Remember Me Review – Trying Not To Forget

By  •  Reviews

Remember Me is a new IP published by Capcom, and is the first game from developer Dontnod Entertainment. While announced mid-2012 to little fanfare, Remember Me slowly built anticipation through its customisable combat system, unique cyberpunk setting and an interesting female protagonist. Sadly, whilst Remember Me is a solid start with some memorable (no pun intended) scenarios, it falls massively short of its potential. Read Review

Persona 4 Arena Review – Fighting Spirit

By  •  Reviews

Persona is a series that has grown ever more popular since its original release. Over the years, each game has seen expansions (Persona 3 FES) and portable iterations (Persona 2: Innocent Sin, Persona 4 Golden), and has become an incredibly popular franchise, with manga, anime and other various merchandising attached to the brand.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Review

By  •  Reviews

Dragon’s Dogma is widely viewed as a flawed gem of a game. It offered breathtaking combat, vast and often tense open-world exploration, excellent character customisation options and the unique Pawn system. It was Capcom doing what Capcom does best: offering a satisfying gaming experience with immense amounts of replay value. Read Review

Bleed Review – Shoot, Jump, Kill

By  •  Reviews

As someone who plays a lot of PC games, I often rely on Steam to provide me with affordable, easily accessible gaming experiences that I can instantly load up any time, alone or with some friends. The problem is, Steam is so prevalent that it’s easy to overlook other digital distribution platforms and websites that are indeed out there, packed with some stellar content of their own.

God of War: Ascension Review – Greek Repeat

By  •  Reviews

God of War has endured not just as a series, but also as a study of Greek tragedy. Upon the original game’s release, Sony struck gold with God of War’s delicious blend of brutal violence draped over an interesting world based on Greek mythology. Read Review

Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires Review – Slash ‘Em All

By  •  Reviews

You have to feel a bit sorry for Omega Force, the guys who make the Warriors series of games and their various spin-offs. As a series, it’s often frowned upon within the circles of the gaming press for having repetitive, simple gameplay that lacks substance. While most of these naysayers certainly aren’t wrong (the series, by nature, has always been relatively straightforward), I find there is much joy to be had from these games. Read Review

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review – Super Sharp

By  •  Reviews

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has been in development for quite some time. So long, in fact, that there was often talks of the game’s cancellation. Luckily, Kojima Productions made the smart decision to hand development over to Platinum Games who have more than proved themselves as competent developers of action games. Read Review

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Review – Gotta Go Fast

By  •  Reviews

The original Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing was a decent kart racer which essentially provided fans with a Sega alternative to Nintendo’s Mario Kart series. However, one of its most common complaints was that it was incredibly similar to Nintendo’s offerings and that it didn’t take enough risks to differentiate itself, with many critics and general internet folk branding the game as a cheap rip-off.
