Super Donkey Kong
As immaculate as it is flawed; DKC's strengths lie in its charm, but so too do its faults.
There is a certain air of contradiction that emanates from playing Donkey Kong Country; a somewhat contrasting fusion of perfectly placed jumps and wholly unwarranted deaths. It's graphical showmanshi...
DICE jumps head first and pulls us along for the ride as they attempt to reinvent the first person perspective.
The necessity of combat pervades itself throughout general game design. It is seen as a requirement to face an obstacle head on rather than approach it in a different manner to the extent that even th...
Blue Tongue challenges a medium that looks down on colour, by producing a game that looks down on colour.
If Okami is gaming's answer to a Japanese watercolour then de Blob is its answer to a Crayola canvas. It's primary bolds and "outside the lines" attitude to vandalism enlivens its revolutionary messag...
Metroid Prime: Hunters
At times impressive but mostly just about adequate. Hunters skill lies in its multiplayer but ultimately little else.
Metroid has never been a series known for its poster boy properties. In both style and design this is a series that traditionally hides away from such areas of publicity, instead going for the more in...
Super Mario Land
Heads will roll and the Koopas do explode in Mario's most limited, but also most endearing adventure.
Super Mario land has the rather lovely position of being a fairly unique Super Mario experience. It doesn't change the formula as in Super Mario Bros. 2 nor make a new game as a result as in Yoshi's I...
New Super Mario Bros.
There are touches of brilliance here. But New Super Mario Bros feels less like a sequel and more like a reintroduction.
If New Super Mario Bros. reminds gamers of one thing it is that the A button should always be reserved for jumping. It is as natural a fit as the D-Pad is to movement and if anything else New Super Ma...
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Smash Bros. overcomes the hype to deliver a fighting game like no other; where fun is balanced by variety and revenge is
Right from the off you can see that Super Smash Bros. Brawl is one of the Wii's most worked on games. The amount of effort that has gone into the games music, presentation, bonus content and general g...
Half-Life 2: Episode Two
Old colleagues return and old friends say their goodbyes as Valve starts to unravel their prestigious franchise in style
With Half Life 2: Episode 1 already proving that a bite sized Half life game could easily work within the grand scheme of the games story the expectation for Episode 2 was to further refine and better...
If there was ever any game deserving of a perfect score then Portal is most definitely it.
Portal is the least known game in The Orange Box and as such has none of the expectations and predispositions ladled across it that the other two new features (Team Fortress 2 and Half Life 2: Episode...
The last Spartan gives us his last hurrah as Bungie sends of its signature franchise with trademark prowess, unwavering
Some games arrive with a dull thud, others with a muted hello and some simply arrive without you even noticing. Halo 3 arrives with a deafening roar that surges into you like a frigate, only to be dra...
10 years ago it was the greatest shooter the world had ever seen. Today it remains the pinnacle of first person adventur
Some games age well, others have now been eclipsed. Previous trend setters have been bettered and left obsolete in the face of the new generation of gaming. Sometimes however there are games that do i...
Zelda no Densetsu: Fushigi no Ki no Mi - Jikuu no Shou
The Ages part of the Seasons/Ages games is as equal to its counterpart in every way.
I've started to play this game again after completing seasons just so I could fight the secret linked game boss and playing it after the years I had completed it the first time does not diminish the g...
