The sphere of god 0

In a day and age where every other game seems to be a FPS, it’s an absolutely pleasure to play a game that isn’t afraid to try its hand at a different kind of game. One that not only is incredibly fun to play, but also well balanced, very approachable and best of all, brilliantly different.The game is centered around a small tribe on their journey through a forgotten but seemingly familiar land. Your goal for each ‘stage’ is to help the tribe find their way to the exit, which is a monolith looki...

A great follow up to a great game. 0

A franchise lives and dies by it's core concept, and thankfully Dead Space 2 has stuck closely enough to honour it's predecessor but has made enough advances to make this a welcome new experience.First of all let me stress that I loved the first Dead Space game. I thought that although it didn't revolutionise the genre in the way Resident Evil 4 did, it was a well made game that hit all the right notes. (Read my previous review for my full opinion) So before I even I started playing the game I h...

It's definitely a Halo game! 0

It’s clear that the Halo franchise has so much support that Bungie is able to experiment with future game choices by looking into other areas knowing that a loyal fan base will relish any more opportunities to bask in the Halo universe, in the past this as resulted in such opportunities as Halo wars as well as books and anime. Using these incentives ODST was born. Taking the spotlight away from our faceless hero, and placing it on a group of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers, we get to see the fight f...

This game isn't standing in anyones shadow 0

Each generation of consoles have brought forward some form of innovation. The consistent improvements are always graphics and capacity, but during the PS1 era we started to see CD players and eventually DVD players manage to find  New tech suit, great for when you just don't want to get wet their way on our systems. The current generation find their innovation not from hardware but software. Sure the PS3 has a blu-ray player and for some that is enough, but the area that is making the large...

A great atmospheric horror. 0

The success of the Horror genre has led to some truly scary games over the past 20 years, from Alone in the Dark to Resident Evil. However, despite maintaining the horror elements, there has been very little in the way of innovation until Resident evil 4 pulled the horror genre kicking and screaming into the 21 century from the old, but still overused, idea of stiff controls, awkward camera angles and overused clichés. Dead Space isn’t a game that offers the same innovative strides, instead it ...

I'm going deeper underground 0

Spelunky is an unusually game, but it’s a fantastic game that offers more than similar freely available games. The protagonist of this game is an unnamed Indiana Jones type who ventures underground in search of gold, gems and damsels, armed with only a bullwhip and the ability to pick up rocks and other items. There isn’t much in the way of a story, but this isn’t a game that needs a story. Along the way you meet snakes, bats, spiders, monkeys, cavemen, yetis, piranha, UFOs and more. To say tha...

F.E.A.R 2 Review 0

F.E.A.R 2 is a direct sequel to the first F.E.A.R game, but F.E.A.R 2 does a few unusual things for a sequel; you control a different character and the game starts before the first one has finished. This isn’t a bad thing though. You now get to follow a different story in the same universe whilst transferring your experiences of playing F.E.A.R into a new character. Taking place around 30 minutes before the end of F.E.A.R we see a squad of Delta force operatives trying to take Genevieve Aristid...

A downloadable delight. 0

Battlefield 1943 is a lot like Battlefield Bad Company; they both use the frostbite engine, they both have destructible environments and they are both great. The biggest differences between the two though are the little things that really make them stand apart, and as the owner of both games I can tell you that they offer enough differences to warrant owning both games. Bombing run at Wake Island Now, lets talk about Battlefield 1943. The game itself consists of 3 maps (as well as an unlockable...

Runs with a bad leg. 0

One of hardest genres that developers have failed time and time again to get right is the first person platforming. Despite a wealth of great first person shooter games on the market, developers have struggled with letting people experience other genres from the same perspective. Many have tried, some have come close, but none have truly achieved. Then Digital illusions steps up to the plate with Mirror’s edge. The game takes place in a totalitarian society, where information is a precious commo...

A year after release and it is still a great game. 0

Breaking into an already well-established market is an incredibly hard thing to do. The high barriers to enter are some of the reasons that the home console market never gets too saturated, and why in the past 20 years there have been less than 4 on the market at any one time. It is the same when it comes to software development. If the games industry is crowded with too many games in one genre, then developers that produce a game for the genre need to make sure that their game sticks its head a...

As good as it is long. 0

Wanted is a game that doesn’t conform to the traditional movie based games; it is a game that was made and released 9 months after the movie had already hit theatres, so although it was based in the same universe, it also was able to take elements from the comic book as well. The story in Wanted starts 5 hours after the end of the movie; your father is dead and the French branch of The Fraternity is in Chicago to sort out what is left of the Chicago branch. The story isn’t bad, even if it is ...

Great Mulitplater make this a must buy! 0

Battlefield is one of those games that are beloved by many PC gamers and held in such high regard that to consider putting the game on a console is blaspheme, but they rest easy when I tell you that this game is fantastic. I held off buying this game on launch day because a part of me always thought this game wouldn't be any good but boy was I wrong. The single player is great and has a fulfilling story as well as some remember able characters who exchange some witty dialogue, through out the ga...

A great Puzzle Survival Horror game. 0

First i played the demo for Penumbra: Black Plague, after completely the demo I loved it and decided that I would play the first chapter before I played black plague. All I can say is wow the game is great. There I said it! This is what a horror game should be. The basic story line is that your after your mother passes away you recieve a letter from your dead father, which leads you to greenland, once there you realise what a harsh climate you are in and take cover in a mine, which is where th...
