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 »

Ultimate NES Remix 3DS

Nintendo originally released the first of these games for digital download in December 2013 for the Wii U titled NES Remix, or Famicom Remix in Japan, with a sequel NES Remix 2, known as Famicom Remix 2, being released in April 2014. A further title was released, Ultimate NES Remix, for 3DS late last year which is the ... Read More »

Resident Evil HD – Review

Resident Evil HD – Review

I know I’ve mentioned Doom a lot on this site before, but the game that scared me the second most was the original Resident Evil. I could barely play it myself, relying on an older cousin to show me what the game was actually like due to my crippling fear of literally everything in that game. I wasn’t able ... Read More »

Saints Row 4 Re-Elected & Gat Out Of Hell – Review

Saints Row 4 Re-Elected & Gat Out Of Hell – Review

We here at TheGameJar have previously been very positive regarding 2013′s Saints Row 4, as well as previous Saints Row games. I personally however have never been in that bracket having never really experienced the franchise. I know, I’m a bad person but life, other games and just general laziness has kept ... Read More »

PES 2015 – Review

PES 2015 – Review

If you’re reading this, then I know exactly what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the answer. It’s the answer you’ve probably been looking for every year since around…2008? That was the year you could legitimately ask the question without being laughed out of the room. The question, of course, is which is b... Read More »

Assassins Creed Rogue Review

Assassins Creed Rogue Review

So as I’m one of the few people that don’t seem to have a next gen console I’m going to be reviewing 360 and 3DS games primarily but, on the plus side, that means I get to try out games like Assassins Creed Rogue and tell all you lucky people about it! The game is set in the mid-18th century during the French and India... Read More »

Never Alone – Review

Never Alone – Review

Sometimes we are blessed with video games that we have a vehicle, as critics, as designers and as players, with which we can experience art that no others have access to. There are parts of video games that you can argue transcend the emergent gameplay they inspire, or the visual treats and beautiful moments where musi... Read More »
