Review: Umbrella Corps

In Review by Fusionx

When Umbrella Corps was first announced I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. A competitive shooter in the world of Resident Evil? After the mixed reception earned by Operation Raccoon City, I couldn’t help myself but think it likely that this game would follow the same path. Were my thoughts on point? Or was I not giving the game I had yet to play enough credit? Let’s take a look and see!

Review: Just Cause 3

In Review by FireMarth
