    Probably wouldn't play this if I wasn't such a strong TMNT fan

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

    Probably wouldn't play this if I wasn't such a strong TMNT fan

    This game is clearly a game for fans and it's all the nostalgia that this game brings that gives it the high scores that it has received. Clearly a lot of love and research has gone into the game but it is let down by so... Read Full Review

    Back to the roots yay!

    Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition

    Back to the roots yay!

    I've been waiting for this game to be released in Australia. It was finally done in May 2013. I'll start with the downsides first: 1) Due to its late release in Australia, there are hardly any players online. Most of... Read Full Review

    The wait was worth it. SC2 is a winner

    Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

    The wait was worth it. SC2 is a winner

    I was a multiplayer LAN player on the original starcraft. In fact, I bought the original star craft a few months ago just to play the campaign as I never finished it. SC2 is very much the same thing with improvements... Read Full Review

    This is one of the few games out there that will make your jaw drop

    Batman: Arkham City

    This is one of the few games out there that will make your jaw drop

    I bought the GOTY edition that had all the add-on components. Arkham Asylum was an excellent game though a bit too dark for me with all those psycho villains. Arkham City isn't as dark which was very good. It continue... Read Full Review

    Could've been a stunner but it is severely broken

    SimCity

    Could've been a stunner but it is severely broken

    One month since it's release and the game is still severely broken. There have been a few patches to fix odd little things but there are SO many broken elements. The game is beautifully visually with great music and s... Read Full Review

    Nice to play but probably not as good as the previous two

    Mass Effect 3

    Nice to play but probably not as good as the previous two

    I've been waiting for the extended cut ending to write my review of the game. The EC download was 1.85GB to download so I expected some significant gameplay differences but didn't notice anything drastic apart from the r... Read Full Review

    I think you have to be in the right mood to play a stealth game like this

    Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction (Collector's Edition)

    I think you have to be in the right mood to play a stealth game like this

    The last time I played a game with this much stealth action was Metal Gear. Splinter Cell conviction is somewhat catchy if you're in the right mood for it. After being used to games where patience is not the key criteria... Read Full Review

    Halo: Reach

    I'm not a first person shooter gamer but Halo Reach is fantastic!

    I never grew up with Halo as my gaming platform was the PC. My equivalent to Halo was Quake! I don't know the story as such but playing Halo Reach gave me good insight on what the rest of the series was about. The ca... Read Full Review

    If you played this game on the actual arcades with your friends, you will love playing it on the xbox. I remember tossing in token after token to finish the game with my friends and it was a challenge with 5 of us as Mag... Read Full Review

    Mass Effect 2

    Excellent RPG but ME1 seemed better

    ME2 is a great sequel, maintaining the standards set by ME1. In a gameplay perspective, there does seem to be more depth in this one. However for a RPG, much of that lies in the story, the voice acting, music, etc. ME2 d... Read Full Review

    Not that impressive when compared to SF4

    Super Street Fighter IV

    Not that impressive when compared to SF4

    I played SF4 as soon as it came out and it was excellent. I recently got Super SF4, almost 2 years later. Its a good game with some additions, noteably the new characters, the video replays, the costumes and minor things... Read Full Review

    Meh!

    Dragon Age II

    Meh!

    Not sure about this game even though it's from Bioware. There are the signature Bioware elements of the game from the character customisation right down to the way the story starts. It reminded me a bit of Mass Effect, a... Read Full Review

    A lot of fun with multiple players

    South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play!

    A lot of fun with multiple players

    No doubt this game is for any south park fan, but even those who aren't may actually enjoy it (unless they get offended by language). The game is simplistic but the adjustable difficultly makes it replayable. The hard... Read Full Review

    Band Hero

    Good choice of songs but not enough available

    After playing a few guitar hero games, I wasn't expecting much to be different with Band Hero apart from the selection of popular songs - and I was right. The songs are quite good, half of them were very popular songs... Read Full Review

    Street Fighter IV

    Very good iPhone version compared to Xbox

    I used to play SFIV on my xbox and I loved it, particularly the multiplayer section of it. Capcom was selling the iPhone app fro SFIV at a discounted rate in which the proceeds go to charity (I believe its for the Jap... Read Full Review

    Pretty good game for iPhone users

    I grew up on the smurfs, not that I liked them that much but it was a childhood classic. This game brings back some memories but what's cool is that adults will enjoy this game more than kids. I'll tell you why: 1) I... Read Full Review

    Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime

    Don't waste your time or money on time

    Well, after playing Ghost Busters (2009) - the Sanctum of Slime game that was released recently was an absolute disappointment. Maybe on a positive note, it's nice to see that the franchise has expanded and it has got ne... Read Full Review

    Ghostbusters: The Video Game

    Fun game that makes you want another movie out soon

    I generally don't go for games that score under 8/10 but I was keen to play this one and it brought back some memories. Looking back, the movie had some pretty good effects for it's time. Visually the game is actually... Read Full Review

    Lucky me, I got this game for free. I've heard some good reviews about it so it was on my list of games to try. Did the game live up to the hype? Absolutely! I'm about 2/3 complete during my first run of the game and ... Read Full Review
