Jump off a tall building while opening your mouth as wide as possible, and you’re likely to emit a sound that closely resembles the name of indie developer Dejobaan Games’ latest effort. How cleverly fitting, since that’s exactly what Aaaaa! is all about. This out of control base jumping simulation wins far more than the award for being one of the longest and weirdest-named games around.
AC/DC Live is the laziest title we’ve played in a long while. It’s the ultimate in barebones gaming; just eighteen songs and virtually nothing else. There’s no band involvement a la Guitar Hero: Aerosmith; there are no interviews; no documentaries… AC/DC themselves don’t even make an appearance, in person or in digital form. Fan service? Hardly.
Owner of the finest pink suit in all gamedom, Miles Edgeworth has developed a cult following as the “hold it!” to Phoenix Wright’s “objection!”. Ace Attorney Investigations turns the tables, letting us see how the other half – the prosecution – live.
In a radical move for the series, courtroom tussles are gone, but any fervent Wright-head can spot the constituent parts.

Six years ago Ace Combat 04 dropped everyone's jaw with its photorealistic airplanes, fast arcade action and ultra-detailed environments. It was a piece of technological grace that both showed what the current generation of consoles was capable of and also provided the most white-knuckle jet experience in memory. Now we have a new champion of the skies, and it's Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation.
Take everything we just mentioned - the planes, the intensity and the terrain - and
Combat Assault Horizon is like a love letter to the idea of fun. The delivery
method for said letter is to fold it into the shape of a paper F-22 Raptor,
attach jet engines, machine guns, and missiles, and then run up a hill while
making “neeeeeroouuuu” airplane noises before hurling that sucker into the
sunny blue sky. We frame it this way because Assault Horizon is unabashedly an
arcade flight game, with fancy camera tricks...
thing you need to know about Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy is that after
you clear a mission, dive-bombing into the mountains is a bad idea. Unlike most
games, that Mission Cleared screen does not grant godlike immunity, and we had
to restart more missions than we'd like to admit because we flew our F-16 into
the ocean for fun...
Ever been inside a banking F-14, trying to outmaneuver a set of incoming missiles while simultaneously keeping a bogie ahead of you in your sights? Yeah, we thought not. Well, we haven't either, but after piloting authentic jets, executing precise aerobatic attack patterns and generally blowing the hell out of everything, we can safely say this is pretty damn close to the real thing.
Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War is the sixth game in a well-respected series that's always delivered the
Like being taken outside and beaten up by a gang of enraged skinheads, Aces of the Galaxy is an outright assault on your senses of the most unwelcome variety. Like Space Harrier, Panzer Dragoon or most recently, Rez, Aces is an on-rails arcade shooter, accelerated to a speed which makes every stage a dizzying blur of enemies and lasers.
Perhaps hoping to capitalise on shops selling out of Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit, Active Life: Extreme Challenge (Family Trainer: Extreme Challenge in the UK) is a collection of ‘radical’ activities (kite surfing, skateboarding and so on) controlled by a dance mat thingy.
We are simultaneously the world's greatest and the world's worst Adrenalin Misfits players. We completely dominate every trick competition, but can barely manage to place in the more traditional races. The worst part is, we're not even sure why...
