Just Dance 2016 review

[Reviewed on Wii U] Once a year around Christmas time since 2009, the latest instalment of one of our guiltiest pleasures lands in our laps. Close the curtains, lock your doors and tell the neighbours you’re hosting a swingers’ party, dealing drugs or building up your collection of cats –...

Sword Art Online: Lost Song review

[Reviewed on PS4] To label Sword Art Online: Lost Song as one of the most generic JRPGs out there would be to do the term ‘generic JRPG’ an injustice. That would make SOA:LS peers with, say, Tales Of Zestiria, and at least there’s some fun to be had from that...

WWE 2K16 review

[Reviewed on PS4] It’s been a strange year for the WWE’s top star, John Cena. Since he won the United States championship at Wrestlemania, he’s restored prestige to the belt by putting on great matches week after week, working with fresh opponents and trying new moves to keep up with...

Tales Of Zestiria review

[Reviewed on PS4] Can an unapologetic JRPG cut it on PS4? It’s an approach that has served the Tales series well during the PS3 years, while its peers seem content to chase the western RPG aesthetic and experience. Bandai Namco’s series has carved a niche among Japanese games by sticking...

The studio takes concepts you could never imagine being draped over its aging adventure game skeleton, and transforms the covered bones into...

Guitar Hero Live review

This isn’t the Guitar Hero you remember. This isn’t the Guitar Hero that was butting heads year on year with Rock Band. This isn’t the Guitar Hero that would likely have faded into the background against Harmonix’s genre rival this year, in a marketplace that – despite a five year...

Dragon Quest Heroes review

Every franchise needs a good all-star spinoff, right? Final Fantasy has Dissidia, Zelda has Hyrule Warriors and now Dragon Quest has Heroes. The Hyrule Warriors comparison is quite apt, actually, since both Heroes and Warriors share both the same developer and army-destroying gameplay popularised in Omega Force’s Dynasty Warriors series....

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 review

Riddled with bugs and generally irritating failings, it’s clear to see why so many of the gaming public have railed against Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. This is not the way it should be – the potential last hurrah for the series (with the Activision/Hawk contract running out by the...
