Low on Substance and Price
Vanquish is a glossy, good looking game with a marginal story and enjoyable controls and game play. What it lacks in story it makes up for in variety of environments and enemies. The game is not one...
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Hello Stealthy Goodness
I had never played a Tom Clancy game. Never. When I saw the footage for this game at the 2013 E3, I thought, I can't go wrong. What I failed to take into account was the high value give to the mult...
Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition
Roaming a Wasteland Couldn't Be Any More Engaging
Fallout 3 was a game I had picked up based on recommendations from others. I am not a big fan of RPGs and until recently, was not comfortable in games that are played from the first person point of v...
Fallout 3: Broken Steel
Additional Content Brings Greater Closure to Excellent Game
Fallout 3 had a somewhat lacklustre ending. The game even allows you to ease your way through the ending, if you so desire. With Broken Steel, the gamer is given the chance to fight alongside the Br...
Fallout 3: Mothership Zeta
In Space, No One can Hear You Scream, in Frustration
Mothership Zeta was the final piece of DLC released for Fallout 3 and while I can't say, so far, that any of the DLC has blown me away, this one had moments where I wasn't bored or tired of doing the ...
Fallout 3: Point Lookout
More to see in the Wasteland, but Not Much Added
I finished my expedition in Point Lookout this weekend and while it leaves Operation Anchorage in the dust, it doesn't outpace The Pitt by much. The moral dilemma that haunts the main storyline in Th...
Fallout 3: The Pitt
Delve into the Pitt for More Moral Dilemmas in the Wasteland
The second DLC that I played for Fallout 3 was the Pitt. In this DLC, the story starts with yet another distress call, pulling you to the very top of the Wasteland map. A slave has escaped and wants...
Fallout 3 - Operation: Anchorage
Pointless Add-On Adds Little in Value
Operation Anchorage was the first DLC offered for Fallout 3. I purchased the Game of the Year edition and got all the DLC bundled together, thinking that was a better buy, which it was. This was the...
The Last of Us
Naughty Dog Delivers Another Amazing Game
The hype for The Last of Us had me on edge the moment the game arrived on my doorstep what seems like a month ago. The game isn't easy, though many have commented that if you're not playing it on a h...
Uncharted: Chizu no Bouken no Hajimari
Visually Stunning Handheld that Makes the Console Shine
I had been watching the price of the PS Vita since it released. While all my friends told me to wait for the PS4 to release, I saw a deal and grabbed it. With the console I bought the PS+ subscripti...
Stealth Optional in this Action Adventure Game
The Hitman franchise was one of the first stealth games I'd played when I got my PS2. The worlds were fairly open. You could move around and find a variety of ways to eliminate your targets. The AI...
Saints Row: The Third
Top Notch Game Play Coupled with an Absurd Story Makes for a Solid Outing
Saints Row the Third has been compared to Grand Theft Auto, but silly and crude. That assessment, from what I can tell, is about right, though it doesn't give the game nearly enough credit. In Steel...
Where's My Perry?
A Simple Game that Delivers Quick Levels and Amusing Sound Bites
The Where's Perry app was the free app of the week at Starbucks this past week, so I took the time to sift through a little bit of it after playing the free version months ago. The principle of the g...
Action Game That Gets Action
Bulletstorm starts off with a bang and doesn't slow down, despite a heavy dose of sophomoric dialogue and meandering story. The game is a first-person shooter (FPS) style that follows Grayson Hunt wh...
Resident Evil: Revelations
Horror on the Small Screen Working at a High Level
Resident Evil Revelations was the first game that drew my attention to the 3DS. The story is just as derivative as you would expect with a series that has such a lengthy history, at points you're not...
Tomb Raider (The Final Hours Edition)
Action Adventure at Its Finest
When it was announced that Tomb Raider would be re-released, I yawned. I had never played any of the previous games and hadn't thought to watch the Angelina Jolie movie either. I now consider myself...
Gears of War: Judgment
Weak Addition to Long Standing Series
Gears of War is known for its multi-player and cover shooting mechanics. That is to say, the story isn't at the forefront, and this is no exception. The game progresses exactly as you'd expect. The...
Adventure through Colombia Adds to the Lore of Bioshock
A highly hyped game is usually a major disappointment once I get to it, this was not the case with BIoshock. The game is all it is cracked up to be and then some. As I played the game, the thing tha...
God of War: Ascension
A Timid Roar from the God of War
When I finished God of War 3 years ago, I thought, 'Wow, what an amazing ending.' When I heard about a new game coming to the series, I had my doubts. Every story has an ending and God of War had an...
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
New Spin on a Classic Game Franchise
Metal Gear Solid Rising is the newest entry in the Metal Gear Series, but it was not helmed by Mr. Kojima directly, but by Bayonetta creator Platinum games. What the game lacks in Metal Gear mystique...
