Review: Zombi

The Wii U has had mixed fortunes since its release in November 2012. The console hasn’t shifted many units and third party support (ones worth mentioning at least) is practically non-existent. Yet one of the best games released for the console nearly three years on and one of the most unique titles of the entire generation to date is Ubisoft’s launch title, ZombiU. That’s my humble opinion at least and you can read...

Review: Ant Man

After much stalling and ‘will they wont’ they the film marvel have wanted to make since 2006, before Iron Man, has finally been released. After Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish had written the screenplay Edgar Wright left the process due to creative differences in May 2014 again putting the film in doubt. Peyton Reed was brought in to direct the film in his place. Starring Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant Man), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym/Ant...

Review: Godzilla

Released late last year in Japan, Godzilla has finally come ashore to UK and much like the humans in his films, we would rather he’d slip back under the sea again and never seen of again. Story The back of the box promised me movie-like action and gameplay. I really enjoyed the recent Hollywood movie and was hoping for a combination of that film and the traditional monster scraps in and around Tokyo. I was sorely dissapointed....

Review: Lego Jurassic World

Welcome to Lego Jurassic World! Okay, it’s not as quite snappy as John Hammond’s introduction to the ill-fated theme park in Spielberg’s classic 1993 movie. However the enthusiasm John had then is still applicable to this game. Lego Jurassic World is the latest in a long and seemingly never ending line of Traveller’s Tale Lego movie adaptations. Each are based on the same light puzzle and stud collecting...
