Fez

- Xbox 360

Do you remember the days before the internet? No? Well, congratulations you young buck, you'll outlive me by decades. Yes? Then you'll remember retro gaming as it was - a halcyon time of excited pausing and feverish scribbling of codes, cheats and solutions into the back of your gaming manual, and excited phone-calls to friends to discuss your latest discovery. Father Time is a rather changeabl...

Beat Sneak Bandit

- iPhone

In the densely populated landscape of iOS gaming, spending a penny more than absolutely necessary, can be quite a commitment. Good job, then, that fiscally well-endowed tap-em-up Beat Sneak Bandit is a game with the shelf life, art style, and just-one-more-level gameplay that will turn it from something to kill time with, on your daily commute, to a full-time obsession. The town of Pulsebury...

The Darkness 2

- PS3

Since the 2007 release of The Darkness, the first-person-shooter climate has changed. In the world of Mafia-haggled mainstay Jackie Estacado, two years of darkling denial have passed. In the real world however, five long years have gone by, a console generation has evolved, and a sequel, five years in the making, needs rather more weapons in its daemonic dresser drawer than Digital Extremes' Th...

The Binding of Isaac

- PC

The Binding of Isaac is a work of subtextual intercourse. Chewing its way through society's underbelly, and the macabre, blood spattered basement of one unlucky little boy. Set amid six subterranean levels, packed with fleshy ghouls and deformed, morose monstrosities, The Binding of Isaac is a triumph for indy gaming. Brought to you by one half of Super Meat Boy's Team Meat, in association with...

Bodycount

- Xbox 360

Bodycount is not unlike a Friday night out in Essex with a date battling low self esteem. It's easy to pick up, looks good (in places), makes some nice noises but six hours later you're glad to find it smashed outside your house in the bin. Bodycount isn't bad, let's make this clear from the start. Current gen consoles definitely possess two fists full of worse first-person shooters to punch...

Dead Island

- Xbox 360

Dead Island is full of Zombies. Shambling zombies, flaming zombies, knife wielding zombies, bile spewing zombies, exploding zombies, charging zombies even giant, slow moving zombies, all set against the stunning backdrop of the fictional Australasian island of Banoi. There are more zombies here than you can wield a freshly upgraded monkey wrench at. That said, it's not like we're starved o...

Supremacy MMA

- Xbox 360

Fans of mixed martial arts have had it pretty good in the last few years. The days of harking back into console gaming lore for their MMA fix became a distant memory upon the release of THQ's UFC:Undisputed 2009. Hot on it's heels, EA sports MMA fattened up the buffet by providing an intuitive and alternative control system while drawing on a wider, while possibly less well known, roster of fig...

Driver: San Francisco

- Xbox 360

One could argue that fans of the Driver series have had something of a roller coaster ride over the last 13 years. From the ground breaking highs and critical acclaim received for the first Driver instalment on PS1, to the embarrassing and broken mess that was 'driv3rgate', via the opinion splitting Driver 2 and the entirely forgettable Driver: Parallel lines. It's fair to say, that ardent fans...

Battlefield 3

- Xbox 360

Battlefield 3 is serious fun. DICE have contrived to create the most unforgiving and challenging, yet engaging and enabling, on line first person shooter experience on consoles to date. If you want to do it the hard way, and reap the rewards thereafter, then “It's on you Marines”. Battlefield 3 is a game of two parts, one forgettable, the other a work of exquisite design. Battlefield 3...

Gears of War 3

- Xbox 360

The word 'blockbuster' is thrown around across various media platforms more and more these days. Often, it is the go-to tag line used to adorn promotional material to help shift units. It can be defined as, “Something or someone that is forcefully or overwhelmingly impressive, effective or influential.” or as, “A motion picture, novel etc. especially one lavishly produced, that has or is exp...
