MX vs. ATV: Supercross Review

November 18, 2014 |

When it was announced that Austrian publisher Nordic Games acquired the MX vs. ATV series after THQ declared bankruptcy and that the original developer Rainbow Studios would be handling the revival, fans were eager to get back on the dirt track again. But while MX vs ATV: Supercross is mildly entertaining, it ultimately feels outdated. Read More

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 Review

November 9, 2014 |

Based on the Disney XD series of the same name, last year’s Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures was an unexpected decent licensed video game. It’s sequel doesn’t stray far from its predecessor’s simple take on the 3D platformer genre, but it offers enough new features to keep fans of the show and the genre engrossed until the end.

Falling Skies: The Game Review

November 5, 2014 |

Due to limited development time, most licensed games are shameless, yet poorly developed ripoffs of well-known franchises. Falling Skies: The Game continues the trend but to its credit, it’s a somewhat tolerable XCOM knockoff. Read More

Paper Monsters Recut Review

October 21, 2014 |

It may have taken longer than expected, but Mobot Studios’ “recut” version of its successful 2013 mobile platformer finally makes its way onto the Wii U. But with the eShop already stocked with humdrum 2D platformers, is Paper Monster as bad as getting a paper cut? Read More

Chariot Review

October 19, 2014 |

Perhaps best known for its Zombie Tycoon series, Frima Studio’s quirky physics-based puzzle platformer, Chariot, attempts to recapture the fun of the increasingly forgotten local couch co-op gaming. And I am happy to say they succeeded. Read More

TinyKeep Review

October 2, 2014 |

Live. Die. Swear. Repeat. Those four words pretty much sum up Phigames’ adorably cruel Kickstarter funded title, TinyKeep. But while my patience grew thin over time, this bare-bone, yet unforgiving hack and slash has a lot of charm and heart. Read More

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (3DS) Review

September 16, 2014 |

Never straying too far from its arcade roots, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael’s exploits have always focused on mindless, button-mashing action. But with the 3DS’s TMNT movie tie-in, Magic Pockets, the studio behind Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance (GBA version), adds a little strategy and depth not normally associated with the pizza loving turtles.

Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark Review feature

Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark Review

September 7, 2014 |

Though not without flaws, recent video games based on the Transformers universe have managed to win over even the most dedicated fans. In an effort to merge High Moon Studios’ successful Cybertron series with the movie tie-ins based on the Michael Bay films, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is a muddled mess that drags the Cybertron series down in the process.

InFamous Second Son Review

September 3, 2014 |

New hero (or antihero), new superpowers, and a new open-world, as a half-sequel, half-reboot of the franchise, InFamous Second Son expands upon the strengths of its predecessors but it doesn’t manage to offer anything genuinely new to the genre. Read More

Tales From Space Mutant Blobs Attack Review

Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack Review

July 25, 2014 |

When Drinkbox Studios released Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack for the Vita in 2012, it offered a charming yet challenging puzzle platformer that tastefully incorporated the system’s capabilities. Fast forward two years and aside from a few tweaks to accommodate for the lack of a touch-screen, the PS3 and 360 port is surprisingly just as fun. Read More
