Fallout 4 – Review

Fallout 4 – Review

Fallout 4’s greatest strength is also at times its greatest weakness, which can be summed up/forgiven/excused/berated (delete as appropriate to your preference on this) as “being a Bethesda game.” Even since the initial reviews came out and having talked with many people about this, it has become a bit of a Marmite sub...

Star Wars Battlefront – Review

Star Wars Battlefront – Review

From the 17th to 19th Centuries, Nostalgia was thought of as a disease. If that’s the case then Star Wars is an epidemic. There isn’t a childhood memory amongst us that doesn’t involve Star Wars in some way, even if you aren’t a fan and your best mate over hyped it. But what’s incredible i... Read More »

WWE 2K16 – Review

WWE 2K16 – Review

As a wrestling fan, I feel equally as good about this year’s WWE game as I do bad about it. There has been a lot promised like a bigger roster, more creation options and just a general improvement on everything in the game. In many presentations and demonstrations we saw, this game was being referred to as “... Read More »

Christopher Brookmyre’s Bedlam – Review

Christopher Brookmyre’s Bedlam – Review

The games pastiche has become something of its own genre in recent years, as we’ve seen an increasing number of interactive love letters – games that wear their very clear influences on their very large sleeves – produced in recent years. Some of them work very well. Shovel Knight, for example, is held in incredi... Read More »

PES 2016 – Review

PES 2016 – Review

I’m just going to come out and say this straight up. PES 2016 is the best football game in years. It’s definitely the best football game of the past five years and definitely the best on this current generation of consoles. Is it the best ever? No, but that’s not because of anything the game does, mor... Read More »

WRC 5 – Review

WRC 5 – Review

It’s been a while since I’ve truly enjoyed throwing up the dirt, cutting hairpins and getting nostalgia for the old Subaru blue and gold colours. Sometimes it’s been sated by some excellent game modes and I have to say Forza Horizon 2 gave me some excellent car colours and choices, the Forza Horizon r... Read More »

Turtle Beach PX24 Headset – Review

Turtle Beach PX24 Headset – Review

There are quite a lot of headsets available and, for the price, this isn’t a bad deal at all. The market at the moment is full of differing prices, compatibility and brands making confusion rife for people probably buying one. We do like to do some hardware reviews for those of you who might not have the time to ... Read More »

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – Review

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – Review

There have been many, many words written and spoken about what is almost certainly Hideo Kojima’s last game in the Metal Gear Solid franchise. Many of those words are on the labyrinthine story that reaches a circular culmination of sorts. Perhaps even more have been written about an unnecessarily semi-naked female assa... Read More »

LEGO Dimensions – Review

LEGO Dimensions – Review

Before I begin this review of LEGO Dimensions, we need to set the level straight on a few things, which are the most talked about issues people have with the physical and financial concept behind the game. There’s been a lot of talk regarding how much this game is going to cost. There’s also been a lot of t... Read More »

FIFA 16 – Review

FIFA 16 – Review

FIFA 16 is a perfectly acceptable football game. Nothing more, nothing less. That’s why you see a 7 in that box over there. Anyone who tells you that it’s a bad game is objectively wrong, but those who proclaim it as the best football game ever are probably not being fully honest with you or themselves As seems to be t...

Forza Motorsport 6 – Review

Forza Motorsport 6 – Review

One of the things that has become apparent since we’ve had Forza Motorsport 6 in our lives is that Forza Motorsport 5 was a bloody well made game for an Xbox One launch title. Forza 6 pushes the franchise forward in an interesting, if not slightly pretentious, way that takes some of the best things from Forza Hor... Read More »

Minecraft Story Mode Ep.1 – Review

Minecraft Story Mode Ep.1 – Review

Minecraft: Story Mode is the new adventure from Telltale Games. If you’re a fan of Telltale’s more hard hitting, difficult choice-based stories like The Walking Dead then you might want to look away as this probably isn’t for you. However, if you like a good fun story with a slice of Minecraft, and Mi... Read More »

Cities Skylines After Dark – Review

Cities Skylines After Dark – Review

There is no secret here – we loved Cities Skylines. So what do you do when one of the best games of the year brings you an add-on that brings you more? Well, you rejoice, naturally as ‘After Dark’ is now here. Except that probably the biggest part of it is actually free. So what are you actually getti... Read More »

Metal Gear Solid V – We Need To Talk About Quiet

Metal Gear Solid V – We Need To Talk About Quiet

  This is the second of three pieces on Metal Gear Solid V – a huge game that would have been impossible to review after 12-15 hours. You can find the first piece here, with the final review to follow next week. So, I’m now over 22 hours in. Yet I’m somehow still only at 17% completion. You definitely can’t ... Read More »

Dishonored Definitive Edition – Review

Dishonored Definitive Edition – Review

I am one of those people. The ones who didn’t play Dishonored the first time around. I know I’m a terrible person but you’ve got to appreciate that whilst I was studying at one of those fancy rich educational establishments (a concrete block of a North London university) I was busy playing Halo 4, and...

Days Out – EGX (Eurogamer Expo)

Days Out – EGX (Eurogamer Expo)

In a new, irregular series of features, TheGameJar goes and visits gaming events and lets you know whether or not they’re any good, how much of your wallet you’ll have left and if you’ll enjoy them. It’s true that the forced move from the well known and relatively easy to get to Earls Court to Birmingham was a bi... Read More »

Trials Fusion – The Awesome Max Edition – Review

Trials Fusion – The Awesome Max Edition – Review

I’d always wanted to give Trials a go as I can remember playing a flash version online back in high school, which is way too long ago so I’ll stop remembering that now. What I do remember is how simple the concept was – Start at point A go fast to point B and don’t crash! Sounds simple but when ... Read More »

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain – Early Impressions

Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain – Early Impressions

Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a HUGE game. To give it the full review treatment after 10-15 hours would be to do it a disservice, so I’ll be doing so via this early impressions piece with a full review to follow in due course. There’s a moment, around eight hours into the ten and a half hours o... Read More »
