    The fast, exhilarating combat and amazing production values, make these the best giant robot games you'll ever play.

    Zone of the Enders 1 and 2 are hands down the best giant robot games you'll ever play. Unfortunately despite the positive reception from critics and gamers, the public as a whole ignored them. A lot of people did buy the... Read Full Review

    Flower unionises beauty and simplicity to create the best downloadable Playstation 3 game you'll ever experience

    When I first heard about Flower, I instantly mocked it. The premise of controlling a flower petal made me laugh. But given the low price point I decided to take the plunge and it turned out to be one of the best download... Read Full Review

    Who's That Flying?!

    A fun, well designed shooter that shows the gaming world what a Playstation Mini should be.

    As a diehard Playstation fan, even I will tell you that the Mini service on the Playstation Store is abysmal. Just about every game available is utter garbage. However there are a few exceptions, one of which is the amaz... Read Full Review

    Xenoblade

    One of the best things that ever happened to the RPG genre. Developers could learn a thing or two from this masterpiece.

    Being a gamer in Australia and Europe can be tough. Constantly games are delayed or denied a release, whilst America always seems to get the better of the stick. But once in a blue moon the reverse becomes true and this ... Read Full Review

    Evangelion Shin Gekijoban: 3nd Impact

    If you ever wanted to mash buttons to the music of the Rebuild of Evangelion films, then here is your chance.

    When it comes to merchandising Evangelion is more or less the Star Wars of Japan. T-Shirts, toys, theme parks, cars, bikes and even canned bread has had the Evangelion brand slapped onto it. Then comes the video games, e... Read Full Review

    A legitimately mature gaming experience with a thought provoking narrative backed by smart gameplay.

    When it comes to original and downright weird games, nobody does it better than the Japanese developer Atlus. Their ability to produce unique gaming experiences has won them many fans including yours truly. Naturally whe... Read Full Review

    Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax

    Content omissions aside, this is a solid representation of one this generation's best RPGs.

    One of my favourite commute games for last year was an interesting RPG called Half-Minute Hero on the PSP. Its greatness came from the unique premise of condensing a massive RPG adventure into bite size form. Microsoft t... Read Full Review

    A confident action JRPG held back by a lack of innovation and an unmoving storyline.

    Sony's PSP has always been an interesting creature. In Japan it's the most played video game system and every week several new games are released for it. However due to piracy and culture differences, the PSP's popularit... Read Full Review

    Yes it's grossly overvalued, but given how much shovel ware makes up the 3DS library it's unmistakably play worthy.

    Back in the day Pilotwings received much praise for its fun yet accessible flying simulation. However to much fan despair the series fell off the radar with Nintendo continuously teasing future instalments that ultimatel... Read Full Review

    The uninteresting storyline, game design issues and the lack of difficulty buries the game's potential.

    When a comic series becomes successful enough, it's mandatory that the franchise quickly embraces other mediums. Blade Kitten a supposably popular web comic now receives its own video game. This downloadable only game is... Read Full Review

    Without any regrets Monsters Probably Stole My Princess can be branded as one of the best Playstation minis available.

    Since its introduction on the Playstation Store, the Mini service has played host to a collection of dismal games that aren't even worth a second glance. However there is a handful of gems buried amongst the garbage and ... Read Full Review

    It's a been a long time since we've had a new Duke Nukem game and Critical Mass is a bad start for the icon's revival.

    It's appears that the Duke Nukem property brings upon a curse that renders developers unable to complete games in a short timeframe. Since over the years we've seen many Duke Nukem games enter a limbo like state and Crit... Read Full Review

    Proves we shouldn't bury the DS just yet.<br /> <br />

    It's proof that the PSP isn't dead and is a contender for my personal game of the year.

    Upon my completion of the Tactics Ogre remake I became angry. Not because it was a terrible, but because that publishers in the past had denied Australian gamers access to it. But thankfully Square Enix has thrown us a b... Read Full Review

    Heroes' Paradise preserves the craziness that made its Wii counterpart popular. But the gameplay is still hit or miss.

    When a list of the best Wii games is compiled you'll often come across No More Heroes. Personally I find myself disagreeing with this truth since the quality of the game play was questionable. Nonetheless with an open mi... Read Full Review

    With its simple fighting system, limited variations of game play and absence of replay value its hard to recommend it.
