    Hitman Go review

    By 17 April 2014

    Square Enix has been clever in utilising its rich heritage of intellectual properties in the last couple of years. Not only has it managed to breathe new life into old characters and franchises, such as Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the Tomb Raider reboot,...

    Child of Light preview: Storybook RPG plays with dream-like charm

    By 3 April 2014

    When most games these days are based around shooting things while head-nodding to a rock-out soundtrack, or racing fast cars while drumming techno into your ear canals, it's a refreshing change to play a game like Child of Light. Imagine unfolding a hand-drawn...

    Hands-on: Goat Simulator review

    By 1 April 2014

    Goats are threatening to be the internet's next big superstars. We've seen hilarious YouTube clips of goats screaming like humans, fainting goats and, to top all that, now there's the brand new PC game: Goat Simulator. Yes you read that correctly. And...

    Infamous: Second Son review

    By 21 March 2014

    Infamous: Second Son is the game that every PlayStation 4 owner has been waiting for, whether an existing Infamous fan or not. It's the cool TV ad - well, the American one without the shouty British voice-over anyway - that's done it. All those quick...

    Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes review

    By 21 March 2014

    When Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain was announced, along with a controversial teaser trailer debuting Kiefer Sutherland as the new voice of protagonist Solid Snake, we doubt there would have been a single true gamer not excited. Admittedly, they...

    Hands-on: Monster Legacy review

    By 20 March 2014

    If the thought of doing battle with an army of cute-yet-deadly monsters to save a leafy world from dark forces piques your interest then Monster Legacy could be for you. Unlike many other titles in this RPG class Monster Legacy works on a free model where...

    Titanfall review

    By 14 March 2014

    And so the second wave of next-generation games starts with what is unarguably the most talked about title since its first showing at E3 in Los Angeles last June. Titanfall was Microsoft’s "one more thing" during its Xbox One press conference, even...

    South Park: The Stick of Truth review

    By 7 March 2014

    If Mortal Kombat was offensive in its day then surely South Park: The Stick of Truth is 2014’s coup for the crown. But not so much because of blood, guts ’n’ gore. Instead The Stick of Truth takes the turn-based role-playing genre, douses it with...

    Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes preview: Playtime with the prologue to Phantom Pain

    By 6 March 2014

    When Konami showed a demo of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain during E3 in June last year, there was little doubt that it would be a significant refresh of the entire franchise. For a start, Kiefer Sutherland takes on the role of Solid Snake - controversially...

    Thief review

    By 28 February 2014

    Thief in 2014 reboots a much loved gaming franchise that was born over 15 years ago. It’s been ten long years since the last title in the series, and in the time since there are inevitably great swathes of punters who either don't know or, perhaps,...

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze review

    By 21 February 2014

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is proof positive that 2D platformers still have a place in modern gaming. It is, quite simply, a superb platform title and a much needed one for the Wii U. The return of Donkey Kong might not necessarily reinvigorate...

    Rayman Legends review

    By 21 February 2014

    Too weird. Too retro. Too French? Whatever the criticisms aimed at the Rayman series over the years, they were swatted aside by 2011’s excellent Rayman Origins, a defiantly traditional 2D platform game that saw the limbless character celebrate his 16th...

    South Park: The Stick of Truth preview

    By 15 February 2014

    It takes less than a week to create an episode of South Park, the rude, crude animated TV comedy. But South Park: The Stick of Truth is quite a different story; a game that has been on a rocky production road and missed its 2013 scheduled release date...
