Every so often a game comes along and blends a variety of genres together in a unique way. And that is exactly what THQ Nordic have done with This Is The Police. Part strategy, part simulator, part tycoon yet with a well-constructed story to back it up. However, blending genres is a dangerous ground which can lead to disaster if incorrectly executed. You’ve spent your whole career in the Police Department. And now, a mere 180 days away from your retirement, you realise you need a nice little pot of money, to the sum of half a million dollars, to … Read More »

After months of waiting, and the promise of a Spring release. The upcoming city construction simulator, Cities: Skylines finally has a release date. Paradox Interactive will be bringing the game which has been on PC for two years already, to Xbox One owners on April 21st. Tantalus Media have optimised play specifically for the controller, which will hopefully alienate those fears of how a keyboard and mouse game will transfer to console. The Xbox One Edition and Windows 10 Edition include the award-winning base game, bundled together with the popular After Dark expansion, allowing players to plan and design for their … Read More »

To make up for that, though, Professional Farmer 2017 does give gamers a massive open-world and customisation options that do, on some level, increase the immersion of the game. Fancy pimping out your vehicles with some sick rims and … Read More »

So with the new preview program on Xbox One we thought we would look at some Preview Games. Please not this is not the full release and we will re-review the game when its launched. After 20 or so hours playing this game, it left me in a quandary. “Where do I go from here?” The answer, which appears simple on paper, is a lot more complex than you might think. Before giving the low down on about my impressions of this Xbox Early Access Game (dubbed the Game Preview Program), it’s worth saying that I already own Elite: Dangerous on PC, … Read More »

Put on your wellies and dungarees. Farming Simulator 2015 has arrived on Xbox One!

The Farming Simulator games have been around on PC since 2007, but this has been my first experience with the series.
