The first Dead Space
game was something pretty special. Its setting of a deserted spaceship infested with seemingly endless hordes of "necromorph" human/alien mutations pushed the boundaries when it came to evoking a sense of isolation and foreboding, interspersed with periods of outright terror. The game was successful enough to warrant a fully fledged sequel along with numerous related titles. We join Isaac Clarke in his latest outing in Dead Space 3
. We looked at the game on Xbox 360.
The zombiepocalypse has long been fertile ground for video game developers and Ubisoft is keeping the undead-bashing good times rolling with ZombiU
, a first-person survival horror launch title for the Wii U
That most erudite of handymen has returned for the launch of yet another Nintendo hardware platform. New Super Mario Bros. U
on the Wii U is a solid game too, even if it doesn't break any significant new ground.

From its inception there has been a lot to like about the Assassin’s Creed series. The game has always delivered jaw dropping visuals, some very cool acrobatic moves and those delightfully enjoyable sneaky kills on unsuspecting individuals. These ingredients are yet again featured in the latest installment, a game that takes the series to a new environment, as you explore the political machinations of revolutionary colonial America. Gizmag reviews the Xbox 360 version of Assassin's Creed III.
It has been a while, but the Master Chief is back. Halo 4

-style moments fans will truly love. We reviewed the game on the Xbox 360.
Soccer isn’t called the “world game” on a whim. It is the biggest football code on the planet with fans and players hailing from all corners of the globe. The game is also the most popular video game in the ball sports genre, and with good reason. It is fun, has tactical depth and is usually pretty thrilling to play – and it's in the gameplay stakes that Pro Evolution Soccer 2013
on the Xbox 360 shines.
When it comes to martial arts madness, few games can claim the pedigree of the Tekken series. First arriving on the original PlayStation in the mid 90s, Tekken

has been released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 and we review the Xbox 360 version of the game.
