Killzone: Shadow Fall is the perfect way to show the PlayStation 4 to your friends due to the game's graphical awe but overall, Killzone Shadow Fall fails to bring something entirely new or inspiring. Right off the bat, you will know that the most poignant factor of Killzone: Shadow Fall are the graphics. Guerrilla Games have been able to render magnificent settings such as the city-scape of Ve... more.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, at first, is beautiful to behold and entangles you into a massive world you want to explore but with a lack of compelling gameplay mechanics, this MMO fails to hit the mark. In A Realm Reborn, you are thrust into the once ravaged region of Eorzea in the world, Hydaelin. For ten years, a war between the three cities of Eorzea and the invading Garlean Empire was... more.

The PlayStation Vita certainly had a rocky start when it came down to it's first person shooter offerings. Both Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified and Resistance: Burning Skies were developed by a studio formally called Nihilistic Games and demonstrated a terrible way to implement the Vita's capabilities.

In a move of stupidity, Sony with the help of Zoink Games, have created a temple run like crossover title for both iOS and Android. In this game, you will "try out an island full of fast, action-packed PlayStationÂ® adventures" and instead of giving the fans the stages/characters Sony Santa Monica have cancelledÂ that they have demanded for, Zoink Games have created a cheap knockoff of Temple Run ... more.

Although the post apocalyptic zombie genre hasÂ been used to death, Naughty Dog have managed to create a game with such an original thought provoking narrative never before seen in media with The Last of Us. This, plus the addicting nature of collecting materials and crafting weapons, strategically approaching a situation and following the story really makes The Last of Us a must have for any PS3 ... more.

Fuse is an interesting co-op shooter with powerful and highly responsive weapons, complex characters and a promising co-operative play system but the experience itself doesnâ€™t overly impress due to a repetitive gameplay structure and a lacking story. Previously Insomniac Games, the developers of Fuse, has worked on the Ratchet and Clank series which contains much adult humor while mixing it w... more.
