  • South Park: The Stick of Truth Review - a side-splitting RPG with real character

    Thanks to the apropos talent of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, South Park: The Stick Of Truth delivers familiar tongue-in-cheek, satirical humour and crude language that has helped make the animated series such a huge hit. Yet underneath its close-to-the-bone jibes at Jews, anal-pro...

  • Spelunky Review: the toughest platformer ever made?

    Are you brave enough to hunt for treasure in caves where death shadows your every step, and any wrong move sees your bones join those of other careless adventurers? Are you strong enough to battle the undead, giant creatures and other fiends armed only with a whip and your wits? If the answer is yes...

  • Spider-Man 3 Review

    Oh Spidey, it’s certainly been a while. Last time we hung out in your universe you were cel-shaded and looked like a comic book. Well now you’ve got a fresh coat of paint and you’re back for more web-slinging fun… right? Kind of? Developed by Treyarch, Spider-Man 3 places...

  • Spider-Man: Edge of Time Review

    Surrounded in his slick wit, the Amazing Spider-Man has slung his way into the hearts of millions of fans with his clever puns and carefree exuberance for crime fighting.

  • Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Review

    Over the past week we’ve been so busy covering the release of PlayStation Move that we found ourselves a bit behind on reviews, though we’re now attempting to rectify that with a title that certainly deserves some time in the limelight; Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, a new game from A...

  • Splatterhouse Review

    Handjob dungeon: now that sounds like a great place to visit, doesn’t it? Sadly, it isn’t. It turns out that Handjob Dungeon isn’t a sex den where full-blooded males’ dreams come true, but it’s actually just a play on words and an indication of the type of playground wi...

  • 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...

  • Sports Champions Review

    If we learned anything from the launch of Wii, we know that a good sports-based game will go a long way in the motion controller realm. Sports Champions is more than just Sony’s answer to Wii Sports, it serves as an introduction to Move’s precise tracking capabilities and new owners of t...

  • Stacking Review

    If you think you’ve got money problems, spare a thought for little Charlie Blackmore and his family of chimney sweeps. Unlike Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins, the Blackmores don’t have a happy-go-lucky, dance across the rooftop attitude. In fact, they’re totally miserable, struggling...

  • Star Trek Conquest Review

    Have you ever wondered what would happen if the Star Trek universe became a complete bedlam of warring alien races? Ever wanted to pit Romulans against the Federation, or loose the Klingon war machine on the shrewd Ferengi? Well, Bethesda Softworks latest Star Trek title gives you the chance to see ...

  • Starhawk Review

    Starhawk stands a chance of being the new cornerstone of Sony’s PlayStation 3 online clout. It’s not hard to imagine Sony executives talking about how their console has the strongest online community thanks to games like Starhawk. But whether that’s true will ultimately boil do...

  • Start the Party Review

    Start the Party is a launch game for Sony’s PlayStation Move controller, and one of the first to utilize both the controller and the PlayStation Eye camera. Technically, all games require both— with the Eye being required to track the Move controller — but unlike other games, Start...

  • Stealth Inc. A Clone In The Dark Review: death is inevitable in Curve's thought-provoking platformer

    Stealth Inc. A Clone In The Dark doesn't quite have the same ring to it as Stealth Bastard, but Curve Studio’s trade-in of the original eye-catching name for a rather dull sounding play on Infogrames’ once popular survival horror title, certainly hasn’t affected the enjoyable mix o...

  • SteamWorld Dig Review: an addictive trip to the bottom of the world

    When I first dove into SteamWorld Dig: A Fistfull of Dirt, I was expecting to play another Minecraft or Spelunker clone. And, although the comparison is easy to make, I'm pleased to report that SteamWorld Dig differentiates itself in the way that I hoped it would. Developed by indie Studio Image ...

  • Stick it to The Man Review: a surreal, crazy, twisted, brilliant platform puzzler

    So, last night my life took a very weird turn. It started when a blow to my cranium gave me psychic powers. Then things got worse as I was framed for murder, and it all came to a head when I had to escape from the cops disguised as an opera singer. Now, if you're confused by my bizarre shenanigans, ...

  • Stormrise Review

    With Creative Assembly, the developer behind the much lauded PC real-time strategy game Total War, attempting to take on the unenviable task of forging an RTS title on console that effectively embraces and maximizes to good effect the limited controls of a joypad, we had high hopes for Stormrise. Yo...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Street Fighter X Tekken Review

    It seems that by now, it doesn't need to be said that Capcom is atop the fighting game genre. Now thriving, the genre was revived, so to speak, earlier this generation with the release of Street Fighter 4. However, prior to said game’s release, there was a noticeable lull in the genre compared...

  • Strength of the Sword 3 review: an ambitious title from indie dev Ivent

    Strength of the Sword 3, an ambitious title created by indie development Ivent Games, strikes an interesting middle ground between the fighting mechanics found in God of War and the backbreaking difficulty of Dark Souls.
