What a shame it doesn't live up to it's console cousin!
So I'd like to start by saying I am a big fan of the WRC series and have the last 3 iterations for the Xbox. I was excited to see a Vita version but decided to rent it first just in case it was identi...
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
Lego Batman 2 is a great addition to the ever growing Lego series!
The first thing I want to make clear is that this is a different type of review! Different I hear you ask....in what way different? Well I haven't actually played the game - nor have I played any of t...
Asphalt 3D: Nitro Racing
Anyone who has played Asphalt before will not be surprised!
So this latest game in the Asphalt franchise was a launch title for the 3DS here in the UK. If you have played Asphalt games before then this will be no real shock to you. Gameplay Very arcadey raci...
nail'd is an off-road arcade racer that has an insane sense of speed
nail'd is an off-road arcade racer following on from the likes of Pure and MotorStorm but doesn't quite live up to the standard set by those games. Environment - the tracks are very well designed w...
Arcade racing at it's very best!
Split/Second is so much more than a one trick pony - it has taken the basic concept of Ridge Racer and improved upon it while adding some new modes to the mix! Story: Do arcade racers need a story...
Definitely the best MotoGP game to date, still not perfect though.
First I'd like to make it clear that I am not a major MotoGP fan nor have I ever owned a motorbike. I do however like playing racing games on my PS3 and it is from that point of view I have written th...
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing
After a long wait we have a decent Kart racer on the PS3
So any kart racer on any console inevitably draws comparisons with Mario Kart and until now all have come up short - Madagascar Kart Racing anyone?? So what does Sonic and SEGA All-star Racing ( SA...
It's a shame that a nice idea was ruined by load times and unnecessary story line and cut scenes!
I'm always on the look out for good puzzle games but, having read the reviews already on here I rented it first - and was that one of my better decisions? YES! Gameplay: An interesting sideways en...
Need for Speed: Shift
Great addition to the NFS (PSP) collection with just one major flaw......
As a fan of NFS I was looking forward to this title and initial impressions were positive. It has a nice arcade feel to it without being over the top. A good selection of cars, tracks and race modes a...
Forza Motorsport 3
A major improvement on the previous iteration!
So where shall I start? Well Forza 3 is an excellent racing game and by far the best offering on the Xbox 360. There are over 400 cars to choose from and many different tracks and track variations. T...
Awesome racing sim - possibly the best racer on the PSP
So after many long years of waiting Gran Turismo for the PSP has finally arrived, so the question is....was it worth the wait? The answer to that is a resounding yes, with 800 cars, 35 tracks with a ...
MotorStorm Arctic Edge
So could the MotorStorm series transfer to the PSP?? Read on to find out.
I was a fan of the MotorStorm series on the PS3 so was looking forward to picking up my copy of this and it does NOT disappoint! In a nutshell the graphics are superb, track design is inspired and spe...
Need for Speed: Shift
A game with personality disorder - but brilliant none the less
NFS Shift goes to sleep at night thinking "am I a sim or am I an arcade racer" to which there are two sensible answers: 1. Enough of both to please fans of both 2. Who cares because the game is bril...
OMG a DS game for the PSP
Well having already got the PS3 version and in desparate need of a new racer for my PSP it was with some excitement I picked this up - but boy was I in for a shock. None of the fantastic graphics, far...
Pangya Fantasy Golf
A review said "better than Hot Shots Golf" and I though nah can't but....well read on but I'm convinced!
I don't normally buy games without renting first but since this game isn't out in the UK and as far as I know there aren't any plans to I had to make a "leap of faith" based on te reviews - and boy am...
Intelligent License 2
Good improvement on the original!
Well I currently have a copy of this on rental and am enjoying it! I played the original game but it got boring after a while so I was looking forward to trying this out. Concept: Simple - you are...
Better than I expected given the reviews!!
Well I have been playing my rental copy of Fuel for the past 2 days and thought it was about time I put "pen to paper" so to speak. Overview: In summary an offroad racing game with the largest (to...
Wii Sports Resort (w/Wii MotionPlus)
If you liked Wii Sports you'll love this follow up!
Well where to start? In short 12 mini-games all of which are sports based, each with 2 or 3 variations showing off the new motion plus to perfection. As the official review says, this game is much ...
Akiyama Jin Kyouju Kanshuu: Zennou JinJin 2
Glad I rented this first!
As a fan of puzzle/brain training type games I always look forward to new releases. However, particularly in the brain training category, games over the last few years have been a bit hit and miss to ...
