We sit down with the team at Xbox's first-party studio World’s Edge to talk about the journey to bring Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition to Xbox.
Age of Empires 2 on Xbox - The Big Interview
One of the most visually stunning and immersive science fiction games we’ve experienced.
Dead Space Review - A Remake You’d Cut Off A Limb For
Forspoken is a game that consistently fails to deliver, despite some lofty ideas, and manages only to impress in the most obscure moments.

Buzz: Brain of Oz Review (Score: 7.8/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 12th May, 2009
The popular Buzz quiz game gets the Aussie treatment with a slightly more skewed Oz tint to the overall questions. Once again headed by Buzz himself, there's a decidedly tongue-in-cheek feel to this one since the voice of Buzz is good old Jason Donavan...

Banjo-Tooie XBLA Review (Score: 8.5/10)
XBOX360
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 12th May, 2009
The classic Rare platforming sequel, Banjo-Tooie, has landed on the Xbox Live Marketplace for Xbox Live Arcade, and is as good as ever thanks to a HD upscaling, the inclusion of Achievements and Leaderboards and a prefectly intact play experience...

Really - is there anything wrong with the tried and true method of using a hair brush and mirror? Well apparently in today’s modern age people demand more ways to get across their lack of singing ability. Luckily many take the SingStar path rather than trying out for Australian Idol...

The final chapter in the planned three downloadable episodes for Fallout 3, Broken Steel, expands the level cap 30 and allows players to re-exist in the Capital Wasteland. Does it expand upon every decision you made in the game from the start? Unfortunately no, but there's plenty of dynamic afterthought to digest nonetheless...

Wolverine packs a serious and bloody for the first furious time in a videogame, and it's an event long overdue. Following in much of the story footsteps of the major motion picture, X-Men Origins: Wolverine unashamedly delivers a bloody action experience, but is also somewhat mindless as a result...

At its heart, Galactrix retains the match three puzzle core that the PuzzleQuest branding demands. But because it is a “space” game, Infinite Interactive wanted a feeling of zero gravity So the hex gem match three game was born.

Runes of Magic Review (Score: 6.5/10)
PC
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 28th April, 2009
This free-to-play MMO offers a variety of familiar RPG elements in the online realm without the major hit to your bank account. Following closely in line with World of WarCraft design, but adding a few features of its own, Runes of Magic sets a benchmark for all free-to-play games of this nature to follow

Review by James Cottee @ 17th April, 2009
In squeezing the Resistance experience into the PSP hand-held, Sony Bend was faced with a markedly different design challenge to Insomniac’s task in creating the PS3 original. Whereas Resistance: Fall of Man was designed to show off the rendering potential of Sony‘s flagship console, Retribution's mission is one of deception. Not only must it work within the limitations of the PSP, it must also deliver an experience that bares a passing resemblance to its forbearer...

Wheelman Review (Score: 6.9/10)
XBOX360
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 15th April, 2009
Vin Diesel stars as the Wheelman, an undercover agent infiltrating the seedy underworld of Barcelona, Spain. As a wheelman, Diesel must perform getaways, escorts, chases and where necessary, severe car combat. A massive game-world with plenty of vehicular-centric level design makes this an enjoyable romp, it just suffers from focusing heavily on one main aspect...

The latest instalment in the popular movie quiz series offers even more clips and up-to-date questions about your favourite films, actors and genres. Unfortunately a lack of serious challenge and true customisation keeps this product from being as good as it could be. If you like showing off your movie knowledge prowess, however, you're going to enjoy this...

The second DLC pack to arrive for the ever-lasting (and expanding) Fallout 3, The Pitt, sends players out of the Capital Wastes and into the industrial world of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A thriving world exists here with the same morally grey factions we've come to know and expect from the world of Fallout 3. Which side will you align yourself with...

MadWorld Review (Score: 9.2/10)
WII
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 24th March, 2009
MadWorld marries art, pop-culture, old-school gaming and absolute violence for an over-the-top product of sheer joy. This is gaming at it's most hardcore and on the Nintendo Wii, no less. If you consider yourself a gamer, do yourself a favour and pick this up...

Patapon 2 Review (Score: 9.0/10)
PSP
Review by James Cottee @ 19th March, 2009
Patapon is unique. Part RTS, part rhythm action game, part one of those fruity Italian animations they used to play on the ABC in the 80s, it presents a game world that is stark, appealing, and utterly mesmerising...

Grand Theft Auto squeezes itself onto the Nintendo DS with stunningly awesome results. Solid gameplay, amazing technology (for the what it is) and all the GTA bells and whistles you'd expect make this arguably the best game on the system...

Resident Evil 5 Review (Score: 8.9/10)
XBOX360
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 17th March, 2009
The official fifth entrant in the Resident chronology and a true sequel to the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 4, Resi 5 serves up an action-packed rollercoaster ride of stunning visuals, big weapons, bigger bosses and hordes of mind-controlled human/insect symbiotes all vying for your blood. Will you survive?
