Theme Hospital (PC)

Theme Hospital review (PC)

Reviewed on May 21, 2008

Bullfrog have been no strangers to strategy games, producing hit titles such as Theme Park, Populous and Dungeon Keeper, but this is a different take on the genre altogether. Managing hospitals without the stress, the A&E bloodshed and patients that love to sue isnít what you see released every week. Here you have hospitals infiltrated by patients with humorous illnesses caused by equally ridiculous symptoms, but this aside, Theme Hospital is no doddle. A title focusing more on depth than breadt...
Porsche Challenge (PlayStation)

Porsche Challenge review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 06, 2008

Letís be blunt. Thereís more of a chance you know that the American Samoan islands have a soccer team than knowing this PlayStation not-so-classic ever existed. A title that stinks of sheer forgettable-ness has the only redeeming factor of driving around in Porscheís. Still, thatís nothing like the real thing.
PaRappa the Rapper (PlayStation)

PaRappa the Rapper review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 21, 2008

So just imagine being back in the year is 1995, when youíve just seen the PlayStation in action hot off the production line, and seen the likes Ridge Racer in action. You probably imagined how the wonders of 3D could translate into all your favourite genres, such as shooting, realistic sports and maybe action games, all later to become cookie-cutter genres on the format. At what point would you have imagined playing a game involving a 2D hip-hop rapping dog, who tries to impress a sunflower face...
Sonic & Knuckles (Genesis)

Sonic & Knuckles review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 20, 2008

Heís blue, heís spiky, itís that hedgehog thatís too quick to be flattened by oncoming traffic and after beating Robotnik twice, heís 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. Itís up to Sonic and Knuckles to team together and stop Robotn...
Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (PC)

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 review (PC)

Reviewed on February 03, 2008

When it comes to purchasing football games these days, youíre limited to a choice between this or EAís FIFA series. With both series settling into next-gen, PES 2008 is truly revealing Konamiís complacency towards their product and a failure to deal with matters that are a constant thorn: laggy online play, shoddy presentation and limited options, but instead make more subtle changes to the gameplay. On plus points licenses are gradually improving, plus the introduction of a new team of commenta...
Unreal Tournament (PC)

Unreal Tournament review (PC)

Reviewed on December 22, 2007

The Unreal series originated in 1998 and was critically acclaimed for its single-player campaign, advanced AI and graphics, but its multiplayer mode was underdeveloped. This offering follows the traits of the original, but with a switched emphasis on multiplayer over single-player to rival its contemporaries such as Quake III Arena. Updates in 2003 and 2007 have updated the graphics drastically but still retain the same fundamental formula of open-ended arena blasting.
Spyro: Year of the Dragon (PlayStation)

Spyro: Year of the Dragon review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 13, 2007

Alongside Crash Bandicoot, the Spyro the Dragon series sat as the hallmark of PlayStation platforming, this third outing being the last both on PSone and to be developed by Insomniac, before being handed over to other developers with mixed results. The first Spyro game was a solid platformer with a genuine adventure feel and the second outing a year later was a decent follow-up, re-using the basic formula but unfortunately traded off challenge for too many mini-games. The success h...
Spyro the Dragon (PlayStation)

Spyro the Dragon review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 13, 2007

The Spyro the Dragon series made its debut on the PlayStation in late 1998 and was developed Insomniac games, who previously had developed the then acclaimed Disruptor. Alongside Crash Bandicoot who by this time was on his third outing, Spyro the Dragon went on to become a key PlayStation series before Insomniac moved onto Ratchet and Clank on the PlayStation 2. Since the PSone days the Spyro series has seen mixed results with different developers, ranging from...
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PlayStation 2)

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 08, 2007

A Grand Theft Auto game is self-explanatory really, a large (or in this case, massive) free-roaming world, run around killing pedestrians and gangsterís whilst slaloming with the police while completing missions, and stirring up massive controversy in the media at the same time. The original GTA game was released in 1997 and appeared most notably on PC and PSone, in which you played in a birds-eye perspective. 2001ís GTA3 was the first GTA on PlayStation 2 and gave us some real 3D action which c...
Mario Kart: Super Circuit (Game Boy Advance)

Mario Kart: Super Circuit review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 02, 2007

Mario Kart standís out as one of Nintendoís ever-appearing franchises on all their 16-bit consoles onwards and all share the basic principle of being a fun, entertaining racer that anyone can pick up and play and compete against each other regardless of ability. Super Mario Kart started the franchise off on the SNES and was technically impressive s well as some top gameplay, while Mario Kart 64 bought the series into full 3D and while successful, was too easy for some. Mario Kar...
Rage Racer (PlayStation)

Rage Racer review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 28, 2007

Rage Racer stands out as one of the PlayStationís games released in its early years, and is a slight spin-off to the Ridge Racer series, changing elements of what made it the arcade racer to be a tad more realistic, with darker colour schemes on the cars and tracks and looks more realistic overall.
Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (Genesis)

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 10, 2007

After two successful Sonic adventures on the Mega Drive, it was inevitably going to be debatable on how Sega could improve Sonic further in his third outing. Originally planned as being an isometric 3D game (like Sonic 3D), the idea was scrapped for being too radical a change. Nonetheless, Sonic 3 changed some of the ideas of the traditional Sonic approach of high-speed racing through levels with a more cautious approach with plenty of traps and obstacles, whilst introducing various level...
Matchbox Caterpillar Construction Zone (Game Boy Color)

Matchbox Caterpillar Construction Zone review (GBC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

Construction zone is just what it says it is, youíve got a whole plethora of trucks to use and are assigned these tasks in your truck depending on what function the truck can undertake. Thereís five stages, ranging from the forest, the farm, the neighbourhood or even the city, each with some uniqueness in the objectives but at the same time does feel slightly similar.
Half-Life 2: Episode One (PC)

Half-Life 2: Episode One review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

Half Life 2 Episode One is the next instalment of the Half-Life series, arguably the backbone of the FPS genre, and after the 1998 blockbuster and the successful sequel 6 years later, Valve decided to release Half Life 3 in three shorter episodic chunks to make release times faster. That means you donít have to wait until 2022 to learn about the conclusion to the story.
Half-Life 2 (PC)

Half-Life 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

Letís get this one straight, if you play PC games and havenít heard of Half Life then you must have been wearing a blindfold each time you were in the game store, and held under house arrest otherwise. The original Half Life was released in 1998, a success in its own right and also supplied a game engine used as a basis for many popular mods, such as Counter-Strike and Day of Defeat being the most popular plus two official expansions released, Opposing Force and Blue Shift in 1999 and 2001 respe...
