Video Game Review: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Naughty Dog must have realized that the PS4’s base includes a lot of Xbox 360 converts, so the game’s first 2-3 hours act as both an extended tutorial and series recap. It's an unusually slow start, but things get rolling from both a narrative an...

Video Game Review: Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

Abaddon the Despoiler has arrived in the Gothic sector for vague reasons, and it's up to the Imperial Navy to stop him. The basic plot setup is perhaps on the simple side, but there's actually a fair amount of intrigue as things ramp up. While the ce...

Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed Chronicles

We enjoyed the art design of all three games, and even though a lot of design elements are simply re-skinned from one to the next they never lost their charm; India is particularly colourful and lively. The animations look good as well, particularly...

Blues and Bullets PC review – The first two episodes

I will forgive you for not having heard of A Crowd of Monsters’ episodic adventure game, Blues and Bullets. Were it not for a review key falling into my inbox from the publisher’s kindly PR people, I wouldn’t have either. And that would have be...

Video Game Review: Dark Souls III

Sticking to the infamous difficulty of the series, Dark Souls III would rather chop off your hands than hold them. As soon as you awaken, you’re faced with a few simple enemies to readjust to the controls. It’s not long after you’ve felled a fe...

Tom Clancy’s The Division PlayStation 4 review

Ubisoft takes us into a war-torn post-apocalyptic future in Tom Clancy’s The Division. Very much in the same vein as Activision’s Destiny, The Division is a third-person shooter-come-role-playing game. It features a persistent online, multiplayer...

Video Game Review: Automatron DLC

Hitman returns: a look at episode one

Square Enix’s decision to release the new-gen entry to their Hitman franchise as a series of episodes was a bit of a surprise. Having played through the content released with the first episode a few times now, it makes perfect sense. As the origina...

Video Game Review: RBI Baseball ‘16

For what should be a fun, enjoyable game that you can jump right into, RBI’s controls have an awfully steep learning curve. Balls don’t end up where you think they will, nor do players react how you think they should.

Video Game Review: EA Sports UFC 2

While UFC 2 offers far more ways to play than its predecessor, its Career Mode is nearly identical, which is a disappointment. You once again make your way through The Ultimate Fighter, earning a contract with UFC and starting your ascent through the...
