    Review Mad Max

    Maximum carnage

    With the critical and commercial success of Mad Max: Fury Road, it's no wonder that the video game adaptation of the Mad Max universe has been so highly anticipated. Then, when you consider the fact that publisher WB Interactive has also had a rockin' year of releases – Batman: Arkham Knight, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Mortal...

    Review Mortal Kombat X

    Taking it to the X level

    Back in 2011, Mortal Kombat was reinvented for home consoles with its ninth entry, which amounted to what many consider to be the definitive game in the series.

    Review LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Delivering a brutally violent and relentlessly grim look into the Lord of the Rings universe might alienate too many fans of the...

    Review The LEGO Movie Videogame

    Everything is (not so) awesome

    The LEGO Movie Videogame is already the second LEGO game to be released on the next generation of consoles, and with the upcoming awkwardly-titled LEGO The Hobbit just on the horizon, this series has no intention of letting up. Based off the excellent movie, The LEGO Movie Videogame takes the honours of being one of...

    Review Batman: Arkham Origins

    This Batman may be less refined, but he still packs a solid punch.

    For a man who successfully fights crime by being one with the shadows, we have a feeling not even Batman himself would be comfortable living in the looming overcast of the masterful Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Those are not only two of the greatest superhero games in existence,...
