Game Review: Sumo Battle (PC)

Who wouldn’t want to play a game where you play as a Sumo Wrestler and you only have to press one button? The premise is great but it’s also its limitation too. Sumo Battle places you and up to three friends or AI in a small sumo ring above water and charges you to push […]

Game Review: Jumping Line Plus (PC)

Abstract and minimalist, Jumping Line Plus is an extension from a mobile game that’s made its way to Desura and has toyed at my brain for a while. The whole thing is so simple it’s quite a sham really. You are a line that will constantly jump. You control with your mouse exactly where the line […]

Game Review: Super Amazing Wagon Adventure (PC)

Crude is fun sometimes! Super Amazing Wagon Adventure takes everything that retro pixel graphics and gameplay lovers want and places it into a zany completely randomised endless trek to the ends of the world. The premise is simple. Your wagon has three family members – each with four life hearts. You can move your wagon […]

Game Review – Snayke (PC)

  Snayke is a wonderful throw back to the years where the Nokia phone game swept the mobile gaming world by storm. Taking your small blocky snake and moving it round to eat more block, each block you eat grows your snake and thus your score. Snayke takes the idea to a few new places, […]

Avoid – Quick Look / Review (PC)

Avoid is a game of perception and dexterity. The simple premise see’s you as a green block trapped inside a square mass. Increasing waves of yellow blocks fly across the playing field and you must dodge them. In this dodging game, Avoid has one extra trick up its sleeve and that’s the ability to squeeze […]

Game Review: Bollywood Wannabe (PC)

Bollywood Wannabe takes the Rhythm Action genre and gives is a Bangra shake up… and how fantastic the shake up is! My love of Rhythm Action games stretches so far back, I’m a moth to a flame for them but Bollywood Wannabe is one of most refreshing Rhythm games to come out for ages. Taking […]

Game Review: Beem (PC)

Beem is a light and mirror puzzler game that slowly drip feeds its game mechanics to you over its games length. The game draws its strength from its simplistic premise and ease of control and is a pleasure to play from start to end. Your gameplay consists of turning mirrors to reflect a beam of […]

Game Review: Sonic & Sega Allstars Racing Transformed (PS3)

Sonic’s first kart outing was a massive surprise. It was slick, beautiful, competitive and quite frankly the definitive racer for fun family four player action so far this gen. Then suddenly we had LittleBigPlanet Karting, F1 Race Stars and then Sonic Transformed all pop out within 7 days. It’s been a karting dream but before […]

Game Review: F1 Race Stars (PS3)

An F1 Karting game?! Whatever next! F1 Race Stars is a new concept and the first pure arcade type driving experience for the F1 franchise (aside from the PS1 F1 Arcade in 2000) but this takes things completely into the fun karting world. Think Mario Kart. Think weapons and powerups. Think 4 player split screen! […]

Game Review: JAM (PS3)

JAM is a music game that tries its absolute best to avoid doing anything similar to other music games in the genre. As a result its become very much a purists music game but also one that if it takes you, you’ll be spending a lot of time playing. JAM is made for the Rock […]

Game Review: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (PS3)

Tekken 6 felt unrealised for me. I’ve always been a huge fan of the Tekken series but number six was my second least favourite only beating four. I’m so pleased to announce things are very much back to the top of their game with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – possibly my new favourite fighter of […]

Game Review: F1 2012 (PS3)

Creating a game for such a split market is no easy task and you have to feel for Codemasters – they’ll be slammed for making an ingenious genre defining sim , they’ll be slammed for making an arcade gem. F1 2012, like the previous outings falls firmly in the middle, although it does feel this […]

Game Review: Project Diva Extend Dreamy Theatre (PS3)

Possibly one of the biggest travesties in gaming this generation is the strange way that Project Diva has been given its PS3 releases. You always have to have the original PSP game and then effectively buy the game again for the Dreamy Theatre version. Sadly, with Extend, none of this changes. If you’re here though […]
