WATCH DOGS 2 REVIEW

Hackers are often portrayed as computer savants hunched over a keyboard, sucking down a Diet Coke, and writing script faster than the characters can appear on a dirty CRT. They’re performing sorceries a half-step removed from actual magic, exploiting people and systems without leaving the [...]

STEEP REVIEW

Steep’s dramatic recreation of the Swiss Alps is enormous. Activate the map view and you can fly around a vast 3D model of its snowy peaks, then pick a drop point and transition seamlessly into the game. The technology is impressive, and being able to hop around this colossal open-world without [...]

Dressed in huge suits of power armour—part high-tech defensive shell, part sarcophogus—these monstrous genetically-modified humans [...]

As an RPG, Dwarves wants you to make choices to explore the world of its characters, but as a slavish recreation of a well-known book, it is constantly taking [...]

THE WALKING DEAD: A NEW FRONTIER EPISODE ONE AND TWO REVIEW

If the Walking Dead TV show can’t decide whether it wants to be a dark, maudlin drama or a schlocky, gory thrill-ride, Telltale’s interactive adaptation has established a more consistent voice that allows room for a bit of both without leaving you suffering from tonal whiplash. Its problem is that [...]
