[REVIEW] Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

COD
on Wed, Nov 26, 2014 | By Joshua Lawrence

Call of Duty is a franchise that has grown to the highest of highs and has slowly started to fall kicking and punching on its way down, but Advanced Warfare has been put forward as a game changer for the franchise with its new game mechanics and Sledgehammer Games being in charge fully for the first time. So has it changed significantly? Is it a game changer that will bring...

A new gameplay trailer has surfaced for Rocksteady’s eagerly anticipated conclusion to their Arkham trilogy, Batman Arkham Knight, and it looks nothing sort of incredible. Check out the trailer here. Within the trailer are a multitude of new details regarding what we can expect when we finally get our hands on Arkham Knight. First of all, this new trailer just reiterates...

[NEWS] Dark Souls II Arrives on PS4/Xbox One in April 2015

on Tue, Nov 25, 2014 | By Bryan Dull

I will be honest for a moment; I have never played a Dark Souls game because of my fear that I would get so agitated with it, due to the difficulty, that I would break a controller for the first time in years. However, I have been told that I need to play to understand the obsession. The problem is that I have started losing interest in my PS3 because of my new consoles and...

Chances are you’ve already played GTA V on your Xbox 360 or PS3 and are considering upgrading to the current generation of consoles. Or you may have never played it before and are wondering if it’s finally time to take the plunge. If you’re in the latter camp, you won’t need to read further than this paragraph: GTA V was our 2013 game of the year and is one of the...

[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...

on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 | By Tom Acres

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

Untitled
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

on Fri, Nov 14, 2014 | By Jeremy Wilks

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

on Wed, Nov 12, 2014 | By Joshua Lawrence

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...
