    While the gameplay is definitely lacking, it is impossible to deny how well told this story is.

    The Last of Us

    While the gameplay is definitely lacking, it is impossible to deny how well told this story is.

    Tomb Raider, Metro Last Light, Bioshock Infinite, and The Last of Us are essentially the same formula... Heavy on the cutscenes and story, low on the gameplay and player autonomy. All of these games try to cater to every... Read Full Review

    It is so rare to see a sequel absolutely outshine everything that came before it.

    Darksiders II

    It is so rare to see a sequel absolutely outshine everything that came before it.

    I never expected this to be so much fun. Darksiders 2 is a very competent action game with some decent RPG elements. Yes it copies everything from other franchises. Sure, it doesn't really have loot as good as Diablo 2, ... Read Full Review

    Played this game local co-op on the couch. If I had to do it alone, I would rather eat dirt.

    Gamespot was bang on with their review for once. This game is a mess. It has zero elements of survival horror (as did Resident Evil 5), yet it is also an incompetent action shooter. Combine this with a story who's target... Read Full Review

    Very different game than it's predecessor. In every single way.

    Had I not played Witcher 1, this would have easily been 8.5-9/10. However, the first game is one of my all time favorites, and thus I found myself wishing for a different game the whole time I played Witcher 2. This revi... Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider (The Final Hours Edition)

    Can't lie, TR is an enjoyable game. But also, not worth a full pricetag.

    Tomb Raider is a simple, predictable, and derivative third person shooter. We have seen all of this before, done better, in other games. Basically a heavily story driven game laced with lots of quick time events. There w... Read Full Review

    Despite some repetition and technical issues, Infamous shines by rejecting current gaming trends.
