Mindjack (Xbox 360)

Mindjack review (X360)

Reviewed on September 16, 2012

If it wasn't for its gimmick, Mindjack could have been the most timid third-person cover shooter I've played in recent memory. The flow follows the formula with such generic conviction, going from segmented area to segmented area as you shoot off rounds from pistols and assault rifles against an endless supply of soldiers, cops, and shotgun-wielding astronauts (I honestly can't explain that last one) in a futuristic metropolis setting.

Sleeping Dogs review (X360)

Reviewed on September 14, 2012

Sleeping Dogs wouldn't have even existed without Square Enix and that could only have been bad thing. Activision didn’t want to give it a chance, but that most certainly doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t either. Delve into the seedy and brutal criminal underworld of a dense and vibrant Hong Kong...

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes review (PC)

Reviewed on September 13, 2012

Most fans know what to expect when Gotham is concerned. A pretty outside that covers up the seedy, criminal infested underground. Lego Batman takes a similar approach, but is not afraid to throw it's own spin on the title, so those that want a more serious title might remain disappointed.

King's Knight (NES)

King's Knight review (NES)

Reviewed on September 10, 2012

Although it sounded like an interesting hybrid of shooter and RPG, the mix wasn't enough to hold my attention as a kid. Without the game's selling point to hold me in thrall, there was nothing to dull the stiff challenge I experienced.

Anarchy Reigns (Xbox 360)

Anarchy Reigns review (X360)

The multiplayer... the main focus of Anarchy Reigns and the obvious reason the game has been stripped of its former glory.

Centipede: Infestation (3DS)

Centipede: Infestation review (3DS)

Reviewed on September 08, 2012

Centipede: Infestation could best be described more as a reimagination than a bastardisation of the Centipede franchise. While only superficially resembling the classic arcade game, Infestation does borrow heavily from other arcade games of the era . In each of the game’s 40 stages, your primary mission is to survive, accomplished by sending endless bullet spray at overgrown wasps, spiders, ants and other assorted icky-crawlies, mowing them down by the hundreds with your tru...

Mega Man 6 (NES)

Mega Man 6 review (NES)

Reviewed on September 04, 2012

I want to reflect for a moment on how much Mega Man 6 represented the end of an era. The first Mega Man was released in 1987, only two years after the Nintendo Entertainment System came to Western shores. It appeared in the same year as Contra, Castlevania, and Metal Gear. It was the year that saw the American release of The Legend of Zelda and Metroid and, in Japan, Final Fantasy. There is n...

Rage (Xbox 360)

Rage review (X360)

Reviewed on September 03, 2012

When RAGE is in its comfort zone we're treated to a masterclass in brutal combat - a graduate from the Doom and Quake academy. Outside it we see a genuine attempt to step out of the shadow of those very classics, but without any meaningful success.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (Genesis)

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 30, 2012

In a way, the game feels like a return to form, since it flows more like the first Sonic title than the second, and dare I say, acts almost like the real successor to Sonic 1.

D review (3DO)

Reviewed on August 21, 2012

Tonight I bring you a review I had hoped never to write. I like to play my games before I pen something about them, but D left me with no such option. I don’t mean to imply that I watched a trailer or read the blurb on the back of the box in lieu of getting my hands dirty with what D has to offer, but the truth in the matter is that no one has ever genuinely played this game. Not even Kenji Eno, whose name blankets the end credits as lead producer, writer, and music composer!

Mega Man 5 (NES)

Mega Man 5 review (NES)

Reviewed on August 21, 2012

You know what the majority of Mega Man 5 feels like? It feels like a chore to complete before being allowed to play the real game. That game is to be found in the walls of the castle stages, where the challenge finally picks up and presents us with some of the best-designed death traps in Mega Man history. It might fall apart a little bit with the final bosses, but by the time you get there you’ll be ready to see the credit screen anyway, so you might not mind.

Illbleed (Dreamcast)

Illbleed review (DC)

Reviewed on August 19, 2012

Illbleed drives me nuts. It offers 1000 ideas from 1000 different sources. Some of them are good. Most feel out of place. All of these ideas combine to give Illbleed a unique feel when compared to other games within the survival horror genre, as well as on the Dreamcast. It’s like the developers threw everything they could think of at a wall and hoped that only the best would stick. Problem is, everything stuck and nothing was cut out, causing Illbleed to become lumbering and illogical. I...

Desert Demolition Starring Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote review (GEN)

BlueSky Software, who later went on to create the Vectorman games, should be commended for doing their homework, from successfully recreating the atmosphere and sound effects, to the vivid animations that make you feel part of its world.

Starship Hector review (NES)

Reviewed on August 17, 2012

It may seem like too much to take out a swarm of ships coming at you when you have to dodge four to eight bullets at the same time AND manage to take out the cannons to prevent further shots, but damn it, that first stage will teach you to do so, and you'll love it.

Limbo (Xbox 360)

Limbo review (X360)

Reviewed on August 12, 2012

I get the familial element thanks to scouring over Limbo’s title screen, which shows two dead bodies cast amid fly-ridden wreckage. By bringing in closure through finding this girl, it makes a sorrowful game like this a little easier to swallow. However, it would have been so cool, so unbelievably legitimizing to all the games out there that employed the “looping concept” that it makes no sense to me why Limbo wouldn’t do it here. I mean, c'mon, the game is called Limbo! Name me another game...
