Super Meat Boy

I've considered quitting, but despite the fact that I've suffered so many defeats, Meat Boy's blissful 2D platforming won't let me go. This is a game for patient players or those willing to put up with punishment: Super Meat Boy lights short fuses wi...

Skate 3

Critics and fans alike lauded the first Skate title for its innovative control scheme and serious approach to skateboarding, but let's be honest: fans were just happy to have an alternative to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater's reliance on ridiculous tricks an...

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Two members of my squad have taken too long to radio in our extraction, and the third just impatiently ran off into the storm in search of them.

Dragon Age: Origins - Return to Ostagar

In Dragon Age's first DLC pack, unexciting battles against too-familiar foes replace the core game's engaging storytelling. Generic genlocks fling arrows at you while darkspawn lumber toward you in a laughable attempt to take your team down.

Scene It? Twilight

Because of my age (21) and my sex (male), I am not a primary candidate for Twilight-ification. In fact, I'm almost convinced that I have a genetic predisposition to despise the cheesy romance and angsty vampire melodrama. The way my younger sister de...

Left 4 Dead 2

While most games come with both a multiplayer and single-player component, the fact is that they're either one or the other; both modes are often included to fill out the feature list but often a game is either a single-player game with a multiplayer...

Need for Speed: NITRO

I dreaded my first race in Need for Speed: NITRO because I couldn't think of a more inconvenient way to drive than pointing the Wii remote forward and tilting it side to side, especially in a balls-to-the-wall arcade racer. The "street" imagery -- ri...

Need for Speed: SHIFT

Obviously, simulation racing isn't the most organic evolution for the series. Sure, ProStreet had a dose of realism injected into it, but it wavered indecisively between circuit sim and arcade racer. So it's appropriate that the latest NFS title is c...

Borderlands

Let's face it: the apocalypse has been done to death. Nowadays, everyone and their neighbor has some futuristic tale to tell, but this innovative title from 2K Games somehow manages to breathe some new life into a somewhat tired genre.

Forza Motorsport 3

Forza 3 inspired some mixed feelings in our reviewer Mitchell who thought that the game's slick modes and pretty graphics had a lot to offer but it somehow failed to keep him glued to the driver's seat. Read on to find out why, despite the game's obv...

Gran Turismo

Even an endless list of cars can't compensate for Gran Turismo's shortcomings.

DiRT 2

DiRT 2 's slick menus and stylish presentation will wow you when you first boot up the game but you won't see the full breadth of the imaginative personality and original ideas until you hit the track. DiRT 2 's fantastic rally racing is where the br...

Madden NFL 10

Year over year Madden catches flak for recycling previous content into a repackaged roster update. Madden NFL 10 makes a concerted effort to change that perception with a suite of changes but don't freak out: this is still the same Madden you've come...

Battlefield 1943

If I didn't know any better I'd have wagered a fat stack of cash that Battlefield 1943 was sold on real-life shelves in a real-life box. Instead, this Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network download boasts the quality of a full-blown retail game at...

Overlord II

The first Overlord was an overlooked adventure game that blended the best parts of Pikmin with the worst parts of the Bible. Casting gamers as a walking apocalypse with demon underlings, the delightfully cheery fantasy world gave the game a dark yet ...

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.
