The eagerly awaited co-op crime caper delivers a healthy dose of pilferous fun but, as Colm finds, it's not without its shortcomings.

Game Review: Guacamelee!

Guacamelee! That's some good punnage. Guacamelee! is the third game from Drinkbox Studios, and Colm finds it only delightful.

Game Review: BioShock Infinite

In a world where most AAAs seem mortally afraid of spreading their wings, BioShock Infinite is an absolute wonder. Colm reviews.

Game Review: Lego City Undercover

Chase McCain and the rest of the Lego City PD attempt to take down an evil crimelord in a huge adventure. There's lots of driving, fighting, and detective-ing to be done as we get our hands on the Wii U exclusive.

Game Review: Crysis 3

Crysis 3 is a game that consistently seems as if it's setting itself up for something better, but it never quite delivers. Colm reviews.

Game Review: Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 suffers from the usual big-game-small-plot problem, but does that really matter a tap when its open-world options are so massive and immersive?

Game Review: Assassin’s Creed III

Jumping from church spires into 6 inches of hay, sticking daggers in necks and wearing hoodies... but this time, there's so much more to Assassin's Creed. Rú reviews.

As 343 Industries take the reins, can Halo 4 match the scope and success of its predecessors? With affectionate homage paid to everything that makes the Halo universe unique, we're going with "Yes".

Game Review: Hotline Miami

Novelty animal masks and shotguns for everyone! Ciarán dons a cheap white suit, shades and boat shoes to investigate the latest in psychedelic, bone-snapping, exit-wounding indie violence.

Game Review: Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

In 2082, humanity has resorted to flailing arms about a virtual cockpit like an epileptic seal. Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor presents an experience far from perfect, but completely unlike anything else out there.

Game Review: Lollipop Chainsaw

Zombies, pom-poms, paint, heavy metal, magic mushrooms, combine harvesters, report cards and rainbows all unite to prove that chainsaws are a girl’s best friend.



 
 
 
 
 
Max Payne 3

Game Review: Max Payne 3

Jaw-dropping visuals, intense gameplay and a plot that'd blow over in a strong wind; Max Payne is back and running the gauntlet yet again to sate our terrible bloodlust. Hasn't that man suffered enough?
