Life is Strange review

Life Is Strange Review – Can I Get A Rewind?

February 11, 2015 | by Joe Martin

There’s been a lot of debate about realism in games over the last few years. Some want more of it, while others argue that the quest for gritty realism has taken some of the fun out of gaming. Getting the recoil physics right on the guns in an FPS title will always be more realistic than zooming around as a blue hedgehog hoovering up jewellery…

Resident Evil HD Remaster Review – Lest We Forget

February 2, 2015 | by Joe Martin

Remasters are a funny thing. They rely on nostalgia for the original game, feeding off that sense of wonder we felt when experiencing it the first time around. Some manage this successfully, upgrading everything that made the original great and ironing out any lingering flaws, while others attempt a half-arsed rehash that at best looks only nominally better…

Far Cry 4 Review – It’s An Animal

January 6, 2015 | by Adam Vjestica

I’ve died a lot in video games. I’ve been gnawed on by a zombie, shot dead by a Nazi, fallen into the abyss, and succumbed to the skill of another human opponent on countless occasions. But I’ve never been involved in a bone shattering, high speed traffic accident with a rhino…

Alien: Isolation Review – Running Scared

November 27, 2014 | by Joe Martin

If you only take one thing from this review let it be this – the Alien is a bastard. You’ll shout, you’ll cry, you’ll invent all-new profanities just to belt at the screen as the scaly-skinned nightmare drops from a ceiling vent and chews your face off just as you get near a save point…

The Evil Within review

The Evil Within Review – Sick Thrills

November 21, 2014 | by Joe Martin

The Evil Within is the game the Resident Evil series should be. It’s a bold claim but one that I’m prepared to make. It’s not the future of survival horror and it doesn’t make any giant strides that advance what’s come before, but it’s been helmed by Shinji Mikami…

Destiny review

Destiny Review – It’s No Fun To Go Alone

October 28, 2014 | by Joe Martin

One of the most important things in life is finding out who we are. It shapes our identity, helps decide our path in life and strengthens every aspect of our being. Destiny hasn’t quite discovered what it is yet; and without wanting to sound like an overbearing parent, it’s a little disappointing…
