Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
RISK Review

Well here it is. The real thing. After an official partnering between Hasbro and Electronic Arts we now have the first legitimate 'RISK' title for the App Store, but was it really worth the wait when so many competitors already roaming the same territory? It's a natural question to ask, especially considering there have been variations on the 'world domination' board-game gameplay since the iPhone was released. Gameplay follows the strict basic rulings of the board game and players ca…

Skate It by EA Review

Skate It by Electronic Arts is finally here after almost two months since it was first announced and brings its unique brand of simulated skateboarding to the App Store. Instead of jabbing a variety of virtual buttons or a d-pad to pull off your tricks, players can combine swipe gestures to string together a chain of tricks. The control system has been pulled out of the Nintendo DS version and given an appropriate upgrade for the iPhone, making it more responsive than its hand-held br…

Flight Control HD iPad Review

If you've not played Flight Control by Firemint, then you might be missing out on a neat product that helped to define how line-drawing management games should feel. Thanks to the larger screen of the iPad, mastering this management game couldn't be easier and there's even a few new features to keep things interesting. For those not familiar with the gameplay, Flight Control throws you in the place of a air-traffic controller with several landing strips to manage. As aircraft enter th…

YAHTZEE™ Adventures Review

If you are or were a fan of Hasbro's scoring die game Yahtzee, then EA's iPhone port of Yahtzee Adventures offers a great new way to play an old favourite. The main adventure mode has you playing against various NPCs around the world to hone your Yahtzee skills and try to beat them all. The controls are well thought out allowing you to shake the iphone to roll the die or simply click the cup to roll them. You then click the die you wish to hold after each roll until you choose your be…

Spore™ Creatures Review

Review Electronic Arts By Luke Bartley, 4 years, 8 months ago
Spore™ Creatures Review

Spore. The mere mention of this series instantly brings thoughts of crazy looking critters eating smaller, equally crazy looking critters. This version has hit the appstore, but has failed to evolve into something very interesting. The game has you doing familiar tasks of devouring things smaller than you to increase your DNA pool, allowing you to add more body parts and become a more complex organism. There are a number of other species to interact with. Either attack creatures to wip…

Need for Speed Shift Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Need for Speed Shift Review

It's hard to put some prejudices behind and while racing games are generally fun, they also lack a lot of energy and feel like they're entirely interchangeable. Thankfully the cure to this lethargy is simple as Need for Speed Shift isn't just fast and furious, it's so good you'll be smiling in 60 seconds. One of the first solid features of the game revolves around your chosen difficulty settings. Depending on your selection features like auto-braking, steering assist, auto transmissio…

BATTLESHIP Review

BATTLESHIP Review

Electronic Arts has sunk their battleship into the appstore with their exciting animated adaptation of the classic board game. The main goal of the game is still the same, sink the enemy’s five battleships before they sink your fleet. The controls are pretty much what you'd expect and fairly easy to use. Ships are placed on the grid by selecting and dragging them into position, and players can hunt their opponents ships by tapping squares on the opposite side of the grid. The ga…
