  • 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

  • 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: 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: 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
