If you have been a fan of the first two releases of Toy Story this game then you will certainly be glad to know that improvements and a better gaming pleasure has been installed in this game. First, you will notice that the game is equipped with more challenges. You will see that jumping or shooting enemies will not be as easy as it was on the first two releases; also, you will see that the visuals of this game is more enhanced and given more detail. You will easily distinguish your character from those that are in the movie itself judging from their looks, voice and signature moves.

The game starts with your character (Woody) as a wanderer who roams a town and tries to help each and everyone that needs helping. As you do certain tasks and help out some of the locals, you will be rewarded with hidden items as well as sub-quests. This game feature is a bit different and more advanced than its predecessors so it’s quite impressive.

As you progress through the game, you will be given missions where you need to find things without using a map – which can be very exhausting if you don’t pay attention to your location. Also, you will be encountering regular checkpoints after every level or mission.

For every mission, you will be given certain tasks in order to pass of finish. One of which is to turn invisible so as enemy’s will not detect you, fly to certain locations, race with other cars, and a whole lot more.

Today’s version of Toy Story is undeniable filled with fun and enjoyable moments both in its single player mode and its multiplayer mode. You will be given the luxury to stare at a split screen in order to see your opponents through the game. The game executes a lot of great ideas best for the movie fans. This game deserves a good rate.

Worms: Open Warfare 2, where to start with the review, well you control four worms at your command, tackle on and defeat three other worm teams across different landscapes. Weaponry like the concrete donkey makes a comeback while ridiculously named new items of weaponry are introduced, such as the explosive buffalo of lies. The worms themselves are the source of the game’s charm and staying power in the market over the years while the weapons system will keep you on your toes.

Single player options are varied, and among them the most important is the campaign mode where you guide a team of worms into increasingly challenging and changing terrain and landscapes. These lands will serve as history courses as they take you to differently themed backdrops over the course of the campaign. At the end of each level is a very difficult boss. The puzzle mode is as equally difficult, you must kill all the worms you see in your screen but here’s the catch: with only a limited number of arsenal weapons. These specific levels are designed in such a way that there is a right way to do it. A time attack mode sets your goal as to reach an exit point in the level as quickly as you can.

A game against computer-controlled opponents is never as unpredictable and exciting as when you're playing against a live opponent, which makes the inclusion of online play to Open Warfare such a significant addition. In addition to regular matches, you can play a simple variant called forts, where the landscape consists of two giant forts on opposite sides of the screen, and rope race, a fun little event where you have to show your prowess with the ninja rope by swinging your way across a level faster than your opponents. Interaction with other players features voice chat support, clan support, and a messaging system.

There are lots of weapons, plenty of single and multiplayer content to dig into, and enough customization options to really hook established fans. At the same time, efforts to diversify the Worms experience aren't mind-blowing, and the game doesn't go out of its way to reel in new players.

Overall would rate this 8/10.

This is a game that has very complex and long quests .You will find the game quite fun as you climb furniture and scurry like a rat. You will encounter Remy who has a variety of abilities. Every level of this game is full of puzzles and the graphics and the environments just mimic the movies feel and look, this is quite entertaining. However you will find the game has enemies who are not as active as you would expect some lifeless insects and reptiles. The upgrades on food recipes are not much of an enticement for replay missions.

Played on the PSP Ratatouille is an adventure game on 3D. In this story, players have to help Remy, the Rat to run, jump, swim, climb through the 30 levels to save chief Linguioni. You may get worn out before you are halfway with the story. The mission is relatively long and the levels are balanced to give the puzzle-solving and the enemy bashing a platform level. The game is limited to two players.

The game play involves nothing new, everything that the other adventure games have. In Ratatouille you have to climb up dangling ropes, scurry across furniture, jumping between shelves and furniture and moving boxes and cups as footstools helps reach the recipe card that is stashed in each level. When you are across the water in the bathtubs and sinks, you can have Remy submerge to duck electric eels on the surface. Remy seems to have some Sly Coopers and Daxters acrobatics, and by pressing the circle button you can make him jump off horizontal bars and land even on the smallest knobs.

Enemies on this level will try to crunch Remy, but with a punch combo you can send away the enemies. If you run out of health or energy, you will have to start the level from scratch; however you will rarely run out of energy because there is food everywhere.

The 3D environments make very good use of the PSP. Though not as lavish as in the movie but way much better. The only drawback with the environment is that some objects that should move when you clash the past them, never move. You will laugh as you watch Remy use his acrobatic animations across the tight ropes and as he somersaults on the horizontal bars. You will also find it fun as you punch enemies like the spiders, bats and snakes.

You do not have to have watched the film for you to be able to play this game, but if you have watched it, you will have a better understanding of the characters. However minor characters do not get a lot of screen-time. The presentation of this game is delightful but irrespective of the small number of flaws.

