    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2

    Meaty weapons and action propel this game into new heights of enjoyment

    With open ended first person shooters around every corner, it wouldn't hurt for some tactical, slow paced action. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 delivers mostly on this, but it's age is something to keep in mind.The st... Read Full Review

    Fun for a short while, but there's nothing beyond that short while

    After playing modern games for so long, it can't hurt to go back to retro games, or retro styled games at least. It can provide a refreshing experience and a clever distraction if you feel like breaking up the monotony a... Read Full Review

    Rough around the edges, but still provides an electrifying experience

    When it comes to creating a new IP for a console, things can get messy. Things can be even trickier when you're given the task to make a new series for one specific console. It certainly isn't easy, but I'm happy to repo... Read Full Review

    Lords of the Fallen (Limited Edition)

    A brilliant quest that should appeal to any RPG fan

    Lords of the Fallen is usually described as a Dark Souls clone. While it might share similar themes and styles, it strays away from it the more you play, and that isn't a bad thing. It is a fantastic game that needs to b... Read Full Review
