F1 2017 Review

F1 2017 Review

When Xbox UK handed over review code for the latest Formula One game, Asiiya knew that they had the perfect man for the job. Unfortunately he was on holiday, so I’m doing it instead. Don’t get me wrong; I love racing games, and I’m no stranger to the digital world of F1 (dig around the… Show Me More

Sonic Mania: Our Review

Sonic Mania: Our Review

Sonic is still seen as major gaming mascot. Sega’s own ‘Mario’. His games defined the Megadrive generation and people still get excited with each new release. Yet, let’s be honest he is no Mario. Shocking a statement that might be, you only have to see the list of failed games which have come out under… Show Me More

Destiny 2: A Review

Destiny 2: A Review

Destiny 1 got a lot right. It proved that Halo wasn’t a fluke for Bungie, and that they really do know what they are doing when it comes to FPS games. For those of you who have read my articles on a range of sites, you will know that I’m a huge fan of the Bungie… Show Me More

The Surge: Review

The Surge: Review

It took me a while to decide whether or not I like The Surge, but one thing was clear from the beginning; The Surge does not like me. The comparisons to Dark Souls that you’ve almost certainly seen flying around are well-warranted and inevitable. This is a game where death waits around every corner, impatience… Show Me More

Prey: The Asiiya Review.

Prey: The Asiiya Review.

Life can be pretty stressful, can’t it? I’m sure that you, like me, sometimes wish for nothing more than to briefly transform into a roll of toilet tissue. Imagine; rolling around in 2-3 ply bliss, temporarily free of all the cares and worries that come with the human condition. Well, great news – Prey allows… Show Me More

Living with the Nintendo Switch

Living with the Nintendo Switch

In case you missed it, Nintendo released a new console/handheld hybrid called the Nintendo Switch. It’s currently selling like hot cakes (at a time which is traditionally slow for videogame sales), and it’s possible Nintendo have their MoJo back. But away from the hype, is the console worth it? Is it trying to be all things,… Show Me More

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Review

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Review

Marvel vs Capcom is an odd crossover (though not as odd as Disney vs Square Enix or, if you prefer, Kingdom Hearts). We’ve all become accustomed to it over the years though, and now playing any game in the series is as comfortable as wearing a pair of old, violent, cartoony slippers. This particular title… Show Me More

Halo Wars 2 Review

Halo Wars 2 Review

RTS games have been popping up on consoles now and again for decades, but their popularity – and the success of their implementation – would make for a mountain range of a line graph. We’re living in the space year 2017 now, though! We might not have a flying car each yet, but we’ve surely… Show Me More

Resident Evil 7 Review

Resident Evil 7 Review

So far as I can tell, Capcom have decided to give the Resident Evil series an earth-rendering shakeup for every third numbered sequel. Resident Evil 4 transformed the experience from a fairly slow paced one of various static camera angles and awkward controls to a more action oriented one, with a fixed over-the-shoulder camera and… Show Me More
