Dragon Age: Inquisition review

It turns out the age-old claim of developers listening to the fans isn’t a complete crock of mabari dung, if Dragon Age: Inquisition is anything to go by. For a long while now we’ve been hearing that the team at BioWare had taken on board feedback from a vociferous community...

In four short years, Activision and Toys For Bob have created an unstoppable juggernaut of a franchise that shows no sign of slowing. Like the Lego games and the best Pixar films, Toys For Bob realises that creating something for the younger generation doesn’t necessarily mean you have to dumb...

DriveClub review

DriveClub is immediately striking. From the second the intro video kicks into gear, cars battling violently through tight turns and along desert roads, you know exactly what DriveClub is going to be about. Excitement is the key word here, the physics model set up in such a way so as...
