EA Sports UFC review: Jon 'Barebones' Jones

As the first official UFC game handled by Electronic Arts, EA Sports UFC has a lot to prove. Comparisons to THQ's now defunct UFC Undisputed series are unavoidable. The final game in that series, UFC Undisputed 3, proved that Ultimate Fighting's brand of mixed martial arts isn't just about combat,...

Valiant Hearts: The Great War review: Friends in low places

Valiant Hearts: The Great War treads surely and lightly through the grimmest of places. It sends you digging into the trenches of World War 1, but knows that leaving you to wallow in the mud and blood forever does not grant it emotional maturity. For every dour moment in Valiant Hearts, for every...

Pushmo World review: Push even mo'

Mallo is one sneaky little freak of a Nintendo mascot. Just look at him: the bemused cartoon cat smile, his spongy red velvet cake body, that adorable sumo wrestler thong, the way he flaps his arms as he jumps around towers of colored blocks.

Always Sometimes Monsters review: Being human

There aren't any monsters in Always Sometimes Monsters. No giant, scaly creatures with sharp claws and beady red eyes; no tentacled squid beasts; no fuzzy, purple and green dinosaurs. The game instead tackles figurative monsters in questions of morality, offering the player mundane choices in...

Murdered: Soul Suspect review: Good cop, dead cop

Murdered: Soul Suspect makes a bold choice right from the start by favoring information over action. It's unusual to play as a street-smart detective and not have to worry about aiming, reloading, or even how to throw a punch, instead focusing your efforts on stepping back and thinking about your...

Leo's Fortune review: Gold 'stache

Leo's Fortune stars a blue ball of fur with a mustache. Actually, make that a rich blue ball of fur named Leopold, who sets out on a journey to demand the return of his missing gold from other fuzzy blobs he's related to in one way or another. At its heart, Leo's Fortune is a beautiful...

Among The Sleep Review: Real monsters

Childhood memories are a double-edged sword. On one side, our first word, our first steps, our first plate of spaghetti.
