Excerpt: Crysis, the first one, was an odd game in a way. Well, odd in storyline buildup that is. You’re fighting your way through the jungle, besting hordes of Koreans and aliens, and in the end you blow a gigantic alien vehicle back to its maker.
Excerpt: The idea of a Tekken 6 PSP port seemed uninteresting at first, but when word got out that it'd be very similar to the home console versions, I had to check it out. Fighting games do often wind up very well suited to a portable system, as the quick bouts and short-attention-span action are perfect...
Flawed But Fun Single- and Multiplayer Make For a Great Overall Package
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: Square off against North Koreans and hostile aliens in a new side-story campaign
Graphics: Don't be fooled, the game's amazing graphics still push your rig to the max. Cutscenes also look great, but the later, ''emotional'' moments are spoiled by overacting and poor direction
Sound: In case...
Conclusion: Rock Band: Unplugged is a great departure for the series on to the portable scene. With 41 songs on disc, great controls, downloadable songs and an extensive World Tour mode there are a lot of reasons to come back to Unplugged again and again.
Excerpt: As we enter one of the most crammed release windows the video game industry has ever seen it's easy to get carried away and focus on the main headline grabbers. We know Gears 2, Resistance 2, Fallout 3, LittleBigPlanet, Far Cry 2, Mirror's Edge and Prince of Persia are going to be massive games, but...
Excerpt: CRYTEK is well known for making games that focus heavily on beautifully realised tropical landscapes and big-balled protaganists. Crysis Warhead is no exception to this pattern. This pseudo-sequel to 2007’s Crysis promises to deliver more action than Ross Kemp versus Vinnie Jones.
Conclusion: Though the games are remastered in HD, I wouldn’t have noticed at first. They look as good as I remember them being, nothing more or less. However, while the in-game graphics have been redone (cutscenes are in the original, but they were always in a moving picture, comic book style, so it doesn’t...
Summary: Whatever else it may have been, Crysis was a blast when it got out of its own way and allowed players to creatively abuse their nanosuit-granted super powers to dominate anything in their path. This standalone expansion aims to focus in on that aspect of the gameplay, and it largely succeeds.
Excerpt: If PC gaming is more than a casual thing for you, there invariably comes a title which reminds you that your system is outdated. Back in the early- to mid-90s this was often an Origin game, like Ultima VII or Strike Commander .
