EyePet & Friends and Start the Party! Save the World – The PS3 Attitude Reviews

It’s just over a year since the launch of the PlayStation Move, and, in the last few weeks, a new wave of titles has been released for the motion controller. Two of these games are EyePet & Friends and Start the Party! Save the World, both of which are sequels to previous Move-enabled games.

So, how do they play?

Saints Row: The Third – The PS3 Attitude Review

Saints Row 2 was released just over three years ago, and since then the development team at Volition Inc. has had one question on its mind; how can we make the series even crazier? It turns out the answer to that question is Saints Row: The Third, which defies realism in pretty much every way, and is perfectly happy with its status as a video game.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – The PS3 Attitude Review

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is the third title in the action/adventure series to be released in as many years, and the fourth overall on home consoles. You’d think gamers would have had enough of the franchise by now, but Ubisoft has managed to beat the odds once with Brotherhood, which was released last year to universal acclaim, so can they do it again with Revelations?

Need for Speed: The Run – The PS3 Attitude Review

False starts: the nitrous, coast-to-coast racer, Need for Speed: The Run has had a few. The first one happened at its unveiling at E3, when the debut trailer worryingly focused on the game’s, erm, innovative QTE-led cutscenes. The trailer, unsurprisingly, was met with a mixture of confusion and bafflement.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – The PS3 Attitude Review

When it comes to the video game industry, the Call of Duty franchise reigns supreme, specifically the Modern Warfare series. How many other games can say they’ve sold millions of copies in a single day or had the biggest launch in entertainment history? Yeah, not many.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 continues to hunt for Russian Ultranationalist Vladimir Makarov in its main single-player campaign and further enhances its already top-notch multiplayer experience. Has the gameplay changed enough over the last iteration, or does the old “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” saying still ring true?

Dungeon Siege III: Treasures of the Sun – The PS3 Attitude Review

Dungeon Siege III: Treasures of the Sun – The PS3 Attitude Review

Dungeon Siege III was released to lukewarm reviews in June but the game is still going strong with fans of the dungeon crawling genre. For those of you who like to complete every quest and find every item, the Treasures of the Sun DLC opens an entirely new environment to explore; the Aranoi Desert. With it come an increased level cap, new abilities, and a new enchanting system.

Is this enough to once again venture into the deep dark caverns of the game, or has this Legion finally met his match?

Toki Tori – The PS3 Attitude Review

Created by Netherlands-based developer Two Tribes B.V., the puzzle platform game Toki Tori was originally released way back in 2001 for the Game Boy Color. Since then, the title has been through many graphical upgrades and appeared on a huge number of different formats, and next week, over ten years after the game’s initial release, PlayStation Network users can finally give it a play it too!

Hydrophobia: Prophecy – The PS3 Attitude Review

Hydrophobia: Prophecy – The PS3 Attitude Review

Very few games have polarised players quite as much as third-person action/adventure Hydrophobia. Upon its original release in September 2010, Hydrophobia received an exceptionally mixed reception from both critics and gamers alike, with some players praising the title’s huge ambition, and others slating the mediocre voice-acting and clunky controls.

However, rather than move onto something new, Dark Energy Digital did something not many other developers do, and listened to the feedback, whether good or bad. Last week’s PlayStation Store update saw the release of Hydrophobia: Prophecy, a heavily reworked version of the original game, with new sections, numerous changes to the story, and PlayStation Move support.

So, was Dark Energy correct to not give up on Hydrophobia, or was all their effort in vain?

Cho Aniki, Shienryu & Sonic Wings Special – The PS3 Attitude Review

For a while now, MonkeyPaw Games have been busy bringing Japanese PSone titles to the North American PlayStation Store. Last month, the company brought their import service to the European Store, beginning with the release of a trio of old-school arcade-style shooters: Cho Aniki, Shienryu, and Sonic Wings Special.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – The PS3 Attitude Review

After almost a year of waiting, the release of Uncharted 3 is imminent. After the success and praise of Uncharted 2, the hype has just gone up and up. Can Naughty Dog live up to it?

