Do you remember Juiced? The mod-heavy racing game which THQ salvaged from the wreckage of Acclaim's spectacular financial crash? You do? Brilliant. Then you'll remember that the customisation options were almost unparalleled - the choice of paint jobs, alloys and carbon-fibre wings you could bolt on to your motor was really something. But under the pearlescent exteriors lay a game that was about as joyous to handle as scalding faeces. After so much cosmetic promise Juiced fell flat on its
If ever there was a reason to reach inside the television and begin throttling, it's David Spade as Sparx the dragonfly in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning. As the cutesy sidekick in this action game, the cloying comic proves to be equal parts grating and repulsive. "Over here, mauve boy," he'll bleat at regular intervals, and his sneering, nasal tone never loses its charm because, simply, it never had any.
You'll have to suffer through Spade even as a reborn Spyro soars in this oftentimes
Yep, it's another Spyro game, and it's again on the stalwart PS2, home to many of the dragon's previous outings... both good and bad. Fortunately, unlike its messy DS counterpart, Spyro: The Eternal Night on PS2 is actually a pretty good game. But that's something of a double-edged compliment - it's just a "pretty good" game.
The Eternal Night picks up right where the previous Spyro title left off, after the young purple reptile's climactic battle with Cynder. Sadly, Sypro isn't going to be
Things aren't going well for the three Baudelaire children. They've just learnt that their parents have died, when they're shipped off to live with an evil uncle. It's not ideal.They need to come up with survival techniques to survive in a house laden with nutcases and creepy crawlies. This involves inventing weapons and gadgets that keep them out of trouble.Luckily, Baudelaire Violet is uncannily good at making gadgets out of random objects - all she needs are the correct items.

We hate to ruin a (not-so-good) ending, but the easiest way to kick off this review is with the text from the final achievement from Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal, which you receive by completing the game: “Youll probably hate yourself in the morning.” Well, that about sums it up. Thanks for doing our job, dev team.
So maybe thats not all, folks. Looney Tunes: AA is ostensibly an action-platformer featuring a wide variety of playable animated legends and levels inspired
You enter the CORNER SHOP. You take a can of full-fat COKE from the fridge when an OLD LADY leaps out. She casts B.O. but you defeat her with a sharpened carton of BANANA YOGHURT. She dies and you receive FALSE TEETH. Then you walk into the street where a CHAV attacks, with the OVER-CHARGING SHOPKEEPER. You restore your HIT POINTS with a slug of sugar and dive into combat again...Give thanks that life isn't like an RPG. Otherwise every day would be like the one above, times about twenty. But
Got any friends who refuse to stop rubbing their purchase of the new fangled PSP in your face? No? Well if you did have one a couple of years ago, Lumines was probably the game they couldnt stop yammering about. And with good reason. Its more fun then hopscotch and solitaire… combined!
Perhaps were underselling it. The heart that beats behind Lumines deceptively simple facade is a deep little puzzler thats unreasonably hard to put down. Squares resembling the vilest of Tetris pieces
