    A refreshing new take on the survival horror genre that just falls short due to some odd design choices.

    ZombiU

    A refreshing new take on the survival horror genre that just falls short due to some odd design choices.

    Let's get one thing out of the way first; I thoroughly enjoyed this game and Gamespot's review is a joke, without a doubt. Now, onto the meat of it, so to speak. This game is most definitely NOT a FPS, although later... Read Full Review

    A thoroughly enjoyable game

    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

    A thoroughly enjoyable game

    I very much enjoyed this game. The puzzles were inventive and entertaining. The new, animated art style was charming and worked very well in 3D. I also enjoyed the story and the characters. Plus having daily puzzles deli... Read Full Review

    A great attempt at a UGC game but has flaws with both gameplay and limited creation tools.

    ModNation Racers

    A great attempt at a UGC game but has flaws with both gameplay and limited creation tools.

    Before you first start playing this game it can be easy to assume that this will be the PS equivalent of Mario Kart, and yes, it does borrow a number of features from the Nintendo series. Namely the fact that it is a kar... Read Full Review

    A game that rivals and surpasses Wii Fit by a long shot, if not quite as charming.

    My Fitness Coach

    A game that rivals and surpasses Wii Fit by a long shot, if not quite as charming.

    The first thing you notice about My Fitness Coach is how it differs from Wii Fit. The graphics are clearly aimed at those who prefer a more realistic exercise experience. The software itself seems to have had a lot of in... Read Full Review

    An overhyped game with massive flaws that you will notice over a period of extended use!

    Wii Fit

    An overhyped game with massive flaws that you will notice over a period of extended use!

    The first thing that most buyers will do is to be taken in by the hype of Wii Fit and thus do not stop to use their logic. I wont describe the software as we all now know what it is but I will give an accurate account of... Read Full Review

    Puts the first game to shame. This is how an Uncharted game should be done.

    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

    Puts the first game to shame. This is how an Uncharted game should be done.

    After my highly critical opinion of the first game, I was skeptical as to what to expect from its sequel. However, since playing the game for a number of hours, all such concerns have since faded. The characters, stor... Read Full Review

    "In space, no one can hear you scream... from joy!"

    Dead Space

    "In space, no one can hear you scream... from joy!"

    I have to say that I didn't know what to expect when I spotted this bargain for 15 quid in Sainsburys. I didn't read any reviews or watch any videos so the whole thing was a big suprise for me. And what a pleasant, albei... Read Full Review

    Stunning, exciting, even funny, but let down by an empty and unfulfilling story and conclusion.

    Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

    Stunning, exciting, even funny, but let down by an empty and unfulfilling story and conclusion.

    The first thing you will notice about this game is how amazing it looks and sounds. The world around you is believeable and this is reinforced by a small but very likeable cast who are voiced exceptionally and offer some... Read Full Review

    Not a good start to the series in my opinion.

    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

    Not a good start to the series in my opinion.

    I had never played the Uncharted series so thought I would give them a go, and I must say that, after having now completed it, that it hasn't made an entirely positive impression. Now don't get me wrong, I can certain... Read Full Review

    Traditional Castlevania this isn't, but a fine direction to take the series.

    Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

    Traditional Castlevania this isn't, but a fine direction to take the series.

    I have to say that this game surprised me as to how addictive it could become. Behind the enchanting visuals and haunting music lies a game which remains a game. Collectables a plenty are scattered around in each level, ... Read Full Review

    Stereotypical JRPG but some nice touches

    Riviera: Yakusoku no Chi

    Stereotypical JRPG but some nice touches

    Thought I would give this a try considering it was very cheap on PSN. Not a bad little game if yo want something very chilled out. Basically, you don't have a great deal of control over the game so it playes itself. ... Read Full Review

    The lack of polish and completeness let down this otherwise solid racer.

    Gran Turismo 5

    The lack of polish and completeness let down this otherwise solid racer.

    I have never been particularly interested in racing games but I thought I would give GT5 a go considering its reputation. I have to say that the overall experience is a good one, with the level of detail and attentio... Read Full Review

    An extremely addictive game but could have been so much more.

    Fallout 3

    An extremely addictive game but could have been so much more.

    Fallout 3 is one of those games that you really have to sacrifice a good part of your personal life to play. It starts off slowly but once you get immersed in the world it is hard to think about anything else other than ... Read Full Review

    A bit of a deflated balloon of a game

    300: March to Glory

    A bit of a deflated balloon of a game

    This game really doesnt have anything to offer unless you like lots of blood and repetition. You spend the game moving from one boring section of the game to the other, hacking through a measly amount of on screen ene... Read Full Review

    A gorgeous game that deserves more attention than it has received

    I'm not going to go into detail about the game as we have the Gamespot review for that. What I will give though, is my opinion. It is a gorgeous looking platform game with amazing traditional japanese visuals, presentati... Read Full Review

    Can seem a little basic at first but you fall in love with the memorable characters and excellent stories

    Gyakuten Saiban: Yomigaeru Gyakuten (Limited Edition)

    Can seem a little basic at first but you fall in love with the memorable characters and excellent stories

    I'm not going to descibe the game as there are reviews for it all over the place. I'll just give my opinion. Now I love Japanese made games and I do love anime. This game is perfect for you if you like the same. The a... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy VII

    Still the best game ever made IMO

    The headline says it all really. Everything about this game was just right. It was a groundbreaking RPG and really set the standard for all developers. There are a couple of things that keep it off a perfect 10. It's ... Read Full Review

    I remember getting this game Xmas 1994. My happy little teenage face was beaming the whole way through. Now that it is on the the VC I could experience that joy once again. This game was developed by Rare, back when t... Read Full Review

    Gekikame Ninja Den

    Nostalgic but with a ton of flaws I never realised in the past

    This game is relatively straightforward 2D Platformer. You need to rescue April and Splinter from Shredder. Legions of respawing enemies that have nothing to do with TMNT, stand in your way. This game is crazy difficu... Read Full Review

    This game takes place on the planet LV-426 which many fans will know as the planet on which the film Aliens takes place. The 30 missions are broken down into 3 sections each themed by a different Alien movie. Each sectio... Read Full Review
