How much do you know about The Great War? Valiant Hearts puts the player into the action and let you take part in the emotional aspect of a war, the different sides and stories of the different countries fighting for their honour, and you smack dab in the middle trying to solve puzzles and yet set things as right as they can be during a war. Valiant Hearts lets you feel the war in a different way

Review - EA Sports UFC

ea-sports-ufc

IT'S TIME! It is finally time to see what EA Sports has managed to do with the UFC franchise now that they got complete control over it. Last UFC release was great but one of the biggest gripes about the game series has always been the steep learning curve that it constantly introduces to new comers and therefore makes the game hard for them to get behind, I am glad to say that EA Sports UFC has managed to make this the most approachable UFC game to date, but yes it is still a rough game with a steep learning curve

Review - Blue Estate

blue-estate-logo

The prequel to Viktor Kalvachev's Blue Estate graphic novel first episode comes in form of a on-rails shooter where you use motion controls to play, for the PS4 you use the gyroscope and the Dualshock's touch-pad, and the Kinect Sensor for Xbox One, we played the PS4 version for this review. You can get to re-live the glories days of on-rail shooters, and from a fan of those days I would just like to say that I wish it wasn't an on-rail shooter...

Review - GRID Autosport

grid-autosport

GRID Autosport is picking up where GRID 2 left off a short year ago, and it seems as though this is the game where they took all the criticism and just re-released the game the way the fans wanted it to be. It really is the GRID 2 that we wanted when we played it and even though some of you might feel cheated for picking up another GRID game this quickly you will not regret it at this is the game for the fans

Review - MotoGP 14

As with any racing game they usually fall on me to review, as my speciality is that genre, however I play mostly car racing games and when there are a lot of them it tend to get repetitive at times and I notice I nitpick a little too much since I have seen a lot of them, so when I got word that my next review project would be a motorcycle based racing game I felt an excitement for the genre again and was excited to try out Moto GP 14

Review - Murdered: Soul Suspect

Murdered-soul-suspect-logo

Back in 1990 there was a movie that took the world with storm, it was called Ghost. The year is 2014 and we have a game with the basic principles and it is called Murdered Soul Suspect. Well that is not totally true as in my mind the game is a lot more interesting than the movie was but even though the concept is the same, you are killed, turned into a ghost and it is your job to solve the crime as a ghost. This is our not so spooky review of Murdered: Soul Suspect

Review - Watch Dogs

WatchDogs-preview-1

When you first heard of Watch Dogs it seemed like an over ambitious idea that would never see the light of day, however once we got to play Assassin's Creed Black Flag we kind of had hope that Watch Dogs might not be just a fantasy after all and we started to get excited. After a few delays which hit some fans pretty hard it is finally time to hack the streets of Chicago as we review the PS4 version of Watch Dogs

Review - Wolfenstein The New Order

Inglorious Bastards meets Wolfenstein 3D is the best way to quickly wrap-up my experience with Wolfenstein: The New Order. Since I was the one on the team that remembered what it felt like the first time I tried Wolfenstein 3D and how much impact it has had on the genre to this day I was first in line when the review copies was dealt out. And this is how I truly feel about the latest Wolfenstein release

Review - Worms Battlegrounds

logo

Back in 1995 I was 14 years old, the perfect age to discover a game that took a army of worms, gave them a huge arsenal of real and insane weapons and just put them up against other worm armies, usually your friends playing next to you. This is how I spent most of my free-time when I played games back in the day, by blowing up my friends in Worms. Some years have passed since then but the recipe is still the same, use your worm army to destroy the other worm army, however the recipe is the same Battlegrounds is a new feature for this brand new release of Worms: Battlegrounds that we reviewed for the PS4

Review - Bound By Flame

From the developers of games such as Gray Matter, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, Of Orcs and Men and Mars: War Logs comes a role-playing game called Bound By Flame. A game that the developers claimed to be similar to Mars but by listening to the critics feel they have made a much better product. We are here to put this theory to the test by reviewing Bound By Flame for the Playstation 4

