Halo Wars 2 review: You had me at Halo

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. The original Halo Wars was the best-selling and highest rated RTS game on console. Why? Because it refined the genre’s controls and gameplay for consoles, using its limitations as strengths; plus it didn’t hurt to be a Halo game at the height of the franchise’s popularity. But now that Halo has fallen a little to the wayside, Halo Wars 2 needs to ...[Read More]

Candleman Review – Wax on or wax off?

Reviewed on Xbox One Candleman is an indie platformer developed by Spotlightor Interactive.

It’s a charming world with some dark depth, despite the simplistic n...[Read More]

It spawned spin-off games...[Read More]

Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta impressions

I spent some time playing the Halo Wars 2 Blitz Beta this weekend.

Blitz is a very action-oriented gamemode. Battle...[Read More]

After teasing us at the last E3, Activision and Vicarious Vision have let the Bandicoot out of the crate at today’s Playstation Experience: In a follow-up post on the Playstation Blog, Game Director Dan Tanguay writes that the games had to be rebuilt from scratch us...[Read More]
