Summer has officially started! Let's celebrate by staying inside and reading community reviews!

Review: Lollipop Chainsaw
By Isaac Federspiel

"Some games are great because they tell a mesmerizing story, some are recognized as being artistic, and others inspire a change in the industry. Lollipop Chainsaw does none of these but is enjoyable based solely on how bizarre it is." This excerpt from the end of Isaac's review sums it up nicely.

Review: Max Payne 3 is the perfect case study for Murphy's law
By Giancarlo Valdes

Max Payne is not a lucky a guy, so Giancarlo's title is apt. Still, Max's misfortune is our pleasure, as he finds plenty to like about this new third-person shooter from Rockstar. I just hope that you're not squeamish about a few hundred exploding heads.

Gransys is only kind of grand: Dragon Dogma's review
By Seth Christmus

Gransys is the fantasy world where Dragon Dogma's takes place. It's OK. I didn't know, either. Anyway, Seth enjoyed this Japanese attempt at a Western-styled role-playing game; although, he does have some issues he hopes developer/publisher Capcom would address in a sequel.


Team Fortress 2 review
By Kyle Corke

It's been awhile since I read a review for Team Fortress 2. Heck, I haven't read real critism of the team-based shooter since before it had hats. Luckily, according to Kyle, the game is still fantastic! Good. I'm glad developer Valve hasn't ruined it since the last time I played.

PlayStation Vita: Uncharted: Golden Abyss review
By Errol Burke-Horner

I'm a pretty big fan of developer Naughty Dog's Uncharted series, and while I still find a lot to like about Golden Abyss (a prequel for the portable Vita system made by Sony's Bend Studio), I have to agree with Errol that isn't quite up to the series' standards.