Review - inFamous Second Son

Infamous-Second-Son-PS4-Trailer

InFamous is a game that, even though it isn't the most popular franchise out there it has created enough buzz and a big enough following that it has been able to turn itself into a profitable franchise and Second Son is proof of that, just take a look at the game and you will know what we mean as this is probably the most beautiful “next-gen” or “current-gen” game out there by far, it looks absolutely stunning, but is looks enough to sell you on the game? We get to review the PS4 version of inFamous Second Son.


ngbbs51c4a8fa2d6a2

 

The game starts off a few years after the good ending of inFamous 2, although you can easily jump into this game without having played through the previous games and puts you in the shoes of Delsin in an living breathing version of Seattle. Delsin's can have multiple powers, starts with smoke power and then generously introduces you to the new powers as you progress. Shards hidden around the city, shards are of course used to buy new abilities once you level up.

Play the game as always, either good or bad play through you choose, save civilians and get good karma, take them out and you get evil/bad karma, although I felt personally that there was little to no reason to play through as evil Delsin, but the option is there if you choose to do so. If you do not kill civilians you, rather stun them etc. you do get away with it without it affecting your overall good or evil play through which is nice as you will get into situations where they can get in the way, but some powers gives you the option to stun them, or just hit them in certain areas of the body to just get them out of your way without actually killing them

Sadly though not too much of the environment is destructible but there are some areas where you can take down set objects and yes, once again Sly Cooper gets a few, maybe too many, nods within the game as neon signs and graffiti will usually show something from those games, nothing specific just random fun for those who take the time out to spot stuff like that within the environment. The game has a lot of detail and you should just stop doing missions for a short period of time and just head out into the city and explore, once again, the game looks stunning.

Still a lot of different side quests/missions to keep you occupied within the city when you are not doing the campaign or just want a break from it like for example if you take out what is called the D.U.P Mobile Command spread across the city you will get new side missions, blast shards show up on the map and you get new respawn points. The real beauty of the inFamous series is that if you have previously played one of them you feel comfortable immediately when you start playing a new one as it always feels like a inFamous game although enough changes has been made to make it a new game, but as far as the overall controls go this plays and runs like an inFamous game, as it should. The powers are still the main reason I like these games and the powers you get in Second Son are just as fun to play around with and difficult enough to give you some challenge before you master them, and once you do, as with any other inFamous game, you feel like a bad-ass superhero once again.

However, getting snagged and caught in objects and sometimes buildings, and some pre-set animations made combat a bit tricky at times but the checkpoint system saves this from being too frustrating as the checkpoint system is really forgiving and pretty well balanced. The controller is also used well in my mind, although I am sure some of you will disagree, but the implementations of the touch-screen and the motion sensing and the built in audio made the experience even better in my mind but you can feel that out for yourself as it is more of preferable than anything else.

 

8half

The question really comes down to if you were a fan of the previous inFamous games or not, if you were then you should definitely try out Second Son as it takes whatever made the previous games good and just implement enough new features and tweaks to make them even better. But if you grew tired of the previous games then you might want to try and rent it before you make up your mind. InFamous Second Son is more of the same only better.

Review - Luftrausers

luftrausers

We as gamers are lucky to live in a world where games like Luftrausers can exist. The only problem is that it needs to live mainly on word-of-mouth as it is a indie game but if you have followed us before you know how we feel about indie games, and Luftrauser is another reason as to why we sometimes love indie games more than any other triple A release and here is why.

Review - SteamWorld Dig

steam-world-dig-010

With the incredible success of Minecraft we have seen these last couple of years it seems like mining is the new thing all games try to implement somehow in their game lately, and Steamworld Dig is one of the few out there that we had the pleasure of reviewing that actually changes it up enough to make it a game that can be referred to as being like Minecraft but it is no rip-off and is a delightful game that I personally think most of you will absolutely fall in love with, I know I did and here is why in my Steamworld Dig Review.

Review - Dark Souls 2

Dark-Souls-2-Logo1

Dark Souls is a name of a game that evokes emotions, not the David Cage type of emotions but real ones. It is a series of games, with the first release called Demon Souls which came onto the scene and carved its name as a hard game, then Dark Souls released and it reopened the wound and poured salt into it, and now, just as the wound was about to heal here comes Dark Souls 2 with a can of acid just in case the last two games didn’t hurt enough. We get our ass handed to us again by willingly choosing to review Dark Souls 2 on the PS3
