Nintendo 3DS

The Nintendo 3DS is not a revolutionary console, but with a sturdy design and a 3D effect that does indeed work, it's a gadget that will no doubt be hugely successful.

Crysis 2

It's been a long time since a FPS game really clicked with me. Years ago, I enjoyed some of the classics such as Medal of Honor Frontline and the original Aliens vs. Predator. Since then, for various reasons, I've been uncomfortable with the directio...

Dragon Age 2

Dragon Age 2 is not Dragon Age. It seems like an obvious truism, but given the backlash Bioware's sequel has suffered, it is a statement that people seem to need reminding of.

Warriors: Legends of Troy

As a games critic, there are a few 'kisses of death' that will kill your credibility pretty quickly. There's accepting bribes for good reviews, accidentally confusing Mario and Sonic, and giving a Warriors game a positive review.

Alien Breed 3: Descent

Alien Breed is a franchise that's been around for a long time, and, really, it's the kind of game that will always have an audience. Shooting Aliens in confined corridors is a visceral thrill -- after all, that's what has kept the Aliens movie franch...

Killzone 3

The first-person shooter genre is oversaturated, and, moreover, virtually every publisher out there has dedicated big money to coming up with a blockbuster FPS, so it's oversaturated with quality.

Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers

It only took a year, but Magic: The Gathering -- Duels of the Planeswalkers -- one of the most consistently popular Xbox Live online games -- has come to the PlayStation Network. For those without an Xbox, it's a must-have.

Front Mission Evolved

Robots and mechs are cool. It’s a fact of life that saw the rise of Transformers, and is so ingrained in our culture that even a Michael Bay/Megan Fox tag team failed to kill our fascination with big metal things ripping into each other.

Rabbids in Time

If there’s one thing the Wii does well (or, at least, does a lot of), it’s mini-game collections. Whether it’s Mario and the gang running around a board in Mario Party, Wario getting crazy in Warioware, or the unadulterated quality of Medieval Games,...

Tron: Evolution

It's a sad sign that you're getting older when you have fond memories of Tron, but your younger co-workers just give you a blank look at the name.

Michael Jackson: The Experience

Michael Jackson was a better dancer than singer. Thankfully Ubisoft realised this, and Michael Jackson: The Experience is a dancing game, with not a whisper of karaoke to be found.

Mubi movie streaming service

Keen on catching up on the latest films out of Africa? What about some classic Japanese cinema, or the 1903 version of Alice in Wonderland? It's a bit difficult to do by just wandering into a DVD store, but thanks to Mubi on the PlayStation 3, watchi...

Blacklight: Tango Down

Medal of Honour, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Front Mission Evolved, Goldeneye (if you count the Wii): there's been a wealth of very high profile first-and third-person shooters that have hit consoles in time for Christmas this year.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
