The Shadow Sun Review | Strong Roots, Wilted Leaves

by Matt Akerson January 20, 2014
The Shadow Sun comes from a pedigree of BioWare-caliber production, but it's not the innovative RPG you might think it is.

Ys: Memories of Celceta Review | Portable RPG Addiction

by Ben Runningson December 9, 2013
Ys is a long running JRPG series that I’ve wanted to check out for quite some time, and with Memories of Celceta, I finally got a chance to. There’s a very clear reason why these games have a cult following: Memories of Celceta is a ton of fun. It may not be the best RPG […]


Zombie Crane Defense | Does it Squish the Competition?

by Nick Pinkertonon December 2, 2013
Featured Mobile Game
Zombie video games have gotten to the “dime a dozen” state. I can’t count the number of zombie games on a particular console with my two hands. Zombies can be plugged in for just about any type of game; there are zombie FPSs, strategy games, RPGs, and even tower defense games. TheSignCo Productions has taken […]

Knack Review | How Does This Sony Launch Title Really Stack Up?

by Darrin Wrighton November 18, 2013
When Sony‘s PlayStation 4 launched last Friday, gamers had a wealth of digital exclusives and third-party titles to choose from, but slim pickings on the first-party retail exclusives: Killzone: Shadow Fall or Knack. You probably should’ve picked Killzone. That’s not to say Knack is bad — it’s just not going to set the world on […]


Batman: Arkham Origins Review | Has the Caped Crusader Worn His Welcome?

by Darrin Wrighton October 29, 2013
There’s an old expression: “You can never have too much of a good thing.” Whoever came up with that didn’t play Batman: Arkham Origins. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not that Batman: Arkham Origins is a bad game. It’s just that you’ve played it – and a better version of it – already. Batman: […]

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Review | Assemble

by Darrin Wrighton October 25, 2013
The Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and LEGO. What could go wrong? When LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was announced for practically every console in existence not named the Nintendo Wii, fans were stoked. After all, TT Games had done DC Comics fans proud with LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. Did they do the same with […]


The Wolf Among Us Review | Bark at the Moon

by William Harmonon October 19, 2013
I’ll be honest, it took me some time to pick up Telltale’s first title, The Walking Dead. I had heard about how good it was, but it had been a long time since I’d gotten into point-and-click adventure games and I just wasn’t in that zone. Suffice to say when I DID pick it up […]

NHL 14 Review | Action Packed Classic

by Chris Calasahanon October 5, 2013
When people think of Hockey, some very obvious things come to mind, body-crushing hits and intense fist fights.  Hockey can very easily be considered to be the most violent of sports out there.  EA Sports hit this aspect of this game out of the park and it makes for a very fun gaming experience as every […]

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD Review | Set Sail

by Darrin Wrighton September 23, 2013
Ten years ago, one of the most (initially) divisive releases in The Legend of Zelda series was released… and today, it’s exactly what the Wii U needs. I remember when Nintendo first unveiled The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, and how outraged most gamers were since the GameCube exclusive looked absolutely nothing like what […]

Killer is Dead Review | Lifeless

by Ben Runningson September 18, 2013
Killer is Dead is the latest from Suda 51, creator of Killer7 and No More Heroes, and as a longtime fan of both those games, I was very excited for this game. However, since I’m not the only Suda 51 fan at The Game Fanatics, I talked Greg DeVries into reviewing the game with me. […]

Rayman Legends Review – Boy She Makes Me Sing (Bam-BA-Lam)

Rayman Legends Review | Boy She Makes Me Sing (Bam-BA-Lam)

by Jake Valentineon September 16, 2013
277 days. That’s how long I waited for Rayman Legends to release. Many of you will point out that the number seems extraordinarily large, but we have to remember that the game was supposed to be a launch title for the Wii U. It was then pushed back to a “launch window” type category before […]

by Max Delgadoon September 17, 2014
It seems as though Ubisoft has taken a page out of the old gladiatorial days of ancient Rome for their upcoming open-world shooter, Far Cry 4. That’s right, Far Cry 4’s Arena Mode will pit the player in a massive colosseum filled with energetic crowds as you are forced to face off against Kyrat’s vicious locals and exotic […]

by Chris Angelon September 16, 2014
When Techland set out to make Dying Light, it was meant to be the sequel to their other zombie FPS/FPP, Dead Island. When they realized that the brand new features, massive open world, day & night cycle and design of the zombies were so different, they decided that Dying Light would have to be its own beast.  One […]
