    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...

    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,...

    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...

    Rocksmith 2014 isn't just a game, it's a teaching revolution: We go clumsy hands-on

    By 19 September 2013

    When we walked into the Gibson studios to have a go on Rocksmith 2014 we expected an awkward press event. What we saw was a room full of beer, pizza, hair, black clothes and more hair. Feeling suitably comfortable in a rock environment we got our demos...

    Xbox One hands-on video: 360 vs The One

    By 19 September 2013

    As excited as we are about the Xbox One, we can't help but feel somewhat sad, because the console that has served us (mostly) brilliantly for the past eight years - one console lost to the red ring - and we're going to miss it. So, while we had our non-working...

    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...

    By 18 August 2013

    "You're a toy!" shouts Woody to Buzz Lightyear in the 1995 classic movie Toy Story, which stars toys that are alive - despite their young owners having no idea. It's one of those movies that touches upon the childhood imagination. Disney Infinity taps...

    By 13 August 2013

    When Microsoft announced that it's new Xbox One console wouldn't have backward compatibility, it had to decide what to do with the Xbox 360. The answer, it turns out, was to redesign it to look like the Xbox One, to make it part of the family. Microsoft...
