Review: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

Going into the review of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle completely blind and unfamiliar with the subject matter was truly an experience.

Review: The LEGO Movie Videogame

WARNING: If you have been a good little human and have not been tempted to illegally download The LEGO Movie, you may want to watch it before playing this game, or even before you read this review.

Review: Might & Magic X Legacy

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but in the case of Might & Magic X Legacy, maybe it’s time to teach the young dogs of today some ‘older’ tricks. This classic first-person style RPG from Ubisoft will take even the most nostalgic of gamers back to their younger days. Lending on storylines and lore from the Might & Magic universe, the game expands on the well-established Might & Magic world and adds to an untold storyline arc, but retains races and creatures familiar to fans.

Review: Soul Calibur II HD Online

Last year, we began to see many games from previous consoles re-released in High Definition, sometimes even with one or two hits from the same franchise on the one disc. Right at the same time as two next-gen consoles were released to the public, Namco Bandai brought Soul Calibur II back with an HD makeover, available only online.

Preview: World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition

If anything was prominent at PAX Australia, it was World of Tanks. Their two story display, parked in the middle of the exhibition hall could not be missed. Not to mention their product was plastered across the ‘swag bag’ handed to attendees upon entry. I gave the game a quick look from the sidelines and what I saw looked good. Being more of a console gamer than a PC gamer, I chose not to take a seat in front of a monitor and keyboard, as the lines were always quite lengthy anytime I strode past the display, proving its popularity. I was quite surprised when I was offered the World of Tanks Xbox 360 beta and seeing the game make a transition to console, but very interested all the same. If you are yet to experience World of Tanks, in any format, just imagine a third-person shooter style game... involving tanks.

Review: WWE 2K14

Editor's note: We've -- very luckily -- inherited a WWE review tradition that started over on the now-defunct AustralianGamer. Just as WWE moved from THQ to 2K, so too has Cav's photo-based review. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have internally.

Review: Sonic: Lost World

There’s no doubt about it. Sonic the Hedgehog is the Corey Feldman of gaming. Everyone loves his work from years ago, but now we cower in fear of what he presents us today, most of which comes direct to DVD anyway. It’s truly sad.
