Risen (Xbox 360)

Risen review (X360)

Reviewed on October 06, 2009

Thereís moments in Risen that can quite take you by surprise. Moments where you find yourself regarding the virtual world as a living, breathing entity. That alone is worth some measure of admiration.
Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes (Xbox)

Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 26, 2009

Play this with a friend, or donít play it at all. Just donít be too surprised if youíre no longer friends come endgame.
IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey (Xbox 360)

IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey review (X360)

Reviewed on September 08, 2009

Regardless of how chaotic the on-screen action is, the game never shows any sign of struggling. From the fully working instruments that track every aspect of your journey should you select to view your flight inside the cockpit to the outrageous details ploughed into the landscapes youíll scream over to even the ridiculous numbers of targets and allies clogging up the skies, the approached little touches club together to create an immaculate and clearly laboured after setting.
Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - The Director's Cut (DS)

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - The Director's Cut review (DS)

Reviewed on August 30, 2009

Itís all in Directorís Cut. But so are those trade offs.
Metal Slug 7 (DS)

Metal Slug 7 review (DS)

Reviewed on July 16, 2009

Eventually, regular soldiers become futuristic mercenaries using overpowered firearms that shoot globes of thunder or hives of heat-seeking mini-rockets. They lay you to siege on a snow covered mountain while the air remains constantly abuzz with gunships, bombers and layer after layer of bullet hell.
Cocoto Platform Jumper (Wii)

Cocoto Platform Jumper review (WII)

Reviewed on July 13, 2009

Platform Jumper looks like Rayman, plays like a lethargic Sonic and lifts the arcing attacks/temporary platforms from Rainbow Island. Notably, in aping games of actual worth, it manages to hobble together a Frankensteinís monster of a title that actually works.
FIFA Soccer 09 (Xbox 360)

FIFA Soccer 09 review (X360)

Reviewed on July 06, 2009

For me, FIFA '09 is a multiplayer game. One so aggressively combative it's become a potential friendship breaker.
Crazy Machines 2 Complete (PC)

Crazy Machines 2 Complete review (PC)

Reviewed on July 01, 2009

Itís an interest thing, really. If the idea of gizmos and pulleys and gears has you grinning like a loon, or even if you want to tread a puzzle path not often explored, then this is a great package to pick up.
Junior Classic Games (DS)

Junior Classic Games review (DS)

Reviewed on June 21, 2009

Split into six differing categories, each of the thirty mini games is bright, colourful and wrapped around a strong animal motif thatís not overly complicated nor tinged with the disappointing ďyouíre doing your homework for fun!Ē aftertaste so many of the more traditional brain-trainers feel obliged to wallow in.
Mystery Stories (DS)

Mystery Stories review (DS)

Reviewed on June 20, 2009

Mystery Storiesí biggest problem is how it seems to want you to believe itís something more than a game that presents you with a cluttered room then asks you to point out semi-hidden items with your stylus because, as far as games of this ilk go, this title is a competent and sometimes enjoyable take.
Osomatsu-kun: Hachamecha Gekijou (Genesis)

Osomatsu-kun: Hachamecha Gekijou review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 14, 2009

Osomatsu-kun: Hachamecha Gekijou is a war of attrition; progression in the game is dependant on what simply breaks first. The gameís surreal presentation or your will to continue onward.
PDC World Championship Darts 2009 (Wii)

PDC World Championship Darts 2009 review (WII)

Reviewed on June 06, 2009

2009 has made some big steps up from its previous version, but that everything about the game is so budget that it hardly looks any different from the initial outing made two years ago on the PS2 isnít something that makes it an easy recommendation.
Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge (PC)

Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge review (PC)

Reviewed on June 01, 2009

Iíve nothing against games being hard, but before you survive the first few initial outings, loot a few corpses and watch your teamís stats rise to the point where itís noticeable, youíll be spending a lot of time reloading old saves that took place before complete slaughters and eagle-eyed head shot levelled against you.
Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol. 2: Jacky Bryant (Saturn)

Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol. 2: Jacky Bryant review (SAT)

Reviewed on May 03, 2009

Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol 2 highlights these traits by showing Jacky playing with a Dalmation, going grocery shopping and entering a deserted bar to play a rousing game of pool. By himself.
Gobliiins 4 (PC)

Gobliiins 4 review (PC)

Reviewed on April 27, 2009

If this sounds negative, then itís because it is! Gobliiins 4 is a flawed game, filled with problems, awkward design decisions and a baffling lack of foresight. Itís ugly, clumsy and displays nothing that would push you onwards into the late levels. Except for the puzzles.
Blue Dragon Plus (DS)

Blue Dragon Plus review (DS)

Reviewed on April 27, 2009

What good is equipping your meat shield as a monster bait when your stupid healer wonít stop standing in front of him? The more numbers mean the greater chance for complete chaos, and itís all too tempting to ignore the gameís wishes to break your forces into four small platoons to explore different corners of the map independently when you can redistribute characters to far-flung areas between battles without penalty.
Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360)

Resident Evil 5 review (X360)

Reviewed on April 19, 2009

Itís fine with me when the game starts to segue into cut scenes built right off the previous gameís frantic war against biological experiments gone wrong and hunting for brains, but it seems to go jarringly against what they tried to do with the last outing. For those of you out there who started the series at 4, prepare to be confused.
Challenge Me: Math Workout (DS)

Challenge Me: Math Workout review (DS)

Reviewed on April 11, 2009

If youíre one of those odd people who think these things are great, then here youíll find a game simply not having enough options to place it above the hordes of other games that insist number crunching is a super way to pass your time.
Samurai Shodown Anthology (PSP)

Samurai Shodown Anthology review (PSP)

Reviewed on April 11, 2009

Samurai Shodown is what Soul Calibur would be if it played in 2D and hated you more.
Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars (Wii)

Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars review (WII)

Reviewed on April 05, 2009

Itís kooky and competent, making exploring the well realised settings enjoyable and, though Pax doesnít bring anything new to the plate, heís still a fun addition to anyoneĎs library.
