metalgearrisingf

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance sees you stepping into the high-heeled boots of cyborg ninja Raiden as he slices and dices his way through enemies with a focus on action over stealth. Revengeance is the ninth main game in the Metal Gear series, but does it reach the critically acclaimed lofty heights of its predecessors? Simply put – no, it does not.

Review – Tomb Raider

tombraiderbanner1

2013 will be marked as the year that famed heroine Lara Croft made her remarkable return to the gaming industry. Despite some truly engaging innovation and an origin story that promises an emotional connection to the title that supports its various gameplay mechanics, the true question is: is this the Tomb Raider that fans have been waiting for, or is this a DMC: Devil May Cry type of reboot that caters more to the new fans rather than the traditionalists? By the end of this article, you should have your answer!

Dust off your canes, your sleep darts, and your vans ladies and gentlemen, The Cooper gang is back in town. When we last saw our friends, they’d just unlocked the Cooper Vault by defeating the evil Dr. M and going down the lineage of the Cooper family, using their storied and useful thieving techniques with Sly to witness his family’s history and understand the infamy that comes with the Cooper name. Well, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, takes that to an entirely new level.

It’s Necromorphs, Necromorphs everywhere, with Dead Space 3 marking the third game where dismembering limbs is the song to saving your skin. But with three games in, is the tune a little too overplayed? Have Dead Space’s scary monsters lost their fear factor? The answer to these questions is a resounding HELL NO.

Available to buy through Madman Entertainment, Paragon Lost is a collaborative effort by Bioware and Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell, Kill Bill: Vol 1).

Review – Devil May Cry

dmc11

Ninja Theory’s new Devil May Cry sure is one hell of a ride. It immediately throws you into a demonic version of reality, which is a decaying and interactively evolving version of Earth, called Limbo. The new Dante can be ‘pulled’ into Limbo seemingly at will by the demons who inhabit it, and the world dramatically changes around him. The first level of the game takes place on the Santa Monica Pier (or something very similar) and it quickly evolves into a red, hyper-aesthetic and uncontrollably exciting nightmare.

Dead or Alive 5 Review – How do you weaponise a ninja?

doa5title1

Straight up; I’m no expert on fighting games, having only played them casually Back in the Day. Additionally, my only contact with the Dead or Alive series was the movie, which I’m convinced is a parody of video game movies more than anything else.

Far Cry 3 Review

farcry3title3

Far Cry 3 is a deep, violent and drug-fuelled venture into a lush, tropical island with an unforgiving and dominant underworld. Aside from Rook Island’s dark pretences, you play how you want to play, do exactly what you want to do and as a result your experience will be entirely unique. You can fight your way through the main quest armed with the weapon of your choosing, or maybe explore ancient ruins, dive into mysterious caves, tackle bullsharks or walk among locals. Rook Island is yours – well, aside from the pirates, madmen and an inescapable principle of violence.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Review: Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

assassinscreedtitle1

It’s here, the long awaited third numbered game in the franchise, which sees a new assassin finally arriving after three Ezio games. Do we finally get our answers to the burning question of the past 4 games?  Did the newest assassin measure up to the lineage of Ezio and Altair? Did Desmond’s story come to a fitting conclusion?  Yes… and no.  It’s a bit of a mixed bag sadly, when there was so much potential.
