The Sims 3: Island Paradise Review (PC)

By Naomi Brown () - 7.5 out of 10

This expansion immerses the Sim player like never before, adding in some really interesting new mechanics that add to the gameplay element. However, between the bugs and some odd design choices, I’m not entirely sure they have a home run here, but they’ve definitely gotten it close. Read More.

Zeno Clash II Review (PC)

By Nicholas Bale () - 6.5 out of 10

While Zeno Clash II gives fans more of what made the first game as fun and unique as it was, it also creates new problems when the underlying systems that govern the game don't change along with the scope. Read More.

Retrovirus Review (PC)

By Nicholas Bale () - 7.0 out of 10

Retrovirus is a cool jaunt around a computer to fight off a virus that has wreaked havoc within, and while it delivers a fast-paced and exploratory six-degree shooter, it doesn't have enough content to justify its length. Expect to see the same environments multiple times, backtracking and fighting off respawned enemies as you do so. Read More.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf Review (3DS)

By Nicholas Bale () - 9.0 out of 10

Despite a couple hiccups with the inventory management, Animal Crossing: New Leaf still manages to provide an irresistable experience, one full of new features, games, and customization options that keep you coming back for more. Read More.

Remember Me Review (X360)

By Naomi Brown () - 5.0 out of 10

Remember Me is confused. It wants to be a button masher, but it also wants to force strategy on the player. It wants to be a platformer and puzzle solver, but it doesn’t know how to carry those elements throughout the entire game long enough to keep it interesting and exciting. I felt like the game was all over the place and didn’t really have a good direction or focus. Read More.

GRID 2 Review (X360)

By Andrew Sztein () - 8.5 out of 10

Grid 2 is slightly flawed, but more than worthy successor to not only the original Grid, but Codemasters' enviable stable of racing titles. It may not be perfect, but the edge-of-control style of racing will really appeal to those who want something in between the ridiculous bombast of Need for Speed and the crushing realism of other driving sims.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Review (3DS)

By Andrew Sztein () - 9.5 out of 10

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 Review (Wii-U)

By Nicholas Bale () - 8.0 out of 10

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. Read More.

The Last of Us Review (PS3)

By Liana Kerzner () - 9.5 out of 10

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.

Dead Island: Riptide Review (X360)

By Naomi Brown () - 6.5 out of 10

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.

God Mode Review (PC)

By Nicholas Bale () - 6.0 out of 10

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.

Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller - Episode 3 The Oracle Review (PC)

By Naomi Brown () - 8.0 out of 10

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.
