    BioShock Infinite

    One of the most incredible environments wasted on a generic and shallow FPS

    I had such high hopes for this game. The introduction absolutely blew me away as you enter Colombia and wander through this mesmerising utopia. This truly is one of the most beautiful game environments I've ever seen! I ... Read Full Review

    I'll admit, my first impressions of this game were very bad and I made a rash decision to stop playing and uninstall it from my system. Here's why... The graphics style really doesn't appeal to me. It's like the desig... Read Full Review

    Absolution reminds me just how great previous Hitman games were, and how far this falls short.

    Of all the games I've played in my lifetime, the Hitman series ranks among my utmost favourites. Naturally, my expectations were very high for Absolution. On first impressions, the game looked good. The graphics are g... Read Full Review

    Far Cry 3

    It's not the epic masterpiece it claims to be, but ignore the hype, don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

    First of all let me say that Far Cry 3 is a decent game and can be a fun way to pass the time. If you bought this game without seeing any reviews or any of the misleading hype, you may be quite satisfied with this game. ... Read Full Review

    Dishonored was one of those games that caught my interest from the very early trailers. Beautiful and unusual graphic style, captivating atmosphere and a really interesting premise. The game lives up to all of these e... Read Full Review

    Unbearably tedious plot, with cutscene after cutscene, exposition and more exposition, and not nearly enough gameplay.

    Unbearably tedious plot, with cutscene after cutscene, exposition and more exposition, and not nearly enough gameplay.

    I only got a few hours into this game before boredom got the better of me. From the onset, you're hit with heaps of exposition and backstory, talking about...well I lost track to be honest, and completely lost interest. ... Read Full Review

    I wanted to love this, I really did, but some of the controls are buggy and it just wasn't much fun.

    I am a big fan of the Half Life games and when I saw that somebody had enhanced the original game I felt my pulse racing with anticipation. In terms of the visual overhaul, I give the team big props. The textures are... Read Full Review

    While most games use cutscenes to break up the gameplay, Max Payne 3 uses gameplay to break up the cutscenes.

    I've been following this series with a passion. After playing the first title I was a little disappointed by the lack of polish, awkward controls and the elementary click left mouse button to do everything gameplay, but ... Read Full Review

    A half-decent shooter ruined by poor Windows support, bugs and crashes.

    As pretty as the original Crysis was, I always felt the gameplay was lacking. Enemies darted around too quickly, making it difficult to get a clear shot, and often took several shots to kill, reducing the game to manic b... Read Full Review

    Chapter 3 picks up the gripping story, but production values have really slipped to an all time low.

    As an 80s kid and a Back to the Future fan I have been delighted with this series so far. With all the pathetic movie remakes around today I was very sceptical when I heard they were reviving the franchise, but Telltale ... Read Full Review
