Resident Evil Within. 10

The Evil Within is a wonderful thing. While it unfortunately isn't quite a return to the survival horror of old, it at least makes for a brilliant blending of the then and now. It involves a lot of the hallmarks of the latter day Resident Evil games, while also incorporating the harsh nature and limited supplies of their forebearers.Being lead by famed Japanese developer Shinji Mikami and his newly founded studio of Tango Gameworks, The Evil Within paves a path with its influences firmly placed ...

...Maybe wait for the Wii U version instead. 5

SSB3DS has an attractive cell-shaded look to it, though you can choose to tone it down slightly if you wish.I have never owned a Nintendo Entertainment System, nor its Super variety. What few games I've played that originated on that system have all been emulated elsewhere, and when I mean few I quite literally mean maybe... between 3-5 games. While I also eventually became a proud owner of an N64 and GameCube, my nostalgia for Nintendo has never run especially deep.Yet despite that, the Super S...

*Insert dumb as rocks Barry Burton quote here* 19

If there's one constant throughout all of Resident Evil, it's that Hunters will mess you up real good.The original Resident Evil has certainly seen quite its share of re-releases over the years, some more drastic than others. The 2002 remake I'm sure is the one that most look fondly untowards, and for good reason. Yet despite it being released 4 years after and keeping things centred around the very original, Deadly Silence is still what I consider a standout for the number of improvements and a...

Like in RE5, Mercs 3D allows cooperative play for up to 2-playersThe long-running Mercenaries minigame from the Resident Evil series has always made for an entertaining, score-focussed alternative to the main story. While technically speaking the Mercenaries minigame first originated in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, it was Resident Evil 4's interpretation that has stuck with the series for so long and has now been released as its own stand-alone game.The concept behind releasing a game that is stric...

What a rush. 0

Note to self: never mix cornflakes with cocaine.Set during the end stretch of 80s Miami, Hotline Miami has you take up the role of a nameless, voiceless protagonist, as you smash, cut, cleave, slice shoot, boot, stomp, whack, and generally eviscerate your way through a number of pixel people.The game's premise and much of its overall narrative is intentionally left as somewhat vague, obscure, and maybe even a little obtuse. But it works within the game's themes, and does what only video games ca...

There's plenty of passive skills to unlock & grow, but they rarely amount to much.If you've played one, you've played 'em all, and even if you haven't played one, chances are high that you're well aware of the seemingly never ceasing assembly line of Koei's Warriors games. The latest in the original franchise of this conglomerate, being Dynasty Warriors, continues on the series current-gen trend of amplifying the amount of flash that occurs on screen, and, well... not much else. If anything ...

The Next Great Sequel in The Prototype Series. 2

SRIV offers up the expected degree of customisation--and then some--to create whatver the Hell you want. Oh, Saints Row. Never has been there a series that has taken such ridiculous strides in tone this fast than the Saints Row series. Starting off as little more than something to fill the gap of a (then) next-gen Grand Theft Auto in 2006, it then slowly but surely grew into its own beast, filled with its own brand of surreal and referential humour, and an increasing focus on its 'Just do whatev...

One of the best Resident Evil games in years. 2

It's not quite a return to The World of Survival Horror, but it's... better than Resident Evil 6The once esteemed Resident Evil series has, to put it lightly, been in a bit of a rut lately. 2012 was a year where fans of the series should have been overjoyed to find that there was not one, not two, but three Resident Evil games all released within the one year. Revelations was by far the best of the bunch, though it was unfortunately restricted to the 3DS user-base. Now a year later, so long as y...

Say bye-bye to Locust skins and Hell No to Red vs Blue...I began my time with the famed Gears of War series a little late, sometime during 2009. Though to this day do I wish I could have been there on day one, to marvel alongside everyone else at such a fantastic game and a promising start to a series. I've enjoyed my time with all three prior Gears games immensely, and while I can't deny that I've gotten a significant amount of enjoyment out of its latest release, Gears of War: Judgment, there'...

