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 »

Lords of the Fallen – Review

Lords of the Fallen – Review

Lords of the Fallen is a game that takes a lot of patience. It also takes time. It’s not a game you can casually pick up for a few hours and just enjoy, not unless you’re a hardcore, seasoned gamer who lives for the kind of sadomasachistic gameplay the genre typically provides. This multiple death action RPG, which pit... Read More »

Valkyria Chronicles PC – Review

Valkyria Chronicles PC – Review

Look, we all know it: Sega’s recent output has been kind of spotty. The Yakuza series is pretty reliable, but a lot of the titles they’ve developed or published otherwise have been pretty inconsistently received. When was the last time we were all able to agree on a good Sonic game? (It should have been Los... Read More »

Driveclub – Review

Driveclub – Review

Driveclub poses a question that is probably quite a pertinent one for this new generation of console gaming. It doesn’t mean to pose it, not in the slightest. And it possibly deserves a little more credit than what the question suggests but the question is there. Is it enough for a game, especially in the racing genre,... Read More »

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare – Review

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare – Review

It’s a little strange heading in to Call of Duty Advanced Warfare because I haven’t played a Call of Duty game in four years, my last being Black Ops. The series has come a long way in this, its first truly Next Gen outing. It hasn’t held back on its punches either by drafting big names like Kevin Spacey of American Be... Read More »

MX vs ATV Supercross – Review

MX vs ATV Supercross – Review

If you read our preview of MX vs. ATV: Supercross back in July, you’ll know a bit of the history behind that franchise. But we’ll give you a little bit of a recap just in case. Nordic Games is one of the many people who snapped up some properties after the great collapse of THQ. One such thing they did was ... Read More »

Shadow Warrior – Review

Shadow Warrior – Review

Shadow Warrior is of a different time and a different age. Yet it comes to us with the sheen and veneer of a new game. But it’s not just the license that makes this game ancient. Released last year on PC and given the next-generation port treatment, the now barely acceptable racial tropes of the mid 90s 3D Realms shoot... Read More »

The Evil Within – Review

The Evil Within – Review

I’m in something of a quandary over Shinji Mikami’s latest, The Evil Within (Bethesda, Xbox One/PS4). In around a thousand words’ time, I have to give this game a score, because that’s how reviews on this site work. I have a score in mind (and, of course, by now you’ll already know what it is), but I find myself lookin... Read More »

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition – Review

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition – Review

The way I look at Sleeping Dogs and this Definitive Edition release is thus: If you were an adolescent man in the early 2000’s you undoubtedly have them in the back of your DVD collection. Or might have recently sent them off to a trade-in site. I’m referring to the Hong Kong Legends DVD releases that showed some of th... Read More »

Review – Styx – Master of Shadows

Review – Styx – Master of Shadows

Styx, the Master of Shadows, is a goblin. To be precise he is the first goblin. In a fantasy world made up of elves and humans, Styx is there to rob them blind. Taken prisoner and forced to escape incarceration so he can steal the heart of a big underground tree – which the humans keep locked up and which the elv... Read More »

Review: D4 – Dark Dreams Don’t Die

Review: D4 – Dark Dreams Don’t Die

Picture LA Noire. Got that in your head now? The historical accuracy of the surroundings? The relatively staid nature of the lead character? The highly believable characters around Phelps who helped to flesh out Rockstar’s vision of 1940s Los Angeles? Good. Now, throw all that in the bin. This is a Swery65 game, son! H... Read More »

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments – Review

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments – Review

The legend of Sherlock Holmes is arguably much bigger than the character of Sherlock Holmes, although myth would be more of a pertinent description given that he is fictional. In recent times the harsh and terse nature of his personality has come through with the popular TV adaptation by the BBC and Steven Moffat. Even... Read More »

Destiny – Review

Destiny – Review

Destiny is quite possibly the most ambitious console game we have seen, other than Grand Theft Auto V. Quite the statement I know, especially given what you have already read elsewhere. The traditional review calls for positives followed by negatives and then a summary. But I think what is needed more is some objective... Read More »

Sixty Second Shooter Prime Review

Sixty Second Shooter Prime Review

November 22, 2005 is an important day in games history. Firstly, it was the day that the Xbox 360 launched. Secondly, it was the day on which Xbox Live Arcade became a legitimate platform for digital distribution on console (it had, of course, existed briefly on the original Xbox, but on a much smaller scale). Lastly, ... Read More »

Oddworld New N Tasty Review

Oddworld New N Tasty Review

“Another remake?” you say? Usually I would say the same but after the direction in which the Oddworld series took I am glad that Just Add Water decided to return to its roots and remake the original Abe’s Odyssey for PS4. Usually when a 2D-platform series makes it’s way into the 3D world the gameplay loses what made it... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Gods Will Be Watching – Review

TheIndieJar: Gods Will Be Watching – Review

Empathy Simulator seems to be a popular theme of games at the moment, and that exact title will probably show up next to ‘Grass Simulator’ or whatever trash shows up on Steam Greenlight these days. When you have fully formed characters and a well constructed plot, games are capable of breaking your heart. At it’s worst... Read More »
