We take a look at a game that waggled before waggle without waggle - Die by the Sword!
Throwback Thursday - Die by the Sword (1998)
More than halfway through the season Telltale's spin on Game of Thrones is really beginning to bear its teeth!
Game of Thrones Episode 3: The Sword in the Darkness
It's arguably the darkest outing in the Zelda series, and one that changes the formula in unique ways. Read our review!
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Review
Review by pdstaffrd @ 26th July, 2011
Runespell is a welcome addition as a unique puzzle title to a market swimming with knock-offs, and is yet another example of how independent developers are one-upping the dominant publishers. Combing two previously uncombined genres results in a challenging, strategic and addictive experience, which makes up for any storytelling shortcomings.

Review by Grizz @ 20th July, 2011
As you're shootin' and lootin' your way through this isometric action RPG your exploits will be dynamically regaled through the kind of pervasive voice-over system that’s typically reserved for sports games. Addiction to this fantasy world sets in quick as your post-apocalyptic plight as 'The Kid' is slowly told via the whiskey-smooth, gunslinger drawl of 'The Stranger'...

Le Tour is the sort of monotony that shouldn’t come near a videogame, but the developers have banged together a decent, if not flawed title that I did enjoy. While the strategy and ideas shine, the awkward execution leaves you alienated and confused as to how the whole thing is supposed to work...

The basic crux is, as Garcia Hotspur - demon hunter, your girlfriend has been kidnapped by the boss of the underworld, Fleming (yep, even more jokes). She’s not just any videogame kidnapee though, as she ends up haunting you throughout your journey to actually save her. She blames you over and over again for allowing it to happen, which is an obvious inside dig at games like Mario and Zelda...

Ocarina of Time’s poise and pacing were utterly perfect, and that hasn’t changed at all for this iteration, despite the passage of time since release being some 12+ years (it’s not quite 13) - a testament to the timelessness of the game...

For a story that talks of falling into lunacy, it’s interesting that the game’s quality matches the mind of its antagonist; Alice is a cracked mirror; you can see what it could have been, but you’re stuck with what it is...

F.E.A.R. 3 Review (Score: 7.9/10)
PC
Review by nachosjustice @ 29th June, 2011
It may not be as wholly engaging or enticing in its storytelling as previous F.E.A.R. outings, but I’m still keen to jump back on the action cloud of a game that’s infused with a horror lining.

Child of Eden Review (Score: 8.5/10)
XBOX360
Review by SnornL @ 27th June, 2011
Child of Eden is both thematically and mechanically near-identical to Rez. The game takes place within Eden, the digital system that was the setting of the first game. Here, it’s presented as a depersonalised archive of all humanity’s knowledge - a kind of futuristic Internet, though devoid of trolls and cat photos...

Dungeon Siege III Review (Score: 8.0/10)

Review by KostaAndreadis @ 22nd June, 2011
So, Dungeon Siege III, although taking place in the same world, shares very little in common with both its predecessors and even its namesake. With most of the action taking place in castles, forests, caves, factories, mountains, swamps and numerous other locations, there are very few dungeons to be found at all within the game...

Review by AmosHong @ 15th June, 2011
AFL for the Wii shows promise, and is an improvement over the previous titles, but is severely let down by the presentation and several flaws in the gameplay. The highlight of the game has to be the surprisingly in-depth Career mode.

The Red Faction franchise has come a long way since the original GeoMod engine and its underutilised level of destruction. Although Armageddon excels in the destruction stakes, combining it with some adrenaline-pumping action and cool special abilities, it leaves you feeling empty with its less-than-enthralling story...

Review by nachosjustice @ 10th June, 2011
Alas, what many had hoped would be a glorious trip down memory lane, is a muddled affair that lacks spit and polish across the board. Hail to the king, baby? No. Sadly, it’s more akin to, ‘Fail to the king, baby.’

Review by KostaAndreadis @ 9th June, 2011
Fun and enjoyment in Hunted applies only to the co-op mode of the game, which thankfully is Hunted’s main selling point and playing the game alone definitely pales in comparison. As a linear path based action game, the design of the levels themselves aren’t exactly memorable nor are the bland visuals. But in co-op, where the fluid controls, half decent mechanics, some basic teamwork, and mindless action elevate what would be decidedly mediocre into something that can be a lot of fun.
