Halo 4 Review

Halo.  When asked to think of a game that defines Xbox as a brand I would imagine the majority would say Halo.  It has been the prominent game from the start for Microsoft, and thank to Bungie has become one of the most successful game franchises of all time.  There isn’t much to say about ..

Fable – The Journey (Review)

Fable: The Journey is the latest release from the Fable franchise developed by Lionhead Studios and is a Kinect only offering.

Dishonored Review

Big thank you to Scott Barklam for writing this review: Dishonored…Not spelt correctly as far as I’m concerned but I’ll let it go, because it’s bloody awesome.  How shall I go about reaching my current target?  A question many of us will have asked ourselves playing many titles across many platforms in recent times what ..

Doom 3 – Hands On!

I love my FPS games, nothing can immerse me quite like viewing the action in the first person. And for me Doom is where it all began. Sat in my bedroom, Playstation poised and ready and the original Doom spinning in the tray. A moment in my long and chequered gaming history that I’ll forever ..

Of Orcs and Men Review

“Oh cool! You’re playing a Hulk game” exclaimed by girlfriend as I started playing Of Orcs and Men.  And I can’t say I blame her.  The resemblance between the green monster and Arkail, one of the two main protagonists in of Orcs and Men is striking – both huge, green, muscle laden beasts.  But no, ..

007 Legends – Licence to Kill Your Fun (Review)

It’s James Bond fever all over the place at the moment with Skyfall just being released and all the hype around what could be one of the greatest Bond films.

Top Gear Live

Top Gear.  Live.  It wasn’t something that I was aware existed.  I love the TV show, and when a pair of tickets became available thanks to XCN I could hardly say no.  I was very intrigued as to how Top Gear would translate in a live setting, and of course I wanted to have a ..

World Rally Championship 3 (Review)

As a Dirt 3 fan, which is probably the first rally game I’ve actually enjoyed and in turn converted me to approach this genre, I was rather looking forward to the official game corresponding with the real world rally championship – World Rally Championship 3. Developed by Milestone S.r.l, whom I recognise from my previous ..

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a breath of fresh air to console owners who are drowning in a sea of first person shooters, sports and racing games.  XCOM is a turn based tactical role playing strategy game, quite the mouthful.  It comes from Firaxis Games and is published by 2K games, and is a remake (or ..
