Besides being my new favorite 3DS game, Donkey Kong Country Returns is a simply a great gaming experience, made better by its portability and lack of motion controls. Look no further than this exemplary port of a fantastic game if you've had an old-school platforming itch that's needed scratching. Read More.
Resident Evil: Revelations returns, this time to home consoles and the PC, letting those without a 3DS experience excellent survival horror gameplay - and if the single-player story doesn't catch your fancy, there's a good chance the multiplayer (or solo, if that's your thing) Raid Mode might.

If you're not completely sick of zombies, The Last of Us is a no-brainer purchase. If you are sick of zombies, there's still a whole lot to like here. There's also the consideration of the sheer technical achievements PS3 fans have come to love which will make this game a must-see for video game aficionados. Read More.
The name of this game should be Dead Island: Big Disappointment. It failed to deliver anything significantly new or exciting. The new elements that were introduced were lacking and the game itself felt like a complete rehash of the old, even down to the environments and layouts of some of the interiors. Read More.
Strike Suit Infinity is fun, it's explosive, it's pretty to look at, but in the end it's simply a score-attack game that wears out its welcome as a result. Read More.
While there's something for the eyes in God Mode, the game just lacks in content - arenas to fight through and unlocks to earn - and a slow-as-molasses levelling system doesn't help with that at all. Read More.
Injustice is easily the best superhero-based fighting game since Marvel vs. Capcom 2 over a decade ago, and makes a strong case for best superhero fighting game ever. Read More.
It was really nice to finally have story issues revealed and to know what was going on, but I was a little disapointed at the limited game environment. And I'm really not sure where the game has left to go after this installment, but Erica was still a pretty impressive gumshoe. Her 'assistant' wasn't too bad either. It was really awesome to see how the story finally came together. Read More.
Metro: Last Light is a damn good game but it squanders what it has going on for it. While it might technically speaking be a more solid gaming experience than its predecessor it seems to suffer in the game design department which is a shame. That said this is still an amazing game that anyone who enjoys shooters and / or horror titles should give a try. Read More.
Sacred Citadel is a competent brawler, but the fun may pass by rather quickly. Read More.
There's no real reason to play this Soul Hackers port when far better titles in the genre have been released since. Read More.
Here's the unfortunate truth about Soul Sacrifice: for all of Sony's positioning of the game as the Vita's "big release" for Spring (and I mean that literally; it's the only Vita game getting a physical release between March 21st and June 21st), it's an extremely niche game. Not only that, while the niche it targets may be huge in Japan -- specifically, people love Monster Hunter-style grinding -- there's not exactly an abundance of evidence suggesting the genre is about to be embraced by North Americans gamers in any significant way.
Oh, and unfortunate truth number two: Soul Sacrifice probably isn't good enough to change any of that. Read More.
Wander of the Dragons is not only the worst game in the Double Dragon series, it can possibly also lay claim to being the worst beat ‘em up ever and the worst game on Xbox Live. Read More.
Heart of the Swarm, part 2 in the StarCraft II trilogy, continues the storyline from the cliffhanger ending of part 1 from the perspective of the Zerg and improves core mechanics of multiplayer matchmaking. Read More.
Sadly, Sims 3 University Life is lacking in a multitude of ways, showing itself to be a generally disappointing expansion. It not only fails to significantly improve the University experience, but it seems to backslide in a few ways, making the game not quite as fun to play. Read More.
