Review - Unbox: Newbie's Adventure

newbie 

As far as I can tell this is Prospect Games first release, and I always find it interesting to check out a fresh developer teams first game so I jumped on the opportunity to check out Unbox: Newbie's Adventure. The title in itself really didn't tell me anything but a few gameplay trailers peeked my interest, I mean how many times in your life have you played as a cardboard box? Exactly

Review - Agents of Mayhem

agents-of-mayhem-bad-vs-evil-trailer-ps4

From the creators of Saints Row we get a new and action packed game. It is more of a crossover to be fair but putting the two up against each other you can clearly see these are two separate games. So how could this be bad? Well, the only problem is that with the success of Saints Row 3 and arguably 4 I kind of felt like something was missing from Agents of Mayhem

Review - The Escapist 2

The people behind Worms, Team 17, surprised me with the release of The Escapist and since then I have been addicted to the game. So I wasn't hard to convince when I was asked if I was interested in reviewing The Escapist 2

Review - The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II

header 

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing came out of nowhere when it first released and took our reviewer by storm. It was just what he wanted at that specific time in his life and it served up a delicious treat and got a well deserved score in return. Years has passed and the opportunity to try out the second game in the series as it released on the current-gen consoles I had to jump in and try it out for myself and even though you might think this is nothing more than a Diablo clone there is so much more lurking beneath the surface of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II

Review - Tekken 7

tekken7logo

 

If you have been around for at least a few years in the gaming industry, either as a writer or just a fan of video games you know there are two fighting games that everyone mentions when asked if they can name some, one is Street Fighter the other, is Tekken. I remember spending way too much time with one specific Tekken game while I was stationed in the Army because all they had was a dusty old Playstation and one game, Tekken 2. But years have passed and here we are ready to explore yet another numbered Tekken game namely Tekken 7.

Review - Tales of Berseria

tales-of-berseria-anteprima-cover

I love exploring games that I have no previous experiences with, it is like a loot filled chest with everything you always wanted or something you never knew you always wanted, but sometimes that chest grows teeth and starts chasing you and you run away from that chest promising yourself never to return to it. Luckily for me, Tales of Berseria lands in the middle, it is a game I had no idea I would get so into.

Review - Double Dragon 4

I remember me and my nephew, celebrating a winter holiday at my grandpas house, with a NES and Double Dragon rented from the local video shop. It might have been the greatest weekend of my life. And here we are, I am now a grown man with kids of my own and playing Double Dragon 4 on my Playstation 4...

Yakuza is a series of games that I have always had a love hate relationship towards. But with the latest release, Yakuza 0 I am leaning towards love way more than I have ever before

Review - Dishonored 2

3156683-dishonored-2-review-promo

I have always been a huge fan of the stealth-based game genre, and Dishonored was one of my favourite games the year it released. It played through it numerous times with different experiences each time and with the release of Dishonored 2 I was overexcited to once again see what this series had in stores for me this year. However, I didn't expect it to be even better than its previous release in every way possible.

Review - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Special Edition)

maxresdefault 1

The Elder Scrolls is one of my top game series of all time, as with most fans I started my love for the series with the release of Oblivion but has since then gone back and played Morrowind. So when Skyrim was announced I was beyond excited and here we are, years later and I am reviewing one of the greatest experiences of all time all over again but this time on a Playstation 4 with the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition.

Review - Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

call-duty-infinite-warfare-release-date-xbox-one-ps4-pc

It is time for a new Call of Duty, love it or hate it but it is still one of the most successful franchise in gaming history and you can never take that away from them. And speaking of love and hate, there has always been those feeling whenever you speak on a new Call of Duty release as you have you haters from the start who don't enjoy the games and instantly hate on them before they even release and you have the opposite team which are Call of Duty purists and claim this is the gift from God when it comes to FPS. Luckily for me I belong to none of these camps as I always try something before I make up my mind about it.

Review - Modern Warfare Remastered

COD-20160913-ModernWarfare

I remember playing Call of Duty on Playstation 3, and how amazed I was at the visuals for this game. I remember thinking that this would be it, this would be the greatest FPS game ever created, and even though many years have passed since my brain worked like that, the Call of Duty franchise might just have some of the best FPS games in history but one thing is for certain, it is one of the most successful franchise ever created. And here we are, years later and we already got a remake of the forth Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare: Remastered for the Playstation 4.

Review - Skylanders Imaginators

maxresdefault

Whenever I am tasked with reviewing a game mainly focused on kids I turn to my own kids, hand them the controllers and just sit back and take notes. Not only what I myself see but how the experience make them feel and how easy it is for them to interact with the game. But whenever a huge package from Activision turns up at our door and I know it is Skylanders season the weekend is usually set and the kids can't get their hands on the game fast enough.

Review - Dragon Quest Builders

Dragon-Quest-Builders-Room-Building-Guide-Materials-Bonuses-900x506

What if you took Minecraft and the beloved Dragon Quest universe and mixed them all into one brand new experience? It would probably be the greatest game ever created right? Well, to fans of both games it might be considered that but to anyone the slightest interested in either of the two this would still seem like a perfect fit. Well, Dragon Quest Builders borrows elements from Minecraft and tries to make a new experience out of it and it works, kind of.

Review - WWE 2K17

wwe2k17logo

As a lifelong fan of wrestling dating all the way back to the late 80s when I used to watch wrestling with my grandfather (without my mother knowing it seeing as it was seen upon as real back then) I have tried to withhold my love for the entertainment, but lately my love is slowly dying and the latest wrestling games haven't really done much to keep the spark alive. With 2K taking over control of the latest releases in the now yearly WWE game franchise it has gone from a more arcade entertainment game to a more “realistic” and slow paced package. But even though I have been disappointed year after year since the release of my favourite Here Comes the Pain I haven't stopped hoping this year would be the year they make it all OK again, and this year they do a lot of things right but sadly there are still some leftover jinx from previous games that drags the total experience down a bit for me.

Review - Destiny: Rise of Iron

destinyriseofironlogo

It is time to return to one of the most talked about games in recent history, we are of course talking about Destiny. Now the name of the game will either bring excitement to you as soon as you hear it or it will bring frustration and annoyance, luckily for me I have always enjoyed Destiny and with the release of The Taken King I still feel as the game is completely changed for the better. But here we are, The Rise of Iron is upon us, the latest expansion to Destiny, but is it enough to have you wipe the dust of your copy of the game?

Review - Filthy Lucre

Have you ever dreamt about being a stealthy burglar? And also being the main character in a Guy Ritchie move? Well Filthy Lucre is as close you'll probably ever get without breaking the law or being that weird guy on the film-set that nobody invited..

mountbladelogo

Mount & Blade: Warband is a stand-alone expansion to the previously released Mount & Blade, and it introduces a new faction, increase political options, giving players the ability to start new factions and brings on-board the ability for multiplayer. Now all of this released on the PC back in 2010, so why are we writing a review of the game just now? Well this is the Playstation 4 version of the game which just released. So the question is as always with games like this, how well can you port a PC game to a console?
