Thrustmaster T300 RS Steering Wheel – Review

Thrustmaster T300 RS Steering Wheel – Review

How to play racing games – Step One: Get a wheel. It may seem like a simple and obvious instruction and one that is only acceptable if you are a racing game nerd, but the truth is that certain video games come much more alive and enjoyable with a peripheral. Racing games are most definitely one of them. When we knew we... Read More »

LEGO Jurassic World – Review

LEGO Jurassic World – Review

If you had told the late Michael Crichton that his work would eventually become LEGO, he would have said “interesting, but please don’t let it be based on The Andromeda Strain because that movie has fucking bland colours”… Ok he probably wouldn’t have said that (it’s true though, watch the Robert Wise film it’s agonisi...

Wolfenstein The Old Blood – Review

Wolfenstein The Old Blood – Review

One of last years surprise hits was the return of Wolfenstein. The franchise came back with a bang, with critics and gamers, falling in love with the franchise once more. Now we have a prequel in the form of the Old Blood but can it deliver yet more Nazi killing FPS glory? The Old Blood is set in 1946 (as part of Wolfe... Read More »

Project Cars – Review

Project Cars – Review

We’ve been lucky enough to have checked out Project Cars a few times over the course of the past year. This review is going to confirm some things we’ve already said and probably you already know, which is that Project Cars is awesome. Of course I have to talk to you about this from the console perspective, but I’m no ... Read More »

Resident Evil Revelations 2 – Review

Resident Evil Revelations 2 – Review

Resident Evil 4 has a lot to answer for. It’s undoubtedly one of the best games of all-time in its own right. However, whilst it has been almost solely responsible for the rise of the third-person shooter, bringing with it a raft of some of the best games the last generation had to offer, it has perversely become a mil...

Bladestorm Nightmare – Review

Bladestorm Nightmare – Review

Back in 2007 Koei Tecmo released Bladestorm: The Hundred Year’s War. A historic tactical game set loosely around the Hundred Year’s war between England and France. Upon its original release it received mixed reviews, a bit like Marmite in some regards. Some people loved it, whilst others had less complimentary feelings... Read More »

Titan Souls – Review

Titan Souls – Review

We covered the mechanics of Titan Souls and the history of its conception in our preview back in March. At that point, we were able to play the introductory levels and get a feel for the art style in the game, the simplicity in its controls and also a great sense of the inspirations behind it. This was also the demo th... Read More »

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-impleme... Read More »

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. Bu... 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 surpr... 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 rele... 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 marry... Read More »

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 eclec... 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 sti... 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 y... Read More »

Cities: Skylines – Review

Cities: Skylines – Review

Balance. Cities: Skylines has it. Whilst it is absolutely awesome to create the huge, truly 3D, Megalopolis that we’ve all yearned for since Sim City 4, city simulation games are actually a giant puzzle of balance. When you make a city, it isn’t just cool looking at the buildings? Isn’t it great to fly down the streets... Read More »

Pier Solar and the Great Architects – Review

Pier Solar and the Great Architects – Review

Pier Solar and the Great Architects has one of the more interesting backstories of anything released in the last few months. Starting out as a 2010 Sega Megadrive release by a homebrew community (no, really), an HD remaster found its way onto PS3, PS4, PC, Mac, Linux, Ouya, Wii U, Xbox One, Dreamcast, Xbox 360, Android...

Evolve – Review

Evolve – Review

Having played Evolve back at Gamescom, I had a few worries. Come the Alpha and the recent open beta, I still had them. Come release day, I still had them. The thing is, I’ve heard a lot about Evolve. A lot of people have talked to me quite passionately about how good it was and how excited they were for it. Yet wheneve... Read More »
