Resident Evil 4 HD PS3

In our Resi 4 HD review there was a line that goes something like this: “Step away from the computer. Jump on to PSN and download this beauty. Resident Evil 4 is one of the greatest games of all time”. I thought it might be a little bit of fanboy hyperbole initially (we’re all allowed a bit).

God Of War: Collection Vol II PS3 review

Kratos’ handheld adventures remain two of the best games on PSP, but now the angry god-slayer’s backstory has found its way out of your lint-filled pocket and on to the big screen in this PS3-ified God Of War Collection Volume II.

Ico & Shadow Of The Colossus HD PS3 review

How far would you go for love? Would you bin off watching the Champions League final for an anniversary nosh-up? Forfeit a night with the lads for an evening with the in-laws?
