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]

FIFA 18 Review

Out-foxed by PES? PES this year seemed to have one of the most incremental updates imaginable. Does FIFA 18 also abandon innovation for a year chilling on the beach? Story: FIFA continues to really push ‘The Journey’, which this year is subtitled ‘Hunter Returns’, and continues off from where young Alex left off in last year’s game. Fresh from winning the FA Cup, the youngster is then theoreticall...[Read More]

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider Review

An honour to play? ‘Death of the Outsider‘ has been released as a standalone finale to the current Dishonored storyline. Is it worth coming back to, to see Billie Lurk try to kill a god? Story: Billie hasn’t been marked by the Outsider, so it able to move about free of his gaze in her attempt to take him out. Billie first needs to find her old mentor Daud to hatch her plan, which mainl...[Read More]

Divinity: Original Sin II Review

Keep Sinning? The Divinity series has been a mixed bag, from humble isometric PC origins to grand 3rd-person open-world roleplaying spanning a number of consoles too. But with this kickstarted, PC only prequel, have Larian finally broken out from their cult following and into the mainstream? Story: Larian has always been good about making sure their stories are inclusive, and “Divinity: Orig...[Read More]

Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 Review

Extra Time needed?: ‘Pro Evolution Soccer‘ has spent the last few years playing a great game of catch-up with FIFA before arguably overtaking it a year or two ago. Is this the year it takes a significant step ahead? Story: One area that certainly hasn’t caught up with FIFA is the ‘Be a Pro’ mode which now feels light years behind FIFA’s story mode, with generic text screens, little int...[Read More]

Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series – Episode 1 Review

Gotham Shitty: Telltale is back in Gotham, but can the series come out of the shadows and stand as strong as Telltale’s most revered franchises? Story: Like with the previous series, this is very much Telltale’s version of Batman and Gotham, with some notable changes over the comics (or movies, depending on which you are a fan of). This first episode has some pretty emotionally charged elements to...[Read More]

The Escapists 2 Review

Throw away the key?: The Escapists was a neat little 16-bit crafting game that seemed to lead the way on a whole host of similar survival-style games over the last few years. Will this sequel prove just as popular? Story: The fact that The Escapists 2 features a neat little tutorial immediately makes it that much more accessible than its predecessor, and the fact it’s delivered through a neat litt...[Read More]

Life is Strange: Before the Storm – Episode 1 Review

Storms ahead?: With a new engine, new developer, (mostly) new voice cast and no Max Caulfield, is “Life is Strange: Before the Storm” just a colossal waste of time? Story: Set before Max’s return to Arcadia Bay, ‘Before the Storm’ is a prequel designed to tell you more about Chloe, and fill in some of the gaps around the character of Rachel Amber, who never really featured much in the ...[Read More]

F1 2017 Review

Where there’s a Williams there’s a way!: F1 2016 completely re-energised a series that had been frankly flagging since the introduction of the current set of consoles. Can the “F1 2017” game build on last year or does it rest on its laurels? Story: Improvements to the career mode are almost instantly noticeable – Codemasters have expanded and improved upon the options and content avail...[Read More]

Fable Fortune Review

Fortune favours the bold? With no numbered Fable game in the works, does this CCG get you a good fix of humour and style from Albion to keep you tided over? Gameplay: Fable Fortune plays very much like Hearthstone or Magic the Gathering, borrowing many of the classic gameplay elements. Rather than mana, you have gold to spend on playing cards, which grows over each round. Many cards can’t be playe...[Read More]

Constructor Review

Constructive Criticism: 20 years on, the first thing that Constructor HD made me feel was old. But I was a big fan of the original as a teenager, does this PC classic still hold up though? Gameplay: Even in 1997, Constructor was pretty unusual in not offering any missions or a structured campaign. Instead, there are a number of different scenarios and win conditions available, which can be played ...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky 1.3 update makes it the game you always wanted

A huge update has dropped for No Man’s Sky, a year after it was first released. The game was an unfortunate disappointment and failed to live up to expectations upon launch. Developer Hello Games were even on the receiving end of death threats, and everything went quiet for a really long time. The small UK studio has been quietly hard at work on delivering on some of those original promises,...[Read More]
