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.

The Sims 3 University Life Review (PC)

By Naomi Brown () - 5.5 out of 10

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.

Croixleur Review (PC)

By Nicholas Bale () - 6.0 out of 10

A decent combat system is present in Croixleur, but a game that's fifteen minutes in length, lacks variety, and has some really long dialogues about bathing is hard to recommend. Read More.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Review (3DS)

By Nicholas Bale () - 7.5 out of 10

An emphasis on action and a mission-driven structure bring Luigi back to clear away the pesky poltergeists that have taken over Evershade Valley and restore the Dark Moon in the sky in an enjoyable adventure with only a few missteps along the way. Read More.

Guacamelee! Review (PS3)

By Liana Kerzner () - 9.0 out of 10

Guacamelee! accomplishes what it sets out to do remarkably well. It reminded me of the artistry required to make a limited set of 2D tools into memorable experiences, and even the fights I needed help with were a nostalgia trip. Read More.

Drip Drip Review (PC)

By Liana Kerzner () - 9.0 out of 10

Yes, the name is really odd, and no, it has nothing to do with heroin, though it is addictive. Drip Drip is a 2D strategy game where the object is to stop leaks from flooding the basements of various buildings during bad rain storms, by catching the water drips in various containers and emptying them at intervals out of windows.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection Review (X360)

By Daniel Acaba () - 7.5 out of 10

All in all this is a pretty solid package if you can simply get past the Dragon Rushes and the quirks of re-released PS2 titles. There is some frustration to be found but honestly it’s one of the better HD collections that’s been throw at the consoles this generation. These are both solid titles that each bring something to the table so it doesn’t feel like you’re simply playing the same game twice. Read More.

BioShock: Infinite Review (PC)

By Andrew Sztein () - 9.5 out of 10

With this release, the BioShock franchise hasn’t just established itself as a premier franchise in gaming to come out of this generation, but also one of the most important. It’s rare for a video game to intelligently tackle hard issues and force players to look at their own beliefs, and BioShock Infinite does that better than almost any other in this medium. Read More.
