    A week in reviews: 18 - 22 November

    By 23 November 2013

    This week it's all about the gaming. We've crunched through both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console reviews, alongside a stack of games to get you in the mood for next-gen. But we're far more versatile than that. Never the one-trick pony, we've also...

    Dead Rising 3 review

    By 21 November 2013

    Capcom’s Dead Rising series has become a benchmark for Microsoft’s gaming hardware. When the original was released in 2006, it was the first Xbox 360 game that was truly "next-gen" - its shambling zombie hordes just wouldn’t have been technically...

    Dead Rising 3 Xbox One preview

    By 17 June 2013

    The first Dead Rising and its sequel were an acquired taste. Not taking themselves too seriously in the zombie slaughtering stakes, yet levying almost ludicrously difficult game mechanics on the player, both have attained cult status and many eyes, therefore,...

    Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D review

    By 6 July 2011

    Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D should have been a cause for jubilation. Finally we have a game that shows what the 3DS can do, proving that Nintendo's newest handheld can handle graphics of Resident Evil 4 calibre, if not quite Resident Evil 5. Sure,...

    Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds review

    By 18 February 2011

    Prepare to be confused, baffled and totally bewildered. Even if you’re not given to pondering why the Incredible Hulk might want to lay the smackdown on Streetfighter’s Ryu in a Resident Evil laboratory, or why Wolverine might pick a fight with Devil...

    Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective review

    By 24 January 2011

    With all the hoo-ha this week over the upcoming launch of the Nintendo 3DS, with its launch line-up heavy with remakes, reboots, updates and conversions, it strikes us that the games we'll remember from the DS era aren't the usual big name franchises...

    By 24 September 2010

    For Chuck Greene, it's going to be a rough 3 days. In an America still reeling from the zombie apocalypse detailed in the first Dead Rising, this one-time motorcross champ has come with his young daughter, Katie, to the casino resort of Fortune City,...

    Street Fighter and Tekken square up for ultimate brawl

    By 26 July 2010

    Two titles, two different dimensions and two different developers. The seemingly impossible mash-up between Street Fighter and Tekken is happening, and what's more - it's happening twice. Capcom will be developing Street Fighter X Tekken, featuring Tekken's...

    Lost Planet 2 - PS3 review

    By 12 May 2010

    Lost Planet: Extreme Condition was a game that nearly had it all. Designed as a flagship title for the Xbox 360, Capcom's game was a conscious effort to marry the dynamics of a Western shooter with the style of a Japanese action game, meaning that on...

    Monster Hunter Tri - Nintendo Wii review

    By 23 April 2010

    Monster Hunter Tri sticks out like a sore thumb on the Wii, and we mean that in a good way. It's epic in length, slow to develop, rich, exciting and - should you get into it - hopelessly addictive. It's jam-packed with complex systems, and has one of...

    By 26 January 2010

    Where did it all go wrong? When it first made an appearance, Dark Void looked to have it all - an interesting premise, a cool retro sci-fi style, a winning combination of gunplay and aerobatics, a dashing hero, romance and lots of derring-do. The finished...
