Outland Review

The core ideas behind Outland feel fresh and entertaining at first, but predictable level design and frustrating boss encounters hurt the experience. For a platformer to stand out in this day and age, the game has to do something quite inventive either from a visual or gameplay standpoint, preferably both.…

Halo 4 Review

Halo 4 is a great addition to the franchise and a terrific first-person shooter that stands well on its own. After the end of Halo 3, developer Bungie was done with the series, but Microsoft was left with one pressing question: where do we go from here? After all, Bungie…

Gears of War: Judgment Review

While this prequel delivers an entertaining and action-packed campaign, as well as some traditional and new multiplayer modes, the overall package feels woefully unimpressive. Back when the first Gears of War debuted in 2005, the third-person shooter felt refreshingly unique even if some of its parts were seen before (the…

Resident Evil: Revelations HD Review

Resident Evil: Revelations has what previous games in the main series lacked: direction and confidence.

SSX Review

If you missed the “Snowboarding, Surfer and Motocross” mantra from the classic SSX, this reboot will suffice, but some of the new elements obscure the vision established by its predecessors. SSX, the wacky, fast-paced snowboarding franchise from the PlayStation 2 era is back in the form of a gritty reboot…

Saints Row IV Review

Saints Row IV Wallpaper

Saints Row IV is such a fresh open-world game that I don’t think I can go back to the traditional formula established by its predecessors. Over the years, the Saints Row franchise has gotten a reputation of being a wacky Grand Theft Auto clone and while there’s an element of…
