Review: Dead Rising 3: The Last Agent DLC

So here we are. The fourth and final piece of DLC for the Xbox One zombie slaying launch title, Dead Rising 3. The DLC offering didn’t start off very well but has slowly improved over the course of the past few months. Let’s hope the final piece, The Last Agent, continues the upward trend and ends the Season Pass on a relative high. Story The last pair of shoes you’re stepping into this Season Pass is ZDC Agent Brad...

Review: Luftrausers

Thrown into the air, hung up like a metal- tipped paper dart that’s now falling, falling through a sea of flak towards the unforgiving ocean. Then with improbable grace the ship rights itself to boost onwards in the direction of your choosing.  This is the military-map brown world of Luftrausers, the latest fruit borne from Dennaton Games, those inscrutable purveyors of instant playability. It’s actually something of a shock to the...

Review: Titanfall

From the makers of Call of Duty comes Titanfall. Activision’s series revolutionised the FPS genre but after legal issues with their bosses, Jason West and Vince Zampella left for sanctuary with EA to develop a new generation of shooter for a new console generation. That’s no small ask so lets see if Titanfall stands head and shoulders above the competition. Story Titanfall is set in the middle of a war between the...

Review: Dark Souls II

As I look into the haunting black void that forms the gaping head of The Last Giant, the first boss encounter proper of Dark Souls II, the sweat-riddled pressure starts to kick in. Its tree-like colossal body is supported by monstrously long limbs that stride around the small arena I’m using for combat as one of Tolkien’s great Ents might. If the Ents were born in the dreams of a long afflicted opium addict, that is. It strikes slowly...

Review: South Park: The Stick of Truth

After some delays, most notably the transition to Ubisoft following THQ’s (the original publisher) sad demise, Obsidian Entertainment’s South Park: The Stick of Truth has finally arrived. Previous South Park games haven’t been great and although I enjoyed the FPS N64 version, I was too young to to know that it was in fact utter pants. Those were the days where the ability to wee on a snowball and throw it at someone...

Review: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Gloom-tastic gothic-flavoured action time; yup – it’s a new Castlevania. Read on to find out if it’s got any bite. Lords of Shadow 2 (LoS 2) starts with the main vamp himself in siege-defying action. Playing as Dracula (formerly Gabriel Belmont but we’re not going to go into that) you quickly pick up from the combat tutorial the importance of timing your blocks to parry, catching opponents off-guard and leaving them vulnerable...

Review: Thief

Thoughts of Dishonored are no doubt bubbling away when playing Thief. Although Arkane Studio’s game borrowed from the original series, Corvo’s adventure was very much his own. So has this reboot of the game that first nailed stealth stolen back the crown as number one game of the genre? Story Stepping back into the shoes of Garrett, you start off on a typical mission with a companion before things take a turn for the...

Plants vs Goalies – PopCap’s latest takes on Premier League goalkeepers

  The fun and enjoyble Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is out now as you can read in the review. To celebrate the release of the game, two zombies from the game took to the streets of London and caused as much trouble to the residents as they do to Crazy Dave.
