Titanfall review: Rawhide

Titanfall review: Rawhide

Story gives us the ups and downs of Titanfall in this Review. Pros: Easy to pick up, fast paced, satisfying shooter. Epic combat. Well-balanced weaponry. Well-designed solid variety of maps and game modes. Excellent tutorial that prepares players for combat. Non-public stats. Cons: Minimal Weaponry and unlocks. One-hit kill lock on melee. Capped frame rates on PC. Antiquated lobby system. No private lobby. No spectator mode, considering the game has been created on the Source Engine, this is somewhat disappointing. [...]

Dark Souls II review: Death is Just the Beginning

Dark Souls II review: Death is Just the Beginning

) Pros: Game and atmosphere is impressive Improved mechanics compared to the first game Difficulty and satisfaction is still there Cons: Not for casual gamers Not a game you can relax on Final Verdict: 9/10 (A very well designed, challenging and rewarding game with much to offer to the player willing to brave its unforgiving gameplay). _______________________________________________ Namco Bandai supplied us with a review copy of Dark Souls II for the Xbox 360, beating my first boss has stood out most [...]

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2: A House Divided review: Neighborhood Watch

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2: A House Divided review: Neighborhood Watch

While our Episode 1: All That Remains review of Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2 focused on what happened after the first season’s harsh and heavy ending, Episode 2: A House Divided picks up right where the first one left off and introduces us to some new and old characters that’s going to be a huge part of Clem’s story moving forward. Needless to say, there will be spoilers for Episode 2 littered about in the review below. But we’ll [...]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review: Into the Abyss

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review: Into the Abyss

With developer Mercury Steam upending Castlevania’s cannon and gameplay mechanics with the first Lords of Shadow, it has the un-enviable task of not only building on the first game’s lore, but also to prove to series fans that they know how to make a game worthy of the Castlevania lineage. Has Mercury Steam succeeded? Read on to find out. A word of warning: some plot points will be discussed in the review, so be mindful of spoilers. The Prince of [...]

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 1: All That Remains review: Survival of the fittest?

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 1: All That Remains review: Survival of the fittest?

Clementine is lost. She’s battered mentally and emotionally. It’s not misdirection or misguidance that plague her, but rather a sense of anguish and loss of hope. Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Season 2 is so far a perfect mix of melancholy, action, and consequence of choice wrapped into one. Titled “All That Remains”, this first episode sees our lone character Clementine struggling to live in a harsh reality. The game brings into view the lengths to which humanity will go to [...]

Battlefield 4 PS3 and PS4 multiplayer review: Warfare excellence…when it works

Battlefield 4 PS3 and PS4 multiplayer review: Warfare excellence…when it works

Our Battlefield 4 multiplayer review is finally here! Now, if you were wondering why it took us this long, the reason is simple: we want to give ample time to a game that’s main selling point is its multiplayer. We wanted to review it playing against “regular” players and not those chosen by EA or any other company; and what’s written below is what you’ll experience when you play the game now once you’ve applied the necessary updates. Before you [...]

KontrolFreeks Review: Spend a little and rise above

KontrolFreeks Review: Spend a little and rise above

For many console players the KontrolFreek is a necessary tool for gaming destruction, providing a substantial amount of elevation that helps lead to a more accurate shot. I have been using KontrolFreeks for years, and have become totally dependent on the things. Using a controller without them now feels alien, with the standard sticks seeming imprecise and less comfortable to use for long periods. If you play on higher sensitivities, like myself, you’ll discover that ‘Freeks really do help with long-distance [...]

Ryse: Son of Rome review: Are you not entertained?

Ryse: Son of Rome review: Are you not entertained?

  So the Xbox One kicked off it’s launch line up with Ryse: Son of Rome, it’s not the greatest game I’ve played, but it’s certainly not bad. Story: Ryse revolves around the story of a Roman soldier, Marius, as he quickly climbs the ladder of army ranks by hacking and slashing his way across the Roman Empire. Everything happens pretty quickly and while the story tends to drift more towards the politics of Rome rather than Marius, I actually [...]

Adventure Time review: Don’t explore this dungeon, it’s terrible

Adventure Time review: Don’t explore this dungeon, it’s terrible

Ever since I first discovered Adventure Time I was hooked. So, when I heard about a full retail game coming to consoles, I knew I had to play it, but I warn you now, don’t buy it. Don’t go near it. If your kids ask for it for Christmas, give them something else instead of this. It will literally ruin their Christmas, like it ruined my day. I enjoyed the game for maybe two minutes, pushing three. For the opening [...]

Call of Duty: Ghosts review: A dog of a downgrade

Call of Duty: Ghosts review: A dog of a downgrade

This generation has been quite the journey for first-person shooter titles. Call of Duty, with developer Infinity Ward at the helm, blasted its way in and completely reinvented the FPS genre. We saw titans like Halo being surpassed by this new power; this new franchise that somehow got away with annualising its releases, compelling millions of gamers to drop millions of dollars every single year. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare tossed aside the cliché World War II setting, and [...]

Batman: Arkham Origins – A completionist review by Pixel Enemy

Batman: Arkham Origins – A completionist review by Pixel Enemy

We’ve previously written about our issues with Batman: Arkham Origins, and held off reviewing the game until we felt we had a fairly complete package to work with. Well, we’re finally in a position where we can say we have a finished game after WB Games patched the title and we went as far as completing virtually every single challenge to 100% completion for this review. We fully understand the review is a little on the late side, but we’re [...]

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate HD review: Mirrors always make you look better

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate HD review: Mirrors always make you look better

I might not be the most hardcore fan of Castlevania out there but I’ve played  – and enjoyed — the majority of them. This time was no different. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate HD proves to be a mighty addition to the series, blending up-to-date graphics with classic gameplay that fans will be accustomed to. If you’re not exactly well acquainted with Castlevania and the Lords of Shadow story, then you’ll suprisingly find this game actually caters to you well, [...]

Battlefield 4 single-player campaign review: Theater of war

Battlefield 4 single-player campaign review: Theater of war

Can war be beautiful? Battlefield 4, developer DICE’s latest game about violent conflict on a massive scale, orchestrates carnage and fire like a stage play. The explosions are spectacular, red, and almost palpable with the heaps of dust that sweep across your view. The gunfire is striking as it echoes off the walls of a concrete pipe, nips the ground at your feet. And the dirt that flies up and meets your face isn’t placed at random, it’s exact, so [...]

How To Survive review: Brain stew

How To Survive review: Brain stew

This review only covers the single-player portions of How To Survive. I couldn’t access the game’s multiplayer for unknown reasons. How To Survive stumbles in execution. Tedious, and rough, How To Survive’s ideas feel unrefined. It’s mired by repetitive design, bland characters, and a tired genre. Combined with a misused crafting system, and a convoluted, Sims-like stat balancing act, it brings the dread of its boring depiction of a zombie apocalypse into reality. Set on three neighboring, undead-infested islands, How [...]
