    FIFA 11 review

    By 1 October 2010

    To be completely honest, FIFA 10 was such a massive shake up for the franchise that, with FIFA 11, Electronic Arts could have released a mere update, relying on tweaks and fresh rosters. The software company even enhanced the gameplay a tad in the summer,...

    APB: All Points Bulletin - PC review

    By 8 July 2010

    Forget the hype. Forget the backlash. APB is not the Grand Theft Auto MMO that some of us dreamt of, but it's also no unqualified disaster. In bursts it is brilliant fun, yet it can also be deeply annoying, frustrating and disappointing. It's a game packed...

    Gears of War and Unreal are two of the best games of their time, so can Epic do it again with Bulletstorm? EA who is publishing the game when it comes out in 2011 certainly hopes so.  So what's it all about, is it any good, and should you start saving,...

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 review

    By 3 July 2010

    First, let's start with the bad news. On the Xbox 360 and PS3, the Tiger Woods PGA Tour series appears to have hit an impasse. In most respects, it's pretty difficult to tell this year's version from last year's effort, and while there are some major...

    By 21 June 2010

    We don't think many would contest that, after the brilliant Need for Speed: Most Wanted, the classic racing series lost its way. Need for Speed: Carbon? Mediocre. ProStreet? A bad experiment. Undercover? Don't even ask. Sure, last year's Shift was actually...
