As for Sony’s gaming consoles, both PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 are outdated by now, but that doesn’t mean that they’re dead. In fact, the modding community has made something that allows you to play your PlayStation 2 in a portable way.
When it comes to selling a product then organizations can go to any extent. We already know how various tech ideas have been integrated with TV sets just to lure customers but I had never thought of something which is so obvious. Sony has turned the very basic step of television and play station integration into reality by launching Sony Bravia KDL-22PX300 with a built in PS2.
This is not a Hulk game. This is a movie game that happens to have the Hulk in it, and as such, comes off as more “hired hit” than “labor of love”. It definitely has a few amusing moments, but thanks to some underlying problems, the experience is ultimately juts mediocre. Naturally, you assume the role of the Marvel’s not-so-Jolly Green Giant as he avoids capture attempts by the U.S Army and tries to thwart the vague but clearly evil machinations of a scientists-led group called the Enclave. The plot and the characters are both paper-thin, but the story is at least coherent enough to follow.
There is a lot riding on this sequel games may have awarded it 7/10, but Juiced certainly wasn’t the greatest racing title to emerge from the previous generation. Nevertheless, the game sold by the bucket load, which was more than enough to help UK developer Juice Games to get the go-ahead form the THQ to make a follow-up. Unfortunately, that is unlikely to be your initial response.
For a nation much more at home kicking balls about in grass than sliding a rubber biscuit over frozen water, the appearance of a second ice hockey game which looks, play and even sound almost same as the first EA’s NHL 09, is pushing it. Confusing the issue even further is the fact that they are both really good. Last month’s NHL 09 scored an impressive nine, and 2K9, although still lagging a little behind, is a big improvement over last year’s stiff, over serious sim.
Total Nonstop Action Wrestling’s videogame debut couldn’t have come at a better time, with the rival WWE Smackdown Vs Raw series on the wane and the UK release for the excellent Fire Pro Wrestling Returns on PS2 pulled at the last minute. Happily this is much more than an opportunistic crack at a genre in dares need of freshening up. Its unique six sided ring and roster of WWE vets (Kurt Angle, Booker T), indie starlets (Samoa Joe, AJ Styles) and aspiring youngsters (Shark Boy, Chris Sabin) are obvious plus points, but its Impact’s impressively accessible gameplay which makes this worth a look over its big name rival.
