Mirror’s Edge

Mirror’s Edge reflects developer DICE’s Scandinavian roots. Graphically it’s all clean lines, with washed-out colours and minimalist design; while aurally there’s an ethereal, Röyksoppian soundscape that gives way to thudding techno in the myriad of chase sequences that litter the game.

Dead Space

Remember the promo line for the classic sci-fi film, Alien? “In space no one can hear you scream.” It’s too bad your family members can’t say the same when you’re glued to your television playing Dead Space.

Call of Duty: World at War

Treyarch doesn’t have it easy. The California-based developer’s track record is worse than Elton John’s back catalogue and, according to the vitriol flying around games forums, it is regarded by many as Infinity Ward’s dumber, slightly special cousin. Of course, it hasn’t done itself too many favours either.

NBA Live 09

Since the NBA franchise is not exclusive, EA has had to compete against other publishers such as 2K Sports and Sony in the console world for the NBA basketball experience.  2K Sports has been a consistent leader in the space but EA is trying its hardest to dethrone the champ.  We saw a big improvement with last year’s NBA Live 08.  It wasn’t perfect but it finally became a worthy competitor to the NBA 2K series.  This year EA dishes out some new features in its efforts to pull ahead of 2K Sports.  Let’s see if they have succeeded or not.
