Bust a Move 2 Saturn View

Bust-a-Move 2

by .

Bust-a-move 2 – aka Puzzle Bobble 2 – is loosely related to the fan favourite Bubble Bobble and a follow-up to previous foamy baffler Bust-a-Move, or Puzzle Bobble. The tiny and flawlessly cute Bub & Bob continue their divine quest to match coloured balls with similarly coloured balls and removing said group from the screen…. Read more »

Corpse Party review

Corpse Party

by .

Playstation Network might be home to some rarities, but a downloadable PSP remake of an original Japanese home computer title from 1996 surely edges out even Bishi Bashi Special. Ostensibly a survival horror title, the plot of Corpse Party sees a number of Japanese students being transported from their own school to the one that… Read more »

Pokémon Conquest

by .

Mashing up the gameplay elements of Pokemon with the traditional strategy of the Nobunaga’s Ambition series might seem a little peculiar but then did anyone really expect the union of Disney and Square to amount to anything? And just as Kingdom Hearts took people by surprise, placing Pokemon into a SRPG is such a good… Read more »

Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance

by .

Gamers could be forgiven for raising an eyebrow when they see an opening screen referring to the tenth anniversary of a series – especially when only two main titles have been released. For although numerous spin offs have expanded upon the Kingdom Hearts universe, the fact that we still haven’t seen number three makes the… Read more »

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD

by .

Right on cue, as the British weather cleared up, Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade returned for another year, and hopefully it will amount to the quality we saw of 2011’s releases. Bastion, From Dust and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet were the big hitters last time around, and only time will tell if this year’s offerings will… Read more »

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy

by .

Given the fact that rhythm action games have long since fallen out of favour with gamers and that Final Fantasy doesn’t exactly lend itself to this genre in the first place, there were a lot of raised eyebrows when Square decided to mark the 25th anniversary of the venerable RPG series with a rhythm action… Read more »

Resident Evil 4

by .

2005: Resident Evil 4 – the 14th game in the series – is released exclusively on the underperforming GameCube. The public expected another solidly-built and well-marketed product but ultimately a wholly uninspiring release. As seen in the majority of franchises that get into double digits of title, straying from the norm can be your downfall;… Read more »

Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

by .

Lego Batman 2 starts with the Joker causing his usual brand of mayhem which Batman and Robin must clean up. A fairly simple task until Lex Luthor joins in on the action. This will require the help from Superman, The Flash, Green Lantern and, well, pretty much every DC hero you can think of. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oX1oCiNyCOs… Read more »

GoldenEye 007 [N64]

by .

There was once an idea – the idea of making great games. Before increasing demands on financial success and capital returns was the impetus to make great games. This idea was spearheaded somewhat by a games developer you may have heard of called Rareware. Rareware were the brilliant minds behind some of the greatest games you… Read more »
