Natural Doctrine review – Adapt or Die

Natural Doctrine is as hardcore as you can get when it comes to strategy role-playing games. With an emphasis on delivering challenging tactical grid-based combat and engrossing gameplay mechanics, the game serves up a distinctive and rewarding experience for SRPGs purists – with finer intricacies such as graphics and storytelling put on the backburner in favour…

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor review

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is at its absolute best when you’re slicing and dicing your way through a seemingly endless stream of dynamic enemies. Taking obvious inspiration from the combat of the Arkham series, the platforming of Assassin’s Creed, and the open-world exploration of The Elder Scrolls, Shadow of Mordor is a league above this generation thanks to an engaging, accessible and…

Wanted: Weapons of Fate Review

Short games seem to come part-and-parcel with any movie license these days. It’s often that we see movie-games rushed out to coincide with the release of the movie its based on and more often than not the end result is far less than impressive. In a somewhat tragic truth, it’s understandable that these games just…

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Even back in the days of the NES, movie-based video-games have been a rather sad affair that always end in rushed, crappy titles gaining sales due to the popularity of the franchises they represent. Needless to say there are a handful of exceptions to this rule, and thankfully Raven Studios effort in Wolverine is one…

Tom Clancy’s HAWX Review

After many different tactical approaches, the Tom Clancy franchise pits gamers into futuristic aerial combat with HAWX (High Altitude Warfare — Experimental), a somewhat flawed yet relatively enjoyable and action packed title. Tom Clancy’s HAWX isn’t a perfect game by any means, but it succeeds at providing a genuine arcade-style flight-action experience, complete with very…

Street Fighter IV Review

I dry the sweat from my palms and stretch out my hands, before reaching into my pocket and pulling out the last dollar coin I had swiped from my dad’s wallet. I’d been here for about two and a half hours by this point, my hands were starting to cramp up a little, and my…

Call of Duty: World at War Review

When it was announced that the next addition to the Call of Duty franchise would be set in World War II, the gaming world went into a frenzy. With Call of Duty 4 being set within a modern battlefield came a fresh take on a genre that had done the “great wars” of the world…

Bolt Review

More often than not, games based on movie tie-ins are nothing more than a cash cow with little to offer. It’s nice to see that regardless of Bolt’s short-comings in the plot department, it still offers a decently solid experience. Rather than jamming the movie script down our throats, Bolt takes place outside of the…
