Game: Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:44 PM)
Sometimes I think that there is a tendency for developers to overlook some of the tried and tested genres in an attempt to appear all cutting edge. In the case of Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom I suppose this fact actually works in its favour as there is not exactly an abundance of hack n slash fighting games with which it needs to compete for attention. I understand that when it comes to creating games these days it is a big budget operation so developers need to do their best to stand out from...

Game: Super Stardust HD (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:43 PM)
I realise that this game has been on the PSN for ages now, so I might be a little behind the times in writing a review for it. That said; I believe that this is still the best PSN download available and if there is anyone out there who has yet to get a copy then a little more convincing won’t go a miss. In fact Housemarque’s 3D shooter has now been around since June 2007 and I am itching for the updates promised in the games online store feature.

Game: Resistance: Fall of Man (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:41 PM)
Resistance was one the Playstation 3’s launch titles and it is pretty much a given that most early adopters of the system will already have a copy of this in their games collection. With the fact that the game is now coming up to its first birthday and the impending release of a sequel it is likely that this game will find itself among the first batch of Playstation 3 platinum titles. This has yet to be confirmed; as in fact has the existence of platinum games altogether. Taking into account ...

Game: Ratchet & Clank: Future (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:40 PM)
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is the latest in the Ratchet and Clank series of games from Insomniac. Exclusive to Sony the series has already seen three successful outings on the PS2 and one on the PSP. Tools of Destruction is the first game in the series to appear on the PS3 and, despite the change in platform, sticks to the tried and tested formula of the previous four games.

Game: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:38 PM)
Oblivion is the most recent game in Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls series; a series which can trace its roots way back to the 1994 PC game Elder Scrolls: Arena. Since that time the games remained solely PC based until the recent Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind which was released on both the PC and Xbox. Oblivion is the first in the series to be released on any Playstation and you only have to read any of the related reviews to realise what a great success it has been.

Game: Heavenly Sword (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:37 PM)
Heavenly Sword is the hotly anticipated sword fighting game from Ninja Theory which was released exclusively on PS3 on 12/09/2007. The game plays in a very similar fashion to Ninja Gaiden Sigma, for any of you who have already played that and enjoyed it. If you open the controls menu the list of available attacks and their often long winded button press combinations will certainly look familiar. If you mastered Sigma then you should certainly have no problems here. There are, however, a numb...

Game: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:36 PM)
Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, despite its misleading title is the fourth game in the Guitar Hero series. The previous three games were all released on the PS2 and were developed by Harmonix Music Systems. Guitar Hero 3, however, has been developed by Neversoft instead and has been released across an impressive array of platforms; PS3, PS2, Wii, Xbox, PC and Mac. Having played the previous Guitar Hero games on PS2 I can assure you that there has been little changed about the game despite the...

Game: Go! Puzzle (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:35 PM)
Go! Puzzle is not one game in fact but three; Aquatica, Swizzle Blocks and Skyscraper. Each of these games can be downloaded from the PSN store individually or, for a slight reduction in overall price, as a pack of three. I won’t, as I haven’t in previous reviews, include the prices here as these vary between regional stores and occasionally over time. All I can suggest is that, if you are interested, you go and take a look. Go on, it won’t take long.

Game: flOw (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:34 PM)
I am struggling to come up with a game category in which to accurately place Flow and the more I think about it the less I believe that Flow is really a game at all. It is more of an experience I guess; released during the infancy of the Playstation 3 to give us an idea of what the machine is capable of. It isn’t graphically astounding and it hardly pushes the system to its limits but perhaps it was designed with another reason in mind; to demonstrate that the Playstation 3 doesn’t want to fol...

Game: Enchanted Arms (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:33 PM)
There are not enough RPGs available on the PS3 for my taste at the moment and when I got my hands on a copy of Ubisoft’s Enchanted Arms I hoped that it would fill this unwelcome gap in my collection. In the end though I am afraid it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Don’t get me wrong, the game is not without its good points but overall it was not the next-gen experience that I was hoping for. Initially I was pleased to see that the game mimics the Final Fantasy style that I like so mu...

Game: Burnout Paradise (PlayStation 3)
Posted: April 14, 2008 (03:32 PM)
Traditionally I am not a massive fan of driving games and I fail to get excited about the likes of Gran Turismo despite its impressive graphics and wealth of options. It all smacks a little too much of simulation to me and tuning up my suspension not only confuses me but bores me to death. Thankfully EA made the wise move of releasing a demo of Burnout Paradise on the PSN. If they hadn’t it is very likely I would have missed out on a truly amazing game.
