Although FIFA 2009 is literally a day away from release thus making this review incredibly belated, I still figure it's worth a shot. You see, I'm one of those players constantly playing catch up to the current crop of ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Super Mario Kart
Mario Kart Wii
Ninja Gaiden Black is perhaps the definitive action-adventure game. Mixing classic swashbuckling combat with a near-flawless game engine and reasonably engrossing story, everyone who appreciates a rewarding challange wi... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
It's not evolution when you remove core gameplay features that have been the backbone since the series inception, is it?
After three years of build-up we finally have the next installment in one of the longest running franchises in the business. It is a shame then, that considering the power and efficiency of the seventh generation gaming... Read Full Review19 of 44 users found the following review helpful
Grand Theft Auto IV
Gameplay: 8 Although the single-player game is short, it has pretty decent replay value thanks to the AI used. There are several different ways both allies and foes react when in battle which means there are several ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Fight Night Round 3
Fight Night Round 2
A great stylistic mix of arcade and realism combine to make Fight Night Round 2 a stunning boxing game.
I will first of all point out that I haven't played the original game though I have spent a little time playing the third iteration on the XBOX360. Gameplay: 9 The strongest feature of the game is undoubtedly the g... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
I've been playing the Grand Theft Auto franchise since the demo of the original game came out late in 1997. Ten years and at least ten games later, I still believe Vice City gets the mixture just right. Although the gr... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Graphically superior to many shooters but lacking what makes a classic one: depth, plot and replay value.
I know Gears of War is a game which generally garners great reviews from every gamer, hailing it as a masterpiece of seventh generation technology and gameplay, but even so I am appalled to see how many glowing (often ba... Read Full Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful
The Sims 2
7 SIns is not the sort of game most gamers will line up to play. In fact, a lot of people may write it off as another bad clone with 'racy' content, to appeal to no-one other than filthy perverts who spend too much time... Read Full Review15 of 15 users found the following review helpful
I have a formula when it comes to playing GTA-like games. If the sandbox is too big or too small, things get stilfing. In GTA3:II (aka Vice City) I felt everything was just right, like Goldilocks third bowl of porridge... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence
It's hard to review a franchise as legendary as Metal Gear without coming off as some kind of review-happy quote whore. As the series is one of the longest-running (over twenty years) and most consistent - right up ther... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
A few major technical problems with the game engine and some plot holes prevent this from being a masterpiece.
As a diehard gamer since I bought my first Master System as a kid, I've seen gaming grow an an incredible rate. I've also seen the market saturated with first and third person shooters of variable quality, leading to a ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
God of War
I've always had a soft spot for action-adventure games. There is something more satisfying about decapitating an enemy with a midair swing of a blade or a searing burst of colourful magic than merely pumping rounds into... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
I was a huge fan of the original God of War. I thought it was a great game, getting story, pacing, environments, character development and gameplay completely spot-on. I liked it so much I completed it on maximum diffi... Read Full Review1 of 18 users found the following review helpful
