Pokémon Sun and Moon Themed Decks

The Guardians Rising expansion for Pokémon Son and Moon has been a big hit at retail already, with many of the booster packs, decks, and Elite Trainer boxes becoming almost impossible to find. We've already unboxed and reviewed a number of packs earlier, so I hope you will check them out! While I will copy and paste a few of the Guardians Rising details here again, the majority of this review will be looking at the themed decks and how they play in a game!

LEGO Brick Headz – The Hulk

About a week ago, we reviewed our first ever LEGO Brick Headz set here on GamesReviews.com and gave it a very favourable review. Not only does the figure look good on display, but the box artwork also adds to the aesthetic of having these sets on my desk at work. I get many compliments about them, and find myself referring people more and more often to the nearest toy store to grab their own. Like the Iron Man set, Hulk also comes with many hard-to-find pieces, ...

Injustice 2 Review

Injustice 2 isn't really your typical fighting game, and although it has all the makings of a solid fighting game - which it is - it is still not 'typical.' What is typical? Typical isn't a bad thing, but it's an industry constant that does get dated pretty quickly. This this case, typical is that multiplayer reigns supreme, single player is more of an introductory element, and if you cannot compete online, there is not point to even purchasing the game. That's ...

Portal Knights Impressions – Xbox One

Portal Knights is a wonderful cross between Minecraft crafting and a somewhat deep RPG game. With a number of classes to choose from, tons of ways to upgrade your characters stats and abilities, and the chance to create wonderful buildings and worlds, Portal Knights is more than just a Minecraft clone: it is a more in depth, and personally a much more fun experience – yes, I said it! Don’t get me wrong, Minecraft is a ton of fun, but…

LEGO Dimensions – The Goonies Level Pack

If you haven’t seen the Goonies movie you are doing an incredible disservice to yourself. Stop what you are doing, stop reading this review, and go watch it. Then come back. Through various levels, the developers behind LEGO Dimensions have done an excellent job recreating the Goonies movie in LEGO form, allowing you to play as various Goonies and the main man Sloth, as you finish the adventure, collect red bricks, and explore every inch of the world.

LEGO Dimensions – LEGO City Fun Pack Review

LEGO City Undercover was an excellent release way back on the Wii U, and got its deserved rerelease on all platforms early this year. Not to lose out on that hype, Travelers Tales has officially launched the LEGO City Fun Pack for LEGO Dimensions, bringing Chase McCain and a cast of other characters over to the LEGO Dimensions universe. While this obviously isn't a 1-for-1 remake of the full fledged LEGO City Undercover title, it is a wonderful addition to the ...

Review of Iron Man Brick Headz Set from LEGO

It is not often I get a LEGO set in the mail and go, "I didn't know this existed!" but that was the case this week when I unboxed a wonderful review box sent over by The Lego Group. Aside from a few Star Wars sets and LEGO Creator sets, The LEGO Group's PR company also sent along two Marvel Brick Headz sets, Iron Man and Hulk. These a pretty solid sets with almost 100 pieces each. I put together the Iron Man figure last night and was incredibly impressed!

Flatout 4 Total Insanity Review

To say that a number of the previous Flatout titles were a disappointment would be an understatement, so heading into Flatout 4, I wasn't particularly enthusiastic about what I was about to play. When compared to other Flatout games in the franchise, the fourth iteration does a great job to cleaning up some of the problems present, but also introduces a few new ones. Flatout 4 is an enjoyable experience, but won't be for everyone.

The Surge Review

Many companies are seeing the appeal of the "Dark Souls Formula" and are attempting to create difficult games in the same vein. While most of these games fall flat, The Surge gets pretty close, and yet still so far. However, unlike other games that attempt to make a stab at this type of game play, The Surge does stand on its own quite well, making it a worthwhile game for fans of the Dark Souls series.
