Xbox One Digital TV Tuner review: The final piece in the entertainment jigsaw

By 2 hours ago

If you want or need further confirmation that Microsoft has a different path for its current console than Sony's route with the PS4 to date, the Xbox One Digital TV Tuner is it. By effectively turning the Xbox One console into a Freeview HD set-top-box,... >>

Bayonetta 2 review: Raucous and racy, the best game you'll never play

By 8 hours ago

Anyone who bemoans the alleged lack of strong lead female characters in games hasn't come across Bayonetta. Frankly, she makes Lara Croft look like a prissy little wuss. Bayonetta is a witch, for starters, has guns built into her high heels, can transmogrify... >>

F1 2014 review

By 17 October 2014

Making Formula One games is a famously thankless task - mainly due to the fact that world's most-watched sport is a licensing minefield. Because all the track banners, minor sponsors' logos on cars and the like have to be true-to-life, it's simply impossible... >>

Far Cry 4 preview: Three hours in Kryat with just heavy weaponry and a buddy for support

By 14 October 2014

We’ve been very eagerly awaiting Far Cry 4 ever since we first got to play a brief section of the game during E3 2014 in June. But while that was enough to give us a small, tantalising taste of the setting and feel of the game, it wasn’t anywhere... >>

The Evil Within review

By 14 October 2014

As with any other entertainment medium, there are games for generalists and games for purists. The Evil Within doesn't so much position itself in the latter camp as plant a flag there, lock the doors and refuse to let anyone in until they have died 100... >>

Alien: Isolation review

By 8 October 2014

In space no-one can hear you scream. Our neighbours, however, can and often have of late as we've shuffled our way through one of the scariest, clever horror survival games we've played in years. Yep, Alien: Isolation has arrived. Some horror fans will... >>

DriveClub review

By 7 October 2014

No self-respecting console can truly be said to have arrived until it gets that exclusive racing game. Everybody loves showing the world how they could have been Lewis Hamilton if they hadn't somehow fallen into that job pushing PPI claims at the call... >>

Assassin's Creed 5 Unity preview: Familiar format draws upon multi-player to evolve series

By 6 October 2014

With Ubisoft being a French company it's almost surprising it's taken many iterations of one of its best-known series, Assassin's Creed, to pull influence from its home country. Albeit, in Assassin's Creed 5: Unity, that's 18th Century Paris deep in the... >>

Forza Horizon 2 review

By 3 October 2014

In the great race of social driving games, Forza Horizon 2 just pipped DriveClub and The Crew to the finishing line and can therefore be seen as a trailblazer for its genre. But has it got enough to keep the others at bay or will it soon be overtaken?... >>

FIFA 15 review

By 23 September 2014

In the past, reviewing a FIFA game has been a tricky affair. How can one wax lyrical over minor updates, no matter how many there are? Last year the series stepped foot onto the next-generation consoles, with PS4 and Xbox One showing off their graphical... >>
