Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 takes the competition to EA’s FIFA 15 and this year, may be on the verge of snatching away FIFA‘s long-standing mantle as the premier football (soccer) simulator. With a lukewarm reception from FIFA 15 this year, PES 2015 have delivered their strongest contender to date.

Visually, PES 2015 is head and shoulders ahead of FIFA 15 in this department. While FIFA 15 visuals look starkly similar to last years offering, PES 2015 have upped the ante once again producing a beautifully realistic experience.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! Review

When Borderlands first burst on to the scene back in 2009, many critics wrote the series off before it was even released. Gearbox Software “loot and shoot” first-person shooter launched at a highly competitive period against the likes of Uncharted 2, Demon’s Souls, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 the following month.

Despite the odds, Borderlands not only survived; but thrived thanks largely to its addictive looting system, tight gameplay controls, and lush cel-shaded graphics.

Naturally Borderlands 2 followed not too long after, but before the series takes a step forward, Gearbox Software along with our very own home-grown 2K Australia will be taking things half a step back with a 1.5 release in the story arc – Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

The Evil Within breathes fresh life into the survival horror genre. With Shinji Makami (of Resident Evil 4 fame) at the helm of Tango Gameworks, the air of expectation is unavoidable. Thankfully The Evil Within delivers a genuinely frightening experience horror purists have been crying out for. It may even leave some players simply crying.

Coming off the success of their first soiree into the next-generation marketplace, NBA 2K14 set a high benchmark as arguably the greatest basketball simulator experience ever created. The distinction between the previous-gen and now current-gen consoles was pretty much night and day, leaving many fans to ask the obvious question of Visual Concepts – Where can the 2K franchise go from here?

Although the improvements aren’t as drastic or immediately distinguishable from tip-off, NBA 2K15 adds further refinement to a series that needed very little improvement to captivate its audience.

Fans of Nickelodeon’s sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender rejoiced upon hearing the news that Platinum Games – renowned for titles such as Bayonetta, Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising – would be taking on the challenge of a true The Legend of Korra videogame. Licensed games typically have a reputation of failing to meet expectations, and while this may still hold weight with this year’s tie-in, fans will be pleased to know that they can still dive in and experience the power of bending for themselves.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution follows closely in the footsteps of its predecessor Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Jam-packed with more characters, story, special jutsu and new features, this title feels more like a continuation than a proper revolution as the name may suggest. As the fifth title (and possibly last title) for last gen consoles, Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is a welcome inclusion to the long-running franchise.

Murdered: Soul Suspect on paper appears infinitely promising with its premise, but doesn’t quite reach its potential. The gameplay is unique, as is the world of Salem where everything takes place but ultimately feels like a wasted opportunity. The game never drew me in to feel engaging, but isn’t entirely bad either. By the end of it all, my feelings towards Murdered: Soul Suspect was left in a state of limbo.

Watch Dogs is the most anticipated game of the year, breaking pre-order sales records following a string of delays which left fans with an insatiable appetite for the open world hacking adventure. With so much potential to build upon the genre, Watch Dogs does a commendable job but falls painfully short of being a genre-defining title.

Child of Light is a testament to what can be accomplished when all the elements in one title work together harmoniously to become something even greater and beyond. It may not have a blockbuster budget, yet Child of Light‘s modest adventure will leave a long-lasting, lingering impression on those who are open-minded and bold enough to venture into a strange mysterious world.

The intense, dirt biking antics of the Trials series takes a futuristic turn with Trials Fusion. Renowned for its death-defying leaps, trial-and-error gameplay as well as its downright addictive nature, it’s a series that’s thoroughly earned its fan base – and more to the point, one willing to keep returning ‘one more time’ to finish its most unforgiving courses.
