Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Review
25 June 2010
Excerpt: The Metal Gear series has had a bit of a shaky run on the PSP, starting with the bizarre Metal Gear Acid games and continuing with Portable Ops , a game that provides a MGS-lite experience that is held back by a very tedious soldier-capturing system.
Excerpt: Battlefield has always been a multiplayer focused series, though obviously with the freshest entry, Battlefield: Bad Company, effort has been spent on both the single and multiplayer components. But at least in regards to the campaign mode, it seems DICE’s old habits die hard.
Conclusion: It's taken a fair amount of time to get there, but Bad Company 2 marks the point DICE finally delivered the full Battlefield package. With a varied and engrossing single player campaign allied to a top-notch multiplayer, this is war gaming at its explosive best.
Excerpt: EA/DICE's Battlefield series is one of multiplayer gaming's top shelf franchises. When Battlefield: Bad Company was introduced to the gaming public, much attention was paid to the fact that the game would contain a fleshed-out single-player campaign along with the usual multiplayer action.
Excerpt: As video games become increasingly more realistic our expectations grow. Take Battlefield Bad Company for example. You can totally destroy the side of a building, yet you can't take the whole building down, and that makes us disappointed.
Military shooter with strong visuals, multiplayer.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is the latest in the series of Battlefield military shooters. Since you're in the midst of a futuristic war, players will encounter plenty of violence. You kill enemies using guns, grenades, rocket launchers, tanks, air strikes, and a host of other weapons.
Conclusion: Of course the big elephant in the room, if you live in the UK as I do, is the price. For god knows what reason, the fairly-reasonable $18 has been directly converted to £18, which is closer to $30 when converted and just simply isn’t worth that for what is essentially a polish of an 11-year-old...
Summary: Battlefield has promise, but hasn't delivered on that yet. The lack of modes in multiplayer is ridiculous, and I'm not sure I'd really give the game a 'must buy' recommendation until there's some variety there.
