8.8 / 10.0 - DiRT Rally
Apr 12, 2016

DiRT Rally delivers on its promise of full simulation and then some, with an unrelenting, unforgiving rally experience and all the glory of eventual victory to go with it. The trinkets around rallying could do with some maintenance, but this is a game that can only get better - and it's already leaving many competitors in its smoke.

A refreshing change of pace in an era of serious gaming and consistent across all five episodes, Story Mode offers a laid-back adventure that’s accessible to any type of gamer. Order Up kicks off a new journey for the Order of the Stone with another solid, enjoyable effort, with more than enough humour and direction to keep you interested in what’s to come from the next three episodes.

Thanks to its short nature and stellar scripting, Minecraft Story Mode continues to throw haymakers. The action is ramped up once more in episode three, ending with a conclusion that nearly conjured up enough of a spectacle to be worthy of ending the whole series – if it wasn't ever so slightly rushed.

6.3 / 10.0 - Need for Speed
Nov 7, 2015

Instead of exciting racing, Need for Speed seems more focussed on tapping into trends and desperately trying to stay relevant. Instead of bringing something new to the table, it aims to recycle ideas from its peers.

The ride may've been short, but it was filled with entertainment along the way. Assembly Required manages to pack in a lot in such a short space of time. Whilst the surprise launch left me faintly surprised rather than overjoyed, episode three now can't come soon enough.