Dead Space 3
Action Adventure with Little to No Horror Delivers Mixed Bag
Like many gamers, I like a good story, a good adventure and I like to be surprised. Dead Space 3 indeed delivers these things in equal measure, but also brings in elements that some gamers may find t...
Kyokugen Dasshutsu 9 Jikan 9 nin 9 no Tobira: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors
Great Portable Game
I picked up 999 on a whim more than a year ago, planning on taking it with me on vacation, but since I haven't really taken any vacations in a while, that didn't pan out. The game of 999 is based on ...
Learn to Play the Guitar, Maybe
I have had this game since October 2012 and have diligently played through much of it, though I'm still early on. As advertised, Rocksmith breaks down how to play a guitar with coloured strings and m...
Penguins of Madagascar
Solid Puzzle Challenges with License that Could Be More
For less than $5, this game was quite a steal! The idea is rather simple, there are three parts of the game, disjointed stories with basically the same ideas peppered throughout. Skipper and the cre...
Silent Hill 4: The Room
Scary Like the Others, But Not Nearly as Haunting
This game moves the location of Silent Hill into one room which has a portal to another world that is in Silent Hill itself. While the story was weak, at best, and the controls from First Person to T...
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Action Adventure Game Fun, But It's Been Done
I realise that playing a game that is more than five years old is at my own risk, but I have heard nothing but great things about Uncharted and Naughty Dog. In this story, the gamer follows Nathan Dr...
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
A Little Too Familiar Game Play & Story Make this Lacklustre
The story of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow felt familiar from the opening cut-scenes, and became more familiar as the hours went on. The story mirrors many that we as gamers have seen before, man lose...
Nothing New Doesn't Detract from this Franchise
Bioshock was a wonderful game that had many twists and turns that had me utterly gobsmacked as I made my way through Rapture. In a return trip to Rapture, I found things felt all too familiar, yet I ...
The Great Pumpkin Festival
The Perfect Nostalgia App for the Peanuts Lover
Perhaps more memorable than the Charlie Brown Christmas is the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, the iPad app (also available for Android), allows the gamer to relieve the highlights of the TV special. Th...
The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series
Fresh Take on Zombie Games, Excellent Adaptation of Series
The Walking Dead TV show debuted on AMC several years ago, astounding viewers with the realistic portrayal of the tragedy of a zombie apocalypse. In this game, released as five separate episodes on P...
Dead Space 2
Slight Improvements from the Original, More of an Add-On than a Separate Game
Dead Space 2 starts, seemingly right where the original ends. Issac is in a hospital of some sort, unaware he'd been there for years, making something he doesn't remember. His mind is fractured from...
A Charlie Brown Christmas
All the Nostalgia of the Original TV Special
The Charlie Brown Christmas App for the iPad (also available for Android devices) tells the story of the Charlie Brown Christmas interactively. Each page has a section for you to listen to the charac...
Despite the Age, Still Terrifying
When Dead Space came out, one of my friends let me borrow it, saying it was a great game. The first night, I had nightmares after only playing an hour and had to only play the game during the dayligh...
Assassin's Creed III
Interesting Story Can't Salvage Glitching, Annoying Protagonist and Frustrating Game Play
Assassin's Creed 3 is the latest entry in the Assassin's Creed series, taking the story from the familiar setting of Europe to the burgeoning New World of America during its revolutionary war. The st...
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
The Amalgamation of Disney Characters not for Everyone
I picked this game up on release and have tried to slog through this game. I have to start this review off by saying the only other KH game I've played was the first one, I loved that, but the jump f...
Resident Evil 6
Latest Entry Low on Scares, Delivers Decent Story
Resident Evil is a franchise that has been around for some time. I didn't sample the game until Resident Evil 4 came out on the PS2. I loved RE 4, so much so that I picked up RE5 without question. ...
Dante's Inferno: Shinkyoku Jigoku-Hen
And the Words 'Cheap Death' Were Redefined and We All Stood in Awe…
I picked this game up not long after the last God of War game came out. And while all my gaming friends tell me it is a mortal sin to compare games, I couldn't help myself. This game is a cross betw...
Compelling Story with Creative Game Play Makes This a Must Play Game
I'm often late to the party, but this was a gross oversight on my part. I generally steer clear of games that are played from the First Person perspective, I find it disorienting. But after a succes...
God of War: Ghost of Sparta
Weakest of all of Kratos' Adventures
In God of War: Ghost of Sparta, long-time fans can enjoy another adventure designed for a portable device. Unfortunately, the game doesn't hearken to its console predecessors, but to other mobile gam...
