Unravel review: If Pixar made a game, it might look something like this

Unravel review: If Pixar made a game, it might look something like this

For years, Flower has been the game that I’ve shown friends and family when I want to prove to them that gaming isn’t all about shooting aliens and screaming at strangers over the Internet. Flower is beautiful, tranquil and meaningful, but after all these years, I think a new game has finally taken its place.

That game is Unravel. More →

Star Wars Battlefront Impressions

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ is a stellar trip, but lacks the depth of its predecessors

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ is a stellar trip, but lacks the depth of its predecessors

After spending several hours with the Star Wars Battlefront beta earlier this fall, I wasn’t convinced that EA and DICE had been able to rekindle the magic of the original series. I was also willing to give the small slice of the game available during the beta the benefit of the doubt. After all, Battlefront and Battlefront II thrived on mountains of content.

Sadly, the new Battlefront comes up a little short in that regard. More →

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Leaked Gameplay Footage: See the Game in Action

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Leaked Gameplay Footage: See the Game in Action

There were few third-party games as anticipated as Star Wars Battlefront at E3 2015. I wasn’t as pleased with the reboot as I’d expected to be, but I only had a chance to play a single match on a single map. Battlefront only really thrives once you get a hang of the character classes and learn the maps backwards and forwards.

Unfortunately, we aren’t going to have that opportunity for another few months, but there are gamers out there who are currently participating in the closed alpha, and one of them decided to share some footage from the game. More →

Star Wars Battlefront Preview

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Isn’t the Reboot I Was Looking For

‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Isn’t the Reboot I Was Looking For

Of all the games we knew about before E3 2015 kicked off this week, Star Wars Battlefront might have had the highest profile. Few other games have the pedigree and history of the Battlefront series, fading away before its time with an ambitious third entry canceled before Pandemic Studios could ship it.

After years of silence, Battlefield developer DICE decided to take up the mantle and reboot the series itself. It was one of the biggest reveals of E3 2013, and two years later, I’ve finally had a chance to play it. More →

If you tuned in for the Xbox E3 2015 event earlier today, you might find it hard to believe that other studios have to follow up one of the most impressive presentations in recent E3 history. But the show must go on, and EA is in the unenviable position of holding its own press conference right after Microsoft. More →

Need for Speed 2015 Teaser

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground

Need for Speed reboot trailer brings the series back underground

Need for Speed: Most Wanted was one of my favorite games of the last generation. It’s the second best open world racing game ever made (after the inimitable Forza Horizon 2), but its follow-up, Need for Speed Rivals, just didn’t connect with me. I wanted something even bigger and more impressive, but what I got was a conservative step into the new console generation.

A year and a half later, developer Ghost Games is back with another Need for Speed, and the first teaser just went live.

Battlefield Hardline review: Line of duty

I’m sick of playing the same first-person shooter campaign year after year. No matter how many explosions go off or which celebrity tries to take over the world, I just don’t think I could handle another world war.

That’s why Battlefield Hardline is my favorite console shooter on the market right now — it’s a different beast entirely. More →
