Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

Well I'm sure you've heard about Uncharted by now, how it's "the game to own on PS3" and how it "sets a new standard in visuals." Well I want to tell you that all of that is true First of all, if you have an HDtv capable of 720p you'll be pleased. I was amazed at the lighting of the jungles, the responsiveness of flora (flowers sway past you as you walk through them), a...

Forza Motorsport 2

- Xbox 360

I’ve never been a real racing fan. I’ve certainly never been a racing simulator fan. Silly me for trying something new. With the exception of knowing how to drive one, I really don’t know much about cars, so I apologize in advance if any incorrect terms are used. Forza Motorsport was released for the original Xbox to critical acclaim and commercial success. It was one the first true race...

Rock Band

- PS3

If Guitar Hero made you feel like a rock star wait until you play the latest musical love fest from Harmonix: Rock Band. From the legendary Ramones and Rolling Stones to Weezer and Fall Out Boy, the range is exceptional. If you've played Guitar Hero III and like the sort of challenge that makes your fingers bleed you won't find it here. That doesn't mean you will be picking up the drums...

N+

- Xbox 360

There are plenty of XBLA titles available. And rarely do any of them feel worth the asking price. However, N+ is a game that offers near infinite replayability with a simple platforming concept that is fun and challenging. All levels in N+ follow the same concept: You are a ninja (stick figure) racing against time to get to an exit. The game starts out easy, walking you through the con...

Halo 3

- Xbox 360

In the months leading up to Halo 3 I could not turn on a TV or buy a soda without being reminded of where I should be on September 25, 2007. Now is Halo 3 the end all be all of video games or the most over hyped title in history? Now given the nature of this website if you are reading this I probably don't need to chronicle the previous adventures of Master Chief because you probably alre...

Everyday Shooter

- PS3

Riff: Everyday Shooter is a PSN title created by a chap called Jonathan Mak. It's a simple shooter that is as hypnotic as it is enjoyable. The game is quite unconventional yet strangely familiar. It has aspects of retro-gaming but showcases how something so basic can retain that likeable quality to just pick up and play whenever. It works a bit like Super Stardust HD or Nucleus. You a...

SingStar

- PS3

I didn’t really know where to start on a review of this ‘game’, so I’ll skip any witty comments or anecdotes and move straight on to a description of what Singstar is all about. The game basically turns your Playstation 3 into a karaoke machine, a pretty good one at that. But if you’re expecting anything more from this then you will surely be disappointed. For anyone new to Singstar, the e...

The Legend Of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

- Nintendo DS

Think of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass as Wind Waker: Episode 2 for your DS, right down to the sailing through cell-shaded prettiness. Don't be hasty and write off Phantom Hourglass because of its accessibility. Where hardcore gameplay is shaved off, pleasing diversity replaces it. A pocket-sized adventure it lives up to the captivating quality of its predecessors. There's remarkable scope for...

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

- PS3

I can not understand it and probably never will but for the life of me I can not figure out how Ratchet and Clank titles never get old or feel stale. I have played every Ratchet and Clank and every one draws me in and keeps me coming back for more. The reason these games are an enigma is because it is the same game over and over again without many changes and yet they are still just as addict...

Warhawk

- PS3

While the last few months have finally seen a rise in PSN activity, and plenty of excellent multiplayer titles, Warhawk still stands as arguably the best mass warfare based game to date. Based on a PS1 title of the same name, Warhawk is a multiplayer only third-person combat game from Incognito. Incognito was formed by Scott Campbell and a few others after the fallout of SingleTrac (studi...

Resistance: Fall of Man

- PS3

If I said Resistance: Fall of Man didn’t remind me of Killzone, I would be a filthy liar. Both feature a basic storyline, a typical combat system, and predictable gameplay. Both have that grey, gritty style of play that’s been done so many times before, and both were hyped beyond belief. Great games in their own respect, but both miserably failed because of in-game mistakes and crushing blows b...

Lost: Via Domus

- Xbox 360

It’s made by Ubisoft; it’s based on a TV show, and its singleplayer only. A true recipe for disaster. Being a huge Lost fan, I wanted this game to be good. Mostly because of the above mentioned reasons, as soon as the game was announced I had an ill feeling. Your character, created specifically for the game, is a passenger on Oceanic 815 and crashes on to the island like everyone else...

Heavenly Sword

- PS3

You start the game and after one level you’re dead. Now I knew this game was meant to be short, but this is ridiculous. Relax, it’s all alright though, you go back in time, and play through the events that lead to your untimely demise. I’m not going to lie to you; this is a shot game, with no multiplayer and one which features limited environments. However the experience, while it lasts, is an...

BioShock

- Xbox 360

Bioshock is a fascinating game that creates a bizarre surreal atmosphere that draws you in even amongst a few flaws. The game is especially interesting because of the philosophical undertones presented throughout the game. Story: Andrew Ryan - a man who wants to get away from the typical confines of governments and institutions of the world during the early- mid 1900’s, creates an underw...

The Simpsons Game

- PS3

A Simpsons game, for the PS3, courtesy of EA. I’ll let you know now my expectations were not that high. Previous Simpsons games haven’t exactly been spectacular and EA have a less than perfect record developing for the PS3. Having been a fan of the Simpsons, through better and through worse, I was hoping all my reservations would be completely unfounded. To tell the truth, I’m still not sure I...

Mass Effect

- Xbox 360

To this point in my gaming life I have yet to be so enthralled with a game that I actually bother to try and do every single side mission (not even GTA). This is in a nut shell how great Mass Effect is, it does a great job of blending a great story (great voice overs, story, graphics, relevant side missions) and game play into one nearly perfect game. Despite the hiccups in the game play Mass...

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

- Xbox 360

Oblivion is a game to keep you up all night, and probably the next night, too. An engrossing RPG, this addition to the Elder Scrolls oeuvre offers you endless variables in a nearly endless environment. Take your time with the pre-game character composition, you'll be clocking a life-shattering number of hours with that thing. You'll choose everything from your race to your sign, each with thei...

Devil May Cry 4

- PS3

So I finished beating Devil May Cry 4 a few hours ago and i gotta say the game is awesome. The game play is just solid. You can upgrade your abilities and your sword techniques through out the game, and I'm gonna tell you right now, you really should upgrade. It would be very hard to pass the game without upgrading. I would say the length of the game has to be around 10 to 14 hours dependin...

Just Cause

- Xbox 360

This is the highest score I have ever given. I desperately wanted to give my first 90%+ review to Just Cause. It may seem hard to believe, but I actually do have somewhat of a scoring policy which I hold to as best I can, even for my favourite games. Just Cause sets you on the South American island of San Espirito, which has everything from beaches, to dense jungles, to massive cities and...
