  • Hawk: Reviews smacked RIDE "before they even tried it"

    Tony Hawk RIDE’s not very good. Look. Hawk himself reckons the scores are hokum, though. The reviewers just didn’t give the peripheral-based game a chance, apparently. “They were ready to discredit it before they even tried it, and if it didn’t play exactly how they imagined it… then they passed it off,” Hawk told the […]

  • Avatar gets rough review reception

    Not looking so amazingly hot for James Cameron’s Avatar, with the game picking up some less than impressive review scores, as you can see here. It’s out on Friday. Round-up: Team Xbox – 7.1/10 Videogamer – 7/10 IGN – 6.8/10 IGN UK = 6/10 1UP – C+ Gamespot – 5.5/10 Eurogamer – 5/10

    IGN AU’s gone live with the world’s first review for EA’s The Saboteur, giving the Parisian WWII actioner 8.2/10. “While it’s a little rough around the edges we enjoyed this game more than we thought we would,” said the site. “It’s far from perfect, but it’s great to see Pandemic going out with a bang.” […]

  • Edge gives Bayonetta 10, Dragon Age 5

    The latest Edge scores are up on NeoGAF (thanks, Anders), including a 10/10 for Platinum’s Bayonetta. Dragon Age fared less well: it got 5/10 for the 360 version.

  • IGN gives Oz Left 4 Dead 2 version 5/10

    Looks as though the censored Left 4 Dead 2 version that finally made release in Australia is a bit… rubbish. IGN AU’s given it 5/10. Apparently the game’s been compromised by “glitchy-looking edits” and “is a massive step backwards from the original.” To be clear, “if you can get your hands on an unedited version […]

  • First Assassin's Creed II review hits the stands, is a 9/10

    OXM may not have a fancy-pants past-rewriting animus at its disposal, but the magazine’s still making some history of its own with the world’s first ever Assassin’s Creed II review. So, how’d Ezio and co. stand up under OXM’s unfaltering scrutiny? Pretty well, as it turns out. The numbers nine and ten were apparently mentioned […]

  • Ratchet & Clank demo this Thursday, first review up

    A Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time demo will release on PSN this Thursday, as detailed on US PS Blog. Good news. Better yet, this is the first of two demos, for some reason. “In this demo, you’ll take get to take control of Clank as he explores the Great Clock learning more […]

  • PES 2010 reviews go up, EG goes with 7/10

    Looks as though this year’s football race is won in terms of quality. The first PES 2010 scores are up, and from first impressions FIFA 10’s stuck one well and truly in the back of the net. Here’s the lot so far. If you’ve got one you want posting, stick it in the comments. Eurogamer […]

  • EG gives Brutal Legend 8/10

    After the first IGN-exclusive Brutal Legend reviews yesterday, EG’s gone live with an 8/10. Snip: It’s probably Brutal Legend’s characters that win out. Since the days when he provided dialogue options for Guybrush Threepwood, Schafer’s secret skill has been to people his games with lovable oddballs who quickly start to feel like friends, creating bonds […]

  • First Saw reviews don't exude promise

    Saw: The Videogame is apparently on the verge of release; IGN’s just given it 7.5/10 in its first review. It doesn’t sound like the most amazing thing in the world: It would have taken a lot more polish and time to put Saw up there with the kings of the survival horror genre. But the […]

  • Forza 3 reviews go live, all looking rosy
