Game: Cannon Fodder (Miscellaneous)
Posted: July 24, 2008 (09:35 AM)
Sensible Software took soccer and made it slick, speedy and easy to pick up and play, resulting in the cult classic Sensible Soccer. Using the same mechanics they turned their attention to warfare. Strip away a soccer pitch and replace it with a maze of trees; replace match day kits with uniforms and swap the away team for a gun totting army, and you have Cannon Fodder. While the genre and aims are nothing alike, it is just as attractive and addictive as their accomplished take on ...

Game: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 (Xbox 360)
Posted: June 14, 2008 (02:00 PM)
For a few of us, the end of Rainbow Six: Vegas left a bad taste in the mouth; a sudden cliff hanger that provided little satisfaction or resolution. For everyone else, it was just a side commentary to combine smoldering action set pieces together, or was forgotten altogether due to the compelling multiplayer. In either case, it was an excuse for a sequel; one that is not quite a fully fledged evolution of the franchise, or something that could have simply add-on content either.

Game: George of the Jungle and the Search for the Secret (Wii)
Posted: June 12, 2008 (12:04 PM)
Despite being an initially promising platformer, its charm is spoiled by pointless motion control, absent collision detection and unforgiving enemy encounters.

Game: GRID (Xbox 360)
Posted: June 07, 2008 (12:20 PM)
Imagine being able to reverse time and have a second chance at something - a misspoken comment, a rubbish exam, a failed date - wouldn’t that be pretty handy? Codemasters allows your Groundhog Day fantasies to come true in Race Driver: GRID, where you can not only write off beautiful cars by ploughing them into equally beautiful surroundings, but you can do it over and over again.

Game: Mario Kart Wii (Wii)
Posted: April 21, 2008 (08:45 AM)
Love it or hate it, you have to respect the Mario Kart franchise. Spanning six systems, arcade units, remote controlled cars and widely known as the epitome of multiplayer racing, the series makes a welcome return to the Nintendo Wii. The motley crew of characters and weapons make an appearance along with the recent DS additions of online and retro throwbacks. While Mario Kart Wii adds a few more additions and changes, such as a new control scheme, changes to the drifting system, motorbikes and ...

Game: Turning Point: Fall of Liberty (Xbox 360)
Posted: March 28, 2008 (04:32 PM)
When Turning Point: Fall of Liberty was announced it got a warm response due to its refreshing alternative-future take on the stagnating WWII shooter genre. The game has a rather harrowing alternative indeed - Winston Churchill gets killed by getting run down by a taxi in 1931 in a United States trip, and by the time the Germans knock on Britain's door in WWII the lack of morale and leadership he would have offered led to the demise of Blighty, as well as the rest of Europe, Russia and Africa al...

Game: Professor Layton and the Curious Village (DS)
Posted: March 25, 2008 (10:28 AM)
Imagine a place where instead of going down the pub for a pint and pig snacks, you'd rather have your brain smashed by a perplexing puzzle than a pool cue, and that a test of a man's will is not a gun duel at dawn or glove slap to the face but by solving mind bending puzzles. Welcome to St. Mystere! Professor Layton and his happy-go-lucky assistant Luke are called into town to help settle an inheritance dispute, but gets tied up with a various other mysteries along the way including a murder, st...

Game: Poker Smash (Xbox 360)
Posted: March 02, 2008 (10:01 AM)
Everyone loves poker - the bluffing, that chance of getting a great hand, going all in, the waiting? Imagine throwing that all out of the window yet in a backward sense sticking to what makes it great. Poker Smash is a puzzle game for the Xbox Live Arca- wait, before you stop reading and are convinced this is just another port of an internet puzzle game, then you are in for a surprise. Where were we? Ah yes, Poker Smash by Void Star Creations is a puzzle game akin to Planet Puzzle League, but wi...

Game: Crimson Room (DS)
Posted: February 26, 2008 (06:27 AM)
A majority of frequent internet users (gamers in particular) has played, or at least heard of the Crimson Room series of flash “escape-the-room” games by Toshimitsu Takagi. Hosted on approximately four trillion flash gaming websites, you play a character who awakens within a room and has to use household items littered about or deceptively hidden as a means to escape. Such a simple premise has a catch, and that is the difficulty – or simply the absurdity of the solutions and item placements. Pan...

Game: Geometry Wars: Galaxies (DS)
Posted: February 26, 2008 (06:26 AM)
I'm not a fan of Geometry Wars. It was a fun premise that did not grip me - neither on the Marketplace or in PGR – a game that seemed to lack any real structure beyond ‘blow stuff up to get a high score'. But for some bizarre reason I've given this game a seven. Why the hell would I do that?

Game: Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (DS)
Posted: February 18, 2008 (12:05 PM)
What do you do when the world is devastated by meteorites? Band together the survivors and work toward resurrecting civilization? Nope - you keep on fighting, duh! The game has a crack at this untested scenario in the latest iteration of the Advance Wars series. Gone are the cute and cuddly tanks that would not look out of place at a kids birthday party; missing, presumed dead are the old COs (not Andy! I hear you scream in terror) and in its place is a bleak and barren world, effectively brough...

Game: Project Gotham Racing 4 (Xbox 360)
Posted: December 18, 2007 (06:56 AM)
After a debatably rushed PGR3 Bizarre Creations have pulled out all the stops to ensure that their final title under Microsoft is their greatest. The Project Gotham series has prided itself on being a self styled ‘kudos racer', where how you drive is what sets you apart from your opponents and indeed other racing titles. Promising new innovative features such as weather and motorbikes, it aims to be the true successor PGR2 deserved.

Game: Picross DS (DS)
Posted: December 18, 2007 (06:55 AM)
Picross is a surprisingly veteran puzzle series, one that has spanned Nintendo consoles since the days of the Game Boy and SNES, and has now touched down on the DS under the guise of the Touch Generations series for the system. With the uncontrolled explosion of crossword and sudoku titles for the handheld, can Picross provide enough incentive for gamers to pick up, learn and adore yet another puzzle game? Do the DS features give it enough reason for existing fans to invest time and money into a...

Game: Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
Posted: December 18, 2007 (06:55 AM)
A Nintendo console just isn't complete without a flagship Mario title. The Wii has had few stunning single player experiences to boast about, and who else to deliver than the king of platforming himself, Sir Mario of Mario? With little surprises in terms of plot, he returns once again in an adventure that is simply out of this world.
