EA Sports UFC 2 review

[Reviewed on Xbox One] The feeling we get as we enter the third round of a bout in EA Sports UFC 2 is not entirely unlike how we feel in a Dark Souls boss battle. Our shoulders are hunched and tense. There’s a sense of fear, foreboding and determination looming...

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review

Naughty Dog is simply better at this than anyone else. When it comes to marrying narrative and gameplay, creating an interactive adventure where you can be both participant and audience, agent of events in the game and spectator of the drama this developer is ahead of all others. It gets...

Pokkén Tournament review

Pokkén Tournament is a surprising game. It’s surprising in a number of ways, not least because it even exists in the first place. For The Pokémon Company – usually notoriously protective over its IP – to give its blessing to a game in which Pokémon kick seven shades of Scizor...

Dark Souls 3 review

[Reviewed on PS4] It’s not a game – it’s an ordeal. That’s the best way to look at Dark Souls III if you want to cling onto your sanity until the credits roll, since FromSoftware does an excellent job of bending many typical gaming conventions in order to deliver something...

Oxenfree review

[Reviewed on PC] A group of teenagers dice with the paranormal during an island vacation gone wrong in this thriller adventure, but Oxenfree is as much about relationships as it is about ghosts and ghouls. It attempts to tug at your heart strings with richly developed characters, but despite a...
