Eternal Sonata (Xbox 360)

Eternal Sonata review (X360)

Reviewed on January 30, 2008

When you walk upon this world, its beauty will leave you lost for words. The dazzling ambience of rich colour, every shade of the rainbow, is quite a sight to behold. It's almost as if Eternal Sonata is a vibrant dream, and that isn't far from the truth. This obscure tale unfolds within the confines of a dream; that of the famed composer, Frederic Chopin, who lies on his deathbed. And despite the unorthodox setting and cutesy characters, there are a lot of deep issues embedded in Chopin's...
Mass Effect (Xbox 360)

Mass Effect review (X360)

Reviewed on December 03, 2007

Man has always wondered whether there is intelligent life beyond the sea of stars in the sky. In BioWare’s latest blockbuster, Mass Effect, mankind is late to the intergalactic party. Alien races have established a council that encompasses the best part of the Milky Way, and humanity is the new kid on the block. After discovering ancient technology on planet Mars, humans got a jump start that allowed them to travel time and space. The majority of the alien races are sceptical and envious of man’...
Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (Xbox 360)

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock review (X360)

Reviewed on November 28, 2007

Guitar Hero III is the best game in the series by far, and a great game in its own right. Prior experience with the series isn’t necessary because anyone can pick the game up and have fun. The range and quality of music helps in making it accessible to everyone, and this will be reinforced with the post-release stream of downloadable content.
rFactor (PC)

rFactor review (PC)

Reviewed on November 20, 2007

It’s a little unfair to hold rFactor’s lack of accessibility against it as it has clearly set out to be a simulation racer. It does a fine job of that, but those who don’t demand flawless simulation are better served looking elsewhere.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (Xbox 360)

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 06, 2007

It’s comparable to the thirty-something footballer in the twilight of his career; once a magician on the field, but now a fallen star who is content to sit on the bench for his massive pay cheque. PES needs to be the teenage upstart who’s making his way in the game; eager to learn, determined to succeed, and playing with passion.
Brunswick Pro Bowling (PlayStation 2)

Brunswick Pro Bowling review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 02, 2007

Unfortunately, Brunswick Pro Bowling is hard to recommend to anyone, even the most hardcore bowling fan. Although the bowling mechanics are decent and there is a wealth of licensed Brunswick gear, they in no way balance the negatives. The lack of game modes and uninspired audiovisual design is a disaster; you’d be better of spending your money elsewhere.
Totemball (Xbox 360)

Totemball review (X360)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

The release of the Xbox Live Vision camera has opened up an avenue of opportunity for the Xbox 360. Games have taken advantage of the Vision by using face-in-game technology and allowing you to see real-time video streams of your opponents during gameplay. However, TotemBall, the first game that uses the camera exclusively to dictate gameplay, is a terrible showcase of what the Vision can do.
Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s (PlayStation 2)

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

The original Guitar Hero’s release in 2005 achieved mass commercial and critical success, almost single-handedly reviving the rhythm game genre. Although the companies behind the phenomenon, Harmonix and RedOctane, have now parted company, their last collaboration is now with us. Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s is a collection of thirty tracks from the decade; the song list is a bit hit-and-miss, but the real disappointment is the lack of value and lazy presentation.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All review (DS)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

Although the Phoenix Wright series has been established in Japan for a good number of years as Gyakuten Saiban, it’s still relatively new to the Western world. 2005’s Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was a hit in the US and Europe; the twisting murder plots and courtroom drama translated well from East to West. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All is very similar to its predecessor. The plotlines are well thought out and the characters well scripted, but it suffers severely from its short ...
Virtua Tennis 3 (Xbox 360)

Virtua Tennis 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

Since the turn of the millennium the Virtua Tennis series has dominated the tennis scene. The past few years may have been a little quiet but Virtua Tennis is back with a bang on the Xbox 360. The game hasn’t changed a great deal since Virtua Tennis 2, but Sega has improved and refined the visual presentation by taking advantage of the Xbox 360’s capabilities.
Super Paper Mario (Wii)

Super Paper Mario review (WII)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

The latest instalment of the Paper Mario franchise captures a beauty similar to the paper-folding art of origami; a mixture of vibrant colours, abstract design, and mind-boggling use of 2D and 3D contributes to this, but don’t think Super Paper Mario is a one-trick pony. The side-scrolling action of the classic Mario games, combined with light RPG elements of the Paper Mario sub-franchise, complement each other marvellously.
Overlord (Xbox 360)

Overlord review (X360)

Reviewed on October 25, 2007

Have you ever dreamed of being an evil ruler with an army of underlings to do your bidding? For most of us, Overlord is as close as we can get to fulfill those twisted fantasies, and it generally does a pretty good job. At first glance, it appears as if Codemasters has created a straight-up adventure game, but the central focus on using your minion army to accomplish goals adds a strategic flavour to the game. This fusion results in an unusual and enjoyable style of gameplay, though it isn’t wit...
BioShock (Xbox 360)

BioShock review (X360)

Reviewed on October 25, 2007

Have you ever dreamed of a place where morality and religion don’t exist? A place where the sole limit of science and industry is man’s imagination? Dream no more, friend; welcome to Rapture.
Final Fantasy XII (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy XII review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 25, 2007

The original Final Fantasy launched in December of 1987 in Japan, and was expected to be SquareSoft’s swan song. Twenty years and a merger later, Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy has become one of the most successful and inappropriately named franchises in gaming history. As the Playstation 2 enters its final months, Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy XII is undoubtedly one of the biggest games at the tail-end of the PS2’s life. A significant switch in tone and game play provides the series with a breath of...
