    Iron Man 2 Review

    Iron Man 2

    There's not a lot that stands out about Iron Man 2, and the experience as a whole is entirely forgettable. One of my favourite things about being a games journalist is putting... more

    NBA Rush

    A good-looking if dull endless runner that has no sense of urgency or momentum. It's 1993, and Michael Jordan's looking to switch careers - intending to... more

    Hero of Sparta Review

    Hero of Sparta

    On a mobile phone platform like the iPhone, Hero of Sparta stands out as something quite impressive, but simply porting a game like this to the PSP as a Mini isn't good enough. PSP Minis are undoubtedly a good thing and can only help give the PSP a... more

    James Cameron's Avatar The Game Review

    James Cameron's Avatar The Game

    In this pretty but basic third-person action game, in which you play a blue-skinned Na'vi hell bent on ridding the planet of Pandora of unwelcome Newcomers, waggling is both woeful and frustrating. To 3D, or not to 3D? That was James Cameron's question. Ubisoft Montreal's... more

    SHOOTER! The Official Movie Game Review

    SHOOTER! The Official Movie Game

    There are some interesting mechanics in Shooter and the potential is clear, but it can't help but be dragged into the realms of bad film tie-ins. It's no secret that in gaming terms a film tie-in generally represents a... more

    Robert Rodriguez presents Predators

    There's not much variety to be had in Predators, and you can wade through it in a couple of decent train journeys, but it keeps itself sharp enough for you to chop until it stops. Even if you were to add up the total amount of fatalities I've seen from... more

    Spider-Man: Total Mayhem Review

    Spider-Man: Total Mayhem

    The combat's a tad shallow, and things get repetitive pretty darn quick, but it's still worth the comparatively small price tag. Just. Some developers might shy away from big licenses, scared that they'll trip... more

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Review

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

    The Force Unleashed II isn't a bad game by a long stretch - just a game that's over in a flash and almost entirely devoid of any memorable moments. As far as sequels to multi-million selling titles go, Force Unleashed II is... more

    Metal Gear Solid Touch

    It’s a shame there are no stealth elements, but what is on offer is a thoroughly enjoyable on-rails shooter that utilises the iPhone's touch screen to full effect. When Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was released on the PS3 last... more

    Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

    Minigore

    Minigore's presentation is top class and the dual-stick controls work well, but we can't see the fun lasting for more than a few weeks and the odd cheap death might annoy high score junkies. Minigore is the latest "twin stick" shooter to grace the iPhone. Developer... more
