Knight-Nui

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...

Grand Theft Auto IV

- PS3

I decided to write this review a little differently than I normally do. Since GTA4 is rumored to be around a 100+ hours of gameplay I decided to write this one in pieces while certain parts were still fresh in my mind. So here it goes. First thing you will notice is that there is about 3GB worth of game data (hey at least it doesn't take as long as DMC4) that has to download to your system...

Soulcalibur IV

- PS3

The latest in the Soul Caliber series, Soul Caliber IV is the apex for the series, something not achieved since the original Soul Caliber. Game play is improved from the past two installments. Most of the fighters are well balanced, each with their own movesets and combos. The same rock, paper, scissors relationship to attacks is still present. A couple of new elements have been added, th...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

- PS3

Not since Halo 3 have I seen so much hype surrounding one game. For anyone interested in video games Metal Gear Solid 4 (MGS4) was a unavoidable part of your daily routine. I won't lie, I bought into the hype as well and was right there picking it up the first day it released. During my time with Metal Gear Solid I developed mixed emotions about it before coming to my conclusion. If you...

FIFA 08

- Xbox 360

Fifa 08 is a great game. I highly expected it to be. I have played almost every single fifa soccer game and each one keeps getting better and better. The graphics are always improving and how personalized you can get and how real the gameplay is just blows me away. My favorite new features are Creating your own tournament and the become a pro feature, where you can take control of one play...

Siren: Blood Curse

- PS3

The review First of all, I was amazed by the camera especially FP view because it will add more horror in this series. Secondly, the character design are great specially the little girl and the Japanese guy. Third, the voice acting together with a solid dialogue made my day. However, there are some issues in this game first, the game is too short. Second, the controls and the camera...

Battlefield: Bad Company

- Xbox 360

Well, when I first popped Battlefield: Bad Company and started up single-player campaign on Normal, I was immediately in love with the game. You'll see why once you pick this game up, especially when you meet "Haggard" (one of the squad mates). I am sure that he will get a few laughs out of you. Graphics - 4.5 out of 5. To get straight to the point, I have to say that... graphic...

Alone in the Dark

- PS2

Up until a few months ago, the only horror series I was interested in was Resident Evil. I barely noticed that the other ones existed until I randomly picked up a game to rent that would later be known as Manhunt 2 (Wii, see my review). When I saw the low review scores, I knew I would have to rent this game (and I was looking forward to this game, too). As it turns out, Alone in the Dark is a m...

Beijing 2008

- Xbox 360

It's that time again when patriotism rises to the surface as individual root for the nation's colors and athletes. I Have always loved these type of games and for me it is no different with Beijing 2008. Although some of the control schemes can be a bit complex for certain events they are all doable. The graphics in this game are excellent, and the gameplay is good. I'm not going to get...

SKATE

- Xbox 360

Let me first say that I have been faithful to THPS series since its birth. I have been there to see the slight decline of creativity between versions to the way to complicated gaming controls after adding too many tricks. Don't get me wrong when it first started the controls and moves where in great equal measure of each other but with new additions it has made the controls just to damn difficu...

Alone in the Dark

- Xbox 360

Alone in the Dark looked so great in trailers, unfortunately trailers aren't a good representation of the game itself. Even though this game does have some very nice genre defining features, what it fails at is what it does miserably. You start off as Edward Carnaby who is somehow alive after so many years. You wake up and the opening cutscene can be fairly dramatic, having to open and clo...
