Turbo: Super Stunt Squad – Repetitive Movie Tie-In

Turbo: Super Stunt Squad is the official movie tie-in game for DreamWorks new animated movie Turbo. I have never seen the movie so I don’t know if the game relates to it in any way but basically the game is a Tony Hawk style game for kids.

Telltale Games, who brought us the award winning The Walking Dead episodic adventures, have now brought us The Wolf Among Us. However have they managed to bring the Fables comic books to life in the form of a video game or was The Walking Dead just a one hit wonder?

Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion is a hack and slash third person style game that tries to take ideas from game like Dynasty Warriors. However Orc Attack fails at doing so as all the main features that made Dynasty Warriors are sadly missing.

Air Conflicts: Vietnam – Dog Fights

Air Conflicts: Vietnam – Dog Fights

Air Conflicts: Vietnam isn’t going to blow you away and is probably not going to be the best game you ever play, but that does not mean you can’t have fun with it. Air Conflicts: Vietnam is very much what you see is what you get as the title is simple and so is the gameplay. However this simplicity of the gameplay is actually very refreshing but the game does not have enough variation to keep things interesting for long.

There are not many games that can seamlessly combine gameplay and story in a way that is rewarding and extremely fun at the same time, however Rockstar North have done so with Grand Theft Auto V.

Where Have All The Quiz Games Gone?

Where Have All The Quiz Games Gone?

This generation of consoles has been the generation for the rise of online, multiplayer gaming. The vast majority of players, play their games online or have the functionality in place to do so. Last weekend I decided to buck the trend and play a game (Wait for it…Brace yourself…) in local multiplayer with both of us playing on the same Xbox console, in the same room! (Gasp!)

Terraria – Digging for Gold

Terraria – Digging for Gold

When you first look at Terraria you may think it looks very simple, and you would be right. When you start playing you are greeted by a very basic tutorial and then you are given a world to explore with little more than a pickaxe and a sword.

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger – Back to the Good Old Wild West

Call of Juarez: Gunslinger – Back to the Good Old Wild West

It’s a rare occasion when the Wild West is the setting for a first person shooter. It’s strange that it is not used as a setting more as it is one of the best for creating a great atmosphere and a good gritty story. So hunting down the most wanted criminals of the Wild West with your six shoot revolver whiles the high noon sun is beaming down on you makes for a great game.
