Far Cry Primal review

Hurkamania Hurk is an unusual tradition. The bearded, yelping Southern man pops up in both of the last two Far Cry games. In Primal we meet Hurki, his prehistoric forebear, an aspiring inventor and the game’s comic relief. His best joke? He speaks the same made-up caveman language as everyone …

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 review

Sticky situation Fighting earns coins, coins buy stickers granting support items, cosmetic goods and new heroes. Good news: real money isn’t involved and coins flow freely – you can buy a new hero every 90 minutes. The downside is tying consumable AI soldiers and turrets to stickers – both add …

Bravely Second: End Layer review

The fighting has been tweaked since the last entry to make things simpler. You can now save presets to make switching Jobs far easier, and if you kill all of your opponents in one turn you can challenge a second wave straight away for a greater reward, which comes in …

Rocket League review (Xbox One)

All’s fair in physics, too. Rocket League’s ball is the most important object in the game – but it can’t be reasoned with outside of a tap from your car. Once you’ve given it a nudge, it’s gonna go where it’s gonna go. The joy of Rocket League is in …

Fire Emblem Fates review

Birthright? Conquest? What now? Aside from sharing a brief introduction (which you can skip on subsequent playthroughs) and the same cast of characters (which appear in totally different contexts), both Birthright and Conquest are unique, full adventures – expect to spend at least 30 hours in each. You can download …

Street Fighter 5 review

Free market Holding out for Super Hyper Ultra Street Fighter 5: Turbo Wonder Edition? Don’t. There will be no traditional expansions this time. Instead, Street Fighter 5’s additional characters will be drip-fed into the roster as incremental updates. And in theory, you won’t have to pay for any of them. …

Layers of Fear review

Anything can make you jump. A loud noise and a sudden movement? That’s brute force horror and takes no real skill. Easy. Try it with a friend (maybe one you don’t like that much). However, to make you doubt yourself? To be left afraid because you can’t trust your own …

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia review

Killer style Though it may look a little monochrome at first glance, Chronicles Russia’s version of the mini-series’ watercolor art style fits gorgeously with the setting it’s trying to create. Giving the entire world a stark, dreary look with vibrant splashes of red for drama (and built-in path guidance), Chronicles …

Unravel review

Put a string on it Unravel creator Martin Sahlin actually crafted Yarny when he was on a camping trip in the Swedish countryside with his family. In a tale so indie it hurts, he built the character from wool and wire. “I wanted to share a piece of home I …

Firewatch review

Turt Reynolds? There’s a turtle that you can adopt and name – I chose Turt Reynolds from the list of options because of course anyone would. I actually found two of them, which did live in the same box in the watchtower, but whether there are any more (or if …
