I remember the day when I loved to play the Need For Speed games, but recently I will admit to finding them dull, monotonous and immediately forgettable. When I was asked to review 'The Run' I winced inwardly at the prospect of having to sit through hours and hours of racing through various boring sections of a generic world map. Surprisingly 'The Run' is the first racing game Electronic Arts have... more.

Assassins Creed has been a huge cash cow for Ubisoft over the years, backed up by massive television advertising campaigns. While I have enjoyed the games in the past, I have found them all slightly repetitive after a few hours of climbing, jumping and killing. The latest Revelations follows on from Brotherhood, adding a few new features but basically retreading the same old ground. I make no p... more.

Call Of Duty, what is there left to say that hasn't already been said? One of the most successful franchises in game history, making hundreds of millions in revenue with every release. The big question needs answered however, is MW3 just more rehashing of the series or does it deliver good value for money? For the most part MW3 plays by the rules. Meaning, the developers know what is successful... more.

Oblivion was without question one of my favourite games of all time. I dedicated months of game time to completing as many of the quests as possible and ended up mapping all the territory, just for fun. Addicted was an understatement. Skyrim has been hyped now for the last year, and it is finally upon us, but can it live up to all the expectations? It certainly won't be easy. There is no doubt ... more.

Burnout Crash! is a colourful downloadable arcade for Xbox 360 and Play Station 3. It is a famous destruction racer spin-off, with focus on the single mode from Burnout 2 and up - "Crash Mode". The rules are simple - you drive into a busy intersection and try to cause as much damage around you as possible. Cars, road fixtures, buildings, everything has to blow up. As you collect points, you can... more.

Not a great game, but you will occasionally have fun. I was waiting anxiously for Space Marine. I gave in to the hype, to the advertising, to the epic trailers, screenshots and a life-size Utramarine walking around Gamescom. I always liked the WH40K universe, with its distinct art style and technology design, but you would never find me playing the real tabletop thing. Figurines and heavy tome... more.

Every so often we hear about a first person shooter that's supposed to break away from the traditional Call of Duty and Battlefield style games that have dominated the market for the most part. Codemasters' Bodycount was aiming just for that - the name itself suggests that you're going to kill more people than Jim Jones in a Kool-Aid store. Sadly, this title is too slowly paced and unpolished to q... more.

I stumbled across a copy of Deadly Premonition while I was looking for something else in my local Game store. I picked up a copy as I was intrigued by the cover and by the fact that I’d never actually heard of it. It’s not often that video games slip past my radar, especially weird Japanese ones, which I particularly enjoy. It came out last October to little fanfare, although it did briefly... more.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is due for release this week, the first big title of Q3 and a sure sign (along with the ‘book your xmas party here! sign I saw last week) that the pre-Christmas games release stampede is starting. Developers at Eidos Montreal have been talking the game up a storm over the last two years since it was first announced, promising us everything from the ability to play lots ... more.

Diablo was one of my favourite games of all time. The overall concept and execution was ground breaking and it built up a huge cult following. Falling in the shadows was Dungeon Siege, another 'dungeon crawler' style game which while buggy was also a tremendous amount of fun. The latest title in the series, Dungeon Siege 3 was released last week and hopefully will help drive sales and satisfy the ... more.
