[REVIEW] LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

If you’ve been visiting High Score Reviews for a decent period of time then you’ll be well aware of my fondness for Traveler’s Tales’ LEGO games. For a series that really has no right to be as good as it is – let alone after 673 (est.) entries – it’s quite remarkable how much love and attention continues to go into their creation. LEGO...

There’s little point underpinning this review with any sort of tension: if you enjoyed Horrible Bosses, you will enjoy Horrible Bosses 2. As a sequel to one of the unlikely box office success stories of 2011, Horrible Bosses 2 shamelessly plays to exactly the same crowd that liked the original. Director Sean Anders (We’re The Millers) is happy to admit that the...

[REVIEW] Never Alone

NAHEAD
on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 | By Bryan Dull

Games that tell a unique story can be very rare in this industry, and fortunately thanks to independent developers, we have a greater chance to play games that speak to us on another level. Some of the best games that have come out from Indy developers are atmospheric and sometimes tell a story without a single word  being uttered, but we still manage to become invested in...

[REVIEW] Briquid Mini

on Sun, Nov 16, 2014 | By Ian Childs

I like feeling clever. It doesn’t happen very often but when it does it’s often via a puzzle game, and that cuts to the heart of why I play them. It’s for that lightbulb moment when you finish a level that had been bugging you for 30 seconds/5 minutes/3 days, that momentary smugness that envelopes you before starting the next level. It is the ability to...

[TECH REVIEW] SteelSeries Rival Mouse

The Rival is the latest offering from the SteelSeries portfolio, and it does not disappoint. First Look Upon first look, the Rival has a sleek and contoured design which is favourable to right-handed gamers. SteelSeries have stated they went back to the drawing board with classic gaming mice in mind to create “the ultimate solution in ergonomic feel” – and they’ve done...

[REVIEW] Just Dance 2015

This year has been pretty poor for Ubisoft with many of its big titles having not lived up to the hype. Just Dance 2015 however, is fun for all the family in a neat and easy to follow package. It’s hard to review dance games in my opinion, certainly when they’re not massively innovative, as they’re always a good laugh to play and mess around with but are rarely groundbreaking...

[REVIEW] Assassin’s Creed Unity

on Tue, Nov 11, 2014 | By Tom Acres

November guarantees us colder weather, longer nights, the unveiling of the John Lewis Christmas advert and, most inevitably of all, a new Assassin’s Creed. In fact this year we have two: Rogue for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Unity for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unity is the one Ubisoft really needs to deliver, as they look to launch their most popular...

[NEWS] ‘Battletoads’ Releasing on Xbox?

on Mon, Nov 10, 2014 | By Bryan Dull

It looks like all those prank phone calls to GameStop may actually become legitimate as Microsoft has filed a trademark for ‘Battletoads’ with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Hopefully this is a sign that Microsoft is using their acquisition of Rare more to their benefit as we have gotten a new ‘Killer Instinct’ game so far. Perhaps we...

[FEATURE] The Walking Dead: When Story Structure Becomes Obvious

on Mon, Nov 10, 2014 | By Bryan Dull

*Possible Spoilers* I am not going to go into the plot of last night’s episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ that aired on November 9th. I will not get into comparing the show to the comic that the show is based on. Instead I will lead with one simple question that will probably influence your decision to continue reading on… “Are you tired of the cast being broke apart...

[FILM REVIEW] Interstellar

on Sun, Nov 9, 2014 | By Paul Balaji

Christopher Nolan has a pretty decent record in film. We all know him as the director of The Dark Knight Trilogy, but he was also responsible for a few other interesting films. Films that introduced a new concept and gave enough expansion of that concept to tell a good story. Interstellar could have made it into that category of Memento, Inception and The Dark Knight, if only...

[REVIEW] Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Halo has always been Xbox’s most important franchise. 2001’s Halo: Combat Evolved for the original Xbox was probably the reason Microsoft’s first console wasn’t a flop at launch. It was also an incredibly important game in the history of shooters: it showed that an FPS could work well on console partly thanks to the Xbox’s two thumb-sticks (with the exception of...
