I’ll admit this is little (as in, a decade) late, but it’s still an interesting game. It is a bit difficult to review though, considering almost everyone has heard of it, and the way it has spawned an astoundingly popular series which, in spite of barely changing over the years, is still going strong and has sold one hundred and seventy five million games. And, its developer, Game Freak, is still going, even though the only other game they’ve made I can think of is Game Boy Camera (eight out of ten, by the way). The picture on the right’s a Ford Tempo, just in case you wanted to know.

You hear that. That’s the sound of your bones breaking after you have just carelessly jumped from a helicopter which is 50ft in the air. That’s right folks, ‘Dead Rising’ is the Comedy/Slash em’ up/Shoot em’ up kinda free roamer? From the ever popular CAPCOM. The game follows a photojournalist by the name of Frank West who ends up trapped in a shopping mall in the fictional town of Willamette, Colorado, that is infested with zombies.

Right, straight off the bat, let me say that this review will be hard for me to do with a semblance of professionalism. Why? Because the Monster Hunter series is one I keep close to my heart, so there may be a slight amount of bias throughout this review.

Ok, so I know what you’re thinking, ‘Why is some raving, idiotic, critic comparing a game and a band?!’ And, well, the answer is; I, am a raving, idiotic, critic and I can do whatever the hell I want. You’ll see how this will all come together in a moment.

Alright, so Too Human, Xbox exclusive, so far ratings haven’t exactly…well…let’s just say they aspires to adequacy…point made? Excellent.

‘Don’t worry, your genetic code is being re-written, just hold on and you’ll be just fine’ Said Atlas ever so calmly. My response: ‘Yea, ONLY MY F******* GENETIC CODE!’

I am a harsh critic. I rate games very vigilantly and it takes a lot to convince me on something. But Bioshock, it takes the biscuit. Not only did it utterly thrill me, it physically got me jumping up and down as I stepped out of the Bathysphere for the first time. (Thought I was going something bad didn’t you? Kekekekeke) I…love…this…game…

It takes a lot for me to say that about any game. I know quite the few people who would say that I’m losing it and it’s not actually all that good. They can talk to Big Daddy thank you. This game was an achievement across all its platforms. Suffice to say I spend more time looking out windows than playing the game because the city of rapture is stunning. The visuals were carved from the flesh of the Gods.

So far, there’s been a decent number of RPGs on the DS, such as Contact, Final Fantasy III and Phantom Hourglass, but, even though they’re all decent enough games, none have done anything all that new. Then, Square-Enix released this picture to an unsuspecting world.

Super Smash Bros Brawl - by Sparky

Just at the beginning of last summer, I saw an offer in Game for Super Smash Bros Melee, Metroid Prime and Wind Waker for £20. A pretty good deal for three of the best Gamecube games at about £6.50 each. I played each of them obsessively, and played Corruption and Phantom Hourglass, their sequels. I was obviously looking forward to Brawl, but so were most Wii owners. But, it was delayed over and over until I forgot, and I didn’t get it until almost two months after it came out.
