Hurry Up Hedgehog! (DS)

Hurry Up Hedgehog! review (DS)

Reviewed on May 06, 2008

Hurry Up Hedgehog is instead a modest title based upon some German board game I’m not even going to try and spell. It presents players with a grid full of pits and challenges them to get three of their four hedgehogs to the other side before any of the other teams can. Along the way, you need to try and push your opposition’s hedgehogs out of the way (and, ideally, into pits) while trying to navigate the safest route through the obstacles and opposition.
Secret Files: Tunguska (Wii)

Secret Files: Tunguska review (WII)

Reviewed on May 05, 2008

In one scenario, a Russian military hospital that has Nina imprisoned in a rat-infested cell with only a stinking foam mattress for company, Max flies out to the rescue (for some reason, in Tunguska, everyone has a plane license, despite their profession) allowing the two to work together as a team, swapping items between the two as they may need to, attacking the hospital from two different locations. It’s hardly a new idea, but it’s one that forces you to think at things from a slightly different angle. Then it’s over, Nina is sprung, and this teamwork is never used again.
Utawarerumono (PC)

Utawarerumono review (PC)

Reviewed on May 04, 2008

Utawarerumono doesn’t start off particularly promising, and you’d be forgiven in thinking that, based upon its archetype-ridden beginnings, it would drown in a flood of clichés well before it hits endgame. But you would be largely mistaken.
Bomberman Land (Wii)

Bomberman Land review (WII)

Reviewed on April 27, 2008

Thing is, if you can dig through the gloopy mire of problems that plague Bomberman Land then you can find a decent collection of mini-games to play though. And, if you don’t have the patience, then you can simply fall back on the tried and trusted Bomberman game of old where you try the explode fellows bombers in a claustrophobic room rife with power-ups.
Sam & Max 204: Chariots of the Dogs (PC)

Sam & Max 204: Chariots of the Dogs review (PC)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

We’re now at the point where the game even makes fun of itself for these limitations, and, while taking pot-shots at the forth wall is a Sam & Max staple, it’s a little hard to poke fun at crimes you commit yourself. Get ready for the jarring change of tone, though, folks, I’m about to tell you why I loved Chariots of the Dogs anyway.
Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core (Wii)

Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core review (WII)

Reviewed on April 05, 2008

The all-new Wii exclusive controls, advertised as the game’s most poignant selling point, is really the only reason you might want to put it back down on the shelf where you found it.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (Xbox 360)

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter review (X360)

Reviewed on April 04, 2008

That's not to discount the game's prominent sense of realism, though. It only takes a single, well-placed bullet to see you off and the wounds you collect in mission do not magically and conveniently vanish. By all means, run head first into that small circle of tents with your gun blazing -- just expect to be dead long before you spot your first target. Both the angles and the numbers are always against you.
Bomberman Land Touch! 2 (DS)

Bomberman Land Touch! 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on March 30, 2008

Touch 2 does a good job of throwing an insane selection of just how many games you play and at varying the difficulty of them all. You’ll also have problems with a game that asks you to slingshot yourself into the air to try and collect coloured bombs for point, but you’ll have less of a problem pulling the same bombs out of a pond when you take on a fishing mini-game. It will probably take you a few turns to rack up enough points to pass a stage that has a hanger spit out a constant stream of tanks at you that you need destroy by lobbing bombs into their path, but you’ll probably find it easier to finish off a game of air-hockey played with an explosive puck you need to explode in the face of your challenger
Mass Effect (Xbox 360)

Mass Effect review (X360)

Reviewed on March 30, 2008

Mass Effect isn’t a game that deals just in moralistic black & white. These choices, while straightforward enough at first, are often draped in an ugly shade of red.
R-Type III: The Third Lightning (Game Boy Advance)

R-Type III: The Third Lightning review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 24, 2008

R-Type III enjoys taking elements from the first game and then applying a generous new coat of difficulty. R-Type’s first level had you trade shots with a hulking, cannon-wielding robot as you both tore through a metallic cylinder. This is recreated with triple the number of gundam-ripoffs, but makes the last invincible, letting it pepper you with blasts until you force it to smash into the scenery.
No More Heroes (Wii)

No More Heroes review (WII)

Reviewed on March 23, 2008

But it’s when you reach these off-key boss fights that No More Hereos has it’s best moments. You meet Dr. Peace, western-style six-hooters and 70’s porn ‘tash, crooning into the empty stadium, telling you it was always his dream to perform on a stage like this and how the money you paid for the fight made it possible. You converse like two old friends, then you try your best to end each other’s life.
Fantasy Wars (PC)

Fantasy Wars review (PC)

Reviewed on February 27, 2008

What's refreshing is that the word 'strategy' isn't just in the genre's name out of some long-forgotten tradition: it must become the lynchpin of your game should you ever dream of progression.
Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None (Wii)

Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None review (WII)

Reviewed on February 21, 2008

The original PC version utilised a point and click interface to navigate Narracott's investigation, and the Wii takes that same approach sans mouse. Instead, the Wiimote is employed to use the on-screen pointer, which you aim at objects of interest to have your avatar interact with.
Sam & Max 203: Night of the Raving Dead (PC)

Sam & Max 203: Night of the Raving Dead review (PC)

Reviewed on February 19, 2008

Night of the Raving Dead brings all the good things the series has been steadily building upon and then some. It improves upon the lacklustre length of Moai Better Blues, keeps the quality of the script high, and, while the puzzles are still on the easy side, they’re still a step above those seen in the first season.
Art of Fighting Anthology (PlayStation 2)

Art of Fighting Anthology review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 17, 2008

Art of Fighting will break you harder than Ivan Drago.
Final Fantasy Tactics (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy Tactics review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 30, 2008

To win this fight, the game encourages you to run around the edges of the screen spamming Ramza's stat-up skills to boost him to super-human proportions while an enraged, mutated Weigraf chases you around like the victim of a poor Benny Hill sketch. After a few laps, Ramza will be so artificially bloated that Weigarf's heartbreaking final sacrifice will amount to naught.
Sam & Max 202: Moai Better Blues (PC)

Sam & Max 202: Moai Better Blues review (PC)

Reviewed on January 28, 2008

It even makes time to take sly shots at other games such as Portal’s teleport system, Duke Nukem’s inability to release a damn game on time and Metal Gear Solid’s over-dramatic death-scream. You know the one!
Ark of Time (PlayStation)

Ark of Time review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 22, 2008

But, no, that would imply that a light-hearted slant had been taken on the game. Instead, Richard's position and news story are SERIOUS BUISNESS! This leads him to undertake serious issues like helping a local fisherman find his rare white crab who jumped ship while he wasn't looking. Said fisherman isn't the sharpest knife in the draw, so just painting any old crab will suffice -- teaching you that newspaper writers are rife with treachery.
Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 (Xbox 360)

Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 review (X360)

Reviewed on January 21, 2008

No matter the skill setting of the team you're playing, be it mighty Australia to pitiful America, there's about a 50% chance that they'll either be an LBW awarded or the ball will smash into the bails. Either way, look to bowl out entire teams for under 50 runs.
World Snooker Championship: Season 2007-08 (DS)

World Snooker Championship: Season 2007-08 review (DS)

Reviewed on January 19, 2008

I lost my game 15-80, owing my points to a few lucky “Smash & Hope” shots and a high break of eight when I managed to pot a red and then the black. The few shots I took only really existed to draw the ire of the commentator who had heaped nothing but praise on my opponent. This is because the control scheme can politely be described as ‘tricky’.
