Knight Rider (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 06

60 Second Gamer

Knight Rider was a smash hit in the 1980s. This game came out in 2006. Before the 2008 reboot, but admittedly following several rather poor attempts at relaunching the franchise in the 90s. Looking back, what was it with the PS2 and the many, many developers that bought up the licences for well known properties? …

Charlotte’s Web (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 05

60 Second Gamer

If previous knowledge and experience is anything to go by, Charlotte’s Web was probably thrown together in a 6-8 week window for a very small amount of money. And it shows. You play as Wilbur (the pig), Charlotte (the spider) and Templeton (the rat) across 19 mini games set on the Zuckerman Farm. Wilbur is …

Let’s Make A Soccer Team! (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 04

60 Second Gamer

Somewhere along the way, Football Manager got it right. Finely balancing what is, essentially, a number of spreadsheets, and making them entertaining. At the same time, Let’s Make A Soccer Team resolutely fails in its effort to convert the beautiful game to the RPG sphere. Your role is to act as club chairman. This explains …

Dr Dolittle (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 03

60 Second Gamer

Want another game by Blast! Entertainment? Then you are clearly a glutton for punishment. On looking at the cover this 2006 PS2 release looks to be a tie in to the Eddie Murphy film where he stars as Dr Dolittle, that chap who can talk to animals and cure their suspiciously human ailments. . But …

Little Britain (PS2) review – 60 Second Gamer Episode 02

60 Second Gamer

Let us summarise the Little Britain video game for you. It’s genuinely bad, one barely worthy of the world of video games. Seven mini games and some arbitrary challenges just to give you something to do. That’s because those seven mini games can take about half an hour to work through once you get used …

60 Second Gamer

Welcome to the start of brand new, honest to Grud 2016 60 Second Gamer!¬†We start with perhaps a less well known game, Crash N Burn. This was published by Eidos on the PS2 way back in 2004. In many ways it’s a Burnout clone. There’s fast paced racing action, lots of crashing and plenty of …

Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends. We’re so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside. Right, that’s enough of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. This is 60 Second Retro Gamer Episode 67. The review? Why, it’s that classic (ahem…) Driven, based on the film of the same name starring Sylvester Stallone. …

Star Wars Rogue Squadron 3: Rebel Strike – 60SRG Episode 66

This week’s blast from the past is Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3 on the Gamecube. Rebel Strike was released at the tail end of 2003 in the middle of the console’s run, and proved to be another solid entry in the world of Star Wars video games. Solid, but not spectacular. Some may have appreciated …

Underworld The Eternal War – 60 Second Retro Gamer Episode 65

It seems that most developers just can’t get licensed tie-in games right. Such is the case with Underworld The Eternal War. Only released on the PS2 and not made available in the US, we can say with honesty that you’re not missing much at all. Aside from the incredibly linear gameplay, textures are poor and …
