rayman Origins is a gorgeous 2D platformer that always offers a challenge and represents a reinvention for the series. Forget everything you know about Rayman. The series has been around for a while, but it hasn’t stayed relevant like other 3D platformers (such as Super Mario Bros, Banjo-Kazooie or Ratchet…

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review

Blood Dragon is a hilarious, loud and mindlessly fun expansion that hits all the right notes. An 80s aesthetic, references to 8-bit games and action movies, neon-soaked environments and an action hero who never takes himself too seriously. If I told you that those are the main qualities of a…

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Review

A decidedly slow pace and a strong focus on puzzles might not have been the best design choices, making Revelations 2 an entertaining but unremarkable Resident Evil game. Resident Evil: Revelations didn’t reinvent the franchise in any meaningful way, but it did reinvigorate it. Revelations 2 uses the same episodic…
