    Alan Wake

    A collection of excellent ideas and sketchy execution.

    Alan Wake's story may appear to stray into cliched videogame territory from the get-go, as the protagonist struggles to overcome the odds to be reunited with his kidnapped wife much in the same way as Mario tackled Goomb... Read Full Review

    Star Successor is a fun, energetic, frantic and completely bizarre shoot 'em up from the makers of Ikaruga

    Tsumi to Batsu: Uchuu no Koukeisha

    Star Successor is a fun, energetic, frantic and completely bizarre shoot 'em up from the makers of Ikaruga

    Believe it or not, shoot 'em ups were once the dominant force in the video game industry, and no, we're not talking first-person affairs. On the contrary, we're talking about games which typically cast the player in the ... Read Full Review

    Splinter Cell Conviction lacks both the inventiveness and the production values of its much loved predecessors

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction (Collector's Edition)

    Splinter Cell Conviction lacks both the inventiveness and the production values of its much loved predecessors

    Have I lied to you? I mean, in this room?

    Portal

    Have I lied to you? I mean, in this room?

    Portal is an absolute gem of a game. Unlike so many other titles on store shelves today, it embraces a minimalist approach wherever possible, shunning the ultra-realistic vistas and flashy effects we're so used to in fav... Read Full Review

    24 is a brilliant recreation of the hit tv series. Sadly, that doesn't translate to a brilliant game.<br />

    24: The Game

    24 is a brilliant recreation of the hit tv series. Sadly, that doesn't translate to a brilliant game.<br />

    Oh 24, how i love thee. When i heard the best show on television was to be made into a game i was addmittedly, a little worried. For one, Sony have secured a deal so that it only appears on the Playstation, which immedia... Read Full Review

    Gears of War

    The first blockbuster for the XBox 360; though with the benefit of hindsight, it's really not all it's cracked up to be

    Gears of War has been elevated to blockbuster status since its release last winter. Much like Microsoft's Halo, it's become the game to own, the sequel to look forward to. Unlike Halo however, Gears is completely undeser... Read Full Review
