Quantum of Solace is a James Bond game for the Nintendo Wii that was released in 2008 after the release of the James Bond movie under the same name. The game however, is based on both the movie Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. First person shooters such as this are among the most popular games for Wii, and this is no exception. This game includes the voices of Daniel Craig as well as other popular characters in the franchise, such as Eva Green and Judi Dench.

Quantum of Solace follows the continued story of James Bond. We begin the game by kidnapping Mr. White who is a member of the group Quantum. He later escapes due to the attack of an MI6 agent. We then find James Bond in Bolivia, and we meet Camille Montes who is trying to overthrow the Bolivian government to get revenge on the death of her family. James Bond then recounts the events of Casino Royale, which we play through, then flash back to the present. The final battle takes place at a hotel in the Bolivian desert and eventually leads to the explosion of the hotel, from which Bond and Camille narrowly escapes.

The weapons in Quantum of Solace are based off of real weapons, such as the AK47 in the games which is based off the AKS-74U. There are also a number of weapons in the game that are given there real name and real logos, and in the game all weapons can be equipped with an array of attachments, from a scope to a silencer. While playing the game in multiplayer, or online, points are acquired from playing online with which you can buy upgrades, new weapons, or attachments to your weapons.

There are a number of multiplayer modes in the Wii version of Quantum of Solace. Firstly, there isConflict, which is basically a death match, where the most kills at the end wins. The second multiplayer mode is Rush, which is another kind of death match, but with a mission involved. The third multiplayer mode in Quantum of Solace is Team Conflict, where you are in a team, and must get as many kills possible for your team in a time limit of 15 minutes. The last multiplayer mode in the game is Team Rush, in which you have to complete your missions before the other team does, again within a limit of 15 minutes.

Quantum of Solace is a classic shooter style game for the Wii and those who enjoy classic James Bond games will enjoy this one. While it is new, and there are features to it that prove that, it also retains some of the appeal that has long made James Bond games famous. It takes a different spin on the Wii compared to other platforms, and it is interesting playing on the Wii shaped controller, but quite easy once you get the hang of it. Overall, Quantum of Solace is a great game!

Has there ever been a more anticipated game than Mass Effect 3 for the PlayStation 3? And has there ever been as much fear and trepidation that the final chapter to Bioware's storied trilogy would be a let down, which would permanently tarnish players' previous experiences in the first two installments of the Mass Effect series? Set aside all concerns, as Mass Effect 3 not only is a worthy addition to Commander Shepard's adventure, it is arguably the best of the three and is, without a doubt, one of the best gaming experiences available on the PlayStation 3.

Players pick up their adventure shortly after Mass Effect 2, in which Shepard has already made numerous crucial decisions during both his jump through the Omega-4 Mass Effect Relay to fight the Collectors and his employment with Cerebus, the para-military human organization that takes xenophobia to unearthly levels. With the previous threats of the series vanquished, Commander Shepard now must somehow defend not only earth from the onslaught of tens of thousands of world-destroying Reapers, but the entire galaxy, too. It is the stuff of legends.

While previous installments of the series demanded Commander Shepard to gather individual allies, ranging from Garrus to Grunt, Mass Effect 3 challenges the protagonist to gather not only individual characters to support a small assault team, but to convince entire civilizations Turians, Krogans, Salarians, (and even Geth) among others to set aside their ancient conflicts that are rooted in petty grudges, racial hatred, and genocide, in order to save the universe. As with Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2, player decisions in Mass Effect 3 for the PlayStation 3 determine the success of Commander Shepard's mission; this time, however, it is not merely the fate of individual characters at stake. It is the fate of entire worlds.

How players make those decisions is determined primarily through conversations Commander Shepard has with the supporting cast within Mass Effect 3. As before, a dialogue wheel is provided that gives players choices of what Commander Shepard will say, which range from comments that will encourage peaceful resolutions to actions that result in the death of major characters. A play through in which players create a Gandhi-like Shepard persona that attempts to acquiesce constantly while massaging characters' hurt feelings plays radically different than if players opt to recreate Commander Shepard in the image of Jack Bauer, resulting in brutal interrogations and a shoot first ask questions later experience. As with previous iterations, Mass Effect 3 does not penalize or encourage either type of gameplay choice; instead, players' decisions are only recorded as paragon or renegade.

The characters with whom Shepard does interact in Mass Effect 3 for the PlayStation 3 consist of many familiar faces (assuming they survived Mass Effect 2's final mission), including Garrus, Liara, and Mordin. There are new characters, of course, but none are more notable than Javik the Promethean. Included in the DLC From Ashes, this character injects both a substantial amount of lore and dark humor into the playing experience. Since the endgame objective is to stop the Reavers while fleshing out the secrets of the Prometheans that were introduced years ago, it is suggested to make the nominal investment to pick up Javik as a squad mate to ensure players get the full experience of Mass Effect 3.

