J-Stars Victory VS+ review

A breezy and mechanically simplistic offering that occasionally entertains almost despite itself, J-Stars Victory VS+ is fan service at its loosest and laziest. Part meandering, low-stakes adventure game and part rambunctious brawler, it’s an outing defined by its incessant stop-start nature; a facet that illustrates that its ideal home is...

Why The Last Guardian Is More Relevant Than Ever

The Last Guardian was announced six years ago. For five of those years, there has been silence. It wasn’t so much in ‘development hell’ as ‘development purgatory’. But it – along with its titular Guardian beast, Trico – is alive, and animated with in-game, in-engine gameplay. But, six years after...

LEGO Jurassic World review

The days of wretched licensed movie games are over, and it’s thanks to the marvellous LEGO franchise. The bar has been set so high by the likes of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and LEGO Lord Of The Rings that sludge like the Pacific Rim game just aren’t acceptable any more....

Steins;Gate review

The visual novel is an interesting style of game – an ostensibly Japanese curio that’s increasingly gaining traction in the mainstream (that is to say, outside of the hardcore JRPG/anime audience).

Tales From The Borderlands Episode 1: Zer0 Sum review

Borderlands has always had a very precise sense of humour – somewhere between self-aware self-deprecation, cultural criticism, and a flurry of dirty jokes. Thing is, the delivery of this humour can fall a little flat in the main games because you’re so busy looting everything and shooting people in the...

Assassin’s Creed Rogue review

It’s a shame Ubisoft didn’t put its full weight behind this idea, because it could have been something great. There are hints of the potential of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue all the way through the game. Small moments of clarity where playing as a Templar reveals something interesting about the age-old...

LittleBigPlanet 3 review

By now you probably know what it is you want to get out of LittleBigPlanet, and whichever direction it goes in will dictate whether this latest is for you. If the original LittleBigPlanet was innovation, its sequel was an intricate honing of that core concept, then this latest – this...
