Review: Watch Dogs: Bad Blood (PlayStation 4)

Watch Dogs: Bad Blood (PlayStation 4)

Dreadlock screen

Watch Dogs was a solid sandbox title that was let down by a shallow story and a weak cast of characters, and even though it featured a number of well designed missions and some great combat, a severe lack of personality kept proceedings from being truly memorable. Flash forward, and we have the game's first expansion: Bad Blood...

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments (PlayStation 4)

Baker treat

Sherlock Holmes is the ultimate alpha male.

Is Pretty PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 a Victorian Victory?

Antique action

Insomniac Games may have taken a half-step outside of the House of PlayStation, but Sony may have already found the studio’s replacement in Ready at Dawn. Much of the conversation surrounding Victorian adventure The Order: 1886 has centred on its storyline and steampunk art style, but after a short hands-on demo, we came away more...

First Impressions: What New Tricks does Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Learn on PS4?

What New Tricks does Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Learn on PS4?

Yes Wei

Many would argue that the original Sleeping Dogs was the overlooked sandbox gem of the last generation. The title's setting of Hong Kong had a quirky feel to it, and gameplay mixed exploration, kung-fu combat, and a surprisingly enjoyable story. It certainly wasn't as polished or as vast in scope as something like Grand Theft Auto V, but...

PS4 Teen Horror Until Dawn Is So Bad That It's Scarily Good

#Dead

David Cage makes games that aren’t supposed to be funny, but sometimes wander into the realm of comedy anyway. The Parisian auteur, who’s perhaps best known for PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavy Rain, tends to discuss Quantic Dream’s ‘emotional’ output in a very self-serious manner – and yet, scenes such as ‘Jason, Jason’ often...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Kicks Destiny Off the Top

That didn’t last long, did it? To be fair, a quick glance at the release calendar would have told you that Destiny wouldn’t be dominating the UK sales charts forever – especially with FIFA 15 looming on the horizon. And, unsurprisingly, it’s the soccer simulation that’s knocked Bungie’s first-person shooter off the top,...
