Final Fantasy XIII-2


My Perspective on Final Fantasy XIII-2
Abobo2000 reviews Final Fantasy XIII-2, the most recently released title in the series. Here, abobo2000 breaks down their review into separate sections; story, gameplay, graphics, etc., giving each aspect its own separate score. This method gives readers a very detailed and helpful review.


The Heroes Never Die
Final Fantasy XIII-2 has garnered its share of mixed reviews, much like its predecessor. Lanser747 makes the rather “bold” statement of it being the best in the series. Their review runs down the mechanics and elements that make this Final Fantasy their favorite.


Super Mario 3D Land


Classic Platforming Fun Meets Modern Elements
I’ve read several reviews over Super Mario 3D Land, but none like this. Apricot gives us their unique review of the latest Super Mario for the 3DS, comparing the title to previous Mario installments to give a better perspective of how the game plays. Great comparison piece.


Metro 2033


It’s The End of The World And I Feel Fine
Jack, The Quixotic Gamer reviews Metro 2033, a post apocalyptic first-person shooter from 2010. In their review, Jack discusses why Metro 2033 not only showed them a good time, but renewed their faith in the first-person shooter.


Assassin’s Creed Revelations


Sometimes Saying Goodbye Can Be A Good Thing
Haiiro89’s review of Assassin’s Creed Revelations discusses both the ups and downs of Ubisoft’s most recent Assassin’s Creed entry. Though Haiiro enjoyed the game, they show us that, as the title reads, saying goodbye is sometimes for the best.


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim


My Review of Skyrim
Skyrim has turned many towards its particular genre and style of gameplay. In their review, Josh tells us just exactly why this title brought back their confidence in the Elder Scrolls series.


Pokemon Rumble Blast


Pokemon Rumble Blast Review
Benderstrike64 gives us their mixed review for Pokemon Rumble Blast for the 3DS. Though many mechanics may work well, benderstrike64 explains the few things that bring Rumble Blast down.


Saints Row 2


All the Promise, None of the Polish
Saints Row: The Third may have garnered quite a lot of positive attention, but what about its predecessor, Saints Row 2? o_JMan240_o gives us their review of the title and tells us of their less than savory experience. Though fun, o_JMan240_o shows us just why Saints Row 2 falls short in their eyes.
