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 – 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 – Ridge Racer 7 (PS3)

May 28, 2009

Ridge Racer 7 is a PS3 game released way back in 2006 when the system was first launched. It’s almost embarrassing that there’s been so many sequels made. After reviewing Mirrors Edge which I found new and innovative, I was disappointed to find out that Ridge Racer 7 is neither of those things. But does that mean the game is bad?

REVIEW – Mirrors Edge (PS3, 360, PC)

May 6, 2009

mirrorsedgecover

Mirrors Edge is a first person running game on the PS3, 360 and PC. It was developed by DICE who are famous for making the Battlefield series. Mirrors Edge is one of the few original games to be released in recent years, instead of the usual bunch of FPS’s we’ve become used to. So, is being different from the rest of the crowd payed off for DICE?

REVIEW – WipEout HD (PS3)

April 28, 2009

WipEout HD is a Combat Racing game exclusive to the Playstation Network. It’s pretty much like all of the other WipEout games, except this time it’s in High Definition, hence the name “WipEout HD”. But is this game all show, yet no go? Indeed, that was quite a lame pun. BUT THE QUESTION STILL STANDS.
