Call of Duty: Ghosts – Review

It seems like such a long time ago that I was staring in awe at the graphical prowess of Call of Duty 2 on my brand spanking new Xbox 360. In reality, it was only 2005. But look at how far we’ve come. In my mind, Call of Duty 2 is still the best game…

Battlefield 4 review

Battlefield 4 Review

Developers are facing a difficult dilemma right now. Do they develop games for the next generation, or for the old generation? Or do they attempt some kind of mix of the two? Developing a game to run on the Xbox One and PS4 has obvious advantages; they have so much more power to play with….

FIFA 14 Tips and Strategies to Help You Win (Part 1)

So FIFA 14 is here. We all know what that means. It means a bunch of people complain about the changes before playing for a couple of weeks and realising that the changes are actually an improvement. Every. Single. Year. That said, FIFA 14’s changes are the most radical we have seen since FIFA 10….

Batman: arkham origins – review

Batman: Arkham Origins – Review

The Arkham series (Arkham Asylum, Arkham City and, now, Arkham Origins) has, over the last 4 years, reinvigorated Batman as a serious game. Arguably, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are the best superhero games in recent memory. Unlike most superhero games, they were not just spin-offs of films. They were made with real love of…

GTA V Review

It’s difficult to know where to start with GTA V. As a reviewer, I want my opening gambit to not only capture my reader but to also summarize nicely whatever game I happen to be reviewing at the time. Nowadays, a popular method among game journalists is to describe, in vivid detail, a small nugget…

Review: saints row iv

Review: Saints Row IV

The Saints Row franchise has never really been known for its subtlety. From pimp canes and samurai swords, to dildo bats and mollusk launchers, the Saints Row series has introduced us to ever increasing cast of bat-shit-crazy weapons, characters and story-lines. In this regard, Saints Row IV doesn’t disappoint. In fact, it rather makes the…

GTA V Multiplayer Details Released

With just a month to go until GTA V is finally delivered into our greedy, clutching mitts, Rockstar have recently released details on the much talked about multiplayer. And it’s big news.

Another Xbox One U-turn – Microsoft Confirms Indie Developers Will Be Able to Self-Publish

Another day, another policy Xbox One U-turn. It’s become a familiar story. Back in June, after the phenomenal backlash against their used-game and online authentication policies, Microsoft  execs performed a remarkable turn-around in announcing that they would be scrapping these policies. Whether you agree with the u-turn or not (and it’s become clear in recent…

Dark review

DARK Review

I’m just going to go ahead and say this from the outset – DARK is not a good game. It’s so bad, in fact, that I couldn’t even bring myself to finish it. I tried. I really did. I just couldn’t do it. Is that unprofessional of me? Maybe, but honestly, at this point, I…

Metro last light review

Metro Last Light Review

Metro Last Light is not your standard FPS affair. This is not a run-and-gun game. Rather, it rewards slow, patient and methodical play. While there is certainly enough action and bullet slinging to satisfy your adrenaline cravings, Metro Last Light’s greatest strengths lie in its details and its small, quiet moments. Metro Last Light –…

Xbox one – it’s not all bad

Xbox One – It’s Not All Bad

Okay, we were all a little disappointed with the Xbox One launch for a number of reasons. There weren’t enough games on show, and it was too heavily focused on the media functions of the machine, and it raised more questions than it answered – where was the passion and creativity of game developers? These…

Star trek: the game review

Star Trek: The Game Review

Star Trek: The Game, what can really be said? As a general rule, movie tie-in games are a bit rubbish. As with any general rule, of course, there are exceptions. The original Golden Eye for the N64, for example. Or The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay for the Xbox. But these are anomalies….
