Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

By

I’m not too keen on the idea of really shooting another man in the head with an AK-47 in the horrific heat of war, but isn’t it a wonder how our fantasies take us to some pretty heavy territory? I have a terrific time being a soldier in a world war in Modern Warfare 3. Some people hate the idea of a game like this, and I kind of understand where they’re coming from. But I’m not here to debate the rights and wrongs of war in our videogames—I’m here to proclaim Modern Warfare 3 the most intense, the most convincing first-person shooter I’ve ever played.

EyePet and Friends

By

Over the years, the handy virtual pet has offered many children the chance of owning a fantastic creature without having to clean up the mess. I remember when I was younger and I was suckered into the Tamagotchi craze. And so now, many years later, we’ve seen this virtual-pet genre evolve to the point that we’ve got motion-control gimmick games that basically serve the same purpose. And so, with that, we’re looking at the second iteration of Sony’s virtual-pet time- and money-waster in EyePet & Friends. READ MORE

Winter Stars

We’ve certainly seen a slew of motion-control sports games of late—with some definitely more worthwhile experiences than others. The latest publisher to hop on the trend? Deep Silver, the folks who turned the zombie-blasting genre on its head a couple months ago with Dead Island. But can they bring that same innovation to another genre that seems to have hit a brick wall in terms of ingenuity via little-known German developer 49Games? READ MORE

Batman: Arkham City: Nightwing DLC

By

So, with Batman: Arkham City featuring Catwoman and Robin as playable challenge map characters, it would only make sense that the next member of the Bat-family to be featured would be the original sidekick for the Caped Crusader in the form of Grayson. But is he worth the $7 DLC price-tag (560 Microsoft Points) he comes with or should he simply retreat back to the shadows? READ MORE

Battlefield 3

One needn’t look further than their Twitter feed to get the consensus on Battlefield 3. Considered a potential Call of Duty-killer since EA unveiled that eye-searing single-player demo earlier this year, the publisher’s bid to take down Activision’s FPS juggernaut has been described as both awful and awesome—the former referring to the single-player campaign, the latter describing the multiplayer content.

If you’re any bit of a Lord of the Rings fan, you’ll be blown away by the lengths the development team went to make this look, sound, and feel faithful to that universe. READ MORE

Sonic Generations

By
Posted on November 1, 2011 AT 09:00am
For 20 years, Sonic the Hedgehog has been the fastest videogame character in the world. Sega’s original Sonic series managed to compete with Nintendo’s heavy hitter, Mario, because it gave players not only speed, but also multiple paths through every level. This core’s held over the years, even though the move to the third dimension hasn’t fared as well for the blue furball. Sonic: Generations brings the old and the new together, literally pitting the original 2D and current 3D Sonic in a tale intended to make original and current Sonic fans happy. Unfortunately, it only works half the time. READ MORE

Pyre Night in New Marais brings out all the weirdos: party girls wearing masks and horns, goths trying to get their cool drunk on, and vampires wanting to resurrect some seriously evil vamp queen named Bloody Mary. Can Cole quench her blood lust in this standalone side story? READ MORE

House of the Dead: Overkill: Extended Cut

By
Posted on October 26, 2011 AT 06:30am
Back in 2009, an arcade classic was in desperate need of a makeover—and, of all places, it came from the Wii, surprisingly enough. The House of the Dead: Overkill served as a prequel for the immensely popular lightgun House of the Dead games and explained, sort of, both the origins of Agent G (the series’ main protagonist) and the zombie-causing formula he’s fought for 15 years—all wrapped in a ’70s B-movie setting with over-the-top voice acting, tons of sex and swearing, and cheesy moments galore. Looking to capitalize on that surprising success, Sega’s ported the game over to the PS3 with some upgrades in hopes of catching lightning in a bottle with a new audience. READ MORE

The Cursed Crusade

By

The Cursed Crusade revolves around the idea that those who commit heinous crimes against their fellow men—whether in the name of God or not—see their bloodline marked for generations, and that their descent to hell is guaranteed. I think this game may suffer from the fate it laid out for several of its in-game characters. READ MORE

Kinect Sports: Season Two

By
Posted on October 26, 2011 AT 05:00am
When Kinect launched last year, several titles showed off the possibility of the peripheral, but few had the lasting appeal of Kinect Sports. Fun when played individually—but truly appreciated with a group of friends—the game made a clear, lasting impression on the casual market. Now, Microsoft looks to see if they can reel in soccer moms again with Kinect Sports: Season Two. American football, baseball, golf, darts, tennis, and skiing are all featured in this newest iteration—and if you thought you broke a sweat before, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. READ MORE

Motion Sports: Adrenaline

By

The MotionSports series is Ubisoft’s attempt to give gamers a more realistic alternative to the Kinect Sports offerings while also providing a variety of different sports. Since Kinect Sports took a cue from several of the original MotionSports games and added football and skiing to their gamut of minigames this year, MotionSports decided to go a step further with Adrenaline and focus on extreme sports: mountain-climbing, kite-surfing, wingsuit-gliding, mountain-biking, kayaking, and the return of skiing. But could they fix their own flaws from their first go around? READ MORE

Batman: Arkham City

Comic book fans are easily some of the most rabid fans out there. Maybe it’s because of the history, maybe it’s the appeal of the characters, maybe it’s because of a lack of social skills developed in their mom’s basement, but whatever the reason, whenever something features comic book characters, the fans tear it apart. Well, good luck finding fault with this one. And trust me, being a fan myself, I tried. Check out our full review of Batman: Arkham City here! READ MORE

PowerUp Heroes

PowerUp Heroes, Ubisoft's superheroic Kinect offering, puts you in direct control of your Xbox 360 Avatar. You’re just going about your digital business when a spaceship crash-lands in front of you, and—in a scene that hearkens back to Hal Jordan’s origins as Green Lantern—a dying alien warns that a menace to the galaxy is on its way to Earth. Only by accepting and mastering this extraterrestrial’s potent power will you be able to overcome this global threat. READ MORE

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One

By
Posted on October 18, 2011 AT 09:00am
It’s exceedingly appropriate that this week’s EGMi: The Digital Magazine highlights our favorite arcade classics, because Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One would be right at home at Chuck E. Cheese’s circa 1992 alongside Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, The Simpsons, and X-Men. Few games in the two decades since have truly captured the hectic, nonstop, free-for-all multiplayer destruction of those experiences, but All 4 One offers the same teamwork, camaraderie, and competitiveness—all that’s missing is a disturbing animatronic rat peering menacingly from above.

When I was a child, among the various videogame-related publications that would show up in my mailbox every month, I had a subscription to Games magazine. It had nothing to do with this hobby we love to love so much—instead, it tested your mental abilities with a wide variety of logic puzzles. READ MORE
