Bloodborne review

A few hours into Bloodborne, we encountered a shield next to a bonfire. After having to play through Miyazaki’s latest in a manner we were wholly unaccustomed to, learning a new way in which to play and forgetting everything the director’s previous Souls games had taught us, it was too...

Apotheon review

There’s a very simple way of putting this: Apotheon is God Of War in 2D. With that, any effort we might’ve expunged detailing its intricacies can be saved, letting you bask in knowledge with only the smallest of sentences. That change in perspective hasn’t done much to alter the gameplay,...

Battlefield: Hardline review

While it is entirely possible to discuss Battlefield without mentioning Call Of Duty, Battlefield: Hardline is just not a Battlefield game. The sheen and thunder of DICE’s Frostbite engine is unmistakable, and the loadout, perk, and Battlepack menus are all replicas of those seen in Battlefield 4. But if Hardline...

Virtual Reality Pros and Cons – Every headset assessed

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires review

Solely on a technical level, Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires is a step backwards. Last year’s Samurai Warriors 4 set a new benchmark for Omega Force’s Musou excursions but – in small bursts at the very least – this latest Empires spinoff calls the seriously slack Wii U port of Warriors...

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD review

Let’s be honest, what we’ve played of Final Fantasy’s Fabula Nova Crystallis series hasn’t been great. So far, it consists of a polarising mainline Final Fantasy title, a poor sequel to that game, and some gratuitous Lightning fan service. So, it’s actually a relief to see something different (ie something...

OlliOlli 2: Welcome To Olliwood review

If the original OlliOlli could very broadly be described as a 2D version of EA Black Box’s Skate, then its sequel is essentially a 2D version of Neversoft’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3. Any semblance of realism has been unceremoniously kickflipped to the curb, and the ludicrous gameplay is augmented...
