GAME REVIEW – Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, Episode 5 – The City That Dares Not Sleep

By Marty Mulrooney

The final episode of Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse is finally upon us. A somewhat mixed season so far – in this reviewer’s eyes at least –  the City That Dares Not Sleep wastes no time making amends. It is an epic finale in every sense of the word. What’s more, the game has changed. We no longer get to play with the ‘Toys Of Power’ (nearly all of them were destroyed at the end of last episode remember) and Max is a now a lumbering giant, a monster destroying the city. This leaves Sam going solo in the more traditional Telltale mould, desperate to save his little buddy. What ensues had me grinning from ear to ear…

GAME REVIEW – Red Dead Redemption (PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360)

By Marty Mulrooney & Duncan Voice

reddeadredemption

With AMO still growing every day, it is sometimes difficult for us to get our gaming reviews out the door as quickly as we would like, especially with huge titles such as Red Dead Redemption. On the plus side, this can often give us a far more extensive amount of time than our competitors to fully complete a game and offer a clearheaded verdict once the hype-leaden dust clouds have settled. For players who have already finished the game and newcomers finally ready to bite the bullet, this multi-format review will cover RDR’s single and multiplayer modes in-depth, on both PS3 and Xbox 360.

GAME REVIEW – Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, Episode 3 – They Stole Max’s Brain!

By Marty Mulrooney

They Stole Max’s Brain! is undoubtedly the most difficult Telltale episode I have had to review for some time. It successfully showcases what the company has quite rightly became synonymous with over the past few years (amazing storylines and characters) along with some of their earlier missteps showing up too (puzzles that are too easy, the occasional glitch). The end result is an episode that still shines, just not as brightly as last month’s phenomenal effort.

ALTERNATIVE MUSINGS – Why Changing Cole For Infamous 2 Is A Bad Idea (PS3)

By Marty Mulrooney

InfamousCole

Cast your eyes above for me. See that mean looking dude? That is Cole MacGrath from 2009’s Infamous on PlayStation 3! Pretty badass huh? Well, the folks at Sucker Punch Productions obviously didn’t think so. They have decided to completely revamp the character, in both looks and voice, for the sequel. Suffice to say, I think this is a pretty bad idea…

GAME REVIEW – WET (Xbox 360)

By Stewie Sutherland

WET Cover

It was a dark, scary night… you know the kind. Most of the lights are off in the house. Somewhere outside, a noisy owl is hooting. Trees close by are shaking in the wind and scratching at the windows. Everything had been played, and played to death, so yours truly thought “I’ll see what’s available to download for free.” As you can expect, not a lot. Exhausting the XBL marketplace, I checked out the PSN store and saw it in a lonely folder, an underdog if you will: WET – The Demo.

GAME REVIEW – Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Xbox 360)

By Duncan Voice

This review actually began life as a comparison piece between Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. After getting to polishing off point though, I soon realised that BC2 is so awesome, it deserves it’s very own arrangement of words. Plus I have strong feelings of aversion toward Bobby Kotick and his merry band of minions at Activision, and such feelings were painfully obvious.