''F*** This Planet.'' - John Carver, 2013. 3

The times you get to explore in space make for some of the most memorable moments in Dead Space 3.The recurring comparisons between the Dead Space series and the Aliens franchise have fitted perfectly with one another. The original Dead Space, with its slow, plodding pacing packed within some incredible atmosphere, marred successfully with the original Alien movie. Dead Space 2 picked up things, including the pace, and expanded upon the variety and the amount of enemy encounters very much akin t...

Exactly what it says on the tin. 0

''What the fuck just happened?!'' is something I found myself almost routinely exclaiming/shouting/screaming/gurgling during my time playing Anarchy Reigns, the latest brawler from top-quality developer Platinum Games. A sort-of sequel to the Wii-exclusive Mad World, Anarchy Reigns twists the 'franchise' upside down, trading in its single-player focussed, arena combat origins for a multiplayer brawler. Sure, there's a story campaign in here--in fact there's technically two--but that's not the re...

Fare thee well, sweet prince. 0

Oh boy. Where to even begin? I've been a fan of this franchise since the very beginning back in 1996; Resident Evil was my childhood, and the very original just so happened to be one of the first games that I played. I adored this stuff during the 90s and early oughts. However, once came Resident Evil 4, things changed. Now I'm not going to lambaste Resident Evil 4 as some evil mark of damnation--it's a great game by all means--but it's not why I personally came to this series; it's not why I wa...

Quite possibly the best Superman game ever released. 0

Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is arguably the best Lego game thus far. Much like Lego Star Wars III before it with its light RTS mechanics, Lego Batman 2 attempts to diverge somewhat and push forward the formula by greatly expanding its HUB, matching the breadth and size of an actual open-world, and including voiced-dialogue for the cutesy little minifigs.Much like its predecessor, Lego Batman, Lego Batman 2 doesn't follow the narrative of any one particular movie series and instead cooks up it...

An outstanding port, even if the games themselves are less so. 0

Originally released on the PSP, The God of War: Origins Collections attempts to fill in some of the 'gaps' during series leading mass murderer Kratos' arc. But what was no doubt an impressive technical feat on the psp--giving players about what they'd expect from a God of War game just now containable within a pocket--when put against the franchise's console endeavours (including the original HD collection), it all feels a little flat in comparison. Ghost of Sparta most certainly has its moments...

It's fun to hang with the: Y-K-Z-A!Y'know what the Yakuza franchise could do with a little more of? Zombies! And while we're at it, how about we exchange the visceral melee combat with the shooting from Dead Rising! Finally, to top it all off, let's recycle all of Yakuza 3/4's Adventure elements and call it a day.I'm willing to bet that's not actually how the sit down for conceptualising Yakuza Dead Souls played out, but it's certainly how I imagined things after finally putting my time with und...

All reviews lead to Hell. 0

I never had any delusions of Grandeur going in to Slant Six's attempt at creating a Resident Evil game stripped away of all the trappings of survival horror, leaving you with a dry-cut third person shooter set during the events of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. Given their history and the genre, and the way the game was shaping up in all of the trailers, I was certain that it was hardly going to be released to high praise. What I had hoped, however, was that my love for the franchise's lor...

The one ring to rule them all. 0

For what it was, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was near perfect in my honest opinion. It bridged a chasm of platforming, shooting, puzzle and some occasional stealth obstacles, all smoothly fitted and handled like a dream (well, some of the stealth stuff was a little kooky). The storyline wasn't particularly deep, but it had style, flair and a great cast of characters. It's completely subjective, but many would willfully consider Uncharted 2 as one of the greatest games of this current generation.S...

It's like deja vu, but with a price tag. 0

Recycling is great for the environment. It's unfortunate, however, how close to the heart CAPCOM have followed through with this prospect. At this point in their lifespan, CAPCOM are well known--and criticised in some cases--for their liberty to often release at least one ulterior edition for their biggest releases. The results can vary from one extreme end of the spectrum to the other; sometimes these ''Super, Delux, Ultra, Special, Directors Cut, Dualshock'' editions come fitted with a welcome...

