F1 2014 Review – Same car, different tyres

maxresdefault

You should be used to seeing another F1 game hitting store shelves in October. Since its first release in 2011, Codemasters has been releasing one of these every year without fault. F1 2011 was the first good Formula 1 game in a long time, F1 2012 improved on that formula (pun not intended) and added a lot of [&hellip Read more

Project CARS Hands-On

Project-Cars-2

Project CARS has been a major talking point of the racing game genre for quite some time. Crowdfunded thanks to a very dedicated racing community, Project Cars is looking to battle head to head against established racing simulations such as Forza and Gran Turismo and even promising indie newcomers such as Assetto Corsa. We were able to go hands on [&hellip Read more

F1 2014 Hands-On Preview

F1_2014-07-11 09-58-41-45_screen_15_1406716979

Another F1 Season, another F1 game by Codemasters. Much like FIFA, Madden and Call of Duty, we’ve come to expect a yearly release of the racer but, as we all know, it becomes increasingly difficult to improve from the previous iteration in such a short period of time. The first F1 game was great, even if it lacked [&hellip Read more

Styx: Master of Shadows Review – Hit or Miss?

Styx-Master-of-Shadow-Logo

Styx: Master of Shadows has an appropriate name, mostly because this game completely caught me by surprise. I did hear the name before, maybe I saw a gameplay video or two around the internet, but I completely forgot this game was coming out until I received my review copy. The big question is, should Styx have kept [&hellip Read more

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 Hands-On

pga2-hero (1)

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 is a game which completely slipped under my radar, it was announced earlier this year with little fanfare and quietly released on Friday, October 3rd. Usually, games which release so quietly tend to be of low quality, but this new Pac-Man platformer was actually a pleasant surprise.   As I [&hellip Read more

Age of Wonders III: Golden Realms Review

maxresdefault

We liked Age of Wonders III quite a bit; in fact, you can read what we thought of the base game here. Golden Realms, however, is the first expansion to hit Triumph‘s turn-based strategy game and, alongside the DLC, a free patch was also released which improves the AI and tackles some community-requested features, which makes [&hellip Read more

Wasteland 2 Review – Classics Never Die

VtLU8f5

After 26 years, a very successful Kickstarter campaign which raised nearly $3 Million and a few delays here and there, the sequel to Wasteland, the beloved 1988 classic, is finally upon us. Wasteland 2, in fact, is very proud of its origin and tries to incorporate all the elements which made the RPGs of the late 80s [&hellip Read more

Minimum Review – Just a Skeleton?

MinGame-Win32-F 2014-09-17 16-15-17-63

If there is one word I’m tired of hearing, it’s MOBA. Many games are trying to emulate the success of games such as League of Legends and Dota 2, and it seems like every other week, a new MOBA title is announced which is looking to cash in on the e-sports and competitive gaming scene. I can name [&hellip Read more

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms Preview

Heretic-Kingdoms-Shadows-Logo

I still don’t know exactly what to think about Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms; on one hand, it offers an interesting twist to the classic dungeon-crawler/ARPG genre but, on the other, it still manages to feel painfully generic and boring. It’s a weird contrast, Shadows goes from feeling clever and engaging to feeling tired and tedious in the [&hellip Read more

Wildstar Review – One Way Trip To Nexus

wildstar_background_wallpaper-HD

World of Warcraft has been the undisputed king of the MMO genre for what seems like an eternity: Blizzard’s behemoth will be ten years old later this year, in fact. Many big games with huge IPs behind them have tried and failed to take the throne for themselves. From Warhammer to Star Wars, nothing seems to [&hellip Read more
