Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

- PS3

I was saddened around Christmas 2007 when Uncharted: Drakes Fortune came out. I had thought it looked very cool and interesting but wait... It would be 8 months until I finally owned my PS3, but I knew I wouldn't forget this game when I did own one. One faithful afternoon, my brother surprised me with a birthday gift and when I noticed it was Uncharted my face lit up. I had never played a...

Soulcalibur IV

I've written reviews which have been limited to my blog on a message board i frequent. i'm copy-pasting this one mostly since its the most recent game i've reviewed. there are some changes, but... screw it, i'm just gonna do this. EDIT: let me just point out that i'm copy-pasting from MY OWN post before anyone gets the wro...

Braid

- Xbox 360

Let me begin by saying that I believe I have done everything that one can do in Braid. I have collected all of the puzzle pieces. I've gotten the "Closure" achievement, and I have collect every last "extra". There may still be unfound stuff to do, but as of now, I've done everything. I have spent roughly 10 -12 hours on Braid. And I enjoyed every second of it. Graphics:...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

- PS3

A while back i wrote my first review for this site - Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and i thought it was the ****. At the time I had only played that one and i adored the game. Fast forward two months, I have completed Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and about ten days ago Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. I was eagerly anticipating my copy because it was coming...

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution

- Nintendo DS

Civilization Revolution on the Nintendo DS succeeds. I'll get that out of the way first. If you enjoy the Xbox 360 or PS3 version for their game play, you should be happy with this version as well. Although, there are some noteworthy differences. 1. Graphics. Of course a Nintendo DS game won't compare with an Xbox 360/PS3 game, that comes with the territory. In this version, the map is dis...

Burnout Paradise

- PS3

Ever since the horrible experience I had with my first PS3 racing game (Need For Speed Carbon)I have been hoping that Burnout would satisfy my need for a racing game. Fortunately for me this game is a pretty fun game to play when im on the mood for crashing cars and speeding across highways. Burnout Paradise follows the theme of "free roam racing" in Paradise City. There is no re...

LostWinds

- Wii

Mario: Runs, jumps, bops enemies on the head. Sonic: Runs at the speed of sound, spin-jumps, spin-dash enemies. Lara Croft: Runs around in circles, jumps like a mad woman, shoots enemies. Yoshi: Runs, flutter-jumps, eats enemies. Toku: Walks, unable to jump unless hurling himself off a cliff, can’t deal with enemies himself. Instead, LostWind’s hero is forced to rely on a wind “Spirit”, wh...

Scarface: Money. Power. Respect.

- PSP

For the record, I am a big fan of anything SCARFACE, Al Pancio and all that Jazz, but my god, I'm sorry but I just left the gaming store, not reading up on the game "SCARFACE: Money.Power.Respect." - and thought to myself its kind of like a Grand theft Auto; Vice City/Liberty City Stories game like the orignal Scarface for PS2/PC/Xbox etc. We've all played it, and loved it, again...

Siren: New Translation

- PS3

Siren is a horror game with gameplay that I would describe as stealth-action cinematic adventure. The story is told in episodes and chapters through different members of a group of people who find themselves trapped in a lost Japanese village filled with undead nasties called Shibitos. Playing through the game from the perspectives of different characters makes not only for interesting storyt...

The World Ends With You

- Nintendo DS

The World Ends With You. Sounds odd? It is. Sounds exciting? It is. Sounds clever? Not exactly, but it is. Sounds like an RPG? Not realy, but it is. Sounds like the world’s greatest RPG? Is is.# Playing a Neku, a teenage boy living in Tokyo, you wake up one morning in the middle of Shibuya, Japan’s trendiest district, without a single memory in your head. Soon enough, you meet Shiki, a gir...

Space Invaders Extreme

- Nintendo DS

“But it’s just Space Invaders!” Yell everyone, glacing down the page a bit at our score, which, for everyone who’s avoiding looking at it before reading this opening, is rather good and sets the tone of the review to be somewhat more possitive then it could have been. “It’s old, dusty, and there isn’t anything new that can be done with it without ruining it!” Erm, kinda, yeah. That’s why Square...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

- Wii

*More or less spoiler free!* You wouldn't believe what a turning point in our lives this is. For the two-and-a-bit years we've been slowly counting down the days and slowly unwrapping the presents on the website, every now-and-again getting the sort of thing that gave us a Fanboy-ish shiver. We'll free it from the paper and yell. The forum was filled with what could turn out to be spoilers in...

Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

- PS3

Rachet and Clank as been a series I have always loved. The first one was absolutely brilliant as was the subsequent Going Commando. Up Your Arsenal was good but focused more on weapons than platforming and Deadlocked has little to none at all. I am happy to say that Tools of Destruction maintains a balance between action and adventure. The roster of weapons feels new and refreshed whilst...

Assassin's Creed

- PS3

There is so much stuff in this game that one can get lost with. The game play is fun to begin with and the battling style is good until it gets boring. It has the element of both the future and the past and hopefully part two will be focused in the future. Playing the game can get a little much if you're playing now stop. You can develop a headache as time goes on but as a whole the game i...

PixelJunk Eden

- PS3

PixelJunk has released three games so far; PixelJunk Racers, PixelJunk Monsters, and now the newest PixelJunk Eden. Each adding it's own charm to a genre of video game. PixelJunk Eden is a simple yet detailed platformer. Following in the footsteps of LocoRoco and Patapon, PixelJunk Eden has crisp visuals that are easy on the eyes. The animations are smooth and trippy. You play as a...

Grand Theft Auto IV

- PS3

Grand Theft Auto has been a favorite series of mine since GTA III. The idea of free roaming caused many games to go back to the drawing board and a bunch of mediocre clones to follow in its greatness. Grand Theft Auto IV is set in Liberty City (Based on New York City) in 2008 and the first thing you should notice about this city it is incredible resemblance to the real New York City. Mos...

Soulcalibur IV

- Xbox 360

Soulcalibur IV is a great game -- especially if you've been following and enjoying the series for the past few years. There are over 30 characters to try out (granted, some of them are clones of each other), several gorgeous stages to battle in and enough special moves to keep you memorizing commands for months. As you might expect, Soulcalibur IV also has a healthy number of modes and unlockab...

Soulcalibur IV

- PS3

Soul Calibur 4 is finally upon us. It's a exciting thing considering we don't get much quality fighters anymore. Soul Calibur 4 is probably one of the best fighters this generation and easily the best in the series. However that doesn't mean its perfect in fact it is far from such. First off the game is gorgeous easily one of the best looking fighters out there. Environments are indeed de...

Beijing 2008

- PS3

It has been a while since I played an Olympics sports type of game. In fact the last I played was probably more than 15 years back on a PC. There was therefore a certain anticipation of nostalgia when I put the disc in and booted up the game. I bought this game not expecting very much. I just wanted to have a variety of straightforward, short and simple sports games to compete with frie...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

- PS3

There has been much anticipation surrounding the latest chapter in the MSG saga and I am happy to report that this one didn't disappoint. Up until now games like Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare were the gold standard as far as the PS3 console was concerned, they were. After playing through MGS 4, I have to say that this is not only the greatest PS3 title to date, t...
