For The Masses

Hadouken! are by no doubt the most ridiculous band ever to have released an album on a major record label. They produce the sort of music that I like to imagine Cook from Skins would enjoy and believe to be the best aural experience ever to have been created by...

Army of Two: The 40th Day

The original _Army of Two_ was by no means critically acclaimed; with its setting located partially in Iraq and its glamourised portrayal of modern warfare and private military companies, it struck a little too close to home for some. Premise aside, the game comprised of a well rounded third person...

Halo Legends

Having reviewed all of the major _Halo_ releases in the past 18 months, there’s no reason why the _Boar_ shouldn’t continue to provide coverage of the franchise, even if it’s expanded beyond the realm of gaming and into the larger market of home video entertainment. Although there have been multiple...

Assassin’s Creed II

_Assassin’s Creed 2_ is the definition of a perfect sequel, improving the original in nearly every way while still retaining what differentiated the franchise from its competition, primarily the huge cityscapes and the ability to climb and explore nearly everything you can see. However, what elevates _Assassin’s Creed 2_ above...

Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time

The Ratchet & Clank franchise has always been somewhat of an underdog in the line-up of Playstation exclusive titles. Although critically acclaimed, you never see the crazy hype for a _R&C_ game like you do with _Uncharted_ or _Killzone_. Most likely this is to do with the subject matter, the...

First Impressions: Split/Second

A lot of people may never have heard of _Split/Second_, it’s hardly been marketed at all and it’s still months away from release. In general it’s pretty low down on people’s radars at the moment but if you adore the hectic and crazy action of the _Burnout_ franchise, this title...

Need for Speed: SHIFT

Making the most of the street racing boom set in motion by _The Fast and the Furious_ films, the _Need for Speed_ franchise really hit the mainstream with the release of _Underground_ in 2003. Critically and commercially successful, _Underground_ led to a number of sequels, all sharing some common aspects...

Tales of Monkey Island: Lair of the Leviathan

Having reviewed the previous chapter of the _Tales of Monkey Island_ series, it only seems right that I divulge my much sought after opinion on Guybrush’s third outing in episodic form, _Lair of the Leviathan_. While thinking of what I’d say for this review, I immediately ran into a problem....

Halo 3: ODST

The _Halo_ franchise is an entertainment juggernaut, one that devours its competition and holds the honour of a “system seller”; _Halo_ games instil such desire in the masses that people are willing to pay hundreds of their hard earned pounds for an Xbox 360 to simply play one game. To...

Colin McRae: DiRT 2

The original _Dirt_ is one of my favourite driving games of all time; it’s incredible sense of speed, the precision driving required and it’s general realism made it an enjoyable title that kept me glued to my 360 for at least a couple of months. Although I enjoyed all the...
