    Sniper: Ghost Warrior Review

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior

    A frightening lack of originality, uninspired objectives and a shedload of technical issues make Sniper one of the worst shooters this generation. I consider myself to be a happy person; I'm healthy, outrageously attractive... more

    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. If there's one thing I can safely predict was missing from the development... more

    The Simpsons Arcade Review

    The Simpsons Arcade

    The Simpsons Arcade is good fun, but it's short-lived in the extreme. While £2.99 might not seem much, other App Store games offer far better value for money. The Simpsons Arcade is the very definition of a pick up and play video game.... 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

    Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

    Magnetic Shaving Derby

    Magnetic Shaving Derby is a charming, silly, completely unessential purchase that's quite nice to have. I don't know how long I've spent wishing for a game where you have to... 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

    Crazy Taxi Review

    Crazy Taxi

    Crazy Taxi for XBLA and PSN loses more than it gains, and only keeps a light grip on the quirks that were part of its original charm. SEGA's port of the arcade title Crazy Taxi came about in 2000 during the... more

    Alice in Wonderland Review

    Alice in Wonderland

    There's nothing ground breaking about Alice's adventure in Wonderland on the DS, but it's hard not to be taken in by the charming game world and cast of likeable characters. The Tim Burton directed Alice in Wonderland movie has divided critics all... more

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 Review

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11

    Tiger 11 still plays a fine game of golf, but it might not be enough to clear the rough. As a series, Tiger Woods tends to increment with gentle putts rather than... more

    Star Wars: Battle for Hoth Review

    Star Wars: Battle for Hoth

    Star Wars fans will drop the cash on it regardless, but there’s enough here to satisfy the urges of serious tower defence players too. A quick history lesson for those who flunked Star Wars school: during the... more

    Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Review

    Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

    A few control issues bringing the overall quality of the product down, but that doesn't mean Guardian of Light isn't worth a look. It's quite remarkable that Crystal Dynamics has been able to create a game... more

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Review

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

    Sonic 4 does a fantastic job of recreating the retro Sonic experience that defined many a childhood, but ironically this could be considered its biggest shortcoming. The title screen sets the precedent. Sonic poses behind a familiar looking... more

    The Sims 3 Review

    The Sims 3

    The franchise has successfully managed to spread itself across multiple platforms, but it seems as though the 3DS takes more away from it than it adds. It's a beautiful day over at the VideoGamer.com office. The sun is shining,... more

    RAGE: Mutant Bash TV Review

    RAGE: Mutant Bash TV

    Rage might well be short, shallow, and shoddy in the control department, but it's still well worth the price of admission. With Rage HD, John Carmack has rolled up his sleeves, placed a huge bicep on... more

    Driver Review

    Driver

    Driver struggles at times to work here as well as it did on a games console, but it's still an excellent port that has managed to retain the majority of what made it so much fun back in the day. I've got fond memories of Driver on the original PlayStation. Before GTA... more

    Ronnie O'Sullivan's Snooker Review

    Ronnie O'Sullivan's Snooker

    At its current reduced price of only 59p Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker is an absolute steal. If you're a fan of the green baize, you're going to lap this up. While snooker isn't nearly as popular as it was during its heyday of the 80s... more

    Football Manager Handheld 2010

    It's not perfect and for some might be too expensive, but if you enjoy trying to take your team to league and cup glory, hours and hours of fun (or misery) are to be had here. How much depth do you want from Football Manager on the iPhone? It's a... more

    Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge

    Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge is more of an average 2-disc edition than a deluxe Criterion version. Monkey Island 2 is one of the greatest games of all time: if there were a... more

    Osmos Review

    Osmos

    A very reasonable £1.79 will get you 72 levels split across two game modes - odyssey and arcade - which is more than several hours worth of 'zoned out' gameplay. Let's put video games to one side for a minute and talk psychology, in... more

    Labyrinth 2
