Pole Position - Why F1 2018 Is Shaping Up To Be The Series’ Best

The officially licensed Formula One games by Codemasters have, somewhat unexpectedly, been some of the best and most faithful video game sports titles in recent memory. With a combination of passion, dedication and good old-fashioned development knowhow, each successive F1 title iterates on the last, creating a series that’s true to its source material without sacrificing enjoyment on the altar…

Tour De France 2018 Leads The Cycling Pack On PS4

One of the many beautiful things about video games is wish fulfilment. We can be things we probably won’t be in real life; stalwart vampire hunters, gallant explorers and crack-shot snipers. Sports games are especially good at this, allowing us to fulfil our childhood dreams of playing for FC Barcelona or wearing that coveted Tour de France yellow jersey. If…

Q.U.B.E 2 Review

I very rarely see myself as someone who particularly enjoys puzzle games. That is, until I play something exceptionally innovative and original, like Portal, Monument Valley or indeed Tetris. QUBE2 has definitely made it onto that special list of puzzle games that I start playing and don’t stop playing until my eyes feel like they’re no longer attached to my…

Burnout Paradise Remastered Review

“Take me down to the paradise city/Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty”. So goes the first line of “Paradise City” by Guns’n’Roses, the opening chords of which are the first thing you’ll hear when you fire up Burnout Paradise Remastered (and indeed the original Burnout Paradise). Well, we’re not sure about grass or girls, but Criterion…

Detroit: Become Human Review

It’s a favourite pastime of ours to compare how we’d do in a zombie apocalypse. Many long hours have passed in heated debate, but suffice it to say none of us are sure we’d really fare that well. Thing is, though, zombie apocalypses are passé these days. When we imagine how the world as we know it will end now,…

ArmaGallant: Decks of Destiny Review

Almost a year on from its initial release, ArmaGallant: Decks of Destiny is a struggling title. In its own words, it’s a MORPG where a player “creates a battle deck to bring to fast paced real time strategy battles”. It follows on from the success of other popular MMORPGs, such as league of legends and Dota 2, with its generally…

Monster Energy Supercross Review

Monster Energy Supercross is a motorcycle racing game on the Playstation 4. The game features official tracks and actual athletes from the sport, much like other games of this type. The game has a special edition which includes the original game as well as a season pass. There’s a story mode and an online mode. Players are also able to…

Railway Empire Review

Railway Empire is a Tycoon-like game but for trains. The game takes place in the United States in 1863. The player’s job is to build railroads, particularly the historic Transcontinental railroad. One of the first things I notice about a game is the quality, or lack thereof, of it’s voice acting. Railway Empire has good quality voice acting. During the…

Cities: Skylines Review

It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that, since its release on PC in March 2015, Cities: Skylines has been something of a revelation. Almost two years to the day after it came out, it was announced that over 3.5 million copies had been sold. The publishers, Paradox Interactive, aren’t exactly unknowns, but those numbers are normally the realm…

Gran Turismo Sport Review

Polyphony Digital have never really been a developer who liked to rush things. Their last title – Gran Turismo 6 – came out nearly four years ago, and was developed entirely for the PS3 despite the fact that the PS4 had already been released. In fact, in the 20 years that the Gran Turismo series has been going now, they’ve…

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Review

If you played the first Wolfenstein game, you know that it’s one of the best single-player first-person shooter available on the market. You can expect the same awesome gameplay from the second Wolfenstein game, but magnified. This game offers a great story, cast, and well-developed characters to add depth and context. It’s a good mix of terrifying, challenging, and fun…

Project CARS 2 Review

There was a huge amount of excitement around the original Project CARS game. Much of this came from the fact that it was mostly crowdfunded (to the tune of a hefty $3million), instead of being backed by one of the big publishers, which in turn led developers Slightly Mad Studios to drip-feed tidbits and updates to their backers and those…

FIFA 18 PS4 Review

Not so long ago, FIFA’s dominance seemed unassailable. Having previously been the choice for more “serious” football fans, the quality of Pro Evolution Soccer games – FIFA’s longstanding rival – tailed off dramatically with the switch from PS2 to PS3. [easyazon_image align="centre" cart="y" cloak="y" height="350" identifier="B072QG6SWM" locale="US" localize="y" nf="y" src="https://www.ps4home.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/51k27BiLd5L.jpg" tag="ps4playstation-20" width="250"] Recently, however, we’ve seen several progressively stronger releases…

Madden NFL 18 Review

Another season of the NFL has gotten underway. And as we all know, a new NFL season means a new Madden game. EA Sports have been making Madden games since 1988, and they’ve been released annually since 1990. That’s a whole lot of time to try and keep a franchise fresh, and it’s true that – at certain points –…

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Review

A very few, select series have been inextricably tied to the PlayStation, and have become iconic for the brand: God of War, Crash Bandicoot (in the early days), Gran Turismo, Jak and Daxter, and so on. The Uncharted franchise inarguably belongs on this list. There have already been four entries in the main series, along with a handful of secondary…

Everybody’s Golf Review

You may not be familiar with the Everybody’s Golf series, even though Japanese developer Clap Hanz has been making them for nearly two decades now. That’s because, in the west, the games have been called ‘Hot Shots Golf’ instead. The switch to calling the latest, (PS4-exclusive) release ‘Everybody’s Golf’ feels somehow right. Because really, there is something here for absolutely…

Cars 3: Driven to Win Review

Cars 3: Driven to Win is the movie tie-in game for Disney's Cars 3 and is certainly a title worth thinking about for fans of the Pixar series. It's essentially a smooth 3rd person racer with some crunchy shooting elements sprinkled into the mix with simple, easy to grasp driving mechanics for younger players. But don't be fooled because this…

Micro Machines World Review

If you’ve got fond memories of the original Micro Machines, then you may well be interested in taking a look at this new version by Codemasters. Unlike some previous efforts, this game is fully licensed by Hasbro so you’ll have the familiar Micro Machines design but given a facelift for the more modern console.  Epic game graphics will grab the…

Prey Review

Prey is a game I might describe as attempting to be a spiritual successor to System Shock. Some people prefer to liken it to Bioshock, but I disagree. Prey shares more in common with System Shock 2 than anything, with Arkane’s own Dishonored franchise thrown into the mix for good measure. A similar sci-fi horror setting makes for a superficial…

MXGP3: A Step In The Right Direction

It's easy to become sceptical or perhaps even cynical about annual Motorsport games. They often stick to the same recipe every year with few changes in terms of gameplay, focusing more on new locations and perhaps new vehicles. However, Milestone seek to rid us of our cynicism in a number of ways with their latest official Motocross videogame release, MXGP3.…

Project Cars Game of the Year Edition Review

The world of simulated racing has always been a rather inclusive one. Household names have been made of incredibly accurately portrayed Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo beginning in the late 90's. Many have tried and failed to live up to the expectations set by these very talented developers. One company has tried and succeeded again and again, even getting their…
