Test Drive 4 PlayStation review

Test Drive 4

by .

Test Drive 4 – What I believe to be one of the cheapest race games I’ve ever played. It is not cheap because it’s bad as I still have had a lot of fun with it. All the elements are fundamentally good; a brilliant line up of fast cars, good looking graphics for a PlayStation… Read more »

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.

There is earnestly nothing new to say about The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, no hyperbole that hasn’t been used over and… Read more »

Pac-Man

by .

Before I proceed I need you to fully understand how iconic Pac-Man is. I know you all think you know Pac-Man – Pakkers to his mates – but unless you put on your yellow ‘Pac’ suit, paint your cats orange, red, blue and pink and dab catnip behind your ears so they chase you -… 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 »
