    Not a Hero Review

    Not a Hero

    I don't know what a chocolate and monkey milkshake would taste like, but it somehow sums up Not a Hero perfectly. As a 'vertical slice', the kind of demo publishers and developers like to... more

    Tembo The Badass Elephant Review

    Tembo The Badass Elephant

    Tembo could have been great, but sadly it's a game in which you're made to crawl over the line instead of gloriously smash through it. I'm no expert on game design, but I've played enough over the years to know... more

    Just Cause 3 Review

    Just Cause 3

    Frustrating controls, a bland world, and various technical issues stop Just Cause 3 from being the mindless action classic it clearly wants to be. For a game so magnificently large, Just Cause 3 also feels disappointingly... more

    Skylanders SuperChargers Review

    Skylanders SuperChargers

    Skylanders Superchargers is another solid entry in a franchise that has done gangbusters for Activision, and fans will enjoy the new vehicle gameplay and adventure-strewn story. A bit like Manchester United post-Alex Ferguson, Skylanders, despite... more

    Transformers Devastation Review

    Transformers Devastation

    I'm happy Transformers Devastation exists and thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with it, but it's not quite the game I imagined as an idealistic child. And it's four hours long. When I was a boy I used to watch the original Transformers movie on repeat,... more

    Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition

    A by-the-numbers remaster, and one that would've benefited from a bit more love. For those who just wanted to see what all the fuss was about on their Xbox One or PS4, however, it suffices. Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition - aside from having the worst name of any... more

    Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin

    A worthy technical upgrade, but changes to enemy spawn locations serve to add frustration and highlight issues with the original release. I've often felt that Dark Souls 2 follows the misguided notion that more... more

    DmC Devil May Cry

    DmC Definitive Edition's customisation tools that allow the player to tweak gameplay to suit their own style is what makes this an excellent remaster for newcomers and veterans alike. Remember back in 2013 when all the internet had to get mad about was a... more
