Despite some of its shortcomings, Homefront: The Revolution is a solid open-world FPS. It gets a lot right and if you're in the mood for liberating future America, it might just be your jam.

8 / 10.0 - Alienation
May 15, 2016

Alienation could stand to be better in a lot of the ways I've already mentioned, but it's also one of the best twin-stick shooters I've played, so I can't complain too much. Even with its shortcomings, I found it to be a good waste of time.

Judged on the merits of its quality and content alone, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is a bad game.

Black Desert Online wants to be distinct from other MMORPGs, but it isn't different enough in the ways which really matter. The game's few innovations aren't enough to make up for its myriad shortcomings, making it come across as just another MMORPG.

Hitman lives up to the legacy of the original games, and redeems the series from the lows of Hitman: Absolution by taking the series to new heights.

I went into The Bug Butcher with few expectations, so I was pleasantly surprised by how well the classic arcade mechanics held up to today's standards. It's a challenging game that never feels cheap or unfair.

Oxenfree is a story about human interaction and how we choose to treat each other, all set against a backdrop of supernatural horror. It just feels really human in spite of all the weird stuff.

Given the lack of content, the game feels like a work-in-progress with some poorly conceived features and contrivances that only diminish the game's few strengths.

Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition offers a well-written story, in-depth character development and tactical combat that will be more than enough to please most tactical fans.

Vermintide is a great medieval-themed cooperative FPS. Despite being developed by a smaller studio, Vermintide never feels cheaply made.

Rebel Galaxy offers an exciting, if streamlined experience of commanding a large spaceship with a heavy focus on combat. It doesn't do much with the story beyond inviting you into its universe, but the gameplay, Western-inspired setting and procedurally generated nature will keep you playing for many hours. The music is also a plus!

Bedlam serves as an homage to the first-person shooter genre. It's not quite as polished as the games it emulates, and its nature as an imperfect replica should be quite apparent to any FPS veteran. In spite of its shortcomings, Bedlam is highly entertaining and well worth your time.

9 / 10.0 - Dying Light
Jan 28, 2015

Dying Light is zombie-killing action turned up to 11. To say that it's "not a bad game" would be a colossal understatement. Couple all of that with a pulse-pounding soundtrack and you've got a recipe for something truly enjoyable. Buy this game.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare offers some of the biggest, and most interesting changes to the series since Modern Warfare, and promises hundreds of hours of fun in its fantastic multiplayer mode and gripping single-player campaign that's the best one in the series to date. Don't miss it.

In all, I really enjoyed my experience with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, and plan to spend even more time with it.

The bottom line is that Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition is a fantastic console game that plays, in my opinion, better than the original PC version it's based upon. It's how Diablo III was always meant to be.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a game for facing your fears and gunning them down. Thanks to great shooting mechanics and characters you care about, you'll want to do just that. The tightly scripted narrative works against replayability, and tedious boss battles bog down the action more so than any of the non-combat sections of the game, but otherwise the game is worth several run throughs. Wolfenstein: The New Order is a great game, and one of the best shooters I've played this year.

Skylanders Swap Force – like all of the games in this series – can be without a doubt an expensive hobby, but it's a fun one if you're either a kid or like collecting toys or both, and if you don't mind playing through the game with only three characters, it's also a rewarding way to pass the time with just the basic starter set.
