Rainbow Six Siege Is A Diamond In The Rubble – Review Reviews 20

Reviews 20 There’s nothing quite like a Rainbow Six game. Rarely is an action-oriented first-person shooter rooted in real-world combat able to instill a genuine fear for your character’s safety and well-being. Whereas modern shooters throw you a bone with regenerating health, infinite respawns, or a checkpoint every few seconds, Rainbow Six has always managed to make dying a frightening ordeal. […]

Star Wars Battlefront Won’t Bring Balance To The Force, But It Looks Amazing – Review Reviews 32

Reviews 32 Battlefront is back. No, not the 2004 shooter from Pandemic Studios, but a fresh and modern take on one of Star Wars’ most beloved video game series, this time from the reputable studio that brought you shooters like Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4. Through adverts, trailers, and gameplay reveals, the Stockholm-based studio has made its promise to deliver the […]

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Review – A Well-Rounded Shooter With A Lot To Offer Reviews 16

Reviews 16 Call of Duty developer Treyarch is ‘back in black,’ looking to repeat another resonating success with one of gaming’s most animated communities. In 2012, the Santa Monica-based studio surprised us with what was perhaps the boldest step forward for the series since the original Modern Warfare. Black Ops 2 not only brought Call of Duty to new heights, […]

Hands On With The SCUF Infinity1 Controller For Xbox One & Giveaway Contest Details Reviews 12

Reviews 12 Last year, we reviewed Scuf Gaming’s debut professional controller for the Xbox One, praising the SCUF One’s ability to improve aiming and movement capabilities in any first-person or third-person shooter while making the whole gaming experience a lot more comfortable on the hands. Since then, the company has made a number of upgrades to their Xbox One controller model, developing new […]

Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Might Just Be The Series’ Best – Review Reviews 32

Reviews 32 It’s been an uphill battle for 343 Industries, coming off of mixed reception to its debut Halo title on Xbox 360 in 2012 and catching major heat for the messy launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One last year. Now, the Kirkland-based developer is still out to prove that it has what […]

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Multiplayer Review Reviews 4

Reviews 4 For me, booting up Gears of War: Ultimate Edition multiplayer on Xbox One was an unpredictably refreshing experience, despite the age of the original game this current-gen remake by Vancouver-based studio The Coalition is based on. The care and quality that went into the actual remaking of the original might be at the root of it, […]

Product Review – The SCUF 4PS PlayStation 4 Controller Reviews 26

Reviews 26 With PlayStation becoming the new home of Call of Duty eSports and Sony securing early Call of Duty DLC launches starting with Black Ops 3, the temptation for fans of the series on Xbox to jump ship is at an all time high. Falling into this category myself, and as a long-time user of third-party Xbox controllers like the SCUF Hybrid […]

Mortal Kombat X Review – A True Next-Gen Fighter Emerges Reviews 23

Reviews 23 It’s been over 15 long years since the Mortal Kombat franchise was even considered to be at the top of the fighting game genre, during which time the controversial fighter went through some very big changes. In 1997, Midway Chicago did away with the digitized sprites that MK fans have become accustomed in favor of 3D models, […]

Rainbow Six Siege Closed Alpha – Video Review Reviews 12

Reviews 12 There’s a lot to be impressed by in the Rainbow Six Siege Closed Alpha. While it is very much an early Alpha not really fit for public release, it’s still good enough to prove that Siege isn’t just another run of the mill shooter. Everything about Siege’s gameplay is obviously well-intended with good talent and […]

Survarium PvP Beta – Video Review Reviews 4

Reviews 4 Developed by former members of the STALKER series development team, Survarium is the kind of game that aims to please. It’s fun, it’s rewarding, and best of all, it’s free. Normally, I don’t pay much mind to F2P games as their core features are typically either hidden behind a paywall, cheap feeling, or both. Survarium […]

Battlefield Hardline Review – Strong Maps & Modes Are Evidence Of A Worthy Cops & Criminals Shooter Reviews 31

Reviews 31 Visceral Games, a video game developer known for its work on the acclaimed trio of sci-fi, action-horror games in the Dead Space series, isn’t exactly a newcomer to the Battlefield franchise and its dealings with all out, combined arms, modern warfare. You may recall Battlefield 3’s End Game expansion, which was, in fact, handled by the guys and gals […]

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Review – A New Era Or Another Repeat? Reviews 36

Reviews 36 Did you hear? A new Call of Duty developer is in town, and that has a lot of veteran fans of the annual first-person shooter series eager to see what exactly that might mean for this year’s entry. Call of Duty has been primarily built on a two-year development cycle between Activision studios Infinity Ward, […]

Sunset Overdrive Review – Insomniac’s Jump to Microsoft Pays Off Big Reviews 38

Reviews 38 What do you get when you cross mutated monsters, bright colors, vulgar language, and high-speed traversal shooting? You get Insomniac Games’ Xbox One-exclusive debut, Sunset Overdrive, an over-the-top and blindingly fast-paced thrill ride. Touting the catch phrase “Welcome to the Awesomepocalypse” it more than lives up to the billing. It’s a good thing too because […]

NoScope Gaming Glasses Review – Gimmick Or Worth It? Reviews 11

Reviews 11 Gaming glasses have always faced a constant cautious and skeptical attitude from gamers. After all, they just look like normal glasses, but tinted. Not to mention that most pairs cost upwards of $80 – $150, so it’s only natural that gamers would choose to pass up something that still lays unproven. I’ll admit, when I heard […]

Destiny Review – Bungie’s New Universe Shows Promise With Room to Grow Reviews 45

Reviews 45 With a legendary reputation to live up to, iconic Seattle-based video game developer Bungie has a lot riding on Destiny.

Forza Horizon 2 Review – An Eloquent Love Letter to Cars and Car Culture Reviews 4

Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition Review – Definitive Co-Op Action on Consoles Reviews 10

Reviews 10 It’s been 11 long months since the arrival of Blizzard Entertainment’s popular dungeon crawler, Diablo 3, on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 — even longer since it’s initial launch on PC and Mac back in May, 2012. Life in the world of Sanctuary has since begun to grow rather stale. Thankfully, as of August 19th, 2014, those […]

EA Sports UFC Multiplayer Review – How Does This Fighter Fair in the Next-Gen Arena? Reviews 5

Reviews 5 With EA Sports UFC having entered the ring just over a week ago, gamers have had ample time to dive into the online modes and multiplayer experience.
