  • Split/Second Review

    True racing simulators have the ability to capture the authenticity and intensity of speeding through a course on famous or fictitious racetracks alike. Black Rock Studio’s Split/Second takes the idea of a racing sim, and curb-stomps it with adrenaline rich explosions and larger-than life dest...

  • ModNation Racers Review

    If you’ve played LittleBigPlanet you’ll instantly feel a home with ModNation Racers. Not only does the humour and colourful design mimic the customisable platform game, but your avatar in ModNation Racers is pretty much a SackBoy clone, a blank canvas on which you can sticker, layer, col...

  • Iron Man 2 Review

    Nothing says branded dog turd like a movie tie-in. Happy Meals are the pinnacle of this mountain of muck, but videogames are a close second. The concept of Iron Man – a man in a jet-propelled suit of armour that’s packed with fearsome weapons, a flying gun with arms, is prime videogame c...

  • Lost Planet 2 Review

    Despite its shortcomings and lukewarm response from the gaming press, the original Lost Planet showed signs of greatness that boded well for future iterations of the franchise. After all, what is there not to like about obliterating gigantic creatures the size of skyscrapers with a range of explosiv...

  • NIER Review

    There is a lot that can be said for a game that tries to cater to fans of multiple genres, and does so on its own legs. However, there’s even more triumph in a game that breaks down the genre clichés, falling into a category of itself: a great game. When looking back through the PlaySta...

  • Super Street Fighter IV Review

    Anyone who read our review of Street Fighter IV (SFIV) last February will know where this review is heading. If you didn’t, or just want to remind yourselves why we voted it our Game of The Month for February 2009, then curl yourself up into a Blanka-like ball and roll on over to our SFVI home...

  • 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Review

    For soccer fans, there’s nothing more, shall we say magical, than the World Cup tournament. It’s a time when the world dukes it out, players take off their regular team’s uniform and replace it with their home nation’s jersey, and fans come alive with glowing support. It only...

  • Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake Review

    Some of the PlayStation 3’s biggest franchises have made the transition to Sony’s handheld device in recent years. Entries like Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid, God of War, ModNation Racers and LittleBigPlanet are all coming or already available on the PSP, meaning our favorite games ...

  • Dead to Rights: Retribution Review

    A full eight years since the release of the original Dead To Rights, and the franchise is unleashed for the first time on current gen consoles. Though the original promised much, in reality it was certainly nothing to write home about. If you did happen to play that 2002 release, however, you ma...

  • 3D Dot Game Heroes Review

    There is a question that has been plaguing our minds ever since we started playing 3D Dot Game Heroes: what constitutes as homage and what is actually theft? As harsh as this may sound, after playing through the game, we cannot whole-heartedly say whether it stole all its ideas from the games of our...

  • Episodes from Liberty City Review

    Two years ago we were introduced to the grimy world encompassed in Liberty City. As far as games go, two years is a fairly substantial period of time, and many PlayStation 3 owners are likely upset it’s taken this long to get any additional content for Grand Theft Auto IV. While Xbox 360 owner...

  • Just Cause 2 Review

    Whether you’re wandering by foot across the mountainous terrains of the South East Asian island of Panau with peaks that overlook miles of lush jungle-lands and white sandy beaches, or sky-diving through the air landing in the crystal clear waters 10,000 feet below before swimming under the su...

  • Yakuza 3 Review

    There you are minding your own business, casually idling the afternoon away walking the pleasant neon-lit streets of Okinawa on the way to the local noodle bar when a gang of spiky-haired street punks chase you down an alleyway to start a fight; it’s no wonder you get a little bit annoyed. Tho...

  • Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening Review

    When Dragon Age: Origins was released last year, gamers were exposed to one of the best role-playing game entries to grace a home console Sure, it had its flaws – mostly concerning visuals and lag - but its intricate story and characters made for a one of the best RPG experiences of 2009. Play...

  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Review

    To say that the PS3 is inundated with first person shooters would an understatement of epic proportions; it's absolutely suffocated by them. With 49 games in the genre already clogging up the shelves, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 represents the latest entry into that sea of shooters hoping to set itse...

  • Lunar: Silver Star Harmony Review

    Role playing games are a dime a dozen, but a good role playing game only comes along once in a great while. It seems a lot of the classic RPGs get remade countless times, usually touting better graphics, more monsters and quests, smoother gameplay, and richer music. Lunar: The Silver Star is one suc...

  • Final Fantasy XIII Review

    With a glittering legacy that spans over 20 years it’s inevitable that a whole heap of expectation rides on the wings of every Final Fantasy game’s release. Living up to that sort of pressure and creating a game worthy of bearing the Final Fantasy name is an unenviable task, but Square E...

  • God of War III Review

    Since the God of War series launched in 2005, we’ve journeyed alongside Kratos through the depths of hell, annihilated hordes of demonic creatures in a gory clash, and defeated Ares to take his place as the new God of War. It’s a franchise based heavily on intense, fluid combat, enormous...

  • Resident Evil 5 - Desperate Escape Review

    Snapping closely at the heels of the cinematic masterpiece that is Lost in Nightmares, Capcom’s second helping of Resident Evil 5 digital goodness – dubbed Desperate Escape – reacquaints players with the familiar action-orientated antics of the franchise, ditching puzzles and explo...

  • MLB 2K10 Review

    Baseball is one of America’s oldest and most favorite pastimes. However, its translation to the videogame market has been anything but apple pies and ice cream. Sadly, capturing the essence and enormous details of baseball in a game has resulted in some decidedly weak efforts (take, for instan...

  • Heavy Rain Review

    A simple question is posed while playing Heavy Rain: How far will you go to save someone you love? But the game offers so many more questions than that little tug on emotions. How can you truly care about imaginary characters in a videogame? How can nearly every step of your gameplay experience impa...

  • Resident Evil 5 - Lost in Nightmares Review

    Resident Evil 5’s Lost in Nightmares sub-chapter is essentially a love letter from Capcom to the most die hard of RE fanatics, signed sealed and delivered with a firm stamp of nostalgic approval. Have no illusions; Lost in Nightmares is a totally disparate beast from the main adventure, replac...

  • Dante's Inferno Review

    Fighting your way through an adaptation of what is widely considered one of the greatest works of world literature is uncharted territory for a videogame. So when it was announced Visceral Games and EA were working on a game based on the poem Dante's The Divine Comedy, it's easy to see why we were a...

  • BioShock 2 Review

    Returning to Rapture is a lot like visiting Disney Land as an adult. It doesn't have that same awe-inspiring presence, the locals are still hostile and a bit tweaked, and while all the sites (and amusements?) are familiar, there's still a welcoming sense of nostalgia that makes the long lines worth ...

  • MAG Review

    One of the most overplayed and overproduced videogame genres is the first-person shooter market. We say overplayed as a substantial chunk of hardcore gamers flock to FPSs in droves, often ignoring the chance of dipping their toes in to other genres. The basic formula for the FPS has been in place fo...
