Tomb Raider: Underworld  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

A quality platform adventure that's glossier and slicker with more fluid movement and improved combat compared to the previous game. Lara may look better in a wetsuit but Nathan Drake still rules the roost however.

Tomb Raider: Legend  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Lara gets a makeover for the next generation and the result is a smoother, glossier and prettier adventure in a similar but more polished mould to the previous instalments. Surpassed in every way by the Uncharted games on the PS3, but if you don't own one then this is a decent enough substitute.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

There is No Calm Before This Storm

Life is Strange was a huge hit for DONTNOD, garnering critical and fan acclaim alike, along with awards to show for it. I was a big fan myself that, along with Telltale's Walking Dead, represents one of the best adventure games of the last decade. A followup had to be done - but when it was announced that not only a different studio was taking over - people were rightfully skeptical. While the ga...

Sundered  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

Maddening

“Sundered” is the second major release by Montreal-based Indie developer, Thunder Lotus Games. Their first attempt, “Jotun,” did little to impress me outside of its visuals, so I was hard-pressed to find a reason to give their second game a shot… but with the state of local cooperative multi-player gaming, the MJ Crew was casting about in desperation, and “Sundered” was really cheap...

Iconoclasts  Add to game list
Rating of: 3/5

She’s a Lady

Sometime around 2008, I learned about an Indie game project called “Iconoclasts.” It was, according to developer Konjak’s website – a developer, I need to mention, that consists of a one-renaissance-man team named Joakim Sandberg – a story-rich 2D Metroidvania with gorgeous hand-draw, hand-animated visuals, which would explore the nature of oppressive religion. All of those things are d...

Divinity: Original Sin 2  Add to game list
Rating of: 4.5/5

Tua Culpa

The folks at Larian Studios have really made a name for themselves over the course of the last few years. From their earliest roots in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, the Belgian studio went from an Indie outfit barely able to secure the backing of any Publisher, to a relatively consistent producer of B-rate PC gaming fodder, to a Kickstarter success story, to the new premier studio for officia...

F-Zero X  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

"F-Zero X"

Another N64 title that stays true to its SNES roots, F-Zero X retains the air hockey physics and favours speed over presentation with its colourful but rather featureless graphics. Again its the 3D modelling that is the main leap forward which features looping, rollercoaster style tracks making for a fun futuristic racer. The only problem is that in all but one department (F-Zero has a proper cha...

God of War  Add to game list
Rating of: 4/5

Older, Wiser, Bigger, Better

When the first God of War was released on Playstation 2 in 2005, it was a huge hit for Sony as well as being a great action game. The sequels that came followed the same patter or action/adventure linear path that had Kratos swing his now-iconic chain blades as he took on the Greek gods themselves. I admits, I never moved beyond the sequel, as I felt the game never offered much beyond a simple ac...

Doom (2016)  Add to game list
Rating of: 3.5/5

Fast and Furious Demon Slaying

Doom has been at the forefront of the FPS genre since its early inception, and was rebooted once in Doom 3 back in 2007, and now this new version - with a sequel already on the way. Not much has changed as Doom remains a pinnacle of FPS insanity - buoyed by the fast-paced, frantic gameplay and pulse-pounding soundtrack. Yet for all the updates and additions, Doom remains pretty much the same - bo...
