Solstice Arena for PC Review

As the barbarian warrior, Hamhock sat in a dome of glowing crystal light, he wondered if his life would soon be at an end. Was it to be victory or foul death at the hands of the enemy... Amazingly, it was victory! Total and sweet tasting victory.

Pokémon X and Y Review

Back through the mists of time in 1996 a game series came to the Nintendo Gameboy that changed the gaming environment for millions of people. No matter who you were you could play and enjoy Pokémon. It has brought people together the world over and continues to do so to this day. With additions to the franchise including a successful and long running TV series, the epitomy of playground trading card games combined with heavy merchandising capitalised upon this obsession. For the past 16 years this hasn't changed and neither has the game in its essence. Top down movement and levelling monsters should be showing its age but instead is more popular than ever. Now X and Y brings the 7th generation of Pokémon and this time, something's very different.
Beyond Two Souls2

Beyond: Two Souls Review

Beyond: Two Souls aims to be something different. In a market packed with shooters, adventure games and action games, it's creator, David Cage, has described it as "like four movies or something." As such the focus is on spectacle and story, but what room does that leave for gameplay?
Knights-of-Pen-and-Paper

Knights of Pen and Paper Review

There are a lot of things in the world that makes you a nerd; your love of video games, the comic book collection you started at age nine and still re-read with enthusiasm, and those television series you watch over and over, by yourself or with a friend because you love it that much.

Despite these actions that will title you a “Nerd”, by society or oneself, it should be said, by my opinion alone, that there is nothing nerdier (if that can be considered a word) than rolling a natural D20 in a game of Dungeons and Dragons and getting that critical hit.

Skydive: Proximity Flight Review

When I covered the release of Gaijin Entertainment's Skydive: Proximity Flight last week my first impression was that it was a niche title released exclusively for adrenaline junkies who spend their spare time flying through the air at ungodly speeds with their hopes pinned on some well constructed fabric. I was surprised to discover this was not the case and Skydive: Proximity Flight was challenging and fun, even to someone whose idea of risk is another half spoon of sugar in their tea...
Kingdom-Hearts

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix Review

Kingdom Hearts is an acquired taste in the sense that you wouldn't think that a Final Fantasy and Disney crossover could ever work, but it does. I've never played the series at all so I’m going in with an open and impartial mind to avoid a biased opinions for this review. Compared to a lot of people out there, I'm not a die-hard fan of Final Fantasy which made it even more surprising how much I loved this game. It is a colourful and vibrant adventure which features a vibrant story line without taking itself too seriously, particularly in light of the humorous dialogue between classic Disney favourites Donald Duck and Goofy.

Shadow Warrior Review

Everything I saw regarding Shadow Warrior before the games release screamed awesomeness. I was hooked on all of the teasers as well as all of the information that came out about the game. I'm a huge fan of older titles being remade too, though I'd never played the original I was sure to enjoy this title, right?

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 Review

The world of One Piece has always been a bit odd to those who don' t really don't understand the whole idea behind it. That and if your new to Anime. Though I'm still ages behind on the story I'm aware of enough of One Piece to get rather excited about this game. The question is, can One Piece work in game form?

Dumb Ways to Die Review Teaching Railway Safety in the Most...

Metro Trains Melbourne might have just stumbled on gold with this campaign. We're all aware of rail safety but not everyone adheres to them, there's still that plank that tries to race the level crossing, there's definitely going to be someone who drops their smartphone or tablet onto the tracks and think's it's safe to climb down and get it, and there's always that one person who stands too close to the edge of the platform and well.. Yeah.

Dumb Ways to Die touches upon these rail safety issues in a light hearted and hilarious manner as well as showing us other dumb ways to die. What began as a public service announcement has now also been turned into a brilliant mobile game that'll definitely kill the time that even the longest commute will take but doesn't stray too far from the original message.

Alien Rage Unlimited Review

Alien Rage is right up there in the list of bad names with such shining examples as Englebert Humperdink and Spotted Dick.
GTA-V-Heists

Grand Theft Auto V Review.

After five long years since the last game we finally have a new instalment in the Grand Theft Auto series and it makes a grand return. The first thing you have to do if you own an Xbox 360 though is that you have to install 8GB to your hard drive because it’s a massive game and very impressive for this console generation - this takes around 20 minutes so enjoy that.

Lums iOS Review

Sometimes I find myself unable to think of a eye catching and engaging way to start my writing. Other times I'm just to angry or annoyed about the product I'm writing about. Today is the second, more cynical option. If at this point your still reading then allow me to explain further on why a little, rather charming iOS game called Lums, made me once again take up arms again back business practice in mobile games.

Payday 2 Review.

Payday 2 is a fun, tense and unique experience, never have I played a game that revolves around heists.

The Chaos Engine Review

Have you ever sat down with a nice cup of tea in your hand, popped the telly on and watched one of your favourite shows only to spot an actor on screen for three minutes before that nagging question “Where have I seen him before” starts forming in your mind. Now replace “Telly” with “PC” and “Actor” with “Chaos Engine” where you will understand the first impact it had on me. Unfortunately, that was the only comical and slightly enjoyable aspect I received from this game.
