Get Even review

Get Even may look like an FPS at first glance but this is definitely not what it first seems when you switch it on and begin playing. With the screen play being written by a couple of the guys that have written for mentalist Derren Brown, you’re welcomed into a world of intrigue, tech and more twists and turns than the last 6 months of world politics where you just happen to hold a gun in your hand. You play the role of a guy called Black, a hired gun who, in the opening prologue, infiltrates an abandoned warehouse to...

Prey Review

Prey might initially confuse gamers who remember the original FPS back in the day where, as a Cherokee, you’re abducted on board an alien space ship and can summon your ancestral spirits to help you. It was a lot of fun, then Prey 2 was announced which seemed radically different and was canned, and now there’s another Prey game here in 2017. Well, apart from the fact that you’re on a spaceship, that’s the only similarity here and it’s nothing to do with the original game or its canned sequel. The game starts off really well. You wake up and...

Titanfall 2 review

The original Titanfall blew me away when it was premiered at the Xbox showcase at E3 a couple of years ago. I’d never seen a game play so smooth and have so much variety and action. Calling Titans down from the sky was pretty impressive and it never got old when playing the game at home online. However, there wasn’t actually that much to it and my friends quickly moved onto other games, as did I. This time around Titanfall 2 expands on the original game with loads more ideas for multiplayer and a single player campaign which gamers were...

DOOM 0

DOOM review

Get your ass to Mars – somebody famously once said, can’t remember who. The thing is, why would you want to? It’s red, it’s cold, it has a really bad pollution problem and in this reboot of Doom, it’s full of demons! This version of Doom definitely has the same ethos as id Software’s 1993 original in that it’s absolutely mental and more about arcade action than spooky scares. Doom 3 had us creeping around with a torch, this one has you running about with an arsenal of guns bringing the pain to the spawn of hell with great aplomb....

Overwatch review

I have to admit I didn’t really like the look of Overwatch. The cartoony graphics and the fact it looked very similar to Battleborne which I’ve never thought was going to be any good put me off. Thankfully, my friends and colleagues raved about it so I decided to give it a go and I’m very glad I did. The story – well, there isn’t one really. The game begins with a rousing speech from one of the Overwatch called Winston as he explains that Overwatch were once the purveyors of peace before the public turned on them and they...

Metro Last Light review

So the sun’s finally starting to appear because Summer is almost here so it’s the perfect time to jump into a video game where you’re mostly underground in depressing metro systems because it’s too dangerous to venture above ground thanks to all the irradiated mutants roaming about the place. This is Metro: Last Light and if you fancy a journey into post-apocalyptic Russia then this is the game for you. Set in the same world as Metro 2033, you play as Artyom, a voiceless hero (apart from the narrative story sections in the loading screens) who not only fights for...
