PS3 Review: Disney Universe

PS3 Review: Disney Universe
Disney Universe is an incredibly fun game, and while it might not hold quite the same all-ages appeal as the LEGO games, it’s an absolute blast for kids. Combining cute character and world design, a great sense of humour and a tonne of inventive, diverse and enjoyable gameplay, Disney Universe is just...

PS3 Review: WRC 2: FIA World Rally Championship 2011

PS3 Review: WRC 2: FIA World Rally Championship 2011
Milestone’s latest will do little to convert naysayers or those who picked up last year’s WRC game, since while it boasts the full updated car roster 2011 WRC roster, precious little else has been upgraded for this new entry. But while it’s a package sullied by dated presentation,...

PS3 Review: Spider-Man: Edge of Time

DVD Review: Assassination Games

DVD Review: Assassination Games
It doesn’t give Van Damme anything resembling a worthy follow up to J.C.V.D. in terms of substantial character, but even those expecting a fun, mindless martial arts flick will be incredibly disappointed by the sheer lack of action to be found here...

PS3 Review: The Cursed Crusade

PS3 Review: The Cursed Crusade
A plodding, shallow plot steals you away from the gameplay at every opportunity to force an endless parade of clunky cutscenes on you, and when you finally do get to play the game, the initial fun quickly evaporates as the gameplay reveals itself to be rather dull, repetitive and shoddily constructed...

Book Review: ‘Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth’ by Christopher Golden

Book Review: ‘Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth’ by Christopher Golden
Those who loved the games will likely find that this paperback Nathan Drake outing never reaches the heights of its interactive equivalent. But while it’s derivative and light on character, The Fourth Labyrinth still makes for a fun, pulpy adventure that proves to be an enjoyable afternoon read...
