Max Payne 3 Review: Welcome Back Old Friend     Max Payne 3 Review: Welcome Back Old Friend
Too often you walk away from a game feeling the artist's original vision was negotiated by accountants and other studio big wigs. At that moment you realise something good could've been great, but the people pulling strings held other interests.

Metal Gear Solid Brings The Greatest Saga To An HD Screen     Metal Gear Solid Brings The Greatest Saga To An HD Screen
I was first exposed to the Metal Gear Solid saga as a child. I sat before the TV with my eyes wide open, completely blown away by the culminating efforts of an intricate narrative, before-its-time game-play and limitless cinematic appeal.

Review: Gemini Rue Is An Atmospheric Masterpiece Of Pixels     Review: Gemini Rue Is An Atmospheric Masterpiece Of Pixels
For those who rue the day LucasArts abandoned its point and click adventure prowess to flog its star-themed cash cow, an indie developer refreshes the dusty genre with a noir-infused, dramatic sci-fi thriller that does the field justice.

Review: Left4Dead Meets Heat Equals Payday: The Heist     Review: Left4Dead Meets Heat Equals Payday: The Heist
Take a little bit of the bank heist from the movie Heat with the non-stop, shoot-'em-up onslaught of Left 4 Dead and you get the underdog title of 2011, Payday: The Heist.

Review: SteelSeries Sensei Mouse Is A Sleek Desktop Companion With Hidden Charms     Review: SteelSeries Sensei Mouse Is A Sleek Desktop Companion With Hidden Charms
The Sensei is a great all-purpose mouse, laden with customisation tools, guised as a gaming mouse and hidden under a rather cheap-looking exterior. It's not the flashiest in its class, but it does what any great mouse does and handles itself gracefully over a desktop, almost absentmindedly to the user under the palm of the hand.

Review: Is CoD Modern Warfare 3 Just A Rebadged MW2?     Review: Is CoD Modern Warfare 3 Just A Rebadged MW2?
Modern Warfare 3 slaps on layer upon layer of superlative until you become desensitised - action gaming at its self-degrading finest.

Review: Need For Speed's Return To Addictive Arcade Racing     Review: Need For Speed's Return To Addictive Arcade Racing
There are countless Need for Speed titles, but of them the great ones I can count on one hand. Does Need for Speed: The Run have what it takes to deserve a place amongst its thrilling forefathers?

Review: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Scraps The RPG Rulebook     Review: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Scraps The RPG Rulebook
Skyrim is easily the longest game you'll play this year, but does Bethesda's long-awaited RPG have what it takes to take the same game-of-the-year crown that Fallout 3 once nabbed?

Review: Arkham City Fulfils Every Gamer's Batman Fantasy, Except For One     Review: Arkham City Fulfils Every Gamer's Batman Fantasy, Except For One
Batman has some pretty big rubber boots to fill after the acclaimed Arkham Asylum - does Akrham City deliver?

Review: SteelSeries Desmo Gaming Glasses Prep Your Eyes For Longer Play     Review: SteelSeries Desmo Gaming Glasses Prep Your Eyes For Longer Play
The Desmo glasses are a pair of lightweight, rimless frames that minimise eye strain through some clever lenses and a simple yet effective design. Whether they're worth the US$99 RRP is debatable though - it all depends on how square-eyed and vision-conscious you are.

Review: Can The HP Phoenix Face Up To Alienware For Gaming PC Prowess?     Review: Can The HP Phoenix Face Up To Alienware For Gaming PC Prowess?
HP has risen from the marketing ashes of its Personal Systems Group debacle with a high-end PC befitting its name. The HP Phoenix is a high-powered machine to fuel your gaming addiction while making your desktop just a little bit fancier. It throws some top-tiered components into an alluring yet domineering black and red-lit case that does well in league with other gaming chassis.

Review: SteelSeries Siberia V2 Headset Is Gamer's Best Friend     Review: SteelSeries Siberia V2 Headset Is Gamer's Best Friend
SteelSeries marks its 10 year anniversary with a simple redesign of its classic Siberia V2 headset. The colour scheme's changed, but the characteristic, dynamic sound quality geared at gamers sits at the same top notch.

Review: Is Rage A Stunning Shooter Or A Deadweight RPG?     Review: Is Rage A Stunning Shooter Or A Deadweight RPG?
id Software has been perfecting the first person shooter since the days of pixelated sci-fi horror with Doom in 1993. The pixels have shrunk dramatically, but the gore still packs the same punch today with their latest shooter adventure fusion, Rage. But those looking for a deep, multi-layered RPG with vast environs to explore, settlements to pillage or stats to rampart will be sorely disappointed.

Review: Dead Space 2 Is So Scary You'll Cry     Review: Dead Space 2 Is So Scary You'll Cry
Dead Space 2 picks up from where Dead Space reluctantly closed, picking up that same legacy on the way. A renewed slew of ghoulish aliens are back and lining up for frantic disembowelment and frenetic limb-chopping, but not before they make you mess yourself with some of the most chilling survival horror since Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