The answer is yes.

inFamous: Festival of Blood – the PS3 Attitude review

Halloween may have come and gone, but inFamous: Festival of Blood is still available on the PlayStation Store for those who haven’t yet had their fill of macabre antics for this year. Originally announced at Gamescom in August, Festival of Blood is a bite-size title in the inFamous series.

This standalone adventure offers a tongue-in-cheek take on the inFamous universe. The game opens with Zeke attempting to impress a woman at a bar, by telling her an elaborate (and completely made-up) story about one of his and Cole’s exploits.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution The Missing Link DLC – The PS3 Attitude Review
Tuesday, 25 Oct, 2011 – 17:57 | 2 Comments
Deus Ex: Human Revolution The Missing Link DLC – The PS3 Attitude Review

Deus Ex: Human Revolution explores the potentially limitless possibilities of human augmentation. It also brought moral decisions that would ultimately shape the world Adam Jensen would help create, whether for good or bad. Still, the game left plenty of unanswered questions by the end and had fans clamoring for more.

Human Revolution’s first piece of DLC comes in the form of The Missing Link, a new chapter that fills the three day gap in the story where Adam is a stowaway aboard a cargo ship on its way from Heng Sha to Singapore. What occurs on the cargo ship will expand further upon the conspiracies and social constructs explored in the main game. Question is, is it worth its $15 price tag?

Batman: Arkham City – the PS3 Attitude review

In 2009 Rocksteady Studios rescued the superhero genre from the depths of mediocrity and disappointment with Batman: Arkham Asylum. Making it safe for fans everywhere to thrust themselves into Bruce Wayne’s cape and cowl without hesitation.

While in development, the narrative surrounding Batman: Arkham City (BAC) evolved to whether or not it could surpass the lauded achievements of the original. Having spent considerable time with Arkham City we can lay to rest any and all reservations concerning Rocksteady’s second tour with the Dark Knight with a decisive yes.

1000 Tiny Claws mini review and giveaway (US PSN only)

Is it just me or is 1000 Tiny Claws a creepy name? It evokes horrible thoughts of dark places and thousands of little insect munching away at my tender flesh. Maybe I should have left that for the therapist…

Rage – the PS3 Attitude online review

Rage has given us one of our most enjoyable singleplayer experiences of the year, and we said as much in our in-depth review last week. This week, however, we’re focusing on multiplayer and trying to decide if Rage is as much fun with company as it is alone.

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken – the PS3 Attitude Review

Of all the creative mediums at human disposal there are only a handful in which a badass, gun-toting, jet-pack flying, penguin killing rooster could pass as an effective protagonist, thankfully video games is one of them.

Rage –  the PS3 Attitude review

There is a point in Rage when it stops being a solid FPS and becomes a great one. That moment occurs about two or three hours in, just when our recent hands-on preview ended.

Up to that point, we had been ushered down narrow paths and asked to do routine objectives. It was a confident and accomplished introduction to the game, and it did give us a good grounding for what was to come later, but it felt like it was keeping a tight rein on us.

Supremacy MMA – the PS3 Attitude review

At a glance, you would be entitled to think that Supremacy MMA’s main “attraction” is its grimy underground environments, ugly menacing fighters and bone-crunching violence; it is a hardcore game for those who think EA’s MMA and UFC Undisputed are too soft. However, once you strip away all of the gruesomeness and awful metal music, you find something deeper and even quite thoughtful underneath.

Resistance 3 – The PS3 Attitude Review (Part 2: Multiplayer)

We’ve already established that Resistance 3 has a superb singleplayer campaign, but, once it’s over, realistically you’ll be spending most of your time with the game’s multiplayer modes. Since the first game’s release in 2006, the Resistance series has been at the forefront of online multiplayer experiences on PlayStation 3, so how does Resistance 3 compare?