MotorStorm: Pacific Rift
Is it the best off road racer on PS3 to date? Well I have rated it the same as Pure since I can't decide between them!
I should start by saying I didn't play the original game - although I may now pick up a bargin priced copy! So overall - Wow and wow. Lots of fun and a must have title for any serious off road fan an...
Midnight Club: Los Angeles
Easily the best open world racer on PS3 to date
As a fan of racing games but with a tendancy to prefer the more perscriptive type game rather than open world I went into this game not expecting too much - but boy was I mistaken. Graphics: 1 word -...
Much Much Much better than SBK!
Having enjoyed the previous Motogp title on the PSP and having been disappointed by the SBK title for the PS3 (see my review for that) I had high hope for this and it didn't disappoint! All 18 trac...
Baja: Edge of Control
Great idea, lousy implementation
Well where to start? I love this type of game and had been looking forward to it's release with a great deal of anticipation. The gamespot review put me off a little so I rented it first....and boy am...
Dr. Reiner Knizia's Brainbenders
Good fun to start with. Challenging. Good fun if you have a competitive spouse
I normally feel that the official reviews of this type of game are overly critical and this one was no exception. However some good points were made. General: Bunch of puzzles wrapped up in a "so...
Given the wealth of off road driving games would Pure cut it! Oh baby it surely did!!
As a fan of this type of game I was looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of Pure...and it did not disappoint. I'll start by saying that the graphics are amazing and a lot of detail has gone ...
SBK-08 Superbike World Championship
As a fan of the racing genre I had high hopes....was disappointed!
OK so I had been long looking forward to this as I do to most new racing games and here are my initial thoughts. Grapics: Good and framerate seems solid Sound: Fine (I don't think sound is that impo...
Good solid racer with plenty of options
Firstly I am British and have never seen a Nascar race in my life, nor have I ever played a Nascar game before, BUT I love racing games. So I rented this title first...I love it and it's now top of my...
YES! Finally a "break the block" game for a handheld that works!
There have been several attempts to bring this sort of game to the DS (nervous brickdown/brick 'em all to name a couple) but this is the first one that really works. The Good: Controls are excell...
Much better than Bejing Olympics - fun like this sort of game should be!
My wife and I have fond memories of playing international track and field on the PS1 back in the day and so we had been looking forward to some of this summers offerings. Bejing Olympics was overall d...
Wow and Wow again.
Well where to start. Not having been a great fan of the series previously I was curious to see how it stood up on the PS3 compared to other great racing titles such as Ridge Racer, Burnout and of cour...
Beijing 2008 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games
Hard on the fingers or arms but some of the games are great fun
I think some of the "official" review comments were spot on but overall I think worth a slightly higer score. Graphics are excellent and a lot of time has clearly been pumped into the detail, so a pl...
Namco Museum Remix
Not what you hoped for!!
Well I am a big fan of Namco Museum games (the one for the PSP still remains one of my top 5 PSP titles) but I am so so so very glad that I rented this first!! So where to start: There are several g...
FlatOut: Head On
Awesome! The racing game the PSP has been waiting for
What a great racing game. A must for every fan of the genre! With it's lengthy career mode and the excellent carnage mode with a whole variety of mini games from bowling to darts to the high "jump" th...
Top Spin 3
Great graphics, tough controls! Not many of the top players!
As a long time fan of the Virtua Tennis series it was with interest that I finally tried a topspin game. I was very impressed with the level of detail in the graphics and some neat career options. How...
Great budget priced game. Well worth a look.
Well, where to start. I rented this game over the weekend and very rapidly got to 25% complete and hardly dropped a leg, never mind having to replay a level. I was just starting to think - bit easy th...
Good attempt to bring "Brain Training" to the PSP
Whilst the DS market is a little overcrowded with this type of game, for the PSP they are few and far between. I agree with the gamespot comment about 15 not being very many games but in the practice ...
Nounai Kakusei Honeycomb Beat
Great Idea. A nice new take on an old concept
Once again I feel that GS have been overly harsh on an inovative DS game that makes good use of the touch screen. Honeycomb Beat is a nice little puzzle game that starts off a touch on the easy side a...
Kimochi yosa Rensa Puzzle: Trion Cube
Cute puzzler with some nice touches
Yeah, ok so everyone says it's a bit on the easy side. On the other hand not everyone who plays games is a gaming addict and as such might well see this as a bit more of a challenge. There is plenty o...
Awesome speed sensation - contender for best racer on PSP
I didn't rush out and buy this straight away as I thought the Legends version was a bit over rated and have never been a huge fan of the series. My curiosity got the better of me though and I picked i...
