Review: SimCity

Written by on May 13, 2013 in


[, , , , , ]

SimCity is one of those classic, time-sucking franchises that egged me on to play for just another five minutes. Of course, another five minutes easily turned into hours and hours. Knowing this as I write up my SimCity review, I openly admit that there are some fond, rose-colored memories attached to my opinions of this… Read More »

There is an absolute glut of quality racing games cluttering our shelves and hard drives nowadays. For gamers this is a really good problem to have. For Motocross Madness it kind of isn’t. There isn’t anything inherently wrong with the game, in fact it’s pretty swell; however, there isn’t anything that really stands out about… Read More »

On the surface, To The Moon by Freebird Games seems like an unassuming indie title that came out in September, 2012 to little fanfare. However beneath the surface lies a real treasure.

Retro City Rampage brings us a little bit of everything that you could imagine in a parody game. On the surface, the game looks like a “fetch quest,” and it is, and it makes fun of that, but beyond the surface there is still a lot to do. The name of the game here is… Read More »

In his newest adventure the titular consulting detective is the archetype for keen observation, deduction and crime-solving in much the same way that Gimli is the first thing to come to mind when someone says the word “dwarf.”  Instead of Middle Earth though, we’re looking at London where Sherlock Holmes is again at his mystery-solving ways….

It’s hard to believe that the Assassin’s Creed series has been around for five years already, but it’s easy to believe that in those five years it has become very popular and well loved.

Review: Jet Set Radio

Reboots. Remakes. Rehashes. Nowadays, they’re not so uncommon. Jet Set Radio falls into the second category on my list: remake, of the HD variety. The funny thing about a remake is that it’s actually an old game. When we’re talking about doing a review, is it really fair to hold a game to current standards… Read More »
