Full of potential but flawed and broken to the point of being frustrating
Everything about Alien Spidy is good, in concept. When it comes to the implementation of those ideas everything falls apart and you are left with a game that's both frustrating and disappointing. O...
Retro City Rampage

Sonic Adventure 2
sonic adventure 2, a mess with spots of hidden quality.
Sonic Adventure was regarded as a good, if flawed, game when it came out on the Dreamcast; it was never going to be heralded as perfect but it managed to remain an air of respectability. Sonic Adventu...
The Unfinished Swan
An indie, art house tech demo, wrapped in a touching and lovely children s story.
The Unfinished Swan is a touching and charming story that, defying most video game conventions, manages to be told in a simply fashion, but also extremely well. As a game, this almost entirely narrati...
NiGHTS into Dreams...
An original classic get just a little more attention, and while its not for everyone, it definitely deserves a love.
On its original release, NiGHTS into Dreams was a startlingly original and challenging title, both by means of design and visual style. However, its gameplay was quite divisive back in the day and, de...
Jet Set Radio
A classic that doesn't age well... has an amazing soundtrack though.
The original Dreamcast release of Jet Set Radio is held in fond regard, even today. While the game wasn't totally perfect, it was a very inventive and arguably a very important one. Twelve years on, w...

Mini Ninjas Adventures
my word this is just broken.
The original Mini Ninjas was a delightful little family friendly 3D platformer, that had lots of nice ideas and fun moments. But we need to be blunt here. The Kinect only follow up is a shamefully bro...
Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013
Magic represented poorly in video/computer game form.
It can be difficult coming to something like Magic the Gathering, which already has the history and community built up around it. You might see a pack of the cards and think you'd like to give it a tr...
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
Minecraft, a game thats not exactly easy to review outright but that comes close to meeting up to the fun had on pc
The biggest problem about writing a review for Minecraft is that it's impossible to write a review for Minecraft because you're too busy playing it to find the time. For newcomers, Minecraft can lo...
Stunning, delightful and deeper than you can imagine.
It's important to point out that Fez is a title that comes with a little more coverage and anticipation then most Arcade titles, having been awarded many plaudits and high praise even before its relea...

This is utter tosh. <br /> <br /> <br /> - fin -

Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition
The arcade classic hits xbox live and is a near faithful recreation of the original but with one or two issues online.
It's 1991 and the Arcades see the release of Street Fighter II, the most defining title of its genre. It's a game that arrived at just the right time to capture peoples spirits and stay with them in j...
I Am Alive
I am alive is lucky to be alive.
Originally announced in 2008, it was to be a survival game that would pit its lead – known at that time only as Adam – against something more frightening then monsters or ghosts; other people. Inte...
Absolute War? It's more Absolute Trash
Lets make two things clear here. 1: It's likely quite hard making a good quality strategy game. 2: Absolute War is not a good quality strategy game and it has nothing going for it. This g...

Coming from grasshopper Manufacture Diabolical Pitch comes with the expected tropes of a Grasshopper game.
Like most all Grasshopper games before it Diabolical Pitch is dripping with a distinct style and attitude. It's a game with a stripped down design and premise. As the games title implies its a gam...
A long, exceptional and endlessly fun experiance. Has some of the best moments in any game ever created .

Shadow of the Colossus
Very few games create a deep and believable world that the player can really get lost in, shadow of the colossus does.
It's hard to find a game that really creates a world that's both tangible but also breath-taking in their breadth and also in the visual splendor of it. Shadow of the colossus in one game that can say...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
this game is the rest of your life. when you fall you fall far and deep.
At this point nothing I say to you will make much of a difference. Most of you anyway, to that one guy still over there on the fence about skyrim, read this and if your still not sure buy it anyway...
Batman: Arkham City
A deep and tightly formed game full of extras and fan service for players to discover as they stalk the gotham streets.
Arkham asylum, it could be argued that it was the break out hit of 2009. A risk to begin with it totally blew away most people expecting very little from the comic book based game. Rocksteady c...
Fallout: New Vegas - Honest Hearts
With such a deep set and well developed back story for the events surrounding this DLC you can help but be dissapointed.
It's not going to be surprise to many who know me that find that Ive been awaiting this DLC. I'm a massive fan of Fallout and New Vegas and have an over 200 hour record playing on it to show for it...
Perfectly good and engaging story but leaves nothing after its done.
After six years Alan wake finally arrives on xbox 360. The long wait has done nothing to dull peoples interest in the games proposition. The question is has time been to the games benefit? A lot ...
