Cabela’s Big Game Hunter Review

Cabela’s Big Game Hunter Review

If you've ever tried one of those pro buck hunter games in the arcade, you know how surprisingly enjoyable hunting games can be. They lure us gamers in with the promise of points and the thrill of the chase. And, let's be honest, it can be quite novel to be shooting something other than humans for a change. Cabela's Big Game Hunter is a hunting sim from Cabela and Activision which provides a wide variety of locales, a host of wild game to shoot, and a decent arsenal of weaponry with w…


Call of Duty®: Strike Team Review

Review Activision Publishing, Inc. By James Gilmour, 11 months, 3 weeks ago
Call of Duty®: Strike Team Review

When is a first-person shooter not a first-person shooter? When it's also a tactical third-person RTS. In an apparent effort to give iOS gamers a Call of Duty game which harnesses the full potential of the touchscreen interface, UK developer The Blast Furnace has tried to capture the best of both worlds: a fully-fledged Call of Duty FPS which also let players command their squad from a drone's-eye view. The result is a Call of Duty: Strike Team, a game which tugs you in two different…

The Bowling Dead Review

The Bowling Dead Review

[This title is featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 30th of November, 2012] It's a thin premise, but The Bowling Dead by Slant Six Games and Activision places you in the unusual position of a zombie apocalypse survivor who discovers a bowling ball that seems to be the only thing that can stop them. Obviously the first part isn't new, but the second part results in a strangely addictive title. It's a sort of mash up between Full Fat's Zombie Flick and a basi…

PITFALL!™ Review

PITFALL!™ Review

For something like a 30th Anniversary you'd think Pitfall would be given a much larger 'hurrah' - the game has gone through differing types of 'remakes' over the years, but now the game has been reduce to an auto-runner. Don't get me wrong, it's a perfect match and ultimately works in Pitfall's favor, but with so many competitors it ran the risk of slipping under the radar. I guess that's the power of a name like Pitfall for a company like Activision - you just can't help but bring at…

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

For those yet to try out Call of Duty's interestingly themed co-op addition to their main series, the 'Zombies' titles represent a fun and frantic distraction from an otherwise serious first person shooter. Its initial conversion to the iOS platform was far from well received and its 'sequel' was appreciated even less, but is the third time a charm for Activision's Black Ops Zombies? The game tasks you with the seemingly impossible challenge of defending a map from its unholy attacker…

Geometry Wars™: Touch Review

Geometry Wars™: Touch Review

Plenty of other developers have taken a crack at trying to recapture the magic of Geometry Wars and some have certainly come close, but nothing quite manages to come close as the real thing. Now you can play it almost anywhere thanks to a recent update from Activision that added native support for the iPhone as well. There are a couple options for controlling your ship, with the traditional twin-analogue setup being the most obvious addition along with the choice of using single-stick…

Guitar Hero Review

Guitar Hero Review

It seems that when it rains at Activision, you can expect triple-A titles to pour on to the App Store. The (in)famous Guitar Hero franchise has landed on the iPhone and has almost literally blown the opposition out of the water with years of rhythm game design being packed in to this dense little App. Gamers will get a chance to play the guitar and bass in this title, giving you more bang for your buck as you attempt to master each instrument and unlock new instruments and outfits to…

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 by Activision and developers Polarbit has improved on what was already a decent, if out-dated Mario Kart style racer, making it a great, fun arcade experience for your iPhone. Players have the option of choosing between tilt or virtual steering controls via the menu and both work fantastically, providing smooth control for each kart. Those after more finesse might prefer the virtual controls, but the tilt controls do make the game far more entertaining to…

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D is a new port of the console kart racing game released for the iPhone.  The gameplay is the same, players choose a character, race through various tracks against computer opponents, launching attacks and taking shortcuts in order to secure the win. The racing itself is made a lot easier due to the fact that the karts automatically accelerate without any input from players, leaving you free to concentrate on the race and your opponents. Players must s…