Additional DLC released for Mass Effect 3 include a more refined ending. While there has been much criticism about the game's final moments, these objections are both inaccurate and unwarranted. Take heart that the playable ending of the entire series does not merely finish in a scroll of credits; instead, it is a fully-realized and interactive sequence that nicely wraps up a variety of personal decisions dating back to the initial Mass Effect title to more recent ones made in Mass Effect 3. Indeed, it is an altogether worthy end for the epic series.

But even when the end comes about and the credits roll, players can continue enjoying Mass Effect 3. With the addition of multiplayer content, players have the ability to play as a variety of different races and classes against surprisingly smart AI opponents. As in the campaign for Mass Effect 3, players cannot merely run-and-gun as their habit might dictate as a result of other shooter games. Instead, they must employ steady tactics while relying heavily on their squad mates (player or AI controlled). To do otherwise ensures defeat.

Mass Effect 3 for the PlayStation 3 is an outstanding game. Its gorgeous visuals and stunning sound complement a masterfully told campaign story and addictive multiplayer gameplay. It will provide constant hours of gaming, and ranks among the top games of this generation.

Have you ever started playing a game and thought that while it certainly does look very pretty on the screen it seems pretty ho-hum? Perhaps that has happened more than once, but by playing Bioshock, you may very well be shocked at how its prettiness matches up to how good a game it actually is.

It may indeed look like a very pretty first person shooter game with nothing new to offer, but you couldn't be more wrong as it is so much more than just a normal game that happens to look very pretty. Oh no doubt that the action is alive and kicking in this game and in fact, the action is fine but the main focus of this game is the story that it tells and how compellingly it is told through the radio. It is a very interesting world that grabs you by neck and pulls you in with no intentions of ever letting go. But it is so good that why would you even want to escape in the first place?

For one thing, Bioshock sure does start with a big bang but the impact it makes is more emotional than physical. Such is the power of this excellent game. The graphics are excellent as you are taken to an undersea world where you will help figure out exactly what is going wrong down there. Before you start to think that this is just another role playing game, you may want to stop right there. Like stop thinking that pronto because it is so much more than that. You may have stuff to collect and throw around but you will also be playing with some real cool and powerful firepower as you blast your way into solving the mystery. You may notice however that the weapons aren't very high tech but that is because this was set some 40 years back and well, the weapons weren't very advanced then, were they? You just have to be happy that you have a weapon at all and be done with it, thank you very much. Aside from a shotgun, you will also have to collect different kinds of ammo that you can use all through out the game. Another interesting weapon that you will have is a grenade launcher that doesn't look nearly as cool as it sounds as it looks like it has been fashioned out of a couple of coffee cans and a prayer. But hey it does what it was designed to and is also pretty effective in killing things that need to be killed. There are a lot of enemies to be killed here but what you must know is that when it comes to the variety of things that need to be killed, there isn't much.

All in all, this is one spectacular game that really plays as well as it looks and that is really saying a lot as it is indeed a very pretty game. So plug it in and see what you can do to help the underwater world.

Angry Birds Star Wars is a hybrid of Angry Birds and Angry Birds Space and is played out in standard Angry Bird territory and in space.

The game begins on Tattoine the fictional home of Luke Skywalker before moving on to the Death Star, Hoth and eventually to Dagobath before concluding in Cloud city.

The cast list in no particular order:-


Luke Skywalker Red
Emperor Palpatine King Pig
Stormtroopers loads of Pigs
Boba Fett unknown Pig
Yoda unknown Bird
Darth Vader unknown Pig/Bird
Princess Leia Stella
R2-D2 Egg
Wedge Antilles Blues
Obi-Wan Kenobi Bomb
Chewbacca Terence
C-3PO Matilda
Han Solo and Lando Calrissian Chuck plays both parts


All the birds except Bluebird have extra powers in this game but some of these are only attained through upgrades as the game progresses. These upgrades, once achieved can be used retrospectively to replay earlier levels. In this version birds retain their chosen abilities even after a collision with an object.

Rewards are earned for gaining a certain number of Stars. The rewards such as 5 Millennium Falcons usable on ordinary levels of the game or access to Golden Droid levels of which there are nine and which become available are more stars are collected. Hitting particular droids found around various levels results in the opening up of eight more bonus levels.

There are six worlds on most of the platforms these being Tatooine, Death Star, Hoth, Cloud City, Boba Fett Missions, Path of the Jedi and the Golden Droid bonus levels. Unlocking the Path of the Jedi world can be achieved by getting three Stars on all of the Tatooine and Death Star levels and to obtain Boba Fett Missions you must obtain five jet packs which are to be found in various locations throughout.

The game adds further interest and fun to the very basic yet immensely enjoyable Angry Birds game while it is still not yet become stale out of favor. Good things do not necessarily last forever and eventually the idea will lose its appeal, especially to older players but that day has not yet come.
