Quantum of Solace DS, definitely not worth your time 0

When it comes to games design, the Nintendo DS touchscreen is one of those things that you have to think hard about. Whether your game concept would actually benefit from the use of a stylus outside of navigating menus, and whether it would be a game to suit an "all stylus" method of control are just some of the questions you’ll have to ask yourself. While it’s interesting to see that Activision has strayed away from simply porting the same game released on the home consoles with Quantum of Sol...

Go for it, if you like a real arse kicking. 2

It’s not every day that you see a big game developer create the next game of a well-established franchise by going all the way back to its roots, even if that may have been twenty years ago. This is exactly the route Capcom has taken with Megaman 9, and while it might feel to some like a simple effort to make nostalgic gamers drool, the end result is a very solid game with the additional ability to draw in some new fans to a series they might not have touched otherwise.  The plot is fairly st...

It ain't no revolution... 1

Whereas some people may prefer handheld monster battling because of its portability among other things, for others the simple sprite monsters just aren’t enough. Enter Pokemon Battle Revolution, yet another console Pokemon game which allows trainers to upload their monsters to the game and see them battle it out in full 3D. This time, it couldn’t be easier, as the wireless functions of the Wii and Nintendo DS come into play and allow you to copy all of your favourites from your game up to the W...

Just solve this puzzle first... 0

I’d find it very unnerving if, upon travelling to a new town and asking a local where the nearest bathroom was, they told me to solve a puzzle of theirs first. But such is the world of Professor Layton, a point-and-click style mystery/adventure game for the DS, comprised of tricky brainteasers which the player must complete in order to progress through the game. While it’s likely that players who have picked up a brainteaser book in the past will be familiar with a lot of the puzzles here, there...

I'll train my brain elsewhere, thank-you. 0

Big Brain Academy is a cash-in on the casual market, more specifically the market that accepted Dr Kawashima's Brain Training, or Brain Age, with open arms. It features a collection of minigames advertised to train your brain, although it’s never quite certain just how you’re training as there’s no real science behind the games like there was in Brain Age. It all feels a little bit cheap, and in the end it’s probably worth your while to stay away.The game splits your training into five categorie...

It's a gun. With a FREAKING chainsaw. Just buy it. 0

Gears of War was one of the only shooters I can say I’ve thoroughly enjoyed – the over-the-shoulder camera, new cover system and a great multiplayer mode all contributing to what I felt was a truly epic (no pun intended) game. Fast forward two years and Epic has finally released the game’s sequel, which has been quoted of being “bigger, better and more badass”. While I don’t feel all of these terms are completely fitting descriptions of Gears 2, I can say that this is one sequel that shooter fan...
