Review: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

If the original Ruby and Sapphire games were normal old Pokémon, this month’s Alpha and Omega remakes would be their mega evolved counterparts. That’s what a mega evolution is: a way to bring an old Pokémon from the early days of the series into

Review: Magic 2015’s “Garruk’s Revenge” DLC

Magic 2015‘s “Garruk’s Revenge” DLC barely has enough content to warrant a full review, but it changes the base game enough that players who have given up on the 2015 edition of Duels of the Planeswalkers should take another look.

Review: WWE 2K15

WWE 2K15 has finally jumped off the turnbuckle onto current-gen consoles, and I’m frankly unimpressed. We’ve had a year of current-gen sports offerings now, and in some franchises even two shiny examples of what improved technology can bring. FIFA‘s always

Review: LittleBigPlanet 3

Booting up LittleBigPlanet 3 and hearing the dulcet tones of Stephen Fry is like coming home on a rainy day and snuggling into a big thick blanket with a cup of hot chocolate. His treacle-thick voice envelopes you and is

Review: Shape Up

Kinect games have always been hit (Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved) and miss(Star Wars Kinect, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, Kinect Party…). Okay, far more miss than hit; with the exception of dance and fitness titles, Kinect’s pretty much just a voice

Review: LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham’s cardinal sin (aside from being identical to every LEGO game before it) is that is tries to do too much and in doing so really fails to do any one thing really well. It’s also

Review: Never Alone

I absolutely adored Ubisoft’s Valiant Hearts: The Great War earlier in the year. A cute, indie-like puzzle game, it merged great gameplay with emotion and education; those who picked up a controller were immersed in the horror and pain that

Review: SingStar: Ultimate Party

I never thought I’d say that a last-generation version of a game is better than its current-generation counterpart. Yet here we are, SingStar: Ultimate Party. I’m sure you’re familiar with the SingStar franchise, but if you’re not, it’s the PlayStation’s

Review: Assasin’s Creed: Rogue

The end of the year has arrived, so it’s time for another Assassin’s Creed on PS3 and Xbox 360 – but with a twist. Unlike last year’s Black Flag, which released across last- and current-gen platforms, 2014 gives us two distinct

Review: Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 is Far Cry 3 with the added benefit of monkeys, elephants and the occasional bout of snow. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. We rated Far Cry 3 quite highly back when we first reviewed it; a departure from Far Cry

Review: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

I remember a few years back at E3 when everyone was talking about this game called Destiny that was being presented behind closed doors. We had seen it in action but still didn’t really know what it was – I

Review: Pro Evolution Soccer 2015

Popping Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 in to my Xbox One, I was immediately reminded of 2K’s NHL 2K series. Why? PES 2015‘s menu structure is beyond ugly. It’s simplistically ugly. The comparisons stop there. While NHL 2K — and hey, before you start complaining,
