Easily one of the most anticipated games of this year, Fallout 4 doesn't disappoint. Along with the main mission there are hundreds of side quests and other things to get up to on your travels through the wasteland, and it is easy to get sucked in. There are some bugs and glitches which make it frustrating at times, but overall it is an engrossing and really enjoyable play.
'There Came an Echo' is a must buy for everyone who loves Sci-Fi or strategy games. Iridium Studio's decision to place voice commands at the core of all aspects of the game provides a uniquely enjoyable experience that is complimented by a thought-provoking storyline and fantastic soundtrack. If there is going to be a 'There Came an Echo 2' sign me up and take my money now because I am already sold.
A near perfect experience with amazing characters, gameplay and environments dripping with atmosphere, Resident Evil 4 is an absolute blast throughout and this Remaster is only hampered by the awkward controls and the cutscenes for certain parts of the game. Resident Evil 4 reminds us why it is the king of the series and why it deserves the top spot.
Xenoblade Chronicles X is an RPG that has players exploring the beautiful world of Mira, while helping the human race to survive on their new homeland. The story is slow to get going, but the game is packed full of side-quests and missions, meaning players will always find something to do. Meanwhile, the combat has an impressive amount of customisation, with a choice of weapons, skills, and classes, that allows the player to create fighting style tactics to suit their preferred play style.
DiRT Rally could be viewed as the Dark Souls of the racing genre; imposing to rookies, challenging, and realistic, yet absolutely gripping and full of reward! It'll initially scare some gamers, but once a comfort zone has been found - not least with the help of near endless options to aid, or challenge, the player - the game can satisfy most. A true representation of rallying, something that has not been achieved in gaming for far too long! It has some minuscule issues (once you see the PS2-age crowd models, you cannot un-see them) but, when it comes to the likes of Rally, Motorcross and Hillclimb motorsports, DiRT Rally really is the king of the road less travelled!
The decade old adventure has received a nice rejuvenation, that's fixed a number of gameplay elements, sped up inventory management and polished the aging, gritty visuals. That said it's also brought up a couple of new fiddly issues like laggy offscreen play and a lackluster new dungeon. Still The legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is nice update to one of the franchises best, a great way for fans to reminisce and a fantastic starting point for newcomers.
