Regular Show: The Great Prank War Review (iOS)

by Jeff Smithon August 13, 2014
Mobile games are a mixed bag. Sometimes you get something simple and brilliant, like Rovio’s Bad Piggies, and sometimes you get something ambitious, like some of EA’s ventures onto the platform. In this case, Regular Show: The Great Prank War is neither.

State of Decay Review | Good and Bad, No Middle Ground

by William Harmonon July 28, 2014
I picked up State of Decay on the Steam Summer Sale this year, and it was the first game I installed and booted up from that haul. Developed by Undead Labs, this is a game that promised an involved zombie surviving experience. Did it deliver? Let’s start with the good:

Sniper Elite 3 Review | Steady, Aim, Missed.

by Tom Dearsleyon July 9, 2014

Kirby: Triple Deluxe Review | Cute Overload

by Jeff Smithon June 25, 2014
Few games turn me into a pacifist the way Kirby: Triple Deluxe did. Throughout the span of my 11 hours with the game, I met some enemies too adorable to slay, even if I did so while wearing a jester’s hat. Of course, this game is more than a fantastic art style—much, much more.

Mario Golf: World Tour Review | On Par

by Ben Runningson June 3, 2014
I spent a ridiculous amount of time with Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour on the GameCube and it is hard to believe that it has taken this long for another 3D entry in the series. However, Mario Golf: World Tour is two steps forward and one large step off to the side.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Game Review | Not Quite Amazing, but…Spider-Man!

by Alena Alambeigion May 6, 2014
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game destined for greatness, or video game mediocrity? It seems the latter. You will start by picking a difficulty, Human, Hero, or Super Hero. We ended up playing Super Hero with no problems, which leads us to believe anything less wouldn’t have been much of a challenge.
