Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

- PS3

If you haven't given into the music game genre yet and played Guitar Hero, then skip the exercise in franchise milking and go buy Rock Band. If, however, you are a Guitar Hero enthusiast then please, pull out the leather pants and read on. The Guitar Hero fan base is practically insatiable, and I more than love the addition to the party game genre. There really is something magical about a g...

Marble Blast Ultra

- Xbox 360

You control a marble and lead it through a series of obstacles to complete the level. Who knew something this simple could be so fun? The marble is controlled by the thumbsticks, the A button is jump, RB is for double jump, and RT is to activate powerups. The object of the game is to get your marble to finish line while trying to not fall off the edge of this 3D world, all within par time....

Viva Pinata

- Xbox 360

Even with its sights set on a younger generation there is no denying that Viva Pinata has some sort of Harry Potter spell over older folks, too. An engaging sim with a good dose of Animal Crossing, it is hard to resist the candy filled contents of Viva Pinata. The game's objective is a bit elusive, though if you are my nephew it's to whack "bad guys" (sour pinatas) with the sho...

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men

- Xbox 360

Gritty, cold, harsh, bad, hard men doing bad things to each other and anyone unfortunate enough to get in their way! What a load of overblown nonsense! This game was portrayed before release as a game with a wonderful deep story line, something that would inject progress into a tired genre. Who cares if you are doing the same old shooter if the story line is involving. Movies have been doi...

God of War: Chains of Olympus

- PSP

To answer that question, yes it does. From the makers of Daxter, ReadyAtDawn Studios bring you God of War: Chains of Olympus. These guys know how to make a badass game on the PSP, no joke. God of War: Chains of Olympus takes you on a wild ride from Attica, to the Underworld itself. You play of course as Kratos our Spartan of love who's always around when you need him (not really but you ge...

Mass Effect

- Xbox 360

Mass Effect is well known for its story, but that is really all it is known well for. From touchy combat, pointless side quests, unorganized equipment, short main story, much touted dialog tree that changes nothing and a massive galaxy you cannot fully explore. Bioware has given us an amazing story which will make many of us who’ve played this game a heavy want for a speedy sequel. You s...

Resistance: Fall of Man

- PS3

Okay at the risk of getting assaulted by PS3 fans I will preface the rest of this review by telling you now that I was not very impressed by Resistance Fall of Man. If you are a Resistance fanboy I would suggest that you stop reading now so that I might spare your feelings. Resistance Fall of Man is the story of Nathan Hale and the alternate reality that Insomniac presents us. Basically...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

If you are like me and are sick of the slew of short (12 hrs or under) games coming out on consoles, then just remember that uncharted is no different in this department. It can be beaten rather quickly, so if you have not played it you may be better off hiring this bad boy. That said, what you get is quality over quantity. I'm not going to repeat what all the official and respected (some...

Madden NFL 08

- PS3

Background: Madden NFL is one of the industry’s longest running franchises, first released in 1989. There are plenty of gamers in the U.S of A who describe their hobby as “Madden” , not “videogames”, because they simply don’t play anything else. These people along with a load of others are the gamers who felt disappointed my EA’s 07 next gen effort of madden, and looking for the “real” next g...

Dead Rising

- Xbox 360

Stuck in Willamette Parkview Mall, you are Frank West, a freelance photojournalist. Armed with your camera and any everyday shopping item you can find, you must attempt to survive for 72 hours. The mall is infested with zombies and the only way to figure out the truth behind the outbreak is by finding ‘case files’. These files are found by completing tasks throughout the game and unveil t...

Burnout Paradise

- Xbox 360

It honestly never gets old; watching your car fly apart as you are traveling faster than any human ever should on a public road. As much as I enjoyed watching cars almost explode in previous Burnout games nothing compares to watching the realistic crashes in Criterion's newest Burnout title. Very rarely can an established game reinvent itself and improve the overall formula; Capcom did it wit...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

- PS3

Welcome to the definitive Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 review. That’s right, you can now officially ignore every other PES08 review. Well, perhaps I’m getting a bit ahead of myself here. The reason for this, is not that my review is simply of superior quality to all the others. Indeed, most reviews were many months ago, so in that regards I’ve missed the boat. But what time has granted me though i...

Endless Ocean

- Wii

Endless Ocean on its surface is a simulation masquerading as a video game. Two years ago, Endless Ocean would never have had a chance outside of Japan. Flash forward to today, and the Wii is the number one console in terms of sales figures and Endless Ocean arrives with a fresh scent of ocean air. Endless Ocean will not appeal to everyone on the surface, however, once you complete your f...

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...
