  • Review: Stasis 28th September 2015

    Stasis manages to entertain, disturb, challenge and disgust with equal measure. The story stumbles and some puzzles are tedious, but it is one hell of a scary experience and unlike any other recent horror game.Read More

  • Review: Destiny: The Taken King 27th September 2015

    The Taken King breathes new life into the troubled franchise. It adds a ton of new content and brings some much needed changes. In many ways it is what Destiny should have been in the first place, it’s just a bit unfortunate that it took a year to get there.Read More

  • Review: Persona 4: Dancing All Night 23rd September 2015

    Dancing All Night It combines music from one of the best soundtracks in gaming with great rhythm gameplay and manages to look super stylish in the process.Read More

  • Review: Mad Max 14th September 2015

    The best parts of Avalanche's Just Cause games combined with Mad Max’s crazy universe - a game that’s gorgeous to look at and tremendously fun to play.Read More

  • 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
