    Hitman Absolution is total letdown thanks to contradictory design choices, forgettable soundtrack and inane plot.

    Hitman: Absolution

    Hitman Absolution is total letdown thanks to contradictory design choices, forgettable soundtrack and inane plot.

    Let me get one thing straight. The Hitman series is awesome. There's no sensation in a video game quite like doing something you shouldn't be doing and stealthily getting away with. Hitman Blood Money, the fourth install... Read Full Review

    Less then a 9? Seriously?

    After a long break the console 2D Mario is finally back. New Super Mario Bros on the DS proved that another 2D Mario game was needed. Whether you decide to tackle it solo or submit yourself to the at-times fun, at-times ... Read Full Review

    Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Our beloved plumber is back in an even better, improved and more varied platformer then its predecessor.

    The strange thing about Mario games is that there was never a sequel to a Mario game on the same console since the Super Nintendo. The Nintendo 64 had Super Mario 64, the Game cube had Super Mario Sunshine and the Wii ha... Read Full Review

    The black sheep of the Ace Attorney games.

    As you may have figured out, I love the Ace Attorney series. Ever since I've picked up the first I immediately fell in love with it and bought all its sequels. Most of the games turned out fine, the main problem was that... Read Full Review

    Sonic the Hedgehog brings us another great fast-paced platformer, but if it's your first time, then prepare for trouble.

    What was once a great fast-paced gaming series, has now evolved in adventure games, racing games and other genres. So it's true that Sonic has taken quite a while. Luckily Dimps Corporation shows up to help out Sonic Tea... Read Full Review

    The dead have some unique, innovative tricks up their sleeves.
