NES Remix 2 review

There’s a good chance that many Wii U owners are still playing and enjoying the original NES Remix, which was only released at the end of 2013 – but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo from releasing NES Remix 2, which takes the same basic format, but uses an arguably more appealing selection of 8-bit classics as its foundation. Pull on that Super Mario sweater and affix a fake moustache, because …

Kinect Sports Rivals review

Microsoft’s dream of a controllerless interface hasn’t quite come to pass, with its Kinect peripheral enjoying limited success on the Xbox 360. However, the company clearly has supreme confidence in Kinect 2.0, which is bundled with every single Xbox One sold. Kinect Sports Rivals is surely the most high-profile release to date, but does it manage to overcome the issues which have blighted …

inFAMOUS: Second Son review

Sucker Punch’s inFAMOUS series has enjoyed two critically successful outings on the PlayStation 3, but its the PlayStation 4 sequel which perhaps has the most hype to live up to. Sony’s console is now entering a difficult stage of its early life and needs all of the top-notch exclusives it can get. Does this third instalment live up the standard set by its predecessors, and does new protagonist…

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Review

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is the prologue to the true fifth outing, The Phantom Pain. A taster of what is to come as well as a narrative set-up for what will surely be a twisting and convoluted storyline, this short but sweet adventure is being sold at retail as a mid-range release rather than a demo. Is it worth the cash, or has creator Hideo Kojima abused the goodwill of fans of …

Yoshi's New Island review

As the Year of Luigi comes to a close, it would appear that Nintendo is shifting its attention to another of its green mascots: Yoshi. The dino-like creature is set to star in a Wii U adventure later this year, but first up is Yoshi’s New Island, a 3DS title which aims to capture the same magic of the SNES classic Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island. Does it succeed, or are some things bet…

Titanfall review

The Xbox One’s killer title has arrived. Microsoft’s betting big with Titanfall, the debut online-mech shooter from Respawn Entertainment, a studio formed by the former head honchos of Call of Duty-maker Infinity Ward, and it’s one of the first major AAA titles to hit the Xbox One this year. With plenty of shooting pedigree under the studio’s belt and a whole new spin on things thanks to th…

Dark Souls 2 review

From Software’s famously difficult Dark Souls must rank as one of the most unlikely video game successes in recent memory, and now the series is back with its sequel, Dark Souls 2. The series is known for being unashamedly niche and unforgiving, and its obtuse nature should have put all but the most dedicated players off, but instead it found a massive and very receptive audience all over t…

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 review

The first Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was something of a revelation, and now we’re here with its sequel, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. It came at a point when the series was struggling commercially, and was the first time that a western developer had been entrusted with this most esteemed of Japanese franchises. The gamble paid off, however, as it went on to become the best-selling entry…
