    BioShock Infinite

    BioShock Infinite is one of the most surreal, beautiful and best written games of the generation.

    Every great story has a beginning. A place where you can all trace it back to, and in BioShock Infinite that beginning is a light house. It all starts with a light house. You inhabit Booker DeWitt a man who owes a great ... Read Full Review

    Hitman Absolution showcases Agent 47 on his road to find redemption against The Agency.

    Hitman: Absolution

    Hitman Absolution showcases Agent 47 on his road to find redemption against The Agency.

    Hitman Absolution is almost jarring to play after so many first and third person shooters. No longer are you the invincible hero who can easily outshoot whole trained armies. No, now you are one lone crazy bald man who g... Read Full Review

    Injustice: Gods Among Us

    Injustice offers a plethora of content, great cast, and succeeds and creating another memorable fighter.

    The moment Injustice starts, it is obvious NetherRealm wanted to create excellent fan service. The presentation is excellent here, down from the menus to the end credits, everything is presented with respect. What's also... Read Full Review

    Dead Space 3

    Dead Space 3 offers closure in the Isaac Clark story, while stumbling with some new features and focusing on action.

    When you play Dead Space 3, you will immediately feel like you're playing a Dead Space game. Sure, there's new (terrible) characters introduced, along with co-op for the series, but it's still Dead Space. There is still ... Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider offers the best Lara Croft experience yet with a riveting story, excellent pacing and polished graphics.

    Crystal Dynamics has shows real growth this generation with Tomb Raider Legend and Underworld, but I could of never imagined they would create something as impressive as Tomb Raider. Writing a smart, strong female is pro... Read Full Review

    A new open world franchise is born with this Hong Kong gem.

    Sleeping Dogs is a wonderful open world action game. The pacing is great, as soon you start the game you are thrown into Wei Shen's shoes in a deal that seems to have gone down very bad. The game starts off fast and inte... Read Full Review

    The most polished, narrative driven shooter is back! Master Chief returns for another trilogy and 343 nails it.

    It's been a very long time since we got to see Master Chief. 2007 we left Chief floating into space, with the Arbiter saying a few wise words. There have been great games in the series since then, the best being 2010's H... Read Full Review

    A disappointing campaign and terrible multiplayer cap off this year's most bland shooter.

    Medal of Honor rebooted itself in 2010 with an average outing, it of course ditched it's World War 2 roots and followed in the Modern Combat craze. The problem is following is if you're not perfecting, you're just playin... Read Full Review

    A new franchise is born...

    Resident Evil 6

    Resident Evil's assortment of genres may not please some fans, but it's a fun action game none-the-less.

    Resident Evil 6 is bigger than ever. So big in fact, it needs four separate campaigns to let the story unfold, and this is where it will polarize some gamers. Leon's campaign makes you remember why Resident Evil 4 was so... Read Full Review

    An alright game, with alright controls and alright everything.

    A soild return to the Sands universe is only bogged down by questionable combat.

    Bayonetta packs epic boss battles and strong gameplay into what will be one the year's best games.

    You don't really know what to expect from Bayonetta when you first start your game. It is very Japanese and it is very over the top. Your immediate reaction is to think of Devil May Cry but that feeling disappears when y... Read Full Review
