    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 is a game that has shows strength and weakness entirely through player recognition.

    Remember when you were young and you had a toy box full of action figures, soft toys, accessories, paper cut out men and random stones? Everything would be stuffed into that old box and you'd make up ...

    There are two elements to PID that make it really stand out from the crowed. On one side of the coin we have a game that's dripping with distinct and fine tuned visual and audio style. Every last elem...

    Wake up, clean teeth, kill vast numbers of gangsters.

    It's dark and dank in the morning as you wake up in a sparse and ominous room. The air is close and the walls sweat in the heat. You walk through the door in front of you and are confronted with three...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
