Marvel vs Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes (MvC 2) is a quality remake of an extremely popular game in the Vs series. The game was first released on the NAOMI arcade platform and was released on the Dreamcast back in 2000. The game was later ported onto the PS2 and XBOX in 2002 receiving mixed reviews. Now through the efforts of Backbone Entertainment, who also did the HD port of Super Street Fighter I... more.

It has been almost a decade since the original Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (MvC2) hit the scene, crammed full of marvel comic characters and Capcom iconic characters from their game franchises over the years. The frenetic 3vs3 2D fighting gameplay offered was fantastic for its time and hardcore fanatics of the game really learnt the tricks and exploits to bust out infinite combos, rush down tactics and zo... more.

I will always have a soft spot for the Medal of Honor series. It was my first real introduction to the world of military FPS’s on the Playstation back in 2000. The rush up the beach on D Day with bullets flying everywhere, the sense of chaos as people died around you and explosions went off was a thing to behold in its day. Some other worthy titles followed in the series, and then it lost its wa... more.

The PlayStation Move is yet to see a killer title come out that innovatively utilises the technology in a true gamers’ game. By this I mean it isn’t just an add-on that most people will never use (for example to aim in games like Resistance and Killzone). Nor is it part of a “party game” which some would argue are merely fancy tech demos. Probably the best use of Move since its launch was ... more.

The production of Metro Last Light was so troubled many consumers assumed it would be the death of the title. The game's prequel, an adaptation of Dmitry Glukhovsky's novel Metro 2033, found its audience on the 360 but was overlooked due to certain gameplay issues and being overshadowed by more high-profile titles at the time. Last Light was overseen by THQ and was still in development when the pu... more.

Mindjack struck me as an interesting kind of game with a lot of potential. But, as a few of my friends keep telling me, if potential isn’t allowed to be realized, what’s left will shrivel up and die. Funny that I bring that up after playing the game because that’s exactly what I want the developers to do, right after I get a brain enema. GAMEPLAY Here’s the high concept of Mindjack. ... more.

I liked the idea of ModNation Racers from the first “on stage” demo I saw a few months back. Combining fun, addictive karting with the creative stroke of Little Big Planet seemed to be a winning mix on paper. That's what the guys from United Front Games have bet on, and produced ModNation Racers, a quirky title with customization galore and racing for young and old alike. We know that good ide... more.

The original MotorStorm title was actually one of the main reasons I first purchased my Playstation 3. After playing the no-holds bared off-road action, I couldn’t handle not playing more and more. But this game has come a long way from its roots, taking the action into a crumbling city on the brink of destruction. The premise is a great one, but can the new scenario and completely original take... more.

Persona 4 Arena can easily be dismissed as a game meant specifically for one very specific type of gamer. Atlus' Persona franchise, a JRPG series whose last two installments were on the PS2 around the time the PS3 was getting its footing can be seen sitting on some people's Top 10 of All Time lists, has been given the Fighting game treatment by Arc System Works, the development team responsible fo... more.
