    Destiny

    A "Mass Effect"-like FPS that is decent fun.

    Bungie's "Halo" trilogy was a landmark achievement in the FPS genre. Even their "Halo: Reach", the 2010 prequel, was great. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for their latest creation, the original IP, "Destiny". Like ... Read Full Review

    The PS3's best exclusive game.

    The Last of Us

    The PS3's best exclusive game.

    Gripping. That's a generic one-word description for Naughty Dog's masterpiece. But it's true. A cross between Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" and Robert Kirkman's "The Walking Dead", Sony's "The Last of Us" is one of those ... Read Full Review

    Watch Dogs

    It's like GTA for the Wi-Fi generation.

    Ubi Soft's new IP "Watch Dogs" was built for the next-gen consoles. It was hyped as the next big action franchise due to a spectacular demo shown at E3 2012. However, the final product isn’t exactly groundbreaking.... Read Full Review

    BluePoint's XBOX 360 port of Respawn Entertainment's debut game for the XBOX ONE is a very good one. I've played both console versions and aside from the visuals, they are both identical in terms of content and performan... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto IV

    A very good, yet very disappointing "Grand Theft Auto" game.

    Now that GTA V has been released to fabulous reviews (and earned $800 mil on Day One!!), I thought I'd go back and re-review its predecessor. Well, this isn't so much a review as much as brief look back. GTA IV was the m... Read Full Review

    It's the best entry in the series.

    You could say "Far Cry 3" plays like a streamlined version of its ambitious, but ultimately flawed predecessor. The result is a definite improvement. Now "Far Cry 2" was a very good game, but the monotonous driving, endl... Read Full Review

    Collection 3 isn't up to "Call of Duty" DLC standards.

    "Modern Warfare 3 - Collection 3: Chaos Pack" was not made for players who have multiplayer mayhem in mind. It was designed for those who prefer the co-op aspect of COD. It includes four Spec Ops missions, "Chaos" mode a... Read Full Review

    "Judgment" is fun, but inferior to its predecessors.

    "Gears of War: Judgment" is the fourth GOW game and the least satisfying in the series due to a lack of innovation and game modes. A direct prequel to the original GOW, it does not feature Marcus Fenix or Dominic Santiag... Read Full Review
