Reviewed on: PlayStation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Real-Time Strategy games are pretty scarce on console platforms these days, with no heavy hitters of the genre really appearing since Halo Wars and Red Alert 3 from the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 days (although the upcoming Halo Wars 2 may change this). This is primarily due to the genre relying heavily on the classic mouse-n-keyboard set up ...[Read More]

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by Ubisoft. I should probably open this review by saying that I have played a LOT of Werewolves, as in the classic card game that turns friends into mortal enemies when you lie to their face. So I was more than familiar with the concept, and when it was announced Ubisoft were publishing a VR version developed by Red Storm Entertainment, I was intrigued. A game of dec...[Read More]

Reviewed on: 3DS. Copy supplied by publisher. A wise man once said “All you need to make a movie is a gun and a girl”. He also said he didn’t want a North American visa because it would take too long to fly there (although he eventually did). The man in question is the great film-maker Jean-Luc Godard but curiously I find his view to be a little short sighted. To be fair, he said this roughly arou...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. 11 years after the release of the artistic masterpiece that was Shadow of the Colossus on Playstation 2, developer Fumito Ueda has released his long gestating game: The Last Guardian. Trapped in development hell for many years and even thought to be cancelled at one point before making a grand return at E3 in 2015, The Las...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. It’s been 10 years since Dead Rising graced the Xbox 360, introducing the world to zombie mashing action. Dead Rising 4  revisits the original in a lot of ways, the story unfolds in Willamette Colorado, it has a shopping mall and Frank West once again is the protagonist, but not as you know him. Original voice actor Terence J. Rotolo has bee...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. When your game has been in development for more than 10 years, has had name changes and several delays, it’s hard enough to live up to the hype. When your game is one of the most famous, successful, and highly anticipated RPG series of all time, it’s even more of a challenge. This is the mammoth task that falls on Square Enix̵...[Read More]

Reviewed on PS4, copy supplied by Ubisoft. Kicking off with a retro interface and 80s music, one thing is pretty clear when you boot up Watch Dogs 2, it’s nothing like the overly serious and gloomy original. The predictable story of Aiden Pearce has been replaced with a tongue in cheek look at hacking, and it’s something that the series sorely needed to regain favour of the public. The...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Let me get something out of the way here first: I don’t really like racing games. Or at least ones that are considered “realistic” racing games. I’ve certainly enjoyed racing titles in the past, particularly Burnout Paradise on the Playstation 3, but it’s one of those games where all the cars have jet b...[Read More]

This article originally appeared as an impressions piece on October 13, but has since been removed and updated with my final thoughts in this full review here. Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Well, you can all rest assured that Hangar 13’s Mafia III is a lengthy experience because, as I mentioned in my initial impressions, it took me some 10 hours to pass the introduc...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. The Thief series is one of my favourites of all time. Up to and including Deadly Shadows, I’ve always found it to be the best overall stealth game around, mixing the immersion of FPS with the inherent tension of trying to remain undetected whilst you move like a ghost through the shadows. The series boasted fantastic level design and so...[Read More]

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. There are two kinds of people in this world: people’s whose life-long dream is to be Batman and people who are filthy liars and cannot be trusted. I’m not going to get too bogged down in a discussion as to why Batman is the best superhero character there is, because you either already agree with me or you never will and you’ll continue on with your wro...[Read More]

Reviewed on PC & PS4, PS4 copy supplied by publisher. The second you boot up Battlefield 1 you’re introduced to a series of soldiers who lose their lives no matter how well you play. The quick succession of deaths and the chaos fuelled muddy setting is designed to do one thing, show you the horrors of war in one of the darkest periods of the 20th Century. It’s done incredibly well,...[Read More]

Batman Arkham Knight: A Short affair with the Batgirl DLC

– Charlie Braithwaite The best analogy for Batman: Arkham Knight’s first DLC offering is that of an Easter egg, no not a cheeky little DC universe surprise, but an actual chocolate egg. Looks good, tastes okay, but my god is it hollow. Naturally minor spoilers for all of the Arkham games/the new DLC lie ahead. Enter at your own peril. As we have discussed A Matter of Family had the pot...[Read More]

agar.io or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the blob

– Dominic Powell Having just finished last semesters exams, agar.io is like an old friend. An old friend that lures you into their house with promises like ‘you can do that essay in 12 hours, don’t even worry about it!’ Agar.io has got to be the best procrastination game I’ve ever played. To the untrained eye, agar.io looks like a bunch of different sized, different c...[Read More]

Rocket League: Destruction derby meets football

– Luke Chandler If you’re the sort of person who usually sits in front of a screen in a darkened room, chances are you’ve seen the name Rocket League pop up on various online publications and message boards. The game has generated a large amount of hype, fueled by a dedicated fan base. I am not really a fan of sports games, so when I first heard of Rocket League, It didn’t seem l...[Read More]

Batman: Arkham Knight review

– Tom Heath I’m Batman… This thought ran through my mind as I stood perched atop a fire escape railing, the cold Gotham rain pelting my billowing cape, watching a group of thugs exchanging banter. They had no idea I was there; they had no idea they were prey. I scanned the group. Two thugs held assault rifles, one was big and muscular, the last held a club. Using my distruptor ri...[Read More]
