  • SOMA review

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

    Recommended PC PS4

  • Tearaway Unfolded review

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

    Recommended PS4

  • Until Dawn review

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

    Recommended PS4

  • Volume review

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

    Recommended PC PS4 Vita

  • Rare Replay review

    A ridiculously generous and thoughtfully presented compilation packed with bona fide classics and obscure gems.

    Essential One

  • Angry Birds 2 review

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

    Android iPad iPhone

  • Tembo the Badass Elephant review

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

    PC PS4 One

  • Godzilla review

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

    Avoid PS3 PS4

  • Ronin review

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

    Mac PC

  • 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.

    Recommended PS4

  • Batman: Arkham Knight review

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

    Recommended PC PS4 One

  • 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.

    PS4 One

  • Kholat review

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

    Mac PC

  • Hatred review

    A sloppy and frustrating twin stick shooter that is nowhere near as shocking and dangerous as it thinks it is.


  • Massive Chalice review

    A demanding and ingenious twist on turn-based strategy sees Double Fine back at its best.

    Recommended Mac PC One

  • Monstrum review

    An atmospheric horror experience that goes from thrills to frustration all too soon.


  • Windward review

    A charmingly presented but tediously repetitive seafaring RPG that fails to make a big enough splash.

    Mac PC

  • 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.

    PC PS4 One

  • Broken Age Act 2 review

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

    PC PS4 Vita

  • The Evil Within: The Assignment and The Consequence review

    A generous and adventurous double dose of DLC, but one hampered by clumsy control.

    PC PS4 One

  • Dungeons 2 review

    An improvement over its predecessor, with some welcome new ideas, but lacking in depth and long-term appeal.


  • Run, Sackboy! Run! review

    A pleasant but generic endless runner that fails to engage with the heart of LittleBigPlanet.


  • Dead Rising Watchtower movie review

    Overlong, uneventful and cheap as hell, Watchtower is a poor adaptation of Capcom's games and an even worse horror movie.

  • Axiom Verge review

    A faithful and beautifully crafted Metroidvania homage that never quite stamps its own identity on the genre.

    Recommended PC PS4 Vita

  • Battlefield Hardline review

    The old Battlefield brilliance is still there, but the familiar gameplay fails to take advantage of the cops and robbers setting.

    PC PS3 PS4 360 One

  • Ori and the Blind Forest review

    A stunningly presented explorative platformer that favours reliably familiar ideas over innovation.

    Recommended PC One

  • LA Cops review

    A potentially promising top-down tactical shooter is hobbled by terrible control and flaky AI. Nice moustaches though.

    PC One

  • Zombie Army Trilogy review

    Shaggy grindhouse fun in short multiplayer doses, but there's not enough meat on the bone for prolonged solo play.

    PC PS4 One
