    Agents of Mayhem review

    Agents of Mayhem

    Despite fun combat and characters, Agents of Mayhem becomes repetitive and grinding. In trying to chase the popularity of Saints Row, it misses having an identity of its own.  My colleagues have, over the past few days I've been playing Agents of... more

    For Honor Review

    For Honor

    For Honor's multiplayer is special, but as a whole it's let down by the less good single player, sometimes dodgy matchmaking, and a surfeit of microtransactions. The combat, though, is fantastic — it's gutsy and weighty, and you feel like a badass.  For more detailed thoughts on for honored check out the features and videos... more

    Victor Vran: Overkill Edition review

    Victor Vran

    The high-energy fun of Victor Vran means it really is a romp, if one that occasionally stutters. While the slightly repetitive nature grates, you can easily see a few hours dissolving into Victor Vran before your very eyes. Like a vampire in sunlight. Victor Vran is well goth. This applies to both the game and the character it... more

    Get Even review

    Get Even

    Get Even's use of layered sound and even more layered story is unsettling and great, but other awkward mechanics make this psychological thriller a bit less than the sum of some very fine parts. Get Even is a weird game, and you'll probably never have played anything... more

    The Sexy Brutale Review

    The Sexy Brutale

    The secret stories Father Lafcadio uncovers are lovely, but you won't always enjoy the process of uncovering them. Still, a series of elegant murders, with elegant stories, in an elegant mansion is enough to show anyone a good time. Time and time again... Lafcadio Boone is a mysterious man. He's trapped playing out the same 12... more

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War review

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War

    It's a shame the story is so strangely paced, but you hardly need it. Fortress Assaults are great set pieces, and there's a lot of fun to be had with the upgraded Nemesis System alone.  When someone goes on Dragon's Den, clutching a sheet of five year... more

    Assassin's Creed Origins review

    Assassin's Creed Origins

    Assassin's Creed Origins has vastly improved combat and an astoundingly beautiful world to explore, but it felt a little afraid of going all in with its new direction. I have now spent many hours in Assassin's Creed Origins, and I will probably... more

    NieR: Automata Review

    NieR: Automata

    NieR: Automata has more creativity and self-awareness in its little finger than most games have for their entire run time. Don’t miss this because it’s sandwiched between other, bigger games. This review was kindly done for us by Adam Cook. Find other cool stuff he's... more

    Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice review

    Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

     Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is beautiful, discomforting, and compelling. It might challenge what you like about games, but challenge is good. You're doing yourself a disservice if you don't try it. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is the sort of game that you'll either really... more
