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 »

Worms Battlegrounds – Review

Worms Battlegrounds – Review

Team 17 returns! And what delights have they brought with them? A new Alien Breed, maybe? Or, even better, A NEW SUPERFROG??? Nope…they’ve brought out a new Worms game. I know, it’s a shocker, right? To be fair, Team 17 must be doing something right. We’re now 19 years removed from the very first Worms game, and yet th... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Super Time Force – Review

In Suepr Tiem For…damn it…let me start again. In Super Time Forks…oh, come on now! Ok, one more time. Im Syper Yim…AAAARRRRGGGHHH! Isn’t it frustrating, when you make mistakes over and over again? Super Time Force (yes! Finally nailed it!) takes that frustration and makes it the core tenet of a mindbending puzzle platf... Read More »

TheIndieJar: Kero Blaster Review

TheIndieJar: Kero Blaster Review

The gaming industry is finally getting to the point where we can reflect fondly on the ‘old days’, and boy are we. The majority of indie titles these days (as soon as the term ‘indie’ began to indicate something more than ‘Xbox Live Arcade Robotron clone’) try to intentionally harken... Read More »

Stick It To The Man – Review

Stick It To The Man – Review

Stick It To The Man is the latest game from Swedish development studio Zoink! A what a quirky little delight it is… on the outset. You might have heard or seen comparisons between Stick it to the Man to games like Grim Fandango and Pshyconaughts, and I can confirm this to be true, in both art direction and in com... Read More »

Watch Dogs – Review

Watch Dogs – Review

So the thing you might be thinking, especially if you’ve read other reviews of Watch Dogs or if you’re hearing stories whilst waiting to buy it, is that Watch Dogs is disappointing to the hype it created. Of course there was a huge amount of hype, it was a delayed next generation launch title! But ultimately it’s creat... Read More »

Wolfenstein: The New Order – Review

Wolfenstein: The New Order – Review

When I first played Wolfenstein back at Eurogamer, there was dozens of computers set up and only a handful of people were playing it. Being the person that actively hates queuing, I dived onto a machine and experienced an alright looking B-Tier shooter. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some middle of the road shooting act...

The Walking Dead: In Harm’s Way – Review

The Walking Dead: In Harm’s Way – Review

As one comes to The Walking Dead for story, rather than gaming mechanics, I will spoil some various story points below. Sorry. The best villains are the ones you can sympathise with – They walk the grey area between understanding and evil that you can kind of see where they are coming from. Although sometimes you...
