It's the end of the month, and we've had some notable content on GameZone over the past week. If you missed any of the latest reviews, previews, or editorial content, be sure to check it all out right here in our weekly wrap-up.
Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 review (Vita)
If you've got a PlayStation Vita and have a hankerin' for some Lego gaming goodness, definitely check out Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7. For more on the game, why not scope out our review?
Sine Mora review (360)
While it certainly caters to a specific type of shoot 'em up fan, Sine Mora is an exhilarating romp that's worthy of your time if you're into bullet hell shooters. Check out the full review by GameZone's Robert Workman.
Kid Icarus: Uprising review (3DS)
It may present some good ideas, but ultimately, Kid Icarus: Uprising is hampered by tedious controls that make it hard to enjoy.
Angry Birds Space review (iOS)
If you're looking for another reason to get hooked on Angry Birds, then Angry Birds Space should provide you with what you're looking for. It's fun, it's addictive, and it's affordable, so you really couldn't ask for anything more from the franchise.
Tales of Graces f review (PS3)
It may not be the strongest game in the Tales series, but Tales of Graces f delivers an exciting and enjoyable JRPG experience that's certainly worth playing. GameZone's Vito Gesualdi reviews Namco Bandai's latest.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City review (360)
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a slightly above average shooter that poses a nice idea, but ultimately, it fails to deliver on all of its potential. Check out our review of the game by GameZone's Andrew Clouther.
Batman: Arkham City Lockdown review (iOS)
The Dark Knight lands on iOS devices in Batman: Arkham City Lockdown, a game that sadly fails to capture the magic of its console brethren.
FIFA Street review (360)
FIFA Street goes in a different direction compared to its more realistic counterpart, FIFA 12. That's a good thing, though, because this is a game of futbol that you should definitely check out. GameZone's own Tate Steinlage reviews FIFA Street.
All Zombies Must Die! review (PC)
The lighthearted zombie apocalypse has dropped on the PC as All Zombies Must Die! makes its debut on Steam. Like the console versions, it's a fun shoot 'em up, but it's nothing legendary.
ModNation Racers: Road Trip review (Vita)
Suffering from a glaring lack of online multiplayer (among other issues), ModNation Racers: Road Trip for the Vita is a fun racing title, but it's hard to completely recommend.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 review (360)
If you're looking for an enjoyable dose of golf, you really can't go wrong with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13. Though it has its flaws, this is definitely the top choice for golf gaming purists.
Silent Hill HD Collection review (PS3)
A lack of extras and some really bad technical issues make it hard to justify paying $40 for Silent Hill HD Collection, which is sorely underwhelming in comparison to all of the other great enhanced ports we've seen lately.
The final DLC pack for the Saints Row: The Third season pass has landed, and it's easily the best of the three, even if it is too short.
It's not without some quirks, but South Park: Tenorman's Revenge is a fun 2D platformer that will likely be enjoyed by most fans of the series.
The Raid: Redemption review (Movies)
Delivering the goods in terms of action, The Raid: Redemption is a great film for fans of fast-paced fight scenes filled with blood-stained fists. Check out our review of the movie, brought to you by GameZone's Eric Zipper.
Tim and Eric may be good at giving us laughably bad stuff, but Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie is too bad for its own good.
Featuring an interesting premise and the tropes gamers love about PC RTS titles, Confrontation is definitely a game to watch out for. Check out our preview of the upcoming game and get the full details.
