Mario Kart Wii review (WII)

Reviewed on April 21, 2008

Love it or hate it, you have to respect the Mario Kart franchise. Spanning six systems, arcade units, remote controlled cars and widely known as the epitome of multiplayer racing, the series makes a welcome return to the Nintendo Wii. The motley crew of characters and weapons make an appearance along with the recent DS additions of online and retro throwbacks. While Mario Kart Wii adds a few more additions and changes, such as a new control scheme, changes to the drifting system, motorbikes and ...

Eternal Sonata (Xbox 360)

Eternal Sonata review (X360)

Reviewed on April 20, 2008

Eternal Sonata is the latest Japanese RPG from Namco-Bandai. Popular classical composer Frederic François Chopin is ill and is sleeping away what seems to be his end. In what he believes to be a dream, Chopin finds himself in a beautiful new world where he sports a chic top hat. With having a famous composer with the likes of Chopin in a video game, one could only imagine how exciting the plot could be. Does Eternal Sonata take advantage of this and create an adventure like no other?

Animorphs (Game Boy Color)

Animorphs review (GBC)

Reviewed on April 18, 2008

Individual missions, those which aid in the destruction of the Yeerks, are completely different from anything in the series. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it’s about the only good thing in the game, and it’s something that leads a player familiar with the series to wonder what comes next. Getting through these missions and to the next surprise, however, is a problem.

The World Ends with You (DS)

The World Ends with You review (DS)

Reviewed on April 17, 2008

One of the biggest criticisms of post Final Fantasy 6 Square-Enix titles is Tetsuya Nomura, that being the character designer for pretty much every Square-Enix title that isn’t Dragon Quest related. Criticisms of Nomura include that he has a fetish for belts and zippers, and that he loves making bad emo protagonists (Cloud and Squall from FF7/FF8 respectively). The World Ends With You was supposed to be proof that Squaresoft could make something that wasn’t a standard JRPG with Nomura’s designs....

Condemned 2: Bloodshot (Xbox 360)

Condemned 2: Bloodshot review (X360)

Reviewed on April 17, 2008

To put it bluntly, Ethan Thomas is crap. After the events of the first game, Condemned: Criminal Origins, he left the Serial Crimes Unit, became a drunk, and hangs around the homeless. Some irony, considering he was beating the crap out of them before. Well... some things don't change, because at the start of Condemned 2: Bloodshot, you find yourself using Ethan to fight a group of bums in the back of some alley. With his fists. It appears Ethan has developed the ability to fight with his...

Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword (DS)

Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword review (DS)

Reviewed on April 15, 2008

When a developer designs a DS action game around the touch screen, they’re just asking for trouble. All too often, action games that use the touch screen as the centerpiece of the experience end up playing like a complete mess. That didn’t stop Ninja Gaiden developer, Team Ninja, from trying. Amazingly, their newest effort, Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword, not only makes the touch screen work – it offers up some of the DS’ best thrills to date.

Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom (PlayStation 3)

Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

Sometimes I think that there is a tendency for developers to overlook some of the tried and tested genres in an attempt to appear all cutting edge. In the case of Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom I suppose this fact actually works in its favour as there is not exactly an abundance of hack n slash fighting games with which it needs to compete for attention. I understand that when it comes to creating games these days it is a big budget operation so developers need to do their best to stand out from...

Super Stardust HD (PlayStation 3)

Super Stardust HD review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

I realise that this game has been on the PSN for ages now, so I might be a little behind the times in writing a review for it. That said; I believe that this is still the best PSN download available and if there is anyone out there who has yet to get a copy then a little more convincing won’t go a miss. In fact Housemarque’s 3D shooter has now been around since June 2007 and I am itching for the updates promised in the games online store feature.

Resistance: Fall of Man (PlayStation 3)

Resistance: Fall of Man review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

Resistance was one the Playstation 3’s launch titles and it is pretty much a given that most early adopters of the system will already have a copy of this in their games collection. With the fact that the game is now coming up to its first birthday and the impending release of a sequel it is likely that this game will find itself among the first batch of Playstation 3 platinum titles. This has yet to be confirmed; as in fact has the existence of platinum games altogether. Taking into account ...

