Review: Street Fighter X Tekken

TitleWas I the only person who saw this fighting game crossover coming? I mean if we can have Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games then we can have Street Fighter X Tekken. Still, you’ll only be playing five minutes before realising that this Capcom developed game is essentially Street Fighter IV with Tekken characters, and we’ll have to wait until next year to see Namco’s take on the series.

Review: Persona 4 Golden

titlePersona 4 Golden isn’t like other RPG games. In fact, I can’t think of anything that comes close to matching the levels of depth and accessibility that are perfectly blended together in Atlus’ masterpiece. Part highschool murder mystery, and part dungeon crawler, Persona 4 sets you out on an unforgettable adventure where you must stop a serial killer and uncover the truth behind a supernatural television channel.

Review: Armored Core: Verdict Day

titleWhen it comes to niche games, Armored Core is about as specialist as they come. Developer From Software may have found their breakthrough series with Dark Souls, but even after fifteen years of Armored Core, the hardcore mecha simulation genre still has a limited appeal. Verdict Day is not much more than an extension of Armored Core V, and does little that will change anyone’s opinion of the series.

Guide: How to Unlock the True Ending and Epilogue in Persona 4 Golden

title4Unlocking all the story content in Persona 4 Golden can be a minefield. One wrong move and you’ll be missing out on both additional story and gameplay. Problem is that if you start looking this kind of stuff up then it probably won’t be long before you’ve ruined the surprises, and you might still be confused about what exactly you need to do (especially as a lot of guides only cover the unlocks for the PS2 version of Persona 4). So here it is, a spoiler free guide that will make sure you get the most out of Persona 4: Golden on your first playthrough.

Review: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

title3Dead or Alive is just as great now as it was 10 years ago. The formula has always worked, and the series has often been about making minor amendments and enhancements to an already superb fighting game. Dead or Alive 5 added the graphical and presentational values the game was previously lacking, but one year on and this enhanced version of the game is going to feel awfully familiar to anyone who picked up the original last year.

Review: Rayman Legends

titleLooking back it seems almost crazy to think I once expected to pick up Rayman Legends as a launch game for the Nintendo Wii U. In fact this was the deal breaker for me, and I’d already bought the console before it was announced that not only would the game not make its March release date but it was now also coming out on pretty much every other console known to man. Now almost a year after I first played it, Rayman Legends is finally here. Worth the wait? Yeah.

Review: Lost Planet 3

titleI’m not sure exactly why I was excited for Lost Planet 3. Maybe after the fairly disappointing Dead Space 3 I was looking forward to a game that took the whole ‘survival on an ice planet’ concept and explored it to it’s full potential. But after 2 fairly different yet equally mediocre titles, the Lost Planet series returns for the third time (seriously, who other than me is buying these games?) and the result is a strange game that’s certainly different to what came before it but, you guessed it, still mediocre.
