Agent of Mayhem review

Agents of Mayhem may look familiar and don’t worry, you’re not going mad, this is in fact made by Volition, the same guys who made the fun and anarchic Saints Row games and is a spin-off so in that respect, you’ll be in familiar here. Expect over-the-top moments, a host of wise-cracking characters with ‘top bantz’ and lots of things to shoot up and destroy in an open world. The plot here is basically a pastiche on something out of a Bond movie. A bad dude called Doctor Babylon and his Legion are intent on destroying Seoul in South Korea...

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...
