9 / 10.0 - Dark Souls III
Apr 11, 2016

Dark Souls 3 isn't here to redesign the formula or to reimagine the way the Souls games play. Instead, it's refined the game style that FromSoftware have been experimenting with since Demon's Souls and it honestly feels like they've found the perfect balance between the style of each games. Borrowing a bit of the speed from Bloodbourne and mixing that with the gothic, oppressive atmosphere of Demon's Souls and the core gameplay of Dark Souls and DS2 has made for a beautiful distillation of what looks to be one of the most successful hack and slash RPGs of modern gaming, a greatest hits package of the best Souls has to offer.

All in all, despite a few tedious moments and some strange design choices, The Division excels at delivering a paranoid, distrustful world full of ambivalence and moral dichotomy along with an extremely enjoyable RPG experience. If you're looking for a solid shooter experience then I'd say maybe this isn't the game for you. If you enjoyed Destiny or love MMO games but wish they were a bit more action based then The Division will provide you hours upon hours of fantastic gameplay. Just make sure you have your buddies or that you find other players to play with in order to really get the full experience.

Dying Light: The Following is an expansion that harkens back to the days where DLC and micro-transactions weren't so rife in the industry and add on content actually provided meaningful weight to a game rather than just a few new guns and a few new maps. The add-on is actually slightly bigger than the base campaign so there's a ton of value for money here. If you didn't like Dying Light, you're not going to like The Following but if you're still sitting on the fence or you're interested in smashing some more zombie skulls with all the visually stunning gore that Dying Light: The Following has to offer, then I don't know what you're doing still reading this and not playing it. All in all, the expansion is well worth the price and a really excellent addition to an immensely enjoyable game.

Overall Street Fighter V is extremely playable, responsive and looks great and is a really strong entry in the Street Fighter franchise. The game that has been released today is the one designed for people who want to play online, for those of us who enjoy the stories and challenge modes, there's still some time to wait.

8.5 / 10.0 - XCOM 2
Feb 13, 2016

Firaxis have made tremendous strides to provide new mechanics and gameplay options for players who are still unsure what the XCOM series can offer them whilst retaining all the features that fans of Enemy Unknown have grown to love and now expect from the series. XCOM 2 is more than just a fantastic XCOM game, it's a polished and cohesive AAA experience that shines with a level of quality not often felt in these bleak, modern days.
