LEGO ® Marvel ™ Super Heroes: Universe in Peril Review

Review Warner Bros. By Alex Beech, 2 months, 1 week ago
LEGO ® Marvel ™ Super Heroes: Universe in Peril Review

Lego Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril struggles from the outset. A very loose port of a 3DS and Vita game, that is itself a translation of a home console experience, the whole thing feels like a compromise. The only part of the game that seems complete is the cutscenes. These comic interludes do a great job framing the action, with sharp writing that will appeal to kids and adults alike. Unfortunately, the quality of these only serves to highlight the sacrifices elsewhere in the…

LEGO® Star Wars™: Microfighters Review

Review Warner Bros. By Alex Beech, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
LEGO® Star Wars™:  Microfighters Review

The latest Lego game to hit iOS, Lego Star Wars: Microfighters, tries to combine two massive properties -  Lego and Star Wars - in the form of a vertical shump. Despite the collective might of huge brands, however, Microfighters never manages to rise above the mundane. All of the game's craft are based on the Star Wars Microfighters toys, which appear as stylishly scaled down interpretations of the movie craft they represent. There are fleets of tiny A-Wings, AT AT-Battle Tanks,…

LEGO® The Lord of the Rings™ Review

Review Warner Bros. By James Gilmour, 9 months, 3 weeks ago
LEGO® The Lord of the Rings™ Review

The LEGO games are, and always have been, about teamwork - friends coming together to assemble contraptions, collect shiny studs, and dismantle evil one brick at a time. It was only a matter of time, then, before developer Traveller's Tales turned its attention to that most famous of literary friendships, Tolkien's Fellowship of the Ring. The result is a game that provides a slick and entertaining interactive abridgement of the Lord of the Rings movies, even if the gameplay itself is…

Batman: Arkham Origins Review

Review Warner Bros. By James Gilmour, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Batman: Arkham Origins Review

The Batman found in NetherRealm's latest iOS brawler Batman: Arkham Origins is not the Batman with which you might be familiar. Sure, he's got his flying fists of vengeance, and a utility belt packed with batarangs and gadgets. And yes, he dishes out violent justice to a neverending procession of Gotham's most sociopathic. However, this Batman has limits - limits placed upon him by Arkham Origin's freemium structure. Unlike the driven, relentless crime fighter depicted in DC's comics…

Man of Steel Review

Review Warner Bros. By James Gilmour, 1 year, 2 months ago
Man of Steel Review

Having made decent cameos in both Injustice: Gods Among Us and Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, Krypton's favourite son has been in training for a brawler of his very own. It's a shame, then, that Man of Steel falls short of greatness. Instead of soaring into the clouds, this gesture-based brawler is weighed down by humdrum combat, and a disappointing lack of variety. As with Infinity Blade, fights are one-on-one bouts of gesture-powered pugilism. To let those fists of justice fly, yo…

LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes Review

Review Warner Bros. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes Review

Let this review begin by saying this is a near perfect port of Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes that was released last year on every other platform imaginable. That it finally came to iOS is no real surprise. If you enjoy the Lego games and haven't given this one a go, then you probably don't need to bother with the rest of this review. Everyone else, let's continue on. The first Lego Batman was a favourite of the series, but mainly focused on the caped crusader and his rogues gallery of…


Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

I have to admit, I like the idea of a company taking the time to whet the appetite of their fans by providing a portable version of a title they're yet to release. We saw it back at the release of Mass Effect 3, and now we're seeing it again with Injustice: Gods Among Us from Warner Bros. Of course any expectations of such a title being brought over in full, or at least as a complete brawler (albeit with a lowered roster ala Street Fighter's iOS releases) have been completely shot dow…

Bastion iPad Review

Bastion iPad Review

Having already found a home on the XBLA and PC, Supergiant Game's stunning title Bastion has leapt (from almost nowhere) on to the App Store and in particular on to the iPad. It's a welcome surprise as it doesn't simply demand players to stick with the control system of the first two releases (though it is still available), opting instead for an intuitive semi-auto fire tap and drag system instead. The only question that remains is, does it still feel like Bastion? For those unfamilia…

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review

It may have taken some time, but the LEGO Harry Potter series finally comes to a close on the iOS platform with the release of Years 5-7. The first release managed to do a neat job of packaging the hand-held version for a touch interface, but it seems to struggle at times with the somewhat more complex sequel, bringing things down a notch. Most notably, Years 5-7 covers the rather action-packed period of the Harry Potter novels, which means plenty of wave-wanding and spell-slinging. M…

Midway Arcade Review

Midway Arcade Review

Editor's Note: The following is a mini-review from the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 24th of February, 2012. The video above contains footage for the game. I feel a bit bad about cramming such a great title in to the Mini-Review section of this week's Wrap-Up, but aside from going in to nauseating detail about the controls for all the games available in the title, there's not much more to say than: If you're an Arcade junkie, get this collection. For your initial investment you're provi…

Batman Arkham City Lockdown Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Batman Arkham City Lockdown Review

For many gamers, Batman Arkham City has long since been put to bed, even if you spent the time to complete all the optional and downloadable content. So it comes as a surprise to see Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios dropping a mini-prequel to their console title this late in the proceedings, but fans like myself aren't going to look down on what is essentially a late gift (or is that an early Christmas present?). Unfortunately the timing of the game isn't terribly opportune as its…

Scribblenauts Remix Review

In what was almost a surprise release for the week, Warner Bros published the Nintendo DS famous title Scribblenauts to the App Store. Thanks to Iron Galaxy Studios and 5th Cell Media, iOS gamers can now play Scribblenauts Remix - a pint-sized mash-up of content from the first two games in the series... and do you know what that means? It means 'Adjectives'. And why do we love adjectives? Because now we can make giant winged rainbow beaver's to clear out entire forests in style. If yo…

Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters Review

As I write this Australia is yet to have the (dis?)pleasure of watching the 2011 release of Green Lantern - why we’re subjected to a two month delay is beyond my understanding, but it does provide a great opportunity to spend some time with Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters for the iOS. At first it’s nice to see the game forgoing the expected 2D/3D brawler in favor of something slightly different as you control Hal Jordan in this 3D shooter. Better still, the less-trav…

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Review

It's hard not to have been infected with Potter-fever over the last decade and while it's not a universally loved franchise, there is certainly enough fandom to justify the pairing with LEGO's popular game series. Matching the two is a recipe for obsessive compulsive gaming that stretches generations and even if you've played the title on other consoles you're likely to lose just as much time on this release. But first lets address the elephant in the corner, the controls; in particul…

Harry Potter: Spells Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Harry Potter: Spells Review

Harry Potter: Spells is an amazing experience from Warner Brothers for the iPhone that is probably worth getting for the sheer nerd factor of having a wizard duel with your friends in real time. Complex gestures will translate into spells that will harm your opponent and protect you from danger, making dueling a match of wits and accuracy that will have you waving your iPhone around till your arm hurts. Spells are activated by holding the iPhone much like a wand, then holding your thu…
