Metareview: Far Cry 4

The Far Cry series has gotten progressively more entertaining over time. Unlike Ubisoft's overextended Assassin's Creed army, its Far Cry team has had time to craft something that is beautiful and fun to play. Our review said it was "another interesting and absorbing world to fall into, shoot th...

Metareview: Assassin's Creed: Unity

As Assassin's Creed: Unity leapt down to PC, Xbox One and PS4 today, it was met with a mixed critical response. Our review of the game got hung up on plot issues and buildings, the latter in a very literal sense, with a middling score that plunged through the floor much like our hero Arno did durin...

Metareview: Dragon Age: Inquisition

Yeah, we know. "Nobody expects the Dragon Age: Inquisition" and all that.

Metareview: Call of Duty - Advanced Warfare

I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die.

Our five-star review of Insomniac's outlandish action game based in the apocalyptic Sunset City praised its variety in elements like mission structure and weaponry. Thanks to gear like the "rapid-fire weapon that launches v...

Metareview: The Evil Within

Reviews for The Evil Within are flowing like a slit throat, with scores splattered all over the walls. Our review of the survival horror/action game faulted it as a frustrating experience that "ignored its own rules." Others were similarly disappointed, but plenty of folks seem to be content with g...

Metareview: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

We recognized Borderland: The Pre-Sequel for what it is in our review: "It's to shoot a bunch of weird, wacky enemies in the face and to shovel as much loot into our packs as we can carry." Are you looking for more Borderlands? In that bizarre style you couldn't get enough of after going thro...

Metareview: Bayonetta 2

Our five-star review - yup, all five stars - said Bayonetta 2 is a bit of a triumph, with Earnest "Nex" Cavalli deeming Platinum's hack-and-slash sequel one of the best games to come to Wii U. And remember, it's only on Wii U. "Bayonetta 2 is the perfect action game," wrote Nex. "It oozes style ...
