Vostok Inc. (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon July 30, 2017
When you first sit down with Vostok Inc, your first thought is likely to be one of confusion. After all, twin stick shooters tend to fall into certain categories. They are either action-orientated fast-paced affairs where you have to try and kill enemies to get the best high score or tactical experiences that see you […]

Yooka-Laylee (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon April 12, 2017
As you might have guessed from its name, Yooka-Laylee is a tribute to the retro 3D platformers that were first introduced to the world two decades ago, most notably taking inspiration from Rare’s Banjo-Kazooie. It has been crafted by Playtonic Games, made up of several former Rare staffers, and was funded due to a highly […]

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Review (Wii U)

by Eileen Cruzon April 4, 2017
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is incredibly well done. The graphics are awe-inspiring and the gameplay offers a solid and reliable experience. Breath of the Wild doesn’t give you enough opportunities to grow emotionally attached to the characters vital to story progression, but it does do a fantastic job of otherwise achieving the illusion that […]

And whenever they do address a mistake and correct it, they usually make several new ones in […]

Review: Walking Dead – Episodes 1 & 2

by Eileen Cruzon January 8, 2013
Most of the game takes the form of dialogue, and this thankfully is well handled. This is a combination of regular questions and answers passed between you and the many characters you come across, and timed events and answers, all of which have a profound impact on the story. Most of the time this impact is on the way characters interact with you, and it’s this impact that redeems The Walking Dead’s lack of “gameness”.
