‘Trials Fusion’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

I don’t know what it is about the Trials games that keep me coming back, but with the release of Trials Fusion I had to get it as soon as it was released.  I do feel I was kind of bucking the trend buying the Xbox 360 version of the game though, but looking at […]

‘Goat Simulator’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

What can you say about a game that was released on April 1st? Simple really, it was designed to be a joke.  Goat Simulator has something of a cult following now, it was made for fun and released as is including bugs and gamers are pretty much told to just go for it. The game […]

‘Spelunky’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Did you ever play a game called Rick Dangerous? The fact I’m asking that probably ages me slightly.  It was a platform games based on Indiana Jones and the controls were horrible.  What Rick Dangerous had though was charm that kept on calling you back, and this is why Spelunky, a very similar character keeps on calling me […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 3: The Crooked Mile’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Sometimes I do wonder why I put up with Telltale Games and their adventures.  If it’s not The Walking Dead, now we have The Wolf Among Us to push us towards those hard decisions we don’t want to make, and when we do get rushed into them, realise we just did the wrong thing.  With […]

‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

South Park: The Stick of Truth was met with excitement by fans when it was first revealed, but nobody probably expected the fight the game itself would have to get release.  First with the death of THQ then with delays added onto it, the signs weren’t that good.  With the delays being used to improve the […]

‘Deadlings’ Review (iOS)

by Paul Metcalf

As a fan of the game Lemmings in its original form I remember the obsession of getting as many of the weird little creatures through the level as possible, though it was always fun to see how they could be killed.  The aim though was to make it through the levels by utilising the skills […]

‘Senran Kagura Burst’ Review (3DS)

by Phil Wheat

If there’s ever been a point of controversy in video games it’s those “weird” Japanese games that never get ported across to Europe and the US – you know the ones: those that feature gratuitous, often lingering shots of girls battling it out, be it in a beat ‘em up or JRPG. Back in the […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 2 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Oh The Walking Dead you know just where to stick that dagger don’t you? When I finished the first episode of The Walking Dead Season Two I should have known what was coming, it was just a way of easing you into the trap before it ripped your heart right out of your chest.  Looking […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 2: Smoke & Mirrors’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

It’s been some time since last October when we played the first chapter of The Wolf Among Us, it had us hooked and left us waiting for the next chapter.  Since then Telltale Games released the first chapter of The Walking Dead: Season Two and made announcements of the Borderlands games and Game of Thrones. Now […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 1 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Last year The Walking Dead Season 1 was named game of the year by many critics and deserved all the praise it got.  A game that was shaped by your moral choices it gripped you emotionally and by the time it let go it left you drained but wanting more.  Now as The Walking Dead: […]

‘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 […]

The Emperor has a problem, he needs funds to build his Death Star to full glory and he needs your help…to turn it into an apartment block.  Sound strange? Well welcome to the world of Star Wars: Tiny Death Star.  The idea is simple, you build up a tower with different levels of residential areas, recreational, […]

‘Final Exam’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

Playing games can be a complicated experience sometimes, sometimes we want to play first person shooters, sometimes we want to play sports games and sometimes we want to play something that will make our brain work overtime. Then of course there are those times when we just want to beat up wave after wave of […]

‘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, […]

‘WWE 2K14′ Video Game Review

by Chris Cummings

I have been buying wrestling video games since I was a kid, being a fan of wrestling for 21 of my 30 years, I have always found pleasure playing the games each year, and as I get older there is nostalgia to it also. Sure, not every year delivers a diamond of a game, but […]

‘Dead Island: Riptide’ Review (Xbox 360)

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 […]
