Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 1, 2 & 3. A Series Trilogy Review

by .

The Force Unleashed series let players take control of the Force in ways unfettered by continuity or common sense. Throughout the games, players were able to wield Force powers the likes of which had never been seen before. For the first time in history, LucasArts and ILM collaborated to ensure Star Wars: The Force Unleashed… Read more »

Transformers Devastation

by .

You may or may not know by now, but I am a huge fan of Transformers. Tied with Star Wars, it’s my favourite entertainment brand and my all-time top toy franchise. Specifically Generation One Transformers, which is defined roughly as the toyline and cartoon released in the mid-80s to early 90s. When Platinum announced they… Read more »

Mad Max

by .

If you’ve seen Mad Max: Fury Road this summer, I hope you agree with me that it’s an absolute tour de force of exploitation cinema. Beautifully shot, brilliantly presented and with just enough story to justify two of the biggest, baddest car chases in cinema history. The game however is sorely lacking that bombastic Mad… Read more »

The Arkham Knight Armour

Arkham Knight

by .

Arkham Knight; this is a strange one to review. Depending on your format of choice results may vary, and vary wildly they will! I do not want to bring up the PC issues, as they have been documented en masse by the hooting 1% who talk about games on the Internet, and who have positively… Read more »

Bloodborne

by .

There’s a very compelling argument that as yet, the PS4 and Xbox One lack a true must-have title. Yes there are good games, even great games but these are frequently enhanced versions of titles readily available on the last generation of consoles. As such, while the Wii U enjoys a renaissance with Mario Kart, Smash… Read more »

Assassin’s Creed Unity

by .

The release of Assassin’s Creed Unity generated a certain amount of polarised reactionism in and around the popular games media. A sizeable portion of the negative attention Ubisoft garnered was focused around the release of this game. I’ve played and reviewed the Assassin’s Creed franchise from the beginning, so it would be fair to say that AC is as… Read more »

Bayonnetta 2 review

Bayonnetta 2

by .

It’s cards on the table time. This reviewer never actually liked the original Bayonnetta and couldn’t understand why people adored it. Whilst undeniably stylish, it was saddled with an unlikeable main character, overt and pandering objectification of the female form and instant death QTEs which came from nowhere. In every way it was a ridiculously… Read more »

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

by .

There is a lot of debate as to whether the one game per year mentality harms or benefits a games franchise. It seems to work for Call of Duty and FIFA but there seems to be grounds for discussion about whether Ubisoft should – or even are able to – bring out a new Assassin’s… Read more »

Tomb Raider

by .

In the wake of the movement known henceforth as ChristopherNolanism it seems that every man and his dog wants to make a dark and gritty reboot of their IP. It most cases this turns out to be poorly-written pulp fiction neo-noir rubbish with subdued, muddy graphics and the art direction of a 14-year old emo… Read more »
