4.5 / 5.0 - NBA 2K15
Oct 22, 2014

Overall NBA 2K15 is an excellent game packed with a variety of features that will easily keep you busy up until the inevitable 2K16 release next year. Where the game shines the most is undoubtedly its presentation and gameplay physics. The career mode alone has enough drama to keep you entertained and coming back for more, but most importantly the entire game is fun to play and never ceases to impress you even after long periods of play. Fans of the NBA should be rather satisfied with the latest offering from 2K, and even if you are not a fan of Basketball, I'd still recommend checking the game out.

3 / 5.0 - Driveclub
Oct 28, 2014

DriveClub is a beautiful disappointment. Beautiful because of the tracks and locations, and a disappointment for pretty much everything else. It's not worth the retail fee, and if you're a Playstation Plus member you will eventually be able to download it for free, but of course it will be missing a few features that are included in the full paid version. My advice would be just to wait for the free version if you're desperate for a racing sim on the PS4. It's not an awful game but feel free to skip this one as you're not missing much.

4.5 / 5.0 - Far Cry 4
Nov 22, 2014

With the possibility that anything can, and will happen in Far Cry 4, it makes Ubisoft Montreal's latest inclusion in the series an essential purchase. Granted, even though Far Cry 4 is very much a prettier version of Far Cry 3, it is still incredibly entertaining. The bar was set so high with Far Cry 3, that even though there are numerous similarities between the two games, Far Cry 4 and  Kyrati is still worthy of your exploration. Ubisoft will however now face a dilemma with the undoubted arrival of Far Cry 5 in the future because they will know they've exhausted the general plot of both games. To have another story of a liberating American traveller will unlikely sit well with the community of fans the Far Cry series has, and creating a brand new experience that betters both Far Cry 3 and 4 will be tricky. Nevertheless, Far Cry 4 is an enjoyable, exhilarating thrill ride full of enough entertainment to keep you happy. Just be nice to the elephants!

2.5 / 5.0 - The Order: 1886
Mar 7, 2015

Overall, I don't think you'll be missing out if you didn't experience The Order 1886. Weighing up the pros and cons results in a heavy tip towards the cons, and with that I would say save your money for something else. There was so much potential surrounding The Order, yet it hasn't lived up to the expectations. On a positive note, there is the scope for a sequel, or prequel that if it can utilize the good aspects of this effort, and incorporate some fun, then maybe we'll have reason to feel excited about visiting this world another time.

Overall, Toy Soldiers: War Chest isn't a bad game by any stretch of the imagination, it's just probably not worth adding to your collection.

4 / 5.0 - FIFA 16
Oct 12, 2015

With EA reworking much of FIFA's gameplay and mechanics, there are going to be FIFA fans who will struggle initially when playing the game. Personally, I welcome the change in mechanics. I haven't struggled with the game, though the legendary setting is slightly more challenging than it was in FIFA 15. Overall FIFA 16 is a very good game, and an improvement on last year's offering.

Primal Carnage: Extinction doesn't overly satisfy, but it at least gives you the opportunity to take control of a selection of legendary dinosaurs. There's not much depth to be found, and although it is not a terrible game, there's only enough here to hold your attention for a few hours or so. Unfortunately, this one is just another entry into the already well stocked pile of mediocre dinosaur games.

2.5 / 5.0 - Beyond: Two Souls
Dec 6, 2015

Whether choosing to play it in random or chronological order, neither of these options make it a compelling story.
