Dead Space 2
Multiplayer aside, Dead Space 2 provides the atmosphere, tension and thrills that AAA action titles rarely deliver.
There was a point in Dead Space 2 where, alarms were going off, lights were flashing an ominous orange. I dimly recalled this sequence from the original Dead Space, which meant I also recalled how it ...
Batman: Arkham City
Batman returns in terrific form, building on the near flawless groundwork of Arkham Asylum to varying degrees of success
If you want to talk about surprises in gaming you talk about Batman: Arkham Asylum. A videogame based off a hugely popular comic and film franchise is almost certainly doomed mediocrity, yet the then ...
Supergiant Game's debut couldn't be more impressive if it tried
Supergiant Game's Bastion can be described in many different ways depending on your understanding of its intent. Some would boil it down to an isometric action-RPG, others would describe it as a quirk...
God of War III
By any standard you go by; God of War 3 is a phenomenal action experience that rounds off Kratos's adventures in style.
How do you follow up on a yardstick? It's a question that only the very best developers have to answer; how do you make a sequel to one of the greatest games ever made? Do you pump it out a year later...
Uninspiring artistic direction, gameplay changes and a weak story make this otherwise superb FPS an unworthy sequel
Presentation/Synopsis: Insomniac's Resistance Fall of Man was what made the PS3 worth buying back in 2006 and ensured 360 owners would sit up and take notice. Stable and impressive graphics, superb...
Crytek create a strong campaign and a enjoyable multiplayer which is brought down by a plethora of bugs and oddities
Crysis will always be a point of contention amongst the sad fraternity known as "gamers". For PC gamers it is (was) the last bastion of their world beyond the RTS and MMO genres. "Can I run Crysis?" t...
God of War Collection (Ultimate Combo Pack)
Two of the greatest action games ever made are remastered in HD in all their bloody glory. Go. Buy.
If ever there was a series that defined the waning years of the Playstation 2 system it would be God of War. The two games not only defined how modern action games would be designed from then on, they...
Limited only by its brevity and technical shortcomings, Portal 2 is probably the best game you will play this year.
In 2007 the original Portal was packaged as an interesting experiment sandwiched between two genre heavy-weights, Half Life 2 and Team Fortress 2.Far from being overshadowed by it's more value-laden b...
Ratchet & Clank 3 (Platinum)
Superb combat and an action oriented focus make Ratchet and Clank UYA one of the best games ever released on the PS2
Ratchet and Clank was one three Sony first party series on the PS2 designed to provide the revenue to power Sony's console through the early 2000's. Released back in 2002 the original garnered a signi...
Split/Second's destructive gimmickry coupled with its flash presentation will only hold your interest for so long
In recent years the sub-genre of arcade racing games has been slowly approaching extinction. The countless Need for Speed titles pumped out by Black Box Studios at the behest of EA killed many arcade ...
Ratchet & Clank Future 2
Insomniac cut the Ratchet formula down to its core components and give us the best game in the series
This is my review for Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time Presentation: A Crack in Time picks up directly from where the disappointingly short Quest for Booty left off, Clank has been kidnapped b...
Sucker Punch's exceptional gameplay and strong story is marred by an unimaginative world and poor design choices
This is my review for inFamous Presentation/Synopsis: inFamous starts with a literal bang, there's no difficulty select, simply pressing start will throw you into the infamous story. It's a stro...
Resistance: Fall of Man
Fall of Man steals and modifies the best elements of past games to make a remarkable and enjoyable if unoriginal FPS
Over the past 4 years the Playstation 3 has more than justified its existence through a series of fantastic games, however in 2006 when the PS3 was released at the worst possible point in time when th...
Technical issues and derivative design choices drag down this addictive and challenging zombie flick from Housemarque
This is my review for Dead Nation (this review is specifically of Dead Nation sourced from the welcome back program) Presentation/Synopsis: Dead Nation wants to be an 80's movie. The kind of ...
Team Fortress 2
Cracking art design, glorious humour and the best team-based play online make TF2 all the multiplayer you will ever need
This is my review for Team Fortress 2 Valve is a special company. We all know that by now, the Half Life games, Counter-Strike and Left4 Dead have all shown us that when it comes to the first-perso...
Sucker Punch have honed, polished and listened to the feedback. Culminating in the best action game this year. Buy it
This is my review for inFamous 2 Presentation: Immediately, inFamous 2 asks you whether you want to continue with your "infamous story" from the first game ala Mass Effect 2. The differences if ...
The Sly Trilogy
3 whole games remastered in glorious HD. If you love platformers, you owe it to yourself to pick this one up
This is my review for the Sly Collection (will not contain spoilers, much) Presentation: Sly starts well, its the kind of cartoony action filled opening that you expect from a great heist movie....
