Unreal Tournament 3 (PC)

Unreal Tournament 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on December 17, 2007

If there's a genre that 2007 has been kind to, it's the first person shooter. The market has been absolutely flooded with shooters and many of them have been very good, making it that much more difficult for a new game to stand out. Nevertheless, Unreal Tournament III is easily one of the strongest entries in the genre this year, especially for fans of multiplayer shooters.

Gears of War (Xbox 360)

Gears of War review (X360)

Reviewed on December 16, 2007

In a post-Halo gaming world that lives, breathes and runs on futuristic shooters, you can tell Gears of War has entirely different plans the moment you take first control of main character Marcus Fenix and realize that, in addition to the rare third-person perspective, the game has no aiming reticle.

Team Fortress 2 (PC)

Team Fortress 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on December 14, 2007

Until recently, Team Fortress 2 was classified as vaporware - software that is hyped up, then never released, ala Duke Nukem Forever. It appeared on every major vaporware list, and was considered a joke to players of Team Fortress: Classic. The rumors that Team Fortress 2 would never exist got to the point where a fan-made TFC clone for the Source engine was made. Then out of nowhere, Valve announced a miracle: Team Fortress 2 would become reality.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Game Boy Color)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone review (GBC)

Reviewed on December 14, 2007

When you first hear the tinny sounding main theme through the Gameboy Colour's speakers, you'll most likely by in no doubt that this is just another cash-in on a popular novel and film. However, once you actually begin your massively large adventure, you'll wonder if this ever was intended just as a tie-in. In fact, unlike most games based on novels and films, this game actually takes the mystical worlds of Diagon Alley and Hogwarts and brings them to life in a way neither the film nor any of th...

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...

Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)

Super Mario Galaxy review (WII)

Reviewed on December 12, 2007

If there is one game that defines the Wii, Super Mario Galaxy is it. If there's a game that defines a generation, Super Mario Galaxy is one of them. It's that good. This is the best game that Nintendo has created in years, which says a lot, considering their pedigree. Super Mario Galaxy is in essence, a phenomenally fun game that has the ability to make you naturally smile because it's so wonderfully entertaining. Super Mario Galaxy isn't just one of the best platformers ever, but it's also poss...

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare review (X360)

Reviewed on December 11, 2007

For many, it is difficult to perceive a first-person shooter as nothing more than an opportunity to blow the brains out of some intricately rendered enemy soldiers. But, if the art of videogame lies in giving players agency; in immersing them in an interactive, sometimes visceral, experience, then the humble first-person shooter is capable of so much more. Call of Duty 4, Infinity Ward’s modern take on first person military combat, understands this and hints at new ways of experiencing narrative...

Ghost Squad (Wii)

Ghost Squad review (WII)

Reviewed on December 10, 2007

It’s quiet. Too quiet. You can hear the water lapping against the lakeshore, and a lone cricket greeting the evening. The sun is setting behind a wall of pine trees. Faced with such serenity, you could almost forget that the place is infested with terrorists. Somewhere inside this lakeside villa, they’re holding the President and others hostage. There will be no negotiations involved here; you’re armed with pistols, rifles, and God knows what else, and you’re going to use every last one of them....

Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit (PlayStation)

Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 09, 2007

Let’s begin by saying here that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 3 is for arcade race fans only. NFS does offer a simulation option, but if you wanted that you’d have bought Gran Turismo already. So with that in mind let’s start the review!

Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour (PlayStation)

Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 09, 2007

Walt Disney Magical Racing Tour is a light hearted, fairly fun, kiddish cart racing game. The game is intended for probably ages 8-12, but older players can still get some fun out of the light hearted gameplay. The main selling point of the game is the “Disney” label, but that doesn’t mean the game is too cookie cutter. Although the game is dwarfed by the likes of Crash Team Racing, and Mario Kart, it still manages to bring a few new things to the table, and a totally new racing cast. Read on ...

Mario to Wario (SNES)

Mario to Wario review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 09, 2007

It's a beautiful day, and you're out taking a pleasant stroll and communing with nature. But your whole day is about to be ruined, as some douchebag decides it'd be absolutely hilarious to drop a bucket on your head. Due to your stubby and useless arms, you just can't get that thing off. Blind and helpless, what do you do? Sit and wait for help, act nonchalant about having a bucket stuck on your head, call out? Not if you're Mario, who feels the best course of action is to blindly walk forward i...

Mass Effect (Xbox 360)

Mass Effect review (X360)

Reviewed on December 09, 2007

Mass Effect is a challenging game to decipher. Hours in you will have engaged in countless conversations over the most trivial of minutiae, you will have killed (and been killed) by an endless army of Geth droids and you will have flown to and explored numerous uncharted, but disappointingly empty, planets. Even after this, you may not even know what a ‘mass effect’ is, let alone decided whether BioWare’s latest sci-fi opera has been a success in combining intensive role-playing with squad-based...

The Dukes of Hazzard: Racing for Home review (PSX)

The Dukes of Hazard Racing for home is the first Dukes of Hazard game. While the game is full of charm, and stay very true to the show, many things make it far from being an enjoyable experience.

Mega Man ZX (DS)

Mega Man ZX review (DS)

Reviewed on December 08, 2007

If there is one word that can sum up the ongoing Mega Man series, it's "consistent". The series has spawned many games over the years and it consists of a few sub-series like the classic series, the X series and the Zero series. It has also been a very consistent series in many ways. First of all, the quality of the games is usually on a high level concerning action-platformers, bar a few. Second, the series is also known for its very consistent approach in its core gameplay...

Jam Sessions review (DS)

Reviewed on December 08, 2007

...and using Jam Sessions, you'll become a (sort of) master at playing Guitar. Jam Sessions is pretty good if your looking to play chords on the guitar with cool effects, but it doesn't really go much further than that, and you can't play melodies and individual strings.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (DS)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix review (DS)

Reviewed on December 08, 2007

You should be skeptical of almost any game that is based on any form of popular entertainment. Be it a new game version of your favourite gameshow, or a game-version of the latest Hollywood blockbuster. Chances are, it'll be a rapidly assembled game with no innovation nor fun at all. This is entirely true in the case of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Never before have I played a tie-in game that has reached such heights of unplayability. I don't know what annoys me more: the fact tha...

Hotel Dusk: Room 215 review (DS)

Reviewed on December 07, 2007

Take the essence of Phoenix Wright (or for those of you who have experience with Japanese games, a so-called "play novel"). Add in backgrounds done by what look like Team Silent during the time they made Silent Hill 1, and some film noir ripoff graphics ala Max Payne. This is what makes up the game called Hotel Dusk - Room 215. In some ways, it's unique and different. In others, it's exceptionally repetitive and boring.

RoadKill (GameCube)

RoadKill review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 07, 2007

Roadkill is the most amazing game of its type for the lowly Gamecube. Just as the title says, “GTA meets Twisted Metal!” What gamer wouldn’t want that combination? Although there was almost no competition to crush in the car combat/GTA genre, Roadkill would kill most other games of the genre anyway. Quite a relatively unknown/unplayed title, it’s too bad Midway’s GTA spin off didn’t get noticed by many. Any readers looking for car destruction, BUY THIS GAME NOW!
