  • Fallout 4 review

    A vast and frequently brilliant return to Bethesda's atomic sandbox, but constant technical issues are a frustration.

  • Warhammer: The End Times - Vermintide review

    A thrilling twist on Left 4 Dead's co-operative action, but minor balancing issues can make it hard to warm to at first.

  • Overlord: Fellowship of Evil review

    Bland at best, broken at worst, this shallow reinvention of the cult strategy puzzler is hell for both fans and newcomers.

  • Broforce review

    A bombastically endearing tribute to classic action movie excess that is occasionally too chaotic for its own good.

  • Sublevel Zero review

    A welcome revival for a much missed genre, Sublevel Zero's roguelike design can't quite sustain it in the long term.

  • Lego Dimensions review

    Lego Dimensions is an inventive, delightful and hilarious take on "toys to life", but deep pockets are needed to appreciate it fully.

  • SOMA review

    The makers of Amnesia ease back on the horror, ramp up the philosophy and strike a satisfying balance between narrative and gameplay.

  • Tearaway Unfolded review

    More than a mere HD remaster, Media Molecule has rebuilt its Vita classic with entirely new gameplay for the PlayStation 4.

  • Until Dawn review

    Weird, gory and surprisingly moving - Sony's long-delayed slasher tribute is a flawed but memorable step forwards for “interactive movies”.

    Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell bypasses the difficult second album hurdle with a simple, elegant and carefully paced stealth puzzler.

  • Angry Birds 2 review

    A livelier and more interesting game than the original, but more aggressive freemium features sour the fun.

  • Tembo the Badass Elephant review

    Game Freak's delirious pachyderm platformer has tons of character, but can't quite sustain its early momentum.

  • Godzilla review

    Clumsy, repetitive and achingly dull, once again video games have poorly served the King of the Monsters.

  • Ronin review

    A quirky and stylish action platformer with a potentially brilliant combat system, sadly undercut by fussy and restrictive design.

  • PlanetSide 2 review

    An imposing but brilliant free-to-play gem that everyone should try, even if only a few will make peace with its off-putting nature.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight review

    A confident mixture of familiar gameplay and bold storytelling brings Rocksteady's superhero trilogy to a satisfying, memorable close.

  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited review

    Put in the hours and the console version of Bethesda's MMO eventually finds its feet, but remains dull, muddled and plagued by bugs.

  • Kholat review

    Gorgeous to look at but frustrating to play, this desolate horror adventure loses its way almost as much as its wandering protagonist.

  • Wolfenstein: The Old Blood review

    Tried and trusted gameplay is boosted with a generous, if slightly monotonous, serving of genuinely fresh content in this budget prequel.

    The second half of Double Fine's adventure offers more puzzles, lots of repetition and a muddled conclusion.
