Review: Battleborn

It's difficult to categorise Battleborn easily. Clearly, Gearbox set out to make a shooter with the emphasis on multiplayer enjoyment, be that co-op or the competitive modes, and that's exactly what they've...

Takenoko

Board Game Review: Takenoko

The Emperor of Japan is given the gift of a rare panda by the Chinese Emperor. It doesn't sound like much of an introduction for a fantastically fun board game, but that's...

Review: Coffin Dodgers

What if Mario Kart wasn't Mario characters, but instead old biddies? That's the concept of this fairly distasteful take on the kart racing genre. In fairness, the title sets the scene of...

Review: T.I.M.E Stories: Under the Mask

After A Prophecy of Dragons didn't quite hit the heights of the previous T.I.M.E Stories adventures, you'd be forgiven for thinking the honeymoon period was over, and the initial excitement of the...

Board Game Review: Codenames

Have you ever looked at something which seemed incredibly easy from the outside, and then as soon as you tried it suddenly realised it's harder than balancing the moon on the head of a...

StoriesDestinies

Review: Stories: The Path of Destinies

I wasn't expecting a great deal going into Stories. It's an isometric slash 'em up, it looks a bit cutesy – we've seen many of those games before. I played it for...

Review: Fallout 4 Wasteland Workshop DLC

LoonyQuest

Board Game Review: Loony Quest

The words "family game" might strike fear into the heart of hardcore board game enthusiasts. Those used to dealing with hundreds of cards, miniatures and 40-page rule books might scoff at the...

Dirt Rally

Review: DiRT Rally

Gryphon

Review: Gryphon Knight Epic

Weird name. At first I thought this was another pixelated game clinging onto the olden days, in the style of a classic side scroller. It sort of is. But this isn't a...

Zombicide Black Plague

Board Game Review: Zombicide: Black Plague

Black Plague by Cool Mini or Not follows on from the very successful existing Zombicide games and pushes it back to a more fantasy based mythical setting. While most zombie style games...

Republique

Review: Republique

Originally an iPad game, Republique brings stealth action to home consoles - it's good, but I can't quite shake the feeling that it would be better played on an iPad. Typically my...

Review: T.I.M.E Stories: The Marcy Case

I'll give you an assurance here alongside a small disclaimer: there won't be any spoilers in this review, but there also won't be a huge number of words to read either. Those...

Review: T.I.M.E Stories: A Prophecy of Dragons

As another expansion for the excellent T.I.M.E Stories, A Prophecy of Dragons had all the hallmarks for an excellent adventure. Cast to a distant world, at an unknown time frame with mythical...

Review: UFC 2

Last year, UFC was EA's debut with the licensed MMA franchise and it was a solid effort with room for improvement. UFC 2 follows this up with a very improved effort in...

FarCry Primal

Review: Far Cry Primal

What do you do when every shooter on the market is trying to outdo every other by bringing bigger guns, louder explosions and more heavily armoured enemies  than we've seen before? How...
