LA Cops – Review

LA Cops – Review

Think about Hotline Miami. Got it? Good. Now, change its perspective. No, we don’t want it to be a top-down game anymore. Yep, that’s it. A nice isometric view. Now, take away the ability to properly survey rooms you’ve yet to enter. Nice…because who wants to see that shit, right? Now, couple that with a poorly-implemented lock-on mechanic. Good, g...

Xbox One – How Opinions Can Change!

Xbox One – How Opinions Can Change!

I can still remember when Microsoft announced the Xbox One. Their ideas behind games having a licence locked to the console, trying to do away with the used games market and making digital the way to go. I was furious, if I could burn their ideas I would have done. Outraged, I made my mind up their and then. This generation I would be the owner of ... Read More »

Dirty Bomb – Preview

Dirty Bomb – Preview

Dirty Bomb is the latest effort from Splash Damage. The PC aficionado out there might recognise the name, but for everyone else here’s a little history. Fourteen years ago a group of online game modders became their own company and caught the attention of Activision and iD after creating maps for games like Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Counter-...

Battlefield Hardline – Review

Battlefield Hardline – Review

“Sir, Mendoza’s last run in the field, no offence, was a total clusterfuck.” It’s hard to not see Khai Ming Dao’s first critique of her new partner as a tongue in cheek look at the last Battlefield outing. Battlefield 4 was one of the titles badly affected by EA’s 2013 of discontent… Ok it wasn’t really called that. But Battlefield 4’s online issue... Read More »

White Night – Review

White Night – Review

Horror survival games usually just leave me by the wayside, cruising past like a friendly passing car. I’m neither bothered or generally captured by them. If you know me then you know horror in general is just a genre that I am very rarely grabbed by. So when White Night appeared to me, out of nowhere, imagine my surprise. This is a game that is ba...

Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. Today, Andy has taken a trip back through many games to look at the most electrifying man in sports entertainment… The Rock! (You might want to read this article with the video below playing.) When the idea... Read More »

Gaming Memories – WWF Raw

Gaming Memories – WWF Raw

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. Today, Tim has taken a look back to the 16-Bit era of gaming to see if WWF Raw had got any easier in twenty years. Really, it’s fair to say I only know about wrestling because of video games. Neither of my ... Read More »

Super Dungeon Bros – Preview

Super Dungeon Bros – Preview

Super Dungeon Bros is a four-player game that brings some of the best elements of some of our favourite multiplayer indie games. You can see the inspiration of games like Castle Crashers. Dungeon raid, rouge-like, co-op smashing games have been a regular staple on people’s top console indie games lists although not many have done them too well. The... Read More »

Wrestling – A Battle of Genres

Wrestling – A Battle of Genres

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. Today, Mick takes a look at the age old question: Are wrestling games fighting games, or are they sports games? It’s a Battle of Genres! It’s Wrestlemania season again, so I’m going to be tackling the quest... Read More »

WWE Network – Review

WWE Network – Review

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. Today, instead of a game, Sean looks at an app which is making a lot of noise and gaining a lot of subscribers. The WWE Network app certainly has made a big impact since finally releasing in the UK. It’s al... Read More »

The Evil Within – The Assignment DLC Review

The Evil Within – The Assignment DLC Review

The Evil Within, whilst not what you’d consider a “surprise” hit, bearing in mind the game’s genealogy, was a game that I didn’t expect to make the impact with me that it did (it eventually took its place at number 2 on my personal list of 2014, and I probably scored it slightly too low at the time). Successfully marrying the intense action of his ... Read More »

Gaming Memories: WWF Smackdown

Gaming Memories: WWF Smackdown

This week is wrestling week at TheGameJar. Which means we’ve asked all our writers to share memories of wrestling games past and present. To start with, here’s Paul looking at a game that really did change the face of wrestling games. So this week sees the mighty WWE holding the biggest wrestling event of the year once more – The ...

Hotline Miami 2 Wrong Number – Review

Hotline Miami 2 Wrong Number – Review

Hotline Miami 2 follows on from the enormously successful indie game Hotline Miami. For those of you that have probably seen but not played it before, allow me to enlighten you as to the status quo. Hotline Miami is a 2D top down shooter that is played at a frenetic and unforgiving pace. The style, which takes an eclectic look at the 80s through th... Read More »

LEGO Jurassic World – Preview

LEGO Jurassic World – Preview

Hold on to your butts… Clever Girl… Life will find a way… I’m getting these out of the way early so I am not tempted to fill this preview with many puns. But it’s true, there are numerous moments throughout the history of the trilogy (soon to be quadrilogy) of the failed Dinosaur theme park that have adorned our popular culture both vis...

Not a Hero – Hands On Preview

Not a Hero – Hands On Preview

Not a Hero will have a lot of attention coming its way. Developer Roll7 won a BAFTA for their skateboard game OlliOlli and their platform shooter is equally as addictive. The game may hark back to the days of classic platformer design, things you’d likely see from a Spectrum, Commodore and occasionally 16-Bit consoles. But the look is very much of ... Read More »

Grim Fandango Remastered: Review

Grim Fandango Remastered: Review

One of the things me and my housemate share in common is our love for Grim Fandango. It’s a game both of us played when we were younger and still hold dear in our hearts. It was a game that was so unique that it stands prominently in our memories and would even make it onto my personal Top Ten list. In fact, we can still quote its many humorous lin... Read More »

Mortal Kombat X – Interview with Hans Lo

Mortal Kombat X – Interview with Hans Lo

The last time I saw and played Mortal Kombat X was back in August at Gamescom. Then we had a great little sneak peek and play with new character Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade. Last week, more was announced as the story mode revealed multiple characters in a story set 25 years after the events of 2011′s Mortal Kombat... Read More »

EA Access: A Mid-Term Report

EA Access: A Mid-Term Report

Seven months almost to the day, EA took the bold step of releasing the EA Access service on Xbox One, offering discounts on EA digital purchases, early access trials of soon-to-be-released titles, and full games for you to download. The surprise announcement, coupled with the slightly cobbled-together nature of the service led many to quickly write... Read More »

Titan Souls – Hands On Preview

Titan Souls – Hands On Preview

Titan Souls is a very interesting game by three man team Acid Nerve and is being published by Devolver Digital. What started originally as a game jam project between friends has grown up somewhat and will make its debut on PC, PS Vita and PS4 in April. The premise is simple. Boss battles. The game is a series of boss battles against you, your sprit... Read More »

Life Is Strange: Episode One – Review

Life Is Strange: Episode One – Review

I hadn’t heard much about this game in the run up to its release other than it was a Square Enix game and you can control time. I’m a fan of the whole time travel/time control thing and it was only £3 so I thought, why not? The good thing about these episodic games is that if you don’t like the game you don’t lose out on tha... Read More »
