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).

In four short years, Activision and Toys For Bob have created an unstoppable juggernaut of a franchise that shows no sign of slowing. Like the Lego games and the best Pixar films, Toys For Bob realises that creating something for the younger generation doesn’t necessarily mean you have to dumb...
