With Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Naughty Dog have created their very best game and one of the best titles of this entire generation. If you own a PlayStation 4, you simply need to play it and if you don't, this is certainly a good reason to purchase the console.

Episode 2 is excellent, exactly as Hitman should be. Plenty to see, plenty to do and a wide variety of fun to be had.

MXGP2 is a fun game, with plenty to see and do. Obviously, fans of Motocross will get the most out of it, but there are way worse driving simulations out there.

8 / 10.0 - EA Sports UFC 2
Apr 5, 2016

UFC fans won't be disappointed with the amount of value on offer here, and its hard to think the franchise isn't going in the right direction. Minor issues do nothing to distract from the overall quality.

Buy it at the right time and you won't be disappointed, especially if you're a completionist. This is Hitman done right.

6.8 / 10.0 - Fortified
Mar 9, 2016

Fortified is an enjoyable romp through a criminally underused setting, but is held back by the jack of all trades nature of the action tower defence genre. It'll be fun with friends, and for a few hours alone, but mileage may vary.

It's sad that a game with so much potential ends up being a little bit buggy. There are a lot of positives, but a few too many negatives, so only those with a definite interest in rallying need apply.

In short, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is a great addition to the franchise despite minor problems that might annoy new players or those that are playing for the source material. It won't convince anybody that has hated the many, many games up until this point, but it doesn't really even need to.

6.4 / 10.0 - Heroes Reborn: Gemini
Jan 28, 2016

For $15, this is a good game to burn through over a weekend. Expect anything more than a above average tie-in, however, and you'll be left disappointed. Good for fans of Heroes (both of them) and anybody who longs for the days of endless licenced media.

6.6 / 10.0 - Starpoint Gemini 2
Jan 24, 2016

Don't bother buying unless you already know you'll love it. It's a hard game to judge, but most people are better off going for something more entertaining, or at least getting it on PC. Starpoint Gemini 2 could be great, but probably won't be.

5.4 / 10.0 - Hardware: Rivals
Jan 11, 2016

If you look up "average" in the gaming dictionary, a poster for this game will sit next to it. It's not a broken mess, but it's so run-of-the-mill you won't ever feel like you've missed out if you don't play it.

A fantastic episodic adventure with only a few shallow pitfalls to knock the experience. Comedy gaming done oh so right.

9 / 10.0 - DiRT Rally
Dec 18, 2015

This is how racing games should be - plenty to see, plenty to do and plenty to crash into. If you have any interest in the racing genre, if you remember the quality Codemasters games of the past or if you like titles that provide more than their fair share of value, Dirt Rally deserves to be on your watch list.

7 / 10 - The Swindle
Jul 26, 2015

The Swindle is a solid game, but it's a swag bag short of our full recommendation. As a title to play over a weekend – or between other games with more substance – it can't really be knocked, but don't expect to be feeling light fingered forever. This is a cunning con, a solid swizz – but it's been robbed of crime of the century status.

If epic stories are your thing, then you probably won't get much enjoyment out of Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess. But the point of the game is its murderous sandbox, and things have only improved in that regard since the original outing was released. Go mad – that's kind of the point – and slash up some do-good knights and confused Satan worshippers. After all, it's what Daddy would want.

6 / 10 - The Escapists
May 30, 2015

The Escapists is excellent at what it does, there's no doubt about that, and it's cornered a market that nobody else dares to touch. It's generous with content, it's deep, and, at times, it's extremely satisfying. Still, it can be very tedious, and as such, unless you're actually in prison and have time to kill, there are probably better ways to spend your limited gaming hours. If the premise intrigues you then by all means give it a go – otherwise, you may want to refrain from spending your time behind bars.

The return of zombies was an exciting part of the previous release, but the continuation of that and the lack of any standout maps makes Ascendance a less interesting prospect than its predecessor. That doesn't mean that it's bad, though, and fans will lap up the fresh environments. However, the next pack will need to go above and beyond if it wants to keep people excited ahead of Black Ops 3 in November.

4 / 10 - Project Root
Apr 29, 2015

Games like Project Root make you contemplate the futility of existence, and not in a good way like the philosophical musings of Postman Pat. It's not a bad game – not like Rambo or Ride to Hell: Retribution – it's just very, very boring. There needs to be a reason to play, and there's just nothing here to get excited about.

6 / 10 - Titan Souls
Apr 18, 2015

Our first hour with Titan Souls was fantastic, but after that the cracks start to show. It's not a bad game, and the atmosphere is excellent, but you'll get to the end knowing that it could have been better. The lack of information about the world makes you feel like you're just roaming a random castle or tower, like those Mega Drive roguelikes where the only goal was to get to the end. The length and price just help to make this excellent idea more unattractive.

If you're the type of person that likes to brag on Twitter about how many times Bloodborne has kicked your backside, then Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones may just be the challenge that you're looking for. Others should pause before purchasing, as your patience threshold will determine just how much enjoyment you get out of this sneaky sequel.
