Dead Rising 2: Case Zero Review

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero LogoDead Rising 2: Case Zero provides players with an idea of what to expect from the sequel to the 2006 Xbox 360 exclusive Dead Rising and introduces new protagonist Chuck Greene. This demo-cum-prequel also reassures fans that almost everything they loved about the first game is intact and the tense, time-constrained gameplay experience has not been watered down.

Chuck Greene is a motorcycle stuntman with a big problem. His daughter Katey has been infected with a virus that will turn her into a zombie unless she gets a shot of a drug called Zombrex every 12 hours. We are introduced to Chuck and Katey as they pull into a gas station in the small desert town of Still Creek in search of supplies. Read More…

Limbo Review

Limbo LogoLimbo is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle-platformer that puts you in the role of a boy that enters the fabled space between Heaven and Hell in search of his sister. In order to discover her fate, you will have to traverse 24 chapters of increasingly fiendish and deadly environmental puzzles.

Limbo is presented entirely in black and white and utilizes some great lighting, filter and depth of field effects. Your character is portrayed by a dark silhouette, with only the whites of his eyes to indicate whether he is living or dead. Read More…

Red Dead Redemption Review

Red Dead Redemption Cover ArtFor Red Dead Redemption, the team at Rockstar San Diego created a large and beautiful game world that authentically depicts life in the wild west and provides players with tons to do; whether they play as part of a posse or as a lone gunman.

In the single-player campaign, you play as John Marsten, a man out to save his wife from the clutches of a former fellow gang member. Marsten is an inherently good man with a checkered past, but unlike the Grand Theft Auto games there is a real sense of right and wrong in Red Dead Redemption thanks to a dynamic honour system.
