After recently popping up all over the place - thanks to a few odd cameos and numerous sporty spin-offs - the Mario gang has invaded yet another franchise; Konamis Dance Dance Revolution
The revolution is far from over, it seems. For a franchise that took forever to reach our shores, DDR has become one of the most prolific game series in North America, hitting every platform under the sun and getting a generation weaned on videogames up out of their chairs and jumping around like
This is a dull BMX game, ruined by a fiddly control system and bad collision detection. Its got tricks, races and large, free-roaming environments, but its just so flaky. Its a shame, as the presentation is decent enough, with some nice looking menus, and there arent exactly loads of BMX games out there. But with Tony Hawk already doing a decent job on PSP, why would anyone go for this more awkward two-wheeled
Okay, were just going to lay it out for you: Daxter is an awesome game. And the thing that makes Daxter so awesome, the thing that sets it apart from other, similar PSP games, is that it succeeds in capturing much of what made the Jak games so great while simultaneously being perfectly tailored for the PSP.
The Jak games have always had great characters coupled with tried-and-true platform-hopping gameplay (and a few weapons thrown in for good measure). Daxter has all of these things, but -

Nobody is going to want to swap heads with Fred, so fans of gore and macabre humour will be happy to know, our Fred is content to steal heads by yanking them off the shoulders of enemies. There are eight different craniums which you can switch between at will, each granting unique abilities once worn to better deal with certain enemy types, objects and solve puzzles.
For instance, the default jar head allows Fred to charge up a special meter and turn invisible for a short amount
Despite looking soft, warm and expensive, girls are secretly very violent. All fluttering eyelashes, teasing necklines and fruit-smelling hair - but so much as think of commenting on their figure, and there'll be a fist against your throat before you can say 'doghouse'. Dead Or Alive Ultimate is a tribute to that lady-violence; this being the ultimate in the Dead Or Alive games series, all dedicated to the allure of busty girls hurting each other.DOAU is a two-disc compilation, and a spanky one
That’s not how a woman’s breasts are supposed to move. That was our first thought upon loading Dead or Alive: Paradise. They don’t so much bounce as fight hard to get away from each other like two angry badgers in a sack.
You know that game where you run around and hit things repeatedly? It's the same one with floating platforms, simple combos and a camera that almost gets it - ringing any bells yet? Oh wait, that's practically every third-person run-and-jump game made in the last eight or nine years, and even though it's a marked improvement over the original, Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil still falls squarely in the "pretty OK" department.
Problems with the last game, like a crap camera and total lack of a
First, the bad news: if you're looking for the same immersive plot that helped make rapper-filled smackfest Def Jam: Fight for NY compelling, you won't find it in Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover. Not only is The Takeover a side story (or maybe a prequel - it's unclear) to Fight for NY, but the narrative unfolds exclusively through text messages and old-style static cutscenes. And it doesn't really go anywhere interesting until near the end.
So forget the story. The story is stupid,
In terms of core values, core plot and core play, Invisible War is the direct heir to Deus Ex. Set 20 years on from the original and after a worldwide collapse, global society is getting back on its feet. You play a nanotech-modified trainee at something called 'The Tarsus Academy'.
Shortly after the opening of the game, you find yourself flying the nest and trying to work out what's actually going on in the world. Conspiracy and control are the two major plot threads.
