LA Noire Review

When I was younger, I often tried to imagine what the ultimate game would be: combining together everything from a flight sim to a fighting game, with RPG elements and puzzles too. The problem, once I started thinking about it, was that if you weren’t good at any one part of the game, then it’d ruin it for you.

Brink Review

New contributer Angry Steve kicks off his career here at Jaded Eye with a look at the new Bethesda/Splash Damage FPS title, Brink. Take it away Steve…

Mortal Kombat Review

Back in 1992, a new challenger arose to take on Street Fighter 2’s monopoly of the arcade, in the form of Mortal Kombat. A decidedly American affair (as opposed to SF2’s decidedly Japanese flavour), it set out its stall to give fighting gamers a more ‘grown up’ playing experience.
