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.

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 »

There is earnestly nothing new to say about The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, no hyperbole that hasn’t been used over and… Read more »

Kid Icarus: Uprising [3DS]

by .

With the 3DS playing host to remakes, updates and sequels in place of genuinely new titles and the rumour mill of forthcoming games doing little to change this trend, players could be forgiven for largely ignoring Kid Icarus as yet another remake – albeit of a game that they had never played. And given the… Read more »

Okami

by .

In the entertainment industry, critical acclaim and commercial success rarely go hand in hand.  Whilst this is arguably less true in the games industry, it nevertheless remains the case that an original title, no matter how good it is, will frequently be overlooked in favour of a recognised IP with a number after its title. … Read more »
