As grown men, it's particularly hard to review games like this. Obviously, EA Playground isn't meant for anyone over 8, and any childless adult seen purchasing it should probably be reported immediately to local authorities. No one in our office was jumping over themselves to brush away Halo 3 and The Orange Box to collect stickers and marbles. But somebody had to review it. And guess what? It surprised
Wii Fit’s been sitting high in the charts for months. It seems that Nintendo’s Wii is in people’s consciousness as much for being a fitness tool as it is for gaming.
So it’s hardly surprising that a Wii Fit contender has stepped onto the scene. What is surprising, however, is that it delivers a far more compelling and well-rounded package than Nintendo’s own personal trainer.
It's not easy to deliver the first sports game on a brand new gaming system. EA Sports has strived to bring FIFA to the PlayStation Vita in time for you to take your footy fever on the road. How does it stack up to the console versions? Find out...
Someone at EA has taken the concepts of Panini stickers, Top Trumps, David Beckham’s footy school and a Question of Sport and somehow moulded them into this frankly bizarre DS title. The game’s remit is essentially to improve your football knowledge and, in an outstanding piece of timing, ex-Chelsea gaffer Luiz Felipe Scolari is on hand to help you along the way.
The UFC has so dominated mixed martial arts (MMA) in both the real and virtual sports world that it isn’t surprising to see a challenger to their dominance, even less surprising that it’s from EA Sports, the biggest sports game maker around. THQ’s UFC games set quite a high standard of quality, and for most fans the UFC is MMA, just like the NFL is football for some. EA Sports MMA had a lot to prove and pushes itself to be the best, but does it surpass the current champ?
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but man, its amazing Sonys lawyer types arent on the horn over this one. Eagle Eye Golf emulates the Hot Shots series right down to the font and colors used in the logo. You almost feel guilty even playing
They might be hilarious when sped up and accompanied by the Benny Hill tune, but the early days of flight were dull. At least they are now, as we have fighter jets.
Giant ants shoot orange acid from their butts, but explode into green goop when blasted with a grenade. 30-story-tall robots with plasma cannons for arms explode in fireballs so big, they obscure your entire field of vision. You can bring down an entire skyscraper with a single, well-aimed rocket, and then climb into the helicopter that used to be on its roof to make it easier to pump a mutant alien dinosaur full of missiles without being torched by its flame
How did the transition to the PS Vita work out? Find out more in our review...
God, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon totally would’ve gotten a 10, if only it were a better game… Does that make any sense? No, it’s not my first time reviewing. It’s just that, on sheer awesome principle, Earth Defense Force is exactly what I want out of a shooter. For me, it’s a sublime, damn near perfect interactive experience. However, it’d be ridiculously ballsy to score it up to the echelons of a Gears of War 2 or Halo 3...
