cities-skylines-review-score

Developer: Colossal Order Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 10/03/2015 Growing up as a Warhammer obsessed teen, dreaming up cities with pristine infrastructure wasn’t my top priority.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

Hotline-Miami-Review-Score-7.0

Developer: Devolver Digital Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 10/03/2015 Hotline Miami is one of my favourite games of all time. In fact, it’s the only modern game that I sometimes go back to replay on occasion. From its surreal world and hyper-violent mechanics to the adrenaline-inducing design […]

Developer: Capcom Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 17/03/2015 Just to provide a little background, Resident Evil: Revelations was the first RE game that I ever reviewed; as well as serving as my re-introduction to the franchise after a long hiatus.

DmC_review-score

Developer: Ninja Theory Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One Release: 10/03/2015 I was surprised by how awesome DmC: Devil May Cry was back in 2013. Having gone in with low expectations, I was absolutely blown away. Now, two years and one generation on, DmC Devil May Cry: […]

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires

dynasty-warriors-8-empires_review-score

Developer: Koei Tecmo Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 29/02/2015 It could be argued that Dynasty Warriors has to perform one of the hardest balancing acts of any on-going gaming franchises today. Basically, each game has to keep the same fundamental gameplay mechanics in play while still shaking up […]

Developer: Creative Assembly Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 17/02/2015 Screw The Huns, man. Here I am, the innocent and peaceful leader of The Saxons, quietly chipping a bloody path to the west, when out of freakin’ nowhere hordes of Huns start razing everything around me! What […]

Dragon Ball Xenoverse

dbz-xenoverse_review-score

Developer: Dimps Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 26/02/2015 Dragon Ball Xenoverse takes some big steps in evolving the formula of Dragon Ball video games.

doa5-last-round-review-score

Developer: Team Ninja Platform(s): PS4, XB1 & PC Release: 20/02/2015 As I’m close to thirty and “technically” an adult, life has become more demanding and my responsibilities have started to add up. Naturally, I still need my regular video game fix, but now days it often […]

Grim Fandango Remastered

grim-fandango-remastered-review-score

Developer: Double Fine Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 27/01/2015 Grim Fandango: the game I never played but always wished I had. Until now it was a relic from another era, also out of reach from digital distribution due to licencing issues with Lucasarts and unplayable (without mods) […]
