The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Review (3DS)

By Andrew Sztein () - 9.5 out of 10

Take it from someone who got their Zelda start with the original golden NES cartridge and spent countless childhood hours drawing maps and figuring out the game's dark secrets; after all these years, after so many acclaimed games and titles, I can truly say with a straight face that Zelda has never been better.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review (X360)

By Naomi Brown () - 7.5 out of 10

Telltale tries to whet our appetite for grief, misery and zombies in this decently constructed DLC that bridges the gap between Season 1 and 2 of the Walking Dead series. Thought you got off easy? Well the zombie apocalypse is back, bringing back a taste of the pain and suffering we loved in Season 1. Read More.

Battlefield 4 Current-Gen Review (PC)

By Dashiell Young-Saver () - 8.0 out of 10

No matter the console though, a gamer simply can’t go wrong with Battlefield 4’s energetic, team-based multiplayer. It’s big enough to let you play as you really want to play, but also forces you to work with others to be successful, a combination that creates an ideal virtual war fantasy. Read More.

Mario Party: Island Tour Review (3DS)

By Matthew Pollesel () - 8.0 out of 10

Mario Party: Island Tour is the 13th game in the Mario Party series, and the first on the 3DS. For the most part, it's exactly as you'd expect a Mario Party game to be: you race other characters around a board, hoping to be the first one to reach the end. (Not surprisingly, luck plays a huge role.) Almost everything is redeemed, however, by the inclusion of Bowser's Tower, a solo mode that combines all the best aspects of the game into one fairly lengthy package. Read More.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Review (PC)

By Daniel Acaba () - 8.0 out of 10

To be frank there are probably games that are technically better than The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Mass Effect 3, for example, was a damn near perfect video game. But what The Bureau does with its story is infinitely more interesting than almost any other third-person shooter I’ve played in years. Plus there’s a feeling of really trying put into this whole package, trying to create something new that doesn’t alienate the existing fans. Read More.

Power Rangers Megaforce Review (3DS)

By Daniel Acaba () - 4.0 out of 10

So what does the game have going for it? Well it looks alright, has decent sound and there’s some mediocre gameplay here. Really the whole game would have been much better had they simply had the rangers learn how to shut up, letting you get to what the Power Rangers do best - kicking monsters in the face. Read More.

Super Mario 3D World Review (Wii-U)

By Nicholas Bale () - 9.5 out of 10

Super Mario 3D World brings the italian plumber and his friends back for some excellent platforming that's the mustachioed man at his best. The level design is excellent, the platforming precise, and the new powerup is a load of fun to play with. And when you get into multiplayer, things get hectic and fun as you and three other people race to finish each level before you manage to shove, burn, or throw each other to your deaths. Read More.

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Review (X360)

By Nicholas Bale () - 6.0 out of 10

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, based on the cartoon of the same name, will have you platforming, chowing down on ghosts, and turning into a variety of forms in order to defeat the evil Commander Betrayus. But don't expect a lot of excitement here, despite the addition of power berries and their transformations to mix things up; this game just fails to rise beyond its bland license. Read More.

The Walking Dead Episode 4: Around Every Corner Review (PC)

By Daniel Acaba () - 7.5 out of 10

The conclusion just ends up sticking in your craw. It’s not that its bad per se, more that it is poorly done. This could have been done in a more convincing matter but it really just feels like they threw their hands up and yelled “Good enough.” and called it a day which is just depressing. Read More.
