    Codemasters should be ashamed of themselves

    Brian Lara International Cricket 2007

    Rated on December 17, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Codemasters should be ashamed of themselves

    Brian Lara ICC Cricket 2007 is a dismal attempt at rendering cricket on a console. Every aspect of the game is grossly undercooked and near broken, from the limited statistics (in a test you can't eve...

    Assassin's Creed

    Rated on November 16, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    It's a shame when a great idea for a game doesn't deliver. Assassin's Creed is an ambitious but disappointing effort.

    The premise for assassins creed is great, a stealth game set in medieval Jerusalem. if it's done authentically with attention to detail then that in itself could be the makings of something special. W...

    The Orange Box

    Rated on November 15, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Unbelievabley amazing value for 5 involving and interesting games with great concept and execution.

    Wow. I am writing my review before finishing my experience with this game because I imagine that the Orange Box is going to keep me occupied for a lot longer, than the average 360 game. For now i'...

    It's a blast, some interesting ideas but the game lacks depth in many areas, pick up and play for a while, it's fun

    Crackdown is going for pretty cheap now. I picked it up for £15. I have to say I really enjoyed playing through the 21-boss gang -war kill- fest in Pacific City, some fictional geographically improbab...

    Squad based game with terrible AI making your team mates more of a problem during combat than the enemy are.

    Clive Barker's Jericho (Limited Edition)

    Rated on October 29, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Squad based game with terrible AI making your team mates more of a problem during combat than the enemy are.

    Jerico is an icredibly linear game with only two dynamics, killing bad guys and watching cutscenes. You can't interact with the environment, save for a few levers and walls, the environments are also ...

    Two Worlds

    Rated on October 05, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Although it shows some brief glimpses of promise, Two Worlds is just a down right awful game

    Oh dear. My character has just spent the last hour having his horse uncontrollably ride him around the countryside stopping frequently for lag and jumpy loading times. After ditching the stupid horse ...

    Halo 3

    Rated on October 03, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Awesome graphics and good controls, fun for a while but gameplay gets old quickly

    Not being a Halo fan and having not played the previous installments, I bought Halo 3 due to it being touted as "best thing since sliced bread" and the fact that it has been given high scori...

    Xevious

    Rated on September 24, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Xevious will kill your thumbs.

    Xevious stands up pretty well today as long as you can appreciate the retro presentation. it's a little on the slow side and it's very punishing on the thumbs, what with the manic rate of fire you'll ...

    Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis

    Rated on September 24, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    An excellent game of Ping Pong, fun ,addictive and great to play against friends

    It may sound odd to some but Rockstar Table Tennis was one of the games that sold me the console. Next-Gen Ping Pong! It just seemed to come out of left-feild and was endearing to see Rockstar, famed ...

    Burnout Revenge

    Rated on September 24, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Burnout Revenge is fun to begin with but it soon gets tiring.

    I just can't seem to get to grips with car racing games unless there is some other, preferably destructive, activity to accompany the driving. I'm a fan of the old Twisted Metal series and I thought I...

    Hitman: Blood Money

    Rated on September 24, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Simulatied contract killing has never been so much fun!

    Hitman Blood Money is a great game. The level designs are interesting and there are many alternative solutions to each of the assignments. One of the stand out missions for me is "A New Life&quot...

    Doom

    Rated on September 24, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Doom rocks, anyone who says otherwise will be banished to the seventh plane of Hell.

    XBLA welcomes Doom to the 21st century and it's just as bloody as I remember it. Nostalgia plays a huge part in my high rating for this game because I love Doom and have done since the early 90's. ...

    Kameo: Elements of Power

    Rated on September 19, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Good kids game, older gamers will get tired of it quickly

    I'm 25. If I was 13, or perhaps even a bit younger, Kameo would probably hold my attention for a lot longer than it did. I saw it in the bargain bin and thought i'd give it a whirl. There's a good var...

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas

    Rated on September 18, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Amazing multiplayer, all round it's one of the best games out there.

    This is the best multiplayer game I have ever played. It is so much fairer than say Gears of War and, although it helps, you don't have to know every map like the back of your hand because you have a ...

    BioShock

    Rated on September 16, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Great atmosphere and interesting post-apocalyptic story. Video gaming at its best.

    The plot and characters of computer games very rarely interest me, they are usually hammy and cliched. Bioshock has a more gritty feel to it without trying too hard, more akin to the fallout series in...

    Gloom Raider

    The first couple of levels in Tomb Raider Legend are interesting with a nice mix of combat, platforming, puzzles and action bike riding scenes. However once you progress into the 2nd half of the game ...

    Solid, basketball, great variety of options, long life span.

    NBA 2K7 is a great game. The controls are responsive and the graphics are awesome. The online mode holds up very well. I've had the most fun playing through a season as the New Jersey Nets. The manage...

    Manic adrenaline fueled teeth grinding fun.

    Retarded spacial awareness leads to high mortality rate.

    It's 1882, the Wild West. Whiskey drinking scoundrels and STD infested whores await behind every turn but the biggest cause of death isn't lead, TB or gonorrhea but, yep you guessed it: poor spacial a...

    Dated badly. Some truly terrible music, sluggish gameplay.

    I bought this game for £10 today I played it for about 40 mins and have no intention of playing it again. The game play feels very sluggish and imprecise. The guns have no oomph to them. The mus...

    Shadowrun

    Rated on June 04, 2007 by 7-ate-9

    Shadowrun is an innovative, fast paced and fun FPS that rewards creative thinking and has much content in its gameplay.

    It is sad to see Shadowrun getting punished by a critic because it doesn't follow the conventional routine of clone FPS games (of which there are far too many). To say that Shadowrun lacks content is ...
