    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,...

    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...

    Toyota FT-1: Gran Turismo 6 concept car makes real-word appearance at Detroit show

    By 18 January 2014

    As concept cars go, the Toyota FT-1 concept made a good case for star of the show at the Detroit Motor Show 2014. And if you’re gutted that you never actually get to go up close and personal with these types of concepts, then here's a little treat -...

    PlayStation Now hands-on: The future of gaming, the death of the console as we know it?

    By 10 January 2014

    Welcome to the modern world. Gone are the days when popping to Blockbuster to grab a DVD was commonplace Friday night practice. Indeed disc-based formats could be on a slippery slope, even for gaming if PlayStation Now has anything to do with it. PlayStation...

    Gran Turismo 6 review

    By 11 December 2013

    There was some trepidation about the release of a new Gran Turismo game. The fifth title in the series was, frankly, dull and that put a lot of pressure on Gran Turismo 6 to get it right and bring the series back to the must-have it once was. Not only...

    Beyond: Two Souls review

    By 8 October 2013

    Beyond: Two Souls isn't your average game. Quantic Dream has crafted an invested, emotive story above all else, then delivered it on a scale reminiscent of a Hollywood movie by embellishing its on-screen characters with a true A-list cast. Ellen Page...

    Puppeteer review

    By 11 September 2013

    The 2D platform renaissance continues apace with Sony Japan's Puppeteer - a Playstation 3 exclusive - following hot on the fast-moving heels of Rayman Legends. It's platformer season. We may have had a mild dig at the latter game's storyline, but it was...

    Splinter Cell: Blacklist review

    By 27 August 2013

    From the moment the disc was sucked into our PS3 console, Splinter Cell: Blacklist did its damnedest to keep us enshrouded in the on-screen action. But far from the promise of a stealth title, Blacklist intros with the rip-roar of guns blazing in a US...

    Splinter Cell: Blacklist gameplay preview: First play

    By 11 July 2013

    Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the latest in the Tom Clancy's franchise, continues the third-person stealth-meets-shooter series in a similar vein to the previous Conviction title. Pocket-lint got a play of Blacklist ahead of its 20 August release date. Does...

    Beyond: Two Souls preview: First play of Quantic Dream title on PS3

    By 15 June 2013

    The boundary between movies and games is ever-blurring. Quantic Dream's Playstation 3 exclusive Beyond: Two Souls is testament to that. Pocket-lint played through a section of the game at this year's E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles, California, and we were...

    Sony PS3 slim review

    By 15 February 2013

    The PS3 is dead, long live the PS4. Except the PS3 is so far from dead it's almost ridiculous. For one thing, there is a persistent rumour that when the PS4 launches, it will not be backwards compatible with PS3 games. That's not a hardship for most,...

    Far Cry 3 preview

    By 10 October 2012

    Far Cry 3 certainly does things differently. In just 20 minutes of playtime we had taken a load of magic mushrooms, blown away a pack of tigers with a shotgun and flown a paraglider directly into a man's face. Traditionally a game about the open world,...
