HD Reviews and Previews

Reviews Round-up – way too many games!

  • James Bond: Blood Stone – not a lot of depth, but nails the feeling of Bond – 7/10
  • Create – like LittleBigPlanet, but not as good – 6/10
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops – not exactly innovative, but still extremely entertaining – 9/10

Dead Space 2 preview – FirstPlay talk to Ian Milham, the game’s Art Director, and take a look at this highly anticipated horror sequel

Homefront preview – if you thought the No Russian mission in MW2 was offensive, then this game probably isn’t for you

The Karate Kid Blu-Ray review – as far as remakes go, this is actually pretty good – 8/10
