Bioshock 2 - Xbox 360

By Tobias Henry

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... Read more

Dante's Inferno - Xbox 360

By Tobias Henry

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... Read more

Mass Effect 2 - Xbox 360

By Tobias Henry

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... Read more

Dark Void - Xbox 360

By Tobias Henry

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... Read more

Army of Two: The 40th Day - PS3

By Tobias Henry

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... Read more

Bayonetta - Xbox 360

By Tobias Henry

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... Read more

Darksiders - PS3

By Tobias Henry

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... Read more
