Review: Vanquish (PC)

t was way back in 2010 when Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami's Vanquish slide-boosted its way onto the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but today (May 25, 2017) SEGA has re-released the game on PC for a new generation to finally enjoy. Following the success of Bayonetta’s recent PC port, how does this other PlatinumGames-developed… Review: Vanquish (PC) Review: Vanquish (PC) 2017-05-25 Graham Cookson QUICK …

Review: Ghost Blade HD (PS4)

While the Saturn may be the undisputed king of shooters, shmups, bullet hell games or whatever you want to call them, its successor is no slouch in that department either. Indeed, the Dreamcast is home to many notable examples of its own, some of which were spawned by the indie… Review: Ghost Blade HD (PS4) Review: Ghost Blade HD (PS4) …

Review: Yakuza 0

If you had told me a year ago that I would be eagerly anticipating the release of the next Yakuza game, I'd have called you a filthy liar.

Review: Persona 4: Golden

ersona 4 was released on PlayStation 2 back in 2008, during a time when Sony was transitioning from the PS2 to the PlayStation 3. Because of this, it failed to catch on with the larger gaming audience and not many got a chance to play it. Thankfully, with the release Persona 4: Golden… Review: Persona 4: Golden Review: Persona 4: Golden 2016-12-13 Alex …

Review: Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice (3DS)

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Title

he Sonic Boom series has not been very well received, historically. Rise of Lyric on the Wii U was unanimously detested, and its 3DS counterpart Shattered Crystal didn't fair much better critically. I made a very conscious choice to leave Sonic Boom's reputation behind me and check my expectations at the… Review: Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice (3DS) Review: Sonic Boom: …

Review – Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, a unique perspective

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice releases later this month, but as it so happens, we here at SEGA Nerds never did a formal review of the original 3DS Sonic Boom title- Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal. I personally blame Chris for this oversight. Anyway… The problem now is that you’ve likely seen everything you need to know about whether Shattered Crystal …

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X (PS4)

Project Diva X

right colors, anime eyes, an endless wardrobe and maddeningly catchy J-Pop: This must be Hatsune Miku. Project Diva X, which marks the digital idol's debut on North American PlayStation 4s (and her return to the Vita). While it's a solid mix of old and new for series fans, it also serves as a totally… Review: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X (PS4) Review: Hatsune Miku: …

The King of Fighters XIV

Review: D (Saturn)

Kenji Eno wasn't afraid to take risks. His company, WARP, embraced controversy. They were eager to experiment, bending genres as they saw fit. Strangely, their first title, D, didn't showcase much of their trademark controversy or originality. The gameplay was simple, the story thin and the scares cheap. With Night… Review: D (Saturn) Review: D (Saturn) 2016-08-18 VirtuaDrew QUICK LOOK …

Retro Review: Galactic Attack/RayForce (Saturn)

Taito. Just hearing the name of this classic game manufacturer brings back tons of memories in my mind. From their early efforts, such as Bubble Bobble and Rastan, to the newer stuff like Darius Gaiden and Puzzle Bobble/Bust-A-Move, Taito's presence has long been felt in the game industry, but perhaps their biggest impact was in the arcades. For me, I… Retro Review: Galactic Attack/RayForce (Saturn) Retro Review: Galactic Attack/RayForce (Saturn) …
