The Last of Us Left Behind Review
The Last of Us Left Behind Review
I’m of the opinion that The Last of Us was such a perfect game -- such a perfect experience -- that it didn’t warrant a downloadable content episode. Where we had landed with Joel and Ellie at the end of the narrative felt open-ended and ambiguous, sure, but there was also a sense of finality; we’ve seen these two remarkable people to the end of our road with them. So when I heard that Naughty Dog was releasing a single-player, story-based DLC episode, I raised my eyebrow both skeptically and in confusion. Now, after having played through the handful of hours in The Last of Us: Left Behind, I can say that maybe I was wrong in fearing the worst.
Cut The Rope 2 Review
Cut The Rope 2 Review
Small puzzle games like Cut The Rope 2 challenge the player not just to beat each level, but to achieve the highest score possible. This kind of simple challenge can quickly turn into a monstrous task as you're faced with a number of obstacles preventing you from bringing the tasty sweet treat to Om Nom, along with obtaining enough stars to beat each level. Cut The Rope 2 isn't entirely original i
Gran Turismo 6 Review
Gran Turismo 6 Review
The lord of all racing simulators is back with another edition of their storied franchise that gets gear-head gamers hot under their manifold. Gran Turismo 6 represents the pinnacle of the franchise and it has a lot to live up to. Its predecessor was a gargantuan game beloved by car geeks and racing fans. I had the chance to check under the hood and see if Gran Turismo 6 has enough power and agili
Assassin's Creed Pirates Review
Assassin's Creed Pirates Review
The Assassin's Creed franchise has occasionally run aground. We spent too much time with our Italian friend and the revolutionary era colonies became a drudgery. While not all that revolutionary, Assassin's Creed 3 did introduce us to something new that slaked our thirst from hours of stale and dry gameplay. The naval battles were so brilliant an addition to the series that Black Flag has embraced

Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas Review
It's not unusual for games on the App Store to seem like complete clones of popular console games. While imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, sometimes games just straight up copy the style of a popular title in the hopes that they'll gain the same sort of success as the source material. And while these carbon copies usually try to ape the original's style, they mostly fall flat. But n

The Wolf Among Us - Episode 1 Review
With the success and acclaim Telltale Games had with The Walking Dead, the pressure to follow that episodic adventure up with another hit must have been insurmountable. For that task, Telltale dialed up another comic property, Fables, for the inspiration behind The Wolf Among Us. Though Vertigo's Fables is a popular comic, it doesn't have quite the same rabid (and massive) fanbase as the Walking D

Grand Theft Auto V Review

While the core of this entry is still very familiar, Grand Theft Auto V freshens the aging premise with a new narrative direction and a host of new features designed to redefine the franchise. Though there are s
