    An otherwise boring third-person shooter made great by the strategy-style Build & Battle system.

    Starhawk

    An otherwise boring third-person shooter made great by the strategy-style Build & Battle system.

    Firstly, Starhawk is not a sequel but the successor to Warhawk. Also, I have no experience of the original Warhawk so I have nothing to compare it to. The best place to explain the game system is from multiplayer as t... Read Full Review

    Arkham Asylum was the best Batman game ever... until now.

    Batman: Arkham City

    Arkham Asylum was the best Batman game ever... until now.

    Anyone who has seen the old 60s TV series Batman with Adam West may deplore the serious and dark air that surrounds the Christopher Nolan films and the previous game, Batman: Arkham Asylum. That didn't seem to stop them ... Read Full Review

    Fighting and platforming is hard, but Rayne is still great fun despite the changes to her appearance and game style.

    BloodRayne: Betrayal

    Fighting and platforming is hard, but Rayne is still great fun despite the changes to her appearance and game style.

    Okay, so let's get the comparisons with the previous games out of the way first, shall we? This is a platform game rendered to look like a comic book, and yes plenty of blood gets thrown about. Yes, she's wearing a diffe... Read Full Review

    Braid

    If you're looking for a platform game that puts time (and mind) bending puzzles in your way, look no further...

    As far as moves go, the hero of this game is rather limited. You can jump, climb and pounce on enemies. Oh, you can carry keys as well. But your main ability is to control the flow of time. And we're not just talking rew... Read Full Review

    Outland

    The light and dark mechanics will keep you on your toes the entire time.

    Outland is the story of the Two Sisters, one controlling Light, the other Dark, who used their powers to create the world. Then tried to destroy it so they could try again. A lone hero rose up, as is the way of these thi... Read Full Review

    LIMBO

    With no major music, story, and the only colour on-screen being grey, it's amazing how immersive this game actually is.

    LIMBO

    With no major music, story, and the only colour on-screen being grey, it's amazing how immersive this game actually is.

    If you look on the Playstation Store, the description says something about a boy entering Limbo in search of his sister. If you enter the game however... it doesn't tell you anything. And I mean anything. Even at the end... Read Full Review

    Shadows of the Damned

    Interesting puzzle design mechanics coupled with solid game-play make this much more than your average shooter.

    Garcia Hotspur (yes, that is the character's name) has been killing demons for so long, they've gotten a bit peeved. They've kidnapped his girlfriend and taken her to hell. Along with his companion Johnson, Garcia gives ... Read Full Review

    LittleBigPlanet 2

    If anything was possible in the first game, the sequel's bag of new tricks is going to blow you away.

    The first thing to point out to LittleBigPlanet veterans is that the sequel can detect all the Sackboy outfits, Pod decorations, objects, materials, stickers etc, you gathered, created or built from the first game. When ... Read Full Review

    For basic platforming, level creating and file sharing, a very select few games deliver a master-class in how it's done.

    LittleBigPlanet

    For basic platforming, level creating and file sharing, a very select few games deliver a master-class in how it's done.

    OK let's get the one bad thing out of the way straight away; it takes time to create a level worthy of being played. You have to play-test it repeatedly to try to find problems, then you have to solve them. And it does t... Read Full Review

    While random physics sometimes prevent you from getting the full rating for a level, it is rather hard to stop trying.

    Angry Birds

    While random physics sometimes prevent you from getting the full rating for a level, it is rather hard to stop trying.

    Some green pigs have stolen the bird's eggs, and are hiding inside fortresses. What's a flock to do? Use an oversized slingshot to fire themselves into the fortresses to bring them down of course! Ok so the story's a ... Read Full Review

    If madness really did look this good, I suspect more people would take it up as a career.

    Alice: Madness Returns

    If madness really did look this good, I suspect more people would take it up as a career.

    Alice is back in Wonderland but hasn't quite managed to shake off her personal demons yet. In fact Wonderland is in worse shape (metaphorically speaking) than ever thanks to Alice's weak mental state following her famili... Read Full Review

    Dead Nation

    Impressive detail and interactivity make this Dual-Stick Shooter stand out from the crowd.

    Yep, a zombie-creating virus is on the rampage. Again. And while Dead Nation doesn't do anything clever with its story or the bad guys, it hardly matters in the face of the game-play itself. As a Dual-Stick Shooter, y... Read Full Review

    Cole lights up our screens again with a brilliant and more involving follow-up.

    When Cole MacGrath first exploded onto our consoles with inFamous, it created a unique kind of game; a regular guy given electric superpowers by a device called the Ray Sphere. And the best superheroes are the ones when ... Read Full Review

    Duke Nukem Forever

    The Duke is back, baby! And... well if I'm being honest, I was expecting more.

    First thing I should point out is I'm a big Duke Nukem fan. And yes, I dared hope this game would blow us away. It doesn't fall completely flat, but it's nothing truly special either. Purely as a first-person shooter, it... Read Full Review
