Power Is Everything in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4

Thank goodness for that

Considering it’s arguably the biggest video game franchise on the planet, it’s been a bit of a shame to see Call of Duty slip behind its peers – both in terms of stale gameplay, and practically rancid visuals.

A set forged in the stars

With the release of Destiny now long gone, you’ve probably already purchased a vanilla version of the first-person shooter. As such, you may be curious what the top-tier special edition looks like.

Would You Play Destiny in Third-Person?

Out-of-body experience

There's absolutely no doubt that Destiny is an incredibly smooth and polished first-person shooter: its controls are silky, its aiming is snappy and fast, and its gunplay in general is immensely satisfying.

Not so weary Traveller

Some less than stellar reviews haven’t prevented Destiny from maintaining its place atop the UK sales charts, with the intergalactic PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 adventure holding strong – despite numbers dropping by 78 per cent since its record breaking debut.

Strong showing from Activision's new super series

It would have been a bigger surprise this week if Destiny had failed to land in the top spot, but, as expected, it’s rocketed straight to the summit. The next big game from Bungie sold best on the PlayStation 4, and also smashed new intellectual property records in the process. As a result,...
