    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dawnguard Review

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dawnguard

    Dawnguard is considerably better than most of Bethesda's recent Fallout 3 DLC, but you'll be sorely disappointed if you go in expecting to find Skyrim's version of Bloodmoon or The Shivering Isles. As the first wedge of downloadable content for the frankly gargantuan... more

    Mass Effect 3: Leviathan Review

    Mass Effect 3: Leviathan

    As Mass Effect 3's first post-release chunk of single-player downloadable content, Leviathan leaves a bittersweet taste. 2012 has not been kind to Mass Effect, and it feels as if the Internet... more

    Final Fantasy XIII-2 Review

    Final Fantasy XIII-2

    Final Fantasy XIII-2 is not a watershed for the genre, nor is it a return to the franchise's glory days. What's in a name? In the case of Final Fantasy XIII-2, the answer is quite a... more

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Review

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

    Reckoning is a workmanlike interpretation of what makes an RPG tick, placing a spotlight on all the right mechanics and features that most titles struggle to perfect. Back in 2006 baseball's Curt Schilling did the impossible and managed to... more

    The Last Story Review

    The Last Story

    Full of gags, bawdy humour and pratfalls, The Last Story has got charm to spare. Some critics would have you believe that the JRPG is stagnating into... more

    Torchlight II Review

    Torchlight II

    Torchlight II is up there with the best examples of the genre, but Runic Games makes very little attempt to advance the genre beyond what we were already comfortable with a decade ago. Torchlight II is a game that plays by the rules, and most of those rules are... more

    Pokemon Black Version 2 Review

    Pokemon Black Version 2

    Black and White 2 are top of their class, but they highlight as many ageing qualities as they do endearing ones. They tread an all too familiar path in a series in need of some evolutions of its own. Time and time again we return to Pokemon because it's reliable. From a... more

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings: Enhanced Edition Review

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    With a combination of additional content and cutscenes The Witcher 2 on Xbox 360 is one of the most lovingly crafted fan-services you'll find. After I scored the PC version 9/10 last year, CD Projekt RED has taken the... more
