    With the Xbox 360 in its twilight years, the franchise that built the house of Xbox has returned one last time this generation with its iconic hero back at the helm. It's been five years since we've last seen Master Chief and Cortana after Halo 3's post-credits stinger cliffhanger that left their fates up in the air (literally). With Bungie's last Halo game not involving the Chief o... Read More »

    Admittedly, I was pretty hard on Resident Evil 5 in my review three years ago that was almost more of a rant than a review. Being a fan of the series since the very first game, I had high expectations after Resident Evil 4, and the next-gen sequel was sadly a train wreck of dated gameplay mechanics and a story that seemed to be straying even further away from the classic Resident Ev...

    After three title changes, the game that simply wouldn’t play dead is finally here. First developed as an original IP, then announced as the third installment in the True Crime series to help sell more copies, True Crime: Hong Kong would eventually be cancelled by Activision after numerous issues with its development. Rescuing the game from being put down for good, Square Enix has... Read More »

    Like the series of films, the Transformers game franchise has seen its share of ups and downs over the past few years. After a string of terrible low budget movie tie-in games, High Moon Studios delivered one of the most enjoyable games of 2010 with their breakout hit War for Cybertron. Their transformation of the gaming franchise seemed to be on the right path until their follow-up... Read More »

    With the company falling on hard times due to financial problems, it’s safe to say that THQ and their development studio Vigil Games have a lot riding on the success of Darksiders II. The sequel to 2010’s breakout hit is far bigger than the original with a new lead character and a vast amount of improvements -- but is the second coming of the Horsemen enough to keep the struggli...

    After just getting through Inversion last week, which was a decent Gears of War copycat that will be almost completely forgotten by everyone who played it in a couple years, I wasn’t dying to play another third-person shooter this month. Spec Ops: The Line aims at Gears of War-style gameplay in a modern war environment like Call of Duty but never crosses over into knockoff territo... Read More »

    Yet another take on the popular Gears of War franchise from a Japanese publisher, Inversion is a Gears of War copycat on a tight budget with an interesting gimmick. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and developer Saber Interactive, who were behind the surprise hit TimeShift early on this console generation and more recently Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, have ...

    Taking over one of gaming’s most well known franchises and moving away from the open world genre that they made the standard in the industry many years ago, Rockstar has proven once again that they’re one of the best in the world at what they do. With no open world, no story-driven player decisions, and no revolutionary L.A. Noire facial animations, Rockstar has released the thi... Read More »

    The product of 1995’s singleplayer-only Warhawk on the original PlayStation and 2007’s multiplayer-only Warhawk on the PlayStation 3, Starhawk has undergone many transformations over the years. Like the legendary tale of the phoenix, the Hawk series hasn’t made many appearances since its debut and like the development studio behind the series and the Hawks themselves, Starhawk...

    Like Hollywood, the gaming industry has a trend of releasing similar competing games around the same time. One of the most recent and biggest gaming showdowns after Call of Duty and Battlefield is the epic battle between Prototype and Infamous -- both good games, both involving superheroes in open-world cities, and both debuting in the summer of 2009. Although Infamous seemed to be ... Read More »

    With Resident Evil 5 failing to improve upon anything from Resident Evil 4 and the Dead Space series perfecting the survival horror genre, Capcom needed to make some improvements to the Resident Evil series to win back some of their fans. In a move that nobody saw coming, the developers behind almost completely killing the SOCOM series before Zipper somehow made it even worse, Slant... Read More »

    Promising the sun, moon, and stars in the form of a game featuring a fully alive universe with a story driven by the choices of a player, BioWare's original Mass Effect seemed like an idea that could no way would live up to the hype. But after its amazing debut in 2007 and even better sequel in 2010, nobody was left questioning what BioWare could achieve in their Mass Effect games. ... Read More »

    With yearly installments to slower-paced modern day shooters, it’s a damn shame that the once dominant arena twitch shooter genre is now becoming extinct. Being a huge fan of both Unreal Tournament and Quake, like many others I've been dying for a new fast-paced futuristic shooter ever since playing 2008's Unreal Tournament III to death with friends on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Enter ... Read More »

    It’s been a while since the riders of SSX have seen fresh powder. Not counting 2007’s Wii exclusive, the latest in the series, simply titled SSX (formerly SSX: Deadly Descents), is the first real sequel to debut on current generation consoles after EA Sports’ BIG line of games ceased production. Now with a revival of over-the-top sports games, Electronic Arts has brought the b... Read More »

    Yet another classic franchise that's jumping genres and switching into the first person perspective is Syndicate, a futuristic cyber-punk FPS that's being revived after almost two full decades since the original was released as a real-time tactical game. Now the same studio behind breakout hits like The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena and The Darkness, Starbreeze Studi... Read More »

    It's been over a decade since we've last seen Sweet Tooth and the rest of the Twisted gang on a major console. After releasing one of the best and most mature games on the PlayStation 2, the Eat Sleep Play team behind the best games of the Twisted franchise has finally returned, and they're serving up a sequel with everyone's favorite killer clown taking the spotlight.
