Far Cry 3 Review

The Far Cry series began life with the Crytek-developed PC title, Far Cry. Positively received on release, the original game cast the mold for the sandbox-shooter franchise and though development since that first game has been handled by Ubisoft Montreal, the second instalment received similar praise. Now, Far Cry 3 has arrived with the aim of continuing the series’ success, and fans will be pleased to hear that it doesn’t disappoint.

Skyrim

Skyrim Review

Any fantasy-RPG fan knows that if you’re looking for a broad, open-world experience with unprecedented attention to detail and more lore than you can shake an enchanted mace at, then you should look no further than the Elder Scrolls series. The fantasy realm of Tamriel is home to multiple races, factions, guilds, ghosts, and monsters. In The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, players are brought to the titular province to explore the northern wilds, mountains, caves, catacombs, and ruins of Skyrim, the land of the Nords. Bethesda’s latest entry into their long-running ...

Journey Review

Uber-small developer, thatgamecompany previously wowed gamers with Flower. The game was stripped down and simple, but also oddly beautiful. Furthermore, it proved insanely addicting with its "snowball effect on flower petals" mechanic. Flower is a perfect argument for the oft-asked and much- debated question, “Are games art?” And now the studio has upped its game (so to speak) with Journey a compelling and emotional title that is subtly deep and outrageously beautiful…it is a triumph.

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?

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.

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 ...

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.
