  • Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Review: a captivating thriller guilty of magnificence

    Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc’s unusualness doesn’t end with just its name. It’s a visual novel game containing a premise not common in the genre. Here you are not trying to woo one of many cutesy-looking moé girls or trying to save the entire world. No, in Danganronpa, y...

  • Dante's Inferno Review

    Fighting your way through an adaptation of what is widely considered one of the greatest works of world literature is uncharted territory for a videogame. So when it was announced Visceral Games and EA were working on a game based on the poem Dante's The Divine Comedy, it's easy to see why we were a...

  • Dark Sector Review

    “It’s time for heads to roll.” Digital Extremes’ latest title, Dark Sector, which is being published by D3 Publisher, decided to take that quote and make it literal. Their new sci-fi, action packed, third-person shooter seems to do everything right and very little wrong. From...

  • Dark Souls 2 Review - Welcome to hell

    I feel emotionally drained. Dark Souls 2 gave me hope. It beckoned me toward a glorious sunrise and calming waters into a tranquil haven. A quaint wooden shack, a beautiful panoramic view across the mountains and a warm glowing fire reassured me that everything was going to be okay. It took me by th...

  • Dark Souls review

    I can’t stop thinking about Dark Souls. When I’m not playing From Software's action-RPG I’m yearning for it, yet when I am playing it I’m like a lost soul wishing there was someone I could turn to for help in this lonely, unforgiving place. I knew it would be hard – Dem...

  • Dark Void Review

    Dark Void saw some significant hype leading to its release, though ultimately this was unjustified in a final product marred by shoddy gameplay mechanics and a decidedly lackluster storyline. That’s not to say the concept behind the game wasn’t solid – aerial combat, a jetpack, and...

  • Darksiders II Review

    If 2010’s Darksiders was successful by borrowing ideas from gaming’s greatest franchises, then the sequel is an even greater success if only because it perfects some of those tried and trusted ideas. It’s a hodgepodge of exhilarating third-person combat set in an enormous world whe...

  • Darksiders Review

    The video game industry seems to have an emphatic love affair with the end of the world. You’ll find that not much has changed with the start of 2010; the apocalypse theory is alive and well, albeit growing more than a little old. Darksiders takes the end of the world theory, and runs with it ...

  • Datura Review

    After wrapping up my first play through of Datura, I wasn’t quite sure what to think – it really is that unique. However, one thing that was abundantly clear is that I hadn’t played anything like this on PlayStation Network, and am not likely to for quite some time either. An a...

  • DC Universe Online Review

    Early adopters beware: DC Universe Online is typical of any subscription-based MMO that’s in its infancy. Though we’re promised an evolving world with brand new areas to explore, new characters to interact with and tons of new missions, it isn’t going to happen overnight. Likewise,...

  • de Blob 2 Review

    THQ’s de Blob series seems perfectly suited to an audience of casual game-playing Wii owners. The 2008 Wii-exclusive was the type of leisurely platform-puzzler that you could switch on for your kids to play on a Sunday afternoon; you could just sit back and enjoy the ambiance of its bright vis...

  • Dead Island Review

    Dead Island has been in development for a fair few years, almost causing the Techland zombie title to fly off the radar completely. Then suddenly, the game was thrust into the limelight earlier this year with that trailer, getting everybody talking about it. However, the trailer ended up having no b...

  • Dead Island Riptide review - what's the best way to kill a zombie?

    What's the best way to kill a zombie? Maybe you could use an electrified samurai sword, a fire-spitting shotgun or even a flaming shovel? Well, Dead Island: Riptide, the sequel to Deep Silver’s survival horror RPG, gives you the chance to try all these and more as you fight for your life to es...

  • Dead Nation Review

    If there’s one thing that videogames have most definitely taught us over the years, it’s how to kill zombies. If hordes of the undead ever do rise from their graves and flood our city streets, you can guarantee we'll be among the first in line at our local sports shop to pick up a ba...

  • Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition PS4 review

    Nowadays, zombie-inspired videogames are a dime a dozen – slowly, yet intently creeping onto any gaming system that they wish to infect. Ever since their resurgence into popular culture back in the early-to-mid '00s, we've been treated to sluggish, plodding zombies, bile-bloated ghouls, multi-...

  • Dead Nation: Road of Devastation Review

    Dead Nation: Road of Devastation is the downloadable add-on to Housemarque's 2010 isometric zombie-survival twin-stick shooter. Played in either single-player, or couch/online co-op, Dead Nation focuses on upgrading your character's guns and armor, racking up score with point multipliers – thi...

  • Dead or Alive 5 Review

    After the departure of Dead or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki from Team Ninja in 2008, many were concerned about the future of the series. For fans, Itagaki was DOA. A lot of the designer’s personality had been injected into the games and Itagaki has called DOA’s female characters his &l...

  • Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Review: A great place to start for series newcomers

    The series that saved Tecmo from closing its doors is back with the latest installment's ultimate edition.

  • Dead Rising 2 Review

    From the arcade smash hit House Of The Dead to the quintessential gaming experience of the Resident Evil series, zombies have successfully embraced the video game world over the years and provided us with a level of violence that has become the norm. After all zombies aren't real, are they? Now,...

  • Dead Space 2 Review

    Necromorphs are among the most hideous and terrifying creatures to have ever graced a third-person shooter. In the click of a finger, these mutated corpses will bury their sharp claws right through your skull and tear your head clean off before ripping you apart limb from limb. Relentless in their p...

  • Dead Space 3 Review

    Games in the survival horror genre have found difficulty in capturing enough interest from gamers to achieve great commercial success this generation. For this reason, this console cycle did not see many new games or franchises in the genre. Titles in existing survival horror franchises began to cha...

  • Dead Space Review

    There used to be a time when the survival horror meant solely Silent Hill and Resident Evil. Lately, there are more original properties, like the mind-boggling BioShock or the gruesome Condemned, sprouting up within the genre. Now EA has pushed itself into view with EA Redwood Shores’ inaugura...

  • Dead to Rights: Retribution Review

    A full eight years since the release of the original Dead To Rights, and the franchise is unleashed for the first time on current gen consoles. Though the original promised much, in reality it was certainly nothing to write home about. If you did happen to play that 2002 release, however, you ma...

  • Deadpool Review: superhero romp takes a sledgehammer to the fourth wall in style

    High Moon Studios, the developer behind the recent batch of Transformer titles, has taken the Deadpool license to create one of the funniest hack-'n-slash game of the year.

  • DeathSpank Review

    In this notoriously slow period in the video games calendar we’ve turned to the PlayStation Network this week in our quest for gaming kicks, and boy are we glad we did. From Monkey Island designer Ron Gilbert, DeathSpank arrives on PSN on a wave of positive previews, and despite costing ju...
