    Resident Evil is a franchise that seems to be going the same way most longtime franchises are going: in the wrong direction. To most die-hard fans of the series and casual gamers, ask them what Resident Evil is and the a... Read Full Review

    Silent Hill HD Collection

    With HD collections being the new easy money making ploy, Silent Hill 2 and 3 get the *ahem* HD makeover.

    I will say right off the bat, I am very much against HD collections; they are the easiest way to make a quick few quid of people with minimal effort. A quick spit polish on the rough edges and give the game the complete ... Read Full Review

    Silent Hill: Downpour

    Silent Hill, once seen as the psychological king of the horror genre. But can this game bring the series back to form?

    Lets be honest, for those of us that worship 'Team Silent' original Silent Hill games, it's fair to say the series has taken a 180 nose dive since Team Silent left the series. Countless developer changes, and attempts o... Read Full Review

    Game of Thrones appears to be the next big thing on the TV at the minute, and who can blame anyone for be immersed in it: brilliantly deep characters, with amazing twists and turns in a medievil fantasy setting. The ... Read Full Review

    Max Payne 3

    It was never going to better the series, but it doesn't stop it being an amazing game.

    For me, on a personal level, I knew right from the off this game would never beat Remedy's first two attempts. It's development left a lot of the fans very worried about where the game was going. It's been nearly a d... Read Full Review

    Didn't like Forever, but like Duke Nukem? Get on this!

    Duke Nukem: Forever was a game I knew wouldn't meet today's criteria for FPS games. A very out dated game, with ideas coming from everywhere for the gameplay, but falling flat on its face. It's key influence was clearl... Read Full Review

    Batman: Arkham City

    Overrated? One might think so.

    So, with the year 2011 being a colossal year for AAA+ titles, Batman: AC has been held and pushed into your face by critics just as much as, say, the next COD, for being "the best game to come out this year". Infact, t... Read Full Review

    RPG of the year? It certainly is in my book thus far.

    The original Deus Ex game for the PC was a revolution -- no pun intended -- it changed the face of RPG's and the mechanics of gaming in alot of ways. It spawned a sequel, which to be honest, was a pile of crap, and has s... Read Full Review
