Syberia (PlayStation Network)

Syberia (PlayStation Network)

Clickbait

Originally released in 2002, Syberia is one of the most fondly remembered examples of the point and click adventure game genre. With a clever story, and equally ingenious puzzles, it remains as relevant today as the day that it was released. But while the title itself makes a strong case for the revival of this antiquated style of...

BlazeRush (PlayStation Network)

BlazeRush (PlayStation Network)

Blaze of glory

Missiles and bullets flying past cars; monster trucks and flying saucers whizzing down tracks; collisions, crashes, and that all-important final lap overtake – this is BlazeRush, a brand new PlayStation 3 racer from Russian developer Targem Games. This drive-‘em-up offers a short story about underground racing and your...

Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops (PlayStation Network)

Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops (PlayStation Network)

Military mishap

Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops combines the best features and missions from its mobile counterparts, packaging the popular smartphone series’ first two titles together for PlayStation platforms. Does this port march onto Sony’s systems with success, though – or is it an overpriced clone doing the console rounds? The game definitely...

Snark Busters: High Society (PlayStation Network)

Snark Busters: High Society (PlayStation Network)

Who you gonna call?

A game sporting a name like Snark Busters: High Society should be enough to perk the interest of pretty much anyone – you can’t help but let it spark question after question in your mind. What the hell’s a Snark, why does it need busting, and most importantly, will there be top hats? Should all of these questions push your...

Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis (PlayStation Network)

Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis (PlayStation Network)

Heart breaker

This writer’s reputation for revelling in mediocre games is well regarded around the Push Square office, and Deadfall Adventures: Heart of Atlantis is another one of those middling titles that’s ingratiated itself to this strange scribe. An updated version of last year’s Xbox 360 and PC release, this Indiana Jones-inspired romp...

Jet Car Stunts (PlayStation Network)

Jet Car Stunts (PlayStation Network)

Trials and error

Jet Car Stunts’ arrival on the PlayStation 3 and Vita marks the popular mobile game’s first foray onto consoles. Historically, adapted smartphone titles end up feeling a little, well, off when they’re converted to consoles – but there are exceptions. The big question, then, is whether Grip Games has managed to make True...

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 5 - No Going Back (PlayStation Network)

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 5 - No Going Back (PlayStation Network)

The long and winding road

Back in July, when Telltale’s critically acclaimed The Wolf Among Us wrapped up its first season, The Walking Dead was only at its halfway point – but the developer has raced to Season Two’s finale since then. As those of you that are familiar with the series will already know, this second set of episodes puts you...

Might & Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars (PlayStation Network)

Might & Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars (PlayStation Network)

Pay £7.99 for tagline

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Might & Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars is some kind of trading card video game, but that’s short-sighted. No, it’s an investment opportunity of a lifetime – a chance to hand out huge amounts of money in return for digital versions of cards that your other half probably...

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 4 - Amid the Ruins (PlayStation Network)

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 4 - Amid the Ruins (PlayStation Network)

The penultimate peril

The next to last episode of the second season of Telltale Games’ episodic The Walking Dead adaptation is an unsurprisingly gripping experience. Following in the footsteps of arguably the best instalment that Telltale Games has released to date, the fourth entry, Amid the Ruins, has an awful lot to live up to. And live up to...

Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death (PlayStation Network)

Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death (PlayStation Network)

Love island

What’s a girl to do? Her man’s taking his sweet time proposing to her, and she’s getting bored of waiting for him. You could probably think of any number of sensible courses of action in this situation, none of which involve picking up a book on witchcraft so that you can perform a love spell. Still, in PlayStation 3 puzzler Sacra...

Constant C (PlayStation Network)

Constant C (PlayStation Network)

Inconsistent C

Constant C is a new puzzle platformer from International Games System. In it, you control a robot that awakes from a slumber of sorts on a space station where time has seemingly stopped. What’s the cause of this? How do you fix it? Through the course of the game, you acquire abilities that allow you to manipulate gravity in order to...

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 - Cry Wolf (PlayStation Network)

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 - Cry Wolf (PlayStation Network)

Every dog has its day

So, this is it. We’ve finally made it to the end of protagonist Bigby Wolf’s investigation into the murder of a Fabletown resident that began some eight months ago. It’s been one hell of a journey, with plot twists, surprising levels of violence, and acts so unspeakable that Walt Disney would turn in his grave if he knew...

Battle Princess of Arcadias (PlayStation Network)

Battle Princess of Arcadias (PlayStation Network)

Such a peach

Being a princess is overrated. You’ll soon wear out your waving hand, you have to speak to poor people (which even poor people hate doing), and the occasional gifted helicopter from the in-laws does little to take the edge off. Being a battle princess, alternatively, is a completely different affair. It means you get to go out and hit...

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4 - In Sheep's Clothing (PlayStation Network)

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4 - In Sheep's Clothing (PlayStation Network)

A sheep in wolf's clothing

We’re just one episode shy of wrapping up the debut season of Telltale Games’ episodic Fables adaptation, and while we look to the final instalment to tie up loose ends and answer burning questions, it’s equally important that the penultimate chapter takes the time to set it up properly – and that it seemingly...

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 3 - In Harm's Way (PlayStation Network)

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 3 - In Harm's Way (PlayStation Network)

Deeper down the rabbit hole

When writing reviews, it’s always important to avoid spoilers, that way you don’t ruin the experience for future players. This is a particular conundrum that we face each time that Telltale Games releases new episodic content, as each instalment builds upon the last, making our lives a misery as we attempt to dance...

SoulCalibur: Lost Swords (PlayStation Network)

SoulCalibur: Lost Swords (PlayStation Network)

En garbage

Forget about missing blades, we suspect that the folks at Bandai Namco may have misplaced their minds while developing SoulCalibur: Lost Swords. This wretched free-to-play fighter serves up the gaming equivalent of seppuku, except the ancient Japanese suicidal rite isn’t riddled with obnoxious loading times, and thus is preferable to...

Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels (PlayStation Network)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels (PlayStation Network)

Pick a card

Trading card games are everywhere these days, mostly thanks to smartphones and the free-to-play model. Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels looks to present the genre in a more traditional way. With thousands upon thousands of cards available to collect and utilise in battle, as well as both single player and online modes, it’d be easy to spend...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (PlayStation Network)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (PlayStation Network)

Half shelled

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows – a game developed by Red Fly Studios and published by Activision – released in August last year on both Steam and the Xbox 360 to a largely atrocious reception. With the game taking around eight months to hit the PlayStation 3, then, one would expect (or at least hope) that the delay...
