REVIEW – Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3/360)

September 2, 2009

Today I want to look at a game that has received more 10/10’s than I care to count! Who’d have thought that a game that allows you to run people over and shoot them in the face would be so highly praised both critically and commercially? I am of course referring to the greatness that is Grand Theft Auto IV!

Well, at least the cover design hasn’t been completely re-done!

Released in April of 2008 on the XBOX 360 and PS3 and selling 3.6 million units in the first day, Grand Theft Auto IV pretty much re-invented the franchise by taking away the ludicrous things that the previous games added such as jetpacks, purple dildos you can beat people up with, and driving tanks through the city streets, and brought the series back to a more down-to-earth, realistic level.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer Beta – An Inside Look

August 20, 2009

Back in June I had the chance to play the open Multiplayer Beta of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, thanks to a user over at Gametrailers, who is affiliated with Naughty Dog I’m sure.

Its nice how game developers are beginning to realize that opening their beta stages to more and more people by giving beta codes to, well, anyone that comes first, is a win-win situation. They get a broader audience to use in their testing, and the hype continues.

This might come off as a little late since the beta has ended for some time now. Nevertheless, the game won’t hit stores until October, so there’s still time!

So yeah, lets get this started.

REVIEW – Metal Slug 7 (NDS)

June 23, 2009

Though being a fun series, Metal Slug is notorious for being on consoles that weren’t very popular, including the Atomiswave and Neo-Geo. SNK Playmore eventually learnt their lesson, and ported the series to the PSP, PS2, Wii and XBOX years after their original release. They then decided to develop a completely new entry in the series, Metal Slug 7. It was released as a timed-exclusive for the DS last year, though it will supposedly be released sometime in 2010 on the XBOX Live Arcade. So, was it the right move for SNK Playmore to only release this for the DS and 360?

REVIEW – Burnout Paradise (PS3/360/PC)

June 6, 2009

Burnout Paradise is Criterion Games’ latest installment in their Burnout franchise. Now of course my expectations were ridiculously high, but mainly because the theme song is by Guns ‘N’ Roses… oh, and also because I’m a huge fan of the Burnout franchise. Apparently the game also has loads of new features, such as sandbox gameplay and new ways to play online. So did it live up to the hype surrounding it?

REVIEW – Prince of Persia: The Fallen King (NDS)

May 31, 2009

Prince of Persia: The Fallen King was released on the same day as it’s console counterpart, entitled ‘Prince of Persia’. The Fallen King is a DS-exclusive title, but almost nobody has heard of it because Ubisoft did a terrible job of advertising it. It’s certainly in the shadow of it’s console counterpart, but why? Because it’s on a handheld? Or is it because of the quality of the game itself? Read on to find out.
