Thief 4 Game Play Video and Review

Thief is part of a long lasting top tier game franchise. EIDOS has always been a bit of a snobby company to deal with (from a PR perspective) they don’t like to return calls, they apparently don’t feel they have to. The games they make are good, it’s true so ...

Batman Arkham Origins PC Review

 am an avid Batman fan so it was kind of disappointing to see that Batman Arkham Origins was not done well. The story line was OK, and the graphics were great… unfortunately that’s where it ends.  Like a lot of good ideas, execution is a huge part of a successful ...

Tomb Raider A Survivor is Born 2013 Review

he folks at EIDOS Canada, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics got together to take a page out of Lucas Films Star Wars by doing the whole Prequel, essentially rebooting the whole Laura Croft adventures.  This is a very tricky thing to do because you risk destroying an entire franchise this way if you ...

Bethesda Dishonored PC Review – Game Update

I guess the best way to describe this game is to say that EIDOS’s Thief got together with Microsoft’s Fable and had a love child called Bethesda’s Dishonored.  It’s a beautiful smart love child filled with energy and a wonderful smile.  OMG was it fun.  I started this off thinking I’ll ...

Driver San Francisco Review

Driver: San Francisco – Disappointment. Driver’s graphics are really kind of sub-par.  For a game released only a few months ago (end of August), it is just disappointing.  Cranked all the way up the graphics aren’t better than something you would see on an average xbox 360.  In addition the ...

LEGO Universe Review

LEGO Universe has been officially out for a few days now, but for many, the launch was mostly symbolic. Players who pre-ordered the game had access as early as the 8th of October, more than a fortnight before launch. I started playing about halfway between the early starter date and ...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Review

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is immediately engaging. It’s strikingly beautiful, with fantastic vistas and superb character animations. Sadly though, its pretty face can only carry it so far when the rest of the game is comparatively weak. Repetitious combat and level designs, a shoe-horned in story, and a ...

Amnesia: The Dark Descent Review

True survival horror games are rare these days. Games like Dead Space and the most recent Resident Evil titles can be scary but tend to be just as focused on action as they are on atmosphere. In Frictional Games’ Amnesia: The Dark Descent, you get no gun. When a gruesome ...

Mafia II Review

Mafia II is upon us and ushering in a new era of wise guys and made men. If you’ve been waiting for this one, there is good news – the game is fun. Having shootouts in bars while bottles explode and glass flies, finding a mob hacking your friend to ...

Razor 2: Hidden Skies Review

Razor2: Hidden Skies makes no apologies for its adherence to classic shoot-’em-up formulas. Drop an upgradable ship into a top-down sci-fi shooter, throw a zillion enemies and bullets onto the screen, and challenge the player to balance the equally fine arts of firing and dodging. There’s a reason why this ...

StarCraft II Wings of Liberty Review

In StarCraft II, it’s still the Terrans, Zerg, and Protoss clashing against each other, and you’re still mining minerals with SCVs, Drones, and Probes and pulling Vespene Gas from the ground to fuel production. It’s a classic style of real-time strategy play, one old-school RTS gamers should be very familiar ...

Need for Speed World Review

We rarely do reviews for free-to-play games, but occasionally a game comes along that masquerades under the free-to-play banner, but whose limitations for non-paying players are such that the game might as well just have a price tag on it. Need for Speed World, from EA Black Box and EA ...

Blacklight: Tango Down Review

There are loads of gamers who have played Modern Warfare 2 every day since its release — but haven’t touched the single-player campaign. It seems people really, really like to shoot other people in games. So a cheap, multiplayer-focused first-person shooter like Blacklight: Tango Down makes perfect sense. It’s not ...

Rhythm Zone Review

Let’s all be honest here: there’s no shortage of music/rhythm games out there. With so many different franchises competing against one another, it can be difficult for a new game to come along and earn its place among the competition. But that’s exactly what developer Sonic Boom Games is attempting ...

Transformers: War for Cybertron Review

I’ve never been as consistently interrupted while playing a game at the office as I was while playing through High Moon’s Transformers: War for Cybertron. I would put on headphones and play for ten or fifteen minutes, and I would suddenly feel a tingle in that weird lizard-brain proximity sense ...

Blur Review

Generally I’m one of the best gamers I know. I don’t say that to brag — I say it to provide some context when I say that Blur, the new racer from developer Bizarre Creations (Project Gotham Racing), can be damn hard. The single-player Career mode in Blur features some ...

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Review

I’ve been a fan of the Prince of Persia franchise ever since 2003′s The Sands of Time. The combination of acrobatics and combat– along with the sweeping environments — made the Prince of Persia franchise one of my favorites from the last generation. And despite Ubisoft beating the franchise into ...

Command & Conquer 4 PC Game Review

Billed as the finale to the long running real-time strategy franchise featuring Nod and GDI forces, EA Los Angeles’ Command & Conquer 4 is going to be a surprise to any fan of the Tiberian series. While you’ll see signature units and structures like GDI Mammoth Tanks and Nod Obelisks, ...
