Badland Review – 9.0

Badland Review – 9.0

Though I never finished Limbo (I’m terrible at puzzles), I loved its unique style. Dark, shadowy figures opposite a white backdrop made for a very interesting look and surely helped it stand out amongst the plethora of colorful games being made at the time. Badland, from developer Frogmind, clearly invokes the brilliant tone that Limbo made famous, creating an equally atmospheric world full of mystery and plagued with disaster. Badland is a simple one-touch, 2D side-scroller where players must navigate [...]

Tiny Wings 2.0 Review – 8.5

Tiny Wings 2.0 Review – 8.5

{Editor’s Note} This is a review of the current version of Tiny Wings (Tiny Wings 2.0) that comes with the Flight School game mode. Though it may be a .99 cent iPhone game, Tiny Wings is no small feat. It’s a one-touch physics/rhythm game that combines soothing music and delightful aesthetics with simple, yet addicting gameplay, creating an experience that’ll keep you busy for hours on end. It’s a hard-knocks life for a bird with tiny wings. Fortunately, the world [...]

Sonic Dash Review – 7.0

Sonic Dash Review – 7.0

No one in gaming can run better than Sonic the Hedgehog. With Sonic Dash, Sega brings the furry guy to mobile platforms in the form of a very competent endless-runner that succeeds in being good, but lacks any real innovation or originality. Gameplay wise, Sonic Dash is your typical endless-runner, but set in the world of Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic can jump to avoid obstacles such spikes or broken pillars, as well as use a roll attack to defeat the [...]

Resident Evil Revelations Review – 7.9

Resident Evil Revelations Review – 7.9

I’ve long been a fan of the Resident Evil series, so when I heard that Resident Evil: Revelations would be a blending of the old school and the new, my interest was piqued once again. After a somewhat brief tenure on the 3DS, Capcom has brought Revelations to the the big screen, debuting in the US on February 7th 2013, which in this Gamer’s opinion, was a step in the right direction. The story of Revelations is set between RE 4 and RE 5 [...]

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review 8.4

The Walking Dead: 400 Days Review 8.4

BEN 234 days in….. Not that we are counting but it has been 234 days since Telltale’s The Walking Dead season one concluded. You might be asking yourself, is 400 Days a DLC or a stand-alone title? Well, the answer is both. Even though the game stands on its own, it does exist in the same universe as the first season. If you pay close attention you can spot a few nods to the first game during 400 Days. Just [...]

Radiant Defense Review – 9.0

Radiant Defense Review – 9.0

Build a maze of weaponry, blast hordes of aliens, and stop the diabolical Super Creep. This is the foundation behind Hexage’s Radiant Defense. With beautiful visuals, colorful characters, and addicting gameplay—Radiant Defense manages to carve out its own space in an over saturated tower defense genre. Radiant Defense grabs you from the start, demonstrating stunning visuals. Hexage has found an excellent way to recreate the blackness of space, permeated by stars and smoke, which never tires on the eyes. The [...]

The Last of Us Review: 9.7

The Last of Us Review: 9.7

It was June 5th, 2013 and the embargo was finally up for media outlets to start releasing their reviews for The Last of Us. This was nine days ahead of its June 14th consumer release date. Everything seemed to be coming together quite nicely for Naughty Dog with their newest title. Popular outlets such as IGN, Giant Bomb and Joystiq were already giving the game perfect scores and GameTrailers.com had given the game its highest review score of the year [...]

Dead Ahead Review: 4.0

Dead Ahead Review: 4.0

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…another zombie game. Dead Ahead, an iOS game developed by Chillingo, is a side-scrolling endless runner set amidst a zombie apocalypse. Zombies are a familiar concept used successfully by many great video games such as Plants vs. Zombies, Resident Evil, and even Call of Duty. Unfortunately, Dead Ahead is not one of them. Full of intrusive ads, inept gameplay, and an all-around boring feel, this game brings nothing new or fun to the table. [...]
