Warlander – PC Review

I learnt about Warlander’s existence back in mid-2019 while it was still being developed as an action-RPG. As a fan of the Fable series, I was immediately hooked by Warlander’s narrative, visual style and fantasy setting, all of which suggested the game had decent potential. Unfortunately, the developers – Clock Drive Games – announced in September they needed to make some changes. Continue reading Warlander – PC Review

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot PC Review

It seems that gamers will never give Dragon Ball Z a chance to quit. Every time this 1989 anime looks ready for a peaceful retirement, some studio drags it back into service sending 90’s kids spiraling into nostalgia, while a whole new generation falls in love with the show. Fighting games in particular have turned Akira Toriyama’s masterpiece into a magic goose with an infinite supply of golden eggs. Continue reading Dragon Ball Z Kakarot PC Review

Darksiders Genesis PC Review

Every so often a game comes along that completely redefines the possibilities of its class. Sometimes it just finds a highly innovative use for a simple mechanic, and in other cases invents a new form of gameplay altogether. Either way, players are left floored as they get to explore a whole new frontier of what their favorite genre can do. Well, nothing in the Darksiders series has ever been that game. Continue reading Darksiders Genesis PC Review

Shenmue III – PC Review

The height of the console wars between Sony, Nintendo and Sega was undoubtedly a trial by fire for developer and publisher alike. These companies had invested huge sums towards the promotion of their respective platforms, and studios hired the most creative minds to develop that one game that would elevate them above their competitors. It is here that Sega turned to Yu Suzuki. Continue reading Shenmue III – PC Review

Need For Speed Heat PC Review

I was one of the idiots that actually bought Need for Speed 2015. It was during the first post-release sale, and many reviews seemed happy with it. Meanwhile, I had no idea that I was willingly forking over my hard-earned cash for a total, irrecoverable train wreck congealed into a game. Turns out it was not just the worst racing game I ever played: it was perhaps one of the worst games I owned. Continue reading Need For Speed Heat PC Review

Spyro: Reignited Trilogy – PC Review

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a remake of the three original fun-loving, cartoon-like Spyro games, originally created by Insomniac Games in 1998, 1999, and 2000 for the PlayStation. However, before discussing this modern ‘reignited’ collection, I need to go back to the late 1990s and share with you my personal history with Spyro. Continue reading Spyro: Reignited Trilogy – PC Review

The Outer Worlds – Review

With a resumé that includes South Park: The Stick of Truth and, of course, Fallout: New Vegas, do I really have to introduce Obsidian Entertainment? Their unapologetically wacky and satirical developmental formula has cemented several memorable titles into our libraries, and with The Outer World’s they finally get to unleash their unique style on the wild frontiers of space colonisation. Continue reading The Outer Worlds – Review

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Single-Player Campaign Review

There have been sixteen years since I first played the original Call of Duty. While the franchise had its ups and downs, it is still going strong after all those years. For example, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s trailer is one of the most downvoted videos in its entire history. On the other hand, the original Modern Warfare, is one of the most beloved first-person shooters ever made.

GRID – Review

Picture this: It is January 2009, and there’s me in a sweltering office playing a game I just picked up with some Christmas cash. I had seen a friend play this the year before, but the highly-detailed yet almost creamy graphics still captivate me as I finally fire it up on my own PC. That game was Racedriver: GRID, and I was coming up fast to my first turn gunning a sexy black Dodge Viper. Continue reading GRID – Review

Code Vein – Review

If you are reading this, chances are that you have played Dark Souls, or at least know about FromSoftware’s legendary series. How could you not, really? Throughout three incarnations Dark Souls produced an experience so revolutionary that it carved out an entire sub-genre of action RPG’s. Nothing says you’ve shaken things up like having a suffix attached to your game’s name: Souls-like. Continue reading Code Vein – Review
