NBA 2K9 (PlayStation 3)

NBA 2K9 review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 10, 2008

Though you can acquire almost the exact same experience from NBA 2K8, you have to play 2K9 to experience the living rosters (which allows 2K Sports to update your rosters as the sport evolves in real life), full five-on-five multiplayer and updated Association mode. Basketball fans will love how the game changes when every teammate and every opponent is controlled by a real player. Gone are the days of shouting at the screen because the AI screwed up – now you’ll spend these moments shouting at your friends.

Namco Museum: Virtual Arcade (Xbox 360)

Namco Museum: Virtual Arcade review (X360)

Reviewed on November 10, 2008

Namco truly was at the top of its game when the selections here were originally produced. The result for today's retro gamer is a backlog that includes familiar classics such as Mappy, Pac-Mania, Xevious and Pole Position. Many of those have been offered numerous times in past compilations, so some extra treasures have been added to the mix. Rally-X, King & Balloon, Dragon Buster and The Tower of Druaga are all examples of quality games that you may have heard of but never tried for yourself. Now you can.

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War (Xbox 360)

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War review (X360)

Reviewed on November 09, 2008

Some would say it's better to be remembered in death than not remembered at all. That is the motto of the mercenaries — the warriors who didn't give a damn about national pride, the warriors who sacrificed their lives for a one-in-a-million shot at immortality. Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War is their story.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 3: Baddest of the Bands (PC)

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 3: Baddest of the Bands review (PC)

Reviewed on November 09, 2008

It was somewhere around the middle of Baddest of the Bands that it became obvious the series was almost more sitcom than game. At the time, I was attempting to set a car on fire, so that I could take a picture of it for an album cover which I would use to win a contest to recruit celebrity judges. I needed celebrity judges to hold a benefit concert, raising money to repair my video game console. A worthy cause if ever there was one.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia review (DS)

Reviewed on November 06, 2008

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia is a really good Castlevania game, and among the best games on the DS.

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel (PC)

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel review (PC)

Reviewed on November 06, 2008

This prequel to 2004 Diablo-clone Sacred seems to be suffering from an identity crisis. In attempting to combine in-depth role-playing with hack-and-slash action and odd, self-depreciating humour, Sacred 2 manages to miss the mark in all the key areas, emerging as a horrendously dull and needlessly fiddly release.

Lightning Warrior Raidy (PC)

Lightning Warrior Raidy review (PC)

Reviewed on November 06, 2008

But if you're expecting an amazing, old-school crawler experience like Wizardry or the more recent Etrian Odyssey like I was, well... This isn't it. Lightning Warrior Raidy is littered with a ton of flaws that make it a hard recommendation for all but the most desperate of dungeon crawler fans.

Tak and the Guardians of Gross review (WII)

Reviewed on November 06, 2008

It’s charming for younger gamers, but not really worth more than a rental thanks to its brevity.

The Sims 2: Apartment Life (PC)

The Sims 2: Apartment Life review (PC)

Reviewed on November 05, 2008

Once you're happily—or unhappily, if art imitates life—dwelling within your humble abode, the differences don't necessarily stop. If you've moved into someone's apartment, they're not going to look kindly on you knocking down walls or making major renovations, so put such thoughts out of your head. Instead, you can focus on the usual things that have for so long been a staple of the series: interior decorating.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 (Xbox 360)

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 05, 2008

You finally accept that you're safe. You switch off. Thoughts of caution are pushed to the back of your mind and you think about the next trial, the next slice of war. You're wrong to do so. There's not going to be a happy ending.

NBA 2K9 (Xbox 360)

NBA 2K9 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 05, 2008

Put simply: it doesn’t get better than this for videogame basketball. NBA 2K9 basically took a blueprint which was already established as genre-defining and leading, and made some tweaks in order to provide the best experience available. That being said, my score reflects the fact that they left room for improvement for subsequent releases -- this year's minor refinements are just that: minor.

X Com: Terror from the Deep (PlayStation)

X Com: Terror from the Deep review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 04, 2008

You start the game with bloody harpoons guns! The only way to close the vast technologic gap between races is to slaughter in mass number, steal the weapons from their corpses, and have your boffins at home make you human-friendly versions.

Wow (PC)

Wow review (PC)

Reviewed on November 02, 2008

At first glace, it’s just an empty room. After moving around for a while, it remains an empty room. You will decide it is an empty room and is the epitome of awful .wad construction. You will be proved wrong. Against all odds, it manages to get worse. Worse than an empty room.

Fallout 3 (PC)

Fallout 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 02, 2008

Fallout 3 threw me completely off-balance. It took a while of playing to realise (not to mention a few "this is brilliant, right?" conversations), but the fact is inescapable: Bethesda's interpretation of this devastating nuclear wasteland is truly, monumentally astounding.

SNK Arcade Classics: Vol. 1 review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 01, 2008

SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 does a commendable job of bringing you more hits than misses in its library of sixteen titles, and carries along with it a few surprise packages in game you would have never played but far from regret spending time with.

Doodle Hex (DS)

Doodle Hex review (DS)

Reviewed on November 01, 2008

Rarely are the nuances of a game so succulently wrapped up in a game’s very title; Doodle Hex is all about slinging spells, curses and arcane incarnations through sketching runes on the touch screen in a frenzied attempt to out-wizard emo rock fairies, millennia-old, pre-teen Norse goddess, Valley-girl witches and flaming djinns hailing from Brooklyn.

Runaway: The Dream of the Turtle review (DS)

Reviewed on October 31, 2008

A well made adventure with mostly enjoyable puzzles and a distinct, goofy personality that deserves your attention. Don’t let the silly title or the cel-shaded look fool you.

Blitz: The League II (PlayStation 3)

Blitz: The League II review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 31, 2008

With an official license out of their reach, Midway has created an intricate world that celebrates the most unsavory aspects of the professional sports crime blotter. Gratuitous violence is king on this penalty-free, 8-on-8 gridiron, but off the field there's even more trouble: designer drugs, demanding sponsors, and fast women. If you think the NFL really has regulated out its essence and become a game for pansies, then Blitz: The League II is exactly for you.
