    Bioshock Infinite review

    By 28 March 2013

    Bioshock is one of our favourite games of the past 10 years, quite simply, it was one of the most interesting, inspiring and playable titles we've ever sat down with. It was also fiendishly hard for us because, while we'd say we're lifelong gamers, we...

    The Darkness II quick play preview

    By 19 August 2011

    The Darkness is one of the most under-rated FPS games of this generation. Coming from StarBreeze, makers of the excellent Chronicles of Riddick games, the comic-book adaptation was a crazed mix of violent action, Mafia saga and dark fantasy, starring...

    Duke Nukem Forever review

    By 15 June 2011

    Duke Nukem Forever almost doesn’t need a review, just a flowchart. Fourteen years of development has resulted in a scruffy, scrappy mongrel of a game which, in a lot of ways, should have been put down permanently several years ago. The graphics and...

    Mafia II review

    By 27 August 2010

    If there's one thing we admire about Mafia II, it's that it really doesn't pussy-foot around. In fact, Mafia II would have removed the word "foot" out of that sentence and stuck in a couple of other words beginning with F for good measure. You know where...

    Bioshock 2 - Xbox 360 review

    By 10 February 2010

    By all logic, Bioshock 2 should not be this good. Not only is it a sequel, but it's a sequel to a game that really didn't need a sequel. We've seen Rapture, we've fought the splicers, we've had the rug pulled out from beneath our feet and we've seen Ryan's...

    Top Spin 3 - Xbox 360 review

    By 8 July 2008

    While Sega’s Virtua Tennis series brought lawn tennis back to the gaming masses with its somewhat arcadey representation of the sport, the Top Spin titles have consistently offered much more meat to tuck in to. The only problem is that unlike other...

    Bioshock – Xbox 360 review

    By 21 August 2007

    Every gamer out there can’t have failed to hear all about Bioshock. Billed as an FPS set in a mysterious underground art-deco dwelling known as Rapture, the hype has been building for an incredible amount of time. But can it really be even half as good...

    The Darkness - Xbox 360 review

    By 25 June 2007

    No, The Darkness isn't the game of the rock pop band staring Justin Hawkins in spandex, but a horror First Person Shooter based around a 21-year-old hitman for the mafia. It's clearly tough being a gangster. According to 2K Games, there's the stress of...

    Dungeon Siege Throne of Agony - PSP review

    By 10 March 2007

    When I first encountered Dungeon Siege on the PC some seven years ago it took over my life for quiet some time. So can a PSP version with a new quest do the same? We took a closer look. For those not aware of the Dungeon Siege series, its RPG meets live...

    Family Guy - PS2 review

    By 4 November 2006

    You've seen the cartoon series, now you can play the game, but is this just another pointless cash-in from the marketing department or actually something worth playing? We take a closer look. Based on the adult cartoon of a dysfunctional family in Quahog,...

    Dungeon Siege II - Broken World - PC review

    By 25 August 2006

    Following on from last years Dungeon Siege epic, this bolt on quest sees you once again battling the forces of evil that want nothing more than the wreck havoc on your world. It's typical fantasy fare once and again and although the game has switched...

    Prey - Xbox360 review

    By 18 July 2006

    Prey’s been a long time in coming. In fact when its release was first slated, Jumanji was wowing kids everywhere and Foo Fighters released their debut album. Oh how we remember 1995. During its lengthy gestation period, Prey’s been sliced and diced...
