Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Review

With the usual smattering of casual golfing titles often taking the forefront on the App Store, it's nice to see a serious golf simulation title now and then and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12 certainly goes out of its way to please in this regard. Featuring smooth, realistic graphics; a tight control system with a few neat changes; and gameplay modes that vary from the ultra-casual to completely serious, it's almost the complete package for fans of golfing titles. Those familiar with recent…

Fight Night Champion by EA Sports™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Fight Night Champion by EA Sports™ Review

Where previous games in the Fight Night series by EA Sports had a far more upbeat and glitzy presentation, Champion, the fifth title in the series, is following the movie-based trend of depicting the sport in a 'grittier' fashion. If nothing else it highlights some of the brutal aspects of Boxing without glossing it over with light shows and glitter-cannons, but the iOS release does away with the new story-based 'Champion mode', leaving players with nothing more than a straight boxing…

NBA JAM by EA SPORTS™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
NBA JAM by EA SPORTS™ Review

There's only one thing holding me back from starting off the review by declaring NBA JAM by EA Sports an instant must-buy - there's no co-operative or multiplayer modes of any sort available. For a game that so lovingly recreates one of the Arcade and home console's most exciting basketball-related titles, it seems almost unforgivable that I can't share the fun with a friend or slam a firey ball of doom in the face of a random online player. Coming to grips with the controls of NBA JA…

Dead Space™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Dead Space™ Review

Haters will hate, but Electronic Arts have done a lot in my eyes to show just how progressive they've become in the gaming industry and their latest release of Dead Space for iOS devices only helps to solidify this position. With Dead Space 2 dropping on major consoles and PCs this coming week, iDevice users have an opportunity to play the events leading up to the start of the new title and it's no  Sunday picnic. The controls are limited to only one setup, however much like the…

Ultimate Mortal Kombat™ 3 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Ultimate Mortal Kombat™ 3 Review

To set the scene, the year is 1995 and the local Arcades had just upgraded from 1993's release of Mortal Kombat 2 to Mortal Kombat 3, soon to be upgraded yet again to Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. At the time, Midway were seen as some sort of evil-force incarnate for unleashing such a brutal and disturbing game on the world, but I didn't care, I was locked in a deadly bout between friends with unlimited credits and humiliating them with various Animalities, Friendship and Babeality codes t…

BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY™ 2 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY™ 2 Review

With the quality of first-person shooters on the App Store reaching higher levels with each iteration, it's getting harder to justify playing the half-finished attempts hoping to cash in on the new wave. BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY™ 2 by EA is by no means a weak franchise, but with the series being dominated by its strong multiplayer features it's a shame to see that this title has seemingly been released before its time. Thankfully the single-player campaign holds up much of this…

Real Racing 2 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Real Racing 2 Review

While I could go on about the amazing visuals, the licensed vehicles and the clever career system of Real Racing 2 by Firemint, the thing that stands out the most is the online multiplayer. Pitching in to a race with 15 other players can be exhilarating and outside of the occasional disconnected player it's a frantic environment to test out your skills. The controls for Real Racing 2 are highly customizable, with options varying between tilt and touch based steering; automatic and man…

ROCK BAND Reloaded Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
ROCK BAND Reloaded Review

With over a year since the previous release of ROCK BAND on the App Store, Electronic Arts and Harmonix have finally released their next in the series, Reloaded. Much like the first release you're given 15 songs in the initial pack and a handful of paid and free song packs on offer right away. However the real standout feature with this release is the ability to sing your way to victory. Players can choose to jump in to the role of playing the guitar, bass, drums or vocals of a band a…

Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

I know you can't see my face at the moment, but if you could you'd notice the burning hunger in my eyes, the small beads of sweat at the edges of my brow and possibly the gnawing of my lip as I attempt to concentrate while I write. I really want to get back to playing Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit. After a few breaths and a drink of water I've calmed down and I realize that it's a shame the game only features tilt controls, however barring my own stupidity the game never really fa…

Reckless Racing Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Reckless Racing Review

The top-down racer has always been a great way to feed your motor lust when you're not quite in the mood for something more serious. Jostling your way up the pack while lazily drifting your way around large winding tracks has a strangely satisfying appeal and Reckless Racing by Electronic Arts does a great job of filling that 'not quite serious' racing category just perfectly. Initially players are given the option of playing around with one of several control setups, either using a c…

MMA by EA SPORTS™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
MMA by EA SPORTS™ Review

Games that feature genuine fighting aren't easy to emulate thanks to the incredible amount of variety skill that goes in to these bouts. MMA by EA Sports is perhaps one of the best, if not the only game that tries to capture mixed martial arts in a way that feels authentic while still controlling comfortably for iDevices. To pull this off, players will need to master a handful of controls that, depending on the style of fighter you're using, will initiate one of a handful of attacks.…

FIFA 11 by EA SPORTS™ Review

Today is a day held sacred by many gamers around the world for today is the day that the new FIFA title from EA Sports hits shelves (virtual or otherwise) and flies directly in to the nearest console or electronic device near them. Yes, FIFA 11 has hit the App Store. Wrapping your head around the game's controls is going to be the first big hurdle for anyone jumping in to FIFA 11 as the days of simple pass, kick and tackle are quickly being replaced by advanced maneuvers that give you…

The Sims 3 Ambitions Review

See, this is why I don't play The Sims; I should know by now Electronic Arts have tuned their addictive gameplay to an almost demonic level and try as I might it's hard to know when to put your iPhone down. At least a low-battery notice helps somewhat! As an adaption of the second expansion pack from The Sims 3 this title is all about developing the career and life choices of one particular Sim. After choosing between some fairly standard clothing and appearance options you can start…

Mirror's Edge™ Review

Oh how I've waited for this day to arrive! It has certainly been a long time coming for the iPhone version of EA's free-running title Mirror's Edge to make its appearance, but the wait has certainly been worthwhile. For those not fortunate enough to own an iPad this will be a wholly unique experience to enjoy, with a light and easy to master control system that mirrors the original game's intent to instill a true sense of 'flow' in movement. Faith is manipulated by basic swipes, gestu…

SimCity™ Deluxe Review

If you're wondering where SimCity on the App Store went, well here it is again with a fresh coat of paint as SimCity Deluxe. Perhaps that's being unfair though as where SimCity felt absolutely tragic to play, SimCity Deluxe corrects and improves the game to near pristine levels and is certainly a welcome update from Electronic Arts. If you're unfamiliar with the SimCity series, your single aim is to create a successful city, managing its development and tweaking things to ensure your…
