An arcade classic is reborn via Playstation Network 0

Back in the nineties the only place to play top notch racing was at neon illuminated arcades – Console racing games didn’t really start emulating the quality of arcade racers until Gran Turismo was released in 1998.  Ok some history; Arcades were buildings solely lit by the light that emanated from the gaming cabinet, where shifty characters would hang around the penny pusher machines waiting to pounce at the money that dropped under its own fruition and a place where people with question...

Great Cartoon, Terrible Game 0

Unquestionably the funniest, most subversive television show in history, The Simpsons, to date has produced far less memorable series of games. So far there have been 17 Simpsons games, and none of them have been anything to write home about. Despite this, Simpsons Wrestling is one of 2001 most highly anticipated PSOne releases, reinforcing the phenomenon that some people value the brand over quality of the product. But even with that anticipation of a new Simpsons game, simply put Simpsons wre...

Highly addictive and technically stunning 0

American football is a game of four quarters (strage that). Its rough, its' tough and only the fittest survive! Can you make it big on the gridiron? John Madden football is your chance to find out.

Once t...

Doesn't deserve the right to carry the Sensible Soccer name 0

Back in the day when games where controlled by joysticks, cds were only used in the medium of music and having a control pad with more that eight buttons on would have sounded crazy, Sensible Soccer ruled the roost when it came to football games. I can almost remember the day when I was first introduced to Sensi, a demo of Sensible Soccer 93/94 was the cover disc with amiga power, the demo featured only Germany vs. England in a 2 minute half of a match. The hours I spent playing the demo to wear...

Yes, another game that casts you as a plumber! 0

Yes, another game that casts you as a plumber, but this time there aren't any mushrooms in sight. The idea is to lay down section of popes and guide the flow of repulsive substance called Flooz. On the left hand o the screen the plumber's bag which shows the next five segments of pipe as they will appear. The most points are main by attempting to make loops the more complicated the better. Later levels include dead squares, vats and fish with the Flooz increasing in speed all the time. The oppor...

Be Persuaded 0

Bullfrog have released only fourteen games in their seventeen year career (this is from memory I think it is right), but unlike other more prolific games developers, most of Bullfrog's games have stood the test of time. The first, Populous, was a strategy game which put you in the mighty shoes of a God, playing with the lives of peasants and armies, creating religions and raising mountains out of the sea with only a click of the mouse. Something about its blatant grandiosity was utterly addictiv...
