Review: Team Sonic Racing

by Mazen Abdallahon July 8, 2019
At first glance, Sonic All-Stars Team Racing Transformed may seem like it’s just a response to Mario Kart. But anyone who has played the classic kart racer can attest to the fact that Sega did a great job giving Sonic’s racing game it’s proper due. The title had its own identity and mechanics and was […]

Review: NBA 2K Playgrounds 2

by Nazih Fareson November 14, 2018
A year after its first launch, Saber Interactive went heavy on working on the sequel for its NBA Jam spiritual successor: NBA Playgrounds. Right before its planned launch earlier this year, the game was delayed for no reason, until we discovered that Take-Two picked up the title as its publisher, expanding its NBA 2K franchise […]

Review: Regular Human Basketball

by Mazen Abdallahon September 9, 2018
One of my favourite things about gaming is the fact that it brings us together. Gaming can be a very social experience, and games often unite us in that experience. We sit around the TV or meet up online and we tackle the objectives together. The co-op has always been a very big part of […]


Review: INK

by Mazen Abdallahon August 1, 2018
As I mention frequently on here, platformers need a gimmick or a sort of universal selling point. The platforming core remains fairly consistent, but there needs to be a – no pun intended – game changer. In the case of INK, the game changer is the color mechanic. Essentially, you don’t really ‘see’ the level, […]

Review: Hotel Transylvania 3: Monsters Overboard

Whenever a publisher launches a licensed game based on a movie, instinctively we know that there is a lot of chance that it is going to be a gamble. Think about it for a moment: E.T.? Superman 64? How about Dragon Ball Evolution? But then again you have some really good ones like The Lord of the […]

Review: Aces of the Luftwaffe – Squadron

by Nazih Fareson July 28, 2018
When it comes to video games and other forms of media like movies and books, I love it when stories tell different take on historical events and tales. That’s mainly why I’m a big fan of the Assassin’s Creed series, really dig the Wolfenstein games, and in general enjoy any history-themed or influenced game. Aces […]


Review: Lumines Remastered

by Nazih Fareson June 26, 2018
Throughout gaming history, each portable console has always a simple game with an addictive concept, based on the stacking bricks somehow. The Game Boys had Tetris, the Game Gear had Columns and the PlayStation Portable had Lumines in 2005. The latter’s success was such a hit, that it was quickly ported on different platforms, and […]

Review: Runner3

by Mazen Abdallahon May 29, 2018
The Bit.Trip series is one of the oldest and most noteworthy series in gaming, and it’s spawned a handful of unique, simple, and colorful games that mix bright colors and pixels with finger-crushing hardness. One of the titles, Bit.Trip Runner, spun off into its own series and now we have Runner3. Runner didn’t just spin […]

Review: Double Kick Heroes

by Mazen Abdallahon April 27, 2018
When I was growing up, like a lot of dorky kids, I was super into heavy metal. It wasn’t just the music; it was the whole aesthetic and lifestyle. The brotherhood of metal, the headbanging, etc. I loved all things metal, and I wanted to immerse myself in the culture as much as possible. This […]
