Feels like only half a game 0

This is a game is a game I've been looking forward to since I first heard about it back in 2008. It was a survival-horror genre game with a few slight twists that showed a lot of potential, so when I heard it was coming out on XBLA, I admit I was a little deflated, especially given the development troubles. I Am Alive has been in development for over 4 years, essentially because Ubisoft out-sourced it to Darkworks (a dev company famous for making absolutely nothing of note), who apparently did s...

Some things should just stay Vaporware 0

This is the moment that I thought would never come. I must admit, I was quite skeptical that this game would ever show up - even as I put the disc in my 360, I couldn't believe that this was actually the Duke Nukem Forever that I was promised nearly 15 years ago. Regardless of your interest in DNF, or even regardless what you think of the game, the fact that it's actually been completed is an amazing achievement, and everyone at Gearbox should be proud of what they've achieved. Yet despite this,...

Sword & Awesome-ry 0

I love trawling through the iTunes store looking for games to become addicted to. I also hate trawling through the iTunes store looking for games to become addicted to. Maybe it's me, but there's a lot of shit that's exactly the same - everything lately seems to fall under a few categories: "Oh cool, this is just like Angry Birds" or "Oh cool, this is just like Canabalt" or "Oh cool, this is just like Fruit Ninja". And in-part, it's hard to blame iPhone devs; the attention span for iPhone games ...

Thor: God Of Blunder 0

So here we are again, eh? That old "video-game to movie tie-in" scenario. Everyone's usually pretty quick to bash this type of game - and quite rightly so. There's been some shockers over the years, but then again, there's also been games like Batman: Arkham Asylum. Much like B:AA, the new Thor game is kind of a movie tie-in, but only in the way that it has the same characters. Unfortunately though, that's about all the comparisons that I can make with these two games. Let me make it simple, her...

Promises too much, delivers too little 0

For those that don't know, this is a reboot, or a "re-imagining", or "re-we-cannot-be-bothered-coming-up-with-a-new-IP-so-here-is-a-lazy-remake" or any other phrase you want to use. I remember playing the original Splatterhouse back in 1988 and even then, the big attraction was how gory the game was. Despite the crappy late-80s quality arcade graphics, the game was still scary as hell to play. Now here we are, 20 years later, a new Splatterhouse game, that still seems to be promoting it with the...

Multiplayer madness! 0

Raskulls is an action puzzle platformer, which was originally slated for a DS release, but the increasing tech demands meant it was changed early on to be a Xbox Live Arcade release.The single-player story revolves around a bunch of characters who have, well, they have skulls for head. One day a ship full of evil Pirats (because they're actual rats) crashes into their land, and to get off and sailing again, they need a new fuel source. They discover that a great fuel source is called the "Shiny ...

FINALLY, a music game for hiphop-heads 0

No matter what your taste in music, most of the music rhythm games these days have your needs attended to - except if you're into hip-hop and rap. Some might argue that titles like Singstar has the odd rap song here and there, but these are generally just your generic karaoke classics, but if you've got a real love of hiphop, you're pretty much forgotten about ... Until now. Def Jam have taken a step away from their fighting games to fill the gap with their hiphop music game, with the self-expla...

Great debut into the MMA fighting genre 0

UFC Undisputed's series has been around for a few years now, so it's good to see EA step into the ring (pun intended) to create an MMA game. And for their first effort, it's a damn solid title. The game itself is fairly simple and straight forward and not unlike a lot of other realistic fighting games. There's your basic exhibition mode, but the focus is on the career mode and online multiplayer.If you've played any of the Fight Night boxing series, then you won't be totally unfamiliar with the ...

There are bad games, there are terrible games, then there's this 0

Being a man in his 30s, I remember with great fondness nights spent with both family and friends playing Monopoly, but the board-game variety. Sure, most of the games ended with someone screaming out expletives and flipping the board, but it was fun nontheless.There's been a few different iterations over the years to try and recapture the board game in digital form and now EA have tried it again with Monopoly Streets. There've been many board-games that have made the conversion from board-game t...

This is what boxing games SHOULD be 0

When Fight Night Round 3 came to the 360, it really showed exactly what the 360 was capable of, and built a further step on an already established series. Then Round 4 came out, and was generally well received, once again building on the legacy that EA was starting when it comes to making a great boxing title. You could argue that a lot of the other sporting games merely have an updated roster and a new slap of paint on it, so it's easy to fall into the assumption that the same can be said for ...

Finally, a game that realises what stupid-fun wrestling is! 0

Let me just clear one thing up: I love wrestling video games, I have done for years and years and I've loved the sports entertainment it's based on for even longer, but I swear if I have to play through the same Raw VS Smackdown game again, I'm going to give myself a Stone Cold Stunner. Luckily, WWE All Stars is not the same Raw Vs. Smackdown game. THQ have given their wrestling series the NBA Jam make-over, and let me tell you, it's much better for it. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Raw Vs. Smac...

Don't think of this as "GTA, but with more Asian dudes" 0

This is actually the first Yakuza game I've ever played, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. In the back of my mind, I thought "this is going to be just like Grand Theft Auto, but with Japanese people, right?" Well, no, not quite.If you're like me and have never played a Yakuza game before, luckily, to catch you up, Yakuza 4 has a "Reminisce" mode, which essentially allows you to play all the cut-scenes from the first three games. This is terrific for those of you who have never played it - w...
