Injustice 2 Review

injustice 2Subtle upgrades and innovations over multiple games has shaped Injustice 2 into every success that it boasts. It’s here that Injustice 2 is a solid leap better than its predecessor. It’s also turned out to be the best game that NetherRealm Studios has developed so far. What makes Injustice 2 stand apart from every other fighting game is an interesting story, masterful character customization, balanced fighters, and an overall excellent structure. It’s one of the best fighters I’ve played in years.

Alien Covenant Review

alien covenantRemember when you went to go see Prometheus expecting the allure of Alien but ultimately leaving the theater mostly fulfilled. Alien Covenant is the Alien movie that would have met expectations of seeing Prometheus. It gives us more of what we know from the Alien world, blending styles from both Alien and Aliens. We get some clarity and resolutions from past Alien films. Continue reading Alien Covenant Review

4-One’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review

mario kart 8 deluxeI doubt I’m alone when I say that I absolutely love the Mario Kart series and have been playing them since the very first captured my heart all those years ago.  It’s a game that is just so fun and so pretty and yet so infuriating to play.  Well Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has finally screeched onto the Nintendo Switch so I thought I’d better have a look and see what’s changed. Continue reading 4-One’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Review

ghost recon wildlandsTom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands isn’t unique in a lot of areas. It isn’t particularly groundbreaking in terms of bringing new content to the genre of the 3rd person military tactical shooter, but it also isn’t guilty of not trying to be something truly great. Wildlands is a truly massive game. In the spirit of open world sandbox games this ranks right up there with the biggest in terms of size.

Snipperclips Review A Surprise Hit or One To Miss?

SnipperclipsEvery now and then Nintendo throw us a curve ball and catch us completely by surprise. Leading up to the Nintendo Switch launch date I watched a few events and saw a charming looking game called Snipperclips. The more I saw of the game the more fun it looked and at £17.99 it looked pretty good value for money too. So what’s the reality? Is this a surprise hit or should you be wary of it? Read on to find out. Continue reading Snipperclips Review A Surprise Hit or One To Miss?

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Review

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the WildWhen we ask gamers what their favourite game of all time is, we can be pretty confident that they will choose one title from a select few games that most gamers agree are the best in the business. Perhaps it’s Red Dead Redemption or Goldeneye. Maybe it’s Final Fantasy 7 or Ocarina of Time? Well it might be time to revise that pool of “best games ever” because The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is finally with us after years of waiting and it’s quickly become my favourite game of all time, surpassing even Red Dead Redemption. Now, I haven’t played every Legend of Zelda game nor am I a massive fan but it’s a series I’ve enjoyed in the past and I love the passion that fans have for it. The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild has been in development for a long time and people have been excited for it since we caught our first glimpse of it years ago at E3.

Nintendo SwitchThe Nintendo Switch has been released into the wild at last and 3 of the 4-One Gaming team have decided to dive in head first and invest on launch day.

Astroneer Early Access first impressions

AstroneerI descend through the clouds of this strange new world that my astronaut has discovered. We touch down gently and I step out of my pod and take a look around. There’s many strange looking plants scattered around and some crystals protruding from the ground. I start walking around unsure what my purpose is and where I should be going. A wind storm hits and I’m dead. I respawn and begin my journey into the unknown again. My oxygen runs low and I die. Survival then is one of the aims in Astroneer because there are many ways in which this game will try to kill you.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review

Rogue One comes off the heels of the highly successful Episode 7 that we were graced with last year. Though Episode 7 is a solid and enjoyable movie the protruding faults were noticeable. Parallels between The Force Awakens and A New Hope are staggering and often take away from the appeal of Episode 7. So where does Rogue One fit in with all the Star Wars movies? Succumbing to a fate similar to the prequels, hitting the highs of the original trilogy, or the nostalgia beats of Episode 7? Rogue One respects the Star Wars history while injecting new life into the series without relying on nostalgia or recall to other films. It’s an excellent addition to the Star Wars films and is certainly better than Episode 7. Continue reading Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review
