    A collection of excellent ideas and sketchy execution.

    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...

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

    Tsumi to Batsu: Uchuu no Koukeisha

    Rated on July 03, 2010 by Ninja-Hippo

    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 cas...

    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)

    Rated on June 28, 2010 by Ninja-Hippo

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

    Developers of the more popular franchises in the industry often find themselves struck with a dilemma of sorts; do they keep on with the same formula at the risk of becoming stale, or throw convention...

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

    Portal

    Rated on June 04, 2009 by Ninja-Hippo

    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'...

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

    24: The Game

    Rated on July 12, 2008 by Ninja-Hippo

    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 Playst...

    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

    Rated on February 28, 2008 by Ninja-Hippo

    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 i...
