The Elder Scrolls Online Review

The Elder Scrolls Online Review

 A thousand years before the Dragonborn was summoned to the Throat of the World and around 800 years before Uriel Septim was slain and the gates of Oblivion opened up around Cryodiil, there was you, caught in the events of the Elder Scrolls Online. The Daedric prince Molag Bal is realising his machinations of world dom... Read More »

SingOn Review

SingOn Review

This is the strange thing about this review – SingOn isn’t strictly a game. I mean there are gaming elements to it of course, but the truth of it is this is more of an app than a game. SingOn is a karaoke ‘game’ that is coming for the PS3 this week for its initial release. However its plans on household dominatio... Read More »

Thief Review

Thief Review

When you’re stood on rooftops, cloaked in shadows, with a host of gadgets and skills at your disposal, The City is your playground; no house is locked tight enough, no item is too well guarded, and no safe is uncrackable. You’re Garrett, a Master Thief, clever and cunning, outsmarting your foes to reach you... Read More »

Titanfall Review

Titanfall Review

“Titanfall ey? Coming over here, taking our shooty bang bang action. It’s just not on, is it? We’ve got our Call of Duty and Battlefield already. We don’t need none of this foreign robot muck, with it’s auto-aiming pistols and talking face boxes up in the corner, as if we’re living in some fantasy land. Not for me, tha... Read More »

Monster Legacy Review

Monster Legacy Review

Nintendo’s recent struggles have provoked speculation about Nintendo games appearing on mobile platforms as a way to boost the ailing giant’s income. Thankfully for Monster Legacy, a Pokémon game appearing on iOS doesn’t look to be happening any time soon. Essentially spawning an entire RPG sub-genre, the Pokémon serie... Read More »

The Lego Movie Videogame Review

The Lego Movie Videogame Review

When I took on this review for The Lego Movie Videogame, I had a very specific idea for how to do it – I was going to get my 6-year-old son to play the game, have him talk about it, then transcribe it with translations and the odd observation of my own. Well, that idea lasted for about two hours. He didn’t like it (for... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Luftrausers Review

TheIndieJar: Luftrausers Review

There was a game a while back called Altitude that had 2D plane combat in multiplayer servers. It was really good and I spent many hours shooting missiles at the bombers and doing fancy tricks to avoid other players. Luftrausers is the single player that I wish Altitude had. Score attacking, massive explosions and scre... Read More »

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster Review

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster Review

HD remasters of past games are becoming somewhat of a regular occurrence these days. Various trilogies from the PS2 era have been re-released in glorious HD on the PS3, but none thus far have been as important as this. Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 have been released together, fully re-mastered – both graphical... Read More »

TheIndieJar: 10 Second Ninja Review

TheIndieJar: 10 Second Ninja Review

10 Second Ninja (available on Steam, £6.99, Dan Pearce/Mastertronic) is frustrating as hell. Stressful at times even. I’m almost certain I’ll never truly master it. It makes me hate my own stupid middle-aged hands. It might also be the best game I’ve played in the first eight weeks of 2014. From Dan P... Read More »

HAWKEN Review

HAWKEN Review

Mech games are coming back. Rising from the ashes of a defunct genre like a metallic phoenix are games like Titanfall, Mechwarrior Online, and now HAWKEN. These games are all taking radically different approaches to portraying mech combat: Titanfall looks to harmonize the distinct playstyles of infantry and mech, Mechw... Read More »

A History of the Ghostbusters in Video Games

A History of the Ghostbusters in Video Games

As you may have been made aware via the surprisingly positive outpouring of support and memorial posts, American comedy actor Harold Ramis recently passed away. Not to disparage anything else he’s done, but if you’re about my age and reading this, the first movie that comes to mind when thinking of Mr. Rami... Read More »

South Park: The Stick of Truth Review

South Park: The Stick of Truth Review

When I was in secondary school whispers of an adult cartoon shown late at night, on a channel my family didn’t own, began to surface. Quotes in a ‘fat voice’ were thrown across the classroom to a few giggles amongst those that had been fortunate enough to witness last night’s episode. As the popularity grew, toys of sm...

Tim and Andy Take On Strider – Review

Tim and Andy Take On Strider – Review

For a series with so few official releases, the name “Strider” can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. The majority of gamers out there will remember him as the fast purple guy from Marvel vs. Capcom, others may recall his absolutely insane arcade debut (and accompanying near-perfect Genesis port), and a select gr...

TheIndieJar: Toast Time Review

TheIndieJar: Toast Time Review

There’s some really neat things about playing games on the iOS/Android platforms. It’s that they have the three things that consoles and PC’s can only dream of: An easy intuitive control system, mobility/accessibility and the ability to keep things wonderfully simple. Toast Time, from Force of Habit is a proper g... Read More »

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 Review

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 Review

Castlevania was somewhat of a cult classic in the gaming world. The series has spawned over 20 titles – the first dating as far back as 1986 – and more recently has undergone a reboot in the form of the Lords of Shadow saga. The first in this saga is probably my favourite of all Castlevania games, if not one of my favo... Read More »
