    Bioshock 2 - Xbox 360

    By 10 February 2010

    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 8 February 2010

    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 3 February 2010

    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...

    Dark Void - Xbox 360

    By 26 January 2010

    Where did it all go wrong? When it first made an appearance, Dark Void looked to have it all - an interesting premise, a cool retro sci-fi style, a winning combination of gunplay and aerobatics, a dashing hero, romance and lots of derring-do. The finished...

    Army of Two: The 40th Day - PS3

    By 19 January 2010

    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 12 January 2010

    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 11 January 2010

    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...
