Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Review

Nothing Is Good. Everything Is Permitted.

HIGH  These three titles represent the most memorable story development in the series.

LOW  These three titles represent the laziest upgrade package on modern consoles.

WTF  Assassin’s Creed II’s gameplay has aged as well as dollar-store parmesan.


Steep Review

Doing 1080s In A Winter Wonderland

HIGH Gorgeous snowy mountains to explore on the ground or in the air.

LOW: The mountains are filled with forgettable missions and events.

WTF: The first person GOPRO camera view is so out of control it’s unusable.


For Honor: December 2016 Preview

Ubisoft was recently kind enough to invite GameCritics to take a look at their upcoming knights vs. vikings vs. ninjas brawler For Honor. I was able to get my hands on a few missions from the campaign, and also went a few rounds in the multiplayer arenas. This was my first time ever playing the game, and it clearly showed as For Honor requires more than button mashing to master.


For Honor Alpha Preview

ForHonor03For the last few days, I’ve been putting time into one of my most-anticipated titles — For Honor, from Ubisoft Montreal.

Although the game isn’t out yet (it’s currently due to release in February 2017) Gamecritics was given some “alpha” codes to get an early hands-on. A number of features were disabled and large portions of the content were not available, but this limited slice gave a very good idea of what the full title will deliver… And it’s kind of awesome.

Far Cry Primal Review

Not much has changed in 12,000 years

Far Cry Primal Review Screenshot

HIGH It appeared to be uncharted territory for a first-person title…

LOW … until I realized it was sort of identical to any other Far Cry title.

WTF Monosyllabic grunts kill the rom-com subplot.
