Has the brilliant mind of Sherlock Holmes finally snapped? Find out in the stunningly written puzzle game, _The Testament of Sherlock Holmes_. Some iffy graphics only slightly hinder an otherwise brilliant entry in Frogware's ongoing series centered on Doyle's eccentric detective.
While great stories don't necessarily have to end, they do have to start from somewhere. _The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword_ tells the story of the original Link and Zelda, setting the stage for all the titles which gamers have come to know and love over the years. Nintendo nails the motion controls, offering an engaging gameplay experience that will delight gamers both new and familiar with the series. With richly developed characters, beautiful music and artistic design, and the franchise's trademark sense of humor, gamers young and old will be delighted when playing what is arguably the best full release title available on the Wii today.
Moving far away from its survival horror roots, _Resident Evil 6_ offers a more blockbuster action approach to the iconic series. It's definitely not what gamers are used to, but a fun game nevertheless with exciting combat and plenty of deep gaming avenues to explore.
Survival horror enthusiasts and sandbox explorers alike should be rejoicing that Deep Silver has created the fictional island of Banoi. The title role in the hit game _Dead Island_ is home to a beautiful, tropical beach resort...and a jungle full of cannibals...and a high-security prison...oh, and did we mention, a ravenous undead horde? With a deep weapon crafting mechanic, a massive selection of varied quests, and a huge island to explore, be prepared to wade into the zombie masses with machetes flailing. Though the game may be light on story and exposition, _Dead Island_ is big on everything else. With the recent release of the Game of the Year Edition (which includes both the Blood Bath Arena and the extra chapter focusing on the main game's antagonist), there's never been a better time to book your vacation to Banoi, whether you're going for the first time or making a return trip.
