R.B.I. Baseball ’17 Review

April 6, 2017 // 0 Comments

I’ve reviewed each of the R.B.I. games since MLB brought the series back in 2014. At this point, I’m not sure a review is necessary anymore. I feel like I should just copy and paste what I wrote last year, because it’s the same game with an updated roster. There’s no new modes and no new ways to play. I also can’t [...]

Horrible Bosses Review

January 16, 2012 // 1 Comment

Let’s just get the most important bit out of the way first shall we? Horrible Bosses is a very funny movie. That’s all you really needed to know wasn’t it? Well, there you have it. If you’re not into the whole analysis thing, feel free to take that free cookie and head on over to the forums to ogle pictures in the Babe Zone. [...]

WWE ’12 Review

November 22, 2011 // 7 Comments

  The past few years have been rough for fans of wrestling games. On one hand, the presentation of the annual WWE simulation series Smackdown vs. RAW continued to evolve and become more and more like its real life counterpart. On the other hand, the actually gameplay itself was boring and marred by poor AI, and even online play against real [...]

BloodRayne: Betrayal Review

November 15, 2011 // 0 Comments

First, let me say that I have never played a game in the BloodRayne series, and only caught about five to ten minutes of one of the movies when it came on the Sci-fy channel. It seemed like an intriguing series however, so I jumped at the chance to take a crack at this game. As expected, we play as the title character, Rayne. With something of a [...]

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Review

November 10, 2011 // 6 Comments

Uncharted 3 was my most anticipated game of the year. It’s been a week since its release, and I have finished the single player campaign twice (Normal and Crushing), and I can safely say that it lived up to my anticipation and expectations. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves set the bar extremely high, and I believe Naughty Dog are right when they say [...]

F.E.A.R. Review

November 1, 2011 // 2 Comments

  “Make them REMEMBER WHAT FEAR TASTES LIKE.” – Freddy vs. Jason Hello all and welcome back to The Backlog. It’s been a while, but my shitty internet is working…well, barely, but it’s scraping me by for the time being. With that in mind, let’s back to business. F.E.A.R. starts out as a first person shooter, [...]

4 Elements HD Review

October 14, 2011 // 1 Comment

4 Elements HD is a matching game, but instead of swapping two adjoining pieces to try and put three of the same color together, 4 Elements HD requires you to look carefully and use the joysticks (or Move) to chain three or more same colored gems together. Each level as some type of liquid energy, and you’ll have to destroy the tiles by creating [...]

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Review

October 11, 2011 // 5 Comments

I’ll admit up front that I absolutely hate basketball, and that I could care less about any basketball simulation game. That’s why I’ve loved the NBA Jam series since I was a kid playing it on the Genesis, or SNES, or in an arcade. NBA Jam strips the game down to its most basic element without having rules (with the exception of goal [...]

Eufloria Review

October 4, 2011 // 5 Comments

  If you’re a PS3 gamer who has been longing for a satisfying, addictive, and simple real time strategy game to sink many hours into then you are in luck; Eufloria is available as of today on Playstation Network, and it’s the RTS game that you’ve been looking for. Strategy games haven’t translated all that well to consoles, mostly due [...]

From Dust Review

September 17, 2011 // 1 Comment

In From Dust you are cast as the formless entity known as The Breath, and your sole goal is to protect a tribe of people and help them build new villages during their journey to find the Ancients. You are basically the god of these tribal folks, although your power as god is quite limited at times. With that limited power, you’ll also face palm [...]

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review

September 15, 2011 // 5 Comments

I’m reviewing the PC version of this game but make no mistake: You get a high quality experience on whichever platform you can get this one and you should as soon as possible. Upfront I will say that you should prepare to play the best game you’ve played this year thus far at least. If you have the hardware, the PC opens the door up [...]

Altered Beast Review

September 6, 2011 // 3 Comments

This is the last of the SEGA Vintage Collection coming to Playstation Network. It’s available now for Playstation Plus subscribers for free, and will be available to all PSN members to purchase in a couple of weeks. This is the same enhanced version of the game that hit Xbox LIVE Arcade on June 10, 2009. Many people have fond memories of this [...]
