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 […]

Destiny

destiny-review-score

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 09/09/2014 To say that Destiny was riding on the wings of high expectations would be an understatement. Afterall, it’s the big new brand from the creators of Halo that’s being published by Acitivision, who is best known for the Call of Duty […]

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 […]

TWD-S02E04-REVIEW-SCORE

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 22/07/2014 The Walking Dead is a rare creature in that it so surreptitiously crawls under your skin, for which you will only notice once your salty tears are stinging the wound it left behind while killing cherished characters. I’ve never felt emotions […]

review-score_guacamelee-STCE

Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 02/07/2014 When Guacamelee! launched on PS3 and PS Vita last year, I had a really great time playing it. As one of my favourite games of 2013, as well as one of the best games on the Vita to this day, this […]
