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"!
