    This time it's LV-1201 but it's LV-426 all over again, this time bigger & better in narrative.

    Aliens Versus Predator 2

    This time it's LV-1201 but it's LV-426 all over again, this time bigger & better in narrative.

    Wow, what a difference in a couple of years made to the graphics in this highly regarded sequel to AVP. As a sequel one may have expected a half-hearted follow up cashing on the success of the original game (which I hav... Read Full Review

    Terrorist Takedown: War in Columbia

    City Interactive's games have improved since this release ... alas, not by much ... at times it's so bad it's funny.

    I originally had to review this game in my July 2010 blog as GameSpot did not then have this game, which is essentially the prequal to Terrorist Takedown Covert Operations (TTCO, 2006) in its system. So here it is for t... Read Full Review

    Welcome passengers to LV-426, the locals are very much looking forward to meeting you.

    Aliens versus Predator probably doesn't need a long-winded introduction in terms of back-story as most would be familiar with the two great movie franchises, Alien and Predator, and the rather lamentable combined AVP mov... Read Full Review

    Die Hard: Nakatomi Plaza

    Yipee Ki Yay! Channel your inner Bruce Willis, or John McClane, and embark on a bullet riddled Xmas party to remember.

    Wow, no one has reviewed this game for a long time! Die Hard: Nakatomi Plaza (DHNP) is an 2002 single player FPS. It's more "run and gun" than "tactical" and it follows the (first) movie pretty closely, including the... Read Full Review

    Red Faction II

    Red Faction 2, like its predecessor, is a very satisfying, if not ground breaking, sci-fi FPS experience.

    Where to begin? Well Red Faction 2 (RF2) is indeed an engaging sci-fi shooter. The plot sadly does not follow on from the original title so we do not find out what happened to Parker and Eos. The story, which is somew... Read Full Review

    Red Faction

    Red Faction is a good, if not great, sci-fi themed FPS with many challenging "traditional" FPS missions.

    Red Faction is essentially a journey back to FPS 101 and indeed not a bad sci-fi journey. You play as Parker, a miner, pushed too far by the harsh overseers, that becomes a key player in a workers' revolt on Mars. The pr... Read Full Review

    The Hell in Vietnam

    Hell in Vietnam is a prime example of taking the popular 'Nam genre and failing to do anything positive with it.

    I have no one to blame but myself. I had read the reviews and even looked at YouTube videos and decided that this was probably one to avoid. But alas my eBay alert indicated that a pre-loved copy was available so despite... Read Full Review

    Sherlock Holmes, one of adventure gaming's most admired heroes, fails to inspire in this rather tepid early outing.

    Conflict Vietnam is a great hybrid 1st and 3rd person tactical shooter that captures that elusive 'Nam feel.

    Conflict: Vietnam (CV) is ostensibly a 3rd person tactical shooter commencing in 1968, during the Tet Offensive. Despite being branded a 3rd person shooter, in my experience you spend almost as much time in first pla... Read Full Review

    Kane and Lynch: Dead Men is much better than anticipated based on other reviews. Sometimes it's fun to play the bad guy.

    Admittedly Kane and Lynch: Dead Men (K&L) will not be everyones' cup of tea. The main characters, both escapees from death row, are hardly most people's idea of video game heroes. This game is very much in the anti-her... Read Full Review

    FEAR is a game driven by intense combat action and its enigmatic horror narrative set in a decidedly eerie world.

    Wow, what a game. Well after Area-51 and Far Cry, I was more or less used to the idea of horror/survival shooters, but FEAR has a far more moody atmosphere. Scary? Well, more so than the previously mentioned titles but i... Read Full Review
