KidzPLAY PS3 Wireless Gamepad

Monday, November 25th, 2013

It’s not curtains for the PS3 yet. With its strong lineup of titles and refined form-factor it’s still as viable a console choice as any other- and the many die-hard console fans turning to the PS4 will see it become even more reasonably priced over the next year as its popularity begins to wind down. […]

Smash ‘n’ Survive PSN Review

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

With Twisted Metal back on the scene and promising buckets of vehicular depravity there has been something of a rush to market with copycat titles seeking to capitalise on its popularity. Smash ‘n’ Survive is one such game from fledgling studio Version2 Games. Version2 Games was born out of a simulator development company, Zen Technologies […]

SoulCalibur V review (PS3)

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

Review by John Cranston Welcome back to the stage of history, a time when combat was civilised and men, women and monsters fought each other with swords and sticks, not their bare fists. With this new instalment, developers Project Soul have done much with SoulCalibur V - available now for PS3 and Xbox 360 - to ensure it […]

Dungeon Defenders PS3 Reviewed

Monday, January 9th, 2012

It’s no secret among gamers that some of the greatest titles around come from some of the most unlikely places. I need not mention Minecraft, but I will. And if you want to get PS3-specific, then you can’t deny that Warhawk was an absolutely cracking downloadable PS3 title in its day. Stepping in with more […]

Rayman Origins PS3 Review

Monday, November 28th, 2011

I’ve been whining, moaning and complaining about the influx of Raving Rabbid related trash which seems to be sullying Rayman’s good name, so it seems only fitting that I should pounce upon a grassroots Rayman title like a… err… gaming pouncey tiger thing. Rayman Origins is that title, and within about 10 minutes of firing […]

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken PS3 review

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

The glory days of the side-scrolling shooter are over, but that doesn’t stop some determined games developers from bringing back the 2D with a little 21st century flair. These days we have the benefit of 2.5d, controllers with more buttons than you can shake a pointy stick at, and HD televisions which, frankly, I have […]

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine – Xbox 360 review

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Review by John Cranston “In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war” is the strap-line that describes life in the 41st millennium. Humanity, having expanded across the galaxy, faces destruction not only from within, but also against nightmarish and brutal aliens. In Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, a third person shooter developed […]

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron – Xbox 360 review

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Review by Johnus Maximus What happens when you’re part of a cabal of rebellious angels who try to defy god’s will and set up shop on Earth, creating a perverse tower of falsely-evolved humans? You get to face one of gods most kickass, dedicated scribes – Enoch – that’s what. El Shaddai: Ascension of the […]

LA Noire – Xbox 360 review

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

The year is 1947, the rising mood of optimism in post-WW2 America and the glitz and glamour of Hollywood can barely conceal the dark, criminal underworld gnawing at the moral fabric of society. Cole Phelps, a decorated ex-US Marine, is trying to make a name for himself among the crime-fighters of the LAPD, looking to […]

Motorstorm Apocalypse Review

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

I’ve never been a huge fan of racing sims, favouring instead the arcade or novelty alternates of which there are no shortage. Amongst these favourites are Mario Kart, Destruction Derby and 1nsane. Motorstorm has always been another, although I’ve never really gone much further than constantly replaying the demo until Apocalypse turned up. Motorstorm ranks […]
