Rambo: The Video Game (PlayStation 3)

It's over, Johnny

In an industry where fantastic, marketable games are cancelled all too often and publishers are desperate to make up for years of inflation, the most impressive thing about Rambo: The Video Game is that it exists at all. However, that probably has something to do with the fact that it cost about £30 to make. It’s not all bad...

SEGA's Yakuza Series Started Life As a Gangster Inspired Gamble

Rolling the dice

While it may not get localised with much regularity anymore, the Yakuza franchise is one of the bigger brands in Japan at the time of writing. However, it took a big risk on SEGA’s part to reap those long-term rewards, as the series initially started life as little more than a good intentioned gamble on the legendary publisher’s...

Review: Earth Defense Force 2025 (PlayStation 3)

Earth Defense Force 2025 (PlayStation 3)

Alien ant harm

The biggest bugs in Earth Defense Force 2025 are not the iconic silver-backed ants that grace its outrageously ostentatious box art. The latest entry in Sandlot’s cult co-operative shooter series is a technical disaster, running a gamut of performance blunders larger than its colossal robotic adversaries. However, franchise fans...

Soul sister

The Souls series is not for the faint-hearted.

An intriguing narrative and a clever setting can go a long way in a sci-fi adventure game, but it’s a difficult thing to pull off. As such, Master Reboot – a Myst-esque excursion by BAFTA Cymru award winning developer Wales Interactive – struggles to combine its great ideas into a compelling whole. The title comes close at times,...
