Dead or Alive 5: Last Round review

As boxed games go, this one is pushing even Street Fighter’s famed iterations for the ‘least amount of new content per release’ award. But nonetheless, it does represent the first time the Dead or Alive series has appeared on PS4

Review: ‘Evolve’ Works Well With a Coordinated Team, But Replay Value is Limited

As the freshman effort from Turtle Rock Studios, Evolve represents a huge risk, and as a 4v1 asymmetrical co-op game, Evolve carries the hope of a blossoming genre on its back. It’s something new and different, and therefore is going

Game of Thrones: The Lost Lords review (Gamesmaster)

Ok, in case it wasn’t obvious: spoiler warning. If you haven’t played episode one, Iron From Ice, then we’re about to ruin it for you with impunity. And consider yourself similarly warned for the remainder of Telltale’s spin on Game of

Evolve review

What a funny old game Turtle Rock has made. Not Joe Pesci ‘I’m going to shiv you over this plate of linguini’ funny. It’s more ‘unpredictable downright confounding, but against all olds, occasionally brilliant’ funny. There’s the core of a

Total War: Attila review

Attila the Hun was a badass of the highest order. What else can you say about a man who conquered an empire that stretched from Kazakhstan to Germany? Pressure from the Hunnic invasions forced the Franks into France, the Angles
