Don Bradman 17 is an improvement on Don Bradman 14 but it's no giant leap for cricketing kind. If you're a cricket fan and want to experience your sport in a video game this is by far your best option. DB17 is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC

6.5 / 10.0 - FIFA 17
Oct 20, 2016

While the game is amazing at its core, it's beset by infuriating bugs. The Journey shows promise, but drags on too long, becoming a dull grind before it comes to a close. It's a good start for FIFA on its new engine, there are too many kinks that have yet to be worked out.

So that's it! you'll get 4 great maps and while I definitely have my preference I can honestly say I'm never disappointed with which map is picked in the rotation. They are all good in their own way, just like the kid at school who licked the chalkboard when no one was looking.

In the end it is still Call of Duty and if you aren't a fan of the run and gun mechanic then you are probably not going to be a big fan. However if you've ever enjoyed any Call of Duty game since World at War you are going to love this. Easily the best multiplayer I've experienced in years along with a strikingly unique single player campaign plus a bucket load of extras and a massive community to enjoy it with. You can't go wrong picking it up this year.

Don Bradman 14 on the new generation consoles is a solid upgrade wthout changing anything that makes the game a great cricketing title.

Toys for Bob have knocked this one out of the park and have returned with what is possibly the very best version of Skylanders available. The new addition of traps and new figurines open up entirely new ways to play. This is possibly the perfect Christmas present for the young at heart in your life.

7 / 10.0 - FIFA 15
Oct 17, 2014

There is nothing wrong with FIFA 15 and it plays great, but so did FIFA 14 and for the first time in a long time I cannot find a reason to upgrade. If you have FIFA 14 then just stick with it, you're not missing out on anything.

8.5 / 10.0 - FIFA 14
Sep 9, 2014

We've already reviewed the main game and as such the game gets the same score. FIFA 14 on the Xbox One is great but there is absolutely no reason to buy it so close to the FIFA 15 release. Doesn't make it a bad game though.

7.5 / 10.0 - Ryse: Son of Rome
Sep 8, 2014

Ryse is a bit of a marmite game, if you are looking for a great gaming experience that takes forever to perfect then Ryse is not for you. If you are interested in a Roman interactive movie with a solid story line then I'd say give it a shot.

A solid new addition to the Call of Duty experience and some of the best maps I've played in a long time

8.1 / 10.0 - Titanfall
Mar 17, 2014

If Titanfall included private matches and a solid single player story the game would be banging on the door of 10/10 but these glaring misses are too big for a full price retail game.

5.5 / 10.0 - Halo: Spartan Assault
Feb 14, 2014

In the end the game isn't bad but unfortunately I just found it a little boring and that to me is one of the worst things a game could be.

8.3 / 10.0 - Call of Duty: Ghosts
Nov 5, 2013

Call of Duty: Ghosts is a great new addition to the franchise but it is definitely showing its age now. Far too many invisible walls and glitches in the single player campaign show a lack of due care and attention which I didn't expect from Infinity Ward. The multiplayer experience more than makes up for it though.
