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.

Silver Eagle (NES)

Silver Eagle review (NES)

Reviewed on February 27, 2008

Silver Eagle is an odd game to describe. Perhaps the best retro comparison that can be made is with Quintet’s Actraiser. Silver Eagle is not a 2D-Platformer combined with town-building simulator, but it is similar in the sense that it basically has two entirely different games from two entirely different genres combined seamlessly into one. In short, one half of Silver Eagle is a 2D-esque overhead action game reminiscent of Metal Gear with less stealth and more...

Big Brain Academy (DS)

Big Brain Academy review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

Big Brain Academy is a sequel to the smash-hit game Brain Age. It follows the same basic principals as it's predecessor by giving you an examination of your brain after completing various mini-games. The game only contains 15 different mini-games for you to test your brain on, although fun they do start to get repetitive after a while and this is the game's main fault.

Speedball 2 - Tournament (PC)

Speedball 2 - Tournament review (PC)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

But underneath all the machismo and violence, Speedball is actually a rather complex game that can best be described as a cross between soccer and pinball. The goal of the players is to score points by injuring the other team, or getting the ball into the goal. You can boost the number of points you score by throwing a ball through a loop-de-loop built into the wall. Each time you do so, you get a x2 multiplayer added to any points you score, which can be reduced by the opposing team doing the same thing.

Crimson Room (DS)

Crimson Room review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

A majority of frequent internet users (gamers in particular) has played, or at least heard of the Crimson Room series of flash “escape-the-room” games by Toshimitsu Takagi. Hosted on approximately four trillion flash gaming websites, you play a character who awakens within a room and has to use household items littered about or deceptively hidden as a means to escape. Such a simple premise has a catch, and that is the difficulty – or simply the absurdity of the solutions and item placements. Pan...

Geometry Wars: Galaxies (DS)

Geometry Wars: Galaxies review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

I'm not a fan of Geometry Wars. It was a fun premise that did not grip me - neither on the Marketplace or in PGR – a game that seemed to lack any real structure beyond ‘blow stuff up to get a high score'. But for some bizarre reason I've given this game a seven. Why the hell would I do that?

Cold Fear (PlayStation 2)

Cold Fear review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

The phrase 'Resident Evil on a boat' has cropped up more than once over time to describe particular survival horror games. Whether you find the phrase cute, pithy or dispassionately accurate when applied, the trouble is that the handful of games attracting this description have yet to bring enough new stuff to the table (apart from the boat) or to do the old stuff as well as the bedrock titles did it, to be able to escape from their shadow. Cold Fear is excellent in its boatiness, perhaps the ze...

AGON: The Lost Sword Of Toledo (PC)

AGON: The Lost Sword Of Toledo review (PC)

Reviewed on February 25, 2008

If you’ve been playing the earlier Agon games this is probably a natural purchase, but don’t let lack of experience with the previous games put you off. It stands up just fine by itself, and there is a detailed codex that outlines the professor’s adventures in the past episodes if you’re so inclined. It isn’t as extravagant or exciting as many of the new-school adventures that have been hitting our shops in recent months, but The Lost Sword of Toledo is a solid package that does the important things right.

Lost Odyssey (Xbox 360)

Lost Odyssey review (X360)

Reviewed on February 25, 2008

Kaim's journey might be accompanied by a story that's wildly different from the crowd, but its gameplay isn't far removed from that of other JRPGs. Battles are randomly encountered, turn-based affairs, but more strategic than you might expect. Both you and your enemies have front row and back row formations where characters in the front shield the rear characters from damage.

Futari wa Precure Max Heart: Danzen! DS de Precure Chikara o Awasete Dai Battle review (DS)

Reviewed on February 25, 2008

They’re cute, aren’t they? The characters in Pretty Cure, I mean. Actually, they’re too cute; they cross that line that separates being adorable and downright irritating. One of them acts as a tomboy (whose costume, ironically enough, sports a ridiculous amount of frills and hearts), another is a brilliant and clumsy second fiddle, and the third is some pink-laden child with disturbingly long hair. They are a group of high school girls that can use their cell phones to transform in...

Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)

Super Mario Galaxy review (WII)

Reviewed on February 25, 2008

As I was playing through Mario Galaxy, I found I was having fun. But not the conventional type of fun. Let’s call it “half-fun”. It’s the kind of fun where you enjoy what you’re playing but at the same time you’re bored out of your mind. It’s like after you drink a big Slurpee; you feel very quenched but simultaneously very thirsty. It became increasingly clear over the course of Galaxy that the game would be a lot better if it wasn’t a Mario game. Forget being played out to death; Mario’s been ...

Civilization III (PC)

Civilization III review (PC)

Reviewed on February 25, 2008

Civilization 3 Complete was released in 2005. It brings together all three games of the series into one complete package. With Civ 3 complete you get the original Civilization 3, a map editor, Play the World Expansion Pack, and Conquests expansion pack. For the money there is a huge amount of strategy, and one can expect to play countless hours of addicting turn based games. Let me tell you, there is no other strategy game out there that will get you hooked and keep you playing. It's really almo...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune review (PS3)

Reviewed on February 23, 2008

“There must be a beginning of any great matter, but the continuing unto the end until it be thoroughly finished yields the true glory”. The preceding was said by Sir Francis Drake, a believed ancestor of the games main character, Nathan Drake. You probably recognize Sir Francis Drake from your history textbooks. Wait, does that make this game...educational? Never fear, there is no form of educational learning in this game. All you’ll find here is a superbly crafted video game from Naughty Dog;...

Burai Fighter (NES)

Burai Fighter review (NES)

Reviewed on February 22, 2008

From there, despite graphical differences, the second, fourth, fifth and seventh stages are essentially the same. You go one way while blasting stuff, change direction while killing more things, change direction again and so on until you get to the boss. While it’s a nice formula that does have its moments, such as in the fifth level where you seemingly spend an eternity in the first corridor scrolling every which way before moving on, things tend to feel like you're?doing the same thing over and over again.

Kirby's Dream Land (Game Boy)

Kirby's Dream Land review (GB)

Reviewed on February 21, 2008

Without his ability-stealing powers, Kirby’s a pretty dull hero. He can gulp down some air and fly, he can spit that air at enemies and he can swallow them and their projectiles to either shoot at other foes or eat. And that’s all. He won’t pick up a sword or hammer. He can’t emit an freezing barrier to turn foes into blocks of ice. He’ll never transform into a fast-moving, laser-shooting UFO. Kirby might not simultaneously suck and blow, but those are about the only things he is capable of doing.

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.

Assassin's Creed (Xbox 360)

Assassin's Creed review (X360)

Reviewed on February 21, 2008

At long last, a medieval Grand Theft Auto crossed with Virtuosity with a whole lot of Hashishism and no small amount of heinous Arabic stereotypes. To be fair, Ubisoft Montreal consists of many people of differing beliefs and opinions, so there is no doubt the handful of Christian characters are also uptight, militant arseholes. Yes, it's the Middle East during the Crusades, the glorious 12th century AD. Even in the heart of Mesopotamia, everyone speaks in the tongue of the heretic...

Sonic & Knuckles review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 20, 2008

He’s blue, he’s spiky, it’s that hedgehog that’s too quick to be flattened by oncoming traffic and after beating Robotnik twice, he’s got no time for visiting fellow hedgehog flat-mates. The death egg ship you thought was destroyed for goodreally landed on top of Lava Reef, and the not-so-free-range egg-shaped Dr. Robotnik manages to sneakily trick Knuckles the Echidna to obtain the Master Emerald to repair the Death Egg ship. It’s up to Sonic and Knuckles to team together and stop Robotn...

Welcome to Morrowind, home of the the Dunmer, Outlander. You have been taken from the imperial prison back in Tamriel where you were kept for unspecified crimes and, on the Emperor's orders, placed aboard a ship and sent to this plague ridden and near lawless imperial colony steeped in ancient tradition and littered with ancient treasure for reasons unknown to you or your keepers.

Undead Line review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 20, 2008

It’s hard to play a fantasy-based shmup like Undead Line without (a) recalling that horrible Square NES release King’s Knight and (b) laughing. Even if one of these games turned out to be good, I will always think the idea of a shooter set in medieval times is silly, especially when it comes to projectiles. The armor clad hero of Undead Line
