    PlayStation Move Heroes Review

    PlayStation Move Heroes

    With its dodgy narrative, interchangeable characters and distressing lack of variation, PlayStation Move Heroes does little more than sully the name of otherwise respectable characters. Of all the theoretical lovelies physicists have conceived, wormholes are the... more

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 the Videogame Review

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 the Videogame

    Harry Potter could clearly be turned into a good video game but Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 isn't that game. I'm sure someone thought a Potter-themed Gears of War clone sounded great at... more

    The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn The Game Review

    The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn The Game

    The Adventures of Tintin is a disappointment but perhaps my expectations should have been lower in the first place. I'm not sure why I expected something good to come from Ubisoft's The... more

    Rabbids 3D Review

    Rabbids 3D

    Rabbids 3D is an enjoyable 2D platformer, but like much of the 3DS' launch line-up it doesn't offer anything wholly original or outstanding. The Rabbids are a funny bunch. That is to say they're actually amusing, not... more

    Ghost Trick Review

    Ghost Trick

    Ghost Trick is well worth the price of admission, but sadly the game lets itself down with its overall simplicity and the disappointment of its crucial final act. Designing a video game around the most tired of all narrative crutches - an... more

    Beyond Good & Evil HD Review

    Beyond Good & Evil

    If you passed on the opportunity the first time round, now is a great time to find out what you missed. Find yourself a blender. Grab a copy of Ocarina of Time, Mario 64 and Metal... more

    LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Review

    LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean

    Pirates isn't quite as whiz-bang as LEGO Star Wars III and feels quite formulaic at times, but there's no denying it has charm and widespread appeal. The latest LEGO video game, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, takes the now... more

    Alice: Madness Returns Review

    Alice: Madness Returns

    If you miss the classic 3D platformer and like games with a heavy dose of surrealism, you could do a lot worse than give Alice: Madness Returns a shot. I'm not sure I should like Alice: Madness Returns as much as I do. Spicy... more

    Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One Review

    Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One

    All 4 One feels like it's stuck somewhere in No Man's Land. Fans of the series will feel a little letdown, while everyone else will probably prefer a LEGO title. I'm not really sure who asked for the Ratchet & Clank series to focus on... more

    Stacking Review

    Stacking

    Its voice might be weaker than Schafer's work but Stacking is one of few games with its own visual identity. For those of you clamouring for a game that lets you live out your dream of... more

    Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP

    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review

    LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7

    Thanks to the strength of its stories, its fat pack of content and its irresistible charm, even those initially resistant to the prospect of another three terms at Hogwarts are likely to be won over. In the interests of saving everyone some time, I'd like you to answer the... more

    Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection Review

    Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection

    Invest in each world - in the castle and Yorda, and the Forbidden Lands and Agro - and you'll be rewarded with an experience that will stay with you for a very long time. Back when I was at university, I tackled the subject of emotional attachment... more
