Alucard’s part in the Lords of Shadow 2 mythos takes centre stage in Revelations, the two-to-three hour DLC available now for February’s divisive adventure. Those who found the tale’s ending to be abrupt and unsatisfying will no doubt be disappointed given this download’s nature as a prequel, but at least they can take solace in the ability to play as someone other than Dracula since Mirror of Fate HD. Although a welcome change from the LoS norm, it’s worth noting that those unimpressed with the series so far will find little here to warrant a second glance.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight Review

Nippon Ichi Software has proven with Disgaea that even less savoury characters can be charming without losing their evil allure. Unfortunately The Witch and the Hundred Knight doesn’t quite reach...

Nippon Ichi Software has proven with Disgaea that even less savoury characters can be charming without losing their evil allure. Unfortunately The Witch and the Hundred Knight doesn’t quite reach the same level of love despite having fundamentally been inspired by the long-running series.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Review

The saying goes, “Third time’s a charm.” Square Enix may be taking things a little too literal producing a third title, Lightning Returns – Final Fantasy XIII. Can the finale in the long-running Final Fantasy XIII series provide closure for fans and prove to be the best of the batch?

Dark Souls has a reputation for being brutally difficult, but in all the right way. It left a firm impression on its loyal player base for the frustration and satisfaction it delivered, through its rage-inducing but oddly fair difficulty curve. From Software returns with Dark Souls II with even more addictive gameplay that will leave you pushing the boundaries of your gaming ability, well beyond what you ever thought you were capable of achieving.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a spin-off of the Ninja Gaiden series, replacing Ryu Hayabusa with a new protagonist and stripping away almost all its ninja ways. Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z may have the Ninja Gaiden name, but none of the legacy from the franchise. If you were hoping Yaiba would be the game to write all the wrongs after the dismal Ninja Gaiden 3, you could be in for an extended wait.

In an era of reboots and series revivals, it isn’t much of a surprise to see Thief given the same treatment. Tomb Raider and Deus Ex: Human Revolution have both received glowing success and dare I say, been restored to their former glory. After a decade long hiatus, Master Thief Garrett returns with familiar stealth gameplay mechanics, along with a few new surprises in his bag of tricks. Thief does well to repeat the same fortunes of its precursors, but has a few stumbles along the way.

The dynamic duo return in Ratchet and Clank: Nexus (or Into the Nexus for the USA), the epilogue to the well-received PS3 Future trilogy. As a budget title releasing alongside the launch of the PlayStation 4, you’d be forgiven for expecting Nexus to be a half-hearted effort. Thankfully, it’s back to greatness for the beloved heroes, undoing the pain of recent instalments that strayed too far from the winning formula.

The Guided Fate Paradox is one of those RPGs that slipped under the radar this year, overshadowed by the arrival of next-gen consoles and a late in the year release date. You’d be forgiven for assuming NIS America’s dungeon crawler can’t be all that great as it wound up on store shelves with little fanfare at all.

The WWE simulation series over the years has proven itself to be a popular choice with fans of professional wrestling. Despite the lack of contenders in the genre, developer Yuke have managed to produce wrestling titles year in and year out to excite gamers, building strength upon strength.

WWE 2K14 represents a new era as the first title to be published by 2K Sports, since the publisher acquired the license from THQ last year. With the help of Visual Concepts (the developers behind NBA 2K series), it’s a relief to know the series is alive and kicking with an impressive maiden title.
