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.

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 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.

Dead or Alive 5 gets an update with the release of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, an expanded version of the original DOA5 which incorporates features from the PlayStation Vita release Dead or Alive Plus, as well as some rather nifty new inclusions.

When a beat ‘em up gets revamped a year on from the original, the question is often raised on whether or not the extras justify purchasing what is in essence the same game all over again. In this case, there may very well be just enough of the new balanced with the not-so-new to make it a considered purchase with developer Team Ninja partnering up with Sega AM2 for another round in the DOA5 arena.
