Rock Band 3 Review 0

Ever the innovator in the rhythm game genre, Harmonix- the folks behind Frequency, Amplitude, the original Guitar Hero titles and, of course, the Rock Band franchise- are back with their biggest and boldest title yet. But with the genre in steep decline, it’s entirely possible that Rock Band 3 will be Harmonix’s swan song. If that’s true, at least they’re going out with a hell of a bang.The biggest step forward in plastic living room rock since the original Rock Band, the third main title in the...

Rock Band Unplugged Review 0

Rock Band: Unplugged is not the game you might be expecting. Instead of recreating the classic console multiplayer experience on the handheld, Harmonix intriguingly decided to get back to their roots with what is essentially a homage to their own cult hits, Amplitude and Frequency. It works surprisingly well, yet you may be left wanting after playing.The core elements of the now standard Guitar Hero/ Rock band formula remain- hit the coloured gems which race down the screen in beat to the music....

Patapon 2 Review 0

If you own a PSP, you should own Patapon 2. If you don’t own a PSP, you should start considering one. Patapon 2 is that good. The incredibly cutesy, challenging and addictive rhythm/action/puzzle title will have you hooked from start to finish and should be in any self respecting gamer’s library.The Patapon series sees you controlling your own army of the titular Patapons. You act as their deity, relaying battle commands to them through a war drum, with each of the 4 PlayStation face buttons act...

Age of Zombies Review 0

Age of Zombies is your standard top-down, 2D horde shooter. You play as Barry Steakfries, the ultimate homage to Hollywood’s action heroes such as Stallone and Arnie. The game’s main adventure sees Barry travel through time to fight the zombie horde and its psychotic creator. At first glance the game seems like an appropriately named generic zombie shooter, right? Yawn, move along?This would be true if not for the fact that the game is very conscious of itself- it knows that its subject matter h...

Mario Kart Wii Review 0

 Mario Kart has recently become one of Nintendo’s main franchises- while it has always held a place in the heart of the hardcore gamer, the DS version of the game has become one of Nintendo’s famous blue ocean titles. With the company’s recent shift to servicing the casual market it’s to be expected that the more traditional games would be slightly gimped, but Mario Kart Wii is still a huge disappointment.The main problem with the latest iteration of the series is that it stinks of laziness. The...

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Review 0

If you mentioned the phrase “modern warfare” to a PC gamer 5 years ago, it is likely only one title would spring to mind. It sure as hell wasn’t Call of Duty either.  Battlefield 2 is widely regarded as one of the best, if not the best, first person online shooter ever made.  Over 100,000 players are usually still online every day, half a decade after the game’s release. While the subsequent game in the franchise- Battlefield 2142- improved many of the series’ mechanics, it never met the same cr...

WipEout HD Review 0

Buy wipEout HD. You shouldn’t be reading this review to judge as to whether or not you should, since it should already be on you PS3’s hard drive. You’re merely reading this to revel in the fact that you bought this console generation’s best downloadable title and giggle with glee whilst washing your skin with its liquid awesomeness.   WipEout HD is the jewel in Studio Liverpool’s crown- a gaming achievement other developers should look up to, admire and aspire to surpass. It is the racing game ...

Little Big Planet Review 0

For the longest time, PS3 owners have been developing an inferiority complex. Having bought the most expensive, highest powered and arguably the best value current-gen console on the market, they have been faced with the simple fact that the amount of games that it can play exclusively is pitiful and the cross platform titles are almost always inferior to the 360 versions. Having lost GTA4’s exclusivity and the fact that MGS4’s launch seems like a distant memory, PS3 gamers have been looking des...

Lego Rock Band Review 0

After the labour of love that was The Beatles: Rock Band, Lego Rock Band looks like a bit of a quick, easy cash-in. But writing this instalment of the Rock Band series off would be doing it a disservice, as it improves on the base game with a few interesting new ideas.First, let’s get the obvious out of the way- yes, this is a Lego game. All of the usual Rock Band 2 art (such as the main menu octopus) as well as the note tracks, characters and virtual environments have been Lego-fied for your en...

inFamous Review 0

 Superhero games are a mixed bunch. Some are completely awesome and feel amazing to play- take a bow, Spiderman 2- but most are complete trash which are only worthy of landfill. Suckerpunch hopes to buck this trend with their new title infamous, but without a popular super hero and by only releasing the game on a single platform have they dashed their hopes for success? My immediate reaction is no- inFamous is a fun, polished title which gives plenty of bang to the buck. On the flip side of the...

Heavy Rain Review 0

In an industry bursting at the seams from obscure genres (take a bow, Rogue-Likes) it can be slightly depressing when a game feels it’s necessary to create another of its own. However, often these risk-taking developers strike gold and Heavy Rain is one of these cases. It is also one of those cases which is ridiculously hard to review without spoiling the story. I won’t reveal any of it here, only that while it stumbles upon the occasional plot hole and misses out large chunks, the game spins a ...

Battlefield 1943 Review 0

Battlefield 1942 was a landmark in multiplayer gaming- supporting up to 64 players on huge, well designed maps and a multitude of vehicles including planes, boats and tanks. It was so popular in fact that it is still played by many to this day. 7 years later, EA hopes that by just recycling 3 maps, reducing the player count to 24 and halving the number of soldier classes it can produce another gem. Can a lower price tag justify these cuts, or does this World War 2 shooter feel as stale as all th...

The Beatles: Rock Band Review 0

The fab four have done the insane and are releasing their music in a game before the expected outlets such as iTunes. Has Apple Corp’s gamble on the creators of the Rock Band/ Guitar Hero franchises, Harmonix, paid off, or has it left our plastic guitars weeping?The Beatles: Rock Band is a title which knows its audience. From the outset it pulls out all of the stops to ensure that Beatle fanatics are pleased and treats the band with respect, all while somehow creating a game that is a fantastica...
