Transformers: The Game

Michael Bay’s latest, the action movie Transformers based on the toy robots with the same name from the 90s, has divided the movie watching audience. Either you thought it was great or you thoiugh it sucked completely. There doesn’t seem to be a way in between – actually you could say the same for all […]

Spider-Man 3

Spider-Man 3 is the first game in the series that sees the light on the newest consoles. Expectations where therefore – against better judgment – a bit higher than normal. After a couple of promises and screens this game looked to become more than an exercise to earn more money on a movie. The end […]

Tony Hawk's Project 8

With the launch of Microsoft’s next-gen console, the first console version of a Tony Hawk game was a fact… Unfortunately this wasn’t such an innovating (let alone good) game. After all, Tony Hawk: American Wasteland was developed mainly for older consoles like the PS2 and Xbox. This time the game has been rebuilt from the […]

Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam

The term Downhill Jam spontaneously reminds me of the game Skate or Die which I as a kid played a lot. In that game there was a round where you had to get down the street faster than your opponent and Skate or Die then have me the idea to learn how to skate to […]

Call of Duty 3

Call of Duty had made its reputation already on PC thanks to innovative gameplay, beautiful graphics and an unseen level of intensity. The successor, CoD2, was a launch game on Xbox360 and made an even bigger impact on that platform. The third episode, not counting the side-projects, is only released on consoles, something PC-lovers couldn’t […]

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

The X-Men: Legends games don’t offer a ton of gameplay possibilities, but they do their core element right: beating down wave after wave of enemies. With their spiritual successor to the series, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Raven Software has tried to balance and perfect the trademark hack ‘n’ slash gameplay. Let’s find out if they’ve succeeded. […]

X-Men: The Official Game

I’m sure most of you have already seen X-Men: The Last Stand, the disappointing final chapter of the X-Men movie trilogy. X-Men: The Official Game is meant to give you useful background information to the Hollywood blockbuster (and to make some quick cash while at it, of course). Unfortunately, being a hero isn’t what it’s […]

Guitar Hero

Rocking is cool, everybody who ever banged his head knows this. For all those who dream to be just like those guitar gods, and for once to be worshipped by thousands of fans, Guitar Hero will sound as music to their ears! The first and immediately the most important aspect which makes Guitar Hero so […]

World Series of Poker

Poker… what can a man say about a cardgame, and then even a game that is known to most people for getting the other sex to undress every so often. Still there’s a lot more to say about Poker when it comes to computer games. Next to the often dubious “free” strip poker online sites, […]

Shrek SuperSlam

I’ll admit, despite my rather advanced age I’m still a sucker for the better animated movie. Next to some of the well known Disney Classics I also own Dreamworks’ flagship movies Shrek and Shrek 2. And I didn’t buy them for the kids alone, I truly enjoy watching them myself. The humour and advanced technology […]

True Crime 2: New York City

The first True Crime wasn’t a great game, but it did sell just about enough for a brand new sequel. True Crime: Streets of L.A was a perfect example of stealing a great concept (GTA) to be able to steal a bit of its success. But hey, nobody gave a rat’s ass and Activision certainly […]

Quake 4

When id and Raven announced that they would include a singleplayer part in Quake 4, I was relieved. I can still recall Quake II, being one of the better no-nonsense shooters: put your brains out and just blast your way through the levels. Quake III didn’t had a traditional singleplayer campaign, but was probably one […]

Call of Duty 2: Big Red One

Bringing a celebrated first person shooter for PC to consoles can prove succesful (Far Cry Instincts) or can turn into a major disappointment (Call of Duty: Finest Hour). After seeing its first attempt nailed down by the critics, Activision ordered a new team to establish a beachhead on console ground. Did this new attempt turn […]

X-men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse

Allow me to start off with the following statement: if you’re looking for originality, look elsewhere! For gameplay reference I gladly point you to b|0-0|n’s review of the original game for Xbox he wrote last year, as not much has changed in that department. Graphics and sound are of the same quality, not bad for […]

GUN

It has been quite a while since the last decent game set in the Wild West was released. For me, that was Red Dead Revolver which even now is still a great but unsung game. GUN has picked up Red’s trail but will it be able to hunt him down, become allies or the new […]
