Raving rabbids and the Black Eyed Peas?

iol scitech april 26 sony ps3 pic REUTERS Ranks of US videogame players decreased by nearly 12 million.


RATING: 7.5/10

The venerable puzzle game returns for one more bite of the cherry, albeit not a particularly fresh one. Still, the underlying premise (tilt the landscape to move a blob of mercury to the exit) has served many games well, back to its original inspiration, Marble Madness. And as a cheap download from the Xbox/PSN store, Mercury Hg has enough nostalgic charm and varied levels to make it worth investigation.


RATING: 7.5/10

When it works, it makes for a hilarious party game (eg, everyone dance like a loon until the Rabbids notice you, then hide behind furniture until they lose interest). When it doesn't, you end up in a frustrating battle with Kinect's limitations.

Happily, there are more of the former than the latter.


RATING: 7/10

Born of the same well that gave us the Michael Jackson Experience and Just Dance, if you love the Peas, you'll enjoy the BEP Experience as an excuse to shake a leg to their choons. - Belfast Telegraph
