Burger Shop 2 Review



It's safe to say that if you liked Burger Shop, you're going to love Burger Shop 2. The fast-paced assembly-line time management game is just as fun as the original and, like any good sequel, expands on the formula with additional levels and fun new twists like extra dishes, characters and trophies.

At the end of the first game you were on top of the world thanks to the BurgerTron 2000 machine, but by the start of Burger Shop 2 your restaurant empire is in shambles - and you don't know why. All you know is that you woke up one morning in a dumpster with a bump on your head to find that all your restaurants have been shut down and boarded up. When a shady character appears and offers to sell it all back to you for a dollar, you take him up on it. As you retrace your steps to try to find out what went wrong, you'll also rebuild each of your eight restaurants back up to their former glory. Read more

Slingo Supreme Review



I hesitate using the word "addicting" when talking about iPhone games anymore, as it's a pretty tired cliché, but I can't think of a better way to describe the new iPhone game Slingo Supreme. I use the term “new” loosely, asSlingo itself has been around since the mid-nineties, but is new to the iPhone platform. Many gamers will probably remember playing Slingo on AOL back when your 28.8k modem was the hotness. I remember the game from back then, but somehow managed never to have played it until this iPhone iteration. The game evolved a lot since the first release from 1995, andSlingo Supreme for iPhone is based on the PC game of the same name from 2008. Read more

Cooking Dash 3: Thrills & Spills Review



A couple of years ago, casual game developer PlayFirst evolved its uber-popular Diner Dash franchise, adding actual food preparation on top of waitressing duties. The new game was called Cooking Dash, and it offered Diner Dash fans (myself included) a more challenging and ultimately more satisfying time management gameplay experience. The second Cooking Dash game didn't change much from the first game, but Cooking Dash 3: Thrills & Spills has added so many new features, it's the best Dash game to be released thus far. Read more

LEGO City Undercover Review



Lego City Undercover is a joyful open-world romp for players of all ages.

The Good

  • Witty writing and characters keep you giggling throughout
  • The lure of Lego studs and collectables is hard to resist
  • Endlessly varied and entertaining missions and puzzles
  • Different disguises make for lots of diversity
  • Great use of the GamePad.

The Bad

  • Inconsistent jumping
  • Unsatisfying combat
  • Exceptionally long load times.

With Lego City Undercover, developer Traveller's Tales has distilled the concept of "fun" into its purest essence and poured it liberally over a city already overflowing with wit and charm. Read more
