Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360)

Halo 3: ODST review (X360)

Reviewed on August 31, 2010

It’s an adventuresome idea, but not one that works completely. ODST is, before anything else, largely competent and achieves most of what it sets out to do. The Halo lore is still very much intact, but the insertion of a new protagonist gives the game a new sheen: one of vulnerability.
Worms (Xbox 360)

Worms review (X360)

Reviewed on August 16, 2010

Team 17 once did their level best to jump the shark, but, as seems to be the trend these days, have established a series reboot, travelled right back to their humble beginnings and rediscovered the magic all over again.
Clover: A Curious Tale (PC)

Clover: A Curious Tale review (PC)

Reviewed on August 09, 2010

Clover wraps itself up in uniqueness: its hand-drawn presentation initially promise a light and cheery game, then it forces you to peek into the shadows and, by the time you reach the ultimately sobering conclusion, you’ve found the murky darkness has suck up around you. You’re drowning in it. And there’s no longer anything you can do but despair.
Sam & Max: Beyond the Alley of the Dolls (PC)

Sam & Max: Beyond the Alley of the Dolls review (PC)

Reviewed on July 31, 2010

Its grounding doesn’t lend it the ambition of the first two chapters, but the tight writing and dedication to shovelling hilarity and mindless violence into gaping plotholes makes up for many of its shortcomings.
Breath of Death VII: The Beginning (Xbox 360)

Breath of Death VII: The Beginning review (X360)

Reviewed on July 24, 2010

Breath of Death VII is one of those rare parody games that recognises and mocks the pitfalls of its genre, but then sidesteps them in its own design, equipping itself with a veneer of smug satisfaction that transfers to the gamer.
Shining Wisdom (Saturn)

Shining Wisdom review (SAT)

Reviewed on July 19, 2010

“Continuity?”, asked a puzzled Working Designs translator. “Not on my watch!”
Aphelion: Graves of Earth (Xbox 360)

Aphelion: Graves of Earth review (X360)

Reviewed on July 19, 2010

The episodic nature of the title goes some way to explaining the inconclusive ending to the game, but my exhaustive relationship with Sam & Max means I know it’s not really excuse. I suppose it claws creditability back by being a fantastic game suffering a “not quite there yet” by-line.
Armada 2526 (PC)

Armada 2526 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 11, 2010

Armada 2526 is a hard game. It doesn’t have a plot, but it does have a big, wide open galaxy to explore and twelve distinct races to base your own story on.
The Godfather II (PlayStation 3)

The Godfather II review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 07, 2010

Battles are won before a single shot is fired, business taken without so much as a pride-obliterating pimp slap and the game completed without effort or, ultimately, interest.
Sam & Max: They Stole Max's Brain! (PC)

Sam & Max: They Stole Max's Brain! review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2010

Here, he needs to disturb an alliance between previous chapter’s villains using chicanery and random vandalism, while disembodied Max, his brain kept snug in a sealed jar, complete with electronic voice box and L.E.D mouth, antagonizes all around him out of sheer boredom.
8-bit Girlfriend (Xbox 360)

8-bit Girlfriend review (X360)

Reviewed on June 29, 2010

8-bit Girlfriend is a paper thin joke that doesn’t even stay around long enough to wear out its welcome.
Resident Evil 5: Untold Stories (Xbox 360)

Resident Evil 5: Untold Stories review (X360)

Reviewed on June 27, 2010

Untold Stories, as a whole, is a fantastic package that allows you to experience both sides of Resident Evil 5‘s extremes in their very best light.
Dead Space (Xbox 360)

Dead Space review (X360)

Reviewed on June 20, 2010

Dead Space doesn’t want to be another forgettable survival horror wannabe. It desperately wants to be taken seriously and, as such, has poured tremendous efforts into establishing its credentials.
I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MBIES 1NIT!!!1 (Xbox 360)

I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MBIES 1NIT!!!1 review (X360)

Reviewed on June 20, 2010

If you’re one of the few still left out in the dark, I can guarantee you’re all the poorer for it.
LEGO Rock Band (Wii)

LEGO Rock Band review (WII)

Reviewed on June 13, 2010

Maybe in any other game, I would feel pretentiously ashamed from having any kind of musical association with Counting Crows and Rascal Flatts, but the adorable Lego overhaul strips the game of the pseudo-seriousness exhibited in other musical titles, be they Rock Band or Guitar Hero. My biggest rival through the tour mode was a disgruntled drum-playing octopus who wasn’t included in the band due to an obscure rule on sea life being allowed in a contracted band, and I had to help demolish a strangely indestructible building by playing Tick Tick Boom at it until it fell over.
Uno (Xbox 360)

Uno review (X360)

Reviewed on June 02, 2010

For the most part, Uno is a laid-back, chilled experience that can either be played as a bite-sized relaxant in between bigger games or as a surprisingly easy way to burn away several hours.
Jewel Quest Mysteries: Curse of the Emerald Tear (DS)

Jewel Quest Mysteries: Curse of the Emerald Tear review (DS)

Reviewed on May 31, 2010

As things stand, there absolutely no reason to recommend this over any of the other Jewel Quest entries already out there. By picking up an older version, you are spared from inclusions that lessen the overall effect and get the experience the game as it should have been kept.
Sam & Max: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak (PC)

Sam & Max: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak review (PC)

Reviewed on May 30, 2010

Forget about this shaping up to be the best Sam & Max season yet: this is shaping up to be the best thing Telltale have produces thus far.
Wings of Prey (PC)

Wings of Prey review (PC)

Reviewed on May 30, 2010

It’s not an easy task to please everyone, but Wings of Prey tries to do just that and, in a lot of ways, actually manages to succeed.
Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie (Xbox 360)

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie review (X360)

Reviewed on May 22, 2010

There’s brilliance included, and stand-out moments litter the game like pinpricks of inspiration, but they tend to get lost in the bog of over-championed ideas best explored in moderation but dished out mercilessly in servings of pure overkill.
