The Wolf Among Us – Episode 1 Review

I love Fables. Love it. Love, love, love. It’s a comic that manages to tap into my love for dark and well-written comics, and my love for dark fairy tale variants, at the same time.

Urban Trial Freestyle Review

Poor old Urban Trial Freestyle, released to a flurry of indignation about its similarity to a certain other series with Trial(s) in the name.

Shadow Warrior Review

Shadow Warrior is a gleefully silly game that delights in both its own whimsical irreverence, and in the utter bloody carnage it displays every five seconds.

Rise of Venice Review

There was a brief moment during my time with Rise of Venice where I thought it may have the potential to be a sort of Renaissance-era Elite.

Alien Rage: Unlimited Review

It’s got an appropriate name, I’ll give it that. It’s definitely aliens that you’re firing at, so that’s half of the title taken care of, and I certainly felt rage while playing it.

Legend of Dungeon Review

Legend of Dungeon is a new hat collection simulator from the sartorially aware folks at Robot Loves Kitty.

Total War: Rome 2 Review

Like one of the multitude of tiny factions spread across its vast campaign map, Total War: Rome 2 has found itself assailed on all sides by rampaging technical problems, militant tribes of AI issues and the bewitching obscurity of mysterious and ill-explained new features.

IncGamers vs. Game Dev Tycoon – The Collective Review

Greenheart Games’ Game Dev Tycoon shoves you in a 1980s garage with a trusty coding machine and a road map to a 35 year videogame development journey.

Rayman Legends Review

I have a new Xbox 360 controller. My old wired controller served me well – ever since I first bought a 360, in fact, which means probably about six or seven years – but it was getting a bit… broken.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Review

I’ve been a bit mean on poor old Splinter Cell: Blacklist, I admit.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Review

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified will make an excellent study for game historians.

Saints Row 4 Review

Saints Row has changed. The first game was a vaguely silly Grand Theft Auto rip-off that had some neat twists, but was slathered in problems and flaws – most notably, “not being as good as Grand Theft Auto.” The second was an utterly superb game that focused on the ridiculous and managed to evoke regular laughs, both with its script and its missions.

Payday 2 Review

Day 1: The Jewellery Store
I figured I’d be pretty good at this heisting stuff.

Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches DLC Review

You probably noticed that we ran a story last weekend about how Square Enix’s Thief has turned jumping into a context-sensitive action, with the lead level designer explaining this decision by saying: “Jumping, bouncing up and down, kind of broke the immersion … We didn’t want you to be the master thief and you just tend to fall off stuff all the time.”
I mention this now because Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches does let you jump, and – even though I regularly fall off stuff because, although I’m supposed to be the legendary master assassin Daud, I’m actually an idiot puppeteering his body – I find this quite immersive.

Europa Universalis IV Review

Clichéd as it may be to mention that a game made me lose track of time, it’s still a guaranteed indication of a thoroughly absorbing title.

Guacamelee! Gold Edition Review

I had so many puns for Guacamelee! Gold Edition today, when writing a story about its impending launch, and I tried to include as few as possible so that I could splash them out across this review.

Divinity: Dragon Commander Review

The PC is being inundated with tantalising ‘world map’ strategy games at the moment.
