A grand galactic adventure that provides action, intrigue and a superbly immersive storyline that is yours to shape.
Many games claim to offer real player choice that affects the way the game progresses but in reality they don't quite live up to that claim. Mass Effect does achieve that goal though. The choices you ...
Absolution marks a long awaited return for Agent 47 but on this evidence you'll wish he never came back.
Seven years after the last Hitman game in 2006, Hitman Blood Money, Agent 47 finally returns in Hitman Absolution. Unfortunately, it was not worth the wait. Absolution falls down on several levels and...
Bioshock infinite provides both a great first person shooter and a thought provoking and powerful narrative.
Bioshock Infinite is the third game in the Bioshock franchise but chronologically it comes first, set in 1912 compared to the 1950s/60s setting of the first two games. It also swaps the underwater cit...
Red Dead Redemption
Fun but shallow gameplay surrounded by a superb setting and cast of characters.
Red Dead Redemption is best described as Rockstar taking the formula of their Grand Theft Auto games and transplanting it into a Wild West setting. That may seem like an easy way of describing it but ...
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

Tomb Raider (The Final Hours Edition)
A shining example in how to do a successful reboot.
It is easy to say that hitting the reboot button is the easy option with a franchise as it enables the developers to start from scratch once more. However in reality it is a difficult task to pull off...
LEGO City Undercover
A funny and enjoyable, if simplistic game open to all. Not a classic but a fine addition to the Wii U's library.
Lego City Undercover marks the first entirely original game in Travellers Tales series of Lego games that began with Lego Star Wars back in 2005 and for the most part its better for this. Much of the ...

Trauma Center: Second Opinion
Second opinion isn't in need of any surgery<br />

G1 Jockey Wii
Fun all the way to the finishing post<br />
G1 Jockey is hardly a game that will be getting gamers excited, sure horse racing fans might rush out to buy it on release but it's not even going to be their most wanted. It wasn't a big seller eithe...
Patronising and cutesy, yet still a joy to play.<br />
Eledees is Konami's first wii game and unlike many developers they haven't simply made some cheap knock-off and tacked on motion sensing controls. Infact the motion sensing controls are key to the gam...
Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

Super Mario Galaxy
Super Mario Galaxy manages to breath life back into the tired platforming genre <br /> Real score= 98%
Super Mario 64 was amazing and with Super Mario sunshine everyone expected the same again. Sadly it wasn't to be and whilst Sunshine wasn't a bad game it couldn't live up to Super Mario 64. With the a...
Croc: Legend of the Gobbos
Croc is an often overlooked playstation platformer but so many people are missing out

Hajimete no Wii (w/Remote)
Wii play is fun for a while but offers little lasting value<br /> Real score= 61%

After the brilliance that was Halo upon it's release, Halo 2 really should have been better <br /> Real Score=78%

Halo (Xbox Collection)
It's not as good as the original reviews suggest but it's one of the better xbox games nevertheless<br /> Real score=91
Halo was an original xbox launch title and the reviewers simply lapped it up. Gamespot themselves gave it 9.7. It may be good but when you see what you can get today and what has been on the xbox sinc...
Smash through traffic in this high speed action packed racer<br /> Real score=88%
Burnout revenge is a game that doesn't really offer anything new but simply chooses to refine an already proven formulae. It feels more like a seasonal update then an all new game but if like me you'd...
Not as good as I remember<br /> Real score=57%

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Gran Turismo 3 A-spec (Platinum)
A complete letdown
Gran turismo 3 is supposed to be one of the best racers on playstation 2. All I found was a boring racing sim that doesn't offer as much as many say and cars that handle like bricks. It's not a scratc...

LEGO Rock Raiders
Good in theory, bad in practice<br /> Real score=48%

Pocket Monsters LeafGreen
A quality remake of the original pokemon games<br /> Real Score=89%

A fun yet flawed high speed racer<br /> Real score=72%

Brilliant graphics and a gimmick that ain't just a gimmick make this stand out.<br /> Real score=94%
