Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition Review
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 11th December, 2007
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is the first massive step in the right direction for exclusive content for the PS3. It is both visually and aurally stunning while the story and characters should keep you glued until the very end. It is unfortunately marred by unbalanced gameplay, repetitive and predictable AI and simple puzzles. These gameplay issues aside, it stands as a great leap forward in the marriage between film and games...

Lair Review (Score: 3.0/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 4th December, 2007
Lair has all the elements to be a descent game and does everything it can wrong to be one of the worst games around. Terrible visuals, a choppy engine, an unoriginal story and soundtrack and bland, mechanical controls and animations go a long way to making this a game best not talked about, let alone played...

Mass Effect Review (Score: 9.0/10)
XBOX360
Review by Dan @ 3rd December, 2007
While there's undoubtedly room for improvement in many facets of Mass Effect's gameplay, the storytelling element completely overwhelms them. In this reviewer's opinion, this is a game that rivals film and novel in its ability to tell a tale. Hands down the best Role Playing Game available on console today.

Trounce through 12th century Holy Land as master assassin Altair. Leaping from rooftops and taking out high-profile city officials is all in a day's work for our man of mystery. Speaking of which, Assassin's Creed holds one big mystery...

Call of Duty 4 takes players out of the WWII settings of the previous games an into Modern Warfare. Stunning in presentation and thick in action, Call of Duty 4 delivers one of the most gratifying single-player fps experiences ever, and then there's the multiplayer...

Review by Dan @ 12th November, 2007
Guitar Hero 3 is a worthy addition to the franchise that offers much more than just new songs and a number iteration. The gameplay still offers that winning combination of both casual accessibility and hardcore challenges that made the series what it is and the addition of online play adds a whole new dimension...

The last instalment in a near-perfect gaming trilogy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption gives us an even deeper look into the alien-riddled world of Samus Aran with the best console FPS controls ever crafted. Beautiful design, plenty of challenge and amazing boss battles make this a must-have for any Wii owner

The Legend of Zelda has been shrunk down to DS size for this, the true sequel to the memorable GameCube Zelda romp, The Wind Waker. Excellent visuals for Nintendo's little handheld coupled with unbelievable controls make this massive pint-sized adventure an absolute must-have for the DS...

Folklore Review (Score: 6.5/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 31st October, 2007
The PS3 tries its hands at off-the-wall Japanese action/RPG stuff with Folklore, a game set in between the realms of the living and dead in Ireland. Some pretty visuals and great voice-acting work hard to save this game, but too many gameplay flaws leave us wanting a bit more...

The Orange Box Review (Score: 10.0/10)
XBOX360
Review by Dan @ 29th October, 2007
If we had reviewed all these games separately, you'd be looking at high 8s and 9s out of 10. Rating on the merits of value - they don't come any better than this. If you only buy one disc this year, you'd do well to make it The Orange Box...

skate. Review (Score: 9.0/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 17th October, 2007
EA comes to the skating table with a revolutionary title aptly named skate. Here the world is your skating oyster and the advanced and innovative 'flickit' controls give an entirely new sensation to videogame skateboarding. Add to that some of the best animations ever seen in this type of game and absolute freedom and you have a clear winner...

Guitar Hero: Rocks the 80s is ultimately nothing more than 30 new songs to play in a near year-old game. If you're a GH veteran looking for fresh tunes and new challenges, make your decision after first reading the track list...

Super Paper Mario Review (Score: 8.5/10)
WII
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 5th October, 2007
Yes the game is incredibly cutesy, and yes it looks a bit gimmicky, but for anyone who has followed this series since its humble beginnings on the N64, you’ll know that the Paper Mario games are among the most enjoyable Plumber-clad adventures ever crafted from Nintendo...
