Split Screen Multiplayer games involve multiple players by providing a portion of the screen for each person. This enables two, three or four players to be involved in the game using just one console. Although popular for the PS2, Gamecube and Wii it is becoming less common in modern 360 and PS3 games which are less willing to sacrifice horsepower from the visuals to accomodate the extra players - they opt for an online multiplayer mode instead.

The force is strong with this one. With it's potential for Star Wars characters in game and as toys, Disney Infinity is an interesting new game for Lucasfilm fans from Disney Interactive. It promises to bring a Skylanders-style experience, based on Disney movies and characters. In this series of FamilyGamerTV special episodes, we get hands-on with the figures and the game to see what is in store for Summer 2013... watch now

Alien Breed is a cult classic, a gem of a survival shooter from the 1990's and regarded as among the best games ever released for the Amiga. By me, at least. In spite of the flashy update already released for PS3, this is the version I've been longing to see... read now

Grand Slam Tennis 2 brings tennis to PlayStation Move but ends up being jack of all controllers and master of none.