Ratatouille lets you go wild with the acrobatics that Remy shows for close to eight hours. If you are a fan of the movie you will like the game as well and the pricing is perfect.

This is a great driving game that has a variety of events and a good sense of speed. The game is fast paced with exciting gameplay. The game is an interesting combination of Modes that has features from the previous versions of Burnout. The game has its shortcoming s in he midst of all the good things in it; it is quite difficult to figure out the traffic from a distance. You will also find the multiplayer is not as good as you would expect or as you would find it on a PS2 and on a PSP.

Over the years the Burnout series had added quite some amount of content and has also adjusted it’s format by adding and adjusting some features. Burnout Dominator has taken features and mechanics from the previous Burnout games and brought them together in a new way to give a whole new game. This game is more skill-based and does not have the combative approach which has been the case in the previous ten games in the series. If you are looking for a high speed in a racing game then this is the game might be it.

The goal in Burnout Dominator unlike in other Burnout games not to drive dangerously, rather it is to hit a boost and hold it down until the blue color the fills up when you fill up a meter entirely disappears. When you are supercharging in Burnout Dominator you are supposed to fill up a secondary meter that will govern how much boost you will get when you complete your Burnout. When you fill out the second meter, then you will develop a Burnout chain.

In this game you will come across lap time challenges and you will gain scores for driving dangerously. When you are asked to drift events you should do so. As you drive on races that will have you compete with some other five cars. The game gives you a range of cars to slam around among other things. You will note that there is no Crash Mode in this game; this is not a good idea because the crash mode helps improve on the pace of cars.

On PSP Burnout Dominator is quite impressive, it is clear that the game was not designed for PlayStation. The experience may feel like it is a little leveled back in spots the game is still one that has perfect speed for a racing game. Using the multiplayer options to play with friends is great fun and can be quite exciting. However, as the game moves in the fast admirable speeds, it does so at the expense of the visuals. The cars look chunky and at times they turn out to be ugly.

If you have played Burnout on Xbox 360, you will also find that transition to the PSP or the PS2 will give you a blocky flaunt. Another flaw is that from a distance you cannot make out which car is which. If you are a fan of Burnout then it is worth looking at the Dominator for more tracks and more content.

Ridge Racer 7 has the same arcade style as its predecessor with a crazy gameplay. Game enthusiasts should by all means enjoy the new addition to the series. The car customization option as well as the slipstream speed are the only features which will be easily recognized in the game as these are something new. Apart from the similarities with the previous game, will this be able to offer more to the video game industry?

For the amateurs of the game, Ridge Racer 7 is entirely foreign to them since the game is still focusing on the same thing ever since it begun in real arcades just like the absurd mechanics in on-rail drift which will beat the player in every corner automatically. For sure, it will be hard for the gamers to begin with the game and get into it swiftly. To do this, you have to settle in a corner, let off the gas and then hit once again. As a result, you will spin out and begin to slide. Your objective at this time is to be sure that your car is going to the right direction as soon as you emerge from the turn wherein you will recover traction and will keep on going.

There is something more about the game than just automatic cornering. Moving your car in high speeds is a form of exercise in terms of accurate timing and strategy. Once you go at high speeds, the nitrous boost meter will charge up. Additionally, slipstreaming to the action can also be seen. This is somewhat dramatic due to the fact that this is very efficient. Once you accelerate faster and closer to another racer, you will receive additional speed boost. As a result, you will keep on staying close to your opponent and try to slingshot around them in game play.

The car design of the game is also cool. Despite the absence of licensed cars, there are actually great names coming from a series of imaginary manufacturers. Aside from that, every maker has various makes making the designs wild and filled with smooth curves making the vehicles have the futuristic concept. In the game, cars are instead called machines which is quite insane, never did understand the concept behind that. Furthermore, in order to upgrade your vehicle, you have to create a relationship with the maker of the parts. After that, the primary mode called Ridge State Grand Prix will emerge and open up. When engaged in this mode, you can participate in races one at a time and will rise up against seven others through battle points.

Apart from the Grand Prix mode, you can also have the chance to participate in time attack mode and race on your own. Moreover, Ridge Racer 7 has an online support for up to fourteen players and this is exactly where longevity of the game is derived. The pair battle mode is where you divide the teams into two cars each. Since the game supports all the high definition modes, it will appear very sharp indeed.

Also the sense of speed together with the graphics’ sharpness will make the game look great. However, the sound quality is a bit understated considering the rest of the game. The noises of the engine are low and also the nitrous bursts could do with tweaking. The game is the ideal entry game with changes in gameplay considered to be dramatic. The redundancy of the tracks may be a disappointing but if you are an amateur player, you will certainly be in for an authentic treat.
