Halo Reach

Halo Reach

Xbox 360, FPS, 9/10 High quality, fun game. There was a short space scene which I think they pulled off quite well, if just to show-case the incredible space-scene graphics. I don’t like the continuing trend of sad endings 🙁 .

House of the Dead: Overkill

House of the Dead: Overkill

Wii, Duck hunt (Light gun), 6/10 When you buy this game you know what you’re going to get. And you get it. And yes, they went overkill on everything, especially the gore and the clichs and the bad language. The story is entertaining if you like Shaun of the Dead. I like the gun shop […]

Gears of War 2

Gears of War 2

XBox360,3rdPS,7/10 – December 2008 I played the game in co-operative mode with Kix – we did have fun but the verdict is: Not even as good as Halo 1. The best new feature of the game was “Crawl Mode” – When you “die”, you don’t die you hit the ground and get a few seconds […]

Warioware

Wii,Microgame,5/10 – March 2007 This crazy game is perfectly suited for getting to know the Wii. It is designed around thinking of all the different ways the Wiimote can be used. Each level is split into 5 second long microgames which begin with asking you hold the Wiimote in a certain way. The main challenge […]

Wii Sports

Wii,Sports,7/10 – April 2007 Wii Sports comes bundled with the Wii console – It has Tennis, Bowling, Boxing, Baseball and Golf. It is completely amazing how intuitive it is to use the Wiimote to play the game. You really don’t need to explain the controls to a new-comer, whether they are 6 or 56. I’m […]

Donkey Konga

Game Cube,Bongo Rythm,8/10 – February 2007 An excellent game where you have to drum to the beat of on-screen music. A yellow dot means left, a red dot means right, a pink dot means both and a splash mark means clap. There’s 3 difficulty levels which have the same songs but different beat speeds. It’s […]

Mario Kart DS

DS,Battle Racing,9/10 – January 2006 This is my first WIFI game. What this means is I can play 3 other REAL people from anywhere in my house. They might be in America, Europe, Mongolia, it doesn’t matter, what matters is that they are a so much more worthy and fun opponent than a AI simulation. […]

TimeSplitters – Future Perfect

XBox,FPS,6/10 – September 2005 Good simple FPS fun. I say simple because you can’t jump, not a bad thing but a bit old-fashioned. There is a entertaining selection of characters (ninja monkey anyone?) including brilliant undead creatures to mess around with. On the character selection screen, each character performs a move when they are selected […]

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

DS,Platform,5/10 – July 2005 This game is a classic platform beat-em-up. Same old formula, mass-produced so it comes out at the same time as the films. But it is quite well done, with a good use of buttons, a bit of character progression, interesting moves and a nice level of difficulty. It also has a […]

Yoshi: Touch&Go

DS,Puzzle,5/10 – June 2005 The control mechanism relies purely on the stylus and so demonstrates how quirky and different the DS is from other handhelds. It’s a fresh and original game (if-by-game-I-mean two mini games). The first game see’s baby Mario falling from the sky on the top screen and you have to draw a […]
