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 »

Surprisingly though, these ingredients work well together to form a surprisingly playable… Read more »

Killzone Shadow Fall

It’s official, the next generation is finally upon us. After what seems like an age, PlayStation 4 is launching with a handful of titles and a heart full of promises. The first game under review is Killzone Shadow Fall, which is mostly likely going to be the first game many UK gamers play on their PS4 as the… Read more »

Bioshock Infinite

by .

Without spoiling things too much, there’s a part right at the end of the game where the constant question of whether Infinite’s floating city of Columbia exists in the same universe as the original Bioshock’s Rapture is categorically answered – albeit in a deliciously ironic fashion. It’s not quite what you would have expected which… Read more »
