    Ape Escape

    A rare 3D platformer that is both fun and innovative. On top of that, it's got monkeys. Lots and lots of monkeys.

    Whenever a genre in video games gets popular and leads to numerous developers clamouring to recreate that success, it soon becomes hard to innovate in that particular area. Think about all the first person shooters out r... Read Full Review

    Metroid Prime

    Metroid Prime is a totally immersive experience with solid controls, addictive gameplay and lush visuals. Brilliant.

    When I was younger I didn't like Metroid Prime. It was slow, empty, dull and nowhere near as exciting as the other first person shooters on the market. It wasn't until many years later when I sat down with the game again... Read Full Review

    If you like Metroid, chances are you won't like this game. If you don't like Metroid, you'll probably enjoy it.

    Metroid: Other M

    If you like Metroid, chances are you won't like this game. If you don't like Metroid, you'll probably enjoy it.

    I don't know whether it was because I recently played Metroid Prime but Metroid Other M is a flawed game and a massive disappointment for fans of the series. The game fails to capture the sense of isolation and explorati... Read Full Review

    Uncharted 3 is a solid game but hardly the masterpiece I was hoping for.

    Uncharted 2 was a masterpiece of modern gaming, delivering a thrilling single player campaign that rivalled the best of Hollywood with an addictive online multiplayer added for good measure. Well the third installment is... Read Full Review

    Media Molecule outdo themselves with this fantastic platformer worthy of everyones attention.

    One of the funniest things about LittleBigPlanet is that a lot of people say they just don't get it. Even though it's probably one of the easiest games to play in this age of chainsaw wielding, twin stick shooting, knife... Read Full Review

    Prince of Persia is a fantastic game that introduces some great new innovations into the gaming landscape.

    It's always hard to make the jump to 3D and not everyone succeeds at it. Sonic the Hedgehog for example produced some wonderful 2D games but his 3D endeavours have been less then great. Prince of Persia makes this trick... Read Full Review

    Uncharted 2 is a truly interactive Summer Blockbuster and the superb online multiplayer is just the icing on the cake.

    Billy Hatcher is a fun game that gets nearly everything right but its the little things that screw it up.

    Brilliant controls cannot save this game from being anything but a lackluster, ugly and dull first person shooter.

    The Wii has never been truly blessed with a solid first person shooter (Metroid Prime 3 is a action adventure game so that does not count) and many of the FPS's on the Wii are either lazy ports from old systems or new ga... Read Full Review

    F-Zero GX is a hard game and gamers who get easily frustrated will probably best avoid this game. Everyone who doesn't will probably love its hardcore challenge and its tight difficulty curve. But enough about its diffic... Read Full Review
