    The shooting elements have been watered down to accomodate MMO players, and the persistance has been watered down to accomodate FPS gamers. High Rez have attempted to make so many compromises, they just seem to have fallen short accross the board.

    Whilst it would be easy to dismiss XIII outright for such foibles, it’d also be unfair. There is a good game in here, challenging, difficult and when it all goes right quite fulfilling but it remains a game that can only really be recommended to whose who already dabbled in the original XIII Century and are looking to continue where that game left off.

    It's true that this game is a gem in its genre - you won't find a better hotel management simulator without a great deal of searching - but I'm not saying this is a perfect game with no room for improvement.

    All in all, there are better sports games and better fantasy games out there, and the fact that there aren’t many “fantasy-sports” games is probably all that will save Blood Bowl from being completely overlooked.

    It’s forty-plus hours of top-notch combat, incredible voice-acting, emotional provocation, stunning graphics and exhilarating gameplay of a standard that simply hasn’t been achieved before as a complete package.

    While the game may alienate some players, anyone interested in the Capcom back-catalogue or indeed Japanese animation would do well to seek this game out.

    MAG
    From its solid controls, crisp, user-friendly menus and huge array of customization options to its emphasis towards player progression and large scale teamwork, MAG might just become the serious contender to the genre heavyweights that Zipper and SCEA hoped it would be.

    An unfortunate miss-fire from what appears to be a genuinely bright and talented new developer.

    Vancouver 2010 isn’t a bad game, what little it does, it does very well, but what we have here is a skeletal frame, lacking even the slightest morsel of gristle with which to fill up our fun bellies.

    The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces may well be short, but that doesn’t stop it from being the greatest and most electrifying flight sim on Wii. And for that reason, it deserves your attention.

    It’s perhaps fitting that Bayonetta should be released on the first launch day of 2010 because not only does it raise the bar for action games for the rest of the year to come it is already, without exaggeration, a firm contender for game of the year.

    There's something here for stealth fans, the puzzlers amongst us and those that like a good laugh, but the patience involved in moving from one level to another may have the casual gamer reaching for a title that provides more instant gratification.

    Alien Breed Evolution is a blast from the past, and for all of its graphical splendour and next gen licks of paint, it still feels ever so slightly dated.

    Despite the slight stumble with the nightmare sequences, where you feel just a few tweaks would have made player experience match developer intentions, the only real issue with Shattered Memories is its incredibly short length.

    In the end, there’s nothing particularly remarkable about the last of the Tales of Monkey Island, but, like the finest of the four chapters before it, Rise of the Pirate God stands as a faithful recreation of a world and a cast of characters many players have longed to return to.

    Given the wealth of cheap games on the go currently it’s difficult to see how Magnetis is supposed to stand out amongst the giants of the field. Rather it’s simply a poor second runner that might provide a few minutes of entertainment better spent elsewhere.

    Saying whether Rogue Trooper: Quartz Zone Massacre is worth picking up is tough, as while I undoubtedly had fun with the well executed controls, which utilise the best aspects of the Wiimote and nunchuck to their full potential, the game just doesn't have that overall polish that is needed in such a competitive genre.

    Altitude's simple premise hides behind a deceptively difficult game, but one that's easily learned and enjoyable to engage in. Although there's plenty of content here, more might have been better, but what is here does last, just so long as it's taken in the right doses.

    It’s a rare luxury that not many films have, and if you, like I did, feel compelled to play the game after seeing the film then I can happily tell you that I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with what is on offer.

    To be frank, Tekken 6 features the most complete and rewarding fighting experience on PSP, and is a must buy for any fan of the genre.

    Fortix is driven by a sound gaming mechanic that’s almost difficult to criticise. “What you see is what you get”, “Does exactly as it says on the tin” etc, what is easy to criticise though, is the difficulty that gets much too intense for a game designed for 5 – minute bursts, as well as a visual presentation that’s just downright ugly. Combine this with a total lack of clever features and we have a game that’s just a borderline stinker.

    It’s really hard to criticise a game that is actually very good. But the principle stands. It is frankly immoral to demand money for something that has simply been regurgitated. Thus Serious Sam HD is a reprehensible example of commercial greed, and for that deserves our eternal scorn.

    There's allot I like about the game, it looks pleasing to the eye, sound and music is of a consistently high standard and there are some features that prevent the whole thing from feeling like a tired retread of other games before it. As a hybrid however it occasionally missteps and fails to fully succeed in blending two different types of genre's into one cohesive whole.

    Blast Off isn’t a fully-fledged game, but it never aimed to be one in the first place – it is mini, after all. Small, cute, cheap, addictive, and great fun. At this kind of price tag, deprive yourself of your portion of fries at McDonalds this week and Blast Off into the unknown instead.

    Needless to say, Assassin’s Creed II is a game full of intrigue and mystery that will keep you engrossed from the awkward opening to the epic finale.

    Left 4 Dead 2 is a near perfect slice of gaming heaven, set in gaming hell.

    LittleBigPlanet isn’t in any way a shoddy port; it offers an experience that is on a par with – and in some ways exceeds – the full console experience.
