Mad Max

by .

If you’ve seen Mad Max: Fury Road this summer, I hope you agree with me that it’s an absolute tour de force of exploitation cinema. Beautifully shot, brilliantly presented and with just enough story to justify two of the biggest, baddest car chases in cinema history. The game however is sorely lacking that bombastic Mad… Read more »

2014 Games of the Year

by .

Unlike some other publications, we at The Game Show prefer to list our favourite games of the year after the year is actually over. (I think that’s a good enough excuse for the delay, better than we were all just having too much fun). In previous years we have tried to be democratic, and had… Read more »

Mario Kart 8

by .

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then the Mario Kart series is practically blushing. So many derivative kart racers have vied for pole position but for the most part have stalled in the first lap. Oddly though, with Mario Kart 8 Nintendo seems to have become an imitator itself, clearly taking inspiration from… Read more »

LittleBigPlanet Karting

by .

Many people forget that the original Modnation Racers was a surprisingly good racer let down only by criminally long loading times. As such, it’s gratifying to see United Front getting another bite at the cherry – albeit under the Little Big Planet banner. http://www.youtube.com/v/Ee82zRhh8WY Yet whilst this would seem like the ideal marriage of solid… Read more »

Older gamers will be drawn to a franchise they remember and younger gamers may get their first taste… Read more »

Trials Evolution is among the best Xbox Live arcade titles ever released, a big part due to the unbelievably flexible level creator tools and the geniuses creating and sharing all manner of tracks and homages to classic titles. Many a favourite game, from Asteroids and Missile Command to DOOM and Zelda have been recreated as… Read more »

Trials Evolution

by .

The sequel to the much loved Trials HD has landed on Xbox Live Arcade with the full weight of expectancy and the release has shown to be exactly as the title suggests; an Evolution. Gone are the claustrophobic warehouses of the former; welcome to the open world baby! Seemingly endless landscapes are ready to play… Read more »

WipeOut 2048

by .

Like it or not, when the original Playstation first appeared, it ushered in the era of gaming being cool. Yet there was one title above all others that became synonymous both with Sony and this new era – WipEout. Indeed, one can but wonder whether Sony would have met with such early success without it….

Mario Kart 7 [3DS]

by .

If there’s one thing that Nintendo seems to enjoy it’s going against convention.  After all, when Sony and Microsoft were trying to push the most bleeding edge technologies forward, Nintendo decided that what people really wanted to do was jump around and flail wildly in front of their televisions.  So at a time when most… Read more »
