    The LEGO Movie Videogame Review

    The LEGO Movie Videogame

    Fun, but it just doesn't have the same appeal as other entries in the series. I should have watched the movie first. The game has given me plenty of... more

    LEGO The Hobbit Review

    LEGO The Hobbit

    After the impressive voice acting and general spectacle of the main adventure starts to fade, you’re left with an altogether dull world in which to roam. It's another Lego game! Beyond a new setting and some minor tweaks, it's the... more

    OlliOlli Review

    OlliOlli

    An entertaining and intelligent skating game, but missing that extra spark. The appeal of OlliOlli is instant. Falling into that stereotypical category... more

    Watch Dogs Review

    Watch Dogs

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review

    Valiant Hearts: The Great War

    Valiant Hearts is a confused game, but also a brave one tackling difficult subject matter. Valiant Hearts is confused game, and one that seems to have two distinct... more

    Hyrule Warriors Review

    Hyrule Warriors

    Hyrule Warriors is fun, pays decent fan service, and uses the Dynasty Warriors template well. If you know what Dynasty Warriors is about (bash out combos in an attempt to... more

    Skylanders: Trap Team Review

    Skylanders: Trap Team

    Activision's toys-to-life series is still wonderfully entertaining, but Trap Team's relentless encouragement to buy new toys can be draining on your enthusiasm – and your wallet. As much as I try and tell myself otherwise, it is a kids game, and if you're... more

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Review

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker isn't the most taxing puzzle game in the world, but it's well-paced and enjoyable all the same. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is causing me a lot of trouble. Not from a... more

    Octodad: Dadliest Catch Review

    Octodad: Dadliest Catch

    A rewarding, idiosyncratic romp imbued with nonsense, humour, and pathos. Although less convincing than a trenchcoated, bowler-hatted,... more

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Review

    LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

    LEGO Batman 3 starts slow and then gets a lot better, and then overwhelms with so much content it's hard to be disappointed. I don't think I've ever played a game so clearly made with hardcore fans in... more

    Child of Light Review

    Child of Light

    A beautifully-presented and surprisingly deep RPG that is deserving of everyone’s attention. Child of Light is bloody brilliant. Mixing a wonderful aesthetic with combat... more

    Mario Kart 8

    Bayonetta 2 Review

    Bayonetta 2

    Bayonetta 2 is a system seller. It's a Nintendo-published game that is rarely seen, and a game that will legitimately make non-Wii U owners jealous. I don't think I enjoy Bayonetta, and its sequel, for the reasons gaming's... more

    Super Smash Bros. Review

    Super Smash Bros.

    Smash Bros. for Wii U outshines its portable counterpart, comfortably sitting as one of Wii U's very best games. Update - 29/11/2014: Now that EU servers are live it's finally possible to... more
