Demon’s Souls was an anomaly, a thoroughly modern 3D game whose mechanics and philosophy were plucked wholesale from the 8-bit era: unforgivingly brutal difficulty, a focus on repetitive attack patterns, and absolutely no hand-holding whatsoever. While all of these things are true of Dark Souls as well, it’s billed as a “spiritual successor” and not a sequel for good reason – in many ways, this is a wildly different experience...
Void (noun) – a completely empty space. Yeah, that about sums it up for us. As hard as we peered into Dark Void we struggled to see a shred of originality, or a spark of excitement that lifted the game above anything other than beige mediocrity. In a world of Modern Warfare and Gears of War, this game is a bit of a non-entity.
In the years since his first brush with the demonic entity known as The Darkness, Jackie Estacado has regained control, suppressed the monster and become head of his own crime family. Of course, nothing good ever lasts for long...
According to biblical end-times prophecies – or at least, to Darksiders’ stylized version of them – there’s an uneasy truce that exists between Heaven and Hell, and all that’s keeping it in place are the legendary Seven Seals.
Death comes in the sequel to 2007’s Darksiders as players take control of the second of the Four Horsemen on a quest to redeem his fallen brother. Find out how Darksiders II compares in our full review…
The free-roaming space simulation genre has never really taken off on modern consoles. There was the Wing Commander series… but that’s about it. So immediately, Darkstar One has something going for it, and is the first of its kind on 360. You are the lamentably-named Kayron Jarvis, space pilot and owner of the Darkstar One, a high-tech ship built with alien technology. Your father died in mysterious circumstances during a mission, and you’ve left your training at flight school to hunt down the saboteurs who caused his death...
Life, reckoned Lord Attenborough in Jurassic Park, finds a way. It’s a maxim which holds true for Darwinia+’s little computer people who have grown complete virtual lives within a computer simulation, only to be pushed to the brink of extinction by a computer virus.
Why should you care about Daytona USA? Firstly, it’s by Yu Suzuki and AM#2, creators of Virtua Fighter, OutRun and Shenmue. It’s also the highest-grossing arcade game of all time. Fact. Being so ace and so popular, you'd think it would be a top priority to bring it to home consoles in a decent state. Well, you're looking at the FOURTH attempt to do so, after two mis-steps on Saturn and a great-but-different version on Dreamcast. But this PSN/XBLA version is finally a conversion of the coin-op classic it was meant to be played – and it's incredible.
