Whenever there's a movie tie-in game that comes out, some groan while some go "huh?" when you ask them about it. However, whether longtime fans like it or not, the Transformers films is now at its fourth in the series and still selling tickets. It's also par for course that ...

There are some games where you get to fulfill your Nazi-killing sharpshooting fantasies with your trusty sniper rifle, kind of like in the movie Enemy at the Gates. For those who don't think that sniping is the way of cowards and spineless wimps, as well as those who are more ...

It seems that there has been so many games about WWII, but not enough about WWI due to many factors. For one thing, the second one seems to be the more well-known one as it truly was a world war that encompassed most parts of the globe, while the first ...

Puzzle platformers aren't really for everyone as some don't like either puzzle games or platformers, so combining the two genres make for rather head-scratching gameplay for them. But for those who do like both, then this sub-genre seems to be a treasure trove full of wonderful titles like Escape Goat, ...

Something that Capcom likes to do all of the time is to release several iterations of the same game, especially when it comes to Street Fighter. Street Fighter II had what eventually became Super Street Fighter II Turbo (known to fans as Super Turbo). While it's frustrating for some who ...

If there ever is a game that shows just how powerful pre-release marketing really is, Watch Dogs is certainly it. The teaser trailers had gamers drooling over the open-world shoot-and-hack premise and the gorgeous next-gen HD graphics. It then got delayed from late 2013 to mid 2014, and succeeding trailers ...

City-building simulators have had a spotty history in recent years, especially with the release of the critically-panned SimCity last year and not much else.
