We will preview Game Preview games, or games that are otherwise unfinished. No score will be provided on previews of Game Preview or other unfinished titles.

Once upon a time, there was a team of developers who went by the name of 'Lionhead'. They introduced us to the world of Albion with its first outing of Fable, on the original Xbox back in 2004. As the years went by, they released more titles in the franchise, but to some, each release came with a curse: storytelling and gameplay were getting weaker. So, they try their hand at a Kinect-only game, which did not bode well for the fans of Fable. Their last and only hope came in the form of a free-to-play 1v4 MMO that seemed ... Read More »
Raiders of the Broken Planet by Spanish developers MercurySteam is their first foray since they split with partners Konami, in which they collaborated with to create Castlevania Lords of the Shadow. Raiders is a sci-fi 4v1 tactical third-person shooter that blends shooter-crawler with intense combat and stealth with a variety of ways to progress through a level. Set in the year 2267 A.D. - 25 million light years from Earth, the game takes place on the world known simply as the Broken Planet, where a substance named Aleph matter is being generated by the planets natural resources. Aleph so happens ... Read More »
It's about time a title like Jump Stars entered our midst. It's the first of its kind on Xbox One, but certainly not an Xbox first. Some of you may remember the classic original Xbox title Fuzion Frenzy? Or maybe its sequel on the Xbox 360? This is the nearest you will get to it on Xbox One, and this title sure is a blast. Set out in a wacky TV Show style, up to four players control little lovable blockheads jumping, pushing and dropping your way across a series of frantic mini-games to become the TV show champ and ...

The grind is real. But honestly, what did we expect from an RPG? No, you've not wandered into the wrong review by mistake. We've ploughed more hours than we care to think about into Mantis Burn Racing - out on 12 October on Xbox One - and if ever there was a simple-looking game that hides its considerable depths, Mantis Burn Racing is it. This is a (more or less) top down racer in the grand tradition, tracing its heritage back to Up 'N Down, Skidmarks, Super Sprint and other classics of that ilk. So, you know what to expect: light ...

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Brawlout is just the latest in an ever expanding line of Smash Brothers clones, and whilst that is true to some extent when you look on the surface, beneath that lies a whole different beast entirely... You see, Brawlout is aiming for a more skill determined playstyle as opposed to Smash's sheer insanity. To turn a phrase; Smash is for show, Brawlout is for a pro. Fortunately, it won't take you long reach that higher skill level. Taking on the developers Angry Mob Games at their EGX stand, I was swiftly handed my ass ... Read More »
So next Tuesday we will see the release of Destiny's biggest expansion since the Taken King dropped last year. And with a week to go until release we are already seeing leaked footage of the game-play we can expect to see when the expansion drops into orbit on the 20th. Over the course of 3 videos we are introduced to a mission to capture the Vostok Observatory. Each video is roughly 1-2 minutes long and naturally these videos will contain SPOILERS. Part 1 https://youtu.be/cEQgUcIAhcI The first video shows our player fighting his way up a mountain side before taking on some Fallen ... Read More »
Last week, Studio Wildcard surprised us all with an expansion to ARK: Survival Evolved. ARK: Scorched Earth is a fantasy (like the original Ark isn’t fantasy?) version of the original survival experience. Mixed with some of the original dinosaurs are some weird and wonderful creatures that could only exist in the fevered minds of the games creators, and many from myth and legend; Rock elementals, dragons, huge beetles, small vultures, and lots more. Just because we're tough as nails, and have practically lived inside ARK since it joined the Game Preview programme, we explored Scorched Earth in single player mode ... Read More »
Yesterday we finally got a look at the debut game-play trailer for WWE 2k17. From the below trailer you can see that this latest instalment from 2k is shaping up to be the best game in the series for a number of years and is surely going to be a 'Title' wrestling fans won't want to miss. https://youtu.be/qhDsN5BYx8s The trailers main focus is naturally the return of the much missed backstage brawl area. This is showcased by a vicious match up between returning superstar (and pre-order exclusive) Goldberg and the games cover star Brock Lesnar. The game-play trailer features a whole host of superstars. Including a brief appearance ... Read More »
Late yesterday Hanger 13 and 2K Studios released a new video that gave us a look at a new family in the Mafia universe. Studio Head and Game Director, Hanaden Blackman, and his team give us a brief introduction to the Marcano family and what we can expect from them in the new game. It is clear from this trailer that the Marcanos are going to be a big part of the new game, having run the criminal underground of New Bordeaux (a fictionalised version of New Orleans) for decades. With the ruthless Don Sal Marcanos at it's helm. A highlight from ... Read More »

Danger Zone Review

If there was ever a game I have fond memories of, it's that of the Burnout series. Specifically that of the Crash Mode where...
