[Review] Tales of Monkey Island

July 8, 2010 | | 8 Comments

Last year the Tales of Monkey Island was released on the PC, and it’s nice to see the PS3 getting some love with one of the biggest adventure franchises of all time. The game comes very much like the Sam & Max episodic adventure series that recently hit the PSN with 5 episodes in total putting you in the boots of none other than Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate. As with most of his adventures if Guybrush isn’t searching for treasure he is off trying to save his wife from the evil clutches of the pirate LeChuck. With a great cast of supporting characters as well the many different engaging environments players are in for a treat. Anyone who has tried the previous games knows that they are in for a ride of swash buckling fun through the many different intriguing puzzles, humor, twists and turns all throughout the game.

[Review] Joe Danger

June 14, 2010 | | 4 Comments

You know you have a real winner on your hands when a game says “Attempt 72” and you haven’t gotten overly frustrated. Such was the case with the PSN title, Joe Danger. Developed by Hello Games, a team consisting of four people. It puts you in control of the washed up has-been of a stunt rider, Joe Danger. In this game, your overall goal is to bring him back to his status as a legendary stunt man on the biggest comeback tour of his life. And what a ride it is.

Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Review

June 8, 2010 | | 12 Comments

[tab:Introduction]First of all, I’ll start off by saying this is my first experience with Sam and Max (or point-and-click adventures in general). I’ve heard of the series before, but had never actually played the episodic games (which were previously available … Read More

2010 FIFA World Cup Review

June 4, 2010 | | 7 Comments

The football season is over and the World Cup is fast approaching, which can only mean one thing; it’s time for an EA Sports World Cup game. But instead of being just 32 teams battling it out in the same tournament over and over again and not much else in the form of content, EA has tried to justify the second FIFA title to be released in a year. Adding a whole host of modes including online FIFA World Cup, Captain Your County and a Story of Qualifying mode does 2010 FIFA World Cup justify a full game price tag?

[Review] Red Dead Redemption

May 24, 2010 | | 15 Comments

*Be sure to read the section under the Scorecard for bits I had forgotten to mention in the review

Red Dead Redemption is one of those games that many of us have been anticipating since even when Red Dead Revolver was released. It has definitely been a long time coming, and now that it’s finally here, many of us have been able to sit down and enjoy it. But for those on the fence, you’re probably asking questions like ’Is it worth buying?’, ’How good is the story?’, etc. Hopefully this review will answer your questions and help you decide whether a purchase would be worth it or not.

Using a setting you rarely see in video games, the Old West, it’s a much needed change of atmosphere. Of course, these days, we’ve seen other Western titles this generation in Gun (which I think deserves a sequel), Call of Juarez, etc. but those titles, while some being good, don’t quite have that level of polish we’d be expecting from a Rockstar title, let alone, being as open as Redemption claims to be. The question is, then, does Red Dead Redemption meet those standards?

ModNation Racers is a Playstation exclusive looking to do for kart racers what LittleBigPlanet did for platformers. With numerous customisations available from driver and car designs to constructing tracks, all of which can be shared online. There’s plenty on offer from ModNation Racers but is it king of the mods or just another kart game?

Yakuza 3 Review

March 25, 2010 | | 4 Comments

If Yakuza 3 is a lesson in Japanese culture then what I have learnt about Japan is that everyone likes a fight, they love baseball, fighting is pretty popular, soba = buckwheat, no one will do what they’re told until you have defeated them… Oh and there’s a severe lack of hostesses. I kid, I kid I never really noticed their absence as I had never played any of the previous Yakuza titles. But everyone does love a good fight; seriously, you can’t do anything in this game without getting into a fight. You can’t go for a walk, you can’t ask your friend to look after your clan, and you can’t even cross the street in one instance without beating someone up first. It’s a good job that the brutal brawling system works well then and apart from the way the script contrives to include a fight at every possible moment the story does flow being deep and complicated with many characters involved.

God Of War III Review

March 15, 2010 | | 9 Comments

thasdgmopjsff… Sorry, I should have picked my jaw up off the floor before I started speaking. To say this game opens in the most epic of fashions would be saying Kratos has a slight anger management issue. I have never witnessed such a grandiose intro with titans that not only fill the screen but are in fact fill the entire level and vast amount of enemies on screen at once. Epic is a word used a lot in this generation of games but GOW III has truly redefined the word and then disembowelled it.
