• Alien: Isolation Review

    Published at PLAY Magazine - 15 readers

    We don’t know if Ridley Scott plays videogames – he seems like the kind of guy that would, though. If he happened to play Alien: Isolation, we can’t help but think of how he’d react to it – we’re sure it must make him feel proud, but uncomfortable at the same time. Alien: Isolation is more than just a survival-horror game – it’s the best Alien game that’s ever been made, impres ...

  • Wot I Think: Alien – Isolation

    Published at Rock, Paper, Shotgun - 6 readers

    By Adam Smith on October 3rd, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Alien: Isolation is Creative Assembly’s first-person survival horror take on Ridley Scott’s Alien. No predators, no marines, no swarms of xenomorphs. This time it’s not war. Instead, we have one space station, one creature and one Amanda Ripley, locked in an apparent cycle of terror.

  • Wot I Think: Gabriel Knight 20th Anniversary

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 10 readers - By Richard Cobbett on October 15th, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Well, 21st Anniversary really, but who’s counting? Gabriel Knight 20th Anniversary Edition is a chance to return to 1993 to re-experience the Schattenjager’s first case, but has it stood the test of time? Note to anyone who hasn’t played it, this is mostly going to be looking at the game as a remake rather than as a brand new adventure.
  • Wot I Think Now I’ve Finished Shadow Of Mordor

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 5 readers - By John Walker on October 6th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. Now I’ve played for a large proportion of the last five days, with the main storyline completed, and a worrying number of the collectibles and side quests ticked off, I feel far more prepared to give a more definitive statement on Middle-Earth: Shadow Of Mordor: I love it.
  • Wot I Think: Dreamfall Chapters – Book One

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 6 readers - By Adam Smith on October 22nd, 2014 at 3:00 pm. When you spend so long hoping for the continuation and conclusion of a story that was part of your earlier life, it’s a bittersweet relief to hear that the waiting is finally over. Parting is such sweet sorrow and all that, but it’s beneficial to have some closure.
  • Ryse: Son of Rome Review (PC)

    Worlds Factory - - 9 readers - Ryse: Son of Rome Review (PC) 09 October 2014 After a lukewarm reception on Xbox One, where it played the role of launch title, Ryse: Son of Rome lands now on PC shores. Crytek, traditionally a PC developer, is now able to show the game at its fullest graphics potential thanks to the additional power; the result is, quite frankly, unrivalled.

    …Tiny Review: Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse ⊟ Earlier this year, the first game from Yacht Club Games, a group of ex-WayForward developers, was released and was fantastic.

  • Lords of the Fallen Review – Lording It Up or Fallen Flat?

    Lords of the Fallen If you enjoy brutal combat, dark fantasy and a challenging bite to your gameplay, you might just like LotF. Welcome, dungeon crawlers, to a new world. A violent, doom-laden world of misery and corruption. A world where the only hope of salvation is a tattoo faced criminal with a chequered history and a physique that would put a professional wrestler to shame.

    Action games are making a comeback this year. Not too long ago we were plagued with shooter after shooter, and although the shooters are still releasing in full force, we’ve seen action games making resurgence – Bayonetta 2 released to huge acclaim, Hyrule Warriors was a surprise star, and now we have Samurai Warriors 4, obviously another Musou game, stepping in and hoping to a ...

  • PN Review: Castle Conqueror EX

    Trevor Gould On October 29, 2014 Review Overview Some good points, but the reworked AI tends to overshadow them. Series fans with high tolerance levels should still have some fun. The Castle Conqueror games found success on DSiWare, and no doubt CIRCLE hopes the same will be true with this expanded release of the original.
