Metareview: Thief

Say "hello" to Thief, the first game of the year with review scores across the board. Ours trended toward the higher side calling it a game where the "balance isn't entirely successful." Game Informer (80/100): "Locked behind this old-school game design is a gem that stealth fans should eye up...

Metareview: Lightning Returns - Final Fantasy 13

Lightning's last two outings were far from universally acclaimed, so while a lot of things are surprising about her goodbye game, a mixed critical reaction isn't one of them. Managing Editor Susan Arendt's four-star analysis says Lightning Returns is "a fitting farewell for the final chapter of...

Metareview: Fighter Within

There are games so bad that even trying to review them is a paradox. We simply couldn't do it with Ubisoft's Xbox One Kinect game Fighter Within. At least Aliens: Colonial Marines was sport. Fighter Within is... well, is it possible for a publisher to put out product just for the...

Metareview: Super Mario 3D World

Our review of Super Mario 3D World couldn't help but mention Luigi's "adorable cat butt." So, obviously, it's a five-star game from us. Eurogamer (100/100): "It's beautiful as well as busy, too. While Nintendo came to HD textures late, it's benefited more than most - probably because it has...

Metareview: Call of Duty - Ghosts

It's seriously lacking in Swayze, but Call of Duty: Ghosts still notches three and a half stars in our review. According to Xav, the latest entry in Activision's flagship shooter series "is a solid installment, but it lacks creativity and innovation." If you'd literally like to hear more of his...

Metareview: Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

Assassin's Creed 4, according to our review, will have "you leap between the roles of assassin, pirate and one-time whaler wracked with guilt." But we aren't the only fish in the sea, let's see what others thought. Gamespot (90/100): "A story that keeps you invested throughout the whole thing....

Metareview: Battlefield 4

War, huh? What - Is it good, 4? Well, Dave certainly thought Battlefield 4 was good in his review, in which he unloaded four and a half stars' worth of praise onto DICE's first-person shooter. That said, there's many a soldier out there on the Battlefield, and you might be interested in what...

Metareview: Beyond: Two Souls

Reviews for Quantic Dream's Beyond: Two Souls appear to have been delicately placed on a lazy susan and then spun by the force of a truck slamming into the table. We haven't seen scattershot like this since the last time we fed caviar to a baby. Our review used the term "face full of ghost farts"...

Metareview: Pokemon X / Y

Pokemon is back with a new coat of fur, scales and whatever MewTwo has for skin. Our review of Pokémon X/Y called it "hands-down the best in the series." Let's see what the other Poke trainers thought: IGN (90/100): "Building on five generations of games, a digital menagerie of...

Metareview: Grand Theft Auto 5

Grand Theft Auto 5. We reviewed it. So did other outlets. Opinions differ slightly. Edge (100/100): "Everything works. It has mechanics good enough to anchor games of their own, and a story that is not only what GTA has always wanted to tell but also fits the way people have always played it....
