    Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

    Not as bad as I feared, but nowhere near as good as I hoped.

    Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

    Not as bad as I feared, but nowhere near as good as I hoped.

    Back on the Playstation 2 Capcom experimented with Resident Evil adding an online survivor mechanic for Resident Evil Outbreak. Despite never being able to play it online in Europe I still loved that game and it's sequel... Read Full Review

    Haven't I seen this before?

    Other Life: Azure Dreams (Konami the Best)

    Haven't I seen this before?

    Azure Dreams very much reminds me of the film Groundhog Day. In the film Bill Murray constantly relives the same day of his life no matter what he does up to and including killing himself. How does this relate to Azure D... Read Full Review

    Captain America: Super Soldier

    Captain America's combat system manages to outweigh it's other issues to provide a fairly fun experience.

    They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. With that in mind Batman Arkham Asylum should be puffing it's chest out with pride because Sega's latest Marvel tie in game obviously thinks rather highly of it. That... Read Full Review

    Dragon's Dogma

    Pawn king.

    Some games don't need an engrossing plot to push them along. These games normally fall in the genres of racing, fighting and often platformers etc. Dragon's Dogma is not one of those games however. As an action RPG set i... Read Full Review

    Games may be art but it takes more than that to make a game.

    American McGee's Alice

    Games may be art but it takes more than that to make a game.

    Sometimes it's hard to give a game the leeway it may deserve in a review. American McGee's Alice is 13 years old at the time I finally got to play it. Originally a PC game ported to PSN and XBL in HD, and time hasn't bee... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty: Black Ops

    The infinite corridor.

    Black Ops is the first Call of Duty game I played (since went and played all three modern warfare games). I tried the multiplayer at a friends and found it surprisingly addictive and fast paced, not what I expected. Havi... Read Full Review

    A rare piece of DLC actually worth having.

    Dungeon Siege III: Treasures of the Sun

    A rare piece of DLC actually worth having.

    Downloadable content is something that has me rather torn. On the one hand I like the basic idea of DLC, additional content to a game that was developed after release to expand upon it. On the other hand this is rarely t... Read Full Review

    Proof that less can be more.

    Being different and being good aren't always the same thing. Many games have tried to stand out above other titles by using radically different game mechanics and simply failed due to trying to shoe horn them in where th... Read Full Review

    Mass Effect 3

    While a good game, Mass Effect 3 is a shadow of it's predecessors.

    Hype is a double edged sword that must be wielded carefully. On the one hand the extra publicity and excitement can really help push the games sales and fan base. On the other hand hype can help generate a cheque that th... Read Full Review

    A few issues aside, FFXIII-2 is a surprisingly addictive time traveling monster taming adventure.

    Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

    It looks great, it plays great, it is great.

    So wikipedia has the perfect description for the Uncharted series: Set piece, an elaborate sequence which sees either a chase, fight, or other action taking place in an original and memorable way. I simply don't ha... Read Full Review

    Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

    Not as good as it's predecessor but this budget game is still packed with explosive, yet mindless enjoyment.

    The first Earth Defense Force game I played was EDF 2017 back when I had an Xbox360. It was, and still is, one of the funnest games I have ever played. It didn't have a sweeping story line, the visuals were barely above ... Read Full Review

    Relic really nailed the Warhammer 40,000 feel.

    After many hours playing Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine I came to the conclusion there are simply four words I started to fear seeing and none of them are Orks or Chaos. Migrating to new host. You see as fun as the... Read Full Review

    A satisfying conclusion to Ezio's story arc but the short release schedule is really starting to show.

    At the end of 2007 Assassin's Creed came out. While flawed through it's repetition, it's excellent platforming, visuals and unique mechanics certainly made it stand out above most other releases at the time. Fast forward... Read Full Review
