Need For Speed Payback Review

Fast & Spurious? Need for Speed is back after two years, and Ghost Games gave NFS a really good showing at E3, with trailers promising a Fast & Furious style plot and explosive action. Does the end product deliver? Story: Unfortunately, Payback’s story starts weakly, and never manages to recover. At the end of the day, it all boils down to a simple revenge storyline against a shadowy organ...[Read More]

L.A. Noire Review

Noire’t enough done? 6 years after the original release, and with Team Bondi long gone, Rockstar have decided to give L.A. Noire the HD remake treatment. Is this crime thriller worth going back to? Story: The remaster includes all of the DLC which was released for the game, which helps expand upon the scope of the original game, without altering the main storyline very much, as you follow the care...[Read More]

Outcast – Second Contact Review

Outstayed it’s welcome? Outcast is a game I vaguely remembered, despite never having a very capable PC at the time. Maybe it was the interesting looking worlds, the box art or the orange-shirted protagonist, Cutter. But I also remember it was largely forgotten about, even in 1999. Does it deserve a remaster 18 years later? Story: Outcast offered unbelievable freedom for 1999, and some critics have...[Read More]

Road Rage Review

Roadkill? A Road Rash reboot has long been called for by fans of the series, but with games like Road Redemption & Road Rage, is there any need to dust off the franchise? Story: Road Rage is set in the near (dystopian) future, when the government has locked down areas of the cities and violent biker gangs roam the streets… It’s not an inspired storyline, although it is delivered with enough ch...[Read More]

Super Lucky’s Tale Review

Lucky to come out the week after Mario? The original Lucky’s Tale was well received, but by measure of being an Oculus Rift exclusive, wasn’t exactly played by too many people. Will it do better as the sole Xbox One X launch title? Story: Platformers rarely have fantastic plots, and Super Lucky’s Tale falls into about every genre cliché you could image. Lucky’s girlfriend’s been taken by the big b...[Read More]

Call of Duty: WWII Review

Call of Looty: I really liked Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, but it was patently obvious that I was in a minority in liking the sci-fi gameplay and storyline. This year, Call of Duty has gone back to its roots by returning to WW II, the theatre of war which started it all for the franchise. Story: Sledgehammer are responsible for this year’s title – which has had me genuinely excited because I wa...[Read More]

Spintires: MudRunner Review

Stuck in the mud? Part Gold Edition, part sequel, does “Spintires Mudrunner” manage to drive onto console successfully, or has the game gone off-track in the process? Gameplay: I’d presumed initially that Mudrunner was a full sequel to the well-received Spintires which is now a couple of years old. However, it’s actually more like a ‘Game of the Year’ or ‘Gold Edition’ in the sense tha...[Read More]

Amazing

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Review

A colossal failure? The last Wolfenstein was a roaring success after the previous 2009 failure – but after 3 years, have Machine Games been able to craft a game which is able to live up to the E3 buzz with “Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus“? Story: Certainly, from a story point of view, it’s difficult to be disappointed. The game starts shockingly, with the first 10 minutes being...[Read More]

Fire Emblem Warriors Review

Worth getting fired up over? Hyrule Warriors was obviously a big enough success for Nintendo, because Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force is back with another attempt to mix a classic Nintendo franchise into the ‘musou’ style of game which they’ve been developing for the last 17 years or so. But is “Fire Emblem Warriors” any good? Story: Omega Force certainly don’t waste much time p...[Read More]

Cuphead Review

Mickey Mouse? Cuphead has intrigued me for a number of years. The graphics and animation look just like a 1930’s cartoon, and the boss-fight inspired gameplay looked to be really fun. But after more than three years, can this indie darling ever live up to expectations? Story: Young Cuphead has a bit of a gambling problem, it seems, as he goes all in at the Devil’s casino and loses his soul as a re...[Read More]

The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game Review

Ninja-go-away? Christmas is coming, and so that means more Lego games being released. Is this a cheap movie cash-in, or a great family-friendly action-platformer? Find out in our review of the bizarrely named The Lego Ninjago Movie Video Game. Story: The game of the movie (of the toys, an original Lego brand), follows the plot of the film quite closely, even using sequences from the film to tie in...[Read More]

Killing Floor 2 Review

Wipes the floor with the competition? “Killing Floor 2” has been out on the PC for a couple of years, the PS4 for a year, and has now finally made its way across to Microsoft’s Xbox One platform. Is there any reason to pick up or avoid this version of the popular co-op shooter? Gameplay: The Xbox version does have some exclusive content, although it’s pretty limited. Streamers get inte...[Read More]
