Condemned 2 if fucking terrible. The first was good, short fun, but the sequal is piss-poor with it's stupid horror cliche shit. I'll never trust another review from Krudster if he considers Condemned 2 to be a top 20 game.

"Resident Evil 4 struggled to recapture its original-release applause due to clumsy motion-sensing controls" Gone fishing perhaps?????

Resident Evil 0 was shit anyway. A total pain in the arse and nowhere near as good as REmake.

Condemned 2 is fucking shit. Can't believe Eg is still wanking over it. One of the most infuriating games I've played. All of the wanky effects can't hide the fact that it's a complete dog to play.

Oh, and these articles are bullshit. Lossless Hdmi, Rgb, scaling polygons etc. Who gives a fuck?

Well made single player FPSs on consoles are fine. The best ones take into account the limitations of a game pad. It's online where they go to shit usually.

Shooters are still crap on console's compared to the PC. Only the wii comes anywhere close to the controls of a mouse and keyboard. Don't delude yourself that FPS games are as good on a console, especially when you play online.

Battlefield: Bad Company

I've played every battlefield on pc and can't stand this. It's too frenetic. Definitely dumbed down for consoles. Then there's the problem of playing with a joypad which are shite for online fps. No matter what you say you'll end up totally infuriated. The single player could work since you'll probably have more time and it'll be more forgiving. The graphics and sound are great but i'd take bf1942 over this anyday.

Smash Bros. Wi-Fi detailed

Live users please shut-up. Stop trying to justify the subscription costs of your service by trash-talking Wii online. Nintendo Wifi Connection is a completely free service and also wireless which even the mighty 360 can't do unless you spend 60 on a dongle.

If people would stop monging out and actually think about friends codes for a minute it makes sense. The system means you can only interact and exchange information with people you actually know in real life or communicate regularly with on the net. It all keeps Nintendo's nose clean knowing you can't come into contact with random wierdos through their sytem.

Obviously you can play without having any registered friends, but there is no way to interact with them and you may have limited game modes available.

If you can't live with what your getting through Wifi Connection away and watch people fiddle with themselves on the Xbox camera or whatever you like to do online.

Wii Play is a great game when you consider that it costs the equalivilant of 5. The people who knock it are completely missing the point. It's the perfect introductory Wii game, even more so than Wii Sports.

Bust-A-Move

It's amazing how much shit is spoken about the Wii. Some people won't be happy until it grows arms and wanks you off on demand.

There's alot of stuff I want on the Wii but not at 35-40 a game. I fancy Rayman, Madden, CoD, Heatseeker, Godfather and SSX bit not until they hit the bargain bin. The same goes for Mercury even though it's supposed to be fantastic. I guess I've just been spoiled with the amount of bargain priced PS2 and PC games you can get in the shops.

Physical Education

I don't see why you would need a peice of hardware just to do the Physics. It seems like another case of creating a buzz to sell hardware.

If you've played Eledees on the Wii you'll see that impressive physics can be done on a machine that only costs 180. It makes all the hype about the gravity gun in Half Life 2 look silly now that you can do all that stuff by literally pointing and manipulating any object you see.

So, maybe you guys should re-review it. It's only fair to the developers and potential customers.

This is Eurogamer, so you should review the PAL versions of games whenever possible. That way you wont confuse us by banging on about issues which only appear in versions of games that'll never see these shores.

Mario Strikers online detailed

In all honesty, online gaming is shit unless you know your opponent in real life. The people you play online have no sense of fair play. It's all about winning which isn't any fun for both party's.

I guess this is also Nintendo's way of thinking which is why they are going down the friend code route. There's also the paedo/weirdo issue and friend codes are a way for Nintendo reduce the risk and any bad press.

Could this exercise be any more pedantic? Honestly, what a waste of time.

It must be painful trying to play games for a lot of folk. "Which cable should I use? How do I shield it? That pixel is the wrong shade of turquoise. This only runs at 53.5 frames per second"

This whole technology willy waving nonsense is pathetic.

Who would have thought the best Sonic games of recent years would be on Nintendo platforms? It still feels wrong to me seeing a Sega logo on screen while playing a Nintendo console.
