    Killzone Liberation

    Killzone: Liberation is a slightly flawed but still impressive blaster that is well worth a look. Just don't be surprised when you keep seeing the same restart screen ad infinitum. Remember the old adage about 'bringing a knife to a gunfight', well I... more

    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

    It's hard to recommend this PlayStation 3 version over the superior Xbox 360 release, but PlayStation 3 owning Marvel fans shouldn't think twice about buying Ultimate Alliance. I think most people have a favourite super hero, or at least a favourite set... more

    Spider-Man 3

    Spider-Man 3 on the DS is essentially a youngster's game, and does a very good job of providing its target audience with just the kind of action they will want. Like so many disappointing Wii games, you'd assume Peter Parker's web... more

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    If you like the idea of messing with some storm troopers to the extent that it verges on Force-fuelled torture we recommend you give The Force Unleashed a look. It's quite sad that the last action game that made us feel like a... more

    Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce Review

    Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce

    With online play, Strikeforce may well have been one of the PSP games of 2009. Without it, it's nothing more than a decent stab at making the tried and trusted Dynasty Warriors format work on the PSP. Dynasty Warriors has always been an acquired taste, a bit like Marmite. For... more

    Army of Two: The 40th Day

    Army of Two: The 40th Day is a solid, entertaining third-person shooter, best played with a friend, but it's not quite the big advancement over the original it could have been. Army of Two ended up being a bit of a disappointment on its release in March... more
