Carmageddon Funsize (iOS)

by .

Stainless’ mobile port of the original Carmageddon may not look as pretty as other games currently topping the charts on iOS but what it does bring is a genuinely entertaining, challenging and unique game to the platform. Older gamers will be drawn to a franchise they remember and younger gamers may get their first taste… Read more »

Darksiders II

by .

The latest in Vigil / THQ’s apocalyptic action franchise delivers a predictable mélange of action, narrative and gameplay with a few kinks in the story along the way. Whilst the game itself is physically much larger than its younger sibling, the sequel ultimately delivers less to the gamer and is sorrowfully another banal sequel to… Read more »

local multiplayer is still relevant

Online vs. Local Multiplayer

by .

The second bout of Game Show discussions takes place between Matty B and Raff and this time opens up debate as to whether multiplayer is better online or locally. Matty is in bold this time around. As I’m a proponent for all things old-school, I prefer local multiplayer. Some of my favourite memories are of… Read more »

Sniper Elite V2

by .

Any first or third person shooter worth it’s salt has a sniper rifle, usually in a stealthy level where most of the enemies are placed just a little bit further away to give you the feeling that it’s worth using.

The past few years have seen a lot of classic titles get 21st-Century updates – Shadowrun, Deus Ex and Bionic Commando spring to mind – and it would be fair to say that these titles are met with at best mixed reviews. Besides titles that incrementally update such as Street Fighter or Soul Calibur, it’s… Read more »

Super Probotector: The Alien Rebels [SNES]

by .

Konami sure know how to make a video game. If I had to list my top ten developers due to their output in the nineties I would rate Konami right up there in the top three. Castlevania, Parodius, Sunset Riders and the incredible X-Men Arcade all spring to mind. Top of the pile here though… Read more »

The Darkness II

by .

I like a good first person shooter, and I’ll like it even more if you give the hero special abilities; be it a cyber-suit, a fancy electric whip or supernatural powers, it just makes the game a lot more fun. A few years ago I came across The Darkness, where the hero is given some… Read more »
