DMC Devil May Cry 0

DMC Devil May Cry review

Most of what we’ve heard about this reboot of Devil May Cry is people moaning about Dante’s hair not being white. In fact, there’s even a little joke about his new barnet during the first level of the game but fear not, finish the game and you’ll be able to play through the levels again with a new shade of short haircut that might appease you. Fans of the older games will also be pleased that Cambridge based developers Ninja Theory have also done a good job of combining the hardcore gameplay of stringing combos of moves together to rack...

Ninja Gaiden 3 Razors Edge 0

Ninja Gaiden 3 Razors Edge review

Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge is one of many enhanced ports from HD consoles coming over to Nintendo’s dual-screen wonder with some added touch screen controls for the Gamepad and some new additions to the Ninja Gaiden gameplay to tweak what was, to be fair, a pretty average affair when it came out last year. Unfortunately I’m playing this game off the back of the sublime Devil May Cry remake as well which doesn’t help matters, and things are further compounded due to a game breaking bug fairly early on in the game which halted my progress so I’ll give...

God of War Ghost of Sparta 0

God of War Ghost of Sparta review

Ghost of Sparta is the second God of War title to appear on the PSP and once again Kratos is very very angry. Instead of going to see a counsellor about his issues once again he decides to unleash his rage using his Blades of Athena and a number of other artefacts he collects from the Gods along the way in order to find his brother Deimos. The game’s pretty much a case of if it ain’t broke don’t fix it so if you’ve played any of the games on the consoles or the handheld you’ll know what to expect....

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 1

Castlevania Lords of Shadow review

Over the past couple of years I’ve really enjoyed the recent side-scrolling Castlevania games on the DS and this latest title brings the series into full 3D in the form of a 3rd-person action adventure. Even though it bears the Castlevania name it’s interesting that the game was just titled Lords of Shadow when it was announced in 2008 and that’s probably why it doesn’t actually feel like a Castlevania game. Set in a monster and demon-ravaged Middle Ages, you play as Gabriel Belmont as you travel the land and attempt to send these hellish creatures back where they came...

Ninety Nine Nights 2 0

Ninety Nine Nights 2 review

I’ve never heard of the original Ninety-Nine Nights but you don’t need to have played the first game to understand what’s going on in this sequel. Basically it’s the usual fantasy story of an evil army horde invading and you being the good guys trying to stop it. Along a similar vein to the Dynasty Warriors games you fight thousands of enemies as one of 5 lone combatants as you hack and slash heads and limbs off your enemies to get to the other side of the level. And these levels are large and take a while to get through...

Dantes Inferno review

Dante’s Inferno may be based on a chapter from the poem The Divine Comedy and even though it completely rips off God of War, it actually is poetry in motion and therefore a very good game in the hack ‘n’ slash genre. So you play as Dante as you’re literally stabbed in the back at the beginning of the game. You then manage to fight off Death and steal his scythe and using this and a holy cross you make your way through the nine circles of hell to defeat Lucifer and get your beloved Beatrice back. Along the way...
