The best part in being free-to-play will be that Neverwinter is there for those looking to try and there's certainly no harm in paddling in Cryptic's pool. The number of players encountered is a testament to its accessibility. However, veteran MMO players may find it too easy; newcomers may disagree with the payoff vs. time spent. Either way it's worth venturing in - just don't expect a tale for the ages.
Perfectly treading the line between game and film, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is interactive storytelling at its best; a evocative, devastating and ultimately triumphant portrayal of love, loss, death and reunion which fully deserves all of the plaudits it will no doubt receive.
Given the source material One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is likely to be avoided by most as they have no connection already in place and the genre is ten-a-penny on the current generation of consoles. This would be a mistake. The story is lively and full of interesting characters even if it's basic in its plotting and execution. That�s not a problem though given the focus is on the battles themselves and the mechanics of the fighting, made ever deeper thanks to the variety of crew members at your disposal and the combos that come with them. It�s not Bayonetta depth but it sits well alongside Kratos and company. The structure can get repetitive but there�s so much going on in addition to the main objectives that if you enjoy this at the start you�ll still do so at the end. The otaku edge to it is the nudge needed to make it a worthwhile addition to your collection.
In taking and refining the best bits of previous games, Ubisoft is admittedly treading water and, some would say, stagnating. The eavesdropping should really be, well, dropped but those moments of frustration and repetition are far outweighed by the lure of the sea. Not a flagship title for the series then, but one that will delight fans and newcomers alike.
Brimming with atmosphere and the kind of dialogue that Telltale Games are acclaimed for, the high points of Episode 1 just about offset the jerky camera work, poor loading times and clunky QTE controls which blemished their previous effort, and which are far more pronounced here.
FIFA 14 pushes the franchise forward in baby steps without providing any major surprises or new 'wow� features, yet is still streets ahead of the competition and a must for any footie fan. A solid but slight evolution of the franchise, here�s hoping that the next iteration brings us closer to perfection, word is the Xbox One/PS4 version is a ground up rebuild!
Call of Duty: Ghosts does not tamper with the formula, fans will receive what they expect yet, with the world moving on to the next generation of consoles, many could perhaps be wanting more and Call of Duty: Ghosts is too formulaic to offer this. It is a victim of its own institution in a world that is quickly moving forwards.
