  • 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

  • Review: Trials Fusion 30th April 2014

    If you have never played a Trials game, this is well worth looking into, but for someone who played Trials Evolution to death, it’s hard to recommend this as an upgrade of any sort.Read More

  • Review: Dark Souls 2 9th April 2014

    For better or for worse, it’s still dense and obtuse and largely unforgiving. And it’s still an intensely exhilarating and rewarding experience. It’s still Dark Souls at heart.Read More

  • Review: Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster 8th April 2014

    With over 200 hours of content, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster should be an instabuy for any FF fan or fan of the RPG genre.Read More

  • Review: Don Bradman Cricket 14 4th April 2014

    Don Bradman Cricket 14 isn’t here just to fill a void, but with all its fresh ideas, it’s here to define the genre. Forget what you loved before; this is how cricket games should be.Read More

  • Review: Infamous: Second Son 24th March 2014

    There isn’t an open-world game out there that plays as well or looks as good as Infamous: Second Son, but it's held back by rigidity and lack of imagination in missions and progression.Read More

  • Review: Titanfall 19th March 2014

    It’s a one-trick pony that does a hell of a trick, but it's a trick that isn’t going to keep you entertained for long.Read More

  • Review: Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes 18th March 2014

    To everyone but the hardcore Metal Gear fans, this is a wanton cash grab. This should have been a demo or, at the very least, an add-in with another game.Read More

  • Review: Need for Speed: Rivals 5th December 2013

    Rivals is one of the better Need for Speed games to come around in recent years, but that really isn’t saying much, with the series being reduced to a speck in the rear-view mirrors of the likes of Grid and ForzaRead More

  • Review: WWE 2K14 2nd December 2013

    If you consider yourself a fan or have been a fan before, this game is just so worth it and feels like a thank you to the hardcore fans.Read More

  • Hardware review: PlayStation 4 24th November 2013

    Yes, next-gen is here, but with some strings attached and conditions that apply.Read More

  • Review: Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag 23rd November 2013

    A polished and well put together game, and while it might not set the world on fire, there is something to be said for consistency.Read More

  • Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts 12th November 2013

    With the generational transition just a couple of weeks away, you’d have thought that Infinity Ward and Activision would have brought their A game. Instead, we’re back treading familiar waters.Read More

  • Review: Batman: Arkham Origins 28th October 2013

    Arkham Origins might not be the superhero game you want, or one you expected, but it’s entertaining enough to bookend the Arkham trilogy in a manner befitting its predecessors.Read More

  • Review: F1 2013 12th October 2013

    A suitable culmination of Codemasters’ iterative efforts over the past half decade, but the much hyped F1 Classics mode is lacklustre and halfhearted.Read More
