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.

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.

Metro: Last Light Review (PC)

By Daniel Acaba () - 9.0 out of 10

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.

Soul Sacrifice Review (Vita)

By Matthew Pollesel () - 7.5 out of 10

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.
