Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey Review

The latest Shin Megami Tensei game, "Strange Journey" tells of how humans have reached the point where the population has exceeded the 70 billion mark but without resolving the many issues that damaged the natural habitat of Earth, an odd phenomena has occurred in the Antarctic. A giant magnetic hole has appeared and is slowly...


Batman: Arkham Asylum, PC Version Review

Quite a few next-gen console ports to the PC lately and since none of the currently released PC titles appeal to me, I thought I'd try out another console port Batman: Arkham Asylum to give my underused graphics card a workout. The story begins with Joker being taken to the asylum but it turns out to be one of his clever plans in yet another...


Ys VII (Seven) Review

First thing's first. People seem to have confused Ys The Oath in Felghana being Ys7 so I'd just like to make it clear Felghana was really more of a side story like Ys Origin. I guess that's why Falcom decided to write the English word "Seven" instead of using the Roman numeral. So the Ys ARPG series has reached its seventh title, "Ys Seven...


Monster Hunter 3 Review

Monster Hunter never had much of a storyline but in the latest title for the Wii, "Monster Hunter Tri (3)" tells of how you arrive at the village of Moga as a hunter, a small village situated between the sea and dense forests. Lately, they've been having a lot of earthquakes and think the great sea monster Ragiakuls is responsible. You...


Arc Rise Fantasia Review

Enemies are visible and you navigate the maps with the nunchuk. There is support for the classic control pad but to be honest, I don't see why they couldn't just use the Wiimote sideways because there's enough buttons to cover the game's functions. Along the way, you can speak to your party members to learn more of the story which is...


Wii MotionPlus and Wii Sports Resort Review

The Wii MotionPlus accessory has been out for several weeks here but funnily enough, the software that really shows it off Wii Sports Resort wasn't released until last Friday. As you can see, they come with their own bigger rubber case... But I don't use them so I just took them off. Plugging the accessory in makes the Wiimote a fair bit...


FFCC My Life As A Darklord Review

The next Square-Enix WiiWare title "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life As A Darklord" is now out in Europe for 1000 points (£7) with additional content costing more with Pay to Play scheme... A lot more. Monsters have been forced into hiding in a tower by heroes and the "kind" Darklord Craydall offers to be sealed away into a...


Street Fighter IV PC Version

I first played Street Fighter at the arcades for 50p a shot and it didn't last very long ^^; Then I went onto playing the first game on the Famicom followed by SFII Turbo on the SNES at a friend's place. Great that I can play online for as much as I want now with Street Fighter IV. If anyone's up for a match, drop me a message, my tag is Xcompu...


Another Code R: A Journey into Lost Memories Review

Although the game  itself is presented in 3D with cell-shaded character models, most of the time you're just holding the left or right buttons on the D-pad to move around with the odd branching path to the north or south. It kind of takes some getting used to as the screen pivots around Ashley. This is the same when you enter areas that you...


The Sims 3 Review

After so many expansion packs for the second game, The Sims 3 was finally released last month which you could say, compresses it all into one neat package and adds a vast number of improvements to the original game. If you don't know already, the game is about simulating life but without all the real world mishaps, allowing you to work...
