Lords of the Fallen

lords-of-the-fallen-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 30/10/2014 As someone who regularly plays a lot of different games, I’ve started to become frustrated with poor design choices that needlessly waste my time. I really don’t enjoy trivial objectives that fail to engage players in a meaningful way, or, at […]

Alien Isolation

alien-isolation_review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 07/10/2014 The influence of the ‘Alien’ film series simply cannot be overstated in the field of video games, specifically first person shooters; even to the point where a handful of guys from Shreveport, Louisiana, with their small development team known as iD […]

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

borderlands-tps-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 16/09/2014 I love the Borderlands universe: It’s crazy, intense and unrealistic, all at once – although, sometimes, it can get really real, really fast too. It’s a universe where weapons manufacturers can also run themselves as private militaries, preteens can be criminal […]

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

middleearthshadowofmordor_review_score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 08/10/2014 Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor had an early trailer that left me worried. It looked in every way like an Assassin’s Creed game, only Tolkien-themed. All things Lord of the Rings are dear to me, and I didn’t dare hope for much […]

The Evil Within

the-evil-within-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 16/10/2014 The Evil Within is a game which I’ve been looking forward to for a very long time. In fact, I even named it as my most anticipated game of 2014 in an article we published earlier this year. Survival Horror is […]

Wasteland 2

wasteland-2-review-score

Platform(s): PC, Mac & Linux Release: 19/09/2014 Welcome to the Wasteland, recruits, I hope you don’t think that Fallout prepared you for this. It didn’t prepare me. Wasteland 2 is a tactical turn-based RPG from inXile Entertainment and is the brainchild of Brian Fargo. It’s […]

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

the-vanishing-of-ethan-carter-review

Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 26/09/2014 If you’ve seen a preview for The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, I won’t judge you if you had assumed this was the next big adventure game from a large, well-known studio. It’s not, however. This is a game developed by […]

Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition

killer-is-dead_review-score

Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 23/5/2014 There’s a fine line between being cool and coming off like a try hard, a line that anyone who’s had to suffer through Metal Gear Rising knows isn’t extended by how many cutscenes proving you’re totally cool are thrown in […]

Plants vs. Zombies : Garden Warfare

pvz-garden-warfare-REVIEW-SCORE

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 21/08/2014 Plants vs. Zombies is a pretty cool idea. Turning the undead against a garden is an inherently fantastic and crazy premise to begin with, but recognizable character design and bucket loads of silly charm grew this wacky gang of weeds into […]

walking-dead-s02e05_review_score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 26/08/2014 With another episode down and its second season all wrapped up, The Walking Dead’s final few moments were tense to say the least. “No Going Back,” indeed; the ending of the series had so many parallels with its beginning that it […]
