Dishonored

Dishonored Review

Dishonored came out of nowhere to become the surprise hit of 2012. As a new IP developed by the relatively unknown studio, Dishonored's chances of scoring big with both critics and gamers seemed low. However, through a combination of inventive gameplay mechanics, and a very original setting, the game has managed to prove that innovation is still alive and thriving in big-budget game development.

The Binding of Isaac

The Binding of Isaac Review

The Binding of Isaac is a 2D indie game, and is, without much of a doubt, near the top of its respective market. The game is based on the biblical story of the same name, in which a little boy called Isaac flees into his basement after having been imprisoned in his room and is now in danger of being murdered by his deranged mother, who believes that these actions must be undertook after, apparently, she was contacted by God ordering her to do so because of his sins. Whilst down in the basement, Isaac faces intense enemies and the continued wrath of his mother!

Max Payne 3

Max Payne 3 Review

Max Payne 3 marks the third entry in the gritty action series, and the first to be developed by Rockstar Games. The previous iterations were created by Finnish studio Remedy Entertainment, who then sold the rights to the series in 2002 to Take-Two. Now, a decade later, Max makes his debut on current-gen platforms; how has the grizzled old cop handled the move?

All Stars Battle Royale

All Stars Battle Royale Review

Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series is one that needs no introduction. If you and your friends have ever wanted to take those household names from Nintendo’s beloved franchises and have them throw down (If? Ha!), then that was the series you went to.

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Review

Call of Duty has become a yearly phenomenon, breaking record after record on an annual basis. Black Ops 2, the latest in the series, is no exception, bringing together an action packed single player story and a set of chaotic, fast paced multiplayer games to create what is arguably one of the best arcade shooters of this generation. The addition of Treyarch's popular Zombies mode is only that stretch extra. Call of Duty may have its fair share of detractors, but it remains one of the most popular games in the world, and deservedly so.

Zone of the Enders HD Review

If you’d heard of Zone of the Enders at its original release, there's an overwhelming possibility the only reason you planned to buy it was because of the Metal Gear Solid 2 demo that came with it. Flash forward ten years and the robot franchise has all but disappeared, but with a sequel confirmed and this HD Collection available in stores, Konami hope to re-establish a cult classic. If you can ignore the layer of technical dust that comes with any re-release, Zone of the Enders remains a game worth playing, even if it’s just a chance to see Kojima operate ...

DMC: Devil May Cry Review

Perhaps Capcom and Ninja Theory started off on the wrong foot when it came to DmC: Devil May Cry. From its initial announcement, people have been offended - literally offended, as if their four year old had been forced into sex ed. Why the controversy? Because this reboot would disregard everything that made the original Devil May Cry games so important to millions of people and would try to rebuild from the ground up. Perhaps it might not be too bad, but more likely it would end up a mess of everything that had come before it, parts missing and features ...

Sleeping Dogs Review

Sleeping Dogs was originally going to be the third title in Activision's True Crime series, a franchise that famously put the Grand Theft Auto formula on its head and put the player in the role of a police officer at a time when open world action driving games were two a penny. Although the original, Streets of LA, was very popular at the time, a lacklustre sequel – New York City - and the high cost of making a Hong Kong-based title caused Activision to cancel in 2011. Square Enix later picked up the game, changed the name and took the risk that Activision didn't.

Resident Evil 6 Review

Perhaps one of the most controversial games of the last twelve months, Resident Evil 6 split fans and critics right down the middle. While some celebrated the mass return of many of their favourite characters, others were less impressed by an overemphasis on action sequences and linear...
