Sniper Elite 3 Review

Sniper Elite 3 Review

You can`t beat a bit of sneaking around and sniping people especially when those magic words “headshot” appear on the screen, one of the best games for this is of course is Sniper Elite and with the release of Sniper Elite 3 the stage is set for more fun and games.

Sniper Elite`s main selling point has been the kill cam with graphic slow motion/x-ray shots of your bullet tearing someone apart and…

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review

There’s no doubt that War is a subject well represented in the video game space. It seems that ninety percent of the time when you pick up a controller your main objective for the next few hours will be to stare down a scope and mindlessly pick off grunts with relative impunity. Indeed many of these titles have lead characters that seem solely motivated by the rationed weak porridge of brown…

Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark Review

Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark Review

Transformers are back with another title oddly called Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark, the Dark spark being a powerful artefact that can rip holes in dimensions and therefore bring the two transformers universes together, a sort of evil version of the All Spark.

To be honest the plot is pretty irrelevant really and unless you are a hard core Transformers fan you won`t care, what is important…

GRID Autosport Review

GRID Autosport has finally made up for all the mistakes of GRID2, and I am pleased to say Codemasters have gone back to their roots and created a full on racing game that is a worthy successor to the original.

OK it’s not a proper racing sim, more of a simulation meets arcade kind of thing and slightly poor graphics aside it isn`t half bad.

With improvements to the handling and plenty of car and…

Playseat Challenge Simulator Review

Playseat Challenge Simulator Review

As I have probably mentioned before I am a big fan of driving simulator games, and like most of us we would a love a racing cockpit to take it to the next level, if you’re stuck for space (as I am) then having what basically looks like a stripped down car in your living room does take up a fair bit of space, and this is what has put me off them for a while, OK there are some that sort of fold up…

Nano Quadcopters Review

Drones and quadcopters are very much in the news these days unfortunately not always for the right reasons, they do serve a purpose though and the variety is endless, the only problem I find with them is what good are they if you have a small room to fly it in?

Well the solution is here with what is billed as the world’s smallest quadcopter and I have been sent out two to try out, and the results…

Watch Dogs review

If Assassins Creed, Batman Arkham city and GTA 5 had a child then it would probably look like Watch Dogs the latest offering from Ubisoft montreal , this isn`t a bad thing by any means yet it doesn`t come up to the standards of the afore mentioned titles.

So here`s the story line which is pretty bland really, you play as Aiden Pearce a sort of moody self-styled hacker/vigilante a character…

Fifa World cup Brasil 2014 Review

Fifa World cup Brasil 2014 Review

Well folks it’s only a day or so to go before all the madness of the World cup begins as the nation optimistically holds its breath and hopes England will pull it off, myself not being a fan of the game won`t be watching much of it but that’s not to say I won`t get dragged into the euphoria if we get through to the next round.

This brings me to the latest offering from EA, Fifa World cup Brasil…
