Torment: Tides of Numenera

#Torment #TidesofNumenera Looks good. It has a lot of charm & the dialogue helps to describe what the game doesn't show you. The areas feel small, and the fights weren't engaging. I struggled to engage with the characters & the game failed to keep my attention at times.

Gears of War 4

#GearsOfWar4 Looks & plays like Gears of War. The story is OK, but doesn't manage to quite draw you in like the first one did. The controls are starting to feel a little dated & the pacing is a little off at times, but overall it's a fun, enjoyable experience. Great weapons & Horde mode just got better.

Battlefield One

#BattlefieldOne An amazing, intense Multiplayer Shooter, with great balance in gameplay and some fantastic maps. Great if you are in a squad, but without team to back you up it is a lot less rewarding. Slow character/weapon unlocks.

Recore

#Recore Game oozes charm & the premise is wonderful. But despite this, it struggles to hold your attention after a while, as the long loading times really start to disrupt the flow of the game. And lets not talk too much about the large open game spaces (all that endless walking). Great targeting, and a fun story with some interesting repeatable dungeons. Keeps me coming back for more.

Final Fantasy XV

#FinalFantasyXV Stellar soundtrack & breathtaking visuals. Story is at times flimsy, but is helped by watching the CGI movie “Kingsglaive” & the anime “Brotherhood”. New combat system looks gorgeous & feels powerful, but camera positions & controls occasionally acting up causes frustration. Must play for true fans & worth playing for first timers.

Deus Ex : Mankind Divided

#DeusEx #MankindDivided Brilliant voice acting. The story premise is well implemented, but the main protagnist seems to lack motivation. Feels easy to pick up and play, but the there are some really annoying micro-transactions, some linked to your characters level up kits. Overall a disappointment that shouldn't have been a disappointment. The last one was so good

Destiny – Rise of Iron

#Destiny #RiseOfIron There isn't much to bring new players in, or people who left the game back. Same Destiny as before, higher "light" cap & more loot. Same great guns & gameplay, but also the same problems - but this time with friends! It's still a great shooter.

Titan Quest – Anniversary Edition

#TitanQuest #AnniversaryEdition Game looks better than ever, and despite its age, it's still fun to play. The multiplayer option via Steam was great, but a couple of the matches were a little laggy. Nice to see achievements, but the controls feel really outdated.

Mantis Burn Racing

#MantisBurnRacing Old School top down racer, easy controls & a great multiplayer option. Lacks track variety, lack of power-ups means you always have to race to your best, which is both great and frustrating at the same time.

Hitman

#Hitman has a great pick & play feel to it. Wonderfully designed maps, with a lot of different ways to take our your target(s). The episodic release schedule really helps make this feel like a game designed for longevity and helps encourage you to replay the existing content.

Rainbow Six : Siege

#RainbowSix #Siege Good tactical shooter with a nice variety of guns & gadgets. Has some interesting game modes, but some are better than others. Add some friends into the mix and the game becomes a LOT more fun. The unlock system could be better.

Witcher 3 – Blood & Wine

#Witcher3 #BloodandWine an amazing expansion pack which only adds to one the best RPG's around. The inventory is still a pain though. CDProjekt is one of the best developers out there, and this is clearly an expansion for their fans. Well worth playing

Carmageddon : Max Damage

#Carmageddon #MaxDamage Car damage is great & there is plenty of variety, but the cars don't handle well at all. If they could fix the handling the game would be a lot more fun. In this day & age, it just doesn't cut it.

Ratchet & Clank

#RatchetandClank A brilliant re-style of an existing franchise. The Game oozes charm & plays like a dream, some great humour and a fun to play story. Interesting weapon upgrades, that keep you busy for ages.

Tom Clancy’s : The Division

#TheDivision Fun & enjoyable cover to cover shooter. Playing co-op really makes this game shine. The story holds the missions & gameplay together. The game looks good and plays well, but it is a little confusing at times, so you end up just grabbing a gun to do more shooting.

DmC – Devil May Cry – Definitive Edition

#DmC # DevilMayCry #DefinitiveEdition A wonderfully stylish & smooth game, which is a blast to play. Lots of dificultly modes & upgrades which add a definite sense of replayability. Combat is still wonderfully fast & furious.

Uncharted 4 – A Thief’s End

#Uncharted4 #AThiefsEnd Epic adventure from start to finish. A visual masterpiece with engaging set pieces and great characters. Solid, well established gameplay makes Uncharted a joy to play. The addition of larger areas plays well into the Uncharted gameplay, allowing different ways to attain the same goal.

