Mortal Kombat X review

Realising it shouldn’t rock a boat it spent so long trying to stabilise, NetherRealm has made Mortal Kombat X more an evolution of its predecessor than another completely new offering. Throughout the entire noughties the Mortal Kombat series was the living embodiment of one of its defeated characters at the...

Zombie Army Trilogy review

The very concept of Nazi zombies has become a weirdly prolific subgenre. We’ve seen plenty of zombie modes in Call Of Duty over the years, and Zombie Army Trilogy itself began life as expansions for the Sniper Elite series. But does stretching what is a series of kitschy add-ons into...

Bladestorm: Nightmare review

Despite being from the same developer, Bladestorm isn’t really a Dynasty Warriors-type game Sure, you will be cutting through swathes of enemies on vast battlefields, only here you will be holding buttons down instead of mashing them for combos.

LA Cops review

It’s immediately apparent which game inspired LA Cops the moment you start playing it. It may sport an isometric viewpoint and polygonal characters rather than its muse’s top-down sprite-based visuals, but this is clearly a Hotline Miami follower, albeit one in which this time the player is on the other...

Can Drake Save Next-Gen?

After showing the world it can spin mature, emotional storytelling with The Last Of Us, Naughty Dog is ready to return to the story of Nathan Drake, and mix that bombastic Hollywood adventure movie with the nuance and craft the studio has become known for… Do you think there’s been...

Toukiden: Kiwami review

With Nintendo currently holding a firm grip on the Monster Hunter series, those without a Nintendo console must surely feel left out, especially with the lack of beast-laden titles on the other current-gen boxes. Toukiden: Kiwami is looking to change that, giving fans of the aforementioned series something unique, yet...
