The review section is great,but sometimes we just don't have time to write a full length review for everything we have had the chance to play.Please post the games you have tried recently here and let everyone know whats worth checking out and just as importantly what to avoid.

Cheers everyone.

Its a puzzle game. The idea is pretty simple, you build a structure from point A to point B. You do so with little balls of goo that crawl over your structure as you build it. As you are building with goo your structure is quite fluid so theres alsorts of physics-madness going on. As I say pretty simple but the game has so much charm about it.

What's it actually about? I've heard good things...but without buying the game (nor looking on other websites) I've no idea what it is.

Oh, and I'm currently playing Bioshock and Red Alert 3 Uprising on PC, and Wario Ware (new one) on DSi :)

Broken Sword on the Wii. It's a strange experience, playing the same game from an entirely difference character. I've no idea whether anything from the original game will even feature.

Whilst away from uni I only have my Wii to entertain me.

So I'm now an expert at Wii Sports Bowling, got a star ranking in everything on Mario Kart, and have nearly finished Guitar Hero 3 on expert.

I'm so bored...

Enchanted Arms
A pretty standard JRPG, overly frequent random battles, end game that requiring level grinding to make it doable etc.. One thing thats really impressive though is how bad the voice acting and scripting is. I dont even think its the result of poor translation, they really meant it all. Still without it I dont think I'd have continued playing as its kept me quite entertained.
And given I only paid 3 for it, good purchase. :)

World of Goo
Work of genius really. Even better considering I only paid 4 for it off Steam

Thought I would resurrect this thread.

I'm currently playing :

Guitar Hero Metallica,I have posted a review for it if anyone's interested.Its fantastic but its not the easiest game of its kind.I have already broken one guitar on it !.

Army Of Two,which was cheap and is basically a Gears Of War rip off.Its alright for the 8.99 I picked it up for,wouldn't have paid much more for it though.

Just ordered Left 4 Dead as I missed that when it came out.There's nothing else about at the moment that really grabs me to be honest.Unless someone can point me towards something I may have overlooked ?.

Ahh, I played it on 360. Barely touch my Wii these days. Though did play some more Ghost Squad a week or so ago. That game's ace! :D

Love lightgun games.

Yeah, I was a Lead Designer there.

Can't really comment on any of their projects as technically it's kinda still limping along... lol

That's what I'm playing through at the moment, it's not bad but that might be the novelty of the Wii.
