Dark Souls 2 review: Get the spare controllers ready

Dark Souls is a game revered by many gamers as a truly difficult game to play. It punished the lazy and rewarded the patient. It provided a unique world to explore and harsh environments and enemies to beat. It's no wonder that when From Software announced Dark Souls 2, expectations were no less high. With the promise to be...

The Walking Dead 2: A House Divided review: Deserves your undivided attention

A House Divided is exactly how the second season of The Walking Dead should have started. After a slow first episode with not a lot going on, the second episode finally kickstarts the season and delivers a couple of hours filled with action, intrigue and fateful choices you’ll probably live to regret – the full Walking Dead experience. If you...

Thief review: Stealing the silver

Thief, as you might have guessed, is a game about being a thief, and for the most part it succeeds in making you feel like one. Sneaking through the shadows, picking pockets, busting locks and lifting every shiny object that isn't nailed down - all the while avoiding the ever-watching City Watch - is a true thrill,...

Fable Anniversary review: It’s good to be back

It has been 10 years since we first traveled to the kingdom of Albion on the original Xbox console. Now, Fable Anniversary takes us back there on the Xbox 360, with HD graphics, a new save system, and perhaps most important of all - achievements. Fans of the action RPG would be glad to know that beneath the new...

Halo: Spartan Assault review: Mindless fun in the Halo universe

The Halo franchise is no stranger to the odd spin-off, what with games like Halo Wars and Halo: Reach exploring different genres and storylines. Halo: Spartan Assault does both – it’s a top-down shooter, set in between the events of Halo 3 and Halo 4, from the perspective of two new characters: Spartans Palmer and Davis. It’s somewhat of...

The Wolf Among Us: Smoke & Mirrors review: A darker fairy tale

The second episode of The Wolf Among Us is titled Smoke & Mirrors, and you couldn't ask for a more befitting title. In the world of Fables, people and places are usually not what they seem, but Smoke & Mirrors takes it to whole new levels of deception and confusion. It may look and sound like the noir styled...

Might & Magic X Legacy review: Severe case of nostalgia goggles

Might & Magic X Legacy
If you haven't been playing RPGs on your PC for the last decade, Might & Magic X Legacy might appear as a strange relic, with bad graphics, unintuitive controls, and outdated mechanics. While all that is technically true, Might & Magic X Legacy is more of a period piece, attempting to recapture the essence...

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood review: Pass it on to your little brother

Younger siblings can be a pain, no two ways about it. They tease, annoy, break stuff and always seem to get away scot free, while the older ones have to turn the other cheek and look after them the best they can. It's a heavy burden to bear, almost a curse of brotherhood if you will. Max knows the...

The Walking Dead 2: All That Remains review: Remains to be seen

Telltale Games' award-winning video game series, The Walking Dead, is back for a second season, starting with the grimly titled episode "All That Remains". Just as the name might suggest, All that Remains is bleak and somewhat slow-paced, and leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth - but for all the good reasons. In this episode (and...

Battlefield 4 review: Where war is pure delight

Some would say war is hell, and for the most part they are correct. However, the war in Battlefield 4 is pure delight, with engaging action and breathtaking graphics. The multiplayer battles are an exciting mix of infantry and vehicular combat, just as they always were, and offer a variety of fun modes to keep you entertained for months...
