The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Review

Traveller’s Tales has done a pretty good job with licenses over the years. They’ve turned a toy line in LEGO into one of the most adored and enjoyable gaming franchises over the past three years with LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Indiana Jones. With The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, TT have once again developed […]

Pure Review

Over the past few years, off-road racing games have constantly taken a back seat to the more impressive and prestigious street-racing and sim racing titles like Forza, Project Gotham and Gran Turismo. Earlier this generation we had the very attractive and accessible launch title for the Playstation 3 in Motorstorm that seemed to generate an […]

One year on, why not buy a Vita?

Over the Christmas break, the Vita turned one in Japan. In Australia, we’ve had the device in our hands for eleven months, and we’ve watched as the price quietly dropped a whole heap as no one bought the damn thing. But the Vita is a damn neat little system, a consistently impressive machine, and one […]

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode Review

Minecraft: Story Mode isn’t something most Minecraft fans or anyone remotely familiar with Mojang’s behemoth sandbox game could have guessed when it was first announced at the tail-end of 2014. An episodic adventure set in a series where the only story is the one personally crafted by the player is a hard thing to imagine, […]

Life is Strange: Episode 4 – Dark Room Review

Episode 4 of Life is Strange begins and ends with a heavy dose of emotion, reminding me why protagonist Max Caulfield is one of my favourite game characters in a long time. But it succumbs to retreading old ground, as the penultimate episode is trapped between progressing the story and setting it up for a […]

LEGO Dimensions Review

LEGO Dimensions is the first toys-to-life effort from Traveller’s Tales and Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and arguably, at first glance, the most enticing. The genre was established by Skylanders in 2011 and since popularised by Disney Infinity and Nintendo’s amiibos, the late-to-the-party Dimensions employs a unique twist: the player gets actual LEGO figures with the […]

Just Dance Review

Just Dance is the most innocent of modern video game franchises, and for that it’s always had my respect. The glory days of dancing games are fading, but Ubisoft keeps everyone grooving along, having fun with music. In a market saturated with shooters and violent games, it’s nice to have something a little more casual. […]

Guitar Hero Live Review

Like an aging ‘70s band that’s reformed after decades of squallering in mediocrity with hopes of recapturing ‘that magic spark’, Guitar Hero reemerges from the five-year hangover it’s been suffering since its fiery demise. But rather than just ‘getting the band back together’, Activision and developer FreeStyleGames have retooled and rebranded the franchise, swapping out […]
