Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (Video Game Review)

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (Video Game Review)
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is unashamedly Batman: Arkham Asylum meets Assassin’s Creed, but while it liberally steals most of its gaming DNA from those two franchises, developer Monolith refine the mechanics of both in some impressive ways and throw in some fantastic ideas, resulting in a rare...

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (Video Game Review)

If you’re disappointed by the lack of well-realised story-driven single player games out there, then The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a mystery well worth exploring...

Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes (Video Game Review)

The potential for great user-created content is even better this time around, but it feels like players have also been saddled with doing the leg-work to create their own lengthy and rewarding game, since the one bundled with Disney Infinity 2.0 is anything but...

The Golf Club (Video Game Review)

The Golf Club (Video Game Review)
The Golf Club one-ups Tiger Woods in some big ways even if it feels slightly unfinished, as ambition and sheer content just about manages to trump disappointing presentation...

Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 (PS3 Review)

Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 1 (PS3 Review)
For fans of Bioshock and particularly the first game, the chance to take a guided tour through Rapture at its pre-downfall decadent heights is a well-constructed joy, but sadly the two-hour-long DLC is too half-hearted in most other respects...

PS3 Review: Bioshock Infinite

PS3 Review: Bioshock Infinite
While Bioshock Infinite never tries to be a revolutionary leap forward for the franchise, it’s still everything you could want from another Bioshock story, taking that fun, creative action and the series’ stunning art design and storytelling and painting it onto a richer, brighter, broader...

PS3 Review: Ben 10: Omniverse

PS3 Review: Ben 10: Omniverse
If you’re a fan of the numerous shows in the Ben 10 series, then Omniverse offers up an unusually polished, well-made platform/brawler with some satisfying, if simple and repetitive gameplay. Unfortunately, it’s mostly a fans-only game that makes no attempt to welcome newcomers into the fold...

PS3 Review: Rise of the Guardians

PS3 Review: Rise of the Guardians
The simplicity and lack of variety means that it won’t sway anyone over the age of 10, and even then, the lack of story and content means kids can plough through everything in the game in barely half a day. It’s a cut above a lot of licensed tie-in games, but Rise of the Guardians still...

PS3 Review: Darksiders II

PS3 Review: Darksiders II
It’s light on story and still pretty damn derivative, but Darksiders II adds enough of its own flavour to make it a fantastic action-RPG experience. With clever puzzles, an impressively huge world, tonnes of quests and incredibly satisfying gameplay, it’s a surprisingly huge game that expands on...

Project Zero 2: Wii Edition Review

Project Zero 2: Wii Edition Review
While it might not be the proper sequel fans have been hoping for, Project Zero 2: Wii Edition serves as a wonderful, long overdue reminder of just how terrifying video games can be...
