    Command & Conquer preview: We go hands-on with the free-to-play reboot

    By 27 August 2013

    Many of the more recent Command & Conquer games have failed to live up to our lofty expectations. There was a time when the franchise was so massive and so popular that not only was every new game received in the same way a Call of Duty might be these...

    At every video games exhibition or conference there is always a game that is like Breaking Bad, in that those who have seen it won't shut up about it. At Gamescom 2013 in Cologne, Germany, that game is Titanfall. While it was officially announced at E3...

    Ultima Forever - Quest for the Avatar iPad and iPhone preview

    By 12 July 2013

    Originally designed as a massive, sprawling PC game, Ultima Forever - Quest for the Avatar fits better with iPad and iPhone. Not only is the multiplayer game easy to dip in and out of when you're on the bus, but its controls suit a touchscreen so perfectly...

    FIFA 14 Xbox One, PS4 preview

    By 17 June 2013

    A couple of weeks ago, thanks to a hands-on session at EA's UK office, Pocket-lint played a 65 per cent finished build of the Xbox 360 version of FIFA 14. And we loved it. There are plenty of new features which yet again raise the bar for the annual footy...

    FIFA 14 preview

    By 6 June 2013

    You would think that as last year's FIFA 13 was such a massive leap forward for the perennially favourite franchise that there would be nowhere to go for FIFA 14. You'd be wrong as, thanks to a good couple of hours of playtime with the latest addition...

    SSX review

    By 6 March 2012

    Of all the games we played on the PS2, it was SSX and SSX Tricky that swallowed up the most hours. We would pour away time flipping, grabbing and grinding in some of the best-designed tracks ever witnessed in a video game. But SSX got tired. Like Tony...

    Shadows of the Damned hands-on

    By 11 May 2011

    If there was one word to describe EA's forthcoming darkly humorous horror shooter, that would be "bonkers". Admittedly, thanks to Dizzy Rascal and a whole generation of teenagers and clubbers, it's an overused adjective at the moment, but never has it...

    APP OF THE DAY: Dead Space review (iPad 2 / iPad / iPhone)

    By 21 April 2011

    On the whole, the App Store is awash with cuddly, sweet, garishly coloured applications, featuring characters that you'd rather hug than dismember. And even when you're asked to commit some kind of genocide - usually on the pig population - they laugh...

    Warp hands-on

    By 11 April 2011

    In the past, digitally-delivered games have often been overshadowed by their more expensive, boxed counterparts, yet anybody who's been following the titles appearing on XBLA and PlayStation Network lately will have seen some amazing games that can proudly...

    By 8 April 2011

    American McGee is back, and he's brought Alice with him. Alice: Madness Returns is the long-awaited sequel to the strange and twisted take on Alice in Wonderland that was released at the end of 2000. Memorable for its inventiveness, beautifully gothic...

    Portal 2 hands-on

    By 8 April 2011

    The original Portal was almost an afterthought, a bonus game for those who bought The Orange Box mainly for Half-Life 2 and its episodic extensions. However, the first-person puzzler was so addictive and ingeniously paced that it ended up overshadowing...
