Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Review – The Pirate Adventure True To Legend Only For Next-Gen

The rustles rise beneath while the sea splash slowly rises, giving room to the protruding smell of fish and the wafts of seabreeze air against the half-open nostrils of Edward Kenway, the most ruthless assassin first and pirate second of the early 18th century. The gameplay covers many elements in the beautiful vistas of the jungles and desolate island shrubbery scattered across the world, with eq...[Read More]

Batman: Arkham Origins Review – The Carbon Dark Knight Of Arkham City

A winged dark-robed figure approaches a thug at night and swoops down and rampages him to the ground. This is Batman: Arkham Origins, crafted by Warner Bros. Montreal, which takes The Dark Knight to a familiar territory of gameplay and invigorates it with a brand new larger environment and multiplayer predator mode. Batman: Arkham Origins sticks very closely to the old formula that its predecessor...[Read More]

Beyond: Two Souls Review – Beyond Garbage

Beyond: Two Souls has to be the cleverest and most cinematic pieces we have ever played, but one that resembles a beautiful expensive candy wrapper inside of a trashcan, muddled with stains of things best left untasted and forgotten. The journey is disappointing and fails to have any gameplay value for most players, other than mere button-pressing excitement similar to Heavy Rain, but with even le...[Read More]

NBA 2K14 Review: 2K13 Without Jay-Z’s Horrible Contribution, And All Of The Mediocrity

NBA 2K14 does very little to earn its money other than updating rosters to August 3rd, 2013 and adding some minor improvements over NBA 2K13, all of which insurmountably accounts to very little. 2K Sports have quite possibly outdone their previous installment’s mediocrity in this new title and created a basketball game that has essentially convinced a gullible audience to keep shelving out m...[Read More]

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Review – Misses The Shot

Sam Fisher is reborn in Splinter Cell: Blacklist – invigorating a new birth to the stealth franchise. The action is rampant, the dialogue and scenery are at a high, and the game mechanics remain nostalgic to the fun of pre-Conviction days. While the action is certainly up on a high scale in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the elements of the Blacklist threat in terms of the mission structure remains loo...[Read More]

The Last of Us Review: The Pandemic Is Morbidly Beautiful

Pandemic has swept the lands of the United States. People are killing each other for what limited resources remain. There is no gaming generation; there are only the grim realities of the world struck by the outbreak of a spore-like virus which has devastated countless victims.  The Last of Us is Naughty Dog’s introduction into the survival genre where the stakes and limits of human perseverance a...[Read More]

BioShock Infinite Ultimate Songbird Edition Review: Ascending To The Clouds

The clouds are piercing the morning air with their incandescent colors, as my lungs fill up with the sweet rubescent scent of the morning air over Columbia’s horizon. This is BioShock Infinite, a title which brings a fantastical world alive in the sky similar to Laputa: Castle In The Sky. BioShock Infinite shatters a new ground-breaking reality in terms of storyline atmosphere that is remini...[Read More]

Injustice: Gods Among Us Review – Where Is The Kryptonite When You Need It?

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a decent fighting title from WB Games and NetherRealm Studios, but largely fails to hold much value in terms of storyline pacing. In terms of fighting mechanics, Injustice: Gods Among Us presents some environmental elements which are unique, but largely a gameplay structure which lacks a lot of originality. Injustice: Gods Among Us feels more like a let down from the Go...[Read More]

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review – Raiden Cuts A Little Too Deep

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes a different spin on the Metal Gear franchise by making a decided move away from stealth that is welcoming. While nostalgic fans of the franchise may be looking for the stealth crouching shadow-kills from Metal Gear Solid 4: Sons of the Patriots, Raiden keeps a decidedly new persona of ruthless vengeance as the title implies. Action combat is fierce, and while t...[Read More]
