HD Reviews and Previews

Reviews Round-up – more verdicts on recent releases

  • Buzz!: The Ultimate Music Quiz – Move functionality is fun but adds little to the series – 6/10
  • Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest – children might find it fun, everyone else should avoid – 5/10
  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II – had the potential to be brilliant, but unfortunately is just repetitive – 6/10

Crysis 2 – Crysis 2’s online multiplayer is looking awesome…

Dead Space 2 – … as is Dead Space 2’s
