Videogame reviews are a strange and fascinating blend of the subjective and the objective, of facts and opinions that must be crushed together into a cohesive whole that explains to the reader how the author felt about the game and why he or she arrived at their […]
The latest issue of Xbox World magazine contains within its hallowed pages a host of reviews, including The Darkness II and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, both of which managed to claim great scores. So, what shiny numbers did the magazine hand out and what did they have to say about […]
