We don’t get it. We realise that there are people out there who like horse racing, and we realise that there are even people out there who like the G1 Jockey series of games.
Summer is coming. But that gives you time to invest in the Game of Thrones RPG. Is it worth the trip through Westeros? Our review will give you the lowdown...
If you're lucky enough to get a PS3 on launch day and you've got a burning hack-and-slash itch, Genji: Days of the Blade might look like a pretty good way to scratch it. It's stylish and pretty, and its Onimusha-style samurai-on-demon action is fast and visceral. But while its dazzling visuals and animation are a decent showcase for what the PS3 can do, don't be fooled - scratch the surface, and there's very little here that qualifies as next-gen.
Set in ancient Japan during the legendary
Jumping out of a plane at 5000 feet and having your face flap about like a bulldog in a wind tunnel isn’t an activity many would ever take up in real life. As a game though, it’s OK. In Skydiving’s Formation mode you tilt and twist the Sixaxis to float your parachutist into one formation after another, with his three teammates alongside him. It’s a surprisingly good concept, even if the spinning is a bit hard thanks
God of War Collection – comprising the original PS2 games, repackaged on one handy blu-ray disc and remastered in HD – looks like a PlayStation 2.5 game. It may be a purely cosmetic overhaul – astutely handled by Bluepoint Games, the developer behind PSN’s Blast Factor – but Kratos’ PS2 adventures have lost little of their brutal substance.
Kratos isn’t charming. He’s not interested in saving the world, rescuing a princess or really doing anything at all that doesn’t serve his immediate goals of getting revenge and tearing apart anyone that stands in his way. He’s a one-note character with a one-note aspiration, and yet somehow this bald, grunting terror of ancient Greece is the headliner of the PS3’s longest-awaited and most hotly anticipated
The God of War's past isn't as memorable or enjoyable as his future...
question, the two God of War games released on PSP are among the very best titles
ever to appear on the handheld. That’s not just according to us, either; God of
War: Chains of Olympus still stands as the highest-rated PSP game of all time
and while Ghost of Sparta was almost certainly hurt by its release less than a
year after God of War III, its 86 Metascore is still nothing to sneeze at. So
it’s kind of a foregone conclusion that the God of War Origins Collection is
something worth playing, whether you never got around to the games on PSP or
just want to play through them again in their definitive form...
The PS3 finally has its first free-roaming, Grand Theft Auto-style car-crime game, and it's... The Godfather. Again. It's been a full year since the multiplatform mob drama first arrived in game form, and the appearance of The Godfather: The Don's Edition on PS3 means it's officially hit every single platform except the DS and mobile phones (although we're willing to bet The Godfather: Touch Madness and The Godfather: Horrible Mobile Edition are already in the works, somehow).
The bar has been set extremely high in the world of shooters
this holiday season with blockbuster titles we're sure the majority of gamers
plan on adding to their collection. Among this stiff competition comes
Goldeneye 007: Reloaded, the remake of the classic, this time in HD...
