Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City takes the canon in a whole new direction with a co-op squad shooter that takes place around the events of Resident Evil 2. Is it as awesome as a Chicago Typewriter, or is it about as much fun as huffing the G-Virus out of a canister?
HD horror on the high seas...
While Final Fantasy tries to be progressive by appealing to the masses – simplifying and streamlining to the point where where some series’ fans are feeling left out – Resonance of Fate raises an eyebrow and then heads in completely the opposite direction.
It’s never easy to revamp a long-running series, which is just what Namco’s attempting to do in Ridge Racer Unbounded. Veteran racing game developers Bugbear are a talented lot, but can even their considerable expertise make Ridge Racer relevant in a world dominated by the likes of Burnout?
Not too long ago, 20th Century Fox convinced the makers of Angry Birds to release an expansion to their popular casual franchise featuring the characters from Rio, an animated feature about the world's last two Spix's Macaws. That game arguably rivaled the first in terms of awesomeness, and Fox probably should have left any spinoff ambitions at that.

Does it succeed, or does the Kinect functionality just hinder the horror?
Rise of the Argonauts tries its best to copy the “modern” Action RPG stereotype set forth by games like Mass Effect and Jade Empire. As King Jason, you travel from place to place in an attempt to find the golden fleece and use it to resurrect your freshly assassinated bride. You’re always be accompanied by two companions. You spend some time killing large volumes of men, monsters and even myths in real-time combat.
Looking back on preview coverage from this and other sites, there seems to have been a lot of excitement from critics leading up to the release of Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy. After playing through it from start to finish, though, it's hard to understand why.
