Review – Rayman Legends

9.5 out of 10 Excellent

In 2011 Rayman was reinvented, throwing him and all of his buddies into a 2D platformer. Rayman Origins was a delight to gamers then and now Rayman Legends has taken all the goodness of the previous game and revitalised it, adding stronger level design and stunning visuals, to create a game that’s simple, pure fun.

inFAMOUS: Second Son – Review

9 out of 10 Excellent

Greatness awaits – that was the tag line used with the launch of the PS4. Unfortunately, with the scarce release of PS4 exclusives, gamers have had nothing to feel all that great about. Until now. The release of inFAMOUS: Second Sun from Sucker Punch finally brings that feeling of greatness to the player, putting you in control of some awesome powers and giving you free rein to use them as you see fit as you traverse the wonderfully recreated Seattle. Our ‘hero’ of the game is Delsin Rowe, a delinquent whose biggest claim to fame prior to gaining powers is […]

Review: Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea – Episode 2

7 out of 10 Good

When Bioshock Infinite launched a little over a year ago, it was met with near universal acclaim.  It was hailed as an instant classic, and one of the best games of this past generation.  So expectations for Burial at Sea, its mysterious expansion DLC, were high.  While the first episode was entertaining enough, it was far from what fans were expecting.  So will Episode Two be equally underwhelming, or will it capture some of the magic that made Bioshock Infinite so memorable?  Read on to find out.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

8.5 out of 10 Great

Sometimes a game doesn’t bring anything exceptionally new to the table, but is still an enjoyable experience. This is definitely true of Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2. It combines a Metroidvania structure with God Of War-esque combat and ties it all together with an absolutely gorgeous game world, and an interesting character journey. It may not push any boundaries, but it’s definitely a game worth playing.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 – Smoke & Mirrors Review

The absurd concept of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us makes it a hard sell.  After all, the desire to follow a noire thriller starring The Big Bad Wolf as he tracks down a serial killer in a town full of fairy tale characters requires a cross section of a lot of niche interests.  Despite the odd mix of materials, Telltale manages to stitch up a quality tale in the first episode, and for the most part, the company does it again in episode 2, although the seams are starting to look a little frayed.

It’s not very often that I find a mobile game that engages me for a long period of time and inspires me to play it again once I’m finished, but I just found that with the game Home.

Review – State of Decay – Breakdown DLC

8 out of 10 Great

When State of Decay released a few months ago on Xbox Live (and more recently on PC) it offered a unique and challenging Zombie survival experience whose game mechanics set it apart from other zombie games. With the release of Breakdown, the game’s first DLC, State of Decay finally delivers the sandbox centred endless survival mode, an oft requested addition by fans of the game. But is the inclusion of this element enough to warrant a purchase? The answer, ultimately, will depend on how much of a fan you were of the base game itself.

Beyond: Two Souls – Review

9 out of 10 Excellent Recommended

From the first E3 trailer I saw of Beyond: Two Souls I could not wait to have it in my hands and figure out just what was going on. It is an amazing to see developer Quantic Dream take concepts from earlier games Indigo Prophecy (aka Fahrenheit) and Heavy Rain and hone them into something fresh and unique. It is clear that Quantic Dream looked at what didn’t work in Heavy Rain and either fixed or avoided them all together.
