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. [...]

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Review

July 7, 2012 // 4 Comments

At first glance, you may think Brotherhood is nothing more than an expansion pack to Assassin’s Creed II, and actually that doesn’t feel far off. The game does carry that vibe. Brotherhood picks up exactly where Assassin’s Creed II left off, for both Desmond and Ezio, making this a direct sequel where you really need to play the [...]

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Review

November 10, 2011 // 6 Comments

Uncharted 3 was my most anticipated game of the year. It’s been a week since its release, and I have finished the single player campaign twice (Normal and Crushing), and I can safely say that it lived up to my anticipation and expectations. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves set the bar extremely high, and I believe Naughty Dog are right when they say [...]

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Review

May 22, 2011 // 5 Comments

Undead Nightmare really is something special. Priced at $10, or 800 Microsoft Points, on PSN and Xbox LIVE, it’s the kind of DLC that even the most anti-DLC person can get behind. It features additional multiplayer modes, but even more importantly a stand-alone single player campaign that will last you roughly six to eight hours depending on [...]

Mass Effect Review

May 13, 2011 // 3 Comments

What can I say about Mass Effect?  For those that haven’t played it before, it is one of the best gaming experiences you can have.  For those that have played it, it’s still one of the best gaming experiences you can have. Our journey begins as Commander Shephard, or your own custom made character if you choose to go that route, and the crew [...]

Portal 2 Review

May 11, 2011 // 2 Comments

Reviewer’s Note: I am reviewing the Playstation 3 version of the game, which I got after the attack on the Playstation Network. As such, I have been unable to link the game to my Steam account or connect to PSN to play the online co-op. Therefore, this review does not factor any of the Steam features or the online play. This review is purely [...]

Red Dead Redemption Review

April 20, 2011 // 3 Comments

If a film buff asked me to describe The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in one word, that word would be “Epic.” And if you want one word from me that describes Red Dead Redemption, well then it would also be “Epic.” Everything about Red Dead Redemption is as close to perfect as one can get. The story, the gameplay, the open-world, the [...]
