And Walking Down the Aisle…WWE13

WWE 13_Screenshots_01

Let’s be honest, you are either a wrestling fan or you aren’t. So let’s just say that this game is almost exclusively meant and designed for wrestling fans. So if you aren’t, this review probably wouldn’t mean much to you period. But for you wrestling fans, I know many of you are disenfranchised with the television product right now.  Hear me out. WWE13 provides that experience that many of us have been left wanting for some years. That feeling of old when the magic of wrestling is oozing from the ring is here and it’s here in so many ways.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted iOS Review

nfsmwios

It’s a rare game that manages to combine excellent gameplay with an outstanding sountrack, eye-watering graphics and solidly implemented social features to create an addictive experience you keep wanting to return to. It’s even rarer when this game manages to achieve all those things on a mobile platform. Need for Speed: Most Wanted on iOS by Firemonkeys does just that, and it does it in style.

The Empress’ Outlaw – Dishonored Review

dishonored1

The First Person Sneaker is one of those polarising sub-genres; you either love it or you hate it. Some people don’t have the time for it either due to lack of patience, skill or interest. Others lap it up.

lovesac4

It’s the ultimate gamers dilemma – It’s the time of the year where triple A titles are hitting the shelves one after the other.

Review – PES 2013

pes2013

We’ve decided to tackle our review of PES 2013 in a different way to usual – this review is a two-in-one. We’ve asked two people with very different past experiences with soccer games to provide their thoughts. Sacha is a soccer fan and enjoys playing soccer games, whilst Tash is a complete newbie when it comes to all things soccer. By asking both to share their thoughts, we’re hoping to canvas two very different outlooks – a review from someone familiar with soccer and soccer games, and a review from a total beginner. Is PES 2013 able to appeal to […]

FTL: Faster Than Light

ftltitle

Under my watch countless brave men, women, bug-people, rockoids and robots have been sent to their doom in defence of the Federation. Each starship crew valiantly stared down death, and all subsequently were jettisoned into the cold dark void of space. Why crews continue to sign up to my ill-fated squadron I’ll never know. Of course, my disastrous space-military career is based in the imaginary Federation of FTL: Faster Than Light, an indie rougelike-like space sim created by Subset Games and funded by a Kickstarter campaign.

Review: Retro City Rampage

retrocityr

Retro City Rampage began as Brian Provinciano’s remake of Grand Theft Auto 3 for the NES, and much like the GTA games, you start off doing one thing, then get distracted which results in having more fun playing around than you would have if you just finished the mission. I’m glad this game exists. So many games rely on some pixel art and a couple of “A winner is you” references and think that it accurately captures what the 80’s pop culture/video game scene was like. Retro City Rampage finally gets it right.

The Testament of Sherlock Holmes

sherlock

I’m a detective!  Or at least that’s the sentiment I have when I’m playing The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. I only found out about it a few days before release, and decided to take a gander and see what Frogwares had developed. I realized my purchase was the right one when the game reminded me to save, and when during the loading screen I received a historical tidbit. I am almost finished the game and I can still say that this purchase is definitely worthwhile.

Rock Band Blitz Review

rockbandblitz

The plastic instrument revolution has come and gone. The days and nights of strumming, drumming and singing off-key are no more. While Guitar Hero faded away in sequel after sequel, Rock Band took this opportunity to evolve. Rock Band Blitz manages to radically change the way we play, but still have the player feel like they are playing the music.
