Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden Review

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is my favorite in the franchise even if they didn’t do this one. Being a fighting game it can provide countless hours of game play for 3ds users or Dragon Ball fans fighting with their friends locally. However Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is a step in the right direction, but it still isn’t the 2D fighting game that the series deserves. Developed by Arc System W...

Star Wars Battlefront Review

There I am, crouched in deep forestry on the planet Endor, blaster fire everywhere I look. In the distance I can see my Rebel comrades toe to toe with the Imperial scum. I pick a few off to provide assistance. Then BOOM! I am dead! No warning. I didn’t even see it coming. Then I’m shown it was Darth Vader with his crimson light saber. Moments like these make the super battles of 60 players even mo...

Razer Diamondback and Blackwidow Tournament Edition Chroma Review

Razer is formidable in the world of gaming. This small team has grew into something of a phenomenon, more so with PC gamers as their range of gaming mice, keyboards and headsets are extensive. I had the pleasure to try out and give my opinion on Razer’s Diamondback gaming mouse and the Blackwidow Tournament Edition keyboard. Quite simply a match made in PC gaming heaven. Granted Razer produc...

Jump To Gamer Retro Rag Review – Official UK PlayStation Magazine: Issue #39

  Jump To Gamer is a way for me to get away from just looking solely at individual games and look more at wider themes and issues. Back before the true rise of the internet, a lot of people still got most of their news from actual paper publications. The amount of magazines devoted to gaming was much larger back in the 90’s than it is now. We’re living in a digital age and the paper press is ...

Fallout 4 Review

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remains my favorite game of all time. It was Bethesda at their very best. It had a massive world, loads to do and see and lots to find and use. So too had Fallout 3 and New Vegas, although they didn’t capture me like Skyrim did, they were phenomenal games. Well, a lot of hype has been raised over the release of the fourth installment of the Fallout series and I co...

Rise of the Tomb Raider Review

There is no mistaking that Crystal Dynamics has took its first Lara Croft escapade and capitalized on it in almost every way creating a true classic whilst at the same time launching Lara up there with the greatest gaming protagonist of our time. Rise of the Tomb Raider shows us a fully established Lara Croft. No longer is she a fresh faced survivalist. She is battle hardened. No longer a stranger...

Need For Speed Review

After a whopping 21 games and a surprisingly successful movie, the Need For Speed franchise returns in an attempt to reboot the series and bring it back to its underground roots. Developers Ghost decided that the long running successful franchise needed renewing and so we have this simply titled Need For Speed. What do you need for a reboot? Better graphics? A bigger world with more roads? A decen...

Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition Review

Ultimate, definitive, “deathinitive”, whatever you want to call it, remasters are the newest craze. Developers ramping up games of past trying their best to make them worthy of today’s competition is commonplace. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Only truly great games seem to qualify for this overhaul treatment, one of which is Vigil Games’ Darksiders 2. Dark...

H1Z1 Alpha Review – Is it worth buying into?

H1Z1 is the latest zombie survival game to hit PC gamers, having launched on Steam’s Early Access back in January 2015, but is it worth your time at this alpha stage, and importantly, your money? Developed by Sony Online Entertainment, although now going by the name of Daybreak Game Company (that’s a story for another day), H1Z1 had all the hype of being the next big thing and certainl...

Alien: Isolation Review

The survival horror genre has fallen by the wayside over the past generation. Horror games have simply devolved into shooters with less light sources and grotesque enemies, but that is not what constitutes a scary game. Last gen’s attempts at horror were pitiful. From Dead Space‘s play on power fantasy with its overpowered starter weapon to F.E.A.R.‘s poorly telegraphed “ps...

Infamous First Light: Review

The main purpose of this standalone expansion is to provide a background to the character of Fetch, a favourite of many, including myself, from Second Son. The story on offer here achieves that and it surprised me with plenty of twists and turns with a few big moments. It sets up Fetch’s position in Second Son brilliantly and is interesting and engaging for its duration. The pacing is great ...

SteamWorld Dig Review

The wild west, an old mine, and a hardy robot with a lot of heart and soul. This is SteamWorld Dig.
