Battlefield 1 Multiplayer Review – DICE’s Gamble To Return To The Past Pays Off Reviews 19

Reviews 19 There’s no doubt about it. Today’s triple-A shooters are growing stale as developers more often than not rely on two periods of time to set their games in, be it the modern era or the future war. As of the mid-2000’s, whether it’s Call of Duty or Halo, if you’ve played one game, you’ve played […]

Overwatch Review – Blizzard’s New IP Delivers a Polished FPS Experience For Everyone Reviews 11

Reviews 11 It’s been 17 long years since Blizzard pumped out anything wasn’t related in some way to one of its big three IPs: Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo. Though all three will go down in history as some of gaming’s most iconic and beloved video game series ever, fans are now welcoming a new member to the Blizzard family. […]

Tom Clancy’s The Division – Review Reviews 5

Reviews 5 Ever wonder what you’d get if you mixed the writing of Tom Clancy with a loot-driven RPG-shooter that takes place in a lawless cityscape amidst a severe crisis? Tom Clancy’s The Division is just that: an RPG-driven military shooter from Massive Entertainment that tasks you with restoring order in mid-town Manhattan after a devastating event wipes out the majority of […]

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 – Multiplayer Review Reviews 6

Reviews 6 It’s been two years since the release of PopCap’s colorful and easy-going third-person shooter, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. While the spin-off was a commendable first entry into the world of shooters, it had a few short comings, including a lack of content outside of its multiplayer and Garden Ops modes. Despite that, Garden Warfare was the […]

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, […]

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, […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Zomboss Down DLC Review Reviews 3

Reviews 3 Following up on last month’s impressive DLC offerings, what could PopCap HD do to top their previous work and keep Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare wacky and interesting? Two words: Zomboss Down — a massive Wild Wild West-themed content pack. The free add-on features tons of content ranging from new Western-inspired character variants like the […]

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Garden Variety DLC Review Reviews 8

Reviews 8 Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is already dubbed one of the weirdest shooters out there. So how exactly is PopCap HD going top the experience with its latest DLC offering? It’s simple, actually: Launch new content for free. Upon downloading the parody-filled mandatory Garden Variety update, you’ll be greeted with a seriously overwhelming amount of new […]

Borderlands 2 – Mad Moxxi And The Wedding Day Massacre DLC Review Reviews 2

Reviews 2 With Valentine’s Day soon upon us, Borderlands 2 developer Gearbox has decided to show their loyal vault hunters across all platforms some love in a Valentine’s Day themed add-on, Mad Moxxi And The Wedding Day Massacre. Although themed on a holiday based on love, the DLC is quite the opposite, as per the usual Borderlands […]

Battlefield 4 Multiplayer Review – A “Levolution” In FPS Gaming, Or Just Battlefield 3.5? Reviews 78

Reviews 78 Stockholm-based video game developers Digital Illusion Creative Entertainment must have known they were in for a bit of a tough time when they set out to follow up 2011’s Battlefield 3 with a direct and proper sequel, rather than a series of experimental spin-offs which the studio’s history indicated might have been the case. With […]

Diablo 3 Console Review – Legendary Loot Galore Reviews 22

Reviews 22 Finally, the moment that many of us dungeon crawler fanatics have been waiting for. Diablo 3, the fastest selling PC game of 2012 is now available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms.
