Game Review: ‘Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!’

borderlands the pre sequel

Like dozens of other video games, "Borderlands" is all about killing — people, robots, monsters, whatever. But "Borderlands" has a not-so-secret weapon in its arsenal: an acidic sense of black humor that's a welcome relief from the gung-ho war-is-hell cliches of competitors like "Call of Duty" and "Halo." In 2012's "Borderlands 2," the source of most of the comedy was Handsome Jack, the sarcastic yet charming villa... more

Game Review: ‘The Evil Within’

In the video-game world, Shinji Mikami's name has the same cachet that George Romero and Wes Craven have among moviegoers. Mikami created "Resident Evil," the 1996 classic usually credited as the first "survival horror" game.

Is "Isolation" that bone-chilling and nerve-wracking? Not quite, but it does deliver some thrills. It takes place 15 years after the event... more

Game Review: 'Skylanders Trap Team’

skylanders trap team

There's a peculiar kind of tension at work in Activision's wildly successful Skylanders series. If you just want a dozen or so hours of fun, with fast-paced action and an amusing story, a $75 starter pack will get the job done. But if you want to see every little thing packed into a Skylanders game, be prepared to spend a couple hundred dollars more on additional toys. "Skylanders Trap Team" (for the... more
