L.A. Noire Review

Friday, 20 May 2011 05:18 Published in Reviews

L.A. Noire is different. It's not like most video games developed by Rockstar. You don't play the outlaw running wild, free to kill, steal, and cause destruction. You're a cop. A good cop at that, determined to restore order to the violent streets of 1940s Los Angeles.


Brink Preview

Saturday, 07 May 2011 23:30 Published in Reviews

"What the hell is it?" That's been the question around team-based shooter Brink for a while now. It's multiplayer but it's single-player. It's like its predecessors Quake Wars and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory but it's totally new. It's a way into online shooting for newcomers but it's hardcore. It's... nope, no idea. Until now.

MotorStorm 3 Apocalypse Review

Thursday, 05 May 2011 06:15 Published in Reviews

The MotorStorm series has always eschewed simulation in favour of big thrills, chaotic racing, and exotic circuits. In MotorStorm: Apocalypse those elements have been refined to focus on what the series does best. The thrills are bigger, the racing is more intense, and the circuits are intricately designed and breathtakingly beautiful. They're also complete and utter anarchy. Earthquakes tear up roads, tornadoes hurl speeding trains at you, and helicopter gunners do everything they can to turn you into a fiery ball of twisted metal. By destroying the very ground you're racing on, Apocalypse throws up constant surprises that test the reflexes of even the most hardened racing fan, making each race an absolute delight from start to finish.

Portal 2 Review

Tuesday, 19 April 2011 21:36 Published in Featured
Portal 2 is an ingeniously designed game that rewards and satisfies. Those who don’t analyze it too closely will find themselves relishing the solving of one puzzle while simultaneously craving the next. Those whose job it is to analyze will reflect and note with amazement the sheer number of obstacles and pitfalls the developers faced. Whether you simply let it wash over you or sit back and think about it, Valve’s latest is a fantastic achievement of the highest order, and one well worth your time. Longevity may be an issue for certain people and the stark sterility of the environments may chafe the artistic mind, but the combination of endlessly clever puzzles and highly entertaining voice performances is more than enough to compensate. This is a gem.


Top Spin 4 Review

Friday, 15 April 2011 08:14 Published in Reviews

In this era of annual sports updates churned out with metronomic regularity, it's rare for the latest version of anything to be greeted with the grand expectations that accompany big-name sequels in other genres. Whether it was a carefully plotted strategy or a consequence of shifting development to 2K Czech though, the near three-year wait for a fourth Top Spin has put us in the rare position of being quite excited about its arrival.


Review: WWE All Stars

Tuesday, 29 March 2011 08:35 Published in Reviews

As someone who grew up in the ’80s, I have fond memories of these rubber WWF toys that I’d ricochet all over my house. Drop Hulk Hogan on his rubbery toes in just the right place and he’d spring forward, smashing face-first into an unsuspecting “Macho Man” Randy Savage. Savage would return the favor, and then I’d tumble them around in the air, textbook wrestling moves amped up to a thousand by my overactive child mind.


Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters Preview

Thursday, 24 March 2011 09:07 Published in Featured

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters has a release date of March 29, 2011. It has a few but important changes that will make the game a great find to new players, especially with the increased focus on a simpler user interface and the addition of caddies. Sometimes, new players of sports games can be put off simply because they often require a deep knowledge of the sport they are replicating. However, the ease of use and assistance for new players will not get in the way for seasoned players.


Homefront Review

Tuesday, 15 March 2011 11:16 Published in Reviews

Homefront is a first-person shooter that challenges players to survive and impact a fictional future scenario in which America has been economically devastated and occupied by a foreign power. In the face of overwhelming oppression, you must choose whether to submit to military forces, take the fight to the enemy or even throw your lot in with the invaders. Additional features include: a single player campaign written by Hollywood screenwriter John Milius, online multiplayer support for up to 32 players, ground and vehicular combat, and more.

Mortal Kombat 2011 Preview

Wednesday, 09 March 2011 21:06 Published in Reviews
A game writer at a large convention will occasionally book a variety of meetings with a company just to be polite. Such was the case with the latest Mortal Kombat game. I agreed to the meeting only because of my interest in Batman: Arkham City, as both games are being published by Warner Bros. In such cases, writers go into the meeting, dutifully play for a few minutes while listening to the pitch, and never think of the game again. Yes, it sounds dishonest, but it's also a defense mechanism against being overwhelmed.
