PS3 Review: UFC Undisputed 3

PS3 Review: UFC Undisputed 3
The parade of excessive load times are a pretty glaring mark on and otherwise impeccable package, but disappointing bloat aside, the fantastic presentation and brutal, well balanced and beautifully realised gameplay help make UFC Undisputed 3 is as satisfying, deep and rewarding a fighting game as any in...

Book Review: ‘Raylan’ by Elmore Leonard

Book Review: ‘Raylan’ by Elmore Leonard
It’s punchy pulp peppered with dynamite dialogue, but ‘Raylan’ often feels more like Leonard had a few vague ideas for episodes of the show and half-heatedly stretched them out into a full-length book...

Film Review: Evidence (2011)

Film Review: Evidence (2011)
Unnervingly tense and filled with more than a few startlingly effective scares, it’s an impressive little horror film, but like many of its genre brethren, it stumbles in the third act, dissolving its tense atmosphere with a clumsy, overreaching ending which replaces genuine fright with noisy,...

DVD Review: 30 Minutes or Less

DVD Review: 30 Minutes or Less
With a top-notch comedic cast and a tonne of gag-filled banter, this tremendously fun fusion of ’80s action comedy and modern ad-libbing sensibilities makes it a great companion piece for Pineapple Express...

Blu-Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level

Blu-Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level
If you love The Next Generation, you’re going to be buying the full season sets anyway, so it’s a little pointless to pick this sampler disc up. If you’ve never really seen the show and are looking to test the waters before you jump in, this is a great way to do it – the series has...

Book Review: ‘Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick’ by Joe Schreiber

Book Review: ‘Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick’ by Joe Schreiber
A less-than-original blend of Collateral, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Taken and Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Schreiber’s book is so derivative it’s practically begging for a lawsuit. But while it’s nothing remotely new, it’s never less than entertaining, with a...

XBLA Review: Choplifter HD

XBLA Review: Choplifter HD
Those with a fondness for the original Choplifter will be pleased to find that the HD remake is a faithful reworking that has plenty of fun moments and a nice blend of chaotic action and minimal strategy. But repetitive design, extreme difficulty spikes and an extremely high asking price mean it’s not...

PSN Review: Disney Universe – A Nightmare Before Christmas DLC & Villains Character Pack
The Nightmare Before Christmas DLC is a must buy if you dug Disney Universe, though. There’s a decent amount to it and its clever use of the license in its puzzle-centric gameplay makes playing through it even more fun...

XBLA Review: NFL Blitz

XBLA Review: NFL Blitz
The removal of late hits aside, the HD update of NFL Blitz is a stacked package that offers a tonne of value while recapturing almost all the fun you remember from the original game. It’s a fast-paced, action-packed, pick-up-and-play sports game that’s a tonne of fun for NFL fanatics and...

XBLA Review: Sonic CD

XBLA Review: Sonic CD
If you’ve played the game before, the visual upgrades and added bonuses make it a must buy, and if you’ve never checked Sonic CD out but are craving some old-school 2D Sonic action, you should definitely give it a shot, especially at a surprisingly cheap 400 Microsoft Points...
