Gravity Rush Review

  One might reasonably argue that Assassin’s Creed and Super Mario Galaxy revolutionised thought processes underpinning the assumptions of what constitutes enjoyable navigation in third person action games. Being able to climb up and around just about any wall or building and navigate between them via parkour elements with Altair was a genuine pleasure for …

Magic 2014: Duels of the Planeswalkers Review (PSN)

If you’re not familiar with Magic: The Gathering, or you are a returning player from yesteryear, then this title is a solid place to start with. Several issues with the title lead me to believe that you’d be better off with the paper form of magic to learn the ins and outs of the game, …

James Noir’s Hollywood Crimes 3D Review (3DS)

A promising title that fails to live up to the hype The 3DS seems to be having an identity crisis at the moment; the best titles are rehashes of the (admittedly impressive) Nintendo library, and most original titles fall guilty of “Wii-itis” – that annoying thing whereby the device gimmick is shoehorned in wherever it …

Professor Layton and The Lost Future Review (DS)

Another journey for the prolific professor…through time? Following your dreams into the world of archaeology can be something of a dangerous escapade unless you swallow pride and teach your trait to some gormless students.
