Slender The Arrival review

Anyone who watches my reviews knows I’m a sucker for horror games but oddly enough I’ve never really played any of the true survival games that have come out recently apart from Alien: Isolation. Slender: The Arrival isn’t exactly new, but this remix for the latest generation of consoles delivers a couple of new chapters and ideas to the game which sees you exploring a house, nearby wood and more in search of your friend who has gone missing. Armed only with a torch, what seems like a nice sunny day soon turns into night and things get really creepy....

Lollipop Chainsaw

Lollipop Chainsaw review

What do you get if you cross Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Greece? The answer is Lollipop Chainsaw from Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture. It’s a crazy supernatural tale in the same vein as Shadows of the Damned but this time you play as a cheerleader called Juliet Starling with her decapitated boyfriend Nick along for the ride instead of a flaming skull. The story is pretty simple. Zombies have invaded the town of San Romero (see what they did there horror fans?) and it just so turns out you and your entire family are zombie hunters so off you go...

Project Zero 2

Project Zero 2 Wii Edition release date

Nintendo have recently announced Project Zero 2: Wii Edition exclusively for the Wii. Tecmo Koei Games are re-launching the creepy game with all new motion controls and new two player modes across Europe on 29th June. If you’re not familiar with the game it will be a remake of Crimson Butterfly where you must use your Camera Obscura to see and defeat all of the nasties in the haunted abandoned village you find yourself in.

Dead Island review

Dead Island review

I’ve been putting off writing this review for days now. ‘Why is that?’ you ask? Well, I’m glad you asked that, because I’m going to tell you: I really couldn’t decide whether I loved it… or hated it, and so instead of sitting down and banging out some vaguely readable prose I just kept on and on playing the thing. I’ve now come to the conclusion that generally I hate it, but there are parts of it that I genuinely loved. Think that sounds a bit nuts? Read on… Dead Island is set, you won’t be surprised to hear, on...

Rise of Nightmares

Rise of Nightmares review

If anyone knows how to make horror games it’s Sega (and to some extent Konami and Capcom I suppose). House of the Dead in the past has attempted to immerse gamers by letting them shoot at zombies and monsters on rails in the arcades and on consoles and the Condemned games have shown that melee combat from a first-person is possible and if you do things right, you really can give people the willes. The first one really did scare me and make me jump in places. So far we’ve only really seen family games mostly for kids on the...

Dead Space 2 review

Finally Dead Space 2 is here and after going to countless preview events and chatting to the guys that made it I finally get to play it. Thankfully, it doesn’t disappoint. Once again you step into the engineering suit of Isaac Clarke as you wake up in a straight jacket on a space station called The Sprawl above the moon of Titan. All hell’s breaking loose and of course there are plenty of Necromorphs to dismember along the way. This time Isaac has a face and a voice which adds an extra layer of character and makes you care more...
