Developer: Actalogic Genre: Tycoon, Simulation This one hurt, guys. What should have been a no brainer was rushed or simply not thought out enough. The tagline for Industry Empire was: “An entire industrial empire under your control. Have you always dreamed of swimming in money? In “Industry Empire” you are the boss of all bosses.” Okay, I can buy that, I’ve never played a game with that exact pre...[Read More]
Sacred 3 carries over the silly from the previous games in the series. Why do I mention this in the very first sentence? Well, it’s pretty much the main thing that’s carried over from the other games in the series. If you are a fan of the Sacred games then sacred 3 may feel like a bit of a departure, stripping-down what Sacred 2: Fallen Angel was and making it more about fast action an...[Read More]
Naughty Dog are arguably the best developer out there right now, raising the bar for story-driven single-player experiences every time they release a new game. After many years telling the story of Nathan Drake in Uncharted, Naughty Dog have moved on to a new franchise, and one with a whole different vibe to it. The Last of Us can be easiest described as the video game version of Cormac McCarthy’s...[Read More]
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Indie Developer: Wales Interactive Publisher: Wales Interactive Release Date: 14 Jul 2014 Infinity Runner confuses me in every way. I should hate it; it is a game that looks like Aliens: Colonial Marines graphically and is about nothing. And all that you do is run! That’s right, you just run in a forward progression in a sci-fi setting. Sounds awful, right? No! It is freakin...[Read More]
Genre: Action, Indie, RPG Developer: Lost Decade Games Publisher: Lost Decade Games A quick play of A Wizard’s Lizard will invoke a few things: familiarity, realization and anger. It’s not a bad game. It’s actually an alright game; it’s fun, colourful and interesting. But it’s not unique, it’s not standout and it’s a reskin of the early Zelda games. This is a worrying trend that I’ve touched on ma...[Read More]
Version tested: Xbox One Following on from Sniper Elite V2, a remake of the original Sniper Elite, developers Rebellion have taken everything good about Sniper Elite V2 and implemented on every single one of them as well as addressing problems with its predecessor. Sniper Elite III is a celebration of many things: gore, carnage, sniping, but most importantly, freedom of gameplay. Rebellion have cr...[Read More]
Version Reviewed: PlayStation 4 The most popular cycling race is the world may seem like a game would be the most boring thing in the world, especially when it aims to be an authentic experience. I mean, each race could last 150 km so that’s a few hours of holding R2 in the hopes to make it to the end. Surprisingly though, those of you who like the sport and want a serious approach to the sport ma...[Read More]
I know, it’s one of those things that you may just look past and move on. Some would joke that the Vita has such little support in terms of games that Farming Simulator may be a big get, and weirdly enough, it is, surprisingly. I don’t have a massive in-depth critique of that game simply because you probably know a lot about Farming Simulator and what it entails. Either way, the game kind of fits ...[Read More]
They say a luchadore wears his heart on his sleeve every time he or she enters the ring. Guacamelee! wears its inspirations on its sleeve, taking notable queues from old classics like the Castlevania and Metroid games. That’s not to say that Guacamelee! doesn’t have an identity of its own. Carefully trying to balance inspiration and individuality in a game can be very tough but developers Drinkbo...[Read More]
It’s been a few years since we last saw a UFC game grace our consoles but like the ground game, the series has had a bunch of transitions. New publisher, new developer, and a new generation of consoles have now come into play. With the team behind the Fight Night series at the helm, hopes are high. Unfortunately, despite it being a great looking game in terms of visuals and presentations, the game...[Read More]
Entwined was announced out of nowhere at Sony’s E3 press conference with an availability of right away. The game looked very pretty when it was shown off but right away there were some scepticisms about just how good it was. Sure it looked pretty and had a nice premise but what was there to make it stand out and be unique. The answer is unfortunately nothing.
It’s funny that it’s been this long that the Xbox One has been out without an appearance of a Geometry Wars like game. Thankfully, one single person noticed this void on the marketplace and decided to make Sixty Second Shooter Prime. Thing is: Is it good enough to follow in Geometry Wars’ acclaim?
