Polar Panic – The PS3 Attitude Review

If you have read any review of Polar Panic by now, you’ve probably seen something about how it’s relate to the classic SEGA game Pengo. While the game does feature the same ice block pushing mechanic, it is also so much more than that.

You play as Polar, a polar bear living in the Arctic whose home is being threatened by the evil Mr. Big and his Globoco corporation. They plan to use their massive machines to drill for oil and other natural resources, forcing Polar and his family to either leave or die.

It’s up to Polar to stop Mr. Big and the hunters from destroying the Arctic by using any means necessary. Ice blocks, dynamite crates, and rolling barrels are just a few of the tools you’ll need to crush the evil Globoco.

Braid – The PS3 Attitude Review

Independent games tend to have either a love or hate relationship. They are often artistic representations of their creators that push innovation rather than heroic storylines featuring superior graphics. Simple yet elegant, these games invoke certain adoration among its players.

Blue Toad Murder Files Episodes 1 & 2 – The PS3 Attitude Review

After great success with the Buzz! franchise, Relentless Software have stepped into the puzzle and mystery genre with PlayStation Network title Blue Toad Murder Files.

The developers, who are also publishing the game themselves, have divided the title into episodes and right now you can download the first two.

We decided to take the opening iterations for a spin and because it’s targeted towards groups of friends and family, we thought it was a good excuse to bring them along too.

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game – The PS3 Attitude Review

James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game – The PS3 Attitude Review

Never before has a game been both simultaneously hindered and yet inherently blessed by its source material than James Cameron’s Avatar – The Game.

On one hand Avatar suffers from the recurring hex almost all movie tie-ins bear; an immovable launch deadline thanks to the movie it is so intrinsically bound to, matched only by the difficulty of imparting interactivity and freedom into what is – at its core – something both passive and finite.

Of course, the other hand in this equation belongs to one of the master craftsmen of his generation. A visual maven who has birthed some of the most memorable and well-loved science-fiction characters ever. Hence there is a complex duality to Avatar that raises an interesting quandary; how much of what works in the game can be attested to the source material, and how much that doesn’t work is because of that very same property?

Assassin’s Creed II – The PS3 Attitude Review

Assassin’s Creed was an interesting game for so many reasons.

Whether it was the incessant hype machine that rolled into every town, the column inches gained by the (mostly) bulletproof Jade Raymond, the promise of new and interesting game mechanics or the simple fact that it was the second fastest selling brand-new IP in video game history, everything that surrounded the game was intriguing.

Ultimately, however, the game itself didn’t deliver fully on all these promises and was labelled ‘repetitive and monotonous’ by many. So how has the sequel, backed up by a much lower-key but more focused marketing offensive, measured up?

The Ratchet and Clank games have spawned across the PS2, PSP and PS3, and so with the huge number of titles on the franchise’s belt, there is little room available for for innovation.

The Sony Ericsson Aino is the first mobile phone to include the PSP’s Remote Play functionality, allowing you access to your PS3 whilst you are away from home.

TMNT: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled – The PS3 Attitude Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time is hailed as one of the best arcade of all time. Naturally, it would only be a matter of time before it was ported to the PS3 and Xbox 360 as a downloadable title, complete with a graphics update and leaderboards.

So is Turtles in Time a proper remake of a classic or did the arcade game reach its pinnacle back in 1992 with the SNES edition?