Ratchet & Clank: Future (PlayStation 3)

Ratchet & Clank: Future review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is the latest in the Ratchet and Clank series of games from Insomniac. Exclusive to Sony the series has already seen three successful outings on the PS2 and one on the PSP. Tools of Destruction is the first game in the series to appear on the PS3 and, despite the change in platform, sticks to the tried and tested formula of the previous four games.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (PlayStation 3)

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

Oblivion is the most recent game in Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls series; a series which can trace its roots way back to the 1994 PC game Elder Scrolls: Arena. Since that time the games remained solely PC based until the recent Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind which was released on both the PC and Xbox. Oblivion is the first in the series to be released on any Playstation and you only have to read any of the related reviews to realise what a great success it has been.

Heavenly Sword (PlayStation 3)

Heavenly Sword review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

Heavenly Sword is the hotly anticipated sword fighting game from Ninja Theory which was released exclusively on PS3 on 12/09/2007. The game plays in a very similar fashion to Ninja Gaiden Sigma, for any of you who have already played that and enjoyed it. If you open the controls menu the list of available attacks and their often long winded button press combinations will certainly look familiar. If you mastered Sigma then you should certainly have no problems here. There are, however, a numb...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, despite its misleading title is the fourth game in the Guitar Hero series. The previous three games were all released on the PS2 and were developed by Harmonix Music Systems. Guitar Hero 3, however, has been developed by Neversoft instead and has been released across an impressive array of platforms; PS3, PS2, Wii, Xbox, PC and Mac. Having played the previous Guitar Hero games on PS2 I can assure you that there has been little changed about the game despite the...

Go! Puzzle (PlayStation 3)

Go! Puzzle review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

Go! Puzzle is not one game in fact but three; Aquatica, Swizzle Blocks and Skyscraper. Each of these games can be downloaded from the PSN store individually or, for a slight reduction in overall price, as a pack of three. I won’t, as I haven’t in previous reviews, include the prices here as these vary between regional stores and occasionally over time. All I can suggest is that, if you are interested, you go and take a look. Go on, it won’t take long.

flOw (PlayStation 3)

flOw review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

I am struggling to come up with a game category in which to accurately place Flow and the more I think about it the less I believe that Flow is really a game at all. It is more of an experience I guess; released during the infancy of the Playstation 3 to give us an idea of what the machine is capable of. It isn’t graphically astounding and it hardly pushes the system to its limits but perhaps it was designed with another reason in mind; to demonstrate that the Playstation 3 doesn’t want to fol...

Enchanted Arms (PlayStation 3)

Enchanted Arms review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

There are not enough RPGs available on the PS3 for my taste at the moment and when I got my hands on a copy of Ubisoft’s Enchanted Arms I hoped that it would fill this unwelcome gap in my collection. In the end though I am afraid it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Don’t get me wrong, the game is not without its good points but overall it was not the next-gen experience that I was hoping for. Initially I was pleased to see that the game mimics the Final Fantasy style that I like so mu...

Burnout Paradise (PlayStation 3)

Burnout Paradise review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 14, 2008

Traditionally I am not a massive fan of driving games and I fail to get excited about the likes of Gran Turismo despite its impressive graphics and wealth of options. It all smacks a little too much of simulation to me and tuning up my suspension not only confuses me but bores me to death. Thankfully EA made the wise move of releasing a demo of Burnout Paradise on the PSN. If they hadn’t it is very likely I would have missed out on a truly amazing game.

My Hero (Sega Master System)

My Hero review (SMS)

Reviewed on April 12, 2008

Video-Games can provide us with many interesting experiences, even in the remote times of the SMS. If I wanted to feel like the ultimate scourge of nature, I could play “Safari Hunt” and shoot down hundreds of wild animals. If I wanted to feel like a true master of Karate, in Body and Spirit, I could play “Black Belt”.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on April 09, 2008

Within the last year I’ve been catching on with various nerdy catchphrases such as Naruto’s “Believe it!” and Link’s “Well excuuuuuuse me, princess!” from the animated cartoon series. After recently getting into the Ace Attorney games, pointing my arm out and shouting “Objection!” has become my new mannerism. There have been three Ace Attorney games released in the U.S. known as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. After the third game in the series, Trials and Tribulations, Phoenix Wright’s story c...
