    He shoots, he scores.

    FIFA 09: World Class Soccer

    He shoots, he scores.

    Like last year, I begin this review by stating I absolutely despise football games. They bore the hell out of me a lot of the time and I feel they fail to capture the drama and emotion of the pitch. However, though a lot... Read Full Review

    The new (big) daddy of first person action?

    BioShock

    The new (big) daddy of first person action?

    Bioshock is a very appealing game. It is one of the highest rated games currently on Xbox 360, has won numberous accolades and truly looks the dogs balls, and is a late port that is perhaps worth forking out yet another ... Read Full Review

    Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

    Have a laugh whilst blowing South America to pieces.

    Like many a game before it, Mercenaries 2 is big, loud and full of guns. The lead Swedish lead character is the epitome of what an action kind of man should be and quite frankly, the entire game seems to have been built ... Read Full Review
