It's a tough one. At the end of the day, the critic they assign to the review is either an Xbox Editor or Playstation Editor, thus, they'll be familiar with certain franchises over the course of the platforms history. Whenever it's a franchise like Halo or Uncharted, my preference is to hear from someone familiar with the series.

Like any review though, take it with a grain of salt. #17.2

No doubt. The pressure was certainly on them to deliver. Glad they did. #2.1

To be fair, Bloodshot wasn't a bad game by any means and definitely had some memorable moments (grizzly bear in the cabin anyone?), but suffered from a bizarre plot twist that really took away from its most interesting assets. Worth playing I think, but doesn't reach the same heights that Criminal Origins does. #6.1

Good God. This barely constitutes a sufficient tumblr post. This may be the most pointless article ever written.

Hotline Miami doesn't glorify violence, it discusses our drive as gamers when it comes to killing, the high scores and how it desensitises us. It's about donning the mask for anonymity. When we enter the room with that mask on, we aren't expected to be human, we're monsters.

Oh well, he misses out on one of the best of the year I gu... #2

Oh please. They REALLY couldn't do anything marginally different? Wasn't the end of the 3rd definitive?

I can see why Robert Bowling jumped ship. Creative levels at an all-time low. #6

Catherine is a fantastic game. Horror though? Subjective. I mean, it's about the pressures of marriage and children and dedicating your entire life to your partner, so yeah, it's scary in that sense. #3.1.1

There isn't anything inherently wrong with the gameplay, it plays just like any other third-person cover shooter. Maybe it comes across as generic, but it's the last thing on your mind when you have a story so potent. Similar experience to Silent Hill (although it still plays better than that).

I picked up the game in the 2K bundle during Steam sale. Thinking it would be one of the weaker titles, I decided to blast through it first and leave the best stuff for last. C... #2.1

Worth reading the Eurogamer's review to see the comparison between Warfighter and Call of Duty. Regardless of how tired the formula is, the Call of Duty campaign is always tightly controlled in ways that no other military shooter has been able to replicate. The multiplayer is another story though.

Also lolworthy: Just look at the screenshots. They've stuck a 'MEDAL OF HONOR WARFIGHTER' stamp to every single one because it knows it can't seperate itself fr... #3.1

It disappoints me that Warfighter will probably see millions in sales, while a great story-driven campaign like Spec Ops: The Line won't see the light of day for gamers that desperately need it. #6

I believe he's referring to the PC version, which I also think is one of the most atrocious ports I've ever, ever seen. #9.1.1

This is what you call 1st tier development, people. A team like Irrational or Valve or Naughty Dog that produce content at such a high level, that they simultaneously inspire and blow away those that are beneath them. Who else would have taken a concept as rich as Bioshock, maintained the feel, but created an entirely new, masterful design? None too many.

If you can't already tell, this trailer has made me change my underwear. #7

I can assure you unequivocally that Borderlands 2 blows the original out of the water. I legitimately HATED the first game for the same reasons. Borderlands 2 has so much variety. It's the perfect sequel and well worth checking out. #2.1.2

Edge don't mess around, but neither do Criterion. Can't wait for this bad boy to drop. #4

Re-playability will vary. It's a huge game with a heap of side-quests. I finished it just over a year ago, but I didn't do absolutely everything. I must have logged about 35 hours in all. With that said, I'm willing to play through the Director's Cut in a second. The driving and the map screen are probably the worst things about it from memory, but I imagine they will have fixed both. #5.1.2

It shouldn't be too highly priced, given the original game was about $20-30 bucks. Quite frankly, the game is well worth a full price release. It's staggeringly weird and wonderful. #5.1

This exact thing happened to me. Comes down to poor game design. You'd think the area with the most light would be a safe-haven or the key to survival, but you'd be wrong. For the sake of theatrics I had the car slam into me twice as well.

Surely RE6 has some of the cheapest attacks/"scares"/dea ths in recent memory? I've never seen anything like it. Another part that bugged the hell out of me was the mine-cart section in Leon's campaign. You're... #1

FOV is set to 90, hence the screen stretch. You can alter the settings because it isn't a mod. It's careful tweaking done to the color palette to make it look different. #3.1

I think it's important to give any new IP its dues, especially when it turns out as good as Dishonored. The game is far from perfect, no doubt. I think the soundtrack could be better, the controls a little tighter, the AI smarter, and the story more involved etc. but I don't think it detracts from the core of the game, which is excellent.

Consider the fact that this game doesn't even have a map, that's a developer that has confidence in its own level design,... #5

At the very least, this guy is decent at the game. Usually you get some absolute mugs playing the game for cam footage. #8

It is VERY reminiscent of Bioshock and Deus Ex: HR, both of which I feel are some of the best this generation has to offer.

Very deep, exemplary level and art design, numerous takedown options, what's not to like?

In terms of The Witcher 2, it doesn't really remind me of it, but it's similar in the sense that you have an open area with all sorts of cool little objectives that you can do at your own pace, but again, it's much closer to Deus Ex. #2.1.3
