The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – Review

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – Review

“Finally!” we cry, “It’s here!”. Elder Scrolls Online, a game that many of us console-based fantasy RPG lovers have been yearning for since it’s launch on the PC way back in April, 2014. For the purpose of pleasing you, our target audience, the charming and delightful Xbox community, I’ll be writing this review as if it hadn’t already been out for a ...[Read More]

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Review

Lifeless Planet – Review

Lifeless Planet – Review

As the name suggests; Lifeless Planet, is set on a desolate, isolated and extremely lonely rock in the outer borders of space. Developed by the team at Stage 2 Studios, Lifeless Planet takes the simplistic idea of being stranded and begins to play mind games with you. You wake in the aftermath of an unsuccessful scouting mission as a scientist turned astronaut on what appears to be the hot, barren...[Read More]

The Swapper – Review

The Swapper – Review

Developed by Finnish studio, Facepalm Games The Swapper is a smart but patronizingly simple side-scrolling puzzle game. The Swapper pits you, the gamer, as a generic spaceman that crash lands on a mysterious but seemingly populated planet. The plot, if you read into it is actually quite menacing. The planet is inhabited by hordes of murderous telepathic rocks. Yup, rocks. Erm… I’m not ...[Read More]

Aaru’s Awakening – Review

Aaru’s Awakening – Review

If I had to summarise Aaru’s Awakening in one word it would be “beautiful”. Not just aesthetically, but emotionally as well. The storyline, the graphics, the style and the characters are just so well thought and well designed that you’ll instantly be pulled into the world and gripped within moments. From the get go, the narration of an endless battle between four gods; Dawn...[Read More]

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 – Review

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 – Review

What started as a brilliant way to distract yourself from either your homework, your boss, your partner, awkward arguments with the in-laws, the smelly old cat-lady at the bus stop and much, much, much more, in 2011 came to our beloved Xbox 360s as Fruit Ninja Kinect. Following it’s great success and the fan base of the well loved, aussies Halfbrick Studios, the guys behind possibly the best...[Read More]

Project Root – Review

Project Root – Review

“Shmup”, I quiver when ever I hear the word. More commonly known as a “shoot ‘em up”, Project Root is that latest title from OPQAM. Never heard of them? Nah, neither had I. With less than 350 likes on their Facebook page, OPQAM could quite possibly be the smallest developer we’ve ever worked with. So what is Project Root? Yes, it’s a shoot ‘em up, bu...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China – Review

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China – Review

As if there wasn’t already enough Assassin’s Creed titles available, here comes yet another spin off. But good news, it’s awesome! Out of the five side-scrollers (yes, side-scrollers!) I’ve been playing on Xbox this week, this has easily been the best one. Don the life of Shao Jun, the female assassin in the year of 1526, China. Shao Jun travels across the country during th...[Read More]

Mortal Kombat X – Review

Mortal Kombat X – Review

From the mind of Ed Moon and his brilliant team at NetherRealm Studios, comes the highly anticipated tenth instalment on what we feel is one of the best fighting games in history. “FINISH HIM!” Technically speaking MK X is the second title of the series; MK9 was a reboot of the series. I have been anticipating this game for many years. However over the last year or so I’ve been like a ...[Read More]

Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones – Review

Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones – Review

Upon firing up Stealth Inc. 2, the sequel to Curve Digital’s 2011 title, Stealth Bastard Deluxe: Tactical Espionage Arsehole (great name, I know!) I wasn’t particularly sure what I’d be greeted with. Surprisingly, this quaint little title had me captured within minutes. Set in an Aperture Science-esque laboratory, you play as a newly created clone. Longing for answers and the rea...[Read More]

Shovel Knight – Review

Shovel Knight – Review

It’s highly-coloured promotional posters and large roster of well-designed and varied characters, all aided Shovel Knight in becoming a game I was reasonably interested in. That’s before I started playing it and realised that it was all but a lie. Upon firing up Shovel Knight, you’re introduced with a very dated and blocky 8-bit design. I’m all for a retro feel game but I f...[Read More]

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty – Review

A remake of the massively popular 1997 title, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, New ‘n’ Tasty pits players as everyone’s favourite Mudokon, Abe as he fights to escape the prison-like meat factory, RuptureFarms, where he stumbles across a gruesome and terrifying plot.
