  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 - 'Smoke and Mirrors' Review

     While Episode 2 of Telltale's adventure-game take on Fables is a step forward in narrative quality from 'Faith,' Sheriff Bigby's investigations into the supposed murder of Snow White are a bit by-the-numbers, gameplay-wise. The Wolf Among Us, then, feels like an experimental game series for th...

  • Surge Deluxe Review: PS Vita puzzler is an absolute gem

    There is something very special about Surge Deluxe that makes it one of the best puzzle games I have played in a very long time. Created by Futurlab Studios, the puzzler is a definitive edition of the original classic Surge, which was a pretty damn amazing mini when it was first released. This new e...

  • Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Review: Goku and chums pack a punch

    The anime series Dragon Ball Z has been around since 1989 spawning multiple games on multiple systems over the years. While the majority of these titles have mainly followed the main series and have been one-on-one fighters, there have been a few games over the years that have been slightly differen...

  • Backgammon Blitz Review

    Now seems as a good a time as any for a confession. Before I got my grubby hands on Backgammon Blitz, I hadn’t played, or knew how to play the game in the slightest. Fortunately for me and my lacking faculties, Backgammon Blitz is a solid, if unspectacular take on this strange little game of b...

  • Adam's Venture Chronicles PS3 review

    There are two puzzle games in recent memory that blended progressive, challenging puzzle mechanics with engrossing stories. Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure and Catherine. In an attempt to join the illustrious company of games such as these, the Adam’s Venture franchise make...

  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Review: Lara's PS4 debut is a shining triumph

    Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider revival last year wasn’t just a monumental success in terms of sales and critical reception; it re-established one of gaming’s most iconic heroines in Lara Croft, making the dexterous archaeologist relevant once again after a major career lull. Sure, T...

  • Age of Zombies PS Vita Review

    The zombie fad is a breed of mania that, for some, has exhausted its trendy craze and is running on its last legs. But in a world where undead armies plague the course of history, spreading its blight in the form of zombie ninjas, mummies, and dinosaurs – one can’t help but retire this l...

  • Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD Review

    The HD scheme has been palpable in the last couple years, and the only game series to release a console version on current dedicated gaming hardware has been the God of War handheld series. The team at Ubisoft Montreal has its sights on reaching similar success with the formerly PlayStation ...

  • OlliOlli Review

    As I put in my first few hours with OlliOlli, I didn't love it. The sound of my skateboarder hitting the pavement and skidding across it like a rock skipping along a pond was the best trick I was pulling off. This will surely happen to you; but I assure you, once everything starts to click, you will...

  • Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse - Episode One Vita review

    After a long seven-year gap, the Broken Sword series is back hoping to emulate the success of its early years when the point-and-click classic was praised for its beautiful art direction, gripping conspiracy-driven narrative and thought-provoking gameplay. Thanks to a Kickstarter-funded pro...

  • Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God Review

    Games and food go together like World of Warcraft and Hot Pockets, so is it any surprise games about cooking exist? Japan, in all its wacky wisdom, has taken it a step further, birthing an RPG around the glorious quest of making the ultimate curry recipe. In Sorcery Saga: The Curse of the Great Curr...

  • Giotech EX-06 Wireless Stereo Headphones Review - PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC Review

    The EX-06 wireless HD stereo headphones are the ‘big daddies’ of Giotech’s current range of audio-enhancing peripherals. Costing approximately £70, these premium pair of cans are compatible with PS3, 360, PS4 and PC and boast an impressive feature-set aimed at providing consu...

  • War Thunder Review: Achtung, Spitfire!

    The PlayStation 4 launch line-up may have suffered from some notable blemishes in the form of several major delays (InFamous: Second Son, DriveClub and Watch Dogs), but that has actually worked to War Thunder’s advantage. Had those aforementioned games seen release, Gaijin Entertainment's comp...

  • Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers Review

    There's a solidity to Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers, but that's about it. The franchise isn't exactly one of the biggest Japanese exports (and, especially in gaming, Japan isn't currently in vogue), but it clearly has e a fan-base to have survived from 1986 to now. However, fans will probably be let d...

  • Don't Starve PS4 Review

    Klei Entertainment’s mantra of ‘’Survive! Collect! Attack!’’ goes a great length in showing the philosophy which underpins 2014’s first PlayStation 4 indie offering, ‘Don’t Starve’. Originally a breakaway success on PC last year, the title &ndash...

  • Zen Pinball 2 PS4 Review

    The arrival of legendary games such as Space Invaders and Pac-Man almost wiped pinball off the face of the planet overnight, swiftly replacing the flipper-happy pursuit as the favourite pastime of arcade fun-seekers country-wide. Video games were the new cool and it wasn’t until the...

  • Escape Plan PS4 Review: Leaping onto a larger platform

    Escape Plan makes the jump from PS Vita to a larger, more mainstream audience on the PlayStation 4. The port of the Vita launch title retains the crisp black and white visual design, reminiscent of a Tim Burton movie, the minimalist story with wacky humor, and the challenging puzzle-platform gamepla...

  • UFO Dad Review: Charming mobile match-three puzzler

    Puzzle games are a dime a dozen. From Bejeweled to the current champ Candy Crush Saga, a lot of developers have tried to cash in on the booming mobile games market. The team at Edit Mode have taken a more conservative approach, releasing their newest match-three puzzle platformer UFO Dad only on Pla...

  • The Walking Dead: Season 2 - Episode 1, "All That Remains" Review

    Telltale's episodic return to its Walking Dead interpretation feels so much like 2012's entries that it's easier to see "All That Remains" as just the next piece of an ongoing saga of narrative mastery. Sure, Clementine's return to your PlayStation console stands well on its own as post-ap...

  • flOw PS4 Review: Eat or be eaten in 1080p

    It is a welcome treat that shortly after Flower joining PlayStation 4’s repertoire, gamers can now enjoy flOw on their shiny new console. In flOw, you play as an aquatic organism that develops by eating other organisms--or becomes weaker by being eaten. Don’t worry, it’s nothing g...

  • Blacklight: Retribution Review: Top-flight free-to-play multiplayer shooter

    Back in 1999, a free-to-play beta was released on PC that bucked the trend of AAA first-person shooters. Counter-Strike only went on to become the most popular FPS for years on PC. Blacklight: Retribution reminds me of Counter-Strike in many ways. Zombie Studios is attempting to carve out its own sp...

  • Ys: Memories of Celceta Review: the perfect tonic for Vita-owning JRPG fans

    Sometimes, a good ol' JRPG is exactly what one needs, and a hearty, pocket-size time sink like Ys: Memories of Celceta is hard to pass up. If JRPGs are on the menu, this is the one to order. Plus, the fast pace of the game's combat could even coax a few on-the-fence gamers to think again about skipp...

  • Toki Tori review: charming, challenging and entertaining platform-puzzler

    Much like its titular hero, Toki Tori by Dutch developer Two Tribes, is bit of an odd bird. Proving to be a more grey-matter affirming affair than initial impressions might yield, Toki Tori on PlayStation 3 is a sleek re-imaging of the 2001 Gameboy Color title of the same name. Crucially keeping th...

  • Farming Simulator Review: Watching the digital grass grow

    Ah, the simple life. 5.00 a.m. wake-ups, 12-hour days of seeding and threshing fields, and then the long weeks and months of waiting to reap what is sown. Welcome to the farming life in Farming Simulator on the PlayStation 3…just without the cow manure. As the name of the title suggests this...

  • Warframe PS4 Review: the best F2P title on next-gen consoles

    Free to Play may not be something console gamers are used to hearing, but with the launch of the PlayStation 4, Sony has made big a push to not only get triple A titles but bring forth a plethora of Free to Play titles that have dominated the PC space for years to its next gen console. Warframe is...
