    Part JRPG, part sidescrolling platformer, part shooter, part beat-em-up. All awesome.

    NIER

    Part JRPG, part sidescrolling platformer, part shooter, part beat-em-up. All awesome.

    NIer. An ugly game on the outside that holds within a beauty that other games only wish to possess. From the start you may be forgiven to think that it's some obscure ps2 HD remake that only came out in Japan first time ... Read Full Review

    Can Sonic relive past glory in Sonic Generations?

    Being an oldschool gamer and having had the luxury to play the original sonics first-hand being just a kid, I must say that I was intrigued by this game, and after buying it I felt anticipation and excitement as my ps3 s... Read Full Review

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

    Has the force been unleashed, or choker-chained?

    If you've played the first Force unleashed then you'll know what to expect. If you haven't, then go and play that instead, as it is the superior game. This game is alright to play, but it really does feel like a quick c... Read Full Review

    Gran Turismo 5 leaves the starting grid on flat tyres.

    Join the ranks in the war for Cybertron.

    How did Gamespot give this a 6.5? Transformers war for Cybertron has got to be the best Transformers game to date, even better then the Ps2 game based on the newer cartoons. Basically it's a prequel of everything that ... Read Full Review

    Armored Core: For Answer

    A good game rendered unplayable by a piss poor framerate. Shame.

    Love the concept and the customisation, even the simplistic graphics, but, with the PS3 moving such graphical monsters as KZ2,3 and Crysis2, why has this game got such a bad framerate? When things got hectic, it just got... Read Full Review

    Back to Helghan! Will we make it off alive?

    As far as PS3 exclusives go, the killzone franchise is certainly one of the best. After having played through KZ1 and the brilliant KZ2, I awaited with bated breath for the final installment in the trilogy. It was worth ... Read Full Review
