• Review Fallout 4: Vault-Tec Workshop (PS4)

    Digging not-so deep

    Fallout 4's penultimate slice of downloadable content comes in the form of the Vault-Tec Workshop - another settlement-based add-on in which you follow a series of short, simple quests while building your own underground vault. This certainly isn't your typically large expansion - as you can probably tell from the price tag - but...


  • Review Fallout 4: Far Harbor (PS4)

    Fogging hell

    The fog of Far Harbor is to be feared. It inflicts radiation poisoning on those who dare to trek through it, it gives birth to horribly slimy creatures of the deep, and it does an admirable job of obscuring your view of the fiends that stalk the wilderness. The island's residents have a right to fear the mist: it keeps them penned...

  • Review DOOM (PS4)

    Leviticus 26:7

    It wasn't until Wolfenstein: The New Order that we noticed how homogeneous first-person shooters have become over the past decade. The genre's certainly made strides forward, but from a big picture perspective, we've spent the past decade or so taking cover and performing pot-shots to reach our objectives. However, MachineGames'...


  • Review Fallout 4: Automatron (PS4)

    Robots rock

    Fallout 4: Automatron is a logical step for a game that puts so much emphasis on its expansive crafting system. Allowing you to build and customise your own robotic partners, Fallout 4's first add-on has the potential to breath some new life into a dusty old save file, but don't expect its main quest line to keep you occupied for more...





  • Review Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (PlayStation 4)

    Night of the Living Führer

    MachineGames has made a much quicker than expected return to the Wolfenstein series that it helped to re-popularise. After a number of years outside of the limelight, Wolfenstein: The New Order marked an exciting and exceptionally well constructed return to form for the franchise. Gone was the overbearing emphasis on...


  • Review The Evil Within (PlayStation 4)

    Clair de Loony

    The Evil Within knows how to make you sweat. Tango Gameworks’ disgusting debut outing will leave you teetering on the precipice of failure with every twisted encounter, causing you to curse your shortage of resources or your character’s lack of superhuman strength. This is a game that, like its survival horror superiors, isn’t...



  • Review DOOM Classic Complete (PlayStation 3)

    Rock solid

    Boasting the full versions of Ultimate DOOM, DOOM 2: Hell on Earth, and Final DOOM, there's no doubt that DOOM Classic Complete is a comprehensive package for those looking for a nostalgia trip. But is the famous franchise still the daddy of first-person shooters? For better or for worse, the graphics of DOOM Classic Complete are the...


  • Review Dishonored (PlayStation 3)

    Rat race

    Dishonored doesn’t have much time for modern video game conventions. Arkane Studios’ delectable steam-punk romp does away with unnecessary multiplayer components, multi-million dollar set-pieces and tutorial missions that last almost as long as the campaign itself. At times, its complete disregard for expected standards can be to its...


  • Review The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PlayStation 3)

    This sky's the limit

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most involving, engrossing and impressive games of the year, but unfortunate technical inconsistencies mean we can't guarantee whether your experience will be flawless or just plain flawed Skyrim's PS3 technical troubles are well documented, making this an extremely difficult game to...


  • Review RAGE (PlayStation 3)

    Not even slight texture streaming issues can deter from RAGE's technical ambition

    With stunning textures and a consistent 60 frames-per-second, id's latest release is one of the best looking titles available on the PlayStation 3. But for as good as the game looks, the experience is marred by a number of inconsistencies. An offensive save system and...


  • Review Hunted: The Demon's Forge (PlayStation 3)

    Protagonists E'lara and Caddoc are a metaphor for Hunted: The Demon's Forge

    The duo are brash, goofy and amusing, personifying the theme of the game they are featured in. Hunted: The Demon's Forge is not a well devised title — the combat is scrappy, the visuals are hokey, and the voice acting is utterly reprehensible — but for all its faults...


  • Review Fallout: New Vegas (PlayStation 3)

    How do you possibly review a game like Fallout: New Vegas? Isn't it our promise as a publication to see all of a game before we deliver a verdict? In New Vegas' case, that's impossible

    It really is — there is no way we could possibly see everything the game has to offer and still meet deadlines and cover other games. New Vegas is like a vacuum, it...
