Ronin review

Anonymous masked ‘heroes’ fighting against a seemingly all-powerful entity is hardly a new videogaming idea. Indeed, its continued popularity perhaps serves to prove that, at least when it comes to bloodthirsty rampages, it offers just enough narrative uncertainly to develop audience interest without getting in the way of the action....

Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess review

If there is one thing that the Deception series does well, it’s making you feel fine with being bad. Its unique spin on the strategy RPG genre, by the way of using traps to kill enemies, makes Deception stand out as one of the more inventive series on the market....

Rory McIlroy PGA Tour review

Is that it? What happened? Where did everything go?

But it – along with its titular Guardian beast, Trico – is alive, and animated with in-game, in-engine gameplay. But, six years after...

Rocket League review

You’re sick of competitive multiplayer, right? These days it’s all headshots and killstreaks, stymied unlocks and capturing bases, and regardless of the shade of brown that is used it’s all feeling a little familiar. Irrespective of the machine gun you use, the only thing that seems to differ in competitive...

Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition review

Just when you thought Devil May Cry had gotten confusing enough, Capcom decides to re-release an instalment first seen in 2008. Two and a half years ago this entire series was rebooted with a new variation of the lead character, a new development studio and a seemingly new path to...
