Railway Empire Review

The tycoon genre is one of the longest-running and most storied in video games. This is particularly true of those concerned with transport, games like Sid Meier’s Railroad Tycoon and Chris Sawyer’s legendary Transport Tycoon having served as entry points into gaming for many people. Fortunately for us modern-day gamers, this genre is still going. The latest major release, which…

Metroid Prime Intro

Metroid Prime is one of my old favorites, a game that I cherish from my childhood. On playing it again, I find it just as good as I recall, one of those few games that holds up to the same feelings the player has when they first get the game. It hasn’t, at least in my opinion, aged at all.…

L.A. Noire Review

With L.A. Noire being rereleased on the PS4, it is time to take another look at the detective game that Rockstar Games created. L.A. Noire was originally released in 2011 and takes place in 1947 Los Angeles. Rockstar boasts that 90% of all buildings in L.A. Noire have been recreated from photographs and through visits to the historic Los Angeles.…

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith Review

While I have heard that video games based on movies often have difficulties, or aren’t made well, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith was certainly an exception. It is sort of a combination beat ‘em up and fighting game- the vast majority of the game is fighting droids and clone troopers as Anakin and Obi-Wan, but the bosses are able…

Cities: Skylines Green Cities Expansion Pack Review

The Cities: Skylines game has always been environmentally promoted, but they’ve taken it to a whole new level with their newest expansion pack. Green Cities takes the ordinary Skylines game and makes it all about cleaning up polluted cities. Like you’ve come to expect from the Skylines expansion packs, the expansion doesn’t offer massive amounts of new content. What it…

FIFA 18 Review

To some, each annual iteration of FIFA is met with a shrug, or a roll of the eyes. To the armies of ardent FIFA fans out there, however – ourselves included – the seemingly incremental changes which are introduced each year are more than enough to get genuinely excited about. On top of that, FIFA has made some more major…

Sly 2 Review

Today I am looking at Sly 2: Band of Thieves. It was one of my very first Playstation 2 games, and on beating it again, it is still fun to me even after all these years. The story picks up after the first game- I had not played it, but the first level does a great job of acquainting the…

Project Cars 2 Review

Project Cars 2 has taken fans by complete storm; people are raving. Unfortunately, part of their shock stems from the disappointment many fans faced from its predecessor. Project Cars left much to be desired in the way of handling, gameplay, and track and car selections. Fans that were beyond eager for the release of the game were disappointed shortly after…

Everybody’s Golf Review

Golf fans, or even just fans of golf games on the PS4, have been pretty hard done by in recent years. It seems a long time since the Tiger Woods series was in its prime, and even with its focus having switched from Woods to Rory McIlroy, the franchise has been in gradual decline for a while now. Aside from…

Digimon: Rumble Arena 2 Review

First impressions are very powerful things. When I first played Digimon Rumble Arena 2, I felt as though it wasn’t a true sequel to the first one, a Digimon game in name only. Of course, I think I was sick at the time and it was a few years ago, so recently I decided to give it another chance. And…

PES 2018 Review

The FIFA vs PES debate is one of the longest-running and most bitterly-fought in video games. Far be it from us to wade in, but it can basically be summarized thus: FIFA always had all the licenses, including the official kits and team names, whilst PES was generally regarded as having superior gameplay. FIFA dramatically improved its gameplay in the…

Sudden Strike 4 Review

For essentially as long as consoles have existed, there has been an ongoing debate as to whether or not strategy games can succeed on them. RTS games, in particular, are seen as more problematic than their turn-based counterparts, due to their high-paced nature and (sometimes) emphasis on micro-management. The crux of the argument, of course, comes down to the controls.…

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Review

There are countless video game titles that try to emulate the utter chaos of a war-zone; the combat, the fire-power, the explosions, the hum of helicopters overhead. Franchises such as Call of Duty and Battlefield do a decent job of capturing some of that atmosphere while providing a solid first-person shooter. But for true life or death realism, Rising Storm 2: Vietnam has got you covered. First…
