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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Platform(s): 3DS Exclusive Release: 04/10/2014 Well, it’s finally here: Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS (SSB4-3DS). I can’t accurately describe the way I love this series, and it isn’t hard to see why. The series has been a fixture in Nintendo’s line-up for well over […]

Hyrule Warriors

Platform(s): Wii U Exclusive Release: 20/09/2014 I feel like I need to start this review off by saying that I’m glad that “Hyrule Warriors,” isn’t preceded by “The Legend Of Zelda.” In fact, I think we’d all do well to pretend that any characters or […]

Wasteland 2

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 […]

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 […]

Murasaki Baby

murasaki-baby-review

Platform(s): VITA Exclusive Release: 17/09/2014 I’ve not actually played that many games on my PSVita, to be perfectly honest. Perhaps it’s because I don’t use public transport enough, or simply because I’m not interested in the idea of playing console-styled games on a handheld device. […]

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 […]

inFAMOUS First Light

infamous-first-light-REVIEW-SCORE

Platform(s): PS4 Exclusive Release: 27/08/2014 I’ve never been less excited for an inFAMOUS game than I was for First Light. Being limited to only a portion of the city and cutting down Second Son’s four powers to a mere one didn’t sound too appealing to […]
