    Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam Expansion Review

    The Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam Expansion is a pretty large expansion and well worth the $15. ...

    The Sims 3 Review

    If there was any confusion about what you’re getting with the Sims 3 on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, let me clear it up for you: it’s the Sims 3, the extremely popular PC life simulator, but on consoles. Obviously the game has been reworked to function with controllers instead of a...

    Rock of the Dead Review

    On the surface, Rock of the Dead sounds like a great use of all those plastic guitars cluttering your living room. Meteors crash to Earth and give off radiation that reanimates the dead and causes horrible monsters to spawn from the dirt. You need to stop them by wandering the world with...

    Little League World Series 2010 Review

    There’s no doubt that sports games have lost the simplicity that made them so accessible back in the days of the Genesis and Super Nintendo, when player models were nothing more than 2D sprites on the screen. In those days the expectation for a realistic depiction of the sport was minimal. That...

    Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Review

    It doesn’t have the words “tomb” or “raider” in the title, but Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is the best Tomb Raider game in a long time. This is a very different adventure for Lara. She’s still spelunking for treasure, but Guardian of Light finds her playing cooperatively with a...

    Xbox 360 Slim (black, 250GB) Review

    Microsoft kick-started the “next-generation” of gaming on November 22, 2005, when the company released the Xbox 360, beating both Nintendo and Sony to market. Since then, the console has sold roughly 40 million units worldwide and has brought some innovative ideas to the gaming industry in the form of Xbox Live, the...

    Clash of the Titans: The Videogame Review

    Surprise, surprise, Clash of the Titans is an awful movie-turned-videogame. While some games like this year’s surprising Toy Story 3 buck this trend, this generic and uninspired game proves that crappy license titles are, sadly, a fact of life. Apparently this is the will of the gods. This boss fight looks fun,...

    DeathSpank Review

    Every RPG has a hero. He or she can be brave, moody and ridiculously good looking, but for the most part, the hero is always willing to do the bidding of others. DeathSpank is a satirical action RPG from the creator of Monkey Island that packs epic loot drops and a naive,...

    Beat Hazard Review

    The concept of Beat Hazard is very simple. You play as a little ship that floats around the screen spewing forth several different types of bright, flashy laser blasts as fleets of ships of varying sizes try to bring you down. Oh, and the real kicker is that both pieces of the...

    Deadliest Warrior: The Game Review

    There’s certainly something to be said for a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Deadliest Warrior is a traditional fighting game at first glance, but once you delve deeper into the download it becomes clear that this is something a bit different. You can lop off limbs, achieve instant kills with...

    Alpha Protocol Review

    Obsidian’s made a name for itself over the years for taking on the daunting task of producing sequels to complex, high profile role-playing games. First it was Knights of the Old Republic II, then Neverwinter Nights 2, and soon we’ll see what the studio is able to do with Fallout: New Vegas....

    Pure Futbol Review

    When I saw the words “Authentic Soccer” adorning the cover of Pure Futbol, I assumed I was in for a gameplay experience that was at least somewhat grounded in reality. While players do have to adhere to the laws of gravity in Ubisoft’s second outing to the soccer pitch (after the decent...
