    Dust 514

    I swear, if I hold onto the grenade any longer, it will explode in my hand...

    Curious by the freebie that is Dust 514, and having always admired EVE I decided to give this a go. I never played EVE, just something about it seemed overly complex and just too rich in content and new found sci-fi jarg... Read Full Review

    The small PROS and mass amount of CONS review for Resident Evil 6. Oh dear Capcom.

    Resident Evil 6

    The small PROS and mass amount of CONS review for Resident Evil 6. Oh dear Capcom.

    Some very bizarre choices made by one of the industries most experienced companies unfortunately makes for an even worse Resident Evil sequel than the 5th installment. To be honest I have a major problem with Capcom. ... Read Full Review

    Huge, amazing to look at with RPG elements and a lot of fun to be had but Far Cry 3 is far from perfect.

    Far Cry 3

    Huge, amazing to look at with RPG elements and a lot of fun to be had but Far Cry 3 is far from perfect.

    It's been a while since we saw the rather glamorous Far Cry 2 which took a whole new direction in the series narrative after changing developers from Crytek to Ubisoft. Ubisoft got rid of the mutants and sci-fi-type stor... Read Full Review

    Dragon's Dogma

    Capcom use their commercially made money for a very underwhelming RPG...

    Capcom have got a bit of a bad reputation in my books at the moment. The company that was once the highlight of all things original and new in gaming is now become a cash-in commercial developer with no "real" goals it w... Read Full Review

    Bugs, glitches and balancing issues aside, finally a sequel this year that's worth your time and money.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Bugs, glitches and balancing issues aside, finally a sequel this year that's worth your time and money.

    I've been a little disappointed with what were to be considered the best games of 2011 and some of the most demanded and exciting sequels. The likes of Batman, Modern Warfare, Battlefield and Assassins Creed are to name ... Read Full Review

    The once masters of the FPS world of gaming come up short on this over hyped basic shooter, covered in lush visuals.

    Rage

    The once masters of the FPS world of gaming come up short on this over hyped basic shooter, covered in lush visuals.

    I may have referenced Rage as unique a couple of times but it's only really down to its visuals (more its animation than graphical textures) and its vehicle driving and racing parts. It won't be remembered for its more o... Read Full Review

    No vehicles is a step in the wrong direction for this tiresome single player and dated multiplayer sequel.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    No vehicles is a step in the wrong direction for this tiresome single player and dated multiplayer sequel.

    MW3 was always going to be a popular launch and people were going to want to play it regardless of whether they think it's had its day or simply isn't up to the strength of Battlefield 3. Having not yet played Battlefiel... Read Full Review

    Dark Souls

    Yey! Let's spend hours leveling up, beat a boss and then do the same over and over and over again! Not boring at all...

    I can understand gamers wanting a challenge, I get that, and this game provides it but it doesn't provide it in an interesting way. Simply put, it just makes you grind out levels until you're ready to take on the next bi... Read Full Review

    Arkham City fills itself with extras and Riddler secrets that seem to take over from its story and character depth.

    Batman: Arkham City

    Arkham City fills itself with extras and Riddler secrets that seem to take over from its story and character depth.

    Batman Arkham City doesn't bring to the table the depth that Arkham Asylum had and instead swaps it for a much more heart pumping storyline (that's not quite as good as Asylums) where time is of the essence (although the... Read Full Review

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    Better than the first? Better than Invisible War? What's happened to Deus Ex...

    There was quite a bit of excitement in the air when the new Deus Ex game started to emerge. Being a major fan of the first game and appreciating its sequel we're now given this new prequel for the current generation. Muc... Read Full Review

    Better than the first or refined experiment? Scanning planets will eventually make you want to shoot yourself.

    Mass Effect 2

    Better than the first or refined experiment? Scanning planets will eventually make you want to shoot yourself.

    The first Mass Effect literally blew most of us away with it's amazing visuals and great mixture of RPG and Third-person Shooting. The sequel has refined the visuals to a point of hardly any troublesome glitches (Shepard... Read Full Review

    Zelda: Twilight Princess but with no Link and no Princess but with lots of blood and violence!

    So basically if you're a fan of the Zelda games and like going into a dungeon, finding a new item, grabbling hook for example, then using that item for the rest of the level and to defeat the dungeon boss with (after fin... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed II

    Refined first game or true sequel?

    Those who were fans of the first one and saw its potential only to be severely boned by the rubbish ending will still enjoy it's sequel. Shame however that the ending to the sequel is ever so slightly better than the fir... Read Full Review

    What a mess.

    Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

    What a mess.

    The first Mercenaries game was very enjoyable, giving quite a lot of variety in missions, weapons and destruction for its time. The sequel comes across as Sylvester Stallone's Get Carter or Mark Wahlberg's The Italian Jo... Read Full Review

    SoulCalibur IV

    Soul Calibur 4 brings all that the other prequels had and more.... so why does it feel like something is missing?

    I've been a big fan of the Soul Calibur series since the first Calibur landed on the Dreamcast... and I still regard it to be the best version. Whilst the second in the series brought more of the same, it's expansive rpg... Read Full Review

    Alone in the Dark

    Typical film obsessed games designers try to make a game from their source of inspiration.

    Alone in the Dark is a series that's struggled since it's first ground-breaker. Always attempting to be the next best thing but always forgetting what's needed and what's important. This new edition for the current gener... Read Full Review

    No where near as good as the first - rushed, linear and the focus is clearly on action.

    Ninja Gaiden II

    No where near as good as the first - rushed, linear and the focus is clearly on action.

    Being a top fan of the first xbox game of Ninja Gaiden (and still owning my copy of Ninja Gaiden Black) this was one of the most anticipated games for me of this year. However the release soon came about and it got me th... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto IV

    A cross between Shenmue (realism), Kane & Lynch (gameplay) and well, The Sims (bullsh*t)?? Get drunk it's hilarious!

    I've played the majority of GTA3 and Vice City and have never got to finish them simply because I got bored. But that doesn't mean I can't see the appeal behind GTA and especially behind GTA4. It's good yes, but like any... Read Full Review

    The first FPS where you actually feel human? Well, slightly human.

    Condemned 2

    The first FPS where you actually feel human? Well, slightly human.

    I'm always aware of sequels and how they aim to make things bigger, better and more clever. Does the new Condenmed do this over the original? Well yes and no. I'll leave the best part about this game until the end and te... Read Full Review

    Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume

    Surprising little gem.

    Once I was a big fan of RPGs, Eastern and Western but it was always the Eastern RPGs that would grab the most attention for me personally. After quite a long and dull period of non-existent, decent RPGs to come out I los... Read Full Review

    Addictive Good Fun!
