    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

    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

    Dark Souls 3

    Watch Dogs 2 review

    Watch Dogs 2

    Watch Dogs 2 is missing a bit of refinement, and has had issues with multiplayer, but joining DedSec is still a riot and a half. It's high energy fun with engaging characters, and you can make an entire city your playground. Watch Dogs 2 has launched without full multiplayer functionality. While you... 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

    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

    Control review

    Control

    Control is Remedy at its best: pulpy, weird, and immensely satisfying to play. Its setting is a potent concoction of '60s brutalist style and wacky sci-fi. Performance issues hamper the shootouts, and the characters are a little cold, but it's the setting and atmosphere that win the day. The first words in Alan Wake, intoned by its eponymous hero, are... more