The Witcher 3 – Hearts of Stone

#Witcher3 #HeartsofStone Another amazing story that only reinforces the fact that #CDProjektRed is one of the best developers out there. A joy to play, and great value for money.

Fallout 4

#Fallout4 The combat feels very outdated, but that really doesn't stop the game from being fun. It's "more" Fallout, and there is always something else just around the corner, and the next corner. The new crafting adds a some good depth, but also makes the inventory harder to manage.

Uncharted : The Nathan Drake Collection

#Uncharted #TheNathanDrakeCollection The Characters, story and game direction are a joy to experience. An excellent remaster all around, but it lacks replayability. Overall amazing value for money. In the words of Uncharted: "Greatness from Small Beginnings".

Quantum Break

#QuantumBreak A well told story with some fantastic combat. If you have played Remedy games before, you know exactly what you are getting. Lacks much in the way of replayability, but a really great game to play. The mix of Live action and gameplay really adds to the experience.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

#AssassinsCreed #Syndicate Entertaining story & characters. Smooth gameplay and some nice gadgets. The franchise is really starting to show it's age, but it's a fun game none the less.

Homeworld : Deserts of Kharak

#Homeworld #DesertsofKharak An atmosphere which, despite the loss of open space, evokes Homeworld perfectly. It is "bare bones" however & lacks gameplay depth as a result of this.

Zen Pinball 2 – The Force Awakens

#ZenPinball2 #TheForceAwakens The game never fails to amaze me, it always produces high quality, entertaining Pinball tables. These are both great fun, and really capture the essense of the new Star Wars.

Star Wars : Battlefront

#StarWars #Battlefront Long awaited, great fun & doesn't take its self to seriously. Nice variety of game types & great to play with a friend. You can only partner with one other person. The perk system can be a bit of a lottery. Choking people & shooting lighting from ones finger tips is epic

Rise of the Tomb Raider

#RiseoftheTombRaider Interesting story with some wonderful characters. Great looking game that makes use of enviromental sounds very well. Not much is different from the previous #TombRaider, but to be honest, that isn't a bad thing.

Call of Duty : Black Ops 3

#BlackOpsIII Great game, but essentially it's a bit SSDD (Same S@*t Different Day). It feels like it's trying to be what the Mass Effect Multiplayer should have been, which is kind of odd. If you've bought the other games, you're going to buy this one.

Divinity Original Sin – Enhanced Edition

#Divinity #OriginalSin #EnhancedEdition A very Modern old school RPG, that oozes charm and character. Pacing sometimes feels off, and the inventory is a real pain at times. The turn based combat is great and easy to use.

Guild Wars 2 : Heart of Thorns

#HeartOfThorns Best MMO out there. The Gliding & the Guild Halls are amazing. Better storytelling, but main story glosses over some interesting aspects as you "fly through" it. Great time/loot sinks. Mastery system gives your account the feeling of levelling.

Risen 3 – Titan Lords : Enhanced Edition

#Risen3 #TitanLords #EnhancedEdition Frame rate issues, Poor presentation & weak story. Clunky controls with an odd lag when you try to dodge. Has some nice RPG elements & looks good, but combat isn't very good

Destiny: The Taken King

#Destiny #TheTakenKing Interesting story, better game mechanics & a MUCH better version of Destiny, but as a veteran player, all your old gear is useless. For new players, it's a great time to start playing. Still great fun with friends.

The Red Solstice

#TheRedSolstice The game can be overwhelming with a steep learning curve, but once you get into it , it is hard to put down, mainly due to nice environments, balanced mechanics & fast paced game-play

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

#TheVanishingOfEthanCarter More of an experience than a game. You really try at least once. Visually stunning, Interesting & very confusing. I was unable to play for long periods time, as it caused me motion sickness

Q.U.B.E. Directors Cut

#QUBE #DirectorsCut Interesting concept with some great puzzles, a little disorientating at times & controls take time to get used to. Puzzles are a lot better than the story. Nice #Portal elements

Ori And The Blind Forest

#OriAndTheBlindForest One of the most emotionally gripping stories I have played. Very cute & never dull. Hard at times & when it's hard, you know it's you who did it wrong & not the game punishing you

Geometry Wars 3 Dimensions Evolved

#GeometryWars3 It's back. Not a game that you can play at the same time as doing anything else. Great "pick up & play" feeling to it. Interesting levels & powerups, Worth the time, but #HateBossFights
