Review Roundup – Gears of War

I’ve threatened/promised to cover a series of films or games from beginning to end on a number of occasions, but as of now the only complete (so far at least) film series I’ve managed to complete is Jurassic Park/World – but I’ve also recently completed my series of Gears of War game reviews too (aside from Judgment, which isn’t a […]

Review: Gears 5

Though Gears of War 4 wasn’t without issues – as I noted in my review – it was an extremely satisfying game with a story that finally hit the right tone and shook off the Michael Bay-isms that had plagued the series from the beginning. Though the story felt like it ended abruptly, the final scene was a masterclass in […]

Review: Gears of War 4

Note: as with my other Gears of War reviews, I’ve not checked out the vast and popular suite of multiplayer options; my thoughts here are based on the campaign alone. As the first post-Epic Games, post-Xbox 360 and post-original trilogy Gears of War entry, Gears of War 4 had an awful lot to prove. Could it work without Cliffy B’s […]

Review: Gears of War 3

Despite the fact that I played through the original Gears of War back when it was first released in 2006, I was never a fan. The gameplay felt way too linear and predictable, the story was full of unintentionally hilarious moments that were supposed to be badass (not to mention the smirk inducing, accidental homoeroticism), the visuals – while technically […]

Review: Gears of War 2

When I reviewed Gears of War: Ultimate Edition last year, I mentioned that I was going to try and work my way through the Gears series in order, though due to a number of different reasons it’s taken me a lot longer than I anticipated to continue the journey. One of those reasons – which you’ll know if you read […]

Review: Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Version Played: Xbox One (Xbox One X Enhanced) – also available on PS4 and PC Lockdown is a funny thing. I wouldn’t normally have had the time to work my way through a single Tomb Raider game in a reasonable period of time, let alone an entire trilogy. Yet that’s exactly what I’ve been able to do over the last […]

Review: Rise of the Tomb Raider

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on PS4, PC, Mac, Linux and Google Stadia The sequel to 2013’s critically and commercially successful Tomb Raider reboot, Rise of the Tomb Raider continues Lara’s story; her experience of supernatural phenomena in the previous game leads to Lara finally believing in her late father’s research into the secret for immortality – which […]

Early Access Impressions: Exoplanet: First Contact

Available Now on Steam: £14.99 – Developed by: Alersteam – Published by: GrabTheGames The Western – concerned as it often is with taming a new frontier, full of possibilities, danger and excitement – seems to be constantly appealing. Likewise, the Space Western, that shares many of the same tropes, imagery and themes as its earthbound, historically-based forebear, holds a similar […]

Review: Panzer Dragoon: Remake

Available Now on Switch – £22.49 – Developed by: Megapixel Studio SA – Published by: Forever Entertainment The original Panzer Dragoon was a launch title (in the West, at least) for the Saturn, Sega’s ultimately ill-fated 32-bit console. It was lauded upon release for it’s impressive presentation, with some very impressive (for the time) pre-rendered cinematic sequences and fast-paced on-rails […]
