Kinect Sports Rivals review: The crowd goes mild

Kinect Sports Rivals looks like a mobile game for the new, hit reality sports show that all of your friends will be watching, according to its prime time commercials. The game is crowded with bright colors, an excitable narrator, a hard-ass trainer, prompts to buy perks for your character and ads...

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes review: Naked snack

It's a pleasure being lost in the universe of Metal Gear. With every game, and with every return of director Hideo Kojima, the fascinating stealth series redraws the boundaries of its dense military fiction, pushing them back to include more and more characters and conspiracies. We feel like...

Titanfall review: Prime delivery

Titanfall is strictly coiled around the player. You couldn't excise even one piece without slackening it like a ruined kidnapper's rope. The serpentine level design, the liberating sense of movement, the flawless controls and yes, the enormous bipedal tanks dropping from the sky, are equally...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare review: Give peas a chance

Peggle 2 review: Relapse

For many people, Peggle 2 stands as an involuntary, compulsory purchase. For others, Peggle 2 is one of the last new Xbox One games launching this year and, at $12, it's an easy recommendation amidst the rest of the fledgling console's library. When Peggle 2 inevitably spreads to other platforms,...

NBA Live 14 review: Bricklayer

For years, EA has toiled away at revitalizing its basketball series. In 2010, this meant retiring the NBA Live brand and replacing it with NBA Elite, which would only get canceled later that same year after a demo introduced us all to The Pose – a glitch that saw a random player locked in a...

Crimson Dragon review: A Dragoon denied

Read all of our Xbox One news and reviews right here! Crimson Dragon is not a Panzer Dragoon game, so maybe it's not fair to judge it as one. Then again, it was directed by Yukio Futatsugi, director of the Panzer Dragoon series, and its development team included many Panzer Dragoon veterans, and...
