  • Review: Battlefield: Hardline 2nd April 2015

    Another in a long line of forgettable EA shooters. The worst thing you could say about a game is that you wouldn’t miss it. So long, Hardline.Read More

  • Review: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD 21st March 2015

    Type-0 HD is the most unique single-player Final Fantasy game available today, but inconsistent visuals and lazy remastered content pull it down from being an easy recommendation.Read More

  • Review: Ori and the Blind Forest 20th March 2015

    A well made 2D platformer with good level design and beautiful graphics. If you don’t mind the (at times) tooth-grinding hard difficulty and sub-par combat, then its easy to recommend this. Well worth your time and money. Read More

  • Review: Razer Chroma (Kraken 7.1, DeathAdder, BlackWidow) 18th March 2015

    Razer Chroma is a great idea, but it will really come into its own when game developers begin to adopt the SDK and use it in game to give gamers real-time visual feedback.Read More

  • Review: The Order: 1886 9th March 2015

    Uninspiring gameplay, a poorly told story, and zero replayability - The Order: 1886 fails on almost every count.Read More

  • Review: OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood 3rd March 2015

    Gameplay in OlliOlli 2 has been refined, the visuals are way better, performance is better, and this is all without even considering the new gameplay mechanics and levels.Read More

  • Review: WWE 2K15 (PS4) 9th December 2014

    Improved visuals and amazing core gameplay improvements are let down by massive cuts in content and modes that hold WWE 2K15 back from being a really good wrestling game.Read More

  • Review: Halo: The Master Chief Collection 26th November 2014

    It’s hard to imagine Microsoft leaving this collection in the dire straits it is right now. It probably will be what it was supposed to be a few weeks from now, but as things stand, it’s hard to recommend this to anyone.Read More

  • Review: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor 18th November 2014

    The sense of unpredictability and randomness of the Nemesis system, combined with visceral combat and a host of fun-to-use powers make it worth the price of admission.Read More

  • Review: Sunset Overdrive 29th October 2014

    It’s a triumph of kitschy presentation, meta-humour and gamer culture. If that isn’t reason enough, I don’t know what is.Read More

  • Review: Forza Horizon 2 13th October 2014

    With comprehensive control options and an endless number of things to do, it’s got everything you need to whet your appetite for all things on four wheels.Read More

  • Review: FIFA 15 30th September 2014

    You can argue about whether a football game should be simplistic or realistic, but with FIFA 15, EA has created an intriguing blend of both. It’s a game full of freedom for the player, but balance issues persist.Read More

  • Review: Xbox One 29th September 2014

    It simply boils down to what you want to play. If you’re looking for a (not so definitive) all-in-one solution to your media needs that happens to also have a solid roster of exclusive games, jump right in.Read More

  • Review: Corsair Vengeance K70 gaming keyboard 1st September 2014

    The K70 is perfect for gamers who want a no-nonsense backlit mechanical keyboard, but the lack of dedicated gaming keys may be a deal-breaker for many.Read More

  • Review: The Last of Us: Remastered 12th August 2014

    If going through the trials and tribulations of Joel and Ellie through the ruins of society and civilisation is something that can hook you in, then there's no reason to hold back from this purchase.Read More

  • Review: Unrest 23rd July 2014

    Unrest fumbles in crucial areas, with an abrupt ending, poor soundtrack, and odd pacing, but it is a bold attempt and it proves that original ideas can still showcase Indian culture well in video games.Read More

  • Review: Shovel Knight 7th July 2014

    If you’re against games that look like they were made for consoles from decades ago, Shovel Knight is probably not for you, but you will be missing out on one of the best platforming experiences in years.Read More

  • Review: Wolfenstein: The New Order 4th July 2014

    The New Order is a fun ride if you can stomach the cost of admission and quirks that go along with it. It’s refreshingly old school, much like the choice of vinyl over MP3.Read More

  • Review: Democracy 3 (iPad) 3rd July 2014

    A game everyone even remotely interested in politics should experience, and the iPad version is a complete and near-perfect port of the PC version.Read More

  • Review: The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II 20th June 2014

    If it weren't for other games in its genre, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II would make an easier recommendation. Pick up during a sale though, and you can't go wrong.Read More

  • Review: Watch Dogs 27th May 2014

    If you were expecting a game that's all action from the very beginning, be warned: Watch Dogs is somewhat of a slow burn. Throw in characters that are anything but cliché and dialogue that isn't gag-worthy, and you have a game that's rather competent.Read More

  • Review: ROTO 15th May 2014

    ROTO will win you over with its simplicity and the level of polish in its execution. Go download it already!Read More

  • Review: Go Kane! 8th May 2014

    It’s easy to see that a lot of work has gone into the concept of Go Kane! and its presentation, but its risk system feels random and unfair, making gameplay unnecessarily frustrating.Read More

  • Review: Child of Light 6th May 2014

    Barring a few issues with pacing and difficulty, Child of Light is a fantastic adventure that’s worth your time and energy.Read More
