Fast Five the Movie: Official Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Fast Five the Movie: Official Game Review

Recently The Onion did a small skit about the latest car-porn film Fast & Furious 5, taking the usual pot-shot at the action extravaganza by claiming the script was written by a small child obsessed with explosions. However no one truly expects to see an action film like this for high-art; it's all about the mindless over-the-top antics, scantily clad women and tight-shirt wearing men as they defy physics for 90 minutes. So it's no surprise that Fast Five by Gameloft is an unashame…

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard Review

Having already shown their deft skills at producing great First Person Shooters on iOS devices, Gameloft have taken up the reins for the Rainbow Six franchise with the release of Shadow Vanguard. The focus on tactical awareness is much sharper than in previous titles like Modern Combat 2 and players will need to command a squad in order to carry out their missions with ghost-like silence. Gone are the days of intense pre-mission setups requiring long tedious memorization of tactical m…

Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Please Note: Due to Gameloft's new release system, the title is only free as a 'demo' with an in-app purchase unlocking the rest of the content. This does require an internet connection of some kind for your device, however given that this requires 3rd Gen or higher iOS device, this should be available in one form or another. The current release price is US$6.99 - please adjust accordingly for your region and be aware that sales/updates could affect this pricing regularly. As a genre,…

Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden FREE Review

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, then it's probably a duck. Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden is exactly what it sets out to be, a Zelda-like; and to perfectly frank, it doesn't do a bad job of it either. Despite walking a line that straddles originality and shameless parody, Gameloft's latest title remains engaging despite some questionable flaws. Jumping in to the game is relatively simple, especially for those familiar with similar 3rd person action…

Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Review

Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Review

This really must be a happy holidays for the racing fans out there given the quality of the recent releases out on the App Store and Gameloft, never one to be left behind, has also brought out Asphalt 6, the third installment of their racing series for iDevices. By now the series has started to gain some legs of its own, slowly spreading its wings as it steps out from shadow of titles like Need for Speed and Burnout. However it seems there was a bit of a misstep and Asphalt 6 has cros…

Shadow Guardian Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Shadow Guardian Review

There's an adage that goes along the lines of 'show, don't tell' and while it's applied more often to films, it's still quite relevant to video games. Gameloft clearly had this in mind when developing Shadow Guardian, but with so many points of exposition or at least explanation left up in the air, players are left with no choice but to roll with the punches. Initially players are placed in the roll of Jason Call, our so-deemed hero for the story, in a series of flashbacks to explain…

N.O.V.A. 2 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

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

A year ago the first title in the N.O.V.A. series managed to stun audiences with its incredibly sharp visuals, paired with excellent near-console quality gameplay that may have felt slavish to its inspirations, but still managed to impress regardless of this. The sequel is much the same, though the inclusion of a larger campaign; career-based online multiplay; and smarter AI opponents shows that Gameloft are serious about taking this game to the next level. Those who have played Gamel…

Eternal Legacy Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Eternal Legacy Review

Eternal Legacy by Gameloft is, unlike the gestalt would imply, a greater game than the sum of its parts. What this JRPG (Japanese RPG) flavored title represents is the genre in its most generic form and while this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it never really manages to lift above this baseline level. Most of the gameplay in Eternal Legacy takes the form of exploration and combat in the 3D realm of Algoad. Instead of random encounters, players engage in battles with roaming packs of…

Dungeon Hunter 2 Review

Dungeon Hunter 2 Review

Dungeon Hunter 2 by Gameloft doesn't so much represent a change in direction for action-RPGs on iDevices as much as it is a refinement on the title that came before it. Once again you'll take up the responsibility of an immortal in defense of Gothicus, traveling the wide and varied paths of the world until you can fulfill your destiny as its hero. Two control schemes are available for players to choose from and you can either tap directly or use a virtual stick to move around and sele…

Star Battalion Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Star Battalion Review

It seems like the release of Apple's most recent iDevices has lit a fire underneath Gameloft and while not every recent release has been a winner it's hard not to be impressed by them. Star Battalion is their latest App Store release and it's hard to express how hard I've fallen for this space fighter pilot sim. Shades of classic Lucas Arts titles like X-Wing and Rogue Squadron along with other Nintendo classics like Star Fox are immediately recognizable in Star Battalion, but instead…

Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus Review

Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus Review

UPDATE: A severe bug seems to be affecting some players, resulting in their experience being reset to zero when leaving the multiplayer menu. We'll try to find out how common this bug is and if there are any plans to resolve it. Last year Gameloft introduced their response to the modern day war theater games in the guise of Modern Combat: Sandstorm and the game was quite easily a massive boon for FPS fans with iDevices. Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus not only continues the franchise,…

Real Soccer 2011 Review

Real Soccer (or Football for those of us in normal countries) 2011 is this years update to Gameloft's sports franchise and much like the other Real 2011 titles this one attempts to take full advantage of the new graphical capabilities on offer in new iDevices. But we'll get to the graphics in a bit as first and foremost the game needs to be playable before graphics concern us. In particular this title has opted for some interesting changes in the control scheme and players will need t…

Gangstar: Miami Vindication Review

Gangstar: Miami Vindication Review

At long last the next in the Gangstar series has hit the App Store and Gameloft have once again piled in just enough tweaks and flourishes to show that they're not just taking the easy way out when it comes to sequels. Right off the bat I'm glad to say that other than the basic similarities shared by sandbox titles, this one feels right at home on the iPhone and situating the game in a 'modern' Miami setting makes it harder to make the obvious GTA comparisons. As you make your way thr…

Real Golf 2011 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Real Golf 2011 Review

After the recent release of Let's Golf 2 from Gameloft I'd have thought there would be a bit more of a cool-off between golfing titles, however here I am with Real Golf 2011 in my hands and I must say I'm not complaining one bit; it's a real killer title. Real Golf 2011 is, for lack of a better word for it, the 'adult' equivalent of the Let's Golf franchise. Gone are the whacky environments and cartoonish characters; in go the beautiful country club vistas and real life golfers. You'l…

Spider-Man: Total Mayhem Review

Coming up to breathe after playing a long session of 'Spider-Man: Total Mayhem' by Gameloft was an eye opening experience - where did the day go? With so many action-brawlers trying to make their mark on the App Store it's great to see someone finally nailing it home and with a great franchise name behind it too no less. The controls are nothing new for the genre, however Total Mayhem manages to make switching between ranged, melee and jumping attacks feel completely smooth to execute…
