Gears of War, Now Prettier - Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Review

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Review

When the Xbox 360 launched in 2005, I had no intention to purchase it until Halo 3 hit store shelves. Halo was, after all, the only reason why I had the original Xbox. That was until I was invited over to a friend's house to play this new game called Gears of War. I was blown away by the insane multiplayer and the incredible weapons, most notably the chainsaw bayonetted Lancer. The gore, graphics, and cooperative campaign were a huge part of why I went home and began saving up for the 360. Now it's nearly a decade later and the Xbox One's remaster of Gears of War is here. Does Gears of War: Ultimate Edition recapture that same, bloody magic that made the original so special or is it just a subpar port with a new coat of paint?

It Is a Vita Dungeon Crawler - Dungeon Travelers 2 Review

Dungeon Travelers 2 Review

Dungeon Travelers 2 is the newest Vita dungeon crawler released by Atlus. The Playstation Vita has quite a few of these Japanese dungeon crawlers. It seems every week there is some new dungeon crawler coming out for the Vita. This makes it pretty hard for anyone single dungeon crawler to stand out. Yes, each game does things to differentiate themselves from the pack. But for the most part it comes down to anime teens fighting monsters to save the world, fan service, and turn-based combat in bland environments. So does Dungeon Travelers 2 do anything to stand out?

The Near-Perfect Superhero Game - Batman: Arkham Knight Review

Batman: Arkham Knight Review

The Rocksteady Batman games have a history of quality, being some of the best games on the previous generation of consoles, setting the bar for superhero action games. Now after a four year wait Rocksteady is here with the first Batman game on the current generation of consoles, but does this Batman own the night or is it a disappointment?

Unite Hype! - The Wonderful 101 Video Review

The Wonderful 101 Video Review

Today, The Wonderful 101 faces evaluation, and shines with presentation. But not all is a brilliant star, as gameplay suffers difficulties. A marvel now unleashed, it is…the review, on The Gamer Access!

Rare Successfully Celebrated - Rare Replay Review

Rare Replay Review

Rare is one of the most influential studios in the entire history of video games. Even if you take away the games that they made with Nintendo characters, you still have Perfect Dark, Killer Instinct, Jet Force Gemini, Conker, Battletoads and many others. While contemporary titles like Kinect Sports haven't been hits, Rare's most recent release, the Rare Replay, is a collection of some of their greatest classics from their 30 years of history. It has tons of extras and is priced at only thirty dollars. But is this a case of quantity over quality or is this thirtieth anniversary collection worth of the Rare name?

Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy Review

Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy Review

The PlayStation Vita is still severely lacking new, great games. Sure we've got several cool new indie titles headed its way, but what about big titles that can possibly save the system? NIS' Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy may not be that big title, but can it add itself to the short list of awesome Vita games?

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Review

Open world RPG's are huge in the game industry today. Often when talking about new video games, we discuss the game's content, size of the game world, graphics, and, of course, its replay-ability. CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the newest edition to the popular Witcher series. There has been a ridiculous amount of hype centered around this game, but can the Witcher 3 reach or surpass its lofty expectations?

Bloodborne Review

Bloodborne Review

Rejoice, Souls fans, because Bloodborne is finally here! From Software, the company that gave gamers everywhere a need to take anger management classes, returns with an all-new controller busting, brain stumping, make-you-yell-at-your-TV PlayStation 4 exclusive. Bloodborne isn't another Souls game but, rather, a very similar one especially for Dark Souls and Demon Souls veterans. If you are new to the series this game provides a much needed challenge that many games nowadays are missing.

Ori and the Blind Forest Review

Ori and the Blind Forest Review

When I first saw Ori and the Blind Forest at E3 2014, it looked like a really beautiful indie platformer with standard gameplay. Everything pointed to it being one of those games that get by on great presentation and possibly a good story, but no real gameplay. I am happy to say this isn't the case. Ori and the Blind Forest is a wonderful “Metroidvania” style platformer that is up there with Gaucamelee and Symphony of the Night.

The Awakened Fate Ultimatum Review

The Awakened Fate Ultimatum Review

The PlayStation 3 is nearing the end of its lifespan with the next generation of consoles already a year old. In the PS3's catalog, you'll find many great games that will make you want to keep it around for years to come. NIS's The Awakened Fate Ultimatum is a brand new dungeon crawler that's looking to breathe new life into your PlayStation 3. Is The Awakened Fate Ultimatum a reason to put more time into your PS3 or is it time to look to the future of console gaming and skip this game all together?
