Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection

The Ezio trilogy follows the pattern of most trilogies (original Star Wars, X-Men, etc.) where the first entry is great, the second is the best, and the third is middling. Each offers slight variations in gameplay mechanics, but the basic franchise t...

Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Xbox One review

The lack of a new Assassin’s Creed game this year has created a vacuum that Ubisoft have decided to fill with a remastering of the life and times of Ezio Auditore. Assassin’s Creed is one of Ubisoft’s most popular franchises. The games follow t...

The Crew: Calling All Units PS4 review

Two years after release and Ubisoft’s open-world racer, The Crew, still feels fresh. It was a formidable game from the start, getting players to form crews and pitting them against one another.  Against the backdrop of a full narrative campaign th...

Moto Racer 4 PlayStation 4 review

Compared to the Ride or MotoGP games, Moto Racer 4 is a pretty easy-going arcade motorcycle game. It wants you to have a good time rather than conquer the steep learning curve usually favoured by two-wheeled racers. Depending on your personal prefere...

Video Game Review: World of Final Fantasy

Dawwwwww… it’s chibi Cloud! Like many, our love affair with Final Fantasy began with Final Fantasy VII. It has continued now for nearly 20 years and includes not only the numeric sequels but also the MMORPG, spinoffs and, of course, Final...

Video Game Review: Hitman: Episode 6

Nearly eight months after Agent 47's latest adventure began in France we have reached the conclusion of Square-Enix's episodic endeavor with the release of Episode 6: Hokkaido. Having weeded out a mole at the highest levels of the ICA during his last...

Video Game Review: Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2

One great improvement the sequel makes is a robust tutorial system, offering quests that cover nearly every concept to an exhaustive extent. This makes the more advanced techniques easier to discover (and master) for newcomers.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Game of the Year Edition PC review

If ever there was a game utterly deserving of a game of the year edition it is CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This third outing for the titular Witcher, Geralt of Rivia- monster hunter for hire, is the most polished role-playing game th...

Video Game Review: Hitman: Episode 4

Staying at the Himmapan are a pair of unsavory characters: Jordan Cross, acclaimed Indie rock singer and son of billionaire Thomas Cross, and Ken Morgan, the family's attorney. Whatever thread has been holding previous episodes together is ostensibly...

Video Game Review: Bound

Presentation is where Bound does its best work, creating a truly surreal world that shifts and undulates as you dance across it. I've reviewed hundreds of games, and I can't think of one that comes all that close to matching what's offered up here --...

Video Game Review: Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 1

Telltale games are always about story, and what sets Batman apart from, say, the Arkham series, is that most of the game (or at least the first episode) feels more like a Bruce Wayne simulator rather than Batman taking on crime.

Video Game Review: I Am Setsuna

In typical JRPG fashion, up to three characters can actively take part in battles (inactive members still earn half the experience). Each carries a class-specific weapon and can equip talismans that provide unique buffs and additional slots for “Sp...

The Solus Project HTC Vive PC review

The Solus Project is a first-person survival game with support for HTC’s Vive VR kit. This review is mainly based on my VR experience, but I will touch on the game as played on a regular monitor. The game starts with the player encased in a space c...

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens Xbox One review

TT Games returns to the Star Wars universe to bring us their quirky and humorous retelling of the latest Star Wars movie with Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As a card carrying member of the Star Wars generation, I breathed a sigh of relief after...

Video Game Review: Ghostbusters

Actually playing the game, however, ends up being an exercise in repetition. So much so, in fact, that we were able to accurately call out when things, like checkpoints and brief cut scenes that introduce larger battles, were going to appear with inc...

Video Game Review: Trials of the Blood Dragon

Trials of The Blood Dragon is quite fun to watch. The explosive neon theme from Far Cry: Blood Dragon makes the transition in both good and bad ways. Starting with the good, the game looks splendid. It doesn’t quite pack the levels with high-poly m...
