Bip, bap and bang goes the theory that only Western developers know how to make this sort of thing. Bang it goes again, and again, pummelled by a barrage of homing lasers, rockets and heavy machine gun fire – shot by a man in a super silver suit as he breakdances between cover points, pausing only to take a quick but loving drag on a cigarette.

If there was one Xbox game we deeply regretted never being made backwards- compatible with the 360, it was Crazy Taxi 3. Sadly it seems like that will never happen now, but at least we’ve got the Live Arcade port of the original to keep us happy instead.

We don’t mind admitting that of all the early Kinect games, Sonic Free Riders was among those that we wanted to work the most. Conceptually, the device and game are a good match, with the former offering gamers the chance to mimic controlling an actual hoverboard and the latter providing a sense of tempo that few other Kinect games can match.

A class action lawsuit has been brought against the publisher and developer of Aliens: Colonial Marines for falsely advertising the finished product, which bore little resemblance to previous “actual gameplay” demonstrations…

Of all the companies that you’d expect to see reboot the classic Desert Strike series that started on the Sega MegaDrive, we’d probably put Electronic Arts at the top of the list – after all, it made the original and subsequent spin-offs, so it knows what works and what doesn’t.

Whenever a beloved gaming franchise gets the reboot treatment, it’s always a tentative time for the diehard fans. Sometimes the payoff is entirely worth it; you only need to look at great games like Fallout 3, XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow to know that putting a modern spin on a classic formula can result in something exceptional. But for every Street Fighter IV, Metroid Prime and Ninja Gaiden, there are garish travesties like Golden Axe: Beast Rider, Duke Nukem Forever and Bomberman: Act Zero. And the less said about the ongoing flogging of the credibility-starved needlemouse, the better.

Despite the fact that the original instalment of ToeJam & Earl is now over 21 years old, it was still way ahead of its time when Greg Johnson and Mark Voorsanger rolled it out on the MegaDrive.

Where the bloody hell do we start with this? Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is a classic, Nineties-era platformer with a batshit-mental plot and a twisted sense of humour that threatens brilliance only to fall disappointingly short. The madness starts when a zombie rabbit prince is caught in a compromising position with a rubber ducky, discovering that 100 of his zombie rabbit subjects have seen the damning photographic evidence. The solution? Head out and kill them all, obviously.

If you were playing games in 1996, chances are you were doing so on a Sega or Nintendo system – which means you were there in person when both companies revolutionised the way we play games, quite literally, with the introduction of an analogue stick on a control pad. While Nintendo did so with an entirely new console, the N64, Sega released a funky new controller and the glorious Nights into Dreams on the Saturn.

If Virtua Fighter has always been AM2’s final, uncompromising word in both depth and balance in 3D fighting games, then Fighting Vipers is proof that Sega’s most famous arcade studio can produce a beat-’em-up that’s both captivating and entertaining when it wants to.

Despite it's modest success, the SEGA Dreamcast got quite a few things right. But was Sonic Adventure 2 one of them? And how will this eleven year-old title hold up? Kevin McLennan puts SEGA's HD re-release to the test.

Stand aside Beautiful Katamari, there's a new batshit crazy game doing the rounds and it's got a point to prove. Leigh Groocock goes hands on with SEGA's weirdest game to date and buy's a giant saw blade that looks like a doughnut in the process. Go figure.

Can a whittled down version of a game that's already been out on 360 for nearly five years really have what it takes to conquer Xbox Live Arcade? You'd better believe it. Martin Mathers pulls on his combat trousers and comes out fighting…

Has Sega's games archive sprung a leak of something? With 12 classic games updated for Xbox Live Arcade arriving in the last two weeks, we're thinking they might finally be capitalising on having such a huge back catalogue of awesomeness. Plus, Ubisoft's Mad Riders is here, along with a huge amount of discounts for Popcap titles and two fairly decent new Games On Demand.
