Review: Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry

With Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, the latest installment of the mega-popular Assassin’s Creed franchise, Ubisoft redeemed themselves in the eyes of gamers and critics alike for the disappointment that many felt with Assassin’s Creed III. As such, Freedom Cry, the first piece of singleplayer DLC for Black Flag, had a lot to live up to. You assume the role of Adéwalé, the Jackdaw’s former quartermaster, 15 years after the events of Black Flag. Now working for the Assassins Adéwalé finds himself washed ashore and into an ongoing struggle for independence. Intriguing concept, but does Adéwalé’s quest for liberation deliver the same thrills as Kenway’s high seas adventure?

Another World: FEZ, Zelda and Exploration

FEZ is on sale on Steam at the moment. It’s £2.99 for the game + soundtrack (which is absolutely worth picking up), which is very cheap and very good value. Fez was one of my favourite games of 2012, and I’ll tell you for why. As you all probably know by now, my favourite game

Review: Soul Calibur II HD Online

What can be said about an already great fighting game from the past? The line up of characters was memorable, the stages were detailed and interesting, and the different fighters actually felt unique with their own fighting styles.

Review: Contrast

Of all the indie games available at the PlayStation 4’s launch, Contrast probably most closely fits the general perception of an indie game. It’s got a charming, artsy aesthetic that’s a little out of the norm and takes a simple concept and twists it into something new and different. Unfortunately, Contrast also plays into some
