WRC 6 Review – All the Fun, None of the Pain

The WRC series has been pretty well known for bringing in a level of realism when it comes to rally racing. It's something that's helped the series excel above other fast paced rally series' but at the same time it's made the games fairly difficult for those who enjoy a more casual, arcade experience. In WRC 6 however, that's all changed. The core WRC experience is still there, but there's now an option to make the game a little more enjoyable and a little more arcade.

AiRace Xeno Review

There's just something about travelling at high-speed which most of us find exhilarating. Maybe its the fact it feels illegal. Maybe it's the fact you're pushing the boundaries of what's possible. Maybe it's just the adrenaline rush of knowing that within the next few minutes you'll either stand proud over your survival or scrubbed off the wall. Doing it in reality though is reserved for those of us with the money, time, or cojones to risk life and limb for a buzz. Lucky for us gamers that developers are more than happy to make up for our over-reliance on self-preservation. For 3DS owners, QubicGames have brought the act of skimming through the air with enough momentum to flip a wombat inside out with AiRace Xeno, the follow-up to last year's critically acclaimed AiRace Speed.

Munin Review – Flying Without Wings or A Load of Old...

When you first enter the world of Munin, it is explained in beautifully presented, runic text that you have been duped by the trickster god, Loki and transformed from a raven into a human girl. Munin and Hugin were the raven messengers of Odin the Allfather in Norse mythology and quite cleverly, the developers, Gorija, put you in the unfamiliar human shoes of Munin, with Hugin helping you fly off to new levels when you complete each in turn. Considering you will have to do a lot of thinking and memorising tiles to beat some of the terrain based conundrums posed, the names of the ravens are quite apt, Munin (memory) and Hugin (thought).

The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 1 “No Sanctuary” Review

If there was ever a correct time to use a term like "explosive TV" it would be to describe The Walking Dead Season 5 premier. The hit show from AMC has finally returned to our screens, airing Sunday 12th across the pond and Monday 13th here in the UK. The show picks up straight after the events of Season 4's tense finale. But not before a mysterious flashback...

Tactical Zombies – Breach and Clear: Deadline Review

I remember a time many, many years ago where my younger self, having played a superb co-op session of Stubbs the Zombie around a friend's house, wished there would be more games with zombies in them. I think you know the punchline of this story – there are so, so many games of varying genre and quality featuring zombies now that to say the market is over-saturated is probably an understatement.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Review

As a long time fan of Kingdom Hearts it's exciting to be able to sit down with the latest HD collection release as we await Kingdom Hearts 3. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue looks to give us a glimpse into the future of the series as well as more of the series on the PlayStation 4 for the first time. The question to be answered though is if this package is worth your time and if it will really help to fill the gap until Kingdom Hearts 3.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival Edition

The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival Edition Review

It’s not very often I find myself looking on at a game's cutscene and feeling generally confused as to what is unfolding before me. After an intense and somewhat awesome fight with a great and powerful Witch I have just witnessed my master turn this woman into a mouse. Not only that, but she has now summoned some male mice which, and I quote, are horny. As all of them run on into the distance the credits roll and I’m sit confused as to what is going on. Once more, that was only the prologue. Welcome to The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival Edition.

Lara Croft GO Review – Impressively Puzzling

Lara Croft GO is the second in the series of GO mobile games from Square Enix Montreal, but where Hitman GO took on an almost table-top board game feel, Lara Croft GO takes on a more turn-based action game where every move has an impact. But how does it play? Is it puzzling perfection, or was I board stupid?
