Batman: Arkham City
Arkham City stands out alone as a awesome Batman game, but also a fantastic follow up from 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum
In my original review of Arkham Asylum back in 2009 I made comment on how much attention had been placed onto Batman in the past decade. With said decade well and truly over, it's fair to say by two h...
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing with Banjo-Kazooie
Sonic and Sega All-Stars offers tight controls and variety of gameplay options, making for a fun and exciting experience
How many times has companies aspired after the success Nintendo has achieved with its Mario Kart series? In short, a lot. Sega has it's own black history in this regard, most notable being the Sega Sa...
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Transformers: DOTM isn't what you would expect from High Moon Studios, but do well enough to deliver something fun.
Movie tie in's are generally a rushed and unpolished affair. Developers are commissioned by movie studio's and their publishers to turn around a game quickly by the time it's movie counterpart is to h...
Rock Band 3
Rock Band 3 is starting to show signs of slowing down, but with added elements such as keyboard, it remains fresh.
Saying it right now; I bypassed Rock Band 2. So due to the publishers inability to give Australia a local release of the game, I look at Rock Band 3 as a massive leap forward; since the only foundatio...
Alan Wake, while not being the genre defining game many hoped for, is an entertaining and enjoyable experience
Alan Wake could be described in a few different ways. Silent Hill clone, slow paced Resident Evil knock off, cheesy video game version of a Stephen King novel. All are probably true, but in my opinion...
Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect 2 is Bioware's own 'Empire Strikes Back', improving on the original, while delivering on all it's promises.
Mass Effect is probably one of my favorite games of the past decade. Period. It had it's problems, almost inexcusable problems, but it didn't mare the obviously brilliant story and complex and interes...
Guitar Hero 5
For once, the Guitar Hero series moves in a direction that finally gives it some edge against Rock band
With any popular genre, there are always two series' that are constantly fighting for dominance as their respected legions of fanboys flame each other on the Interwebz. Sega and Nintendo. Star Wars an...
Mirror's Edges gives players a challenging fast paced gameplay, but ultimately fails at delivering something special
Upon it's announcement and release last year, Mirror's Edge was a beacon of hope that game publishers like EA hadn't lost it's heart for original games. Mirror's Edge and Dead Space were two hotly ant...
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
New Super Mario Brothers Wii is an ideal traditional platformer that not only entertains but challenges you as well
I'll try not to gush, but I've really enjoyed playing New Super Mario Brothers Wii. Maybe I got caught up in the nostalgia of it all, maybe I'm just a sucker for Nintendo's Mario charm, or maybe just ...
Dragon Age: Origins
Bioware return to the realm of fantasy to deliver a remarkably solid and satisfying RPG game
Bioware is possibly one of my favorite developers of this decade. It was the brilliant Knights of the Old Republic game that founded my love of Star Wars (something I thought as lame and boring), thei...
Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony
The Ballad of Gay Tony is the final explosive chapter of the GTAIV story
Who would had thought a game with such a lengthy story line would spawn two cohesive and complete expansions? Grand Theft Auto IV from a narrative prospective, is epic. The Ballad of Gay Tony puts...
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Inspired directly by The Dark Knight's stellar published history, Arkham Asylum is a truly fantastic game
Batman has been getting the royal VIP treatment these past years. Beginning in 2005, he received a critically and finical successful film, which was then picked up for a sequel for 2008, and went on t...
Tales of Vesperia
The latest entry in the long-running Tales series, which sees the move into HD. Vesperia is a wonderfully crafted JRPG
There isn't many negative things I can say about this game, Tales of Vesperia is just that good. It's not one of the best titles ever made, and it certainly isn't the most technologically advanced. It...
Prototype performs well as a sandbox game and action game, but when it comes to plot, falls flat on its face
Prior to Prototype's release, I was watching the game. The idea of controlling an all powerful virus infected man sounded cool on paper, and well, it's even more cool when you actually play it. You...
The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai
Play as The Dishwasher and cut your way through a blood soaked adventure
The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai is just the type of thing I want to see in terms of Arcade content on XBL. It's stylish, gory and is totally different from any other. Going into my experience with Di...
Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned
Get on your bike and ride. Return to Liberty City and experience a whole new campaign for GTAIV
Okay, so my opening blurb was pretty lame. I've actually tried to write this review a few times. Anyway! The Lost and Damned, a downloadable add on for GTAIV. Wow, how add on content has come a long w...
Resident Evil 5
Resident Evil 5 is an action packed horror game, delivering a whole fully enjoyable experience.
I love Resident Evil, plain and simple. When this game was announced not long after Resident Evil 4 was put up on shelf's, I begun to salivate. If RE4 was anything to go buy, RE5 was going to bigger a...
Halo Wars attempts to popularize the RTS on consoles using the expansive Halo Universe with a degree of success
Fact: I have never played an RTS game before. Fact: I didn't care a lick about Halo Wars until I decided to one day download the demo and give it a try. Fact: I enjoyed it! I never intended ...
LEGO Batman: The Videogame
Lego Batman offers the same as every other Lego game before it, yet is based in the dark world of the Dark Knight
The Lego series of games have become quite popular in recent years. Surely they don't make the same level of impact on the gaming community as did the first Lego Star Wars game, but still to this day ...
Fallout 3 takes you to a gritty realistic future set in an post apocalyptic world. A truly rewarding gaming experience
Your nineteen years old. Your father has gone missing. You have journeyed away from the safe walls of Vault 101 in order to find him, traipsing into 'The Wastes', a place populated by radioactive muta...
