9 / 10.0 - Heavy Rain
Mar 1, 2016

Heavy Rain looks fantastic on PS4 and still has the power and sophistication to leave a lasting impression. Despite not fixing the glitches and awkward, robotic crowd scenes for this remaster, Quantic Dream's interactive drama is an absorbing experience not to be missed.

As the best game in the Chronicles trilogy, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia delivers some solid sections of stealth play set against a beautiful backdrop, but still falls flat with frustrating level design and uninspiring combat.

Periods of fun stealth play aren't enough to rescue the second entry in the Chronicles saga from being a forgettable, average platformer.

6.5 / 10.0 - Just Dance 2016
Oct 28, 2015

Fun but flawed, Just Dance 2016 is wildly entertaining with family and friends and offers instant pick-up-and-play appeal, but it needs a serious rethink in terms of its scoring system, track list and identity if it's to continue to be a success.

A rock solid foundation for a new platforming franchise, Tembo the Elephant is exhilarating when it's at its best, but its heavy challenge and need to repeat levels can be frustrating.

8 / 10.0 - The Fall
Jul 16, 2015

The controls could be more intuitive, as could interacting with objects, but overall The Fall's winning combination of great storyline, well-penned script and impressive game world makes it one of the best indie titles out there.

Look past its dated graphics, and players will find a game steeped in strategy and high on challenge. Despite the repetition, there's no disputing that chaining together a huge combo to torture and kill mere mortals can be an extremely satisfying way of releasing your daily stresses.

6 / 10.0 - Whispering Willows
Jun 30, 2015

Immersive audio and impressive art-style isn't quite enough to prevent the gameplay of this intriguing ghost story from being quite banal.

8 / 10.0 - Project CARS
May 6, 2015

Issues with A.I hold it back from greatness, but Project CARS is on the right track with its sandbox career, community-focused online experience and A-grade car handling mechanics.

7.5 / 10.0 - Zombie Army Trilogy
Mar 4, 2015

Love zombies, hate Nazis? Zombie Army Trilogy is an impressive three game package that needs to be played co-operatively to get the most out of it. It can be a bit of a slog, but good enemy variety and level variety keeps it challenging and fun.

It's clear to see Grim Fandango was a great game in its day with superb characterisation and humour shining through. Getting through its logic-defying puzzles though is like staying in hell for a few days.

8.5 / 10.0 - Far Cry 4
Nov 24, 2014

Even though its plotline fails to engage and grappling play gets repetitive and boring, Far Cry 4's game-world and multitude of engaging missions and tasks draw you in. There's so much fun stuff to do in Kryat that you could get lost here for some time. Oh, and you can ride an elephant and flip over vehicles with its trunk.

7 / 10.0 - Never Alone
Nov 16, 2014

On occasion, gameplay feels stale due to the lack of depth and frustrates with frequent death inevitable, but the authenticity of the folklore tale coupled with a great art-style and engaging video docs takes you on a journey that actually feels refreshingly unique and certainly worth a look at its modest price point.

A fun way to learn the guitar which compliments existing methods with a comprehensive set of tutorials and a superb feedback system that challenges you to improve.

Still the best competitive Karaoke franchise on the market, this latest version fails to impress with a lack of game modes, mobile app connection issues and the inability to download all the tunes you want on PS4, or transfer some of them from older versions of the game.

6.5 / 10.0 - Just Dance 2015
Oct 27, 2014

Just Dance 2015 is definitely fun to play, especially with family and friends, but the inconsistency of the scoring system brings into question whether it actually does track your moves accurately.

Mini-games are hit-and-miss and frequent loading screens frustrate, but there's a lot to like about this latest series of detective adventures with some immersive cases and a decent production quality.

6.5 / 10.0 - Flockers
Sep 16, 2014

Overly familiar and lacking variation, Flockers still manages to embrace that one-more-go mentality with its semi-addictive blend of strategy and sheep culling.
