Bioshock Infinite Review By Shawn Denney: Columbia is a brilliantly realized visual experience. The character animations are smooth and the art style is great. The blood effects looked more like paint than blood to me, especially during the melee kills but that very well could just be my expectations. One exceptional touch to the game was that each of the floating islands was on its own unique lift pattern. If firing from one to another you had to factor in the sway in order to hit. It reminded me a lot of the shipyard in Uncharted 3 in that particular manner. The sound work in the game is very well done. The voice acting is top notch, and the music was engaging.
Sly Cooper Thieves in Time Vita Review by Kenley Hall: I have always found the Sly series to be a fun and charming stealth platformer. With the switch to Sanzaru as the developer instead of Sucker Punch though I was worried, but my worries were proven wrong for the most part. Sly Cooper Thieves in Time is overall a fun, charming game, that brings you back to a time when gritty shooters had not yet covered the market and cartoon platformers were still commonplace. Well now that we have the backstory out of the way lets dive into the review.
Tomb Raider Review By MikeTGZA:
When I picked up Tomb Raider for the first time, I hadn’t read any reviews on it, I just knew that it was a reboot of the franchise and that the cover art looked awesome. I was expecting a pretty average platforming/puzzle solving game with a bit of action mixed in, based on what I had heard about the previous titles in the series. Man, was I wrong. Tomb Raider starts off with a brief cinematic introduction showing Lara, the player character, on a ship. In typical adventure game fashion, the situation soon goes south and the ship is wrecked off the coast of an island. Lara manages to swim to shore, but is knocked unconscious by a mysterious figure as she tries to call her friends for help.
Uncharted Golden Abyss Review By Kenley Hall: The 1st portable entry in the Uncharted series had a pretty big legacy to live up to. For the most part Sony Bend succeeds at matching this legacy. There are a few hiccups here and there but it is overall a fun game. Now lets dive into the review.
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask Review By Kenley Hall: The 2nd entry in the Prequel Trilogy of Layton games, and 1st for the 3DS.

Could this be the best Layton yet? Let’s find out.
