If you can get past some initial hurdles, Dragon's Crown is one of the best beat-'em-ups money can buy...
Dragon's Dogma combines the rough and tumble combat of actions games like Devil May Cry with a high-fantasy RPG setting and a unique online-centric approach to your party members. Read our review to find out if all those moving parts flow together nicely...
Though hes undoubtedly died millions of times, Dirk the Daring certainly has lived a long life through the many re-releases of the Dragons Lair. The latest reincarnation of the laserdisc-based, Don Bluth-animated arcade game comes in the form of a Blu-Ray disc, playing much the same way as the original.
With the illusion of control, you press the either the Select or directional buttons at precisely the right moment to queue up either successful moves, daring battles or a skin-stripping demise
careening at breakneck speed through downtown San Francisco, and things are
getting a bit hairy. At the moment, we’re in the driver’s seat of a ZR1
Corvette, in hot pursuit of a criminal on the loose. Traffic is heavy and
pedestrians are everywhere, which makes this high-speed chase pretty

whether it be working their way through the campaign and tackling challenges. It’s
not with its setbacks, though, with the less-than-exciting combat system and loot
that feels more like a chore than a reward system...
If Gameloft expects us to play a console port of an iPhone game that’s normally enjoyed in five minute increments while sitting on the toilet, then they damn well better make it worth the increased price. Too bad that can’t be said of Dungeon Hunter: Alliance. Sure, for $12.99, PS3 owners can get a decent cure for their dungeon-crawling itch, but what may work great on the small screen loses all of its charm when splayed across a 47” LCD...
CCP’s grandiose plan for DUST 514 comes up short, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t hints of big things to come...
The Toronto-based indie studio ][ (yes, that's pronounced Right Square Bracket, Left Square Bracket) has dropped its debut title, Dyad, on PSN. Is "one part Rez, one part Wipeout" a fair comparison? Is it worth playing? Find out...
