inFAMOUS: First Light, Metro Redux, Madden NFL 15

Going underground

An old industry folktale states that the release of Madden signals the start of the stressful release season for reviewers, and it seems accurate again in this instance. While things have been relatively busy for a few weeks now, we’re mere days away from Destiny at this point, which means that life at Push Square Towers is...

Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed (PlayStation Vita)

Undressed to kill

To describe Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed as a simple action role-playing game would do it a disservice – a bit like describing a vampire as a mere blood gulper. The aforementioned nocturnal beast has gone through several iterations over the years, ranging from fear inducing monsters through to promiscuous teenagers –...

Trials Fusion: Empire of the Sky (PlayStation 4)

Looking up

If there was one thing wrong with Trials Fusion, it was that there wasn’t enough chances to fall tens of thousands of feet to your death. The fans have spoken: sometimes smashing your 120MPH bike into a brick wall just doesn’t feel dangerous enough. Don’t worry, though, as Ubisoft has heard your cries for a little more distance from...

Review: Hotline Miami (PlayStation 4)

Hotline Miami (PlayStation 4)

Miami Visceral

With the stylish murder simulator Hotline Miami first hitting the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in 2013, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the darling indie title has already achieved critical acclaim and a cult following of devout 80s obsessed adrenaline junkies.

How to Get a High Score in inFAMOUS: First Light's Battle Arenas

Play Fetch

One of the most frequent criticisms lofted at the inFAMOUS franchise is its relative lack of replayability, but superhero spin-off inFAMOUS: First Light attempts to solve that problem with a slew of Battle Arenas.

Metro Redux (PlayStation 4)

A whole new world

What do you get when you mix a Ukrainian developer, a best-selling Russian novel, two games, and the PlayStation 4? It’s not a trick question: we’re referring to Metro Redux, of course. 4A Games’ pair of previous generation escapades have been remastered and reworked for Sony’s latest system – and, in many ways, the...

Review: CounterSpy (PlayStation 4)

CounterSpy (PlayStation 4)

From Russia with regret

CounterSpy is a strange beast. Developed by fledgling studio Dynamighty, it's an ambitious game that strives to bridge the gap between 2D and 3D stealth, while also attempting to juggle randomly generated levels. And while it plays host to some truly unique mechanics, and consistently brilliant presentation, it's...

In fact, it’s been out for nearing 12 hours now,...
