    When the main missions are as dull as the side missions, and those are tedious - you know the game won't be great.

    Far Cry 2

    When the main missions are as dull as the side missions, and those are tedious - you know the game won't be great.

    Normally my first impressions pick up the worst bits of a game and I grow to love it but in this game's case, those seem to be the best bits! The premise is very good – an area of Africa that is split between warring fac... Read Full Review

    Although it doesn't say a lot, it's the best Star Wars related game in a long time.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    Although it doesn't say a lot, it's the best Star Wars related game in a long time.

    The story is a refreshing take on Star Wars as you play as the Dark Side fighting the Jedi. It feels a bit wrong when you kill a Jedi but with all the cool powers the Dark Side have, that is soon forgotten. The graphics ... Read Full Review

    Although it's a great WWII game, it's still been done so many times before.

    Call of Duty: World at War

    Although it's a great WWII game, it's still been done so many times before.

    After playing Modern Warfare 2 before World at War, I realised I had definitely played them in the wrong order. Going back to WaW seems like a major step back in the series after the superior MW2. It's really hard not to... Read Full Review

    A game that had a lot to live up to but achieved that and so much more.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    A game that had a lot to live up to but achieved that and so much more.

    So you'd expect after the amount of money that Infinity Ward made on the last game, they'd go all out on this one right? Well you'd be wrong as they've gone down the route that everybody knows the game and what to expect... Read Full Review

    From the makers of GTA, you'd expect nothing less from this excellent sandbox game set in a school.

    Bully: Scholarship Edition

    From the makers of GTA, you'd expect nothing less from this excellent sandbox game set in a school.

    As with all sandbox games it's pretty overwhelming at first to get your head round but once you get used to it, there's a wealth of options to keep you entertained. The way I approached it is to take on the lessons first... Read Full Review

    A step forward for the Lego series, and a great mix between Lego humour and the action orientated Indiana Jones movies.

    LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures

    A step forward for the Lego series, and a great mix between Lego humour and the action orientated Indiana Jones movies.

    Before playing the game I assumed having not seen the films would hinder my experience and as predicted I hadn't got the foggiest idea what was going on plot-wise. I just enjoyed it as it's still pretty funny and the Leg... Read Full Review

    An excellent addition to the survival horror/shooter genre which just about matches the quality of Resi 5 and Bioshock.

    Dead Space

    An excellent addition to the survival horror/shooter genre which just about matches the quality of Resi 5 and Bioshock.

    On first impressions the game appears to be just like any other shooter set in space. It begins with a fairly generic cutscene and the characters aren't anything out of the ordinary. Once you break through the first few ... Read Full Review

    The Simpsons game does many things well and bucks the trend for licensed Simpsons games that have been released before.

    The Simpsons Game

    The Simpsons game does many things well and bucks the trend for licensed Simpsons games that have been released before.

    As soon as you load up the game you know you're in for a great all round Simpsons experience. From the theme music to the funny achievement just for pressing start. The premise for the game is that the characters are tra... Read Full Review

    Could've been better, but does a good job of being a decent party game with a large catalogue of questions.

    Trivial Pursuit

    Could've been better, but does a good job of being a decent party game with a large catalogue of questions.

    Trivial Pursuit is a pretty good representation of the real game although changing it to multiple choice answers, although obvious, does make the game easier. There is a vast array of questions which makes it seem more b... Read Full Review

    One of the better movie tie-ins that doesn't get boring, and has some genuinely funny moments.

    DreamWorks Kung Fu Panda

    One of the better movie tie-ins that doesn't get boring, and has some genuinely funny moments.

    For a movie tie in, it's a pretty decent game – I don't normally play movie games as they generally suck but this came as part of the Lego Indiana Jones bundle so I thought I'd give it a go. The graphics are fairly decen... Read Full Review

    More of the same from the first game - some good, some bad.

    Condemned 2

    More of the same from the first game - some good, some bad.

    The sequel's setting is similar to the original but it doesn't seem as well done. It's a bit more sci-fi than the previous game. There are now weird creature things as well as the original's bums and infected people. The... Read Full Review

    Condemned: Criminal Origins

    Two words describe this game - dark and brutal.

