Dead Space (Xbox 360)

Dead Space review (X360)

Reviewed on September 06, 2010

Dead Space does not start out slow, as in cold blood slowly trickling down the hull-plating in low gravity. But simply slow. In fact, nothing happens. During the introduction, the main character sits completely still. Presently the ship you're on spins slightly dramatically out of control because of a malfunctioning autopilot, while a video of our hero's apparently desperately dying wife is playing in the background, and as a small mutiny is shaping up between the ensign and the captain - and ou...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days (PlayStation 3)

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days review (PS3)

Reviewed on September 06, 2010

Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days seems to get it. It is not a game that opens with a slow burn. It does not begin with a long, drawn-out cutscene. It does not begin with a slow-paced tutorial level that reminds you, the player, in the year 2010, that holding down the L1 button aims your gun while the R1 button fires it.

.hack Part 1: Infection (PlayStation 2)

.hack Part 1: Infection review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 04, 2010

Many years ago, I watched an anime called .Hack//Sign and absolutely fell in love with it. It told the tale of a young boy trapped inside the virtual reality MMORPG, The World, and how he copes with his existence. As other players heard of and attempted to unravel the mystery behind his condition, they discovered a series of potentially fatal anomalies involving the game’s own mythology. It was the sheer complexity of that mythology and the mystery behind it that drew me in so thor...

Ivy the Kiwi? (Wii)

Ivy the Kiwi? review (WII)

Reviewed on August 31, 2010

NO, this game has absolutely no connections with Kiwi Kraze (The New Zealand Story), other than they both use the word Kiwi in their titles. Ivy the Kiwi? has much more in common with Lemmings and Mario & Wario, where you are an invisible force that must guide a fast little bird through various mazes in a quest to find her mother. You aide the newborn by creating vines that'll help her climb over walls, or use them like shields against such dastardly foes as rats and water drops. Y...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days (Xbox 360)

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days review (X360)

Reviewed on August 23, 2010

I didn't think the first Kane & Lynch title, Dead Men, was a terrible game, but it did do a few things wrong that made it only an above-average product. The Campaign mode, for example, while it took gamers on a tour through various locations around the globe, was nothing more than a very basic hide-and-go-shoot action fest. Sure, there were a bunch of police, thugs, and mercenaries on screen trying to kill you, but it mostly felt subdued, especially since you had four or five AI buddies backing ...

As if 1995's WrestleMania: The Arcade Game wasn't enough Mortal Kombat style 'fun' in the guise of the World Wrestling Federation superstars, Acclaim came back the following year!

River City Ransom (NES)

River City Ransom review (NES)

Reviewed on August 20, 2010

In the military, it’s a type of inspection you don’t want to fail. In competition, it means you’re playing without advantages normally at your disposal. With “of the law”, it is the unbearable barb of the headline writer after a police force lifts its height restriction.

Kingdom Hearts II (PlayStation 2)

Kingdom Hearts II review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 20, 2010

The first Kingdom Hearts brilliantly blended the worlds of Disney and Final Fantasy in a refreshing and surprisingly unique tale. There, we followed Sora, the unsuspecting Keyblade Master who was ripped from his peaceful island home and separated from childhood friends Riku and Kairi. We watched as he met new companions and ventured through Disney-themed worlds, attempting to seal them from impending darkness. We helped him battle the Heartless, physical manifestations of evil, as ...

Shadow Hearts (PlayStation 2)

Shadow Hearts review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 20, 2010

On a train heading through China, Alice Elliot finds herself in custody of the Japanese military who intend to deliver the girl with mysterious powers to their homeland. Unfortunately a dapper English gent named Roger Bacon has other plans. He effortlessly summons hideous demons to devour the heads of the soldiers who meet their grisly demise without a fight. Bacon would have soon kidnapped Alice had it not been for a brash young man Yuri and his natural talents as a Harmonixer – one who transfo...

Limbo (Xbox 360)

Limbo review (X360)

Reviewed on August 19, 2010

Limbo is a neat little oddity of a game. It is at once fleshed out and involved but also unrelentingly minimalist. It's a 2D puzzle platformer in the truest sense - your task is to get from one end to the other, your tools are limited to movement, jumps, and "action" (usually grabbing things or pressing buttons). Everything is presented in a black and white style that manages to convey an impressive amount of detail despite being limited to soft, blurry (beautiful) silhouettes. You'll learn more...

In the glorious past, before all the words were used up, the winters were longer, and sequels could still rip off the original without losing all dignity - Particle Systems made Independence War 2: Edge of Chaos.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair review (X360)

Reviewed on August 14, 2010

Every Castlevania has its iconic hero, a lone warrior whose duty it is to follow in an ancient tradition of vampire killers. Simon Belmont. John Morris. Richter Belmont. Alucard. Each one of these heroes has made the solitary journey through the horrors of Castle Dracula, fighting valiantly through the Clock Tower, the underground dungeon, the Marble Corridors and Royal Chapel before climbing the stairs to the Count’s throne room. It is here that each of these lone individuals fulfils the...

WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game review (32X)

Reviewed on August 13, 2010

For wrestling fans, WrestleMania defines the sport. It is the single biggest event in the calendar, and, for more than a quarter of a century, has promised big matches, big celebrities, and a few hours of quality sports entertainment.

GunGriffon (Saturn)

GunGriffon review (SAT)

Reviewed on August 11, 2010

GunGriffon: The Eurasian Conflict is a first-person, giant mecha game that doesn't like to hold your hand. In fact, it'll kick you in the nuts if you don't learn to play properly immediately. Sure, it provides two optional, very simple exercises, but they're not great representations of the actual missions. What will surprise many people that play GunGriffon for the first time is that they'll be thrown right in the middle of a battle, literally having to hit the ground running. The...

Batman (Genesis)

Batman review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 10, 2010

The 1989 Batman movie completely refreshed the image of 'The Dark Knight'. If anything, the character had slowly begun to fade into obscurity (in visual form, at least) throughout the 70's and 80's, thanks to the awfully cheesy and twee 60's Adam West TV carnation.

Hustle Kings (PlayStation 3)

Hustle Kings review (PS3)

Reviewed on August 10, 2010

Out of all sports-games, I think virtual pool has always been the most pointless to me. You can't train for pocket-shots virtually, and typically the most appealing fantasy in these games has been to advance in a virtual snooker-league.

Showdown: Legends of Wrestling review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 09, 2010

When most of them were lacing up their boots, there was never the prospect of them being immortalised in a video game. So it felt only right to go back in time and revitalise some of the biggest names in the history of professional wrestling, showcasing them to a whole new audience for, perhaps, the first time.

WWF Raw (Genesis)

WWF Raw review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 09, 2010

The wrestling genre, as portrayed on home consoles, always lacked depth at this point. Games featured few characters, few modes, and few moves. They offered little satisfaction other than beating your friend by mashing and maiming your controller quicker than they did.

Worms (PlayStation 3)

Worms review (PS3)

Reviewed on August 08, 2010

Of all the games I’ve played for the PS One, Hogs Of War was quite possibly the most entertaining. It didn’t have phenomenal graphics, a powerful story or a brilliant soundtrack. But it had charm, unique characters and hilarious one-liners for nearly every pig. I thought it would have been loved by many. Sadly, most called it a knock-off, claiming that Worms was the original version, and far superior in nearly every aspect. When it finally came to the Playstation network, I snagged...
