Darksiders

True to the spirit of its name, Darksiders has been lurking in the shadows. Unlike the heavily promoted Dante's Inferno and Bayonetta, two other titles clearly "influenced" by God of War, Darksiders hasn't tried to cultivate the same sort of marketin...

Bayonetta

There's an old adage about the first impression being the most important one and unfortunately, my first encounter with Bayonetta wasn't positive: it was when the game was first announced and the very first image of the titular witch was released. I ...

DJ Hero

Guitar Hero isn't just a successful game franchise: it's a bona fide phenomenon. But as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end and it's obvious that we've reached a saturation point for rhythm games. Sequels are becoming nothing mor...

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

It wasn't easy for me to review New Super Mario Bros. because it was hard to separate myself from the process. It's easy to take yourself out of the picture with most games because rarely do you have a deep-seeded connection to it; at worst, you may ...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

The first rule of my own personal reviews philosophy is "Remain objective" but that's almost impossible when dealing with a franchise that's as critically and financially successful as Call of Duty. I've been a fan of the series since its inception (...

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Uncharted 2 is just as good, if not better, than most Hollywood action movies. With fantastic production values, a cleverly written script, great voice-over work and refined gameplay, Uncharted 2 is the second best thing that could have happened to t...

Scribblenauts

You'll remember it for years to come and every so often, you'll think back upon it and get a little flutter in your stomach. It's one of those games that you can't help but like from the minute you pick it up. Despite a couple of issues, its ability ...

Wolfenstein

I wonder what started first: Quentin Tarantino's pre-production on Inglourious Basterds or the development of Wolfenstein. From what I've seen of the trailers, Inglourious Basterds looks like a seriously unserious take on the fight against the Nazi e...

Shadow Complex

Listen. I don't have much time. They've keyed into my position and they're closing fast. I'll have to make this quick. Infiltration of target [CONTENT CLASSIFIED] complete. Acquisition of project 'Shadow Complex' complete. I repeat: acquisition of pr...

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

When I reviewed the first Call of Juarez back in 2007, I praised the game's unique Wild-West setting but lamented the poor pacing and weak gameplay. Techland's follow-up effort, Bound in Blood, is much, much better and it's obvious that the developer...

The Conduit

I'm not sure who I should blame for The Conduit's shortcomings. Do I blame the developer for making a rather generic shooter with a convoluted storyline that isn't as epic or mysterious as it wants to be or do I blame Nintendo for creating a console ...

Let's Tap

I once called Wii Sports a glorified tech demo on the GamePro forums, much to the chagrin of the Wii fanboys. I didn't do it to demean the game in any way -- after all this time, it still remains the quintessential Wii experience -- but let's be hone...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

If I had to rank all of the Indiana Jones adventures in order of best to worst, I'd put The Last Crusade at the top -- that's an easy decision. The second best Indy adventure is just as easy to name: it's LucasArt's fantastic point-and-click adventur...

Fuel

I wasn't very impressed with Fuel when I first started reviewing it. Sure, it had great graphics and the racing was slick but I couldn't stop comparing it to Motorstorm and Pure; I wasn't sure what Fuel offered that those two games didn't. I'm still ...

Boom Blox Bash Party

The original Boom Blox was everything a Wii game should be. Like Wii Sports, it was original, fun and took full advantage of the Wii Remote's unique capabilities; the GamePro staff had a great time playing through it and our only complaint was that i...

Kathy Cassidy

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
