Gears Of War 3
14 New from
The people who have given this game less than 5 stars do not know what they are talking about.
The Campaign is awesome, will take you 14 hours or so on Hardcore and can be played with 4 others and there is also an arcade mode for each chapter for high scoring.
Horde mode has been upgraded where you have boss fights, use turrets and build fortifications such as barb wire, etc.
Beast mode is great fun. Playing as the different locust enemies is cool, but at the moment there are not enough waves (only 12).
The biggest improvment is the MP. I could never get into MP on Gears 2, but Gears 3 is great as it is more accessible and the weapons are well balanced. It also provides a casual versus mode where new players to the franchise or those who weren't good at the previous games MP, can now get to grips with it before taking on the main community.
Take this with hundreds of ribbons, medals and achievements to earn, along with special Gears events during each month, and the package as a whole is a bargain even at full price.
All in all the best game of the franchise.
Medal Of Honor: Limited Edition (with Battlefield 3 Multiplayer BETA Access)

This game is terrible. MW2 had its critics and rightly so, but it is so far ahead of this game, it is in another galaxy compared to this.
The campaign is so short it was gone in a blink of an eye. Now Multiplayer. First the controls are shocking, every time I moved the right stick (did not press in) the stupid knife came out!!!
Also, every map is Sniper City and with no kill cam to see where an enemy has fired from, the game is just not fun. At least with MW2 you can have fun and with 132,000 people on line compared to MOH 8,000 at the same time, this game will disappear into the ether very quickly, especially when Black Ops comes out.
Terrible, terrible game.

This is one hell of a racing game which is so fast it is unreal and exhilarating. I like it that there is no commentary it adds to the atmosphere of being an F1 driver and also no safety car doesn't bother me.
People moaning about the handling being twitchy, that is what an F1 car is and also is all about your set-up. Also if you have damage set to realistic and crash at high speeds then you WILL total your car.
I think people are being too harsh, the developers have had to create all the tracks from scratch, taking thousands of photo's to get every bump and undulations from every track right down to the minutest detail and the next installment shall have more detail thrown in like penalties, safety car, etc.
However, this is one fantastic game and is going to ebb my life away. Go buy!!!!

This game is so much fun, offline and online, it's ridiculous. The online is best, with a ranking system akin to Call of Duty, but without the frustrating glitches. This is by far the most addictive game I have ever played (more so than MW2), and makes you smile when you come from last place and nick a win by blasting everyone away. BUY IT!!!!!
Aliens Vs Predator (AVP)
9 New from
I have to say that this is a fantastic game, Despite what other reviews or people have said, the graphics are very good with some excellent detail, the lighting is spot on and the audio is awesome.
The 3 campaigns are very diverse and unique but are challenging on the higher difficulty levels which make them fairly lengthy, and is the same length as a normal FPS. The multiplayer is again unique, with various modes like Predator Hunt and Infestation, as well as the normal Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes.
However, the best mode is Survivor mode, which can be played in solo or upto 4 player co-op, where you have to fight off wave after wave of Aliens, which get progressively harder and basically you have to survive for as long as possible. This mode is not a rip-off of the Horde mode on Gears of War 2 as the original 1999 AVP on PC invented this mode, and it is downright frightening.
Also, those people moaning that there is no Aiming Down Sight and Crouch controls, the reason for this is that you don't need them. If you watch all the films, you don't see people crouching or aiming down the sights of their guns when they are being hunted or confronted by 9 foot killing monsters. This not a war game it is about survival!
Also, in relation to the criticism of the lack of maps, the game's developers, Rebellion, have said that lot of DLC will be forthcoming, and the Survivor Edition, which I have got, comes with 4 extra maps, 2 for survivor mode and 2 for multiplayer, and these will be available in a months time for those who bought the normal version.
Overall, I rate this game as highly as COD: MW2 and Gears of War 2, as it is unique and different in its own way. It is gory, violent, terrifying and just as immersive as the films, and has sold really well so far I have been told, which hopefully means a sequel will be on the cards. A must buy!!!!!

First of all ignore the 2 star review below, who states that the graphics are not next gen! What???? The graphics are stunning, especially in the cut scenes, and the audio is superb, which only a next gen console could produce.
Everyone says that this is like God of War, which it is, but also meshes other idea's from other games such as Devil May Cry series, the Zelda series and even Batman: Arkham Ayslum, into one complete adventure which is rare these days.
The 360 doesn't have God of War as it is PS3 only, so I don't see what the problem is. God of War is a great game, so Vigil Games have created a game in the same mould but it has its own identity. The gameplay is fantastic and has that WOW factor of 10/10 titles despite what some critics say.
There is a huge variety of monsters, things to do (30+ hours) and upgrades to collect, and also does not have respawing enemies which infuriate in the Devil May Cry series. I have also got Bayonetta and for me they are on the same level, and the forthcoming Dante's Inferno will be also.
Do yourself a favour and buy it. Can't wait for the sequel!!!!
Star Trek (XI) (11)

Now, I'll be honest I can't stand Star Trek. However, when I saw the trailer for this film I thought wow, so obviously I went to see it, and glad I did. This is nothing like any previous Trek film, which I hated, except the one with The Borg which was good. This is up there with the original Star Wars as one of the greatest sci-fi films ever. Fantasttic action, special effects and humour, with Zachary Quinto outstanding as Spock along with Karl Urban as Doc. It was a surprise it did not not do better at the box office. A real treat for sci-fi fans, even if you didn't like the previous Trek films like me.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine

I have to say I like this film alot, Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber are excellent and the action sequences are very good. However, there are a couple of things that were lacking, namely that Ryan Reynolds was well under used. He was his usual wise cracking self and could have been used more in the film. The other thing is that the story does not explain why Wolverine and Victor Creed do not age, unless this will be explained in the sequel. Other than it is a great film that is worh watching again, and can't wait for the sequel.

This film is brilliant. I am an avid horror film fan and I have never jumped so much, or seen so many people jump, in the cinema except when I saw The Descent. This is on par with that film and has a great ending. Also this is the only film I have seen that made every hair on my body stand up. Excellent scares, great humour and well acted. Buy it, turn off the lights and be prepared to jump out your skin! Raimi is a genius.
Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen (2 Discs)

Please ignore bad reviews of this film. Without doubt this is the best action film of the year. Nothing else comes close, it is totally awesome. As with all fantasy action films, people want to be entertained at the cinema, and this film gives you more bang for your bucks than any other film in history. So what if the plot is thin, this isn't a period drama, it's an ACTION film that is meant to be OTT. Michael Bay is truly the king of action films. Go buy, enjoy and roll on Transformers 3.
