Little Battlers Experience Review

Unless you have young kids, there is a really good chance you have never heard of Little Battlers Experience, or LBX for short. I am not in that camp; my five year old son watches LBX religiously and was very excited for the release of this 3DS title. When the review code finally came through, however, I was surprised, as I thought this was a Holiday 2015 title.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Review

There is something wonderful about getting old games remastered for new systems, but also something inherently problematic. Often these titles, from the present looking to the past, are viewed as iconic, industry changing experiences. With a re-release, the question almost always becomes, "Will it live up to the original?" Gears of War: Ultimate Edition walks the fine line between being an outstanding shooter, but with many faults. Updated graphics and an overhauled multiplayer system cannot make up for the flaws of most early Xbox 360 titles.

Legend of Kay Anniversary Review

Legend of Kay originally came out in 2005, and was reviewed fairly well considering it was a platformer title exclusive to the platform heavy Playstation 2. I never owned a PS2 until well after the launch of the PS3, but even then, I had never played Legend of Kay.

Batman Arkham Knight Review

After playing through the entire main story line and about 8 hours of extras, it is safe to say that Batman Arkham Knight could possibly be the best Batman game, ever. I’m not comparing this to Arkham Asylum and Arkham City; no, I’m comparing it to all Batman games. This title builds on the positives in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, and goes above and beyond to create one of the best open world games I have ever played. This title will receive serious Game of the Year consideration come December, at least here on Games Reviews.

LEGO Jurassic World Review

LEGO Jurassic World combines everything I liked about LEGO video games and largely removes the only thing I really hated: the combat. With the focus on combat gone, Travelers Tales has given more time to environmental destruction, helpful hints for those young LEGO fans, and more puzzles to complete. Oh yes, and dinosaurs.

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition Xbox One Review

Over the last two weeks my experiences with Payday 2: Crimewave Edition has been loaded with wait times, frustration and a little bit of fun. There were about twenty heists, maybe more that I was never able to connect to due to server issues on Crime Net. I was still able to complete heists but not as many as I would have liked. This version of Payday 2 comes complete with the original version and all the available DLC which was great to have all in one package. There is also confirmation on the official Twitter account of Payday 2 that there will be a patch ...

The Evil Within: The Executioner Review

Controlling (now in first-person, for the first time in the series so far) an unnamed man who appears to be (at least in physical appearance) one of the main antagonists from The Evil Within – The Keeper. Nicknamed ‘safe head’ by fans and developers, the lumbering butcher’s face is entirely hidden by a safe-like helmet filled to the brim with pulsing flesh and blood. Carrying a huge meat tenderizer hammer covered in spikes and a bag filled with the brains of his victims, The Keeper is a force to be reckoned with. In this third DLC installment, the player now ...

BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition Xbox One Review

BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition brings a mobile game to our living rooms with its latest release on Xbox One. If you have ever played the infamous Flappy Bird then you will already be familiar with the basis of BADLAND. It’s a side scrolling physics based game with obstacles in your way. Pressing the A button will bring your clone upwards and letting go will allow gravity to do its thing and bring your clone down to the bottom. In Flappy Bird, it’s just you, one bird trying to avoid your surroundings. BADLAND is a lot more forgiving, allowing your clone to ...
