Rollers of the Realm Review

Rollers of the Realm Review

With the cavalcade of pre-Thanksgiving blockbusters now beginning to fade into a distant plume of dust, it’s refreshing to look at a game that’s trying something a bit different. Big money sequels have their charms,…

Far Cry 4 PC Review

Far Cry is an unusual series, insofar as none of the games have borne much more than a passing resemblance to each other. The first was a fairly standard shooter with the caveat that it…

Rugby 15 Review

There are new football games every single year, but rugby is a sport that’s been hit and miss when transferred to the world of videogames. There’s a simple reason for this; it’s a complex game…

Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault Review

Here’s a quick clarification so Company of Heroes 2 players can determine their level of interest in Ardennes Assault: there’s no multiplayer stuff. You don’t get to use the Ardennes commanders in multiplayer (at least,…

Randal’s Monday Review

Randal’s Monday Review

If there’s a particular art to making an adventure game, I reckon it comes down to the puzzles more than anything. The art, dialogue, writing, story, and general flow all matter too, obviously, but that’s…

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Review

This review discusses the campaign’s story at length. I’m not going to spoil anything that hasn’t already been spoiled in pre-release trailers, but these days, I think that still deserves a bit of a warning….

Football Manager 2015 Review

I have a suspicion that most of the people who read the annual Football Manager reviews are those who are 99.7% sure they’re going to buy the latest installment of the game. The rest actually…

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has a season pass, Pope still Catholic

Alien: Isolation Review

Warning: this review contains spoilers for a movie that was released 35 years ago. Although if you haven’t seen Alien, then you’re a monster and should rectify that immediately anyway. No sympathy. There’s a very…

Lords of the Fallen Review

Lords of the Fallen Review

Successful innovators tend to be emulated. For a time, every shooter released after Doom was a ‘Doom clone.’ Some of them deserved that name. Others were fine games in their own right. Once there were…

Dreamfall Chapters: Book One Review

Sorry, everyone, but I’m going to have to drop into melodrama and feelings for a little bit. Bear with me. Dreamfall – the second game in the The Longest Journey series, and the direct predecessor…

Ryse: Son of Rome PC Review

Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome may not be a particularly strong blip on the radars of many PC players. After making some friends on the platform with the notoriously system-intensive Crysis, the company seemed to…

Styx: Master of Shadows Review

Here’s the good news: Styx: Master of Shadows is better than this year’s Thief game. If you’d told me a few years back that a third-person stealth title from Cyanide would impress me more than…

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Let’s not beat around the bush: you’re interested in the Nemesis system. Without wishing to sound harsh, I can’t say I’m surprised; it really is the one unique and special thing that Middle-earth: Shadow of…

Dark Souls 2 Crown of the Ivory King DLC Review

If you’ve read my reviews of the preceeding couple of installments in the Dark Souls 2 Lost Crowns DLC trilogy, you’ll know I’ve been impressed. Sunken King demonstrated a confidence in interconnected level design that…
