    Gore, electronica and a slick old school visual design combine to make a top rate, top down murder fest.

    Hotline Miami

    Gore, electronica and a slick old school visual design combine to make a top rate, top down murder fest.

    I'll get it out of the way. Hotline Miami is perhaps the best 80's themed cocaine-bloodlust infused top down murder simulator ever created! Now that might sound like a steep claim to anyone who hasn't yet had the joy of ... Read Full Review

    Refined tactics, neat presentation and a cheap price. Dust off your thinking caps.

    Frozen Synapse

    Refined tactics, neat presentation and a cheap price. Dust off your thinking caps.

    I'm a bit of a novice when it comes down to tactical strategy games. My previous experiences with the genre basically boiled down to me finding the game too complicated, too slow and required too much time and effort for... Read Full Review

    Zombies make the game enjoyable in short bursts, but aren't enough to bring it above overall mediocrity.

    Undead Knights

    Undead Knights is a hack 'n' slash game created by Tecmo for the PSP. The game sees you fight your way through a series of levels as one of three knights, killed by their King for suggesting the Queen's involvement in wi... Read Full Review

    'Red and Blue were lessons in expertly crafted RPG adventure games, Fire Red and Leaf Green buffed them to a shine'

    Everyone knows about the Pokemon craze that hit the world like an enraged Snorlax back in 1996. Schools were flooded with Pokemon cards, living rooms were filled with the sound of sweet Jigglypuff melodies and most peopl... Read Full Review

    Classic survival horror fare, but those without the stomach for old school convention should play the GC Remake instead.

    Resident Evil: Director's Cut

    Classic survival horror fare, but those without the stomach for old school convention should play the GC Remake instead.

    Having finished the original version of the game years ago and the Gamecube remake countless times, I felt the original Resident Evil experience in any form was just a happy memory for me, but since the director's cut ve... Read Full Review

    Heavy Rain delivers an entertaining cinematic experience, but its lack of traditional gameplay may put some players off.

    A great reimagining of a series that had started to lose its way, and one of the best titles on the Nintendo Wii.

    Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

    A great reimagining of a series that had started to lose its way, and one of the best titles on the Nintendo Wii.

    Silent Hill: Shattered Memories manages to nail a combo of similarity and refreshing new approach almost perfectly, a feat few games manage to achieve as part of a long running series. In the Silent Hill series' case, t... Read Full Review

    Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Pack

    Undead Nightmare is a great excuse to go back to Red Dead Redemption, and provides plenty of thrills,gore and humour.

    The somewhat familiar theme of a zombie apocalypse is brought to a refreshing new setting in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, and I'm pleased to say that this DLC provides not only an enjoyable new single player ex... Read Full Review

    Sonic Adventure is still a good game, starting to show its age, cheesier than Stilton but still definitely worth a look.

    Sonic Adventure

    Sonic Adventure is still a good game, starting to show its age, cheesier than Stilton but still definitely worth a look.

    Sonic Adventure was originally released back with the release of the Dreamcast console. Back then it was regarded as an instant classic; providing (for then) great graphics, a great sense of speed, an interesting variety... Read Full Review

    BioShock 2

    Offering plenty of deep sea thrills for fans and newcomers alike, Bioshock 2 is a great sequel and really worth a look.

    Making a sequel to one of the best games in recent memory and adding an interesting and enticing multiplayer component was never going to be an easy task. In many ways Bioshock 2 is as good as its predecessor and has lot... Read Full Review

    Obscure

    One of the hidden gems of the survival horror genre.

    While this may be more of a footnote rather than a review to what was a great game for the last gen console(s), and few people will probably read this, I would just like to state that if anyone is in to their survival ho... Read Full Review