Guitar Hero World Tour
With this latest installment, Guitar Hero attempts to emulate a formula it's developers weren't ready for
When one thinks of Rhythm games nowadays, one tends to think of Guitar Hero. The first two games single handily created a new gaming icon, cemented in the millions upon millions the series has made ev...
Rock Band goes one level above other music games and delivers a solid and wonderful rock-star simulating experience
If you haven't played Rock Band yet, your probably a) not into music games, b) you're musically challenged or c) you live in Australia. Despite the massive delay it took for this game to grace our f...
In a show of blistering speed, Sonic escapes a grim fate and almost makes it work in this latest installment
Since 1998, the year Sega's last baby console dawned upon us all, and Sonic Adventure was unleashed, hitting us all in the face with jaw-dropping CG cut scenes, Sega haven't been able to get it right,...
Dead Space goes to great lengths to deliver an atmospheric, creepy, and enthralling experience
I've kept my eyes open for this game since it was first announced. As a part-time survival horror nut (I say part time because I really only enjoy the Resident Evil games) I was keenly interested in t...
As squeals go, Fable II is of the highest quality, though sadly it can't shake all of those flaws from the original
I was one of those people who bought into the Fable factor on the the Xbox. I was one of those people who saw it as a changing face in the gaming world. I was one of those people who after finishing e...
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
The'missing link' of the film trilogy, The Force Unleashed satisfies with a brilliant story, and intense force action
Despite the fact I wasn't alive for the original trilogy, I've been a long standing fan of the Star Wars universe since I first saw 'A New Hope' when I was 5. Over the years I've enjoyed the films (ye...
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
After half a decade, Smash Brothers returns, ripping onto the Wii with authority
The original Smash Brothers was a gamble for Nintendo, as the game was originally a Japan-only release. When it was released in the West, it exploded. It became one of the N64's biggest releases. The ...
The Orange Box
The Orange Box is possibly the greatest deal in video game history. A full package of gaming delight.
I have to admit something first. I have not played Team Fortress 2. I don't play games online, so this pretty much makes TF2 useless to me. I will not factor Team Fortress 2 into my review of The Oran...
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3
Yet another Dragonball Z game, that, actually has enough in it to hold your focus for longer than two hours.
Dragonball Z game's have gotten to that stage where they simply don't offer anything new, except new characters and new stages etc. Budokai Tenkaichi 3 offers probably the most expansive roster of fig...
Mario Kart Wii
Mario Kart Wii is a lot of fun, however is sadly just more of the same from over a decade ago
Mario Kart is a right of passage for Nintendo consoles now, after being featured on every home console Nintendo has released since the Super Nintendo. Yet after 5 prior games, the Mario Kart series ha...
Grand Theft Auto IV
A brilliant entrance into the next generation with this latest installment.
I've never been one for Grand Theft Auto, I found the controls too tacked on, and the combat weak. Though I always saw the appeal people saw in it, it's just I was unable to see past the very flawed h...
Pokemon Battle Revolution
A shallowly presented game with shallow gameplay. Only enjoyable if you own the DS games
I remember the old games for the N64, Pokémon Stadium 1 & 2. Those two games worked, because of their new and fresh feeling. Not only if gave players to battle their hard trained Pokémon in full 3D, b...
Pocket Monsters Diamond
Another notch in the franchise's long history, but unlike the previous installment, is actually enjoyable
Pokémon is one of those things most people are ashamed of, in other words, it's a guilty pleasure for most of us who grew up as kids during the late 90's. Such was the excitement of playing Red, Blue ...
Get past the complex and interesting (and sometimes not so interesting) plot, and you have a boring generic game.
This game is what some would refer as, "having the hype machine work overtime" Upon loading it up, I had expectations of this game. However, 1 minute into it everything was crushed as I learnt of t...
An Outstanding game on its own merits. And in the world of console RPG, stand amongst the best.
Mass Effect is a game where one can loose one's self in completely. BIoware has worked hard to ensure the player will be swept up in an epic tale that sees the player cross the galaxy to rid it of evi...
Super Mario Galaxy
A welcome return to the familiar formula seen in Super Mario 64, but with outstanding differences!
I'm beginning to notice, that when Nintendo releases a major game of one of their franchises, everyone takes notice. Super Mario Galaxy is an utterly brilliant game. One would have a hard time try...
One of the all time best FPS'. Combat is immersive, with a great story line, its good to see a decent shooter out there.
Half Life 2 is a game every xbox onwer must play, considering most of the players are fans of FPS anyway, there is no escuse for them NOT to play this amazing game. The story of the game is somewha...
Amazing. A perfect trip down memory lane to where it all began. One of the best Resident Evil games out there
Resident Evil is by far, one of the most decent games for the cube. One can look at a Resident Evil game and only see one drawback, the controls. Sure RE 4 has come along, and changed the face of the ...
Shadow the Hedgehog
Doesnt quite hit the mark, but regardless, a decent game to fill in the time
Being a self proclaimed Sonic Freak, I picked this game up to see how Sega had handled this latest spin off from the Sonic world. And, there was mixed reactions to the say the least The game itself...
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Outstanding. One of the best games for the console, let alone one of the all time great RPG's. A fantastic sequel.
If you played Knights of the Old Republic 1, chances are you’ll feel right at home with The Sith Lords. The basic gameplay and flow of the controls of the game are basically the same as with the first...
