Splinter Cell Blacklist Premature Evaluations
By: John Tarr - Monday, August 26, 2013 - 11:42am

Splinter Cell Blacklist's single-player delivers an incredible challenge, and multiplayer's Spies vs Mercs mode is fun and unique, but can be extremely frustrating at times due to P2P hosting and zero skill-based matchmaking.

By: John Tarr - Wednesday, August 21, 2013 - 10:32am

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is now out for free worldwide for the iPhone and iPad. PvZ2 is an amazingly fun game with a ton of challenge, but some of the microtransactions available in-game, specifically having to pay $3.99 for Torchwood and $2.99 for the Imitater, have a big effect on the balance of the challenges.

By: Brian Majurinen - Tuesday, July 2, 2013 - 3:25pm

This game is a fairly generic, on-rails mobile FPS that has decent controls and is fun at times. At $2.99 you might not play the game long enough to get your money's worth.

By: John Tarr - Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 10:47am

Far Cry 3 is a surprisingly diverse game that should be on everybody's must play list.

Premature Evaluations: Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse
By: John Tarr - Wednesday, November 21, 2012 - 5:37pm

Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse has many similarities to The Simpsons Game; sub-par controls, graphics, mission design and gameplay, but TONS of fan service that will keep any fan of the show laughing.

Premature Evaluations - Hitman: Absolution
By: Dan Broadbent - Tuesday, November 20, 2012 - 11:39am

The fifth installment in the Hitman series is a great place to start. I thoroughly enjoyed playing Hitman: Absolution as my first Hitman experience. Great stealth, unique environments, tons of disguises, funny dialogue and awesome ways to kill people make it easy to recommend.
