Review: Paranormal Activity 4 sticks to the series' manipulative formula

If you’ve been digging this horror series up until now, you’ll likely enjoy this latest installment despite its lack of evolution.

Review: Just Dance 4 is a fun but familiar two step

If you’re not already a diehard fan of this dancing franchise, this game may not win you over. It’s fun, but it’s hardly incredible.

Review: Skylanders Giants manages to keep the toy craze going strong

The toys! And the new characters! The second Skylanders game manages to deliver more of the same entertainment that the first title introduced last year. (Video review)

Review: iCade Mobile is just not adequate for serious gaming

While it’s certainly decent for the casual crowd, more serious gamers may not find much functionality in this controller option for iOS devices.

Review: Duo Gamer brings near console quality controls to iOS devices, with a catch

Dig Gameloft games? If so, this faux console peripheral will suit your needs. Individuals who want something that plays everything else, however, will be sorely disappointed.

Review: MOGA Controller is a solid effort to bring real controls to a touchscreen device

Portable, functional, and impressive, the MOGA Controller does a great job of giving you a traditional control option for your mobile titles.

Gamers looking for an old school FPS experience with the refinements of a more modern title will totally eat up Sam Stone’s latest outing.

Review: Doom 3: BFG Edition is a hell of a good time

Three great FPS titles, fun online multiplayer, and true shooter spirit make this collection of Doom titles one hell of a set.

Review: Torchlight II delivers a fantastic experience from beginning to end

Offering up an addictive and solid action-RPG experience that isn’t exactly revolutionary but certainly delivers the goods, Torchlight 2 is a worthwhile play for any fan of the genre.

Review: The Walking Dead 'Sick' finds Rick in an unwell place

The latest episode of The Walking Dead presents a more no-nonsense, more twisted Rick, but was this progression too hasty?

Review: The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave doesn't fully live up to its strange and eccentric potential

Despite presenting some pleasingly strange ideas and fun moments, this odd 3DS download fails to live up to its potential.

Review: War of the Roses offers up medieval brutality at its finest with a steep learning curve

This medieval-themed action game presents some cool multiplayer elements. It’s far from perfect, but it’s still easy to recommend for fans of the subject matter.

Review: Wizardlings on iOS tasks you to explore the realm of Skywind, one tile at a time

Dubbed a “tap RPG,” this iOS title is free of charge and totally worth checking out.

Review: Sonic Jump is an addicting, casual take on the blue blur

This isn’t a traditional Sonic the Hedgehog outing, but that doesn’t matter because this iOS game is an absolute blast.

Review: Funky Smugglers is an enjoyable & quirky take on airport security

Entertaining and humorous, this iOS title tasks you with keeping airports and airplanes free of harm in a joyously quirky manner.

Review: Medal of Honor: Warfighter is a prisoner of war to generic gameplay

Despite genuinely rewarding multiplayer gameplay, Warfighter does little to stand out among other military FPS titles. (Video review)

Review: Video game reverence and infectious charm make Wreck-It Ralph a must-see

Simply put, if you dig video games and have a soft spot for referential humor, there’s no reason for you to skip Wreck-It Ralph.

Review: Silent Hill's only Revelation is that it's terrible

The scariest thing about this flick is the idea of people actually watching it. Oh, the horror!


Preview: ZombiU once again instills my faith in the survival horror genre

Could this upcoming Wii U title restore the awesomeness of the survival horror and zombie genres? It certainly has the potential to do exactly that.

Preview: ZombiU's multiplayer puts a player in charge of zombie minions

Playing as a zombie leader who controls other zombies? Yes, it’s as fun as it sounds.
