    Awesome-ness incarnate online...and a damn fun game offline.

    Ace Combat 6: Kaihou e no Senka

    Awesome-ness incarnate online...and a damn fun game offline.

    I avoided this one initially as I had images of a prettied up version of the old PS2 games....pretty, fun for a while but shallow and eventually unsatisfying. Oh boy was I wrong. A pilot mate of mine tipped me off.... Read Full Review

    Dull, lifeless and not what the PGR experience was supposed to be about

    Project Gotham Racing 4

    Dull, lifeless and not what the PGR experience was supposed to be about

    Let's start with the bikes. They just don't work. Ugly handling so at odds with the smooth and pleasureable-ness usually associated PGR. They seemed like a late addition that wasn't fully play tested. Gone are the joy... Read Full Review

    Project Gotham Racing

    A re-visit has re-ignited the flame!

    I have bought and played every PGR and had this one on release all those years ago. I loved it. It was pure joy. But....by PGR4 I felt something was missing. The joy of the powerslide, the views of the city, the local... Read Full Review

    I was wrong. So wrong.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

    I was wrong. So wrong.

    I'm so sorry. I was wrong. My old review sits below as a tombstone to my idiocy. The DLC of recent weeks has elevatedd this game to a true classic. Is there anything this game DOESN't have!?! I've ammended my... Read Full Review

    Shoddy, lacklustre, very dumb and guttingly disapointing!!! GAMESPOT GOT IT RIGHT ON THE MARK

    I hate to heap bad vibes on something so many people spent many long hours crafting.....but this time it really is called for. The concept and design were superb. You could almost have THE perfect videogame fodder her... Read Full Review

    Assassin's Creed

    I saw the bad reviews and stayed away...BIG MISTAKE

    Wow, I'm still there!! My head is still lost in the awe of standing on spires and temple tops looking out over the ancient cities of Damascus and Jerusalem. Stunning. The buzz of the roof top runs, the sheer brutality... Read Full Review

    Something fishy here...GAMESPOT taking backhanders perhaps?

    Something really isn't right with the review of this game. I'm stunned at teh low score. Very few games really make my jaw drop but Skate has done so repeatedly. It really is pure joy. The guy at the store said I was ... Read Full Review

    I'm sorry 2K...you've just lost a LONGTERM fan!!! EA have almost made he perfect hockey game. Almost.

    Last year I got all excited about the skillstick...but the game around it was chunky, unfinished and clunky as hell. It felt broken and cheap. NHL 2K7 was on the otehr hand a belter. It had old-school controls but it pla... Read Full Review

    Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

    A graphics whore eats his hat!! Simply amazing

    I am gobsmacked. A game that I thought was a rehash of a tired and dead old franchise and game genre turns out to be THE greatest DS game I've had yet!! The graphics are actually superb, the sprites have so much charact... Read Full Review

    Battlestar Galactica

    SHOCK HORROR...a good licence?!

    Picked this up at bargain bin prices...and was floored by the production values. The dev team have done their best to add some complexity to what would be a dull flying shooter. And yes it is tough, but once you listen t... Read Full Review

    Manhunt

    I hope this doesn't reflect a character flaw, but after so much time, I'm still in love with this game!!

    I've spent many an hour doing the sneaky sneaky neck break thing in many a game, but none have come close to evoking the feeling that the best movies of that ilk manage. None but Manhunt. Cutting to the chase, I love ... Read Full Review

    The Punisher

    Shotguns in the face of average licenced games

    I don't buy licenced games. They are intrinsically tacky and have next to no creativity and imagination applied to them. But.... Occasionally a diamond gleams in the **** And this, is one such diamond, rough around... Read Full Review

    The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

    Smashing!! wotwot

    I'm a creative person. I direct videos. I edit. I draw and sculpt. But I LOVE breaking things. This game has to be one of the ultimate stress relievers (it's one below a handjob on the De-Stress-O-Meter of all time). ... Read Full Review

    I was looking forward to this one after Rez et al, and was not disapointed. At first the basicness and limited option worried me and I didnt quitre understand the point of not having a save option. But after weeks and... Read Full Review

    SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo

    D'you smell that son? Thats the smell of victory....and missed bus stops!

    Well, boredom in Burnout set in within a few weeks, Lumines is a "dip in for a change" type play and after almost 3 months I was actually beginning to bore of even GTA's superb streets. I needed something cathartic, some... Read Full Review

    Missed bus stops, got off at wrong stations, been thrown out of coffee shops....bcos of this game!

    I dunno, I mean, this was supposed to be a mess of a game, a partially realised dream, an "almost but not quite". From the more educated (see non fanboy) previews it appeared that the city would seem unpopulated, quiet a... Read Full Review
