  • Sacred 2: Fallen Angel Review

    For a genre that is generally more suited to a keyboard and mouse, action role-playing game developers tend to shy away from trying to map dozens of commands to a controller. Inevitably, when developers do take that plunge, it means that they have to amend their game significantly to simplify it for...

  • Sacred Citadel Review - how much nostalgia do you like with your beat-'em-up?

    Beat-'em-ups -- a long, historic, well loved genre. The SNES and Genesis days were their golden generation with the likes of Streets of Rage and Final Fight doing the rounds. These days, thanks to the PlayStation Network, Indie developers are getting more limelight to show off their wares, with beat...

  • Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers Review

    There's a solidity to Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers, but that's about it. The franchise isn't exactly one of the biggest Japanese exports (and, especially in gaming, Japan isn't currently in vogue), but it clearly has e a fan-base to have survived from 1986 to now. However, fans will probably be let d...

  • Saints Row 2 Review

    The original Saints Row was often looked at as a Grand Theft Auto rip-off. A lot of gamers displayed their distaste for the game's lack of originality and merely thought of it as the bridge to Grand Theft Auto IV. Little did they know that Saints Row would display the staying power and appeal that i...

  • Saints Row IV Review: The parody of a generation

    Deep Silver and Volition would have you believe that Saints Row IV is the Game of the Generation. It's not. Saints Row IV is, however, the Parody of the Generation. That word--parody--has been tossed at the franchise before (perhaps rightfully so), but this installment is different. Saints Row IV do...

  • Saints Row: The Third Review

    In a season of very serious, very deep games comes a title from Volition that brings out the inner 13-year-old in all of us. Saints Row: The Third, from publisher THQ, is crass, offensive, derogatory, and violent in the best possible way. For everything the studio sought to accomplish, including an ...

  • Sega Rally Revo PSP Review

    Ask anyone to name a rally title, and it’s a fair bet to assume that Sega Rally will be one of the first examples that pops into their head. Indeed, Sega’s rugged, off-road extravaganza has graced a myriad of platforms over the years and it's no doubt it is still one of the most beloved ...

  • Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes Review

    The quintessentially Japanese, over-the-top, flamboyant approach to the hack ‘n slash genre is an acquired taste. Some would say that the Dynasty Warriors-style, button-mashing, repetitive actions of slaying hundreds of brainless characters is a formula that is in desperate need of an overhaul...

  • Shadows of the Damned Review

    A good buddy flick brings life to the mundane. A good road movie is a crazy adventure with obscure outcomes rivalled by too much cough syrup on a hot summer afternoon, or awaking from a nightmare just as the clown sinks its razor-sharp yellow teeth into your ankle. Everything that Shadows of the Dam...

  • Shank Review

    Shank is a lot of things. From a gameplay perspective it’s a traditional 2D side scrolling action game that is clearly influenced by the likes of 1980’s coin-op beat ‘em up Double Dragon. From a visual viewpoint, Shank sports an expressive art-style similar to a Spider Man or X-Men...

  • Shaun White Skateboarding Review

    Shaun White is one of the most successful and talented young athletes of our time — just look at all the gold hanging around his neck. There is no doubt that he is an athlete here to stay, representing team U.S. on the slopes, and wowing audiences on half-pipes. He’s even acquired enough...

  • 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...

  • Shift 2 Unleashed Review

    Hot off the heels of Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 5, Slightly Mad Studios’ Shift 2 Unleashed seeks to speed by its esteemed competition and claim the top spot on the racing sim podium. The second installment in the Shift series — a more realistic offshoot of Electronic Arts&rsq...

  • Shift Extended Review

    You are nameless. You are black or white. You are playing a port of a port. Those statements are all accurate if you check out Shift Extended, a Mini available now on the PlayStation Network. This little bundle of familiarity started its life as a flash game, and was later released on smartphones wi...

  • Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen Review

    One of the first things that any boy, myself included, finds worth pursuing, behind only fire fighting and being a superhero, is being a ninja. Having the ability to jump from the shadows to exact a glorious death for some sort of ninja cause even piques the interest of adults, and having an opportu...

  • Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigmi's Longest Day Review

    Short Peace Ranko Tsukigmi is the latest offering from the masterminds at Grasshopper Games, directed by the incredible Goichi Suda -- aka Suda51. This time around, the game follows the life of Ranko, and boasts a very unique anime style created by multiple different artists. Though it looks good mo...

  • Shrek the Third Review

    Everyone’s favorite sarcastic ogre is back from his movie debut to grace the gaming world with yet another movie-licensed game. No, we’re not talking about Vince Vaughn (sorry Vince). Of course we mean Shrek, as portrayed by the remarkably talented Mike Myers. Shrek the Third represents ...

  • Silent Hill: Book of Memories Review

    The Survival Horror genre has been rapidly declining since the mid-2000s. Changing tastes among consumers and pressure from corporate bigwigs alike has forced the likes of Capcom and Konami to slowly transition away from the methodical, cerebral-based antics of old and instead go down a more mainstr...

  • Silent Hill: Downpour Review

    Debuting in 1999, Silent Hill has consistently remained one of Survival Horror’s tent pole franchises alongside fellow Capcom juggernaut Resident Evil. However, while in the past half a decade or so many series have slowly made the transition into full-blown action territory. Konami’...

  • Silent Hill: Homecoming Review

    Picture the scene, if you will. You’re walking down a deserted, fog-bound street in the middle of summer, flakes of snow falling to the ground all around you. The sidewalk is littered with abandoned vehicles and boarded up shops; the whole town is conspicuously devoid of life. Then, all of a s...

  • Silent Hill: Origins Review

    It’s time to turn the lights off, throw on the headphones and delve into the dark and twisted town of Silent Hill once again. Climax Studios in unison with Konami have decided to bring you another step in the beloved and suspenseful series. With the release of four titles to consoles and a maj...

  • SingStar Dance Review

    If you’ve ever wanted to dance like a 12 year-old Michael Jackson, or slide across the dance floor Jamiroquai-style, or even strut your stuff like pretty boy Jordan Knight from New Kids On The Block, then SingStar Dance may be right up your street. Those three artists and more combine to c...

  • SingStar Queen Review

    In the world of videogames the competitive karaoke scene has long been dominated by Sony Computer Entertainment’s SingStar franchise, and there are no signs of it slowing down just yet. Queen becomes the second band following Abba to get its own SingStar game, giving males across the world an ...

  • Singstar Review

    Fancy yourself as the next American Idol winner? Maybe you’ve got an undiscovered talent that’s hidden away in the shower? Well fear not, you can sing to your heart’s content in PS3’s exclusive new release, SingStar. Singstar games have never represented the most value for...

  • SingStar Review

    While karaoke games have come and gone on home consoles, only one has truly dominated the market -- SingStar. With the release of SingStar onto the PlayStation 3, the world was subjected to experiencing some of the worst vocal talents it has to offer – some of the best as well. This is London ...
