    Multiplayer aside, Dead Space 2 provides the atmosphere, tension and thrills that AAA action titles rarely deliver.

    Dead Space 2

    Rated on January 15, 2012 by adam1808

    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 ...

    God of War III

    Rated on October 02, 2011 by adam1808

    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...

    Portal 2

    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...

    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 ...
