Switch's eccentric new hardware is a link to Nintendo's past in the most exciting way

An an aging gamer I've lost a lot of faith in the ability for gaming firms to really deliver something for kids that truly engages their minds outside of their screens (hence why i've bought little but Lego for our friends children for years).

But this... Nintendo we saulte you and we love you :)

Another reason to be glad I went with with smart money PS4 option over X-Box One

Shame to see such a good traditional game developer turn to the darkside of the modern wolf in sheeps clothing cash cow formulae :(

Oblivion - Shivering Isles

By extension of the quality of the world of Oblivion we had already had the pleasure to loose ourselves to came a splice of Morrowind's natural world structure spun with the colours of an abstract painting and backed by a story line which teased you with characters playing with the boundaries of senility.

It was exquisite, it is still, it always will like a painting faded in the light whose story still shines through to your soul.

EA Sports Active

I'm 22 days into the 30 day workout after buying this on launch weekend and it's a big step forward from Wii Fit as an active (yes you will sweat) game. Wii Fit does mini games and yoga/pilates type stretching better but other than balance and supleness does not do much for calory burining.

I think 8/10 is a fair and decent score. I'm going to buy a proper resitance band for month 2 and keep going to complement the odd session of football/golf/jogging/long walking.

Football Manager 2009

Hicksy

I would have given it a 7/10

The reason I give this 2D version a 6 is because while it seems more detailed, it's also jerkier, player names glitch into being left at old locations while the player icons continue to move on and there is also questionable advertising on the pitch... I though FM would rise above that sort of thing that adorns other games...

The irony is even if you are one of the lucky few who get through this authentication mess (i managed it with the in-box code) then the primary selling point of the 3D engine is an ABSOLUTE MESS. I turned it back to 2D after 3 games. SI games you have well and truly screwed this one up big time...

Suprised by the low score tbh

4 players off 1 cart
great deal of variety
yes the mini games are basic but this a game targeted at family play and all ages
again the stars system is there to level the playing field as much as possible

Theres 4 twenty somethings in my household and we had great fun playing this over the weekend

My score taking the context of the games target market: 8/10

SEGA Rally

Hicksy

From the review and the comments, this game is a marmite!

My 2 cents are that it's a VERY good ARCADE racing game, very well balanced, great controls, graphics and general feel.

Shallow? Undoubtedly yes but sometimes an hour's blast is what you need and if that hour is more enjoyable than a day spent in a simulated racer then long live shallow racers!

8.5/10 ;)

Theme Park DS

The score's spot on I think. This is still a really neat little game and you will get a buzz out of the retro hit. Basically if you were a fan then you will be now too. But don't expect it to have been polished and ironed out as there are still little problems and you do have to micromanage to a high level which has been overcome by modern games.

Worth a mention is that this is NOT a "save when you want to" game. Some save points are up to an hour apart so keep in mind this is a more suitable "when at home game" than a "30 minutes on the train" game ;)
