Grow Up Japan - SmartDrive 2002C Review

Again we focus on more ways of reducing the noise levels of our aging server case, this time we look at a hard drive silencer from Grow Up Japan, which claims to reduce hard drive dB levels to 30, but does it work?

AcoustiPack Deluxe Review - Noise Reduction Kit

If you have an older PC and are tired of it sounding like a jumbo jet taking off, then you could check out the Acousti Deluxe noise reduction pack.

MSI NX8500GT Review

MSI have introduced a budget graphics card that features DirectX10 support, making it a good match for those who need a card designed for Vista but at the same time not wanting to spend a large amount of money.

Test PC

All the products we get in to review are normally compared or run on our test PC - which we ourselves use day-in-day-out. For this review we simply walk through each of the components that are housed in our server case (which we call Goliath), followed by some benchmark results.

Battlefield 2142 Review

BF2142 has been out for a month now, so we thought we would add our thoughts and views regarding the sequel to one of the best online experiences out there, namely BF2. After all the promises of the game being tested to death before its release, the moment we installed the product there was a patch out for it, this must be a world record and already the anticipation of having to download whopping 500meg patches sprang to mind, luckily the patches so far have been small (17mb and 20mb).

EL Matador Review

There will be loads of puns about the games name, because El Matador sounds like a Bull Fighting game and we need to set the record straight that this is a load of bull! - sigh (ed). Ok so if it's not about Bull Fighting, what is it about? Well think of Max Payne (your character viewed from 3rd person and slow mo's), mix in a touch of Far Cry style locations and add the voice over tones of a Sam Fisher clone - aka the main man from Splinter Cell and you can get an idea what the gameplay is like.

Night Watch Review

The Night Watch game is based around the plot lines of the books and film, though it explores a few of the avenues not covered in the movie adaptation, so it can appeal to those who have never seen the film.

Call of Juarez Review

We had the pleasure of playing the preview version of Call of Juarez (COJ) - Juarez pronounced with a Y - a month or so back. But for the last couple of days we have been playing the full version and all we have to say is "At last we have a Wild West shooter that not only looks amazing, but plays well to"!
