8 / 10.0 - Alien: Isolation
Oct 6, 2014

As important as it is terrifying. A worthy successor to Scott's original vision and definitive proof that survival horror is back with a force.

Dec 11, 2014

A fine evolution of the Far Cry 3 formula, and an improvement in every way, but all without that same wow factor.

A plentiful array of excellent puzzle-platforming morsels given vitality by Nintendo's renowned knack for superb animation and design. Perfect for youngsters with just enough for grown-ups to enjoy as well, but it's marred by a lack of depth.

Resident Evil is a fine horror game that stands the test of time, and that game is still here. However Capcom's job updating it for 2015 is lazy and insulting to fans.

The Telltale style, successfully applied to an original, supernatural coming of age story. It's now up to Dontnod to continue the fine quality over three more episodes.

A disappointing second act, dragged down by the mundane but saved with an unexpected and game-changing twist.

May 22, 2015

Not perfect, but one of the most absorbing, challenging and fun games of the year so far, which makes the fact it was developed by just one person all the more astounding.

8 / 10.0 - Splatoon
Jun 4, 2015

Remarkably fun and boasting a bold, lively and completely mad style, Splatoon is an unbridled joy. Another gem for Nintendo's Wii U.

9 / 10.0 - Her Story
Jun 26, 2015

Thoroughly engaging from start to finish, Her Story is a tour de force of interactive storytelling and a murder mystery for the ages.
