Right, Destiny is out – which means many of you have been playing the game since yesterday. Very many of you are likely further than the point you got to in the beta. that means that not only have you gone to the Moon, but you’ve probably hit Venus and beyond.
Apparently, some rather heavily-marketed, RPG shooter with shared, MMO-esque worlds was released today. You won’t be seeing very many reviews for the game out today – save for one or two from mavericks who’ve ploughed their way through the game’s story without experiencing the game the way it’s meant to be played. Bungie has warned against day one reviews – and after playing for a few hours last night, I get their point.
Destiny is coming to assault your consoles in just under a week. It’s one of the most hyped games in the history of the medium, and from our time with it thus far it seems to be worthy of its exalted ballyhoo. Some are still unconvinced, and will be waiting for reviews of the game before making any purchasing decisions. Those people might be waiting a while.
During his long career, the Batman has faced impossible odds. Being buried alive, a broken back, various death-traps and super-powered foes. But today, the Dark Knight faces his greatest challenge yet: Dark Souls 2.
What’s new is old again, amirite? Tomb Raider hit shelves last year on various consoles and PC to widespread acclaim. Nearly a year later, and the game is back in action, with some new-gen shine. Here’s what the critics have to say.
Those who have been following me on twitter must now know that my kids have become obsessed with Minecraft. It’s all they seem to want to do now and I spend half my parenting life trying to get them to go outside and swim or something… I’ve become my mother.
For those of you who prefer the opinions of your fellow gamers over those of professional game critics up in their ivory towers, user reviews are where its at. For many gamers, those often illegible, barely constructed sentences filled with caps and racial epithets offer greater insights in to games’ worth than those of the people who’re paid to critique. And now, those will be available on Steam.
Recently Indiegamingmag hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons when they changed their review policy to now request a $50 payment if you want your indie game reviewed.
In life, there are few certainties. Death, taxes and having a massively muscled behemoth clotheslining your body out of the ring, are just a few examples. Here’s what the critics have to say so far about WWE 2K14.
All your favorite Final Fantasy characters thrown together with the magical world of Disney - so much nostalgia! The original Kingdom Hearts was released in 2002, and now it's been tarted up for an HD update. What could possibly go wrong?
Disney Infinity may have launched already in the good ol’ US of A, but surprisingly, few sites have actually reviewed the game. I’m forking out some of my own cash for a starter pack, so expect videos and impressions soon. If you can’t wait for my humbly influential opinion though, here’s what those other websites had to say about the game.
We’ve seen plenty of great games so far this year. The Last of Us, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Injustice, Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance again. We’ve also seen some that are downright terrible and smell like Batman & Robin. But Ride to Hell: Retribution just might be the worst of the lot.
You don’t have to go far to hear about how bad Metacritic is for the gaming industry. Kotaku recently wrote a great piece about it and Adam Sessler also had some good points in his recent video. This isn’t a new complaint either, IGN covered it a year ago and so have countless other sites.
Ninja Theory’s westernised reboot of Capcom’s stylish hack-and-slash Devil May Cry has been pretty divisive. Long time fans aren’t particularly enthused about Dante being an angsty, emo teen. Their bitching and moaning seems to have all been for naught though; it seems the reboot hasn’t divided critics who’re full of praise for the game. Here’s what reviewers had to say.
