Review: XIII – Game Remake – Based on the 1984 Belgian Graphic Novel Series

It barely happens that the same developers try to create another remake of the same masterpiece. The exceptional case of XIII shows that everybody makes mistakes, and sometimes it’s best to learn the hard way. This comic book game has come a long way to become one of the best fps single player shooters in my opinion. The Twisted Story of XIII XIII’s story is based upon the Belgian comic book released in 1984. The first game adaptation came out in 2003 for PC’s and game consoles, including Sony...

Review: Riders Republic – Fun and Chaos Rolled Into One

What do open-world racing games do wrong that Riders Republic does right? They focus on car racing, while Riders Republic allows you to race with a wide variety of unconventional vehicles – even parachutes. Ubisoft’s newest game is an open-world racing game that drops you into a vibrant world where you can immerse yourself in the fun and chaos. Whether you want to snowboard wearing a bunny hat, or you want to get to the top of the leaderboard in a onesie, you can race the courses you want,...

Review: OlliOlli World – A Laid-Back Take on Skateboarding Games

Escape to an Adventure Time-ish place with OlliOlli World, the third game in the OlliOlli series. Unlike regular skateboarding games, OlliOlli Word takes on a laid-back approach and gives you a vibrant stage where you can kickflip, backslide, grind, and grab all you want. It may not be as challenging as Skater XL, but it’s the best bet if you want to break into the world of skateboarding games – and if you want to play something pleasing to the eyes.

Review: Shadow Warrior 3 – This Ninja Should Have Stayed Hidden

Flying Wild Hog’s latest installation of Shadow Warrior has been on my radar for a while. With the decision of having Shadow Warrior 3 drop the co-op loot based gameplay of Shadow Warrior 2 I was nervous getting into this crazy vibrant world for the third time. Was this departure, from what worked so well with it’s last game, the right call for this franchise or should this ninja have been sent back to the Dojo for some more lessons?

Review: Call of Duty: Vanguard – Is it a World War II Game Worth Playing?

Ah, yes. Another Call of Duty game that’s set in World War II. The eighteenth game (yes, there are that many) in the Call of Duty lineup was teased to be one of the “best” games set in the second world war, but is it, truly? Activision has released several Call of Duty games set in that time period, such as its original game Call of Duty, so it doesn’t come as a shock that they’d take gamers back to World War II. After all, it’s been a long...

Review: Empire of Sin – Living the Mobster Life

It took twenty years for Romero Games to release the highly anticipated Empire of Sin, and all we can say is that it was worth the wait. Set against the gin, guns, and glamour of 1920s Chicago, Empire of Sin is the kind of video game that has plenty to offer. Much like Chicago in the 1920s, Empire of Sin is a flawless mix between a tactical shooter and a business simulator. It’s on a genre of its own and it isn’t difficult to see why it has received...

Review: Borderlands 3 – A Lot to Loot and Shoot

Gearbox Software has returned to its most successful franchise by releasing Borderlands 3. This visually stunning, Max Max-like game offers more than just nostalgia. With a thirty-hour campaign, amusing narratives, and a diverse array of weaponry, Borderlands 3 is easy a step above its predecessors. We were first treated to the post-apocalyptic, “loot and shoot” game back in 2009, and since then, Borderlands has become one of the most popular RPG shooters to ever grace our consoles. In September of 2019, Gearbox Software released the fourth installment, Borderlands 3,...

Review: Dirt 5 – Arcade-Like Racing That Brings Back Old School Fun

Racing games tend to take themselves seriously these days. With simulators such as Gran Turismo and Project Cars, light is rarely shined on arcade-like racing games like Mario Kart anymore. With Dirt 5 from Codemasters Cheshire, gamers can fully immerse themselves in nostalgic, arcade-style action. Dirt 5 abandons the typical, formal, and realistic simulation and embraces lighthearted gameplay, even starting with a corny joke the moment you press play. Unlike its predecessor, the 2.0, Dirt 5 takes a step back in terms of gameplay. It doesn’t want you to...

AquaNox: Deep Descent is the reboot of the original AquaNox series that was highly popular back in the late 90s.

Review: RIDE 4 – One of the Best Bike Racing

2020 has been a great year for fans of racing games. In March, we were treated to TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2, which offered death-defying thrills on wheels.

In October, Milestone returned with the RIDE 4, a bike racing experience that emulates Gran Turismo for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. If you enjoyed the license tests in Gran Turismo, you’ll find yourself in familiar territory with RIDE...

Review: NBA 2K21

The new NBA 2K21 captures the feel of a real-world basketball game, immersing you in the experience of being cheered on by thousands of fans as you make your shot. Those who have played the NBA 2K20 will find themselves in familiar territory with the NBA 2K21. It’s basically the same game but with several minor upgrades. As with all games by Visual Concepts and 2K Sports, NBA 2K21 looks as sharp and as visually pleasing as its predecessors. Released just two months before the PlayStation 5, the NBA...
