    Compared to the previous game, Skate 3 is an improvement and if you're a Tony Hawk fanatic, I still suggest you check out this game because the attention to detail in this game is quite good, from sweet skating manoeuvres to graphics that look quite realistic.

    Here’s the thing: it’s not for everybody. Every major game design decision is a double-edged sword – cleaving a path for novelty and free-form fun on one side, and slashing down potential subscribers with the other.

    Even though there are a few frustrating moments in the game, the pros easily outweigh the cons and Wet succeeds being a decent third person action adventure game.

    At the end of the day, Valkyria Chronicles is an interesting RPG tactics title that has quite an innovative movement and control system which is thoroughly enjoyable and at times frustrating. As the tactics are quite diverse, you can mix and match what you do on the battle.

    Dead or Alive 5 provides some well balanced fighting mechanics that ensures endless hours of fun on your PlayStation 3 as you pummel the absolutely living daylights out of AI controlled opponents and online opponents. Thankfully it doesn't take itself too seriously which goes in its favour of one of the most entertaining fighting franchises available.

    Just Cause 2 is a thoroughly entertaining title that surpasses its predecessor and creates a very fun and open-ended game that virtually lets you do anything with the objects, vehicles and environments.

    Cogs can best be described as kind of cyber punk style meets Leonardo Da vinci. Looks simple enough at first, but you soon find there is some real brain benders involved.

    Overall, Mercury Hg is an engaging and fun game that will give you countless replay value and help entertain you and kill time. It's clever premise and unique use of the PS3's limited motion controls integrate well with the gameplay and help immerse the player.

    As with the original game, I thoroughly enjoyed the Undead Nightmare Pack and with the inclusion of zombies, this add-on is definitely very enjoyable experience that I would happily recommend to all lovers of the Red Dead Redemption series.

    In this world of professional racing simulations and the like, it’s refreshing to play a game like Sonic & SEGA’s All-Stars Racing that puts the “fun” back into racing, without all the seriousness.

    In the end, I enjoyed Conduit 2 but my only drawback was the game was over before I knew it. Even so, this is the best the Nintendo Wii has to offer in quite some time and if you're needing your first person shooter fix than this is the game to get. It may not break the mould in terms of originality but when it comes to controls and gameplay, Conduit 2 is very sturdy.

    At the end of the day, The Sims 3 may seem like more of the same old, however it does offer the gamer a uniquely almost fully interactive and virtual experience.

    Combined with beat ‘em up gameplay and hundreds of different items to use against the hordes, the series’ best psycopath bosses and mall setting and a ton of endings and secrets, Dead Rising still holds up today for both newcomers to the franchise and returning fans like me indulging in some gory nostalgia.

    Ultimately TW: Warhammer is a deep game with plenty to keep the fan of the genre committed. The learning curve is steep, but will prove rewarding once climbed.

    A lot of effort went into creating the content for the game and it is really impressive. I wish there was more room to make more of your own deductions, but that isn’t the nature of Orwell. After playing the first three episodes, I am hooked and cannot wait to play the next two. It’s simple but fun with unexpected twists along the way.
