     Surprisingly AWESOME !!!

    All you need to know is:
    AWESOME
    AWESOME
    AWESOME
    This mixes arcade shooter with your desire for speed in real world licenced cars... You have to be very strategic with your weapon choice and every race will be different because the AI opposition always get a random weapon choice... if you have the wrong weapon to cancel out an enemy attack YOU WILL find yourself screaming before you get hit... LOL

    Totally edge of your seat stuff this... AWESOME !!

    After every race I found myself saying out loud, "This is a great game !".

  2.  Only Just makes a 'pass' grade...

    Hit & miss this one guys !!! Ace Combat 6 got it bang on when it was released... and is still the banchmark for flying shooters in my my opinion.
    The first H.A.W.X. was good, the second is better BUT only just... the game has a much better mix of gameplay and the story, although fast paced, is very good.
    I still think that a good 'replay' engine should be included with every flight combat game. I expect a high percentage of gamers with a keen interest in military aviation would be playing this type of game and a good reply engine would keep us coming back for more...

    Hopefully get one in H.A.W.X. 3 ...

  3.  Laugh-out-loud funny as hell !!!

    Just seen this on Comedy Central for the first time and I gotta tell you I was laughing so hard I looked like I was crying... tears where streaming down my face...
    If you like Billy Connelly humour and you're liberally minded then you will love this guy... Very very funny guy...

  4.  EA need to be put over a knee and smacked...

    Oh dear, of dear, oh dear... Where do i start...
    I had mixed feelings towards whether i should buy this game or not after the disappointing pro street... But i fell into the hype following the polished looking video releases i downloaded on xbox live... So i decided to give ea the benefit of my doubt and bought it...
    Initially during the early staged of gameplay i was impressed but it wasn't long before the wheels fell off...
    Handling was soooooo poor that i thought my joypad was faulty so after three other joypads i figured it had to be the game...
    Your car, no matter what it is, will pinball from one side off the track to the other finding grass and dirt every time...
    Lets take the Factory Zonda with the Factory settings for this example: at slow speed or high speed your Zonda (and every other car) will bounce uncontrollably if you hit a bump...
    If you loose the back end on the track then you practically need to stop to get control...
    Drifting seems to be impossible no matter how you set up the car...
    The AI is good but 'STUPID' !!!

    Maybe it's the type of game you need a good force feedback wheel for... I don't have one so i wouldn't know... But every time i play shift i find myself saying out loud, "this game is a mess!!!!! A dreadfull mess, and i think i'll trade it for forza 3 when it is released..."

    If you buy this title then i bid you good luck with it... People will refer to this title as a true "Racing Simulator" but IT ISN'T... I suppose everyone has their own opinion as to what a simulator should do but I can tell you from experience that the cars I race don't behave like the one's in NFS Shift... So excercise caution cause if you dont then you will smash your joypad into the middle of your lovley 32" HDTV...

    By the way... it seems EA have released an update to sort out handling issues for the PS3 version so maybe there is hope for the Xbox360 version yet...

    Peace.

  5.  LIKE AN UPPER CUT TO THE CHIN... ITS A KNOCKOUT...

    Posted: 

    This is a champion sports title... I liked this game on PS2 but it's massively better on Xbox 360...
    Very satisfying in single player mode and massively funny trying to beat the ba-jeepers out of some poor dude online... or... vice-sa-versa and getting pummeled by some dude online...
    A very good title...

  6.  JUST PLAIN BORING...

    Posted: 

    Right... enough's enough... it's time for the developers to throw away the old format and introduce some new ideas and concepts if they want to keep us gamers interested in the PGR series...
    Keep the great cars and bikes but change the racing environment to a more next Gen realm...

  7.  Joypad Busting FRUSTRATING...!!!

    Posted: 

    This was a great game for the first 3hrs of play... after that things got ridiculous...!!!
    No game has ever got me annoyed to the point where I've broken a game-pad... this one did... Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...!!! Shame on me...
    If you suffer tension build up from frustrating gameplay then beware this game fellow gamers...
    I traded the game towards a new game-pad by the way...

     FINALLY... a fresh concept that works...

    Posted: 

    A BRILLIANT game this... Don't pay any attention to 2Ksucks review folks... the "disorientation" is a deliberate and brilliantly executed idea for a different sense of gameplay and it works really well...
    Few games have me gripped enough to want to finish them through to the end... Prey was the fresh piece of gaming pleasure I had been waiting for... it was a little difficult in places granted but after a little help from google the way forward was staring me right in the face, litterly...!!!
    An FAB congratulations to the developers on a great title...
    Top Marks from me...

  9.  PUT SIMPLY... STUNNING...!

    Posted: 

    The fact that this game has gone platinum speaks volumes for itself... It's definately best played on an hd tv but even when played on standard def tv the visuals are lush...
    The entire assassins creed game is super polished and has a very good learning curve and is one of the best games i've ever played... Alot of attention and care has gone into this title by the developers and this is evident in the gameplay... It's proper awe-instiring...
    If you pride your games library then add this to it... You will love it...
    10/10 From me...

  10.  SANDBOX CONTAINMENT WARNING...

    Posted: 

    I was hoping for something a little more involving in terms of gameplay and freedom... instead the developers have chosen to be lazy and dismiss any new ideas in favour of the old format in hope it brings in quick revenue...!!!
    Granted the visuals are delicious but that's where the buck stops in my opinion... I thought we where in the era of the "Super Gaming Console"...!!!... I'm a huge fan of DMC, I own all 4 DMC's on the PS2, but I'm struggling to love DMC4... Why??? simple, GTA4 set the benchmark for game content, detail, massive open environment, continuity and developers love and attention so I'm wondering just how much of the 50GB capacity Blu Ray disk is lying redundant in DMC4...!!!
    Seriously... there was so much potential for an awesome DMC4 on the PS3... maybe DMC5 will please the fans with one massive open ended world littered with detail and developers love and attention...
    This game takes nearly 30mins to install and will suck up nearly 5GB of HDD space... the background scrolling graphics are jerky too...
    The di-hard DMC fans will likely hate this review and will defend the game... newbies to Devil May Cry will most likely get bored very quickly...
