Akane the Kunoichi (Xbox 360)

Akane the Kunoichi review (X360)

Reviewed on July 17, 2011

Akane is light, bite-sized and can be picked up and put down at will; this is appreciated. But that doesnít mean to say it wonít claw your face off and have you thank it for the maiming by the end.
B Team: Metal Cartoon Squad (DS)

B Team: Metal Cartoon Squad review (DS)

Reviewed on May 30, 2011

Hereís the thing; Iíve not played Cannon Fodder since the early nineties, but I still recall the stand out levels, the clever geography and can appreciate the more subtle parodying of the hells of war. In its attempt to revitalise an older way of thinking, all B Team has managed to do is highlight the competence of that it tries to ape and show that it still canít eclipse a game made almost two decades previous.
Shining Force II (Genesis)

Shining Force II review (GEN)

Reviewed on May 10, 2011

Thereís a reason why Iíve revisited Moun on an almost yearly basis, and beaten the hell out of goat-eared mages. And itís the same reason why Iíll meet up with FREYJA around the same time next year and do it all over again.
Raven Squad: Operation Hidden Dagger (PC)

Raven Squad: Operation Hidden Dagger review (PC)

Reviewed on May 02, 2011

I feel a bit guilty for panning anybodyís first effort, and my hope that a decent game can be made from this premise is genuine. But the only thing youíll find here is mounting disappointment and enough dropped balls to start a play pit with.
Alan Wake (Xbox 360)

Alan Wake review (X360)

Reviewed on April 26, 2011

What is Alan Wake? It's not survival horror: you regenerate health and have ammo bleeding out of your arse. Itís not psychological horror in that copy-and-pasting invites tedium, not terror. I like to think of it as a foundation, and dare Remedy to do better next time.
Beyond Good & Evil HD (Xbox 360)

Beyond Good & Evil HD review (X360)

Reviewed on April 23, 2011

The Live Arcade download is a perfect way for any of the too many people who missed out upon release to catch up. It has shiny new HD enhancements, and Christophe Hťralís fantastically atypical score is all the sharper. More to the point, itís an easy way to snag a great game without going outside. I hear thereís wolves out there.
Hydrophobia (Xbox 360)

Hydrophobia review (X360)

Reviewed on April 14, 2011

Thereís now enough going right to subtract from the things that go wrong in Hydrophobiaís increasingly damp world. Survivalists may want to get in on the action early while the genre-curious might want to hang on and see what the completed product can offer.
Epic Dungeon (Xbox 360)

Epic Dungeon review (X360)

Reviewed on March 31, 2011

Epic Dungeon does itself credit by showcasing the best elements from years of Rogue-liking, but then manages to stand out of the crowd by daring to be different. Successful runs can last a matter of hours, premature ones a matter of seconds, but thereís always reason to come back and try again.
Thunder Force II (Genesis)

Thunder Force II review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 15, 2011

The ideal world is a pipedream. The majority of Thunder Force II is rotten.
Mass Effect 2 (Xbox 360)

Mass Effect 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on February 24, 2011

If Iím struggling to record my thoughts on Mass Effect 2 itís because it excels on so many fronts and does so many things right that itís hard to settle on just one thing. So Iíll ramble in a word document instead, talk about a few things that caught in my mind and then reveal that Iíve hardly scratched the surface.
The Ball (PC)

The Ball review (PC)

Reviewed on February 06, 2011

Crimecraft: Bleedout (PC)

Crimecraft: Bleedout review (PC)

Reviewed on January 30, 2011

It has the chance to stand out from the crowd, to not be just another also-ran, but it would be unfair to say itís there right now. Should it continue down this path, its future looks promising.
Cthulhu Saves the World (Xbox 360)

Cthulhu Saves the World review (X360)

Reviewed on January 28, 2011

Thus begins the Old Oneís quest for backwards redemption -- defeating some evil so he can unleash a greater evil. Sulking along the sandy beach he arrived at, he rescues his first party member, a star-struck water-based healer who incorrectly paints Cthulhu as her rescuing knight, and stomps off to his first village where he undertakes such heroic tasks as Saving A Boyís Dog From A Cave.
ZP2KX: Zombies and Pterodactyls 20XX (Xbox 360)

ZP2KX: Zombies and Pterodactyls 20XX review (X360)

Reviewed on January 24, 2011

You could choose to mow them down with machine pistols or shotguns. With rocket launchers, plasma cannons or flare guns. With flamethrowers, assault rifles, proxy mines, grenade launchers or samurai swords. Railguns, icebeams, mini-nukes, souped-up pistols, golden guns or just a plain old kick to the head.
Xenon 2: Megablast (Genesis)

Xenon 2: Megablast review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 23, 2011

I respect Xenon 2 for the envelopes it pushed, but this doesnít qualify it for a free pass; it doesnít excuse its mistakes. Remember its innovations fondly, if you like, just donít revisit them. Thereís no reason to; no reward for your efforts. Just one final note from Bitmap Brothers saying ďBy the way? We know you cheated to get this far, and we hate you.Ē
Medal of Honor (PlayStation 3)

Medal of Honor review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 14, 2011

Medal of Honor can barely claim to being more than half a game, the half it does right, it excels. The other half isnít bad for a first attempt -- but thatís not really good enough, is it?
101-in-1 Sports Party Megamix (Wii)

101-in-1 Sports Party Megamix review (WII)

Reviewed on January 11, 2011

Iím simply going to present the facts. Nothing here works. Even with its budget title status, itís not worth the price of admission.
Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360)

Red Dead Redemption review (X360)

Reviewed on January 08, 2011

Youíll want to squeeze every second of life from Red Dead Redemption. Youíll do this because you know that, sooner or later, the game will end and youíll no longer be a part of its world. YouĎll want to elongate your stay. And John Marston will let you, because there might be someone out there somewhere he hasnít shot at yet.
Astonishia Story (PSP)

Astonishia Story review (PSP)

Reviewed on January 01, 2011

I canít help but think of Astonisha Story bravely treading water. It was never in its nature to be spectacular, but it could have settled with quietly competent had Ubisoft thrown it a life preserver rather than hurled rocks from the shore.
Kozu (Xbox 360)

Kozu review (X360)

Reviewed on December 18, 2010

Kozu is one of THOSE games that pop up on XBLA in droves; itís a duel stick shooter that we should really be more pissed at Geometry Wars for popularising. We could try really hard to pretend that Kozu isnít the latest contender in the homebrew developerís favourite genre choice, but your denial would have to be measured in galaxies to overcome the sheer volume of evidence to the contrary. So, letís not. Letís just talk about how Kozu is an okay little game, but not one to reach the loft heights preset by the likes of Z0MBIES and Zombie Estate.
