    Dead Rising 3: The Last Agent Review

    Dead Rising 3: The Last Agent

    Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle Review

    Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle

    Short and not particularly sweet, Operation Broken Eagle is an unimpressive first stab at giving Dead Rising 3 some worthwhile DLC. The first of four DLC episodes, Broken Eagle is in theory to Dead Rising 3... more

    Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel Review

    Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel

    Unless you’re in the market for a couple of cool new weapons, Fallen Angel does little to justify the price tag. Over in just shy of an hour, the second Untold Stories episode follows a... 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

    Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Review

    Sleeping Dogs

    As a package this is as feature-complete as you could want, but it's a long way from the version it could have been. As far as titles go, "Sleeping Dogs: The Definitive Edition" is rather... more

    Sunset Overdrive Review

    Sunset Overdrive

    Sunset Overdrive has some excellent ideas, but its triumphs are sadly suffocated beneath ultra-repetitive mission design and unsatisfying enemy encounters. For most of the time you're playing it, Sunset Overdrive is insistent on... 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

    Assassin's Creed: Rogue Review

    Assassin's Creed: Rogue

    Being more of an epilogue than a sequel, Rogue falls short of delivering a full-fat experience. Generalisations incoming: It seems that there are two types of Assassin's... more

    A better version of an already good game, Dead Rising 3 on PC is as close to the game's reveal trailer as we'll get. Editor's Note: Below is an overview of the PC-specific graphics and... more

    Assassin's Creed Unity Review

    Assassin's Creed Unity

    Unity may have the intention of being Assassin’s Creed’s next-gen reinvention, but it’s remarkably faithful to its roots. Sometimes you have to look back before you move forward. Unity may have the... more

    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
