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: Metal Gear Solid 5 - Ground Zeroes

Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is the amuse bouche of the bigger (and hopefully better) The Phantom Pain, which should sneak into stores sometime between October and the birth of standardized nanotechnology. Our review of this carved out experience called it "too good to be a cash-in, too...

Metareview: Titanfall

Prepare for Titanfall! Today's the big day when the big mechs come falling from the sky. Our review said it "isn't tuned to perfection for everyone yet, but it starts as a smart, swift and startling movement in well-traveled space." If you're still cyber fence-sitting about the game, check...

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: 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: 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: 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: 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....

Metareview: Lost Planet 3

We said Lost Planet 3 is a "game about attempting to get on with it and failing miserably." So, let's get on with it... Game Trailers (77/100): "It's true that a lot of the game feels standard issue; nothing's really broken but there's certainly a bit of awkwardness. In the end playing Lost...
