Note: I played this game solo, not local co-op as is usually recommended with Lego games. Back in 2005, Lego Star Wars: The Video Game set the precedent for all future brick based video games. With a low skill ceiling but huge amounts of replayability to unlock all the characters…

It can’t be easy being Id Software. The creators of DOOM, Wolfenstein and Quake are basically responsible for the entire first-person shooter genre as we know it and that’s a hell of a legacy to live up to. The England football team are proof enough that just because you invented…

Trilogies are always difficult things to get right. You need to balance tying up plot threads, improving on aspects of previous installments while retaining enough to seem familiar. Dark Souls III has quite the act to follow, coming off the back of an incredibly successful deviation from high fantasy in…
When I approached The Banner Saga 2, I wasn't sure if indie developers Stoic could cause lightning to strike the same place twice.
