Gears of War: Judgment

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
22/02/13 09:33:48 - Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
"All in all though, it's a Platinum game...if you're familiar with their work, and are a fan of it, Revengeance won't create an exception to that perception."

5.0/10
Resident Evil 6
02/10/12 08:02:31 - Resident Evil 6

7.5/10
Borderlands 2
30/09/12 10:46:34 - Borderlands 2

Darksiders II
22/08/12 02:16:48 - Darksiders 2
"Darksiders 2 continues to show Vigil's strengths, but it also demonstrates why only making something bigger doesn't necessarily make it better"

Saints Row: The Third
11/11/11 22:56:37 - Saints Row: The Third

5.0/10
Rage
04/10/11 10:52:02 - Rage
"There might be plenty of exceptional art work on display, but playing a game shouldn't only feel like an artist's interactive demo reel."

Gears of War 3
16/09/11 18:28:13 - Gears of War 3
"There are two ways to look at Gears of War 3: it's the best of the series; and, it's not a disappointing ending. "
6.5/10
Dead Island
09/09/11 22:54:18 - Dead Island
"It can be fun for a bit, and the outdoor environments look gorgeous (the recycled human models, not so much), but Dead Island doesn't offer much else."
7.5/10
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
06/09/11 21:32:15 - Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

5.0/10
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon
14/07/11 10:03:59 - Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon
"With nothing to distract you from its single-track design, even its budget status is too weighty. It's a perfect bargain bin timesink, maybe."
9.0/10
Shadows of the Damned
11/07/11 09:45:22 - Shadows of the Damned
"It's mature sexual content (and immature sexual humor) that's woven together with gore-splattered gameplay set to a unique and refreshing sense of style."
6.5/10
Red Faction: Armageddon
06/06/11 09:56:50 - Red Faction: Armageddon
"Armageddon works, and there's at least a functional, mindless romp to be had, but it's not a surprising one worth revisiting or meant to contemplate."
9.0/10
L.A. Noire
25/05/11 22:12:58 - LA Noire
"Though its gameplay is less successful or interesting than its presentation, LA Noire definitely advances the art of digital storytelling. "
7.5/10
Dragon Age 2
11/03/11 20:34:55 - Dragon Age 2
"Without the thoughtful structure and fully realized world like that of Origins, it's one that exists in the hyphenated space of “action-RPG” where the first 5 h"

Fight Night Champion
07/03/11 08:00:20 - Fight Night Champion

Bulletstorm
01/03/11 02:00:29 - Bulletstorm

7.0/10
Test Drive Unlimited 2
22/02/11 21:40:22 - Test Drive Unlimited 2

8.5/10
Call of Duty: Black Ops
18/11/10 02:04:18 - Call of Duty: Black Ops
"Good as it is, let's hope Treyarch or Infinity Ward break the CoD template after this one, crack open the window, and let some good fresh air into the series."
7.0/10
James Bond 007: Blood Stone
09/11/10 23:02:03 - James Bond 007: Blood Stone

7.0/10
Fallout: New Vegas
19/10/10 07:37:34 - Fallout: New Vegas

8.5/10
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
15/10/10 08:41:19 - Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
"Sure, it cribs, borrows, and steals from other games, but in the end, it still moves a classic in a great, new direction."
6.5/10
Dead Rising 2
11/10/10 09:39:31 - Dead Rising 2
"Killing zombies is one thing; killing our downtime with a poorly designed, nonsensical and patchwork game is another. "

13/09/10 22:26:41 - Halo: Reach
"As a Halo game it rivals the nostalgia Combat Evolved instilled in us nearly a decade ago"
7.5/10
Mafia 2
03/09/10 11:11:55 - Mafia II (X360)
"If you're in the mood for a playable story...it's easy to sink a few hours into the follow-up to one of 2002's greatest hits."
8/10
DeathSpank
20/07/10 05:01:09 - DeathSpank
"Like those summer cineplex comedies that get you out of the sweltering heat for a few laugh-filled hours, DeathSpank delivers the goods."

8.0/10
RISK: Factions
09/07/10 00:57:44 - Risk: Factions
"At around ten dollars, Risk: Factions provides a lot of gameplay and another motivation for ditching the tabletop for the console"
4.5/10
Naughty Bear
09/07/10 00:20:55 - Naughty Bear (X360)
"As it stands, Naughty Bear is overpriced and undercooked."

7.0/10
Singularity
