Tales from the Borderlands Review

Tales from the Borderlands is a terrific title that will satisfy both fans of Telltale-style games and Borderlands. When developer Telltale Games announced that they were working on a graphic adventure based on Borderlands, I was skeptical at first. At the time, I couldn’t understand how Borderlands (which is all …

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a violent, ridiculously over-the-top and fast-paced hack and slash action game that delivers everything it intends to with pizzazz and style. Spin-offs are usually about exploring side-characters and doing something completely bonkers with them. That’s definitely the case with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, an action …

Borderlands Review

Regardless of how much time you decide to spend on Pandora, that’s time well spent. Time and time again, we’ve seen games that try to combine dissimilar genres, but that can go one of two ways: the result can be a terrific game (Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords) or …

Green Day: Rock Band Review

Although Green Day: Rock Band won’t make you an instant fan of the Oakland-based punk trio, those who already enjoy their music will have a blast with this rhythm game. The Beatles are a hard act to follow, but that didn’t prevent developer Harmonix from taking a controversial decision. After …

Dark Souls Review

From Software’s Dark Souls is a modern masterpiece that breathes new life into the action RPG genre. The coast seems clear, there’s not an enemy in sight and deep down, I know I can pull this off. But as I cross the bridge that gets me closer to the nearby …

Rock Band Blitz Review

If you wanted more reasons to hate your Facebook friends, Rock Band Blitz will give you plenty, as well as a social experience that’s fun to play if you’ve been buying DLC for years. Rock Band Blitz is an odd duck. Despite following the aesthetic of the incredibly popular Rock …

Crysis Review

Despite some omissions and a few technical issues, the Xbox 360 version of Crysis is a terrific way of experiencing this game if you don’t have access to a PC. Once every a generation, a title comes along that sets a new standard when it comes to visual prowess. That’s …

Spec Ops: The Line Review

Spec Ops: The Line is a thought-provoking and memorable title that’s worth playing, if only to see its narrative. Oftentimes, we see the release of a new shooter that tries to emulate Call of Duty or Battlefield. These are games set in a real conflict that take place somewhere around …

BioShock Infinite Review

BioShock Infinite represents an achievement for the medium and no one should miss that. Although the original BioShock took us underground to explore the failed dystopia known as Rapture, BioShock Infinite does the opposite and encourages us to go to Columbia, a city in the sky. Columbia seems colorful and …

Tomb Raider Review

Tomb Raider is an exhilarating orchestra of bombastic setpieces, flashy explosions and gruesome head-shots and despite its clichés and contrived story, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy every single moment of this game. The original Tomb Raider came out almost two decades ago (in 1996, to be …

JUJU Review

JUJU doesn’t pose much of a challenge, but it’ll put a smile on your face nonetheless. Sometimes you need a break from all the gritty first-person shooters, severe role-playing games, brutal horror games and other adult-oriented games and that’s why games like JUJU are a pleasant surprise. JUJU is a …

Ms. Splosion Man Review

Unlike Super Meat Boy, Ms. Splosion Man doesn’t deserve to be among the best platformers of the past few years. What would a platformer look like if the main protagonist’s only means of interacting with the environments involved exploding over and over? That was the creative premise behind Splosion Man …

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Review

Not only is Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions the dual-stick shooter we know and love, but the game incorporates enough features to keep you entertained for a long time. The Geometry Wars series represented a revolution for arcade-style games released in a modern era. Originally released as part of a bonus …
