Following another zombification epidemic Deadlight takes us along for the ride with Randall Wayne, a tortured survivor seeking out his lost family. The narrative picks up as he is separated from a small group of survivors and the actual mission of the game is spent reuniting with them. Taking account of its roots the game fondly brings to mind such classics as Flashback or Prince of Persia, a flick screen platform driven game where you navigate pretty much from left to right or occasionally up and down.
Deadlight is a beautiful game there is no way around that, the animation is fluid and the environments reek of atmosphere.
I love it when a game blindsides me. I knew of Spec Ops although I had not paid much attention to it, I didn’t even know it was a third person shooter until I fired it up. That was when I got very pleasantly surprised, for once we are looking at a war based shooter with some sense of magnitude, a game that makes you think about your actions and delivers more than its fair share of sombre moments. It is also not often I feel the need to fully complete a game before committing to a review, but this time – I just had to know. Continue reading
When I was a boy I played games on my Amiga, one of them was Carrier Command combining strategy, action, simulation and above all imagination. Many games of that era stay in our minds, but Carrier Command is something that held a special place and to see it getting this kind of revision really is exciting.Roll on September 27th!

As somebody that was very impressed with Lord of the Rings : War in the North, I was pleasantly surprised by this announcement. Admittedly there is nothing much on the website and it is a last minute hurrah before E3 opens its doors, but even without the Snowblind team behind it if the combat is anywhere near as satisfying as WitN was…well 5 vs 5 fantasy combat has to be your bag. Press release and website after the break. Continue reading
No images or further details and no apology for a direct copy of the press release, but this is interesting and I’m in a rush…

The final installment for owners of the Gears of War Season Pass certainly improves over the Fenix Rising pack, but does it match the lofty heights of Raam’s Shadow? Continue reading
The latest addition to the GOW Season Pass is aimed squarely at gamers with too much time on their hands. The theme of the pack is along the lines of embellishing the Marcus Fenix legend and is effectively a map-pack with a few extras. While this is not a bad thing, after the wealth of content we got with Raam’s Shadow it feels a little light. Continue reading
Well, I think we need no introductions here.
Sonic has been around forever and the spiky blue hedgehog has survived a career spanning multiple platforms well, and is still wooing the market today. As a gamer that falls into the ‘older’ categories with a penchant for Retro and a respect for classics, I wonder then at the need to bring such a game as Sonic CD back from the dead. Continue reading
