Type: Review Game: Elemix! (Game Boy Advance) Posted: January 08, 2011 (10:34 PM)
Elemix! is a Japanese import action RPG that some might compare to a 2D Zelda game. It has a colourful graphics style slightly reminiscent of a GBA Zelda, a top-down viewpoint, and a health indicator in the form of hearts on the top left of the screen. But the one area Elemix! excels in is its remarkably simple pick-up-and-play approach, and this is despite the language barrier. The game is a series of nine short self-contained stages. There isn't an overworld ...
Type: Review Game: FIFA Soccer 11 (Xbox 360) Posted: December 04, 2010 (12:47 PM)
FIFA 11 retains all of what made FIFA 10's engine great, apart from making penalties more of a bother than they need to be, but a lack of meaningful improvements, particularly in its game modes, means that it feels like I'm paying full price mostly just for updated rosters and kits.
Type: Review Game: Rock Band 3 (Xbox 360) Posted: November 08, 2010 (10:04 PM)
One of the biggest complaints about simulated rock has been that jamming with plastic instruments just isn’t the same as playing a real instrument. For me, that’s missing the point; these sorts of games have always been more about having pure and utter fun. But Harmonix has spent the last two years addressing this, and while the basic premise of Rock Band 3 has a familiar feel to it--play a bunch of songs until you become a superstar--it's also the most innovative and complete rhythm game...
Alpha Protocol is a riveting espionage third-person shooter/RPG hybrid that sees field agent Michael Thorton travel across the world – Saudi Arabia, Moscow, Rome, and Taipei – to unearth a conspiracy that could have devastating global consequences. To say anything more specific about the story could be detrimental to your enjoyment, so here are three things that the game absolutely excels at:
Type: Review Game: Super Street Fighter IV (Xbox 360) Posted: June 12, 2010 (09:59 AM)
The original Street Fighter IV was already a great fighting game. Featuring 25 different characters, including fan favourites like Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li, it brought the Street Fighter series to the modern day with luscious 3D environments (despite the game still being played on a 2D plane) and tweaks to the fighting system. Though it was simple enough for a beginner to jump into and enjoy – special moves, as always, were generally easy to perform from Ryu’s trademark Hadouken fireb...
Type: Review Game: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom (Xbox 360) Posted: February 24, 2010 (07:39 AM)
The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom has plenty of personality. The black-and-white, grainy silent movie-look, the playful rhyming blurbs before each puzzle, and the eponymous protagonist who has a mighty obsession with pie--all of this combines well to create a charmingly distinct title, not just on the Xbox Live Arcade marketplace but on all platforms. It is more than that, though; it is also a puzzle game with some rather unique mechanics.
