Batman: Arkham Knight – Review

Batman: Arkham Knight – Review

I want to start this review with a disclaimer. I do not follow Batman. I did not play the previous games. I don’t read the comics and I’ve only seen a couple of the films. But, did I enjoy the fuck out of this game? HELL YES! I was afraid that jumping into the Batman: Arkham series towards the end it’s cycle would have a severe affect on how well I became captured within the stor...[Read More]

Lego Jurassic World – Review

Lego Jurassic World – Review

Return to Isla Nublar in the latest addition to the Lego series. Welcome, to Jurassic World! Sticking true to the Lego video game traditions, Lego Jurassic World puts a plasticky-bricky twist on our favourite dinosaur infested islands featured in the Michael Crichton-inspired films. Of course, like all the Lego games, they come complete with their own charm, humour and innocence. Lego Jurassic Wor...[Read More]

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition – Review

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition – Review

Revamping the graphics to a tasty 1080p, with a sprinkling of 60fps on the side, Capcom have brought Devil May Cry 4 back to our screens for another go round… It has to be said that of the series, DMC4 was sadly not one of my favourites. Riddled with a plethora of annoying and repetitive puzzles and senseless amounts of backtracking, playthroughs would often feel laboured and not particularl...[Read More]

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Review

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Review

Over two decades have graced us since ID Software gave us Wolfenstein 3D which kick started the Nazi carnage. Wolfenstein 3D has had a long-lasting effect on the FPS genre and in the past twenty years FPS’s on the rise took great detail from Wolfenstein 3D, as it was a game that set the benchmark. Indeed, the foundations of the genre were built into a winding series of tunnels and bunkers owned by...[Read More]

Lifeless Planet – Review

Lifeless Planet – Review

As the name suggests; Lifeless Planet, is set on a desolate, isolated and extremely lonely rock in the outer borders of space. Developed by the team at Stage 2 Studios, Lifeless Planet takes the simplistic idea of being stranded and begins to play mind games with you. You wake in the aftermath of an unsuccessful scouting mission as a scientist turned astronaut on what appears to be the hot, barren...[Read More]

Project Cars – Review

Project Cars – Review

Project Cars they say. One for the “petrol heads” they say. Does it really deliver in the way we prayed and anticipated? Developed by Slightly Mad Studios a group of people like me who love cars and backed by Bandai, Project Cars was meant to be the game which delivered the real driving and track racing experience. Project Cars has been on many gamer’s lips over the last year, creating...[Read More]

The Swapper – Review

The Swapper – Review

Developed by Finnish studio, Facepalm Games The Swapper is a smart but patronizingly simple side-scrolling puzzle game. The Swapper pits you, the gamer, as a generic spaceman that crash lands on a mysterious but seemingly populated planet. The plot, if you read into it is actually quite menacing. The planet is inhabited by hordes of murderous telepathic rocks. Yup, rocks. Erm… I’m not ...[Read More]

Aaru’s Awakening – Review

Aaru’s Awakening – Review

If I had to summarise Aaru’s Awakening in one word it would be “beautiful”. Not just aesthetically, but emotionally as well. The storyline, the graphics, the style and the characters are just so well thought and well designed that you’ll instantly be pulled into the world and gripped within moments. From the get go, the narration of an endless battle between four gods; Dawn...[Read More]

Tower of Guns – Review

Tower of Guns – Review

I had never before played an FPS dungeon crawler until only a month or so ago when I was introduced to Ziggurat, which went on to score a fairly impressive 8.5 out of 10. Unbelievably, only a few weeks later I’d be presented with yet another one of these quirky titles. Welcome to the Tower of Guns review. In what can only be described as a cartoony, cell-shaded salute to the style and design...[Read More]
