Minecraft Xbox One Review

Minecraft is one of those games that seems like it has been around forever due to the popularity and success across all platforms it has been released on, and the huge YouTube presence it has, along with the retro graphics it is known for.  For me, it has always been a bit of an enigma.  ..

Game of Thrones Review

  There’s a well known saying in the world of gaming and most people in retail also use it as a get out clause and those few words are “well, if you’re a fan of this..” It kind of leads the review down a slightly predictable path, but let’s get torn into episode one of ..

Thomas Was Alone – Xbox One Review

  Thomas Was Alone created by Mike Bithell, was originally released as a Flash-based browser game in 2010. After releasing on several different platforms the game now finds a new home on the Xbox One. But was it worth the wait? At first glance Thomas Was Alone looks like a throwback to a much simpler ..

Halo: Master Chief Collection Review

When Halo: The Master Chief Collection was announced at the Xbox conference all those months ago the euphoria was so great you got the feeling something special was coming through your door by the end of the year.  So much hype and expectation from 343 studios to deliver the true homage to Xbox’s greatest hero, ..

Project Spark Review….Sort Of

This is going to be a very difficult review, if it is even a review at all.  I say that, because I’m still trying to work out what exactly Project Spark is trying to be, so to try and work out whether it achieves what it’s trying to be is very difficult.  Officially, Project Spark ..

Killer Instinct Combo Breaker Pack – Xbox One Review

“Thank you for the battle!” Killer Instinct originally launched alongside the Xbox One last year as a free downloadable only title. Just over a year later and it has been given a full retail release which includes the Killer Instinct Combo Breaker pack. All 8 fighters are now playable from the start and a bonus ..

Ryse: Son of Rome – Legendary Edition

  Now feels like an appropriate time to revisit Ryse, rereleased under the guise of the Legendary Edition. With this you are treated to all the Season Pass content, as well as three additional bonus maps for multiplayer and some gladiator skins. Even before it was released last November, the game had taken some flak ..

NBA 2K15 Review

    I have been a fan of Basketball games for a long time. NBA Jam was the starter for me, but the one that totally got me hooked on what potential the 3D inspired console generation could do was Total NBA ‘96 when it came out on the Playstation back in 1995 (most sport ..

Sleeping Dogs Definite Edition Review

Sleeping Dogs was my surprise hit of the last generation, and as such, remains one of my favourite games on the Xbox 360. I enjoyed everything about it, the setting, style, controls and story line were all great, and while it came under the ‘GTA clone’ umbrella, it had enough of it’s own ideas to ..

Divekick Review

If f, d, df or b, d, db + all three Punches or Kicks, db~df, db, uf + Kick then f + Punch when close and f, d, df or b, d, db + all three Punches or Kicks mean anything to you then you’re just someone who loves a good beat em up and ..

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments

Sherlock Holmes and the Curious Case of the Hand-Holding Adventure. I fancy myself as a fairly capable gamer, with regards to figuring out solutions and overcoming in-game obstacles placed in my path. Back in the days of the PS2, before the ease of access to online walkthroughs and collective knowledge of a game’s secrets, I ..
