Grand Theft Auto IV
Professor Layton and the Curious Village
I found this in Zavvi for £10, and thinking that nothing can be all that bad for £10, and having seen some very positive user reviews, I stumped up the cash. I've spent the last 2 hours "playing" it. I have no idea... Read Full Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Gears of War
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse
My childhood is finally revisited - all those afternoons winning cash and prizes. Makes getting a 360 seem worthwhile!
I've been harping on about a re-make of Smash TV for months, if not years, and finally it's (almost) happenned. I have particularly fond memories of afternnons spent thrashing through Super Smash TV on the SNES - it was... Read Full Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Another review of an old school game, and another decision of whether to review it by today's standards, or the standards of the time. Well, if we take the former approach.... It's rubbish. The graphics are lame,... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
The Adventures of Bayou Billy
Conker: Live & Reloaded
I don't have XBox live. I *do* have a 2Mb/sec broadband internet connection, but I've just never had the urge to connect my XBox to it. That's not true: I've had the urge, I've just never acted on the urge. So the urg... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Blades of Steel - The Supreme Hockey Challenge
It's a constant amazement to me how computer games have advanced since I started playing them nearly 20 years ago. Maybe that should be the clue - it's been 20 years. My NES "Toaster-a-like" was my pride and joy, I was... Read Full Review3 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Could I be Spiderman? It's more likely than finishing Gambit's Level on this game. Easily the hardest SNES game ever.
When I was a litle kid, I wanted to be Superman. The Man of Steel was my hero. Then I realised that there was no way I could ever be Superman; I wasn't actually born on Krypton, Barnsley actually. Spiderman - now he w... Read Full Review11 of 11 users found the following review helpful
You'd have to be the world's biggest Alias fan to get any enjoyment out of this dissapointing licence.
Like most TV/Movie tie-ins, Alias seems to be made for conversion to a video game. Sydney Bristow, a sassy CIA agent works undercover using the latest gadgets, high kicking the bad guys and ultimately winning the day fo... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Perhaps the buggiest game I've ever played, but the continuation of Star Wars mythology makes it unmissable.
To bastardise the classic "This is Spinal Tap", KOTOR turns the value right up to 11. I'm no gaming genius, but I'm no slouch either, and Bioware's first foray into the Star Wars franchise sucked 42 hours from my life. ... Read Full Review1 of 4 users found the following review helpful
