Just Cause Review

The successful balance between exciting innovation and comfortable familiarity is a delicate one. It's true that large doses of creativity can sometimes lead an otherwise solid project wildly awry, but on the other hand, there's little value in rehashing ideas and not going far enough. In the case of Just Cause, the developers have innovated with one shining addition, but otherwise let the scales weigh heavily with well-trodden material.

Destroy All Humans! 2 – Review

Read review of Destroy All Humans! 2A textbook sequel in every sense of the word, the game is guilty of hewing closely to a previously-established formula.

Urban Chaos: Riot Response – Review

There are few more frightening and iconic figures than the riot control police officer. Dressed entirely in black with faces obscured, carrying clubs and grenade launchers, viciously beating people as they lie helpless on the ground.
