Review: Transformers: War for Cybertron

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.

Review: Blur

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.
