Review: Hitman Episode 1

The mere fact the latest entry in the long running stealth series is simply called Hitman suggests that it’s a series that’s very much striving to return to its roots. The franchise seemingly lost its way with Absolution – an ambitious divergence from the staple formula, but one that proved altogether too restrictive for long-time assassin aficionados. Now developer Io Interactive is keen to get … Continue reading Review: Hitman Episode 1

Retro review: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis

Movie tie-in games are normally pretty lacklustre to say the least, Movie spin off games are normally even worse. With this in mind, have I stumbled upon a lost treasure of a good game? Back in the late 80s and early 90s, point-n-click adventure games were all the rave and LucasArts were at the forefront.

The ultra-violent fighting series has been running for around 20 years, which has to mean something. It’s lasted so long because of how different it is compared to other popular fighter series such as Tekken and Street Fighter – the main difference being the intense violence and brutality when it comes to the big finishing moves known as … Continue reading Review: Mortal Kombat X

Review: Wet

Bethesda’s take on a gun-slingin’ shoot’em up mayhem! I never thought the day would come where Bethesda would publish a game not worthy to brand its own name. WET is a severe disappointment, the black sheep of the family compared to iconic Bethesda productions like Elder Scrolls: Skyrim or Fallout 3. As shoot ‘em ups go, it does provide quite a challenge whether the difficulty … Continue reading Review: Wet
