    Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a remastering of the classic Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee from the original PlayStation era, released back in 1997 and created by the team at Oddworld Inhabitants. Developed by the talent chaps at Just Add Water (JAW), the remake has been a long time coming, a...

  • The Walking Dead Season Two - Episode 4: 'Amid The Ruins' Review

    The penultimate episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two gets back toward the long-lost Telltale tradition of exploration and puzzle-solving. Neither is here in any great supply, with the former constrained in fairly small areas and the latter boiled down to merely trying a few things until something...

  • Rogue Legacy Review: A towering achievement

    We’re so often painfully reminded in games with roguelike qualities that death is the end. It’s invariably engrained in our psyche that all of our hard work, all that gold, all that loot and all that progression can be flushed down the toilet on account of an errant controller press. Rog...

  • Crimsonland PS4 Review: blood baths and bullet storms galore

    If you’ve ever woken up with a desire to violently slaughter your fears and bathe in the blood-soaked entrails of mutant-alien spiders, undead hordes, and lizard people – the very kind you wish to banish from your mental existence – then perhaps Crimsonland is for you. After bootin...

  • Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Review

    On the face of it, a game about transformable robots waging an intergalactic war with Earth caught in the middle of it all should be a marvellous thing. Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark however, sadly stands as a spectacular squandering of both the license it's based on and the considerable powe...

  • MouseCraft Review: charming gameplay with a catch

    The puzzle gaming genre is not one that seems to have made huge waves in the console space. One of the most recent attempts at garnering attention for the underrepresented genre is MouseCraft. In MouseCraft, you are charged with the task of helping Schrodinger, an eccentric, scientific cat, with ...

  • Ratchet & Clank Collection PS Vita Review

    The dynamic duo Ratchet and Clank made their debut back on the PlayStation 2 in 2002. This was a time when the platform genre was beginning to go into decline after dominating much of the 90’s. Ratchet & Clank combined classic platforming with elements from other genres but with a unique t...

  • The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 - 'Cry Wolf' Review

    The ride to the end of Telltale Games' compelling adaptation of Fables does justice to the series' high caliber of storytelling. It's a credit to the entire five-episode arc's treatment of player choice that a great deal of your emotionally charged decisions come back to alter the conversations and...

  • Atelier Rorona Plus Review

    The cycle is finally complete, as Koei Tecmo releases its latest Plus version in its long-running Atelier series.

  • Battle Princess of Arcadias Review

    NIS is one company that is not afraid to be creative in an industry that is steeped with reusing the same formula ad-nausium, on both sides of the planet. Every fresh title from them is the definition of new as the development team attempts to create or breathe new life into a particular game mechan...

  • Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition PS4 Review

    It’s an increasingly common trend that some of the best games from 2013 are launching on PlayStation 4 in 2014. Two high profile examples are The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto 5, and now there’s another great game you should add to that list if you haven’t already, Guacamelee! Su...

  • Tour De France 2014 PS4 review

    If you thought competing in Le Tour De France, the world’s most famous cycling race, was just about looking good in lycra, peddling as fast as you can, and soaking up the beautiful European scenery, you’d be totally wrong. Competitive cycling is a tactical sport and Focus Home Interactiv...

  • Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn review

    If there is one thing that Tecmo Koei has taught us with its Dynasty Warrior series is that it is not afraid to shove in more characters than humanly possible. It makes perfect sense as it was originally based off a novel with over 500 characters. So when tasked to take on the Gundam universe and gi...

  • Valiant Hearts: The Great War review: a powerful story told through the horrors of war

    War is not pretty. It’s full of death, sadness, emotion, and it corrupts the most noble and sincere of men. Valiant Hearts: The Great War depicts the horrors of war not by putting a gun in your hand but through an emotional story and an artistic style that highlights the gritty darkness that o...

  • That Trivia Game PS4 review - fun for all the family

    There’s something to be said for the evergreen appeal of trivia games. Chiefly, their charm has always endured in how they can be played by folk of all ages and skill levels. That Trivia Game, by developer The Gameroom, is no different in that regard. Able to be enjoyed by both gamers and non...

  • Sniper Elite 3 PS4 Review

    Rebellion’s Sniper Elite franchise is a little trickier to quantify than your average, run-of-the-mill shoot-’em-up. While not strictly esoteric, the World War II-based blaster doesn’t pack the same universal appeal as other third-person offerings such as Gears of War or the more r...

  • Resogun Heroes Review: A winning balance of same and new

    Resogun’s Heroes DLC only adds two game modes, but each adds something meaningful to the game’s addictive arcade action. Even better, both modes cater especially well to a different kind of player. The first, Survival, throws down the gauntlet for veteran players seasoned by leaderboard...

  • MotoGP 14 Review: PS4 gets a racing pacesetter

    On PS4 currently, there isn’t much to enjoy in the racing genre past Need for Speed Rivals. MotoGP 14 helps fill that void with authenticity and an impressive amount of things to do. MotoGP 14 comes from the Italian studio Milestone, who developed last year’s entry, as well as the first ...

  • Killzone: Shadow Fall Intercept Review: Fresh co-op ideas for a fun diversion

    Killzone: Shadow Fall’s Intercept expansion succeeds as a co-op experience worth your time in spite of a somewhat shallow pool of content and ideas. What’s here impresses, as Guerrilla’s take on the all-too-familiar wave concept is made novel by rules and systems that penalize fail...

  • Drakengard 3 Review - awkward and confusing hack 'n slash action

    Square Enix, the studio behind legendary franchises Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts, is renowned for games that deliver great storytelling and gorgeous graphics. It’s a wonder, then, that one of the biggest and most capable Japanese gaming studios in existence could have put its name as publi...

  • Ultra Street Fighter IV Review: the definitive version of Capcom's seminal beat-'em-up

  • Entwined PS4 Review: a once-in-a-lifetime philosophy

    Entwined is a journey that literally goes nowhere but figuratively encompasses a lifetime.
