Far Cry 4 Review

Kyrat isn't a real place, but the beauty that Ubisoft brought to this pretend-although-based-on-real environment makes me want to head to the Himalayan Mountains sometime in my life. I'll pass on the conflict however. Ubisoft has released another mega hit with Far Cry 4, giving Xbox and Playstation owners the best open world I've ever had the privilege of exploring. While the story is nothing to write home about, everything surrounding the story makes popping this disc in completely worth it.

Super Smash Bros Review

Super Smash Bros on 3DS was packed full of content, ranging from unlockable characters and stages to never-before-seen game pay modes that make playing Smash Bros alone more enjoyable. Nintendo held nothing back when releasing the Wii U version of the game, and the result is one of the best Wii U games available to date.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

The massive and immersive world of J.R.R. Tolkiens Middle-earth series has spawned successful movie series, music pieces, toys, and several video games as well. The fantasy universe is both so immense and so detailed that each adaption has the opportunity to explore a different area and time period than the others. The newest variation to join this long line of success is the new action RPG game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. This open world fantasy extravaganza received great hype before its release date was even known, and the games arrival did not disappoint.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Review

The biggest change to the Borderlands formula in Pre-Sequel - aside from the game's setting, which affects gameplay and aesthetics in a number of ways - are the game's character classes, all based on characters previously seen in the series. These new classes will still serve familiar roles on the battlefield

Hyrule Warriors Review

Nintendo isn't known for branching out and trying new things. They milk their franchises, and not in a bad way. While many companies tend to produce shovelware, where the brand sells the game rather than the gameplay itself, Nintendo almost always brings AAA experiences to the table. With Hyrule Warriors, however, Nintendo has done something unprecedented for the company: they handed one of their most important franchises to another company to use. While my skepticism of this title was off the charts, I was intrigued during an E3 event in Toronto and was sold ...

Infamous First Light Review

Infamous First Light puts you in the shoes of Abigail Walker, aka Fetch, one of, if not the most interesting characters from InFamous Second Son. It takes you through the events that led up to Fetch's role in the third game of the franchise, something largely unexplored in the base game's plot.

Global Outbreak Doomsday Edition Review

Global Outbreak Doomsday Edition is another mobile port that was free for phones and tablets, but now you can pay real money for the privilege of having it on your PC. At least it’s much better than most mobile games that find their way to Steam.

The Last of Us: Remastered Review

The Last of Us: Remastered is another entry in Sony’s HD remaster collection – started back in 2009 with the God of War Collection. The only difference with developer Naughty Dog’s own take on HD re-releases is that The Last of Us is only a year old, and the first tangible re-release on Sony’s PlayStation 4.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

Batman might have ruined the superhero genre for us. While that type of title has never been especially strong on the whole, Arkham Asylum and its sequels proved that it could be done. So why are Activision still relying almost entirely on a format that's been basically unchanged since Spider-man 2 ten years ago? The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is another film tie-in that falls short of expectation, but it's the Spidey-by-Numbers feel that is the most surprising.
