  • Review Watch_Dogs: Bad Blood (Xbox One)

    Teaching an old dog new tricks

    It should come as no surprise, but Watch Dogs’ first piece of single player DLC is essentially more Watch Dogs.

  • Review Sacred 3 (Xbox 360)

    Ruining the gauntlet.

    When a game series throws out fistfuls of features that were part of the very reason that fans of the series became fans of the series, people aren’t usually all that happy about it. There’s a desire for improvement and growth of course, but there’s also that desire for more of the same. Fans of the first two Sacred...

    Crossing the line?

    When Codemasters announced that they’d be reviving the Race Driver series with GRID 2 last year, many people were suitably excited.

  • Review Blood of The Werewolf (Xbox 360)

    Murder, she wrote

    Blood of the Werewolf is a tough-as-nails action platformer that marries core genre conventions with modern mechanics and ideas.

  • Review Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (Xbox 360)

    Strike three. And you're out!

However, if you can look past the ridiculous, and...

  • Review Earth Defense Force 2025 (Xbox 360)

    Buggin' Out

    Earth Defense Force 2025 takes itself about as seriously a SyFy original film would.

Missions aren’t very complex; hundreds of giant enemies are about to drop into the environment…kill them all. And that’s about the...
