Should you be excited by the return of the Helghast in Killzone: Shadow Fall? Find out in our review...
Kinect’s pack-in title immediately scores big points for not being another been-there-flailed-that sports entry. By now most fans of motion-controlled gaming have already bowled, tossed, hit, kicked, and paddled their way through more fake sports than they can shake an invisible racket at. So, Microsoft was smart to sell Kinect Sports as a stand-alone entry and give gamers a fresh reason to get off the couch with the bundled Kinect Adventures. Additionally, the family-friendly title serves as the perfect intro to the new sci-fi-like tech, teaching early adopters how to use the hardware through simple, fun challenges...
are a resident of Southern California, chances are you don’t get to visit the
Magic Kingdom often, but now the happiest place on earth is accessible through
the wonders of Kinect. The motion-control game Disneyland Adventures offers an
open-world, Disney-inspired, minigame bonanza that does well with the entire
Disneyland presentation, characters, and tone, but fails to deliver in terms of
gameplay and fun...
Perhaps the most important factor to consider when reviewing a game like this is, who is this game really for, and what will they get out of it? We’d bet that the audience for Kinect Joy Ride encompasses two groups: the most obvious is the casual-to-non gamer jumping on to the Kinect hype train, but the other group, we believe, is gamers who love games enough to find the idea of a new way to play a racing game enticing. There is something inherently virtual-reality like and even imagination-come-to-life about holding the air as if it were a steering wheel and driving a car on screen...
Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure may look like just another licensed
family-friendly game but you’ll find that there’s something special here to
keep kids of all ages coming back…
If you already own a Wii or PlayStation Move, you’re likely all too familiar with the wide world of motion-controlled sports. Maybe you’re not one of those crazies who impaled their 52” LCD with a Wii-mote trying to bowl a strike, but you’ve probably participated in plenty of arm-flailing archery, tennis, golf, boxing, and even not-quite-sports such as tossing Frisbees at Wii puppies. Despite the oversaturation of gamepad-dismissing athletics, Microsoft is getting into the game with Kinect Sports...
comes another compilation of sports related minigames for another motion
control peripheral on another of our beloved game consoles. By now it might be
hard to tell the difference between games like Wii Sports, Sports Champions,
and Kinect Sports since, as of this point, each respective system has covered
all of their bases in terms of minigames in the major sporting events. We’ve
all played tennis, baseball, golf, and even skied down some slopes on the Wii
and PS3, but now it’s Kinect’s turn. Does Kinect Sports: Season Two’s
controller-free gestures make for a better experience than the competitors, or
is it just the same old walk down a far too familiar, sports equipment laden
It’s not the lightsaber
game we were hoping for, but it comes darn close. Plus, the rest of it is
actually pretty fun…
Borrowing a page from PlayStation Move’s EyePet, Microsoft has launched the achingly adorable Kinectimals alongside the new motion-sensing peripheral. To avoid suffocating in this entry’s all-consuming cuteness during extended play sessions, we had to continually remind ourselves to play it from a parent’s perspective. You see, the game’s as sweet as that bit of un-dissolved hot chocolate at the bottom of your cocoa mug and as cute as a button sewn onto a cuddly teddy bear sitting in a giant pink beanbag chair...
It's easy to accuse film licences of being soulless sub-average dribble, but that's because, usually, it's true. You wouldn't believe the amount of generic third-person action/adventures we have to sift through each month and, with the exception of truly original titles like The Thing and Indiana Jones, tie-ins are basically merchandise. They're designed to sit alongside mugs and lunch boxes and hoover up as much of your hard-earned as possible. That's the unspeakable truth. Deal with it.We'd
