Metareview: NBA 2K15

Another year, another entry in what may be the most consistent series in sports video games. NBA 2K15 follows a critically-beloved predecessor that we described as "gorgeous," before adding that "the on-court action is every bit as engaging and hospitable as it's always been, and the visuals are mo...

Metareview: Alien: Isolation

The good news is Alien: Isolation is far from being the disaster that was Aliens: Colonial Marines. Isolation delivers plenty of what franchise and survival series fans would hope for, with the consistent criticism brought up across reviews that it just. Keeps. Going. Our 4-star review was right...

Metareview: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

We handed Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS four and half stars, calling it "the most feature-complete, compelling Super Smash Bros. entry to date," and setting it right alongside Fire Emblem: Awakening and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds as a game that every 3DS owner should play. C...

Metareview: Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor

Our five-star review of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor reassured players that an appreciation for J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings universe isn't necessary to enjoy the deep action game. "What would have otherwise been a competent sandbox game with solid combat mechanics and an interesting twist ...

Metareview: Destiny

Our review of Destiny said we're in it to "slay monsters, level up and collect loot." It's an interplanetary dungeon crawler. Go into the experience with that expectation, along with some friends, you'll do just fine. But, overall, Destiny reviews have skewed toward the lower end of the acceptab...

We ... may have embellished that a little bit. While flawed in execution, our revi...

Metareview: Watch Dogs

The first installment of a new Ubisoft franchise just wouldn't be the same if it didn't create critical disagreement. Reviews for Watch Dogs were formed with all the gestational efforts and subsequent knee-jerk commenter fervor that we haven't seen since the original Assassin's Creed. Our review...

Metareview: Transistor

Red has red hair The Transistor is blue We decree 3.5 stars Go read our review Yes, Transistor is now out for PC and PS4, and that means it's time to see what everyone thinks. While we found that Supergiant Games' futuristic, not-quite-cyberpunk adventure "makes a great first impression," it ...

Metareview: Wolfenstein: The New Order

Video game villains don't get much more classic than the occult-loving Nazis of the Wolfenstein series - they've been goose-stepping and zeig heil-ing for more than 30 years. Unfortunately, the gameplay of the latest game in the series, Wolfenstein: The New Order, is anything but classic. From our ...

Metareview: Mario Kart 8

Nintendo turned on the nitros with the new Wii U bundle for Mario Kart 8, not forgetting how every copy of the racer bundles in a code for a free game. Good thing, then, MK8 itself is a 4.5 stars winner according to Joystiq's Thomas Schulenberg. From his review: "Despite an unfortunate change to...
