Crysis 3 Review

March 14, 2013 // 6 Comments

“The hunted becomes the hunter in the CryEngine-powered open-world shooter Crysis 3. Players take on the role of ‘Prophet’ as he returns to New York in the year in 2047, only to discover that the city has been encased in a Nanodome created by the corrupt Cell Corporation. The New York City Liberty Dome is a veritable urban rainforest [...]

Tomb Raider Review

March 12, 2013 // 3 Comments

In many years I could sign off on this game as “Game Of The Year” outright. It’s that good. In a year like 2013 is shaping up to be and the fact that this game came out early enough in it, the jury is still out. I can guarantee that by the end of the year this game will be still on many people’s GOTY shortlists, including [...]

Dead Space 3 Review

February 19, 2013 // 0 Comments

The third and final installment in the Dead Space game series, or at least as far as Isaac Clarke’s story arc goes, is upon us and it doesn’t disappoint. I’ll say upfront: If you’re a fan of this series you’ll be very happy with this game and if you never cared about the series there’s nothing here for you. For [...]

Hitman Absolution Review

December 4, 2012 // 2 Comments

I’m a long time Hitman fanboy. I view Blood Money as the apex of the series and that hasn’t changed with the advent of this game. Just to get that out of the way. At least once a year I have to fire up at least Blood Money for a jaunt and often times Contracts and Silent Assassin as well. The games are permanent residents on my hard [...]

Dishonored (PC) Review

October 10, 2012 // 5 Comments

Arkane Studios consists of veterans from the Deus Ex series, Half life series, Thief games and has been 3 years in the making and I’m happy to report the wait was well worth it. It would have been huge shock and arguably one of the biggest letdowns in gaming in years had it not been given the pedigree of the talent that created this game. [...]

Borderlands 2 (PC) Review

September 20, 2012 // 8 Comments

For the Borderlands fan in a hurry: Yes, it’s everything you hoped it would be and then some. Everything you loved about part 1 taken to the next level. Buy it immediately. Thanks for reading! There. That would be enough for me personally and I knew this was going to be the case in the months leading up to release but I had to come up for [...]

Sniper Elite V2 Review

May 15, 2012 // 6 Comments

This is the anti Call of Duty/Battlefield game. It’s also technically a third person shooter except for when sniping, which is what the bulk of the gameplay involves. If you’re itching for something completely different, and arguably the opposite of those types of first person shooters, then I can wholeheartedly recommend Sniper Elite [...]

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review

September 15, 2011 // 5 Comments

I’m reviewing the PC version of this game but make no mistake: You get a high quality experience on whichever platform you can get this one and you should as soon as possible. Upfront I will say that you should prepare to play the best game you’ve played this year thus far at least. If you have the hardware, the PC opens the door up [...]
