Rock Band 4 Review

Crooning, beefcake pop sensation Thom Yorke once sang, “whatever makes you happy, whatever you want”. You get the impression that this was in the minds of Harmonix when they made Rock Band 3. An almost embarrassingly deep pool of riches, its breadth would have surely marked the end of the plastic instrument phenomenon if the …

Once Upon a Great A’Tuin – Revisiting Discworld

He entertained millions of readers with his wonderfully satirical, bitingly incisive and always humanistic series of novels. He is greatly missed. “What does Terry Pratchett have to do with computer games?” you may ask. Well, in 1995, his Discworld novels formed the basis for an adventure game titled simply “Discworld”. The game saw the wizard …

Watch Dogs Review

Every gamer must know about Watch Dogs by now. It has been the focus of all kinds of discussion, controversy and even the focal point of mockery in many corners. Why?

When next gen consoles were announced, gamers were treated to some excellent looking games, many with some excellent graphical upgrades, such as Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and Battlefield 4. As well as some new additions to …

The Saints are back and are throwing any little bit of sense right out of the window. Volition have taken the Saints brand far beyond anything that seemed reasonable, but is it for the best? Yes! Saints Row IV is the game that you first imagined when you were introduced to the concept of open …

Persona 4: The Animation

For the past couple of years I’ve become obsessed with the Persona series. And oddly it didn’t start because of any of the games themselves. It started with a little video series called the “Endurance Run”. A video series produced by Giantbomb where two guys (Jeff and Vinny) played through the entirety of Persona 4, …

All-Star Baseball 2002 review

It’s quite easy to sum up what we at Gamestyle know about rounders, it can be done in one word: nothing. However as I went to the Boardwalk & Baseball theme park in Florida a good few years back I was the most qualified to give judgement on the latest release from Acclaim.
