Game Review: State of Decay

Game Review: State of Decay

State of Decay launched on Xbox 360 Arcade & for Windows, this downloadable single player game is available at a sum of 1600 Microsoft Points. Yes this is another zombie based title that’s swirling around the video game market, after journeying into the open World with cautious optimism I have come to absolutely adore what State of Decay is all about. After viewing the trailer my heart filled with dubious expectations, I am happy to report this release sinks its terrifying claws right into you and serves as an exceptional product to add into any survival horror fans collection!...

Game Review: Anomaly 2

Game Review: Anomaly 2

               When Anomaly: Warzone Earth was released back around 2011 for the PC, and shortly after, released for the PS3 and Xbox 360, I had an opportunity to review it. In short, the title received nothing less than a 4/5, and many other reviews agreed with me, giving it nearly the same score if not higher. The reason for this is quite obvious- the game was very intuitive, had gorgeous visuals, and it was coupled with very addictive gameplay mechanics. It even came with a survival mode that didn’t remove any sort of entertainment... Read On

Game Review: Mars: War Logs

Game Review: Mars: War Logs

Indie games are constantly criticized and compared to higher budget titles mercilessly. Mars: War Logs is the best example of this sort of scenario. It does an amazing job in demonstrating that it has the potential to do something great-even against titles with bigger budgets. War Logs immerses players as Roy Temperance; a soldier who was captured and sent to a POW (prisoner of war) camp during the war between two large water companies on Mars known as Abundance and Aurora. Shortly after, another soldier known as Innocence arrives, having been captured and brutalized by his fellow inmates, Roy believes that it is the... Read On

Game Review: Tomb Raider

Game Review: Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider is a very iconic franchise and it’s been quite some time since Lara Croft had a great game. Crystal Dynamics tackled the challenge of brining Lady Croft to both new and old fans in this refreshing reboot with great gameplay that helps tell a great story, showing that there is still plenty of life left in Lara Croft. Lara Croft is already a well established character. But rather than just churn out another Tomb Raider that has any ties to the previous games, they chose to start fresh and reboot the franchise starting with a retelling of... Read On

Game Review: Awesomenauts

Game Review: Awesomenauts

Tower defense is a funny thing- it becomes a lot more fun when it goes back to its multiplayer roots as the 2D MOBA, Awesomenauts, proves with style and humour. The game’s intro is excellent and sums up, in cheesy, glorious Saturday-morning-cartoon style the origin of the Awesomenauts, which then segues into the game’s tutorial. To be honest, I felt a bit disappointed that the game didn’t feature any actual campaign besides the neat bit of story in the intro and tutorial- not that most MOBAs feature any sort of campaign to begin with, but it feels like there was a missed...

Game Review: Gemini Wars

Game Review: Gemini Wars

Deep down, Gemini Wars is a very solid and action packed RTS title. When Camel 101 released it on June 8, 2012, the title was full of bugs and corrupted game files, that would stop the game from running, or just stop players from continuing in general, which made the game nearly impossible to continue playing. In time, however, Camel 101 expressed their concern by providing patches that fixed up a great deal of problems. Gemini Wars overall provides three modes for the player. There’s the single player campaign mode that comes with about 15 missions, a skirmish mode, and... Read On

Game Review: Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller

Game Review: Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller

Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller is a very strange title indeed. Phoenix Online Studios seem to strictly focus on graphics and audio, but strangely enough the title has far more potential in terms of story and gameplay. Players take on the role of Erica Reed, an FBI agent. After the death of her brother by a serial killer known as the Cain Killer, Erica stops at nothing to discover the killer’s whereabouts and stop him once and for all. Episode one introduces Erica and her occupational job as an FBI agent. It does a good job at showing the kinder side... Read On

Game Review: Skylanders Giants

Game Review: Skylanders Giants

When I first heard about Skylanders, I honestly didn’t have very high expectations- a game centered around physical toys sounded a bit gimmicky- sure, having physical toys that actually incorporate themselves into the game sounds cool, but honestly, how good can the game be? When I played Skylanders: Spyo’s Adventure last year, I was pleasantly surprised- the addition of toys didn’t feel tacked on, but was really a well-integrated part of the game. Walking into the game’s sequel, Skylanders Giants, I was once again impressed, for this game had managed to improve upon its predecessor. First, a bit of... Read On

Game Review: The Adventures of Shuggy

Game Review: The Adventures of Shuggy

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, simple gameplay is often times the most fun. Keeping a game simple can go a long way. First of all, you don’t have to remember a ton of buttons. Now don’t get me wrong I love current gen games, but sometimes I can feel a bit overwhelmed, especially during  times like this when multiple games are released in such a short window. So it’s refreshing to play a game that is simple to play and a lot of fun. But make no mistake, Adventures of Shuggy make look like a... Read On

Game Review: Cortex Command

Game Review: Cortex Command

I’ve always had a thing for strategy games, and I’ve always had a thing for platformers, but never did I imagine that they could collide- and never quite so beautifully as in Cortex Command. As you may have surmised, the game centers around brains in jars… Alright, you might not have guessed that one (Cortex didn’t tip you off?), but getting back on track, these brains colonize worlds, controlling robots that mine for gold and defend them from other invading robots. Gold that is mined can be used to purchase more robots, weapons, and other handy things. Gameplay takes place... Read On

