Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance 0

Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance review

It’s been ten years since the original Kingdom Hearts Final Fantasy and Disney mash-up and now Kingdom Hearts comes to the 3DS in the form of Dream Drop Distance. Old favourites Sora and Riku are back and this time they’re charged with completing the Mark of Mastery exam which doesn’t involve sweating over a piece of paper in silence but instead, both entering parallel worlds and saving them from cute but deadly monsters known as Dream Eaters. You can also recruit these little monsters to aid you and as an added bonus you can also play with them virtual-pet style...

Planet 51 The Game review

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Games released to come out at the same time as movies are usually very bad. Sometimes they work if they’re inspired by the movie or don’t have to come out to hit a movie deadline but that’s not the case with Planet 51 The Game. In the game you get to play as the ‘alien’ Lem and as the crashed astronaut Chuck as you both work together to find his spaceship and get him home. What the game basically boils down to is a series of boring tasks and races in...

Planet 51 The Game review

I’ve been a big fan of computer generated animation since it started to appear in movies in the 1980’s. When films such as Toy Story, Shrek and Monsters Inc hit the big screen I was instantly grabbed and whisked away into my idea of heaven. After such successes from Pixar and DreamWorks at the box office it’s quite understandable that other movie studios jumped on the bandwagon and started producing CGI movies of their own. As expected, these new movies were quite poor and rather formulaic. After trying their best to copy what made Pixar’s movies great, these other studios...

Up review

I had my first experience of 3D cinema the other day when I watched Up. Once my eyes had adjusted I was initially impressed but then I sort of got used to it. It’s the same with videogames. Next-gen machines come out and everyone goes ‘whooo’ but then the bar has to constantly be raised in order to impress. It’s a pity then that not only does Up have average graphics, but it’s also a very average platform game that’s of little interest to me. You mainly play the game as Carl and Russell as you move round the 3D...

G Force 0

G Force review

We all know that most movie licenses are very bad but Disney’s G-Force actually bucks the trend and delivers a satisfying action adventure with high production values and tight controls. In the game you play as Darwin, one of the G-Force team, as you try to put a stop to electrical appliances that have come alive thanks to a virus. In a change from the swine flu stories in the news at the moment, this time a virus is making irons, microwaves, toasters, shavers and headphones come alive and start attacking humans. Of course it’s far-fetched but these appliances provide...

The Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian review

We all know Traveller’s Tales are very good at making whacky games like Crash Bandicoot, Lego Star Wars and recently Lego Indiana Jones – with Prince Caspian they’ve had to reign the sillyness in to make a game that’s got very similar mechanics to the drop in-drop out gameplay of Lego games but also something with the epic feel of the movie. If you haven’t seen it, the foppish Prince Caspian is helped by the Pevensie family and a menagerie of beasts to save the kingdom from the rule of the evil King Miraz. Cue some fairly long levels set...
