If you take a look at Dungeon Keeper on Android you will find plenty of 4 and 5 star reviews for what should be a great game from Electronic Arts. Taking a look at all the ratings the game has, you would think it was the next best thing since sliced bread. However taking a little closer of a look at these ratings and how they have come about and you might think differently.

Electronic Arts has pushed out an update for their Plants vs Zombies 2 game that brings with it the brains behind the zombie invasion, Dr. Zomboss. You’ll be able to meet up with Dr. Zomboss in an all-new Ancient Egypt level where you’ll have to get together your plant troops and take him down.
Electronic Arts has decided to push the Monopoly brand just a little bit more today by releasing two new Monopoly themed casino games onto Android. One is Monopoly Bingo while the other new game is Monopoly slots, both of which are available for download off of Google Play for free.
EA has plenty of franchises in their catalog of games for a variety of platforms but their main FPS franchise called Battlefield is one that the company has big plans for in the near future. These plans pertain to bringing the franchise to mobile but it isn’t just about bringing a port of the game over. It’s also about having it ‘inter-operate’ with the game on other platforms as well, making it a true cross-platform mobile game. This is a trend we have been seeing lately as this is at least the third game in about a week that we’ve talked about heading our way that will contain cross-platform multiplayer with its PC/console brethren.
Electronic Arts has decided that it is time to release another football game and today is the day that Madden 25 has been released onto the Google Play store. In celebration of the release of this game, EA has also put Madden Cash on sale as well with a 25% off of the regular price that you would pay for Madden Cash.
Electronic Arts held their press event announcing plenty of gaming information as one would expect to see at these events. One of the mobile related tidbits of information to come out of the press conference was that the upcoming Need for Speed: Rivals game will feature cross-platform multiplayer gameplay but not in the traditional sense.
Following in the footsteps of Gameloft’s recent announcement regarding how many of their games will be supporting Samsung’s new Galaxy S4 phone, EA has made a similar announcement today stating that 16 of their games are already ‘enhanced’ and compatible with the Galaxy S4.
Electronic Arts has started up their annual Sweet Deals sales event for Easter and while most of the benefit, at least right now, is for gamers on iOS devices. Android gamers do have some deals that they can take advantage of should you be looking to pick up a few deals.
It a rather interesting twist today, EA’s CEO John Riccitiello has officially submitted his resignation to EA’s board of directors, with his last day being March 30th, 2013. His resignation is for his position as CEO of the company as well as his spot on the board of directors, both of which will end at the end of March. Larry Probst has been appointed as executive chairman temporarily and has released a public statement.
I downloaded Real Racing 3 by game giant EA in the hopes of enjoying a bit of “real” racing. Usually every racing title I experience is cartoony or over-the-top, and I was in the mood for a game that made me feel more, I don’t know, real. The game cost nothing so I had no excuse to try it out. We’ve talked about it on the site before but I was eager to see just what all of the fuss (much of which I found out about later) was about. Being that EA had recently ran into more drama than they could possibly ever want when Sim City’s servers blew up, I was even more eager to see how they fared in the mobile market. I normally skip their games and go for Gameloft when I want a larger, shinier title.
