  • Review Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (Xbox One)

    Seeing double

    Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a journey. One that explores mature themes of family and loss while retaining it's ability to be utterly endearing. If you are one of the many people who experienced and thoroughly adored the story when it was released on Xbox 360 in 2013, you may well understand how excited we were to be able to play...

  • Review Payday 2: Crimewave Edition (Xbox One)

    A Complete Bust

  • Review Sniper Elite 3 (Xbox One)

    Blood and broken bones

    Ladies and gentlemen, Karl Fairbourne is back.

Blackwater isn't...

    It’s got groove, it’s got meaning

    If you’re a die-hard Grease fan who’s daydreamed about roaming the halls of Rydell high with the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies, then Grease Dance is an absolute must-purchase for you. For everyone else it’s not as sure a bet as Greased Lightning, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had. At first glance,...

  • Review Michael Phelps - Push the Limit (Xbox 360)

    Naked men

    When it comes to the world of swimming, there's no bigger name than Michael Phelps, but even his mighty reputation isn't enough to secure Michael Phelps: Push the Limit a gold medal. Any game that starts with a warning that it's physically draining even by Kinect standards should set alarm bells ringing, but Michael Phelps smartly rations...

  • Review Zumba Fitness: Join the Party (Xbox 360)

    Back of the class

    There’s no shortage of good fitness games for Kinect from EA, Ubisoft and more, but Zumba Fitness: Join the Party is the only one based on a real-life dancing craze. For those in the dark, Zumba is a fitness programme based on high-energy rhythms that’s designed to be taken in large classes, but how does it translate to a...
