Batman: Vengeance

Batman: Vengeance is an action-packed hunt for the Joker and company through the mean streets of Gotham City, as inspired by the Warner Bros cartoon show. The 3D visual and audio style is topnotch, and the cinemas are a blast - even if some camera views are awkward and some areas are a little too dark and muddy.

The workmanlike controls take some pain out of manoeuvring the cam and manage the energetic, er. com-Bat nicely. You nimbly flip between third-person and first-person action, and Batman displays some cool moves, including long gliding leaps using his cape and an awesome skydiver-like freefall. Basic hand-to-hand fighting consists of just simple, two-button jamming for kick and punch, but there are a few combos and power moves. The first-person action is more versatile, using a Bat arsenal that includes the Bat-grapple and, of course, Batarangs.

There's much to praise about the effort behind this rough-hewn but imaginative game. If you're a fan, you might tackle this tale of the Dark Knight with a vengeance.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
