We've been waiting for the UK release of Sony's microconsole for quite a while. It was hinted that the PS Vita TV might make its way to regions outside of Japan at the end of last year - and now it's finally here, renamed the PlayStation TV, or PS TV... >>

Far Cry 4 review: A shooter like no other

By 14 November 2014

All Ajay Ghale wanted was to scatter his mother's ashes in Kyrat. The only reason he returned home to the country of his birth was to fulfil her dying wish to be lost on the wind in Kyrat's wild and untamed landscape. He didn't plan on becoming embroiled... >>

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 review: Hits the ground running

By 13 November 2014

The war was won by FIFA many years ago, but like an oblivious Japanese soldier, Pro Evolution Soccer - better known by its PES moniker - continues to lurk in the undergrowth, carefully biding its time. Perennially citing problems adapting to the new-gen... >>

Assassin's Creed Unity review: Brothers in arms

By 11 November 2014

As long as it's been in existence, the Assassin's Creed franchise has banked a ton of its appeal on authenticity. All the games in this series - even on the last generation of consoles - boast some of the most meticulously crafted and beautiful in-game... >>

Halo: The Master Chief Collection review: High-def history lesson

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare review: A return to form

By 5 November 2014

Alienware Area-51: The mothership of desktop gaming rigs returns (hands-on)

By 4 November 2014

We rarely cover gaming rigs here at Pocket-lint, but there's something so iconic and, well, downright insane about the Alienware Area-51 that we couldn't resist. Or maybe the Greys have taken over our brains. Far from flying in from a land far away and... >>

Sunset Overdrive review: Frat boy fun
