The Amazing Spider-Man Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
The Amazing Spider-Man Review

Let us reflect for a moment and remember just how great the licensed Spider-Man games have been for the iOS - it's not hard, there has previously only been one, Spider-Man: Total Mayhem. Despite lacking free-roaming it made up for this with tightly controlled combat with multiple fighting 'combos' to master and a cheesy, but near pitch-perfect storyline for the webslinger to follow. Following up on this effort is The Amazing Spider-Man, a movie tie-in that attempts to pair Gameloft's…

Asphalt 7: Heat Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Asphalt 7: Heat Review

It seems to be taking many small incremental changes, but the Asphalt series by Gameloft is slowly approaching something akin to the coin-swallowing racers that still dominate modern arcades. Gorgeous in its presentation, utterly unrealistic in its racing, but still challenging thanks to fierce AI opponents, Asphalt 7: Heat keeps things simple, but nails the mindless fun inherent in the genre. Each of the 15 eye-popping stages feature a range of hidden, and not so hidden short-cuts th…

Men in Black 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Men in Black 3 Review

Let it not be said that all 'freemium' titles are bad - sure they have their huge flaws, but time enjoyed is time well spent. With that said, time wasted is time not enjoyed and definitely not well spent and this is where the genre comes in to contention: If you lack the motivation, then what are you playing for? Men in Black 3 slides uncomfortably in to this second problematic kind of thinking, albeit  presenting all the visual polish and flair Gameloft can muster, but it's not e…

N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

N.O.V.A. 3 (NOVA3) is not above bombast and indeed it kicks things off in an explosive and gorgeous way. What follows is most certainly Gameloft's best entry in the science-fiction FPS series, but an unrelenting series of sequences that seem incomplete or untested drag the game back from the brink of excellence. The setting is a familiar one - Earth (or what remains of it) is under attack and you as the disgruntled, gravel-voiced hero are called back (despite saying you were done help…

Shark Dash Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Shark Dash Review

After first learning about Shark Dash, one thought pinged around my mind, 'I wonder who developed this game for Chillingo/Clickgamer'... after a double-take I realized I was dealing with a Gameloft title and my world promptly fell on its head. All of this may sound melodramatic, but gamers have long come to terms with the App Store's cliches, though if Shark Dash proves anything it's that Gameloft has the chops to produce fresh and addictive games. You should know the basic formula by…

Urban Crime Review

Review Gameloft By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Urban Crime Review

Man what happened to you Gameloft? Over a year ago you were known for making polished quality titles. Sure the inspirations for these titles were lifted from other games, but they were developed with a high level of quality and were always enjoyable to play. Ever since you've switched to this freemium model, your releases have taken a drastic hit when it comes to all around polish, and Urban Crime is the latest offender. You start the game as a street thug with aspirations to climb to…

Dungeon Hunter 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Dungeon Hunter 3 Review

As a life-long gamer, sometimes it's hard to separate expectations of what a game should be from what a game can be. Allow me to clarify: Just because I expect a game to work a certain way, doesn't mean it should or indeed that it's the best way. With that said, despite still having many positive aspects, Dungeon Hunter 3 by Gameloft is a dangerous example of how many could come to see 'gaming'. iOS gamers will remember Dungeon Hunter as one of the premier Dungeon-Crawling Action-RPGs…

The Adventures of Tintin™ - The Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
The Adventures of Tintin™ - The Game Review

During the hottest of the long summer days at high school, one of the best ways to beat the heat was to score a spot somewhere in the air-conditioned library and while the time away with a humorous novel or more rarely, a graphic novel. New printed editions of Hergé's Tintin series were some of the most prized acquisitions and soon I'll be able to relive the same experience as I beat the seasonal heat while enjoying Tintin in the cinemas. The release of Gameloft's tie-in game,…

Six-Guns Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Six-Guns Review

At times its hard to know whether or not a game is meant to be taken seriously, or if it's just an elaborate piece of satire meant to be enjoyed sardonically. Six-Guns by Gameloft treads a fine-line where the developer's usual penchant for emulation is almost completely derailed by its experimental 'freemium' model of gameplay, making it perhaps the best offering in this classification while simultaneously providing very little in the way of meaningful gameplay. Freemium games have co…

Gangstar Rio: City of Saints Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Gangstar Rio: City of Saints Review

It hardly bears pointing out that the Gangstar series from Gameloft has taken its inspiration from Rockstar's GTA series, but where previous incarnations of Gangstar were happy to simply ape older generations of GTA, the latest version takes a swing at something entirely new. Unfortunately it's a swing and a miss as no matter how you look at it, Gangstar Rio: City of Saints fails to excite and inspire the same sort of sandbox fun it attempts to emulate. The problems are evident early…

Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review

If I could digress for a moment before stepping in to this review, there are times at which I wonder if parroting what already exists on larger consoles is really the way forward for iOS. While I agree that in many cases we'd otherwise not see games like this on an iDevice, at times it's hard not to feel like being a hyena tearing at the shreds of a carcass. In this way a game can feel disappointing even despite being, relatively speaking, amazing for the platform it's on. With that s…

Let's Golf! 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Let's Golf! 3 Review

The Let's Golf series from Gameloft has come to represent the casual, fun side of golfing - giving players some sense of realism paired with cute avatars, fantastic and unreal locations, and plenty of unlockables to make competitive play against friends all the more exciting. The third and latest iteration of the title doesn't change its basic tune all that much, pairing all the same elements together, but with one major twist - it's now a Freemium title. This seriously changes the fu…

Silent Ops Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Silent Ops Review

Thanks to movies, TV shows and video games there's a glamorous view of being a spy (even if it does mean enduring a bit of torture now and then). The fantasy plays on the idea of being fiercely independent and self-sufficient - surviving against the odds even when they're stacked heavily against you. Ubisoft are no stranger to the cloak and dagger world of espionage and Gameloft has in turn brought Splinter Cell to the App Store, but it's clear there was more creative gas left in the t…

9mm Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
9mm Review

While many people are able to back a knight-in-shining-armor hero in most games, the anti-hero or at least a hero with 'dirty hands' makes for a nice change of pace. Sure it's nothing new and games have long since taken to putting you in the shoes of villains and criminals, but at least it's a far cry from the usual cute-sy or noble characters to be expected on the App Store. 9mm by Gameloft shifts gears down to this gritter plateau, placing you in the shoes of John "Loose" Kannon, a c…

BackStab Review

On one hand we've already had an Assassin's Creed game on the iOS - your mileage may vary on how successful it was for you, but we got one. On the other, Gameloft have decided to give gamers what they expected to see, albeit with a pirate-y touch in BackStab. Henry Blake has been betrayed by his supposed long-time friend Kane for crimes against his people and after four years Blake is finally given the opportunity to escape his imprisonment and seek revenge. So far, so standard, but i…
