BioShock

- Xbox 360

Never one to fall prey to hype, particularly when it comes to gaming, it was with interest that I recently picked up a now half-price Bioshock to see what last years fuss was all about. Although an original concept and the artwork, general design & soundtrack are superb, I was left disappointed. The levels are very repetitive & on the short side. There's a slight cartoony feel to t...

Mass Effect

- Xbox 360

Mass Effect: A Fantastic Outer Space Journey Whoa! I am blown away. This is officially the first Xbox game that I have played through and I was, to say the least, quite impressed. I want to begin by saying that I am not very interested in space games. It’s never been something that interests me and with the exception of certain media classics (Star Wars, The Last Starfighter (film), Colony...

Lost Odyssey

- Xbox 360

I actually liked this game a lot and thats saying a lot because I'm a PS3 and Final fantasy fan LOL. Yes it is a very traditional RPG and doesnt introduce anything really new to the genre but the story is amazing (along the lines of Final fantasy) and constantly pulls you back in to continuing this 4 disc game. In the game, you are Kiam who is an immortal for some reason and the game ta...

Burnout Paradise

- Xbox 360

Picture this. Your closing in on the finish line. Four racers are behind you, boosting, desperately trying to catch your ultra-light speed car. Your maybe 4 blocks from the checkered flag when suddenly, a car flies over a cliff, lands on top of you (scoring a vertical take down,) and flat spins into the finish. You cry a little, and but then you realize the beauty of the new Burnout. Open...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

Background: Labbled as Sonys saviour of 07, this title had a lot resting on its shoulders. This was also Naughty Dogs first attempt with the PS3 hardware, and with a huge rep behind them with titles like the infamous Crash series aswell as Jak and Daxter there was a feel in the air that this could infact save Sonys backside from one of the worst years for the console gaming giant‘s history....

Dynasty Warriors 6

- PS3

I am from Germany. I can not speak English well. I translate my letter to the translation engine "Google": (I have played the "Japanese-Version" of the game "DYNASTY WARRIORS 6", aka "SHIN SANGOKU MUSOU 5". I have played the game total about 10 to 15 hours.) My REVIEW: I think the "Dynasty Warriors" series is one of the interesting s...

Pixel Junk Monsters

- PS3

Most people will see the title and say "What about Warhawk? Come on really?" And my answer? "Yes, it is better than Warhawk." First of all. this game is weird looking. I passed on it at first, thinking it was, well, shit. I was so shocked to find that it is the best game I have played in a very, very long time, especially since it only cost 10 bucks. Each level br...

Lost Odyssey

- Xbox 360

The loadtimes, wow the biggest detractor for every professional review, are almost non-existent. Cutscenes load after 1-3 seconds, and battles start about 3-5 seconds, and its not a black load screen or anything its a rotating camera with a quick one liner from a random character in your party. Honestly I have not seen a single time where I have noticed ever waiting at all for the game to conti...

Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War

- PS3

This is an interesting game, previous reviews have rated this game anything from 4/10 to 8-9/10, and I can see why. The game has lots of aspects which make it an involving and enjoyable experience, yet at the same time moments that make you want to tear your hair out and question if this game is serious? Fortunately the former outweigh the latter, leading to game that I quite enjoy, yet I still...

Orcs & Elves

- Nintendo DS

Orcs are the scum of any fantasy world and when you come across one you should kill it first and ask questions later. Orcs usually carry weapons, are heavily armoured, ugly and always stink. They live only to drain the blood from anyone or anything that fights for light and good. I have put many Orcs to the sword this week thanks to the DS game Orcs and Elves from id Software. Orcs and Elv...

FIFA 08

- PS3

I want you to note first that I wrote this in 2 parts. First I wrote about it after a week and then again after playing it for around 4 months. Part 1 The new ball physics and Be A Pro mode are great new additions to the veteran franchise. Game-play is smooth and polished with the new trick system actually be worth trying in the game. The currency in manager mode is finally realistic in...

Super Stardust HD

- PS3

Now this game takes me back. I remember the good old days playing one of the many reincarnations of the classic arcade game asteroids. Super Stardust is basically the high definition and 3D evolution of asteroids. You move your little craft over a circular grid which surrounds one of five different planets. Using this little craft you blast apart asteroids and any other enemies that land on the...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

Uncharted is more than a great game, it is also a great movie (just watch the cutscenes). There is plenty of exploration, action and adventure. The exploration is not an important part of the game per se as the levels are pretty linear, but there is a treasure hunting aspect of the game that helps achieve bonus points which in turn opens up extra features. The game play itself is excellent...

Devil May Cry 4

- PS3

My favorite action game is NG so needlessly I compare this game to that one, I know that they are different but they are alot alike. Would I consider this better than NG, IMO no I wouldn't. So I say all of this as being a big NG fan. This is the first DMC game I have ever owned and really ever played, because I played DMC3 just a little. Anyways, like I said I have only made it through 7 missio...

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

- PS3

Oblivion's game of the year edition. Is it worth the extra just for a couple of extra's for a game you've already completed? YES, it is. The shivering Isle's expansion is great as you get fantastic weapons e.g DuskFang and DawnFang, lethal armor e.g Dadric armor and at the end you become shepgarth himself, can sit in his throne and get his clothes. May not sound like much but that's barely anyt...

Devil May Cry 4

- PS3

Let me start by adding a few provisos. I have never played a DMC game before, and then this review should strictly be for new comers to the series. I love God of War and didn’t think much of Ninja Gaiden (IMO). I have completed DMC4 on devil hunter mode, automatic on the PS3. I won’t go into the story so as not to spoil it for anyone, because it is quite cool. This is my first review ever – so...

Heavenly Sword

- PS3

There is so much to heavenly sword to like and there is so much promise. Heavenly sword is one of the first big titles to come out for the PS3 and was on a mission to showcase the power the PS3 can do. And by looking at this game boy, it can do a lot. The big battle scenes are some of the biggest you would have ever seen in a game with 1000s of troops on the ground with you hacking your w...

Heavenly Sword

- PS3

What can I say about this game. This truly is one of the most beautiful games out there. You play as the gorgeous Nariko who is gifted with amazing martial art techniques passed on to her from her father. You are blessed with the Heavenly Sword which gives Nariko amazing powers but is also killing her at the same time. You have to save your father and your village from the ruthless King...

Saints Row

- Xbox 360

Many have asked is Saints Row for the Xbox 360 just another clone of the sandbox icon Grand Theft Auto? The answer is an unequivocal yes, but that answer is just the beginning of the story. Saints Row is a open environment sandbox game a la GTA, but there are many differences. First of all, Saints Row is about being part of a gang, the Saints, and you are immediately thrown into the gang...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

This game has generated a lot of its own hype - to do that a game has to be very very good. As much as i can see the appeal, i have to admit that i dont feel it is, and heres why. First of all, you have the combat. Don't get me wrong, the AI is decent enough. Not as groundbreaking as many would have you believe, but the npc's are perfectly capable of escaping grenade blasts, and taking cov...
