If it wasn’t for the glitches and the bland activities I would heartily say that Saint’s Row 4 is one of the best open world experiences on the market. Sadly these two issues really drag the game down to the point that it’s just a good game. While that’s more than can be said for a lot of recent releases I was waiting for it’s still a bit disappointing to see a game stumble and fall when it was so close to being one of the best.

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.
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 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.
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.
If you're a fan of hack and slash games in general or Capcom beat-em-ups in particular then there's absolutely no reason you shouldn't own this. This is a great game with a huge amount of replay value for the asking price. Read More.
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 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.

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. Read More.
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.