One of the most fun and frantic shooters you can find. 0

Sony has been pushing the third chapter of the constant collision between humanity and the Chimeran invaders (though they're now our landlords more than anything) pretty hard since it's official announcement in 2010; playing through the games fantastic single player campaign will show you why.

Ever since Naughty Dog left the building, the Crash Bandicoot series has treaded upon a wobbly line of mixed reviews for all of the later entries. Crash Twinsanity is easily one of the best non-ND Crash Bandicoot games, though it still features a laundry list of issues that pull the brakes on what could have been a solid comeback for the crazed, mullet/mohawk sporting marsupial.A lot of the humour surrounding Cortex is what makes for the best parts of the game.Crash Twinsanity actually breaks aw...

inFAMOUS 2 is a Beast. 0

There's an easy distinction between an open world game, and a sandbox. Open world games primarily use their open world mostly as a setting alone to portray realistic interactions, show off impressive environments and to mostly push the story forward, like Mafia 2, L.A Noire and for a less recent example, Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Sandboxes, on the other hand, are mostly striving to give you a giant playground full of opportunities for mayhem, carnage, destruction and many more terms relating to ma...

Dead Space 2 is broader, bolder and maybe even a little sexier (?!) at that, than its predecessor. It's now completely stripping most of its survival horror instincts for a much more action orientated experience and feel reminiscent as something resembling the Terminator 2 of a trilogy. And yes, there will definitely be a third Dead Space.  Trading off all the originals allure and mystery for incredibly large and loud set pieces was a great effort, though it still didn't quite match just how I f...

Alpha Protocol: The game I hate to hate. 0

Alpha Protocol makes me cry inside. To witness so much wasted potential for this to become one of the greatest games of 2010 and a great mark for other modern shooter RPGs to follow is truly one of this generation's most disheartening tragedies. What founded these tears, specifically, are thanks to how poorly it plays, the astonishingly sub-par graphics, clumsy animations, bugs, glitchs and just the overall coat of crap that reaches across to every corner.Alpha Protocol is an Action/RPG very aki...

A real treat for the fans. 0

Dead Rising 2 is almost as pure as a sequel could get. Very little does it stray from its original's design, both the lauded and hated aspects. For fans of the franchise Dead Rising 2 is a no-brainer purchase and one they'll surely get just as much enjoyment out of as they did from the original, if not more. For newcomers, or people who just weren't able to adjust to Dead Risings strict way to play, it's much more of a risk to take.Chuck Greene: Level 50 Duct Tape AdministerSo, Dead Rising 2 pla...

Dead Rising 2 - Case Zero is a prototype of sorts. It labels itself as a demo, though it hardly matchs the criteria of what a demo gives you - least not in this current timeline of demo's. For starters you'll have to pay to play this demo, but not only are you getting more than your money's worth it's an excellent bonus to it all being of exceptionally high quality and riotously fun for a downloadable game.Note to zombies everywere: Never get in the way of any CAPCOM protagonist with a pickaxe.D...

A serviceable shooter that makes great use of its mature themes. 0

Kane and Lynch: Dead Men is a sloppy and unattractive looking third person shooter. An unattractive and sloppy TPS that fortunately manages to still deliver a well done story with a pair of exceedingly memorable title characters.  Kane and Lynch through and through is a third person shooter. It has a few twists added in such as squad mechanics but overall it plays like many TPS's we've all gone through many a time before hand.

Demon's Souls is so openly split with its reception. Either people despise every single aspect about it, or love all of its innovations and throw- backs to the old school scale of difficulty.  Suffice to say, they;re both valid enough in that yes, the game is unforgivably difficult. But only within the context for this day and age of games. It's as tough as stale bread for sure, but it's far from cheap. If you die, it's more so down to your own impatience, or through a small slip up with how you...
