Bastion Review – Cool Kid

By  •  Reviews

‘Proper story’s supposed to start at the beginning, ain’t so simple with this one. Now here’s a kid whose whole world got all twisted, leaving him stranded on a rock in the sky. He gets up, sets off for the Bastion, where everyone agreed to go in case of trouble. The ground forms up under his feet as if pointing the way, he don’t stop to wonder why. Finds his lifelong friend just lying in the road.’ Read Review

SSX Review – Snowbound

Games are about freedom. Whether that means killing hordes of hookers in Grand Theft Auto because you don’t have to deal with the consequences, soaring above city skyscrapers and the confines of mortality in superhero titles like Spider-man 2 and Prototype, or in the case of today’s typical RPG, making the simple choice to say something you would never say to anyone in real life; it’s abundantly clear that we play video games because of a primal passion to sherk our societal bonds and become the absolute embodiment of self-determination without the slightest slap of the wrist.

Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater Review – Slithering

By  •  Reviews

Historically, Solid Snake has successfully slithered onto the home consoles to much adoration and applaud. Incredible graphics, unique gameplay, a gripping plot; the answer to Metal Gear’s success seems obvious doesn’t it? But there was more to it than that; though we never quite realised it at the time.

Binary Domain Review – Sleeper Hit

By  •  Reviews

Looks can be deceiving. Take SEGA’s squad-based third-person shooter Binary Domain for example. On first appearance, we’ve seen it all before: Big genetic monsters of men wielding oversized weapons, blurting out a handful of expletives without any justification; a horde of never-ending enemies trudge forward with reckless abandon, halted only by a barricade of bullets. It’s gritty action injected with more testosterone than a doped up athlete, with bullish bravado and male chauvinism flaunted at every possible opportunity. Read Review

Alan Wake Review – Book Smarts

By  •  Reviews

Released exclusively for the Xbox 360 in 2010, Remedy’s long awaited physiological thriller, Alan Wake, has finally stumbled out of the darkness and made its way onto the PC platform. With their previous games Max Payne and Max Payne 2 initially releasing on the personal computer, it’s refreshing to see that Remedy haven’t forgotten where they first cut their teeth in the world of video games Read Review

Rayman Origins Review – Armless

Gaming gurus are well aware that the eleventh month of every year tends to crank the intensity dial on our consoles far past eleven, and this traditional rule of thumb has never held more true than in the year 2011. Read Review

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations Review – Deja Vu

By  •  Reviews

Ah, Mr. Ezio Auditore da Firenze. It’s good to see you again. Why it feels as if it was only yesterday that we accompanied each other through the cultured streets of Rome, murdering and pillaging those Templar scoundrels along the way. I fondly recall the time when we scaled countless magnificent monuments, recklessly swan diving to an almost certain demise, only to land playfully in a coincidentally placed cart of hay.

Super Mario 3D Land Review – He’s Back!

By  •  Reviews

Instantly recognisable, extraordinarily charming and enduringly brilliant, Mario is a timeless patron for all that is good in video games. Encompassing a myriad of different platforms throughout his renowned history, Mario manages to captivate a new generation of gamers, whilst redefining the expectations of fans who already have their own fantastic memories of the portly plumber. Iteration after iteration, Mario spearheads ingenuity and creativity, never faltering on areas such as quality, presentation and the most important aspect of all, fun. Read Review

Halo: Combat Evolved – Anniversary Review – Combat Reborn

Halo divided camps from the beginning: those who saw the Xbox’s prized launch title as nothing more than a polished copy of previous shooter principles, and those who understood the revolutionary nature of its open-ended gameplay and eloquently scripted plot. While those same camp wars continue, the latter group have been graced once more with Halo: Combat Evolved – Anniversary, an honorary, graphically-enhanced salute to Bungie’s loyal ten-year fanbase.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Review – Here We Go Again

By  •  Reviews

After surviving an unforeseeable in-house dispute between certain ex-employees of Infinity Ward and the powers that be at Activision, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 suffered a relatively turbulent beginning. The loss of a number of high profile, key members of staff was an unfortunate predicament; though the initial uproar and debate as to whether this signalled the demise of the Modern Warfare franchise was perhaps somewhat over-exaggerated.

“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did.” Read Review
