Steep Review

I miss the extreme sports genre of gaming really badly. During the noughties, they came in droves and were largely incredible games – Tony Hawk’s, SSX, Aggressive Inline, Skate, Mat Hoffman’s Pro BMX, Rolling, Jet Set Radio, Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX, Amped… I’m sure I’m still missing some out, but that is a list absolutely […]

Watch Dogs 2 Review

I seemed to be in a relative minority when it came to Watch Dogs – I absolutely adored it. Its shortcomings (predominantly its story and characters and how its marketing over-promised and over-hyped) were largely in areas I didn’t really mind shortcomings in, while the things it did well (mission structure, lively and engaging open […]

Tearaway: Unfolded Review

I spent £13 on Tearaway: Unfolded. I feel doubly guilty – as a PlayStation Vita owner, I never bothered buying Tearaway despite being somewhat interested in it, and then didn’t even get its PS4 counterpart until it was too cheap to pass up. So how did it fare? Pleasing Atoi is the sweetest character I’ve ever […]

Batman: Arkham Knight Review

I must admit I’m a little bit blind when it comes to superhero games. I played the two excellent Spider-Man games on PlayStation 1, and had goes here and there of other games, but that was about it. I missed Batman: Arkham Asylum entirely, and only got its sequel, Arkham City, because I had preordered […]

Bully (aka Canis Canem Edit) PS4 Review

Bully, called Canis Canem Edit in UK thanks to one Jack Thompson (remember him?), is, put simply, my favourite game of all time. Since I first got it in 2006, I’ve now played it in various forms and on various formats four times: twice as Canis Canem Edit on PS2, once as Bully: Scholarship Edition (now […]

Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst Review

I loved Mirror’s Edge. A lot. But, seeing how the game failed in sales – how it was half price within a month. and a pittance within six, I’d written it off as one of those one-off experiences alongside Bully, Brutal Legend, Psychonauts, Sunset Overdrive and many of my other all time favourite games. So […]

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Review

It’s been five years now since Uncharted 3 came outand capped off an absolutely stellar trilogy of games. A trilogy that is now a quadrilogy, thanks to the latest instalment, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Did it live up to the quality bar set by the last two? Summary Uncharted 4 takes place in three […]
