Alice: Madness Returns Xbox 360 Review


Over ten years after we visited a twisted imagining of Wonderland in American McGee’s Alice, Alice: Madness Returns takes us back down the rabbit hole for another dark incarnation of Lewis Carrols’ children tale. With its signature dark tone, a great story, and smooth gameplay Madness Returns undoubtedly has potential for greatness. Sadly, that greatness […]

Duke Nukem Forever Xbox 360 Review


There are certain things, as gamers, we’ve become accustomed to in our games: quality gameplay, decent visuals, good mechanics that support whatever style of game we are playing (shooter, platformer, stealth, etc.).

Metro 2033 Xbox 360 Review


I make my way from the frozen surface of what is left of the city of Moscow, and cautiously approach the concrete entrance to what appears to be a Nazi camp. Crouching in the shadows, I reload my bastard Carbine and switch out my dirty bullets for military grade ammo.

Prototype Xbox 360 Review


The short summary is that as a game, Prototype could be compared to a bowl of conversation hearts and mixed with a fun-size pack of yellow Skittles (assuming you don’t like the hearts). Some parts are great, though far and few between with no real strong point, and the rest are either nasty or bland, […]

Assassin’s Creed 2 Xbox 360 Review


The first Assassin’s Creed (AC) still stands as one of, if not the, most polarizing games of the current generation. Some found the game’s shortcomings forgivable in light of the innovations that the parkour mechanics brought to open-world design. Others, such as myself, couldn’t forgive the incessant bugs, glitches, mindless flag collecting and repetitive combat […]

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Xbox 360 Review


Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series has come a long way from its love-it-or-hate-it beginnings, mostly due to 2009’s lauded Assassin’s Creed 2. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood looks to continue the series success, but with a mere 10 month development and the seemingly odd inclusion of a multiplayer component, are the odds stacked against it too great? Well, […]

Michael Jackson: The Experience Xbox 360 Review


Well, he may be gone but his spirit lives on in not only his music, but in his games as well. You may love him or hate him depending on what you believe and what you know about Michael Jackson, but you cannot deny the greatness of his dance moves and the power of his […]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Xbox 360 Review


I must say that I was quite surprised when I really got into the new Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. I had my doubts going into it (I’m sure everyone else did too), what with the lack of good 3D Castlevania games on the market and the not so compelling story the series has a knack […]

Crysis 2 Xbox 360 Review


Are you tired of the same First Person Shooters over and over? Do you also like wearing a cool suit that can turn you invisible? Well, this is the game for you and is a great example of how all first person shooters should be created and played, tons of freedom to roam around in.

Portal 2 Xbox 360 Review


If you don’t know what Portal is, you’ve been living under a rock. If you haven’t yet figured out if the cake is a lie, you shouldn’t consider yourself ready for Portal 2. Seriously, play through it if you haven’t already done so, because each game plays differently. Portal is a unique game that incorporates […]

Borderlands Xbox 360 Review


Gearbox Software has had a lot of experience when it comes to making games. Most notably, they’ve contributed much to the acclaimed Half-Life 2 series, and that really shows through in their original title Borderlands.

Bulletstorm Xbox 360 Review


There’s nothing quite as rewarding as launching your opponent into the air and, as they float there in slow motion, finishing them off with a few rounds of creative, merciless and well placed shots to the head, limbs, balls, and anywhere else you could think of.
