The Evil Within Review

Posted by Dylan Burns On Wednesday 22 October 2014ADD COMMENTS

Available on PS4, XBO, PS3, 360 and PC l Published by Bethesda Softworks l Developed by Tango Gameworks l Classified R18+ l Supports 1 player

REVIEW IN BRIEF > When horror “master” Shinji Mikami makes a new game, players listen. The Evil Within embraces all the tropes of the genre, presenting an experience that is as dank and disturbing as it is awkward and frustrating.

Posted by Matthew Hewson On Tuesday 21 October 2014ADD COMMENTS

Available on XBO, PS4, Wii U, 360, PS3, Wii l Published by Activision l Developed by Toys for Bob with Beenox l Classified G l Supports 1-2 players

Minimum won’t win any awards for pushing the envelope but it never really tries to. If you can cope with art design that feels a little soulless, this is the perfect game to play after a long day of work with limited time. Read the rest of this entry »

Hatoful Boyfriend Review

Posted by Joel Guttenberg On Thursday 2 October 2014ADD COMMENTS

Available on PC l Published by Devolver Digital l Developed by Mediatonic and PigeoNation Inc l Unclassified l Supports 1 player

REVIEW IN BRIEF > Computer games are often about placing yourself in the shoes of another person, and seeing things from their perspective. This can allow you to experience unique stories and even worlds that you may not have imagined before.  Ladies and gentlemen, Hatoful Boyfriend is something that you have almost certainly never imagined before. It’s an interactive story, a pigeon dating simulator, and possibly more interesting than first appearances suggest. Read the rest of this entry »
