    Abysmal storytelling can't hide the fact that Diablo III brings its A-game when it comes to pulse-pounding action.

    Diablo III

    Abysmal storytelling can't hide the fact that Diablo III brings its A-game when it comes to pulse-pounding action.

    The Good: + fast-paced combat + great resource mechanics encourage tactical play + easy to join up with friends + skill system allows for customization and experimentation + fantastic sound and art design + the loo... Read Full Review

    It's not just a great game; it's a moving and compelling piece of interactive art that picks its battles and wins them.

    Bastion

    It's not just a great game; it's a moving and compelling piece of interactive art that picks its battles and wins them.

    + Combat is fast-paced and stays fresh + Story is powerful and perfectly delivered + Tons of options, from weapon choice to difficulity + Pitch-perfect soundtrack, voice acting, and art direction + Every piece suppor... Read Full Review

    Sonic Generations can provide some incredible thrills, but it does so inconsistently over its remarkably short length.

    Sonic Generations

    Sonic Generations can provide some incredible thrills, but it does so inconsistently over its remarkably short length.

    + Modern Sonic sections will satisfy your need for speed + Wide variety of challenge types + Offers 2D "classic" and 3D "modern" stages + Controls work well with a console controller - Level and boss quality is inc... Read Full Review

    Frequently just passable but occasionally brilliant, Battlefield 3 is an awe-inspiring albeit inconsistent experience.

    Battlefield 3

    Frequently just passable but occasionally brilliant, Battlefield 3 is an awe-inspiring albeit inconsistent experience.

    + Incredible visual detail + Immersive and intense multiplayer action + Wide variety of experiences + Squad mechanics are better than ever - Gunplay feels loose and imprecise - Environmental detail can obscure tar... Read Full Review

    It's lots of fun on the surface and surprisingly deep beneath it, with plenty of value to boot.

    Orcs Must Die!

    It's lots of fun on the surface and surprisingly deep beneath it, with plenty of value to boot.

    It would be really easy to dismiss Orcs Must Die as just another tower defense game, as it features the trappings of the genre - waves of various enemies, gold earned for killing said enemies, and traps to buy with that ... Read Full Review

    Red Orchestra 2 is a gem of a game buried under some unfortunate technical issues.

    Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad

    Red Orchestra 2 is a gem of a game buried under some unfortunate technical issues.

    Red Orchestra 2 at a glance: + Intense, rewarding action + Great cover and suppression mechanics + Exciting multiplayer modes - Lots of bugs and performance issues - Unreliable multiplayer server browser Play... Read Full Review

    It doesn't win many points for style or finesse, but Dead Island packs in more than its share of fun to compensate.

    Dead Island

    It doesn't win many points for style or finesse, but Dead Island packs in more than its share of fun to compensate.

    At a glance: + Fun, fresh, and ridiculous melee combat + Great atmosphere + Works as either a solo or co-op with friends experience - Poor story and character development - Uninspired side quests - Missing some ... Read Full Review

    Just Cause 2 gives you a massive world to roam and the tools to make that roaming an absolute joyride.

    Just Cause 2

    Just Cause 2 gives you a massive world to roam and the tools to make that roaming an absolute joyride.

    If Just Cause 2 were a movie, it would be the furthest thing from an indie art house movie you could possibly manage. It is a relentless parade of bullets, explosions, and absolute absurdity. Fortunately, the core game... Read Full Review

    Mafia II is a beautiful and exciting game which nonetheless fails to fully utilize some of its biggest strengths.

    Mafia II

    Mafia II is a beautiful and exciting game which nonetheless fails to fully utilize some of its biggest strengths.

    Exhilarating combat, excellent voice acting, an engaging story, and absolutely stunning visuals make Mafia II a game worth playing, even when the game seems to go out of its way to dampen the fun. Questionable pacing an... Read Full Review

    Guerrilla is a fun and action-packed ride which puts the focus on what it does best: gunfights and big explosions.

    Red Faction: Guerrilla

    Guerrilla is a fun and action-packed ride which puts the focus on what it does best: gunfights and big explosions.

    *This review only encompasses the single player portion of the game, as I have not played any multiplayer matches. When you think of guerrilla warfare, you probably think of small groups of freedom fighters launchin... Read Full Review

    Dead Space is an incredibly immersive and delightfully terrifying experience that should not be missed.

    Dead Space

    Dead Space is an incredibly immersive and delightfully terrifying experience that should not be missed.

    Dead Space is highly deserving of the moniker, "survival horror game," as you will spend a majority of your playing time in mortal fear simply trying to make it to the next save point or ammo pile. Everything about the ... Read Full Review
