Call of Duty: Modern Warfare RTX Breakdown
Review by KostaAndreadis @ 23rd February, 2009
From critically acclaimed Company of Heroes developer, Relic Entertainment, comes the latest in the Warhammer 40K series, Dawn of War II. This RTS mixes things up a bit offering a more action-packed experienced that also includes intuitive and addictive RPG elements rounding out one of the better strategy experiences in a long while...

More than just an expansion, GTA IV: The Lost and Damned essentially gives you a whole new game to play, simply set in the same city as Niko Bellic's exploits from GTA IV. As Johnny, a member of The Lost MC, you're job is to "stick it to the man" while keeping your own club brothers in line, out of harm's way and most of all, alive! With an intense new story, more characters and new gameplay innovations, The Lost and Damned has set a benchmark for all DLC to come...

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin continues the horrific tale of the tormented Alma and introduces players to Monolith's new protagonist, Michael Becket, another poor sap in the wrong squad at the wrong time. Combining the series' trademark horror and action sequences with the introduction of mech suits makes Project Origin an enjoyable romp, but there's still a heady list of faults to be found within...

The first of a planned series of downloadable content packs for Bethesda's Fallout 3 has arrived, and we've run it through its paces to let you know if it's worth the cash, bandwidth and space on your hdd. Despite only coming in at under five hours of game-time, we're treating all of these like reviews so you know exactly what you're getting and whether or not it's actually worth it, so head on in and check out our thoughts...

Killzone 2 Review (Score: 8.9/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 2nd February, 2009
Some serious development time has left Killzone 2 not only looking absolutely stunning, but also showing off the sheer power of the PS3 in the right hands. Modern FPS gaming comes wrapped alongside the splendid presentation with a few issues that probably should have been broached for the final product, but it doesn't stop the game from being a must-have for PS3 owners...

Skate 2 Review (Score: 7.8/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 30th January, 2009
Skate 2 continues the Flickit revolution but adds perhaps a little too much on the wrong side of what was already an awesome formula. But, as with the first game, Free Skate is where the bread and butter of fun and gameplay is here, so if you like to chill and roll around the streets tearing it up, EA might just have something for you...

Lord of the Rings Conquest takes the Dynasty Warriors formula and applies it to Middle-Earth. Hordes of orcs, men and elves (among others) now face off against each other, but is it a faithful expansion of the epic battles found within Peter Jackson's trilogy? Not likely...

Review by Steve Farrelly @ 10th December, 2008
A teaming up of characters from two once respected licenes, the DC Universe and Mortal Kombat in a fighting game might have seemed like a good idea, but the end result is a game that looks and feels out-of-date already...

Prince of Persia Review (Score: 7.5/10)
XBOX360
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 8th December, 2008
An all-new Prince of Persia with a revamped art style utilising the Assassin's Creed engine might sound like a great idea on paper, but what Ubisoft Montreal have delivered here is a beautiful tech-demo. The game is empty and falls short of ultimately engaging the player. It's still fun, but fundamentally lacking in many, many areas...

Left 4 Dead Review (Score: 9.3/10)
XBOX360
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 28th November, 2008
Fast running, hungry, angry zombies are the order of the day in your new favourite cooperative gameplay experience. Left 4 Dead takes the best elements from horror and zombie movies and crafts a multiplayer game more than worth the price of admission thanks to asymmetrical design, and pure fast-paced intensity...

Midnight Club LA Review (Score: 8.9/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 26th November, 2008
A stunning game that recreates LA with great success. Plenty of cars, race modes and customisation options will keep players busy for a long time to come, provided they can deal with heightened element of challenge...

Review by Steve Farrelly @ 24th November, 2008
Combining disaster movies, action, romance and the cheesiest dialogue this side of any Michael Bay movie with various Wii interactions was actually a pretty good idea on Nintendo's part. Unfortunately Disaster: Day of Crisis is a constant reminder Nintendo needs to take the core gamer more seriously...

Review by Dan @ 20th November, 2008
Tomb Raider Underworld is another fine addition to the restored Lara Croft franchise - a worthwhile purchase for anyone that enjoys third person action-puzzle type games and a no hesitation recommendation for anyone that's ever enjoyed a Tomb Raider game in the past.

Back to WWII but definitely not back to square one. Call of Duty: World At War takes the incredibly solid foundations of last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and builds upon them in various ways. It's stuff we've seen before, but a lot of it is definitely worth reliving omce again. And with a solid multiplayer and Zombie Nazis to tackle, this disc will be spinning in your platform of choice for quite a while to come...

Mirror's Edge Review (Score: 8.3/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 17th November, 2008
Mirror's Edge tries many new things and equally gets many of them right. However, there is a painful element of trial and error involved, but if you can stand to deal with contanstly replaying portions of a game over and over, there's an ironically refreshing game here. for more info check out our review...
