Lego City Undercover The Chase Begins review

LEGO City Undercover – The Chase Begins is an interesting prospect because at first glance you may think it’s the same game as the Lego City Undercover Wii U version but it actually presents a slightly different version of the game with different missions. Think of it like a remixed version of the game instead. In similar vein to the Wii U game, u get to explore the city as Officer Chase McCain in a sandbox environment where you’re led where to go with objective markers but are also free to roam and explore for yourself to find tonnes of...

Crysis 3 review

I recently replayed Crysis 2 before playing Crysis 3 and I’m actually also playing through the original Crysis on the PC with everything turned up full. It actually still stands up today even though it’s 7 years old! Crysis 3 lets you play as Prophet for the first time after he literally rose from the ashes at the end of Crysis 2. The game begins with his old squad mate Michael ‘Psycho’ Sykes breaking him out of his prison to get help with putting an end to the Cell Corporation enslaving humans after they can’t afford their energy, but it...

LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes review

LEGO Batman 2 is an original story from the Traveller’s Tales team, who brought you all the other LEGO games you’re probably all familiar with. In them you smash stuff to bits and beat up baddies to collect studs which earn you more unlocks and collectibles. It’s incredibly addictive, especially when played how it’s meant to played in co-op mode and funny too thanks to parodies on well-loved franchises. LEGO Batman 2 tries to break away from this mould slightly but ultimately it just succeeds in diluting an already successful formula. So what’s going on? Well this time Lex Luthor has...

InFamous 2 review

Although the first Infamous game was admittedly very good, I never finished it because along came Prototype about a week later and completely took me away from it. Now electric guy Cole is back and Alex Mercer isn’t here in time to distract me. If you liked the first game you’ll definitely get off on InFamous 2 because it’s basically exactly the same game, only with a lick of paint and improved powers. The game begins with Cole battling a gigantic beast, losing and then fleeing to the South to recharge his batteries and prepare for another big battle as the...

LA Noire review

You’ve probably seen the trailers for L.A. Noire which show how they did the facial capture which gives the most lifelike characters ever seen in a game. Well, now the game’s out and I’ve finally got to see if it just looks good or plays good as well. The verdict is the gameplay is simple but it does grab you and not let you go as you attempt to solve a variety of homicides that of are of course linked to a greater story ark. You play the game as Cole Phelps, (the very definition of good cop) as you...

Red Dead Redemption 3

Red Dead Redemption review

It’s easy to just label Red Dead Redemption as GTA 4 on horseback but actually it’s more than that and thankfully presents an original concept in an age where the market’s full of shooters, racing games and family titles. So, in this Western you play as John Marston, a man who’s trying to be good after leaving a gang of naughty people. He’s come to the Wild West to confront the gang leader and stop him before he goes after John’s wife and kids. After being shot at the start of the game he’s taken in by some of the...
