Review: Bayonetta 2

I am a huge Bayonetta fan. I love its style, I love its humor and I adore its combat. Platinum Games’ original Bayonetta was one of my favorite games of last-gen and easily best of its genre. While this may mark me a

Review: Flockers

It’s cold and dark in this box. Fortunately Terence the sheep doesn’t stay inside long and is promptly whisked away, destined for greener pastures. The down side? The promised land is located past a plethora of traps, spikes, death, buzz

Preview: Gauntlet

The new Gauntlet needs views… badly. Original Gauntlet fans are probably shaking their heads in disgust at that bad pun, but you know what? That’s ok. Words aren’t for everyone; that’s why Mark Ankucic recorded a preview video to demonstrate

Review: The Swapper

Few games are able to capture my attention the way The Swapper does. Its concepts are simple yet easy to pick up and its narrative, coupled with stable difficulty scaling, make for an engaging and addictive experience. Initially a PC exclusive,

Nothing is as frustrating or as compelling as a game in the Souls franchise. Its finely-balanced mix of difficulty versus reward makes for an experience like no other. As such, I was a little apprehensive as to how new DLC

Brace yourself for an extremely short review as, despite being ported by a different team, there’s very little change in the Vita release of the Ratchet & Clank Trilogy. For those unaware, the original three Ratchet & Clank games were released

Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies is a standalone multiplayer expansion built around dynamic and varied RTS game play. With new environments, 8 new maps, 2 new armies and a retooling of the core mechanics it offers a

Released last year, Dynasty Warriors 8 was the most recent in the popular Dynasty Warriors series. Its release was promptly followed with the Xtreme Legends which offered bonus levels, characters, weapons, and so on. This review is about Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition, a Sony exclusive offering everything from the previous versions plus a little more.

Review: Luftrausers

Luftrausers is a fast paced shooter that’s easy to play and hard to put down. It’s simple design, repetitive gameplay and price will discourage many from investing in a simple “time filler” however, if it looks like your sort of game it’s well worth the investment.

On 26 February, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot entered an open beta. During the week I played it, the game underwent a few changes — most of them small — but it’s important to note that this is a

If you’d have told me a few years ago I’d be playing a third person Plants vs. Zombies shooter, I would have laughed in your face. Plants vs Zombies is already gaming perfection and didn’t need to be shoe-horned into another genre to expand or improve; or so I thought. With Garden Warfare EA’s PopCap has managed to retain the unique personality of Plants vs. Zombies whilst creating a well rounded, unique and enjoyable team shooter.

If you’ve come here hoping for a review replete with loads of changes and advancements to the next-gen version of Rayman Legends, you’d best prepare for disappointment. There’s very little to add in this new iteration, so if you’ve played it before, don’t expect anything mind-bogglingly new. That said, the new version does remove some of the quirks and niggles that marred an otherwise perfect experience. For this article I’ll focus on the version differences and refer you to Cav’s current-gen review for a more detailed look at the game itself.

Not many games captured my attention like the 2011 hit Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It promised solid gameplay coupled with diverse and versatile means of resolving situations. What really surprised me about the title, however, was that it actually delivered

Traditionally, movie-to-game titles have been lacklustre cash-ins; designed to earn quick sales riding on a movie’s success rather than relying on a game’s merits. Sadly Turbo: Super Stunt Squad is no exception to this rule and, whilst taking a different

Code of Princess is a 2D rail fighter blending versus fighter combat with beat ’em up level design in an attempt to create something new. Whilst the concept is sound and enjoyable, the game never quite realises the potential leaving

You’d be forgiven for disregarding Cloudberry Kingdom as just another flash-type platformer. It looks and sounds just like many others and, on the surface, doesn’t appear to offer anything new. To overlook it would be a mistake however as, whilst
