SEGA AGES PANZER DRAGOON (NEW)

The Saturn had a plethora of original Sega titles such as the epoch defining Panzer Dragoon. This PS2 version includes the original Saturn game along with an updated hi-res version along with some bonus extras of artwork and cut sequences in the Pandoras Box - which as the name suggests requires opening. The stirring orchestral score sounds splendid on the PS2 and gameplay is just a refreshing as the Dragoon swoops through beautifully textured valleys, skirting the ravine edge. Whilst gameplay is on the rails the 360 degree firing range makes it feel unrestricted as you fly against hordes of critters to drop them from the sky. The controls remain faithful with the ability to scan around checking for sneaky assailants. Jaw dropping visuals and a story whose threads gently wrap around you before you realise you are cocooned in it. Saturn veterans will lap this up and hopefully the uninitiated will see whats got everyone in a flap.

A fine review of Sega's inspired flight of fancy...

Publisher: Sega

Tales of Xillia is a great game—perhaps the best JRPG on the PlayStation 3. It was the second best-selling PS3 game in Japan last year (ninth best-selling in Japan overall), with 660,000 copies sold. And in a country where anything over 100,000 copies sold is considered a financial success, Tales of Xillia was a run-away hit. It was so popular that it is getting a numbered sequel coming out next week. Yet, despite its incredible level of popularity in Japan, it still hasn't come west. More »

Mosquito (Best)

Title : Mosquito (Best)
Publisher : Sony Computer Entertainment
Game Type : A Bit Special
Console : PS2

Price : £9.99

Innovative, if a little off- kilter, 'Ka' is played through the eyes of a mosquito trying to get a good feed. The much-maligned insect can fly freely within the room to close in on a human occupant and try and hit one of the sweet spots suitable for feeding. Unfortunately the family living in the house are aware of your humming presence and will lash out if flying too close or the blood isn't efficiently pinched with a tight joypad rotation. Interesting scenarios with the mother preparing dinner and the slightly voyeuristic section with a lady in the bath. Sony again delivers another genre bending title. Just keep away from the smoking mosquito coils, no matter how tempting they look.

Five-man indie team Nnooo is bringing its retro styled arcade game escapeVektor to PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS late this year. Players control Vektor, an entity trapped inside the console's CPU. The gameplay that ensues is a bit like Qix if you and your enemies were only skirting along the edges of the play area.

The team released escapeVektor: Chapter 1 for WiiWare last year. Although the game was met with critical acclaim, the developers decided to roll all four chapters together into one game and bring it out on these new consoles to reach a wider audience.

"Playing the game in 3D on the Nintendo 3DS is really cool," said Nic Watt, Nnooo's Creative Director. "With the background to each level pulsing in time to the cool chip-tune soundtrack you really get drawn into game's environment. For PlayStation Vita players we hope to make use of Near and location based leaderboards. We'll also be experimenting with the front and rear touchscreen controls."

I followed up with Nnooo about possible PC and Mac ports. "It's definitely something we're considering, but you'll appreciate with only 5 staff it may take a while!"

Mojib Ribbon (New)

Title : Mojib Ribbon (New)
Publisher : Sony Computer Entertainment
Game Type : Rhythm
Console : PS2

Price : £17.99

An unusual title being based on Japanese calligraphy. But wait: the action is controlled by rhythm action style presses which see the on screen character flourish with good timing and stumble, trip - leaving splodges and become generally dishevelled with poor reactions. Quirky and always with cheery tunes with luscious on screen representation.

Guilty Gear Isuka

Title : Guilty Gear Isuka
Publisher : Sammy
Game Type : One on One Beat Em Up
Console : PS2

Price : £9.99

Update of the fine fight fest from the Dreamcast school of kung-fu comes a simultaneous four player update with PS2 exclusive characters and a survival mode. The mighty multiplayer match-ups also allow for three on one battles where the combos and throws really come into their own with a dedicated turn button for when the opponent gets too close for comfort. Guity Gear Isuka also utilises additional planes of fighting like Fatal Fury did previously to ensure the screen doesn't get too cramped. But the real icing on the cake is the side scrolling beat 'em up complete with mean bosses and the ability to unleash special moves.
