Review of Lumines: Electronic Symphony

4 out of 5 Electronic Symphony doesn't rebuild the concept of Lumines block-by-block, but this Vita launch game is still the most fun I've had with the franchise since it debuted on the PSP back in 2004. What makes this game different than the handful of additional versions that came between now and then? Mechanically, ... Read More»

Review of Vita Version

5 out of 5 In my original review of the console versions of Rayman: Origins, I all but called it out as one of the best platformers ever made, and I feel even more strongly about that sentiment now than I even did then. As a 2D reboot of the classically 3D Rayman franchise, Origins ... Read More»

Grand Slam Tennis 2 Review

Those who played the first Grand Slam Tennis title on the Wii in 2009 will realize how starkly different the latest entry in EA Sports’ tennis franchise is. While the former was more about arcady, cartoony fun, Grand Slam Tennis 2 follows suite with FIFA and Madden, EA Sports’ two main franchises, and takes a ... Read More»

Haunt Review

Haunt is an interesting game, using Kinect controls and developed exclusively for the Xbox 360. Sometimes it feels like these are the only sort of games Microsoft is willing to fund right now. So, right, Haunt. What’s it about? As the name suggests, it’s a spooky game which requires you get out of a haunted ... Read More»

Kinect Sports 2: Season 2 – Midnight Mountain DLC Review

I reviewed Kinect Sports 2 a few months ago, which you can check out over here, and the most remarkable thing about the game was that, it was actually a downgrade over the first one. Now Microsoft has bolstered the content of this game by releasing three new maps, bringing the total to six. The ... Read More»

Gears of War: Fenix Rising Review

Epic Games has been providing plenty of support for Gears of War after it came out last year. While the quality of the content is very good, it has to be mentioned it doesn’t come cheap. Of course, you could get the season pack, but still I feel it alienated the fan base. More so, when ... Read More»

NeverDead review round up shows mixed results

Critics haven’t credited Konami’s NeverDead with the immortality the title suggests. Despite a strong grouping in the region of seven, enough threes and fours are in the mix to make things unpleasant for UK developer Rebellion. NeverDead currently holds a Metacritic average of 51 on PlayStation 3, and 59 on Xbox 360. The hack-and-slash title ... Read More»

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review

The last three books/last four movies (depending on where you stand) of Harry Potter are really dark movies with bleak narratives, something that is not suited at all to a LEGO game.
