LEGO The Hobbit Review

I told my son we couldn’t start on our LEGO The Hobbit review playthrough until he finished his supper and got in his pajamas. I swear I have never seen that kid eat or move so fast, which is perhaps the best compliment I could ever offer to ...

Cut the Rope: Triple Treat Review

There is a fundamental problem, I find, with releasing the same game on both touchscreen devices, like phones and tablets, and on handheld gaming machines like the Nintendo 3DS. It’s not so much how the game plays, because the latest portables ...

The LEGO Movie Videogame Review

The LEGO Movie throws a whole lot at the screen, with new heroes and villains, multiple locations, familiar faces, and billions and billions of LEGO bricks. Because of its brisk pace, what the movie lacked was the ability to really explore these new ...

Halo: Spartan Assault Review

I’m not sure anyone ever asked the question “What if Halo was an old-school twin-stick shooter?” but Halo: Spartan Assault is the answer. While it won’t make Halo fans stop longing for Halo 5, Halo: Spartan Assault does offer ...

NES Remix Review

The idea behind NES Remix is an interesting one, taking a number of classic Nintendo Entertainment System games and breaking them down into small micro-challenges or adding special conditions with a WarioWare-esque rapid fire pace. While it ...

Wii Fit U Side Lunge

Wii Fit U Review

The original Wii Fit game was a big-selling sensation, though I would go out on a limb and say that it was more due to the included Balance Board peripheral and limited availability driving the hype machine into overdrive. As a fairly active person, ...

Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Review

As a Canadian, I’m kind of hardwired to enjoy the Winter Olympics, which I think is why I ended up really liking Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. It’s not the greatest party game, nor does it always succeed at ...

I don’t think anyone would have said this six months ago, but at the end of the year, the best next generation title on the Xbox One will be Zoo Tycoon. Sorry Call of Duty, Assassins’ Creed, Forza, and the piles of dead barbarians, but ...

Girls’ Fashion Shoot Review

We’ve never been big fans of girl dress up games like Girls’ Fashion Shoot here at GamerPops. Quite frankly, we think girls deserve better than being pigeonholed into games where they are slaves to fashion, and looking cute and being popular are ...

When Jeff and I played last year’s Ben 10 Omniverse, we had pretty low expectations, but were pleasantly surprised by an enjoyably colourful brawler, rather than the cheap and uninspired licensed game we were expecting. Turns out we were just ...
