Could have been better, could have been worse 0

BULLETSTORM - even the name sounds like a parody of the whole violent first-person shooter craze. And in a lot of ways it is, but more than that this game embraces the absurdity of its genre and pushes it forward with its vibrant graphics, fast paced gameplay and tongue-in-cheek dialogue.Set in the distant future Bulletstorm follows Grayson Hunt as he continues his quest for revenge against his former commanding officer, Sarrano, who used him to kill innocent civilians under the guise of nationa...

Lives up to the legacy of the series 0

MAKING games scary is hard to do at the best of times and it’s next to impossible to do it on a handheld console, which by its very nature is designed to be played anywhere and not just in a living room with the lights turned off. So it must be said that Resident Evil Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS is, despite its best efforts, not scary. But that’s not really a big issue because the overall experience is brilliant and a lot of fun to play, so you’ll forgive it for not even giving you one good ...

Worth the very long wait 0

IT seems only fitting that a game that deals with such dark subject matter as Alan Wake was stuck in development hell for the past five or so years. In 2005 it was going to come out on the PC and “next-generation consoles”, then in 2007 it was going only to PC and Xbox 360 as an open-world game. Now, in 2010, Alan Wake is a linear (albeit with a wide path to follow) third-person action game and is available only on the Xbox 360. Thankfully all of that extra time and effort has not been wasted an...

Looks great, but lacks substance 0

THE original Crysis was a game I could only admire from afar. It looked incredible but as I wanted to play it the fact that it was a showcase game for high-end computers meant I was never going to. Crysis 2 is the best of both worlds in that regard - it's still an amazing looking game, but it's available on home consoles so I don't have to break the bank and buy a new computer. Too bad it's just so generic and lacking in so many key areas.Taking place in the near-ish future Crysis 2 puts you in ...

Perfect mix of reality and video gameness 0

YEARS of broken promises, false starts and almost no solid facts about what L.A. Noire actually was gave the impression that this was a title doomed to fall into the pits of development hell. Thankfully Australian developer Team Bondi pulled it together, despite what appears to have been a nightmarish workplace, and created one of the best games I’ve played all year.Set in 1940s Los Angeles, you take on the role of Cole Phelps, a war hero struggling to come to terms with the things he saw and di...

Worth the pain 0

  I CAN still recall buying the original Dead Rising, playing it for about two days, hating it, and taking it back to where I bought it to get The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion instead. I was so annoyed at how broken that game was because of how much promise it had. Looking back, I can now see that Dead Rising wasn’t broken, it was just … different. I was trying to do it all – save all the survivors of the zombie outbreak, kill all the psychopaths and solve all the mysteries before the time quickly...

Bayonetta: a gamer's game 0

 IN my time as a gamer I’ve been a bald space marine, a rogue government agent and an underworld crime figure about a thousand times. But until Bayonetta I’d never played as a witch who looks like a sexy librarian crossed with a stripper, armed with a gun in each hand and two more strapped to each of her ridiculously long legs. As you’ve no doubt gathered the titular star of Bayonetta is a unique creation that is at first confronting, but soon proves to be a powerful independent female characte...
