The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

Is there anything in gaming that feels more exhilarating than web-swinging through the streets of New York as Spider-Man? It doesn’t really matter how many times it’s been done before, it just never gets old. In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, you take control of the webslinger in his efforts to stop a gang war led by Electro and his team of supervillains, including the Green Goblin, Venom, and Kraven the Hunter.

As a sports fan, there’s nothing worse to witness than your favorite team’s ownership make move after baffling move. We’ve all been there. You see a bad trade or free agent signing, then start thinking of the moves you could make and how glorious it would be to win it all, all due to your inspired decision making.  (more…)

R.B.I. Baseball 14 Review

The original RBI Baseball is a classic. It was simple, quick, and used real Major League Baseball players from eight different teams. Despite not having official backing from the MLB to use official team names and logos, teams were listed by city. However, if you knew anything about baseball, you knew what team you chose even without the logos and team names, and that was just fine. (more…)

Monument Valley Review

If you blended the MC Escher-esque visuals of the PSN title Echochrome with the gameplay of FEZ, Monument Valley would most likely be the end result. From the moment you’re dropped into the world and start exploring, you know you’ve discovered something special.  (more…)

In Fear I Trust Review

In Fear I Trust puts you in the role of someone who wakes up in a mysterious facility with no recollection of how they got there. By exploring the environment around you, the reasoning behind why you’re there and what happened to you start becoming more apparent. If the storyline sounds a bit familiar, you’ve probably played a game just like this before. (more…)

Shadow Blade Review

It’s not exactly controversial to say that platformers generally aren’t the best types of games to play on touchscreen devices. Shadow Blade isn’t your average platformer. The game itself isn’t anything all that different from what you might have played before, but the controls feel so natural that you may find yourself falling into a Zen-like state when you’re playing.

Joe Danger Infinity Review

Joe Danger is a tough game to put down. The levels are just long enough where you’ll keep saying, “I’ll just play this one, and then I’m done.” It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s really all you could ask for in a game you either play for a minute, or for hours. (more…)

Space Hulk Review

Space Hulk is the digital version of the classic Warhammer 40k board game of the same name. In the campaign, you take control of a squad of Space Marine Terminators as they start mounting an assault on the Tyranid Genestealers, who have managed to infest the abandoned Space Hulk. It’s a turn-based strategy game, so if you’ve played games like Shining Force, or Final Fantasy Tactics, you’ll have a pretty good idea as to what to expect. You take a turn, then the enemy takes a turn, action ensues (albeit slowly). (more…)

Clumsy Ninja Review

I didn’t expect to enjoy Clumsy Ninja. I never understood the appeal of into virtual being simulators like Nintendogs, and Clumsy Ninja didn’t seem all that different. And then I started playing it, and Clumsy Ninja changed the way I think about these types of games. Most importantly, I’m having a really fun time with it. (more…)

The King of Fighters ’97 Review

The ‘90s was when the fighting game craze was at its peak. You had Capcom’s Street Fighter II and Midway’s Mortal Kombat leading the charge, not only at arcades across the country, but these franchises also had remarkable ports created for the home consoles as well. SNK was another company that threw its hat into the fighting game arena, and had some respectable franchises as well. (more…)
