Review : Hitman 2

Review : Hitman 2

The Hitman franchise has always been hit or miss for me (no pun intended). While I've always loved the premise, the execution (geez, this might be difficult) wasn't always sound. However, with the release of the rebooted Hitman on current generation consoles in 2016, the series stepped into entirely new…

Review : Beat Saber VR

Review : Beat Saber VR

I'm tired. Not from lack of sleep or because I overindulged in Thanksgiving dinner, which I did. It's because of Beat Saber, the new PSVR game from Hyperbolic Magnetism. Originally released earlier this year on Steam, it's finally made its way to the PlayStation. The game challenges you to slash…

Review : Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Review : Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Going into Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, I had tempered my expectations based on what I saw prior to release. Much to my surprise, it surpassed nearly every one of them. The combat is smooth, intuitive and brutal. The story was serviceable, what I’ve come to expect from Assassin’s Creed games, but…

Review : Super Mario Party

I'm sitting here with my family on a giant interactive game board game playing as, of course, Bowser. Roll my dice. 10! I'm going to own this game! Let's check my choices. One route, unlucky space. No thank you. The other route, unlucky space. Crap. And so it goes nearly…

Review : Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Review : Shadow of the Tomb Raider

I was never the biggest fan of Tomb Raider in its PlayStation heydays, but when the reboot released in 2013 I was immediately hooked. The sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, released two years later in 2015 by Crystal Dynamics was even more exciting. Which brings us to 2018, where…

Review : God of War

From the opening menu you are taken on a journey that you will never forget. At times you feel as if you are playing through a movie. It's a feeling I haven't had since playing the Last of Us from last generation. There’s an amazing story told here, and if…

Review : Everybody’s Golf : Hole-In-One

https://youtu.be/per6vny6XDQ The Hot Shots Golf franchise and I go back a long way. I began playing the titles on the PlayStation 2 with Hot Shots Golf 3, but the series itself began in 1997 on the original PlayStation. However, it’s been over five years since the last entry, World Invitational,…

Review : F1 2017

Review : F1 2017

Codemasters Birmingham ups the ante with their newest entry for the 2017 F1 season. In last year’s review we talked about how the updates that were desperately needed from 2015’s bare bones attempt made an impact with 2016 release. Not only does 2017 evolve from 2016, it sets up all…
