Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders From Planet Space Review
Blowing up massive bugs and spaceships in Earth Defense Force has always been a blast, and Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders From Planet Space for the PlayStation Vita manages to perfectly capture that mindless fun in a portable package that's stuffed with content.
Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow Of New Despair Review: Kill Em! Kill Em All!
When I sit down to watch a movie, sometimes I want Citizen Kane and other times I want the pure, mindless fun of a Syfy original. The same goes for gaming, too. And when it comes to games, few series pull off the unadulterated fun of a straight-to-TV B-movie quite like Earth Defense Force. And now that we've got Earth Defense Force 4.1: Shadow of New Despair for the PlayStation 4, we officially have the best offering in the series to date.
StarCraft 2 Legacy of the Void Review: Fun Even For StarCraft Newbies
I’ve been putting off playing StarCraft for years. Real time strategy can be intense, and videos of people making 10 moves per second made getting started seem like more work than fun. The fatal flaw in my plan is I’m a sucker for a good story, and that was ultimately what hooked me on StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void.
Star Wars Battlefront Review: This Reboot Isn't For Everyone
Star Wars: Battlefront is a good game. I'm just not sure it's a good game for me.
Yo-Kai Watch Review: This Game Has Spirit
Yo-Kai Watch, the latest monster-catching game to grace the Nintendo 3DS, is something of a slow burn in the opening hours. Give those flames time to catch hold, though, and you’ll discover an entertaining romp that combines some familiar systems with creative new ideas in a way that makes Yo-Kai Watch difficult to put down. In short: It might just consume you.
Fallout 4 Review: Bethesda Did It Again
Before Fallout 4's launch, I joked that you could write an accurate review of the game before you even played it if you've experienced past Bethesda role-playing games. This turned out to be mostly true.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Review: Forgettable Warfare
While Call of Duty games tend to blur together, the Treyarch-developed titles in the series always stood apart for me. The team took interesting risks with each game. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for Black Ops 3
Android Assault Cactus Review: Bullets, Bombs, Robots and Rage Quits
Take a closer look at Witch Beam Games' "twin stick shootyfun" Android Assault Cactus, a cute but hectic 3D bullet frenzy. An all female roster of androids must save the interstellar ship, the Genki Star, from certain destruction, but a horde of belligerent robots stands in their way.
Corpse Party: Blood Drive Review: Thrills, Chills And A Few Spills
Just in time for Halloween, the doors of Heavenly Host Elementary School have once again been flung open, inviting PlayStation Vita owners to brave its many horrors…or die trying. Get ready to face an army of vengeful spirits in Corpse Party: Blood Drive.
Bedlam Review: Fragging Through Gaming's History
The ‘90s were a special era in gaming. More and more developers were just starting to stretch their legs and test the limits of the medium, making for new and interesting games that helped build a foundation for what we play today. Perhaps Bedlam’s greatest achievement is that, for better or worse, it flawlessly captures the experience of playing on the PC nearly two decades ago. It doesn’t hurt that the game is also pretty fun and plenty hilarious to boot.
The Beginner's Guide Review: No, This Isn't Stanley Parable 2
Stanley Parable co-creator Davey Wreden released his new game The Beginner's Guide this week. If you buy it expecting a spiritual successor to Parable, you're going to be disappointed.
Destiny The Taken King Review: Aiming For The FPS Crown
Destiny’s first year out in the wild, much like the core game itself, was full of ups and downs. But no matter what you think about the game that launched in September of 2014, it’s impossible to deny that Bungie’s phenomenon of a shooter has grown and improved over the past 12 months. It’s fitting, then, that Destiny’s year two kicks off with a massive DLC pack called The Taken King, as it’s easily the game’s crowning achievement to date.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Review: Phantom Pain, Real Opus
The tale of Big Boss has engaged players for over 28 years. From the original Metal Gear’s 8-bit beginnings, to the recently released Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Big Boss has been the catalyst that set into motion the events that unfolded before us. Sometimes his presence was only in the periphery, a ghost of events long past resonating into the present. Sometimes we played as him, sharing in his triumph and heartache.
Mad Max Review: Shiny And Chrome
The Mad Max franchise delivers one of the more grim what-ifs of a potential post-apocalyptic world. Never is there the promise of government restoration, peaceful co-existence between the forsaken surviving populace, or even just a respite from the hardships of life. Instead, the Mad Max films have painted a picture of the savagery and brutality inherent in the hearts of men who have to fight each day for their lives.
The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter Review: The Power Of Imagination
Imagination is a powerful thing and, for the titular child at the heart of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, it serves as both a blessing and a curse. Ethan's imagination provides him with freedom while simultaneously alienating him from his own family. It’s an unspeakable horror that holds him captive as well as a hero intent on rescuing him. It provides both salvation and damnation and, for the player, it serves as the foundation for one hell of a narrative journey.
Godzilla Review: The King Of All Mediocrity
Godzilla is the kind of property that seems like it would transition perfectly into video games. You've got giant monsters, military forces storming the scene, buildings in need of smashing and more. Unfortunately, the king of all monsters will have to keep defending his title on the silver screen, because his latest console outing has proven to be another major letdown.
Zen Pinball Ant-Man Review: Big On Fun
With Marvel’s Ant-Man set to hit the silver screen this weekend, you better believe that Zen Pinball 2/Pinball FX2 has a brand new table themed after the pint-sized hero ready to roll on pretty much every platform known to man.
PlanetSide 2 PS4 Review: Massive Warfare Comes To Consoles
In PlanetSide 2, players take on the role of a single cog in a massive, complex war machine. And once you put in the time to become familiar with all of those various machinations and understand how they make that engine run, you’re rewarded with an exciting, genuinely satisfying shooting experience.
J-Stars Victory VS+ Review: Celebrating 45 Years Of Shonen Jump
Who would win in a fight, Goku or Naruto? For fans of manga and anime, these are the kinds of conversations that pop up on a regular basis, usually destined to reside forever in the realm of speculation. Now, thanks to the recent launch of J-Stars Victory VS + for PlayStation platforms, the answers to those “what if” scenarios can finally be explored.
