Bioshock 2 - Xbox 360

By

By all logic, Bioshock 2 should not be this good. Not only is it a sequel, but it's a sequel to a game that really didn't need a sequel. We've seen Rapture, we've fought the splicers, we've had the rug pulled out from beneath our feet and we've seen Ryan's... >>

Dante's Inferno - Xbox 360

By

Ah, Dante's Inferno: the game where EA surprises us all with a sensitive, literate take on the first part of Dante Alighieri's 14th Century Masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, taking us on the poet's imaginary journey through the nine circles of Hell, led... >>

Mass Effect 2 - Xbox 360

By

Mass Effect was a triumph on so many levels that it's almost churlish to point at the few areas where it fell short. Bioware took a major risk in trying to fuse its classic RPG style with a more action-oriented experience, yet for the most part the gamble... >>

Army of Two: The 40th Day - PS3

By

It's easy to understand why some original game properties merit a sequel. In some cases, the first game is so brilliant that everyone is left wanting more, hence Modern Warfare 2, Bioshock 2 and Mass Effect 2. In others, it's a chance to turn a half-decent... >>

Bayonetta - Xbox 360

By

We have a theory about how Bayonetta came about. Sure, the obvious line is that it's a game by Hideki Kamiya of Devil May Cry fame, and the natural development of his work on the much-loved action game series, but we prefer to think of it like this. Take... >>

Darksiders - PS3

By

If there's one thing Darksiders won't score high for, it's originality. Video game aficionados will have a field day spotting all the stuff it's stolen, and as a brutal, seven word summary "God of War meets Legend of Zelda" has things covered. The basic... >>
