Waves

- PC

I like my twinstick shooters. Ever since Geometry Wars, everyone has their own little spin on them. In core, they all play the same. Not to say that people haven't added interesting new mechanics or twists to the genre. I like to think of myself as a bit of a twinstick shooter connoisseur, I've had a go at the Geometry Wars series, Superstardust HD, Blast Factor, Everyday Shooter. I also have...

Halo Anniversary Edition

- Xbox 360

Yes, it has been that long. This is the ten year anniversary of Halo: Combat Evolved, I was playing this game splitscreen co-op during my early years of college. Arguably the game that introduced most people to First Person Shooters on consoles. But in my view, was possibly the greatest Sci-Fi action adventure game anyone could ask for since MDK. You could say that Halo is just a first person...

Bulletstorm

- PS3

Every once in a while and this happens rarely, somebody makes a purely game for ME. It's an usual thing to mention at the beginning of an review, but Bulletstorm from the ground up, feels like a game that was just purely made for me with my love of being outnumbered in arenas, crazy weapons, combos and points. You'll have to bear with me on this review, because I may mention some obscure titles...

Crackdown 2

- Xbox 360

Crackdown is one of the first games I got for my 360, suggested by a friend that knew I like madcap third person action, GTA sandbox gameplay and platforming and after a while of finding it infuriating that I didn't seem to have any of the promoted superpowers, I jumped around finding orbs and finding orbs was mega addictive. The sound of finding an agility orb and collecting it as you got near...

Heavy Rain

- PS3

I've just had about half an hour to let everything sink in about Heavy Rain. From day one, Heavy Rain has been a project in deep secrecy, which always wanted to lessen the gap between movies and videogames. It seemed to be a very expensive gamble in animation and motion capture, trying to get the 'Uncanny valley'. I never played Indigo Prophecy properly and I tried Omikron too late, I knew...

The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena

- PS3

The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena, in logic is a great value package and as a second hand game is incredibly cheap to pick up. The game itself contains two games developed in the same engine, Escape From Butcher Bay and Assault on Dark Athena. I'll cut to the chase. Buy this if; 1. You were a fan of Escape from Butcher Bay when it was released in 2004. 2. Have never gotten around to...

Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier

- PSP

1st of April this year, Sony did something insane. They announced a game; a new Jak and Daxter game for PSP, all of a sudden all the Jak and Daxter fans in the world stepped into a world of confusion, celebration, anger, bewilderment and disappointment. It wasn't being developed by either Naughty Dog or shockingly, the superb team Ready at Dawn responsible for the incredibly faithful Daxter and...

Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time

- PS3

I will start this review by saying, in my opinion, Ratchet and Clank is the last bastion of the platform game outside of Mario and the dwindling quality of both Sonic and Crash Bandicoot and the 'completed' Naughty Dog developed Jak series. Fortunately, Insomniac have never stopped delivering a great adventure with a Lombax and a Robot saving galaxies for all ages since 2002, originally, I was...

Shatter

- PS3

So, there I was playing this 'breakout clone'. "This isn't made by Q-Entertainment, this isn't a Tetsuya Mizuguchi game, this isn't made by the same genius as Rez, Lumines and the chap who decided to cleverly adapt PC freeware game 'Every Extend'..." Listening to the BGM music, "This isn't Daft Punk, this isn't Justice, but it just sounds so..." I must admit, this...

CellFactor: Psychokinetic Wars

- PS3

First of all, let me point out; the story of Cellfactor: Psychokinetic Wars is vague as heck. Right, three different factions are fighting to the death, playing capture the flag and assault for some grand reason. Hey, I mean, as we learned in UTIII we found out that attempting to flesh out a multiplayer built game like with a narrative was pointless and made the game even more so cringe worthy...

Eat Lead: The Return Of Matt Hazard

- PS3

Whilst I was waiting for Serious Sam 3, Jak4, MDK3 and Duke Nukem Forever, up returns a gaming legend relic again from no where; 'The Man', Matt Hazard. Eat Lead is the new addition to the franchise and this time is based on your typical Third Person Shooter with duck and cover mechanics and rechargeable health ala Gears of War and Uncharted with a two weapon system with its own unique improvem...

Wii Hardware

- Wii

I got myself a secondhand Wii today. Seeing the upcoming games such as MadWorld, The Conduit, Spyborgs, the temptation of the virtual console and the eccentric and innovative Wii-Ware titles, well, I gave in. That and I'd thought I'd buy a cheap Wii before UK retailers shove the price up in April and one was going about £30-40 cheaper than retail prices and six days until MadWorld apparent...

The Maw

- Xbox 360

Well, its out, I think The Maw has been out for going on 4 days internationally on XBLA now. I bet some people are wondering exactly why, me, 'PS3-centric' Cajun Chicken is doing reviewing a XBLA game. I'll tell you why, because it's bloody fantastic. I've recently had a blog submitted about my love of the platform game and how it shouldn't be included in the 'casual' umbrella. This isn't abo...

Resistance 2

- PS3

Wow. Resistance 2's credits are running at the background as I type this. I know that Resistance 2 has been getting average scores left right and centre, but I feel all these low scores are undeserved. I think Resistance 2 is under fire for the fact it does nothing DIFFERENT, which is really the only reason Insomniac are under fire, because Insomniac usually create some great innovation and...
