  • The Godfather II Review

    We weren’t surprised in the slightest to learn that EA’s Redwood Studios houses the development teams for both ‘The Sims’ and ‘The Godfather II,’ because there’s something very “Sim-like” about EA’s latest game in the Godfather franchise. T...

  • Wheelman Review

    It's blatantly apparent from the outset that Midway Newcastle has taken some of its design inspiration for Wheelman directly from the Grand Theft Auto series. With such a heavy focus on driving missions, the developer would have been crazy if it hadn't attempted to imitate some of the same features ...

  • Astro Tripper Review

    Wow, another top-down shooter on the PlayStation Network?! How… unoriginal. Yet, despite its wealth of competitors, PomPom Games’ Astro Tripper manages to stand out from the crowd with its retro, healthily streamlined gameplay, not to mention its very affordable price point. You see,...

  • Resident Evil 5 Review

    Let’s get one thing abundantly clear from the start – Resident Evil 5 is not a survival horror game. Far removed from its predecessors, this latest entry in Capcom’s venerable franchise is an action-packed shooter, filled to the rafters with intense battles, ostentatious bosses, an...

  • Resistance: Retribution Review

    Resistance: Retribution is the latest third-person shooter from Sony Bend, known primarily for its Syphon Filter titles on the PlayStation Portable. Announced last year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Sony Bend and Insomniac Games worked closely together in order to develop a title that helped...

  • HAWX Review

    The Tom Clancy bandwagon continues to roll in 2009, but this year Ubisoft has abandoned the ground-battles of Mexico and close-quarters combat of Las Vegas for the franchise’s first foray into the flight combat genre. Taking to the war-torn skies over the likes of Rio De Janeiro, Afghanistan a...

  • MLB 09: The Show Review

    It’s that time of year again when the snow trickles away, the air warms up, and parents bring their kids to Spring Training to get a first glimpse at the superstars of tomorrow. Baseball season is right around the corner, and with it comes the annual release of what has quickly become the gami...

  • X-Blades Review

    X-Blades almost snuck under our review radar, and we really wish it had. On the surface, what appears to be a exciting fantasy hack ‘n’ slash adventure, complete with busty heroine and hugely varied bestiary, is nothing more than a dull, flawed and unexceptional journey of relentless but...

  • 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand Review

    50 Cent: Blood on the Sand’s surreal and far-fetched storyline, which sees the foul-mouthed rapper and his G-Unit buddies tackling a bunch of heavily-armed thugs in the Middle-East in the search of a diamond-embedded skull, doesn’t bode well for the rest the game. The underwhelming graph...

  • Shellshock 2: Blood Trails Review

    From this point forth I need to remind myself not to review another first person shooter straight after playing Killzone 2. Following a four hour stint immersed in Guerrilla Game’s epic first person shooter, Rebellion’s Shellshock 2: Blood Trails is probably the worst game I could have p...

  • F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin Review

    A great American president once said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Now let’s amend FDR’s famous quote for the 21st century. “The only thing we have to fear is F.E.A.R. itself.” Monolith Productions’ F.E.A.R., or First Encounter Assault...

  • Street Fighter IV Review

    Shoryuken!!! Few videogame series have made such a strong impact on their respective genres in the way that Street Fighter has over its 20 year lifespan. My memories take me back to the early-Nineties and Street Fighter II, which was heralded as being the catalyst that ignited the fighting game boom...

  • Corsair 64GB Flash Drive HDD upgrade review

    Chances are if you've been in the market for a flash drive, you've made your way to the local electronics store and let your eyes glaze over the variety of 1-16GB flash drives in stock. However, have you ever wanted more from the handy little devices? If so, memory manufacturer Corsair has taken the...

  • Flower Review

    From the creators behind the surreal PlayStation Network game, flOw, Flower is ThatGameCompany’s latest bite-sized, downloadable offering that is all set to spread its multicolored love with a fine sprinkling of flower petals, deep sunsets, red skies and lush green meadows just in time for Val...

  • Killzone 2 Review

    ‘Epic’ is a word that is loosely banded around the videogame industry. In practically every press release pimping the latest game that comes fluttering into our inbox, we find that very noun used nonchalantly by publishers trying to convince us that its game will be the next big thing. T...

  • Mad Catz Fender Precision Bass and Overdrive Pedal Review

    You're chilling in your living room with three buddies preparing to play some Rock Band 2 when it suddenly hits you: someone will have to play bass. It's a low point in anyone's day, because the bassist never gets any respect. Instead of feeling like the runt of the litter, bassists can now rejoice;...

  • Mad Catz Saitek PS2700 Controller Review

    We've all seen the expensive mods over the last year demonstrating what it would be like if the DualShock 3 met the Xbox 360 controller and produced offspring from that encounter. While this process was disturbing (and exciting) for fans of both machines, it would be even more disturbing for their w...

  • Mad Catz Saitek Aviator Flight Stick Review

    Flight Sticks appear to be going the way of the cartridge in the console gaming industry. It's no secret that flight games featured on the PlayStation 3 have yet to feel as fluid as they should when being controlled by a flight stick. With titles like Warhawk opening up the world of airborne combat ...

  • Street Fighter IV FightPads and FightSticks Reviews

    When it comes down to third-party peripherals in the console world, most consumers turn their heads to Nyko Technologies. This is partly because of a shoddy past from the company we've all come to shake our heads towards, Mad Catz. With a long line of products that would break with a slight amount o...

  • Skate 2 Review

    When the first game in a new franchise turns out to be hugely popular amongst the masses and shifts millions of units in the process, it’s logical that the developer will try to emulate its success with more of the same. Unfortunately, many follow-ups have one overarching common factor: they&r...

  • Mini Chat-Board for PS3 Review

    I’ve got a tip for you. Never attempt to open rigid, plastic clamshell packaging with a knife. You’ll be risking yourself serious injury. I nearly stabbed myself in the leg trying to butcher my way through to the Mini-Chat board. After my first few jabs with the knife the fear of injury ...

  • Lord of the Rings: Conquest Review

    Who can forget the moment when thousands of Saruman's Uruk-Hai swarmed toward the Rohirrim’s stronghold at Helm’s Deep and the mighty Gandalf led the charge downhill on his white steed full pelt into the black Orc masses? The Battle of Helm’s Deep from The Lord of The Rings: The Tw...

  • Crash Commando Review

    Taking its inspiration from a number of popular games in the shooter genre and sub-genres, Crash Commando could be described as an amalgamation, albeit a pint-sized portion, of some of the most celebrated shooters ever created. Although the developer, EPOS Game Studios, has borrowed/stolen its id...

  • Sonic Unleashed Review

    Sonic The Hedgehog first rolled onto the Sega Mega Drive over 15 years ago and almost overnight became one of the most recognizable icons in the video game industry. With a colorful career spanning over several generations of video game systems the speedy, spiky-haired mammal has achieved impressive...

  • Prince of Persia Review

    History is a key word when discussing a franchise like Prince of Persia. The series, which made its debut way back in 1989, had a profound impact on the videogames industry, influencing much in the way games are both made and looked at to this very day. While the Sands of Time is worthy of the prais...
