Chris Capel's Reviews

Professional writer (it says so on his card), in-between novel writing Chris J Capel has been writing about videogames for over ten years. From humble beginnings on LucasArts fansite The International House of Mojo Chris fulfilled his lifelong dream and joined the team on the UK's greatest ever gaming magazine, PC Zone, for their last two years of life. These days Chris can mostly be found at, the new name for the now fully PC-focused games site previously known as Strategy Informer. He writes reviews, features, editorials, previews, and the odd bit of news as well as create as many entertaining videos as he can get his hands dirty on. And yes, he'll finish that novel soon.

6 / 10 - Scarlet Nexus

Bandai Namco's latest falls disappointingly short outside of the thrills and spills of its excellent battle system, but your mileage may vary depending on your fondness for anime.

A fun and deeply scary game - and the multiplayer needs to be experienced.

9 / 10 - Ion Fury

A nostalgic '90s throwback that's challenging, funny, cleverly designed, and shockingly attractive both despite and because of its ancient engine, which enables gigantic levels packed with detail. Chris J Capel

Considering it's 'only' a spin-off, this is a riotous and well-designed entry in the series - however, it's built with co-op in mind. Solo play is fun if flawed, but play with a friend, and you'll both have one of the best shooter experiences of the year so far.Chris J Capel

The enjoyable Cthulhu detective story is enough to be worth seeing through, but it’s a mystery why the other parts of the game couldn’t be as strong.

One of the most engaging and original story-based games this year. It's dragged down by some trite videogame elements but its characters elevate it above its contemporaries.

Far Cry New Dawn may be a shorter Far Cry experience, but it’s one of the most fun games in the series since Blood Dragon.

6.5 / 10.0 - Just Cause 4
Dec 9, 2018

On one side, we can’t deny we had a lot of fun dipping in and out of Just Cause 4. It’s an exciting, crazy sandbox with some wonderful tools and pretty non-stop action. The downside is - Just Cause 3 did most of this stuff a lot better.

The remastered version of the Indomitable Gauls' latest adventure is here, but is it worth going back to Las Vegum?

It's hard to complain about the amount of game here, and if you're a DC Comics fan you'll have a lot of fun, even if you had that same fun before.
