Silent Hill: Homecoming Review

Silent Hill has always been renowned for its psychological horror situations, putting the player in control of an ordinary citizen in an extraordinary situation and pushing the tension to the brink. This formula is what set it apart from other titles in the survival-horror genre, and while it still retains a similar look and feel, Read More

Perfect Dark XBLA Review

There’s one thing you need to know before you purchase Perfect Dark, it’s strictly for the fans. If you weren’t in love with it 10 years ago, or if you never played it and don’t know what all the fuss is about, I’m not going to try and convince you otherwise. That said, if you Read More

Naughty Bear Review

”What the heck am I doing?” I couldn’t help but mutter that to myself constantly after 20 minutes of Naughty Bear. If I wasn’t reviewing the game, I would have ran then and there, but as it turns out I continued to the point where I was ready to smash it with a hammer. Yes Read More

Modern Warfare 2: Stimulus Package Review

Much like that nice little pay packet that Mr. Sheen injected into our bank accounts a little while back, Infinity Ward’s own stimulus package for Modern Warfare 2 refueled one of the most successful games of all time with a much-needed new map pack, albeit at a horrendous price point of 1200 Microsoft Points. Horrendous Read More

Mirror’s Edge Review

From the moment it was announced, Mirror’s Edge looked ambitious. In-game videos showed a unique and sterile environment with original gameplay and a fascinating story. The title would eventually go on to “wow” critics at E3 and EA’s promotional campaign increased the game’s unique look. Developer DICE – more known for its Battlefield games – Read More

Lips: Number One Hits Review

Lips: Number One Hits tries to do something its predecessor ultimately failed to do: give gamers a genuine karaoke experience with plenty of great tracks to sing along to. While it still has some of the issues that plagued the original, Number One Hits is a step in the right direction for this XBOX 360 Read More

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game Review

Quite frankly licensed games suck. Sure, there’re a few exceptions to that rule, but even during this heat wave (43 at the time of writing) if someone offered me the chance to sit in a freezer playing nothing but licensed games, or sit in a room hot enough to boil a fox, I wouldn’t have Read More

Godfather II Review

The Godfather is renowned as being one of the greatest and most beloved movie franchises in the world. EA had their work cut out for them with the release of The Godfather in 2006 and expectations were high for such an important franchise. Fortunately, EA delivered a decent experience. In 2009 we get another offering, Read More

Ghostbusters Review

Ghostbusters has to be one of the most recognizable franchises in the world. Ever since the first movie graced our screens back in 1984, its ageless humour and witty premise have possessed the minds of millions of people who grew up loving the 80s. Its ability to hold up to present-day comedies is something so Read More

Dead to Rights Retribution Review

Dead to Rights Retribution was a strange development choice by Namco and Volatile Games. It’s being marketed as a “re-imagining” of the Dead to Rights series, based on the same events but with overhauled gameplay. After a four year hiatus cop Jack Slate and his faithful husky Shadow are back to takedown some bad guys. Read More
