This one slipped by me.
For a few years now, Team 17 have been updating and re-releasing Worms on various downloadable game services. They have always been the more successful 2D offering. The one title that really got me hooked though was there third 3D Worms game – Worms 4: Mayhem. An absolute blast in multiplayer it is an unusual but thoroughly entertaining night in with a few friends. How does Worms Ultimate Mayhem on Xbox 360 stack up? Continue reading »
I recently picked up the Black Ops branded Madcatz PrecisionAim Xbox 360 Controller and found the thumbsticks to be very slippery. They don’t feature any rubberised grip at all.
A pack of these did just the trick. Continue reading »
Dragon Age: Origins… I love you and I hate you. “Love” and “hate” are powerful words, but they are key here, as BioWare’s first fantasy foray into the next-gen range of consoles takes the familiar mold that we’ve come to expect from Canada’s finest RPG developer, and stuffs it full of the kind of mature … Continue reading »
SOCOM I’ve never played this game before?? D’you like that one… was good right? Moving swiftly along….. SOCOM Special Forces is a great game.
It’s old – not only is Resistance: Fall of Man set over sixty years ago, but having been released way, way back in the dark ages of 2006 it’s also the oldest RETROspective review we’ve done for the current crop of consoles.
The recent remake of Medal of Honor was not a title I purchased based on review scores. As an unashamed, newly-converted addict to the brilliance of Battlefield, I couldn’t resist the pull of a free Beta trial for the upcoming Battlefield 3. However, I was pleasantly surprised by a thoroughly entertaining single player campaign. Although … Continue reading »
Pick up gun. Shoot everything that moves. Rinse and repeat… It’s the standard formula for a vast swathe of first and third person shooters out there, each with their own unique little twist on an otherwise very familiar (and very profitable) formula. We’ve been following the hype around the F.E.A.R. franchise’s third instalment, and a … Continue reading »
A franchise that started way back in 1996, that spawned the world’s most evil company, Umbrella Corp, 14 sequels and 8 films has been brought kicking and screaming to Nintendo’s latest handheld, but does it live up to the recent hype?
The combination of videogame consoles and headsets has existed ever since the Sega Mega Drive landed in 1989. Bringing alongside its jaw droppingly beautiful 16-Bit graphics was full stereo sound, but only if you plugged in a set of £2.99 headphones from OurPrice. Times have changed, and the £2.99 headset now requires you to move the … Continue reading »
Pure, simple, fun. For a game that has taken 15 years, multiple court hearings and four developers to complete, Duke Nukem Forever (DNF) is a glorious throwback to classic 1990′s first person shooters, and as stated by the Duke himself, “forever takes a long time” but thankfully not much has changed.
Check out our video review of Brink Continue reading »
So after all this hype is it any cop? Or is its mere existence a crime? Ed stops his punning right now and gets down to some serious work. From the Director of The Getaway and a new studio from Australia (Team Bondi), L.A. Noire is a gritty detective story that loves film noir so … Continue reading »
Breasts and brutal combos, that’s why you bought a 3DS right?…. Its been only a few short months since the release of the 3DS and much has been said about its ability to render children blind, cause mass famine, and generally (in our office) is thought to be responsible for preventing Rapture on the 21st May 2011. No mean feat, however, there has … Continue reading »
Fans of first-person shooters are absolutely spoilt for choice this year, but with so many games now competing for your hard-earned time and money, developers are trying desperately to cram in new features, bells and whistles to make the old formula feel new again and release the next “big thing”.
If you haven’t already pre-ordered this game, do it. Do it now. So, the public Gears of War 3 BETA has been up for almost a week now and I can tell you that this game is simply amazing. Pure and simple, Epic have taken everything that was bad about the first two instalments and thrown it … Continue reading »
It feels like first-person shooters are absolutely flooding the market these days. With Medal of Honour and then Homefront failing to really make a dent in Call of Duty: Black Op‘s dominance over the market, it seems a shooter really has to do something special to stand apart. That’s where Codemasters’ tactical take on the … Continue reading »
A lot of noise was made by Sony in the build up to the release of Playstation plus last June, but like many, I was sceptical as to what I would get for my £39.99.
