Darksiders Genesis Review

Genesis: Darksiders Genesis is not a Diablo clone. I just thought I’d get that out there early, considering how easy it might be to mistake this new entry into THQ Nordic’s hellish brawler franchise. Despite taking to the skies for a new,...[Read More]

Feature: GamerKnights Game Of The Year 2019

GamerKnights’ Game Of The Year 2019 2019, much like 2018, wasn’t a great year for me or the world in general. But before I depress you with more about Brexit or Trump, I’ll start to talk more about games. I’m pretty sure 2017 will remain the wa...[Read More]

Romancing Saga 3 Review

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince Review

Nightmare to play? Trine 3 wasn’t exactly well-received, but with Frozenbyte returning to 2.5D puzzling roots for Trine 4, is this latest entry just more of the same or a worthy extension of the franchise? Story: You’ll pretty quickly come to realise...[Read More]

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Review

Takes you to breaking point? Ghost Recon Wildlands was a massive success, so surely this sequel, coming a couple of years later, will be an easy win for Ubisoft? Story: One of the issues with Wildlands was the controversy around the “real world” sett...[Read More]

FIFA 20 Review

High Volta-ge? The Journey is over and Volta is “king” – but does the addition of street football add to the ever-burgeoning world of FIFA or is it another gimmick? Story: “The Journey” is over, and the Volta story mode that replaces it is a massive ...[Read More]
