    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...

    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...