Game Revew: Tiny Troopers

Game Revew: Tiny Troopers

Using miniature marines have never been as tedious as it is in Iceberg’s Interactive latest title known as Tiny Troopers. Originally, Tiny Troopers was made for the iOS and Mac, however, it was later moved to Steam on August 24, 2012, and it is a title that favors average gamers who want entertainment for an hour or so without indulging too much time into mechanics and all that other nonsense. Tiny Troopers starts out without a background story, and no other sense of detail as to who the player is, or why the player is fighting. It is strictly implied that... Read On

Game Review: Desert Stormfront

Game Review: Desert Stormfront

As of late, I’ve been a little disappointed with Android as a gaming platform. It’s not held back by much, in my opinion, except perception (not to mention a terrible marketplace). If things were a little better organized on the Android Market (particularly in the games department), great games wouldn’t get buried underneath shovelware. One game that’s gotten buried was Tropical Stormfront, an excellent RTS from Noble Master Games- give it a shot if you haven’t already. Right now, there’s a sequel to Tropical Stormfront and its name is Desert Stormfront- it improves on the original in a great... Read On

Game Review: Chester

Game Review: Chester

    Indie games are normally known and seen as games that raise the bar in video game creativity. Brilliant Blue-G’s latest title, Chester, a game that could have been downloaded on Indie Game Stand for free is the title that most if not all indie developers should look to as a role model in terms of creativity. The title is a platformer that mixes not only strategy, but also RPG elements and cartoonish art design.     You play as Chester, a sort of monster-looking fellow who is adventuring through levels without any reason as to why. There is no sort... Read On

Game Review : Gateways

Game Review : Gateways

What do you get when you combine the complex level design of Metroid with Portal’s critical thinking? Simply enough, a decent indie game.Gateways is, in spirit and gameplay, the child of these two stupendous titles, and without a doubt, Smudged Cat Games have taken a fair amount of creativity from both titles to create this one. You play as Ed, a brilliant scientist who happens to be locked in his own lab by a mysterious individual.  As you explore the lab, Ed realizes that the gateway guns (of his own invention) are scattered throughout the laboratory, and must find them to escape. Sadly,... Read On

Game Review: Darksiders 2

Game Review: Darksiders 2

Darksiders was a great game. Not only did it have a good story going for it, the gameplay was a nice blend of hack n’ slash and dungeon exploring much like the Legend of Zelda series. Of course as with most sequels, Darksiders 2 aims to be a bigger game in scope. However bigger does not always mean better and Darksiders 2’s attempt at being bigger hurts it in more ways than one. The story in Darksiders 2 does not pick up after the events of the first game which is odd for a sequel. Instead it tells the... Read On

Game Review: Starvoid

Game Review: Starvoid

Starvoid is one of the latest real-time strategy title published by Paradox Interactive, and developed by Zeal Game Studios on August 30th. The game is a heavily focused multiplayer experience, which in turns abandons the single player campaign. However, the developers promised in exchange a very quick and intense multiplayer experience. To be frank, the main question still remains? Does Starvoid, a heavy multiplayer game have what it takes to challenge other titles like Tryst, or will it be left in the dust? Being a multiplayer heavy experience, the game works somewhat the opposite; it plays as quick as... Read On

Game Review: Miner Wars Arena

Game Review: Miner Wars Arena

I’ve been keeping an eye on the Miner Wars franchise for quite some while. I’m waiting for the main attraction, Miner Wars 2081, and not too long ago, I stumbled upon a little pre-release spinoff game called Miner Wars Arena. Miner Wars Arena is a top-down arena-based vehicular combat game that allows you to dig through right through the arena that you’re fighting in. Gameplay is pretty easy to get a hand on. Piloting your little death machine/mining vehicle, you dig around the arena looking for powerups hidden in the rocks, all the while trying not to get blown up by... Read On

Game Review: The Bluecoats – North Vs. South

Depending on how long you’ve been gaming, you might or might not have heard of a little turn-based strategy gem called North vs. South, a great game that barely got the attention it deserved when it came out decades ago to now-ancient computers. The game has been re-released upon the world, and remade as The Bluecoats – North vs. South (though for convenience, it’ll just be referred to as NvS). NvS is a remake for PC, iOS that successfully blends turn-based strategy, arcade action and third-person cover-based shooting. Wait, what? This sounds impossible- but NvS pulls it off with finesse. Starting with gameplay, you spend... Read On

Game Review: A Virus Named Tom

http://youtu.be/rFNPOOGhjzk Have you ever recognized an Indie game from just looking at it? Well, I sure have, mostly because they either have no voice acting, terrible graphics, or are just plain insipid. A Virus Named Tom is however completely the opposite. The game was developed by the Indie team called Misfit Addict on August 1, 2012. This game is simply superb, and nothing less then what most Indie game titles should be compared to today. It combines the art-work with its fast paced quick thinking gameplay, and incredible voice acting, along with its upbeat soundtrack to make this title... Read On
