Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle (PC)

Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle review (PC)

Reviewed on May 03, 2007

Everything’s wrapped up in a torrent of solid voice acting living within a cel-shaded, cartoon-tinted wonderland that thrives in a sea of bright shades and pseudo-realism, gifting the game with a unique look and feel. The backdrops depicting lazy beaches, busy military camps, frozen wastelands or crumbling ruins are stunning; the character models tight and the whole style distinct and striking.
Demolition Racer: No Exit (Dreamcast)

Demolition Racer: No Exit review (DC)

Reviewed on April 24, 2007

Forget Destruction Derby: The best videogame to ever capture this is Demolition Racer. Even the name oozes more machismo.
Spectrobes (DS)

Spectrobes review (DS)

Reviewed on April 23, 2007

That your angry little pets never leave your side is doubly annoying; not only does it mean you need to put yourself right in the face of intergalactic forces that want to eat you, but should you move away when they’re attacking to avoid being hit, or should your pets get smacked across the screen, they’ll come running back to you in as direct a line as they can, even if this means running right through a group and getting smacked up themselves. Spectrobes are very stupid creatures when they’ve grown up.

Patriots: A Nation Under Fire (PC)

Patriots: A Nation Under Fire review (PC)

Reviewed on April 02, 2007

The second level (that starts where the first ends, but under the cover of night, suggesting you stood in the same spot for several hours until the sun went down) has you running around putting fires within the base out. Tiny little blazes that the narrative sells like they're about to engulf the Earth in napalm destruction but are no bigger than your average camp fire. If a programmer for this game strolled into your every-day back-yard barbeque situation, they'd declare Armageddon was upon us and promptly dive into the kiddy pool.
Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels (PlayStation)

Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels review (PSX)

Better as a general; lacking as a footsoldier.
PDC World Championship Darts (PlayStation 2)

PDC World Championship Darts review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 19, 2007

The conclusion gets stressed early today: PDC World Championship Darts can be a lot of fun, especially when you're playing the highly enjoyable multiplayer offerings. Such pub-friendly dart games like around the world, killer and fives make an appearance as well as customisable legs and sets of 501 (or, should you prefer, 301 or 701). Playing these against the computer can be both fun and intense. Playing these against a friend can whittle an evening away before you know it.

The Mark (PC)

The Mark review (PC)

Reviewed on March 04, 2007

Not that the terrorists will use cover much; they much prefer to stand in the open beneath big neon arrows adorned with “Shoot Me!” in flashing electric pink. And so, you shoot them, as peace-keepers are wont to do, either mowing them down with Fletcher’s assault-rifle or blasting them with Hawke’s shotgun and watching them tumble bonelessly to the floor.
Deus Ex: The Conspiracy (PlayStation 2)

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 01, 2007

Peace is not easily kept in the world that Deus Ex presents. The police are as corrupt as the senators assigned to oversee them and the only thing that talks on the streets is the harsh retort of a loaded firearm. The NSF, an antiestablishment terrorist organisation, grows bolder by the day, sabotaging civil buildings and landmarks, attempting to dispel the positive dogma spun by the governing power and underwrite their authority. Ruthless and destructive, their ever-swelling ranks encompass a stirring unrest in the lower order, one quickly camouflaged from the world with a sturdy veneer of propaganda. They are to be dealt with.

If the question was “did Taletale listen?” the answer offered by Abe Lincoln Must Die is “as much as they could".

UFO: Afterlight review (PC)

Reviewed on February 22, 2007

For a solid attempt and otherworldly genocide, things worked out great.
Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express (PC)

Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express review (PC)

Reviewed on February 15, 2007

There's a lot the game does right to endure itself to pre-existing fans of the genre, but it doesn't contain nearly enough correctly or differently to endear it to a new audience or indeed help it stand out amongst the crowd.

Welcome to Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. Welcome to a world that you will never want to forget.
Sam & Max Episode 3 - The Mole, The Mob and the Meatball (PC)

Sam & Max Episode 3 - The Mole, The Mob and the Meatball review (PC)

Reviewed on January 26, 2007

Because although the comedic script is sharper than ever in this episode, Sam & Max Episode 3: The Mole, The Mob and The Meatball suffers a few problems.
Eragon (Xbox 360)

Eragon review (X360)

Reviewed on December 27, 2006

Even before you take to the air to take part in clumsy dogfights that put you in a continuous loop of see-off-foes-munch-respawning-health-up-see-off-respawned-foes (repeat until your sanity cracks or your thrown pad cracks your TV), young Eragon will need to slog through the basic hack-and-slash meat of the game that offers very little in the way of inventivity or even competence.
Sam & Max Episode 2 - Situation: Comedy (PC)

Sam & Max Episode 2 - Situation: Comedy review (PC)

Reviewed on December 23, 2006

Wherever they spew their spontaneous insanity, they do so comfortably in the knowledge that everything around them works. Sam's laid-back noir voice narrates proceedings with a smooth, practised hands while Max overwrites sense with deranged threats and suggestions. Trying to share an innocent anecdote about the pair's adventures starts our furry chum off on a tale of bludgeoning purse-snatchers with broken parking meters while screaming "DIE! Why won't you die?!," with a nodding Sam looking on approvingly.
Gears of War (Xbox 360)

Gears of War review (X360)

Reviewed on December 08, 2006

You'll be surprised how much you can do with so little buttons. Take control of Marcus Fenix, and marvel at how easy it is to throw him around the battlefield. Within minutes, you'll have him hurling himself behind cover, popping around the sides to take shots at any available targets and even reaching over his protective barrier to fire blindly at any foe foolish enough to charge him. You'll have him diving from one safe haven to the next, sniping around corners to bull-rush unprepared Locust and hurling spike-encrusted sling-shot-inspired grenades right down their scaly little throats.
Master of Weapon (Genesis)

Master of Weapon review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 03, 2006

If that didn't make things easy enough, then reveal in the hailstorm of power-ups that drip from the screen every time you manage to shoot down one of the many lime-green penile-shaped ships that explode upon the merest of bullet grazes. These power-ups will literally outnumber enemy projectiles and offer you the substandard upgrades such as making your standard laser suddenly fire in double or triple spread shots.
