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

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 »

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 »
