Soul Calibur 4 Review (Score: 7.0/10)
PS3
Review by Steve Farrelly @ 19th August, 2008
A similar game to those that have come before, Soul Calibur IV's biggest offerings are frustrating online gameplay and Star Wars characters fans don't seem to want. Is it time for the series to undergo a big change?

EA and DICE have done a commendable job of compacting the best parts of the popular Battlefield series and bundling it with an entertaining narrative. Battlefield Bad Company is a much more attractive console game than any straight-up port of a PC Battlefield title could be; A worthwhile purchase for any first person shooter fan looking for a bit of light-hearted fast-paced explosive action.

For those holding out for that one must have PlayStation 3 exclusive title to justify the shiny machine's unfaltering price, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots may or may not be the answer. While it may be an exceptional work of art and a material example of the PS3's technical capabilities, you'll either enjoy it, or you won’t.

Square-Enix retool the Japanese RPG blueprint here with an action/RPG hybris riddled with Japanese pop music that may or may not be the death of you. Looking past a questionable soundtrack reveals an interesting game that works pretty well on the DS with a funky art-style and great story...

Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures gets the thumbs up. It's different enough from other popular MMOs to stake its own claim in the genre. If you consider that there are two parts to an MMORPG, the initial purchase and the ongoing subscription – For an RPG fan, Age of Conan is well worthy of step one. Step two? Well that's up to you and the 30 days you get with the game should be plenty of time to figure that out.
