Evolve preview: Monster Xbox One action with one of E3's hottest games

By 12 June 2014

There are plenty of top top games at this year's E3 trade show in Los Angeles, but few have engaged us as much as Evolve. That's partly because it is an unexpected hit, perhaps. Not to those in the know, but certainly to the rest of us. Its premise is... >>

Forza Horizon 2 is more than just the original racing game with some added weather effects. As you battle to stick your supercar to the tarmac in locations across southern Europe, it's hard to not marvel at the glorious graphics while dodging oncoming... >>

Mario Maker preview: Building our own Mario levels, every Nintendo fan's dream

By 12 June 2014

One of the more quirky Wii U titles trailed during the E3 special edition of Nintendo Direct was Mario Maker. Not just a game, it allows you to build and then play your own Mario Bros levels and, presumably, then share them with a community of other gamers.... >>

Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay preview: A next-gen return to form

By 11 June 2014

Let's all welcome the Batman to the next-generation, because after playing Batman: Arkham Knight on PS4 we have to say it looks fantastic. It's a return to form following Arkham City's less inspiring turn. Key to Arkham Knight is the sheer scale of things.... >>

Far Cry 4 gameplay preview: Elephants, guns and microlites equals awesomeness

By 11 June 2014

The Far Cry 4 demo at this year's E3 expo in Los Angeles presents us with a trio of options: "Stealth / Ride / Fly" reads the fortress conquest screen. It's no contest, really, as "Ride" means we get to mount an elephant, smash down a fortress door and... >>

The Evil Within gameplay preview: It's 'the Saw of video games'

By 11 June 2014

The Evil Within is like the Saw movie of video games. Some people are going to love its gruesomeness whereas others will find its old school Resident Evil style feels like predictable old hat. We fall into the latter camp at the moment. When we first... >>

The Order: 1886 preview: A PS4 gameplay journey through an alternative Victorian Britain

By 11 June 2014

It came as quite a shock to find out that a playable level of The Order: 1886 was available to us at E3 2014. Having been delayed, it looked like the game might not make it to the show. Or, at least, we'd only see a rolling demo. However, a whole level... >>
