The enchanted kingdom

Disneyland Adventures is the latest Kinect title for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 accessory aimed squarely at the kids, but can get you to fall in love with the magical kingdom all over again?
We doubt there are many kids who don’t love the magic of Disney, and while it no doubt drives many parents mad with its merchandising. We have to ask, is this game more Toy Story, or Cars 2. We got the kids out to help us review the game. ?

The definitive review – one season in

Football Manager, nee Championship Manager, has always been a voluminous beast of a management simulation. And, as each iteration has layered feature after feature on top of an already excellent engine in order to improve realism, it has become more in-depth and complex each year.
FM 2012 is the culmination, therefore, of 19 years of expansion and clever jiggery pokery by a development team that can not only crunch numbers better than a Mafia accountant, but probably knows more about football, its economics and on-pitch …

See you on the flipside

The MV800 updates Samsung’s dual screen PL and ST-series compact cameras. However, the MV, which stands for “Multi View”, opts for a single screen that’s now mounted on a flip bracket for forward-facing self-portrait framing. The question is, will the MV800 flip us over to compacts or is it just a gimmick?
Say cheese
Anyone that used the previous generation Samsung PL and ST cameras, many of which have a second small LCD screen on the front of the camera body, will know that it was nothing short …
