The Crew: Calling All Units PS4 review

Two years after release and Ubisoft’s open-world racer, The Crew, still feels fresh. It was a formidable game from the start, getting players to form crews and pitting them against one another.  Against the backdrop of a full narrative campaign the game was one of the first to blur the line between the multiplayer and single experience. Continue reading The Crew: Calling All Units PS4 review

Moto Racer 4 PlayStation 4 review

Compared to the Ride or MotoGP games, Moto Racer 4 is a pretty easy-going arcade motorcycle game. It wants you to have a good time rather than conquer the steep learning curve usually favoured by two-wheeled racers. Depending on your personal preference, this is either a good thing or a bad thing. Continue reading Moto Racer 4 PlayStation 4 review

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare PlayStation 4 Pro review

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is many things.

The developers have chosen a simple concept, one that suits VR more than it would as a traditional game, and it works. Continue reading Eagle Flight VR PlayStation 4 review

Planet Coaster PC review

Rollercoaster Tycoon is back! Well, it is, but this is not it. This is Planet Coaster, from the same guys that did Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 and 3. And it’s a cracker. Continue reading Planet Coaster PC review

Dishonored 2 PlayStation 4 review

Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios invite us to return to the bizarre steampunk world of Dishonored for more stealth, assassinations and slaughtered whales.

Dishonored 2 opens fifteen years after the events in the first game.  Continue reading Dishonored 2 PlayStation 4 review

You’ve got the whole world in your hands: Google Earth VR review

“You’ll believe a man could fly” stated the cinema poster of 1978’s Superman: The Movie.

Well, if you are prepared to spend the best part of NZ$3500 on an HTC Vive and the required high-spec PC, now you can. All thanks to Google. Continue reading You’ve got the whole world in your hands: Google Earth VR review
