Sniper, no sniping
Rebellion’s no stranger to virtual reality. Having remade Atari's classic Battlezone as a PSVR launch title and publishing Arca's Path two years later, it’s teamed up with Just Add Water for Sniper Elite VR. While PlayStation owners haven’t lacked for Sniper Elite entries — we’ve previously seen
Fast and Führious

For the best part of the PlayStation 4 generation, UK-based studio Rebellion has been improving, tweaking, and fine-tuning its co-operative offering...

Not so ghillied up
Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is the re-release of a PS3 game that was already a remake of the original title in the series. It’s a confusing timeline to say the least, but what baffles us even more is the sheer existence of this PS4 version in the first place. Subsequent sequels, Sniper Elite III and Sniper Elite 4, outmatch the...
2018 has been a stellar year for PlayStation VR. After Sprint Vector kicked things off with a speedy locomotive system that had everyone at Push Square Towers working up a sweat, we’ve been treated to the likes of cutesy platformer Moss, horror fanatics were swept away with The Persistence, and those looking for a
Hunting horrifying hordes
As the British Empire’s occult hit squad, the Strange Brigade are dispatched whenever the rampant looting of other cultures leads to supernatural forces being unleashed on the world. While many would argue this may just be karma paying the Brits back for years of colonial oppression, it’s probably best to try and avoid...
PS2 curio Rogue Trooper is an unlikely candidate for the remaster treatment. Taken from the pages of eclectic British comic 2000AD, Sniper Elite developer Rebellion had a decent stab at trying something new with the always swamped third-person shooter genre. Receiving positive reviews, it’s since faded into obscurity. Hopefully,...
Just a little off the top
Zombies have been the perennial whipping boys of the shooter genre for a while now, and it was inevitable that at some point they'd get mashed up with Nazis – second in the cannon fodder league table – to create the ultimate guilt-free targets to blast away at. While Zombie Army Trilogy on the PlayStation 4 is far from...
It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the PlayStation 4. In Sniper Elite III, rather than making you think about the needless loss of life, this latest instalment in the distance shooter series asks that you revel in...
Not a bad shot
Sniper Elite V2 is a pretty single-minded game, when all’s said and done. The Rebellion-developed remake has grand plans of being a stealth action title with tactical frills, but in reality it’s much more content with being a profoundly simplistic shooter. With a limited arsenal and even fewer gameplay distractions, the success of...
Aliens vs Predator is an exciting prospect
It sees original UK-based developers Rebellion return to the franchise that made them known in the first-place. Aliens vs Predator was a massive hit when it launched on the Atari Jaguar - and later the PC - in the mid-late 1990's. With three completely separate single-player campaigns, Aliens vs Predator...
