    Transformers: Dark of the Moon Review

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon

    It's a shame that Transformers: Dark of the Moon exhibits so many fundamental flaws in its design, as from time to time you get a fleeting vision of what High Moon Studios is trying to create. The life of a developer in charge of a movie tie-in is fraught with peril,... more

    LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars Review

    LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

    LEGO Star Wars III grips your hand and never quite trusts you enough to let go, and unfortunately means it never develops beyond the by-the-numbers status it starts off with. TT Games has that Pixar-like ability to make kids entertainment that even... more

    Star Fox 64 3D Review

    Star Fox 64 3D

    Star Fox 64 3D is no masterpiece. All the same, it's one of the best-looking games on the platform, and a respectful restoration that will please the fans. As I mentioned (well, ranted) fairly recently, Star Wars is dead to me.... more
