‘Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know!’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

Adventure Time should be a cartoon that can easily be adapted to a game, many of its episodes tend to fit the very structure of a level in an adventure and the pop culture references provide so much material that it could be the best game ever.  This is one of the quandaries that Adventure […]

‘Deadfall Adventures’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to first person shooting games now people tend to think of the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield where the action is mainly based on multiplayer battles and the solo campaigns are somewhat of an afterthought.  Sometimes we get lucky though and we get something like Deadfall Adventures which while it may not […]

‘Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

It’s fair to say that the horror game has made somewhat of a small comeback in PC gaming, with Outlast being released and now Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.  These two titles have brought back atmosphere and more importantly upped the fear factor, with some saying A Machine for Pigs is one of the scariest games […]

‘Grand Theft Auto V’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

When looking at the Grand Theft Auto games it comes as no surprise that it all started in 1997 a top down 2D classic that caught attention for the level of violence it portrayed on gamers screens.  Imagine that, 2D and caused controversy about violence.  Now we are in 2013 and Grand Theft Auto V is released, […]

by Phil Wheat

Oh my god… Just when you thought Techland’s Dead Island couldn’t get any worse, along comes the sequel! I think it’s safe to say gamers were severely burned by the original Dead Island – after all the original filmic trailer bore ZERO resemblance to the finished product, which itself was full of bugs, glitches and […]

‘The Croods: Prehistoric Party’ Review (3DS)

by Phil Wheat

Inspired by the Dreamworks animated movie The Croods, this latest in a long line of video game tie-ins tries something a little different to other such games.