    It's a very solid game that doesn't do anything out of the ordinary and doesn't alter much throughout the course of the game. For a game that's a few years old the graphics aren't half bad although considering the gritty... Read Full Review

    A good game which is let down by a poor story.

    The Darkness

    A good game which is let down by a poor story.

    After a shaky first level of the game which leaves you with only regular weapons, I wasn't sure how good the game would actually be. Once you get hold of the Darkness' powers, the game really kicks up a notch and adds a ... Read Full Review

    Dull, repetitive, and a true hack n' slasher. It's a shame it doesn't really do anything particularly right.

    Ninety-Nine Nights

    Dull, repetitive, and a true hack n' slasher. It's a shame it doesn't really do anything particularly right.

    The main problem I had with NNN is that it is just so dull and tedious. Considering the main appeal of the game is the mindless violence and high body count, it really should've done it better than it did. For the fir... Read Full Review

    Way too short and very little variety, ruin what could've been a very good game.

    Stranglehold

    Way too short and very little variety, ruin what could've been a very good game.

    I had read it's only a half dozen hours long but I think in reality it's longer than that. I'm undecided on the game as there are good points and bad points. It's supposed to be along the same style as Max Payne although... Read Full Review

    Lost: Via Domus

    Good graphics and all the show's characters are present which makes it a must play for any die hard Lost fans.

    As a fan of the show I thought the story was good enough, it really does capture the show well with the flashbacks, 'Previously On Lost...', and the music all present and correct. It really is more of an interactive s... Read Full Review

    Conflict: Denied Ops

    Poor graphics and bad shooting make this a step backwards for the series.

    I'd heard it was a bad game but after enjoying the other games in the series, it was definitely a look at. For starters, the game is nothing like the old ones as it's no longer particularly nice to look at and they've sc... Read Full Review

    Bog standard shooter is given a different dynamic to set it apart from other standard shooters.

    Dark Sector

    Bog standard shooter is given a different dynamic to set it apart from other standard shooters.

    Despite being in the shadow of the many other action games from the same era, it is actually a pretty a solid shooter with the added extra of using the glaive to dispatch enemies. The glaive has a few different uses alth... Read Full Review

    Good graphics and a decent selection of cars can't hide the poor racing mechanic lying under the surface.

    Burnout Paradise

    Good graphics and a decent selection of cars can't hide the poor racing mechanic lying under the surface.

    Firstly, despite this is a racing game - I hate the racing with a passion! There are too many cars to avoid and it's still pot luck if I get the right road and don't end up in the middle of nowhere. The thing that saves ... Read Full Review

    Mirror's Edge

    A great look, a novel idea, and an awesome soundtrack make this game a surprise hit.

    When I originally saw the trailer for it I thought that it looked really bad and had no hope, but if you can pick it up for a cheap price it's definitely worth a look at. After playing it my view on the game has complete... Read Full Review

    Resident Evil 5

    Excellent graphics, improved story, and great weapons create an instant classic Residen Evil game.

    The hype surrounding this game was pretty incredible but I think it has lived up to everything that was asked of it. It sticks to the Resi story pretty well as it brought back some of the series' favourites, but also int... Read Full Review

    Gears of War

    Great graphics can't hide what is quite a shallow main game. Multiplayer beefs up the lifespan though.

    After not thinking it was very good from my first play through, by the ene I'd kinda changed my mind about it. It still doesn't deserve half of the hype given to it as it's not a lot better than Dark Sector which I thou... Read Full Review

    Weak graphics and some dull missions spoil an otherwise good game.

    I wasn't expecting great things for it so I wasn't disappointed when I started it up. Sometimes I think the graphics look good when seen from a distance but up close and personal they aren't. The game on the whole feels ... Read Full Review

    Kameo: Elements of Power

    Bright graphics and a half decent story, provide a nice change of scenery from all the WWII games on the market.

    Seeing as it was quite an early 360 game the graphics are surprisingly good and it's been a long time since I've played a bright and cheerful game. I'm only really did the main story and forget about the side missions an... Read Full Review

    With no pre-conceptions of the game, I was pleasantly surprised with the end result.

    Although Devil May Cry 4 had a frustrating few sections in the middle, it ended up being a truly awesome game. I guess you could say the action was a bit repetitive. Even though you could potentially craft some awesome c... Read Full Review
