    by Ian Collen
    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands (Xbox Series X) Review
    The Borderlands spin-off featuring the series’ greatest creation isn’t quite perfect, but it is a gloriously silly blast of shooter-looter action powered by a stellar voice cast.

    Elden Ring (Xbox Series X) Review
    Believe the hype. Elden Ring is arguably FromSoftware’s best adventure yet and one that Dark Souls veterans and newcomers alike can get effortlessly lost in.

    Martha is Dead (Xbox Series X) Review

    by Ian Collen
    Martha is Dead (Xbox Series X) Review
    An intriguingly twisted story that is just a little too willing to dive into the horrifying darkness rather than embracing its strengths.

    Rainbow Six Extraction (Xbox Series X) Review
    It may feel a little bite-sized compared to previous R6 titles, but Extraction offers a fresh co-op PvE spin on things that delivers an absorbing risk-reward experience.

    Halo Infinite (Xbox Series X) Review
    Master Chief returns to Zeta Halo with a few extra tricks up his sleeve for a romp through an open-world campaign that's impressively cinematic and free-flowing fun. The free multiplayer experience adds thrilling action too with more modes and maps to come.

    Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (PS5) Review

    by Rik Henderson
    Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (PS5) Review
    It's great to revisit the streets of Liberty City, Vice City and the multiple locations in San Andreas. Added to the great stories and acting are new combat and movement controls from GTA: V and some nice looking textures in 4K. Unfortunately, no amount of nostalgic, rose-tinted fuzziness can skirt the fact there are loads of bugs and some odd remastering choices.

    Battlefield 2042 (Xbox Series X) Review
    Focusing purely on multiplayer, with up to 128 players causing unbridled chaos across PCs and new-gen consoles, 2042 certainly delivers on spectacle; but when it comes to the actual gameplay it’s a little more hit and miss…

    Call of Duty: Vanguard (PS5) Review
    It's good to be back in the WWII fray with a punchy, great-looking campaign mode employing a number of strategies and gameplay styles. There's a slightly underwhelming multiplayer mode but the zombies make up for it.

    Guardians of the Galaxy (PS5) Review
    After the po-faced and worthy The Avengers, Square Enix shifts gear to an altogether more light-hearted and bants filled experience for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which maintains a decidedly old school single player approach. And remember, don't call them 'Plucky', they don't know what it means,...
