Review: Grand Theft Auto V
When Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was released on the PlayStation 2 back in 2004 it was certainly the biggest GTA ever made. But such a game taught us that bigger is not always better, and it would appear that Rockstar North has approached the challenge of every subsequent GTA with caution. It’s taken them five years to craft the sequel to one of the most iconic and well loved games of the generation, but is Grand Theft Auto V enough to satisfy those use to the ridiculously high standard set by the series? Honestly? Yeah.
Review: Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate
Dead 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
Looking 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
I’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.
