Ubisoft’s Open-World Shooter Dazzles With High Adventure In the Himalayas The Far Cry series, while generally being well regarded over the course of its three main entries, hasn't stuck to a particular formula when it comes to story or mechanics. Each game is set in a postcard-worthy open-world setting, and allows you the freedom to approach objectives with tactics of your choosing, but little else carries over from title to title.

Game Review: 'Dragon Age: Inquisition'

"Dragon Age: Inquisition"

BioWare’s Lord of the Rings Style Epic Impresses Dragon Age: Inquisition’s predecessors – Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II – represent two separate visions of the franchise.

However, the more I let go of the idea of what it should be, the more I could enjoy it for what it is. Unity i... more

Game Review: ‘Bayonetta 2’

A couple of weeks ago, I lamented the backslide of Japanese game development, pointing out how much it has fallen behind western standards. After spending the weekend playing my Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, I'm more than happy to eat those words. While there's still plenty of disappointing games coming out of Japan ("The Evil Within" immediately springs to mind), a few Japanese developers have been brea... more
