When a mysterious villain known as Inferno threatens the world with global destruction of the fiery hot kind, the only option for the government is to fold to his dastardly plans. However one man in charge of the armed forces, Major Bryant believes there is a better, more direct way to deal with this threat and so his team of renegades are gathered to save the world from this flaming threat.

It’s strange how addictive these top down shooters actually are. Those familiar with arcade titles such as Assault Heroes will be instantly accustomed to how the game plays. With that said, it’s not hard at all to get used to it. Left Stick drives and moves right stick shoots. Simple. Extra controls include a simple boost button along with the two triggers. Left activating the characters special ability/weapon and right using any secondary weapon you may stumble upon amidst your travels. The vehicles simple one stick drive makes them such a breeze to manoeuvre around. It also means you won’t get stuck in corners of the map either, and if you DO manage to get yourself wedged, it’s almost always a simple push of the stick to get yourself out of it.

I never did grow up around Sonic when it came to gaming; I was more of a Mario guy back in the day. However it’s definitely safe to say, If I was going to finally get into the series (we’re talking proper Sonic games, not all the constant spin offs and peripheral based games) Sonic Generations would probably be the one to pull me in. Its advanced yet clearly Sonic visuals are enjoyable to look at as they are get involved in. The game managed to re-create classic levels like Green Hill Zone yet still feel like the original, it’s really well done and still fun to play, even for those hardcore fans that still know the levels like the back of their hands.

A game on the showcase floor you probably haven’t heard of is Binary Domain. This title caught my eye on the shop floor purely through chance of having a free console going as I was passing by, however this chance setting managed to put the game on my radar for future investigation.

Enjoyable, innovative and a breeze to play. Sorry Sega, but if you EVER hoped for words like this, or anything similar to crop up in a review for your latest Sonic slaughter, Free Riders, then you truly are dreaming. Gamers, welcome to one of the most avoidable Kinect games currently on shelves. Or at this rate. Bargain bins.

It was pretty much inevitable really, as always at the forefront of every peripheral and console launch, Sega barges their way through with yet another Sonic title. This time round, Sonic is definitely tired and those stress lines are really starting to show.
