Tennis In The Face review

When it come to reviewing games there’s a lot to take into consideration, the reader needs to know if the game is worth getting and of course the developers need to get a general feel on how their game is going in the big bad world. Sometimes however you get to review a game that is so simple, straight forward and intuitive that reviewing it becomes a bit of a challenge. 10tons have created ...

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare review

The Call of Duty series has been going as long as I can remember and aims to bring a fast paced first person shooter to the masses along with a playable Campaign mode that drags you into the world of some special ops team. However, what we have seen in the past is sometimes the simple reskinning of what started out as a great series which can sometimes leave you feeling a bit flat and unfulfilled....

Sky Force Anniversary review

Sky Force Anniversary is a classic shmup. It’s a vertical shooter with dozens of enemies to blast, bullets flying liberally around the screen, and your skills tested thoroughly. It’s a good one too, with a smart difficulty curve that compliments its comprehensive upgrade system splendidly. When you first play Sky Force Anniversary you’re treated to a Symphony of the Night style playable demonstrat...

Silence review

Silence is the brainchild of Daedelic Entertainment, you may not have heard much about them but the German based company have come up with something very special that will surely put their name firmly on the gaming map. From the moment I launched the game, I was immediately relaxed. The title screen was gorgeous with an autumnal feel and piano music slowly playing in the background. The title scre...

Watch Dogs 2 review

I’m a huge fan of the open worlds that Ubisoft create. From stalking the rooftops in Assassin’s Creed, or creeping through alleyways as Mr Fisher, to surviving the wilds of Far Cry. I’ve absorbed myself in the tales they’ve told and loved (just about) every minute of it. It will come as no surprise then that I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the first Watch Dogs, but when the sequel began to start...

Turtle Beach Stream Mic review

Finding the right equipment for audio setup on the Xbox One isn’t as simple as it should be. Problems such as headsets suffering audio bleed through, creating an echo in your party chat, or pucks that connects to the controller malfunctioning, makes achieving crisp audio nightmarish. This is especially irritating if you intend to stream or otherwise record your game sessions. Thankfully the new Tu...

Dishonored 2 review

Dishonored 2 has taught me a lot in the past week. Firstly, I’m not that good at being stealthy, I’m also not very patient, but I also learnt that Dishonored 2 is a blooming awesome game that let me play in whichever style I felt like. For those of you that have already play the original game, you’ll be please to know that you are getting the same sort of game, but with many improvements that make...

Titanfall 2 review

With Vince Zampella and his team of Infinity Ward veterans at the helm, there was hope that Titanfall 2’s single player offering would be something impressive. And indeed our hopes were realised. It’s not the most gripping story overall, but smart level design that compliments the fast, fluid movement of your pilot, as well as an excellent bonding experience between you and your Titan&...

Blue Rider review

Every now and then something comes along that is so simple, intuitive and fun that it could quickly become a classic. Blue Rider is just that. Argentinian developer, Ravegan, have created something with enough nostalgic charm, cute visuals and pick up and play accessibility to grip you throughout it’s short experience, and it’s great. From the second I launched the game is was clear th...

Gas Guzzlers Extreme review

There has been a glut of racing games lately, with a good number of them featuring some form of battle element. Gas Guzzlers Extreme falls most definitely into that last category. Imagine, dear reader, a race series where the aim of the game is to destroy the other racers. Will Gas Guzzlers have the fuel economy of a 5-litre V8, or a sleek Japanese hybrid? The aim of Gas Guzzlers then is to climb ...

Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 420X+ review

After reviewing the excellent Elite Pro Tournament Pack, I had very much changed my opinion on Turtle Beach headsets so I was more than happy to jump in to review the Ear Force Stealth 420X+. It’s hard not to judge headsets to what you consider to be the best, and there’s a huge difference between the 420X+ and the Elite Pro, which should be expected given the price difference. The build quality, ...

Manual Samuel review

Although it’s brevity and depth makes it little more than a proof of concept with experimental mechanics, Manual Samuel still manages to put a smile on your face and challenges you to approach everyday tasks – and a few more extreme ones – in a way you’ve seldom approached them before. You are Samuel, a complete douchebag who’s rich, pampered, and arrogant. But after a fight with your girlfriend a...
