God of War III – just uttering those few words raises the interest level of any gamer, regardless of whether they are PS3 owners or not, such is the legend of the franchise thus far.
But does the latest and final leg of Kratos’ story offer the experience that PlayStation 3 users crave, or is it a case of dressing the same old game in new clothes?
Never let it be said that war isn’t a complex, demanding beast. Especially war on multiple fronts.
Greed Corp., Amsterdam-based W!Games’ inaugural PSN game replete with multiple layers (literally) of nuance and precarious balance, could be used as testimonial evidence of this opening statement.
When Mega Man 9 was first revealed, the gaming community was left in shock due to the 8-bit design. After the game was released, it was clear that going old-school was more than just a gimmick. For the first time in years, fans were given one of the best entries in the Mega Man series.
Capitalizing on the success of Mega Man 9, Capcom has delivered another retro-styled Mega Man game. This time, the NES visuals and gameplay in Mega Man 10 are not as surprising as they were in 2008.
Has the nostalgia worn off or is Mega Man 10 a sequel that is truly worthwhile?
SEGA are set to enter into the world of cartoon kart racing with Sonic and SEGA All Stars Racing. In a genre dominated by a certain Italian, can their first attempt stand it’s ground?
First we got the Lost in Nightmares DLC, a trip through memory lane filled with classic Resident Evil surprises and the new yet not too difficult Guardian of Insanity enemy. Now we get the Desperate Escape DLC, a complete 180 from the former where you’ll find yourself flooded with every type of Majini possible and will be begging for a nuke, even if it means your untimely death.
Experienced veteran Jill Valentine and BSAA agent Josh Stone must escape the Tricell facility while Chris and Sheva go after Wesker. Be prepared to put up a fight as these Majini want you to stay forever. The developers created Desperate Escape as a challenge for gamers and boy, what a challenge it is.
Nippon Ichi Software and Hit Maker team up to bring another RPG exclusively to the PS3. Last Rebellion tells the classic story of a clash between two opposing forces. In this case, it’s between two gods, Formival and Meiktilia whose powers are transferred to humanity in the form of Blades and Sealers.
Unfortunately, the game had the unpleasant luck of releasing on February 23rd in the United States, the same date as Heavy Rain, and will be released on March 26th in Europe. In fact, unless your name is either Lightning or Kratos, we wouldn’t suggest releasing a game in the near future.
Still, it’s been a while since our last RPG adventure and Last Rebellion features classic open world exploration and turn-based battles, so we’re keen on giving it a go. It’s time to see if the game can hold up against the heavy competition.
Age of Zombies is the latest mini from Halfbrick, the Aussie team behind PSN title Blast Off. The game has Barry Steakfries, the badass protagonist, travelling through various ages of time, blasting through hoards of zombies as he attempts to stop his evil nemesis Professor Barry Brains.
There is nothing particularly remarkable about Age of Zombies that sets it apart from the overabundance of zombie games around: dressing the zombies up as mummies or cavemen does not hide the fact that it’s another typical zombie shooter. Yet, Age of Zombies is still an incredibly moreish game that keeps clawing us back for more.
Aliens vs Predator is a game that combines two great 80s feature films together for the 21st Century.
Now the title is back and reimagined for 2010, the first time we have seen a full game since 2007’s awful film Aliens vs Predator: Requiem.
Lost in Nightmares is the first of two scheduled DLC packages that expand the story of Resident Evil 5, while upgrading the current Mercenaries mode with a few new playable characters.
Does this warrant a purchase and if so, should you download each pack individually or wait for the upcoming Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition?
Today sees the release of the latest episode in Relentless Software’s self-published Blue Toad Murder Files series on the PlayStation Store.
What is different about today’s release?
Relentless are giving the latest episode away for free to anyone who purchased the first instalment. We went to Relentless’ HQ recently to play the latest chapter to completion.
Just those two simple words have caused ripples across the gaming community since footage of a ‘casting call’ at E3 2006 became the talking point of the event.
Is this finally a game that can deal with adult themes in an effective and affective way?
White Knight Chronicles (International Edition) is a Role Playing Game developed by the brilliant minds at Level-5. Expectations are very high and it’s for a good reason. Level-5 are the developers behind great games such as Dark Cloud, Jeanne d’Arc, and Dragon Quest VIII.
In Japan, White Knight Chronicles was originally released on Christmas day in 2008. It took over a year to localize the game and many improvements have been made since its initial release.
PS3 owners have been waiting impatiently for the arrival of an epic JRPG from an established studio. Is the latest effort from Level-5 the white knight that fans have been waiting for?
Grand Theft Auto is one of the most iconic and most talked about franchises in gaming. In fact, it is one of the most talked about across the entertainment industry.
It has also been one of the top controversial franchises of the last decade, from the infamous Hot Coffee mod in San Andreas, to the general portrayal of sex, drugs and violence.
It arrived onto the PS3 and Xbox 360 as one of the most anticipated games of all time.
The PlayStation Video Store first came to our attention back at E3 2008, when it was simultaneously announced and launched during the Sony press conference.
It took until November 2009 for the Video Store to hit European shores, so we decided to take it for a little more than the usual test drive and see if we could live on just the Video Store for our movie viewing needs for a month.
Here’s the story of what happened…
Welcome to the PS3 Attitude Retro Review, where we take another look at titles that were released at least six months ago and discover whether they still ought to garner your attention. This time, it is the turn of LittleBigPlanet.
It’s hard not to think about Double Dragon when playing Revenge of the Wounded Dragons. The characters look similar, the story is basically the same, and both are side-scrolling beat ’em ups.
With an outdated formula that was successful in 1987, will Revenge of the Wounded Dragons keep you interested and entertained from start to finish?
The Olympic Games are a celebration of competition, sportsmanship and pride from all countries around the globe. Every two years, the best athletes gather to compete in a variety of sports, alternating between summer and winter events. Come February 12, the 2010 Winter Olympics will commence in Vancouver, Canada.
SEGA gives us the opportunity to participate in the 2010 Winter Games since most of us are not likely to ever compete in the Olympics. Vancouver 2010 lets players compete in 14 different events including alpine skiing, speed skating, and luge. Do you have what it takes to bring home the gold?
If the old adage that sex sells is true, then Platinum Games’ Bayonetta must be having a fire sale.
The latest from the man who gave us Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe and Okami, Hideki Kamiya has labelled his witch starring action romp Bayonetta as the game he always wanted to make.
If such is the case, it’s safe to assume Kamiya-san has a penchant for three things in life: highly-sexed women, the supernatural instilled with a heavy dash of religious overtone, and action. Action that can literally cause eyeballs to extend out from their sockets in disbelief.
Last week, as many of you following the #MAG256 tag on Twitter will know (and if you’re not following @PS3Attitude, now would be a good time to do so), we and 127 other gamers were invited to try out MAG.
A mixture of journalists and community members battled it out through the day, leading up to a 256-player match against Zipper, the developers behind the new FPS on the block.
Whilst we received our review copy of the game the very next day, the servers to allow play weren’t switched on at the time, so we have decided to do something a little different with our MAG review.
