    Ironically, what this game needed was simply more time.

    TimeShift

    Ironically, what this game needed was simply more time.

    TimeShift is a perfect example of publishers pushing an unfinished game onto the market in time for the holiday season. While the result is by no means disastrous, there's no doubt the game could have been significantly ... Read Full Review

    A fantastic game top to bottom.

    Okami

    A fantastic game top to bottom.

    Okami could very well be the game that settles the debate whether or not video games should be considered art. It's hard to not be enthralled by its lush, flowing colours, breath-taking art design and highly stylized sce... Read Full Review

    HIgh production values and an engaging combat system help over the fact that it's over oh so soon.

    HIgh production values and an engaging combat system help over the fact that it's over oh so soon.

    Much has been said about Ninja Theory's action-adventure starring the fiery red-head Nariko. Called a shameless God of War clone with roots going back to the days of the original XBox and reviews both amazingly positive ... Read Full Review

    Zelda no Densetsu: Kamigami no Triforce

    When its successors copy it so shamelessly, you know the game has got to be good.
