Lollipop Chainsaw review: Might satisfy your sweet tooth, but not your thirst for action

Lollipops and chainsaws don’t usually go well together; one brings up gleeful imageries of cute, childish things, while the other is a tool of destruction, gore and violence (I’ll let you figure out which one is which). This campy combination between the cute and the gory is exactly what makes Lollipop Chainsaw the weird and somewhat unique experience that...

Max Payne 3 review: Fun, sun and painkillers

After nine long years, Max Payne’s journey through the night has finally continued with Max Payne 3, a gritty, wonderfully written third-person shooter starring the world’s most jaded police officer. Yes, Max is back to shooting tons of bad guys using his signature Bullet Time move and dark inner monologue. This time it isn’t Remedy behind the wheel, but...

Yakuza: Dead Souls review: Not every franchise needs more zombies

Zombies. It Looks like the walking dead are everywhere these day - movies, TV series and of course video games. Zombies have become very popular in recent years, and now is the Yakuza series’ turn to join the madness with Yakuza: Dead Souls. This is a serious deviation from the formula of past games in the series, which has always focused...

Total War: Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai review: An expansion of historic proportions

Fall of The Samurai, the latest expansion of Total War: Shogun 2, takes us back to the late feudal period of Japan and presents us with one simple task (well, maybe not that simple) - choose sides in the war for the future of Japan and wipe out the opposition off the island. As befits a great expansion, FoTS...

NeverDead review: Being an immortal isn’t all that grand

It’s not easy being an Immortal in an ever changing world. Being safe from death and old age might be nice for the first hundred years, but watching everything you know and love disappear in the mists of time isn’t a something you can easily live with. If you have any doubt, just ask Bryce – NeverDead’s undying protagonist,...

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations review: Same old awesome game

Ezio Auditore da Firenze, the world’s greatest assassin, is back in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, his third and final game, to conclude his life story. After the events of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Ezio is now older and wiser, and seeks nothing more than to complete the work of his father and find Altair’s hidden library in the ruins of Masayf....

X-Men: Destiny review: Destiny favors the boring

A lot of games these days strive to give the player the element of choice (or at least the illusion of it), be it in an attempt to create an elaborate and deep storyline, or simply for the sake of replay value; X-Men: Destiny, however, grants the player the worst choice of all – a meaningless one. This super-powered...

Rage review: Calm down, it’s not what you think

Id Software is responsible for single-handedly defining the first-person shooter genre, with games like Doom, Wolfenstein and Quake. We all played these games, and regardless of personal taste, most of us can agree that they changed the face of the industry forever. Now, id Software released Rage – their first original IP since 1996, and one of the most...
