    Emotionally engaging and thoroughly entertaining!

    The Last of Us

    Rated on June 23, 2013 by smylexx

    Emotionally engaging and thoroughly entertaining!

    More and more often, as I leave the cinema, I often find myself asking the same question -why wasn't the script better? When something costs a gazillion (yes, that might be a real word), surely the po...

    Beautiful, fluid and innovative. One of the greatest 8 bit games ever made.

    The Last Ninja

    Rated on January 21, 2010 by smylexx

    Beautiful, fluid and innovative. One of the greatest 8 bit games ever made.

    I remember seeing the screenshots in computer magazines months before the release of the game and thought (as did most people) that surely there must be some mistake! The game looked great... too ...

    Simple and nice to look at -you know, like Paris Hilton.

    Mini Ninjas

    Rated on September 17, 2009 by smylexx

    Simple and nice to look at -you know, like Paris Hilton.

    In still images featured in magazines such as EDGE, this game looked incredibly pretty and distinctive. Unfortunately, upon playing the game, the sheen and glitter soon fade and you eventually find t...

    Paradroid

    One of the greatest games ever made!

    Yes Andrew Braybrook may be a slightly dodgy eyeballed nerd who posed in front of his TR7 back in the 80s in various computer magazines but he is also the creator of some of the most sublime gaming ex...

    Gauntlet never dies, it just comes back in a shinier box.

    Arkadian Warriors

    Rated on January 20, 2008 by smylexx

    Gauntlet never dies, it just comes back in a shinier box.

    Arkadian Warriors screams 'budget game' - from the rather average presentation to the lack of diversity in weapons, monsters and quests. It is, however, rather good fun albeit in a disengage-brain sor...

    The Indiana Jones game we've been waiting for!

    Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

    Rated on December 08, 2007 by smylexx

    The Indiana Jones game we've been waiting for!

    When i played the demo of Uncharted, I was slightly underwhelmed. Although it looked quite nice and the animation was obviously fantastic, the level design felt a little constraining and the edges of ...

    The main reason for buying this game is still justified - it plays like a dream!

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

    Rated on November 04, 2007 by smylexx

    The main reason for buying this game is still justified - it plays like a dream!

    The full GS review is pretty spot-on so i won't cover off everything that's been said already. While the presentation of the main select screen is pretty dull and the music will almost certainly have ...

    A trip back to the nineties without the need to own a glowstick or a copy of Bryan Adams' greatest hits!

    Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe

    Rated on October 20, 2007 by smylexx

    A trip back to the nineties without the need to own a glowstick or a copy of Bryan Adams' greatest hits!

    Let's get one thing clear - I LOVED Speedball 2 when it originally came out on the Amiga. Yes, that does make me an old fart and no, you can't have my last Werther's Original. I'm still amazed by the ...

    Fast paced arcade style fun with plenty of variation!

    Project Gotham Racing 4

    Rated on October 16, 2007 by smylexx

    Fast paced arcade style fun with plenty of variation!

    Many of my friends are huge PGR3 fans and, it seems that for them, this years incarnation of the game is not quite what they expected. Perhaps this isn't the sim-styled racer that they wanted. Mayb...

    Get into the groove with this neat but short-lived racing game!

    Sega Rally Revo

    Rated on September 28, 2007 by smylexx

    Get into the groove with this neat but short-lived racing game!

    Sega's original rally game was a stupendous colossal of a videogame which dominated arcades-and rightly so. It had great handling, aggressive AI rivals and most of all it screamed 'Fun!!' at you for t...

    An above average shooter with great multiplayer aspects.

    Halo 3

    Rated on September 27, 2007 by smylexx

    An above average shooter with great multiplayer aspects.

    First of all, let me explain something; I currently own both a ps3 and an xbox 360. I feel it's important to explain this fact before i'm accused of being biased in my feelings towards this game. In m...

    If you're a fan of the genre and enjoyed the previous incarnations of MoH, you'll find this a satisfying installment.

    Medal of Honor: Airborne

    Rated on September 08, 2007 by smylexx

    If you're a fan of the genre and enjoyed the previous incarnations of MoH, you'll find this a satisfying installment.

    Everyone loves shooting Nazis, right? I know I do. In fact, even in games like Viva Pinata or OutRun, i like to imagine that the enemies are STILL Nazis so that i feel happier about beating them. Any...
