  • Ace Combat Infinity Review: ruling the skies

    It takes a special kind of mentality to want to travel at mach speed, risking death at every turn like a new-age, technological form of dueling. It also takes a special kind of creative team to put the intensity and adrenaline of being a fighter pilot into a game for the home console. Bandai Namco h...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Aliens: Colonial Marines Review

    A franchise that requires an introduction must not be that great of a franchise, and the same can be said for a franchise that’s falling out of grace. Movie-based games almost never impress, but it’s hard to believe that a coupling between a prestigious developer like Gearbox Software an...

  • All Zombies Must Die Review

    With a blunt title like All Zombies Must Die, it's hard to imagine that a game could be about anything else. In a sea of games devoted to the zombie motif, however, a title such as this may not be quite so welcome. In order to stand out against games like Dead Island and Dead Nation, an IP has to ha...

  • Alpha Protocol Review

    Last September we compiled a list of our most anticipated games for the remainder of that year. Coming in at 8 was Obsidian Entertainment’s espionage-RPG game, Alpha Protocol, which to our dismay was put on SEGA’s backburner for about six months. It’s unclear if the delay was stric...

  • Angry Birds Review

    Angry Birds has become something of a phenomenon in the rapidly-growing world of smartphone gaming. After swiftly rising to the top of Apple’s app chart in 20 different countries, official reports now reveal that over 50 million people worldwide have played the physics-based puzzler. That ...

  • Angry Birds Star Wars Review: what happens when two much-loved franchises clash?

    We presume you’ve played Angry Birds before? If not, check out the review of the original Angry Birds port which launched on PSN in 2011 for an understanding of the basic mechanics. Dressing a cartoon pig up as a storm trooper and putting a lightsaber in between its trotters while blasting ...

  • Anomaly: Warzone Earth Review

    Anomaly : Warzone Earth, previously available on PC, has made its way onto the PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Store; and what a treat it is. 11 bit studios has done itself proud by taking the well-established tower defense genre and flipping it on its head by mixing things up by putting the playe...

  • Arcania: The Complete Tale review - humdrum adventures in mediocre land

    The other night I had a terrible nightmare. I dreamt I was in Hell where I was forced to undertake the same hideously boring task over and over again with no end to my torment in sight. Then I woke up and realised that I had fallen asleep playing Arcania: The Complete Tale; a game that makes it very...

  • Armageddon Riders Review

    Have you ever wondered what you would get if you combined mindless zombies, high speed car racing and a post-disaster city with no sense of law or an established authority? The answer would be Armageddon Riders, the latest attempt at a Carmageddon-esque racer from Russian developer Targem Games....

  • Armored Core 4 Review

    Armored Core 4, the first next-gen entry in From Software's prolific mech combat series, was expected to be a major advancement. Not only is it a disappointment next to its action kin, but an unfortunate step back for the franchise. For those who aren't familiar with Armored Core, know that it stand...

  • Armored Core: For Answer Review

    After a few stagnant releases, the Armored Core series seemed to be on the track to irrelevancy. With Armored Core: For Answer, however, developer From Software has managed to bring forth an entertaining mech-filled romp for the PlayStation 3. With gigantic robots at your fingertips, expect some ...

  • Army Corps of Hell Review

    When I first saw footage of Army Corps of Hell for the Playstation Vita, I immediately caught a feeling of an Overlord influence. Truth be told, that was a good vibe to have, but a game that lives under the influence of another doesn't have much of a future in the gaming industry. A new IP needs fla...

  • Army of Two Review

    Could you imagine a world where privatized military personnel are the norm and countries no longer have national armies? Army of Two willingly takes you into that world and shows you the harsh reality of what it could potentially cause. It also showcases at what lengths some individuals may go to in...

  • Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Review - "a bad case of sequelitis"

    Electronic Arts has supported some original titles this generation, such as Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space, and Army of Two. These three games were great examples of new ideas, but only two of them received any form of sequel. Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, being the third installment in th...

  • Ashes Cricket 2009 Review

    It was the Australian former cricketer, Richie Benaud, who once famously said that “Cricket is a batsman's game,” a quote that perfectly sums up our experience of Codemaster’s latest foray into the popular, quintessential English summer sport. Cricket is a sport that is known for i...

  • Asphalt 6: Adrenaline - Xperia PLAY

    Videogames have never been so accessible to the masses. Though Xperia PLAY is first and foremost a smartphone for making calls, surfing the net, and organising your social life, there’s always that overwhelming urge to slide-out the gamepad and have a blast on one of the many titles you ca...

  • Asphalt: Injection Review

    The word "Asphalt" in a video game can only imply two scenarios: racing and construction. Since the latter would probably be filled with lines of cones and frequent lunch breaks, this can only leave Asphalt: Injection as a racing game. Seriously though, this is a Gameloft title on the Play...

  • Assassin's Creed 2 Review

    An assassin’s job is to eliminate a target with cunning stealth, blend in with a crowd, and when necessary use brute force to accomplish his objective. They live in the underbelly of society, but appear as an everyman, only to pounce on helpless prey with lightening fast attacks. This was the ...

  • Assassin's Creed III Review

    The latest installment in the Assassin's Creed series sums up the highs and lows of the franchise as a whole. It is a wildly fun action-adventure game set in a beautiful and lively open world full of side quests, historic characters, cities where buildings serve as jungle gyms, beastly targets t...

  • Assassin's Creed III: Liberation Review

    Ubisoft won the hearts of many at E3 when it showcased Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, and even won some awards in the process, but consumers are another matter entirely. The Assassin's Creed series has an immensely loyal following that demands games to be better as they grow and diversify. Ubisof...

  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag PS4 Review: the definitive Assassin's Creed experience

    I waxed lyrical on Ubisoft’s pirate-themed adventure in my PlayStation 3 review of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and for good reason. Combining the very best of the historical action-adventure series’ brutal, stealth-oriented components and giving players a massive, Caribbean op...

  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Review: set sail for the greatest Assassin's Creed adventure in years

    Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III was a mammoth undertaking that sadly fell victim to its own ambitions. Sprawling but bloated, Connor Kenway’s American Revolution adventure was a divisive sequel that introduced stunning naval warfare to the series, though its protagonist and repetiti...

  • Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Review

    Caught in a moment of passion with an attractive young lady, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's time-traveling hero, Ezio, is rudely interrupted by the sound of gunfire. News reaches him quick that the papal army are descending on Moneteriggioni in their thousands, hell bent on destroying the familiar ...
