Being my first foray into the virtual wrestling ring since the awful 2008 TNA iMPACT! game, and my first game from the SmackDown vs Raw series this generation (with my last being back in 2007, on the PSP), this title had a fair bit of hype in my own mind as the one that gets me back into the wrestling genre. Has it?
With the months of anticipation over, Call of Duty Black Ops is finally here. Taking a turn from their previous WW2-based Call of Duty games, this is Treyarch’s chance to prove to the world that they aren’t just the B-Team and can do better than Infinity Ward. So, do they manage it or is this one Op that should’ve stayed classified?
It’s that time of the year, and now that I’ve had ample time to get to grips with it, and with the regular hockey season just underway, it’s time to look at the latest iteration of what seems to be a sports game award-winning black hole: 22 Sports Game of the Year awards show how much oomph the EA Sports NHL franchise has. So much in fact, that it’s bodychecked 2K Sports’ latest hockey iteration into only releasing for the Wii this season. So with that said, let’s drop the […]
It’s been around for largely around 31 years, and it’s still kicking around today – the mack daddy of gaming, Space Invaders is back in 2010 and it’s a drastically different experience than it was a those years ago. Infinity Gene – released towards the end of the last year on the iPod and iPhone – saw its release on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live mid-September. I’ve played both versions, so I’ll be bundling both into this one big, comprehensive review, so you can see whether or not it’s […]
by Daniel Cabrera Released in 2008 this fusion of RPG, TPS, and RTS also features a unique and colorful art style made possible by the CANVAS engine, after two years it has spanned an anime and manga series, as well as many different series of figures by different manufacturers, and of course, it´s sequel Valkyria Chronicles 2 which was recently released for the PSP but, is it really that awesome?
With the outstanding Scott Pilgrim vs. The World out this week for XBLA, and Castle Crashers making its way over to PSN next week, it’s a fine time for great 2D beat ’em ups. But where does the long awaited, graphically slick and viscerally gory Shank fit into all this? Is it a clunker, or another fine addition to the recent beat ’em up resurgence?
Scott Pilgrim is dating Ramona Flowers – but before he can claim her as his true love, he must fight his way past Ramona’s 7 Evil Exes! Based on the cult hit comic book series and out just in time for the blockbuster movie adaptation, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is a 2D sidescroller jam packed with retro gaming throwbacks, from River City Ransom to Mega Man. Is this retro homage gaming glory or a worthless tie in?
Rockstar has a, let’s just say, uncanny knack of having most of its catalog of games highly praised. Sure, you can say that about almost any major publisher, but aside from Manhunt 2, all of Rockstar’s games have been received well by critics and gamers alike. Red Dead Redemption, sequel to Red Dead Revolver on PS2 and Xbox, will probably be no different. I say popular because it’s still early days yet, but after spending a good portion of the weekend playing it, I can’t possibly see anything else happening with […]
Little more than a year ago, the idea of a new game based upon a franchise that had suffered more than a few stinkers in the gaming world being a critical darling would be scoffed at, but Batman: Arkham Asylum took the gaming world by surprise and showed people that it could be done. War for Cybertron is the Transformer franchises’ Arkham Asylum – and while it is easy to leave the review there and call High Moon studio’s shooter an absolute gem for simply being a sucess, being the […]
Bizarre Creations latest foray into the racing genre since leaving Project Gotham Racing behind them is an attempt to hybridise two tangents that racing games have split off into: the Kart racing, combat driven gameplay of titles such as Mario Kart and Modnation Racers, with the real world locations and cars of series like PGR and Burnout. But is Blur something of a bizarre mishmash of gameplay styles best left seperated, or is an example of two great tastes that taste great together?
Modnation Racers is the second outing in the Play.Create.Share brand of games, and spiritual spin-off of LittleBigPlanet and competitor to Mario Kart. LBP proved a critical hit through its charm and use of user generated content, and Mario Kart through generations of pedigree. Can ModNation Racers live up to the legacy of LittleBigPlanet and Mario Kart, or does United Front fail to grasp onto what made the two a magical experience?
It seems odd to some that just a little over a year after their previous release of Street Fighter IV, (a game many claim single handily brought fighting games into the limelight) Capcom returns with Super Street Fighter IV. An update that promised more characters, stages, and online options. When first announced many gamers were up in arms that the new content would come in the form of a disk, rather than a download for the previous game. Capcom stated early on that “the breath of content to the game […]
Final Fantasy XIII has been one of the most anticipated titles in recent years, having been announced at E3 2006, it has been a long wait but it’s almost at an end for most of us. Warning: This review contains some story info, not really spoilers but if you don’t want to know anything about the game, I suggest you don’t read it.
Go to Hell, That was how EA and Visceral Games marketed this game and they were not joking. Dante’s Inferno is a new Action Game That will be released on the 9th and before you read on, let me say that this game is not for the faint of heart. This is HELL we are talking about, Sinners’ and the Damned rule this place! This game features many graphic images that if your not prepared for may throw you for a loop. You will see Breasts, Gore, Even the Male Genetailia :P.
Bioshock for many gamers is one of the most beloved new franchises on the block. It’s unique art style and setting encased gamers in an alternate world where an 1940’s “Utopia” was birthed under the seas. Bioshock 2 begins in the beloved city of Rapture that we all came to love in the first game. This time though you are truly taking up the reigns of a Big Daddy the Series protectors of what little innocence exists in Rapture; the Little Sisters. More specifically, you are Delta the original Big […]
