  • Review: Shadowrun Hong Kong 2nd September 2015

    The worst you can say about it is that it's too similar to the last game in the series. But when the last game in the series was so phenomenally good, it's hard to chalk that up as a negative.Read More

  • Review: Batman: Arkham Knight 15th July 2015

    The gameplay elements have been streamlined to perfection, Gotham City has been realised beautifully, and the narrative is engaging all the way to its conclusion, despite a couple of hiccups.Read More

  • Review: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt 6th June 2015

    A gorgeous world to explore, an amazingly well-written and well-acted story, and addictive gameplay. The Witcher 3 is truly a landmark game – a gold standard for RPGs and open-world games alike.Read More

  • Review: Asus Strix DSP gaming headset 4th June 2015

    A combination of great sound and not-so-great design. The Asus Strix DSP ticks all the right boxes in terms of performance, but a lot of people will it uncomfortable to wear.Read More

  • Review: Kingston HyperX Cloud 2 gaming headset 12th May 2015

    The HyperX Cloud 2 is one of the most comfortable gaming headphones on the market today. It sounds fantastic too.Read More

  • Review: One More Run 2nd May 2015

    One More Run’s quick matches and no-nonsense presentation make it great for when you have a few minutes to kill, but if you’re looking for a wholesome cricket game for mobile, this isn't it.Read More

  • Review: Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China 30th April 2015

    Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is easily the best Assassin’s Creed in recent times. Apart from a few hiccups in its level design, it is definitely worth a playthrough for its beautiful visuals, well-told tale, and interesting gameplay mechanics.Read More

  • Review: Mortal Kombat X 24th April 2015

    Overall, Mortal Kombat X is a really great fighting game. The gameplay changes, character variations, and combat tweaks make it hold its own even next to more competitive fighting games.Read More

  • 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: 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: 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
