    Review Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition

    Third time's the charm

    When Nintendo first unveiled Hyrule Warriors, people didn’t exactly know what to expect. The company had seldom handed over the keys to one of its cornerstone franchises before, and the proposed concept was odd, to say the least. The final product was an enjoyable (if flawed) experience, and over the years since release,...

    Review Attack On Titan 2

    Slaying on the shoulders of giants

    If the recent barrage of Dragon Ball games has taught us anything, it’s that games based on popular anime/manga are at their very best when they embrace their source material with the passion of an obsessive cosplayer. Fans aren’t just clamouring for stories set in those familiar worlds; they want the stories...

    Review Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon

    Review Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Gray Wolf

    Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!

    Koei's 'Universal Ruler' simulator lets you live the life of the Mongol legend himself. You'll go where he goes, defile what he defiles and eat who he eats. But before you misjudge this game as an indecipherable Japanese take on medieval Mongolian life, understand that Genghis Khan II is actually a conquer the world style game...
