Looking Back

Forza 3: A noobs view…

I’m not a racer, never been one and thought I’d never be one…

It happened like this.  I needed a new HDD, my 20 gig is getting full very quickly. I shopped around for prices and made the decision that I’ll be buying myself a 250gig Elite, not knowing I’ll be getting FM3 in the bundle, sweet, sell it on for 400 bucks and get the console even cheaper!

I got home, set up my new XBOX and fiddled with the settings while the Forza cover was staring me in the face begging to be put into the disc tray to show off what it can do. I gave in and popped it into the tray, just to have a look at all the hype over the last 2 months…

Quantum of Solace 007 – Review (X360)

by Victor ‘r0gue’ Vieira

Overview

I recently broke my thumb-rule of ‘no movie based games’. They are usually a huge let down, and I can’t remember a good one. The James Bond series has to be a favorite amongst most males and who can say they’ve never wanted to be 007. With all his gadgets, cars and women, he must have captured the imagination of every young boy at some stage. Then seeing as Treyarch developed and Activision published Quantum of Solace, plus used the IW game engine first used in COD 4 , it did give me hope.

Mirrors Edge – Looking Back

by Chris ‘spiros za’ Hartley

This was one of those games I was not too sure about when it came out. I picked up a couple of times and put it back down not being sure if I would like it or not. Nowadays spending R550,00 on a game and not liking it will make a dent in the pocket somewhere. I had a couple of old games to trade so I made the trip to Canal Walk. There’s a little shop there that does rentals, trades and sales. Pretty cool little shop and you can pick up some real gems there, just keep going back once every 2 weeks and see what they have on the shelves. I traded Sonic the Hedgehog for Mirrors Edge and paid an additional R79,00 bucks, bargain! (Better than spending the R550,00!)

Forza 2 – Looking Back

Zombie then and now: FORZA MOTORSPORT 2

By Cuan “Cracker” Robertson

With Forza motorsport 3 on the horizon, many race fans on the Xbox 360 are un-dusting their copies of Forza 2 in preparation for the third coming of console racing nirvana.

Forza Motorsport 2 is the follow up of the race sim hit Forza Motorsport that was released on the original Xbox. The Microsoft racing wheel was released at the same time and made for an awesome racing experience.
