Fable Anniversary Review (Xbox 360)
Ten years since the release of Fable, Microsoft and Lionhead Studios have returned with a new spin on their now legendary fantasy game. Press releases and trailers promised modernized graphics, achievements and many other upgrades to the original Fable. However, a steep $40 price tag threatened to dampen the excitement emanating from the original denizens of Xbox fan-landia. With the pedigree Lionhead and Microsoft brings to the table, expectations were running high for this redux.
Rekoil: Liberator Review (Xbox 360)
In this day and age, it’s incredibly easy to pick on games like Rekoil: Liberator. Counterstrike knock-offs have been a dime a dozen since Valve’s multiplayer shooter became popular at the turn of the century. There’s no doubting that Rekoil is a Counterstrike wannabe. The key question is: does it do anything advance the gameplay or is it a pathetic money grab?

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures Review
Are you as shocked as I was that someone is still making Pac-Man games? Apparently, Namco still feels there’s a market for the yellow cheese wheel whose best days are behind him. Don’t be fooled by the great old school Pac-Man games that were released on XBLA, PSN, and iOS.

Lost Planet 3 Review
Once considered an important new franchise for next gen hardware, Lost Planet has struggled to keep itself in the public eye through recent years. Since it launched as one of the prettiest early Xbox 360 games, Lost Planet has tumbled from AAA international hit to a forgotten franchise. In fact, Lost Planet had such cache that it was one of a very few titles that was on its way to the silver scre

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Review
The premiere game from this year’s Summer of Arcade, Brothers is a single player co-op puzzle game overflowing with gorgeous graphics and interesting control schemes.
