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.

inFAMOUS: First Light (PlayStation 4)

Fetching

The problem with inFAMOUS: Second Son was that it ended too quickly: Sucker Punch’s supercharged pseudo sequel was over in a flash, leaving many of its fans wanting more. inFAMOUS: First Light attempts to solve that problem, recharging with a new playable character, storyline, and some fresh powers – but does it burn brightly, or...

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?

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.
