Madden NFL 19 review

As is now tradition, EA Sports heralds their new season of titles with the latest iteration of their Madden NFL franchise.

As a Brit with barely an understanding of rugby, American football (as opposed to “proper” football), used to be an incomprehensible muddle of huge men hugging and pushing each other over. A bizarre game, indeed. Continue reading Madden NFL 19 review

The Crew 2 PC review

Ivory Tower’s sequel to their successful 2014 racer ups the ante, taking the race to the skies and the sea, as well as the land. With the whole of the US as your playground, albeit a scaled-down version, The Crew 2 has all the right ingredients to be the ultimate racing game.

But does The Crew 2 really deliver? Continue reading The Crew 2 PC review

Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4-2600 review

I’ve been quite happy using Crucial’s Ballistix memory, but when it comes to showing off your PC rig, illumination is where it’s at.

Onrush PlayStation 4 review

Codemasters have been producing top-notch racing games for years now. In the main these have been grounded affairs like their Dirt, Grid and Formula One franchises. Onrush throws all that realism out the window in favour of heart-in-mouth racing mixed with more than a little bit of destruction. Continue reading Onrush PlayStation 4 review

Sony Xperia XA2 review

Sony’s Xperia mobile phones are classy devices and the Xperia XA2 is no exception. It’s not the best Xperia, and it is a bit chunky compared to its Samsung brethren, but it’s feature packed and feels, well, nice in the hand. Continue reading Sony Xperia XA2 review

Epson Workforce ET-16500 review

The Workforce ET-16500 A3 multi-function printer adds Epson’s EcoTank cartridge-free printing as an option for the small business/home office.

A3 printing is essential for most businesses. With the ET-16500 able to cope with printing and scanning up to A3+ sized paper, it’s unlikely that you’ll need a larger format printer for normal day-to-day operations. Continue reading Epson Workforce ET-16500 review
