Girl Fight

Total Xbox
18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Your first reaction to seeing a Girl Fight review is probably “uh, that game came out?” As it seems like it’s been in development forever, the second response might be “what took so long?” We certainly have no idea, because Girl Fight feels like a 3D fighter from the early aughts: it tries to put its own twist on the mechanics of genre greats, but fails to understand what made those predecessors fun.
  • Pros: + Special ability customization is a nice touch.
  • Cons: ? When will dubstep game music go away forever?

Shift 2 Unleashed Review

PlayDevil
26 April 2011
  • Summary: " Shift 2 Unleashed " is a really inconsistent game that troubles me. Some races I want to give the game a 10; it can be a resounding triumph that simulates what being in an actual race would be like. In others, when it looks rubbish, or you get punted out on the last corner after racing for ages, you want to give it a 1.
