Dishonored 2 Review

Dishonored 2 sees players returning to the world of Dunwall, 15 years after the events of the original game. Little Emily Kaldwin is now grown up, and the Empress of the Isles. Accompanied by her father, the famed Corvo Attano from the first game, things go awry quickly as her evil aunt appears laying claim to the throne. This is where the game splits, and gives players a choice of which protagoni...[Read More]

Steep Review

For those unaware, Steep is an extreme winter sports game in which you wingsuit, snowboard, ski and paraglide across a massive, open-world mountain range vying for high scores, fast times, extreme racing lines and, of course, the craziest GoPro videos. Wingsuiting is by far the best of the four sports on offer.Wingsuiting is by far the best of the four sports on offer. Jumping from a platform, cli...[Read More]

Astro A50 Wireless Xbox One Headset Review

Astro’s A50 headset manages to be simpler and more user-friendly than it’s ever been. This is how every gaming peripheral should be. The newest edition of the Astro A50 (now available at Best Buy and Amazon for $299) is a drastic — and much needed — update over previous versions of the product, and it sets a new bar for gaming headset expectations, both in aesthetics and in tech. The l...[Read More]

Final Fantasy XV Review

There are some things that have just always BEEN, for as long as we remember. Static constants, never changing. Since the dawning of the modern age, since video games first entered the public mind, since time immemorial – Final Fantasy XV has always been in ongoing development. But no longer! FINALLY, and pardon the pun, the game has arrived. Starting its life as a side-title to Final Fantasy XIII...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection Review

The Ezio Collection is an interesting thing, taking three PS3 and Xbox 360 games and offering them back up on PS4 and Xbox One. As you’d probably expect, Revelations comes out looking the best of the bunch, and that’s simply because it’s the newest. Sadly, Assassin’s Creed II — the title I considered the best game in the franchise before replaying it — comes across as dated and clunky. Ubisoft is ...[Read More]

Planet Coaster Review

Back in the days I sunk countless hours into the theme park simulator, and even more at various actual parks in Australia’s Queensland. Needless to say, I have an obsession, and Frontier’s newest scratches that itch. Planet Coaster is everything good about the Roller Coaster Tycoon franchise, improved upon tenfold. Planet Coaster is rocking a cartoony, almost Sims-esque look, which is only reinfor...[Read More]

Watch Dogs 2 Review

Whilst well received amongst critics, the original Watch Dogs was still hampered with poor vehicle handling and a dull protagonist, was visually disappointing when compared to its first trailer, and — in this critic’s opinion — fairly limited hacking abilities that restricted tactical freedom. In true Ubisoft form, the feedback received from fans and critics alike has not fallen on deaf ears. Watc...[Read More]

Driveclub VR Review

On the face of it Driveclub VR should have been the PlayStation VR’s killer app. Driving games naturally work very well with virtual reality, providing a functional cockpit view that makes the game both more realistic and just as easy to play as using a chase cam. They also tend to create less nausea than games with more complex controls, although Driveclub VR does have some issues in that area th...[Read More]

PS4 Pro Console Review

In August, Microsoft kickstarted the second wave of this current console generation, releasing its acclaimed Xbox One S to a largely receptive audience. Now, Sony is returning fire with the PlayStation 4 Pro, an updated version of the standard PS4, which – like Microsoft’s machine – is designed to get the most out of the coming era of 4K televisions. Here’s how the new instalment stacks up. Unlike...[Read More]

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Review

Hate it or love it? This year’s Infinite Warfare is strange. By committing to sci-fi and embracing the larger-than-life lunacy that’s slowly been creeping in, it features the series’ finest campaign this generation; but with uninspired and frankly inferior mechanics, it also dishes up the worst Call of Duty multiplayer on PS4 and Xbox One. It’s a shame so many Call of Duty players don’t full...[Read More]

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Review

Roughly nine years ago Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare was released into the wild. Making the switch from the historical battles of World War II to the military technology and weaponry of present day, the already popular COD series became a juggernaut video game franchise breaking sales records left right and centre. nitially, Call Of Duty 4 was notable as much for the ditching of its Second World Wa...[Read More]

Headmaster PSVR Review

Headmaster simplifies your virtual reality experience to a single mechanic. Forgoing the use of any controllers, it instead uses the motion tracking of the headset to present you wit one simple task: a soccer ball is coming. Headmaster surprisingly presents something of a story for a game that could have gone entirely without one. fairly suspect soccer training camp, Headmaster surprisingly presen...[Read More]
