Catherine Review

The most entertaining kick to the groin ever. Catherine is not a game for the faint of heart. This infuriatingly difficult puzzle game has absolutely destroyed me, and yet for some unknown reason I keep returning to it, as if I am unbeknown to what…

I Am Alive Review

A brutally honest insight into survivalist human nature. I Am Alive has been a long time coming, first entering development at Darkworks in 2008, before being completed by Ubisoft. With a focus on survival, without the horror, I Am Alive presents a brutally honest depiction of what the…

Binary Domain Review

With Mass Effect 3 just around the corner, Sega have snuck Binary Domain out the door and into stores to try and cash in on the third person shooter hype. In a densely populated market, Binary Domain has some ambitious inclusions that work for the most part, giving it a genuine…

inFamous Review

InFamous is one of the PS3 exclusives that can make you really consider buying the console. It manages to use some storyline elements most of us would consider cliched, yet twists them in a unique way, delivering a perfect mix of action and an interesting…

Anno 1404 Review

There have been various experiments with that formula though, for example removing the resource gathering aspect and concentrating solely on good tactical skills…

Terminator Salvation Review

The newest Terminator movie came out closely followed by a game named after it, which was the result of the collaboration between several developers. Despite its short length, it serves as a nice addition to the experience from the movie, and if you own an…

Stargate: Resistance Review

Cheyenne Mountain has a mixed reputation as a game developer studio. They managed to release some profitable titles, while on the other hand their latest instalment in the Stargate video game series (the one before Resistance) was widely regarded as a failure, both commercially and…

Section 8 Review

Section 8 comes out as an odd game right from its title – some of you may already know the meaning behind the term; it’s a reference to a regulation in the US Army related to discharging personnel for mental issues – and this relates…

Saw: The Video Game Review

The Saw movie franchise has spawned numerous movies, most of which have been received very positively by the public and critics alike. Thus, it’s no wonder that the developers eventually decided to create a video game based on the movies, in order to give the…

Resident Evil 5 Review

You can hardly have an excuse for not having heard of the Resident Evil franchise at least once in your life – it’s a hugely popular and successful one, which started out from a series of console games and was later made into a movie…
