God of War Review

Back in 2010, it seemed like the book was as good as closed on the God of War franchise. Not due to quality issues (that year’s God of War III and Ghost of Sparta were critically acclaimed), but because it seemed that there was no place else to go. Kratos’ quest for revenge had led him on a rampage through the pantheon of Greek gods and culminated with the death of his father Zeus. We ...[Read More]

Far Cry 5 Review

The setting and ideas of Far Cry 5 have a ton of promise that don’t bear much fruit in the final product. There’s probably a great story you could tell around a Christian Doomsday Prepper Cult that has you fighting them off as they prepare for the End Times by murdering everyone around them and stealing all the resources they can. That’s meat that few games even attempt to chew. ...[Read More]

Burnout Paradise Remastered Review

There has been a Burnout-shaped hole in video gaming for the last 10 years. Other games have attempted to fill bits and pieces of that hole with varying degrees of success. You can see a smidge of Burnout in Split/Second‘s huge destruction-focused racing. Forza Horizon‘s open-world collectibles are a strong reminder, too. You can also, of course, see little pieces of it in a few of the...[Read More]

Metal Gear Survive Review

The name on the box attempts to tell you what Metal Gear Survive actually is. That is, it combines elements of Metal Gear with the elements more commonly found in a survival game. The catch is that it doesn’t actually take enough of the right Metal Gear stuff to evoke that long-running franchise in a meaningful way while also layering its style of survival with just enough microtransactions ...[Read More]

Star Wars: Battlefront II Review

When Electronic Arts revived the Star Wars: Battlefront name two years ago, it laid the groundwork for what could have been a successful new take on the series. A new trilogy of films was about to hit theaters and enthusiasm for the brand was at its highest in recent memory. Battlefront’s revival delivered in terms of presentation and fleeting multiplayer fun, but the lack of a substantial p...[Read More]

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Review

At first blush, the premise of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle sounds like a twisted kitbash that would spring out of some bad, late-night message board conversation, only to be written off as “too weird.” “It’ll never happen,” they’d say, as they pivot back to pitching their “Mega Man but with Wrestlers Instead of Robot Masters” idea to anyone who w...[Read More]

Call of Duty: WWII Review

Despite the change in era, this still feels like a Call of Duty game. It’s been a decade, almost to the day, since Call of Duty rewrote the book on multiplayer first-person shooters with the release of Modern Warfare. The game’s fast action and propulsive sense of progression with interesting new gear and unlocks changed it all, and in the years that followed, developers continued to r...[Read More]

Super Mario Odyssey Review

At this year’s E3, Nintendo surprised many with a Super Mario Odyssey trailer that seemed insane even by Mario standards. He inhabited frogs by throwing a ghost hat at them. He strolled through a city alongside human figures with realistic proportions. Pauline from Donkey Kong is suddenly back, and is now a mayor and the lead singer of a swing band. Everything looked set to be Mario’s ...[Read More]

Middle-earth: Shadow of War Review

The best part of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor gets even better in the sequel, Shadow of War. The first game’s dynamic “Nemesis” AI system had you fighting against an endless succession of named enemies who taunted you, remembered your exploits, and grew stronger on the backs of their victories over you. What would have been a competent but forgettable game in the open-world mol...[Read More]

South Park: The Fractured But Whole Review

After over 15 years of bad South Park games, fans of the show were understandably skeptical when The Stick of Truth was released. We had heard about Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s involvement throughout the development process, but we’d been burned too many times to get optimistic. To the surprise of many, it turned out to be a great, lighthearted RPG that served as one of the best uses ...[Read More]

Cuphead Review

Cuphead’s original reveal in an E3 2014 Xbox sizzle reel of indie games was only seconds long, but that was enough to sell me on its potential. Take one look at the game in motion, and you’ll see why. Cuphead combines brutal, precision platforming action with an exceptionally well realized artistic style to create one of the most enjoyable video game experiences I’ve ever had. Cu...[Read More]
