    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 hit blockbuster movie... Read Full Review

    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 Saturn/PC 'Sonic R', a... Read Full Review

    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 hit theatres. This re... Read Full Review

    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 foundation of the series I ha... Read Full Review

    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, it's the latter th... Read Full Review
