Just when you thought it was over, it returns from the grave. You might have thought that the zombie-craze was finally dead, but as the subject matter might suggest, it simply refuses to kick the bucket. The Walking Dead continues to be one of the most popular shows on television and with the cliffhanger at the end of season 6, fans are clamoring for more undead action. Thankfully, Telltale Games has taken up the call with a new miniseries of its popular adventure survival horror series based on the comics
Mothership Zeta is a bit of a step backwards as far as Fallout 3 DLC is concerned. The game still has the trademark humor and some interesting areas, but the endless combat and lack of side missions turns it into a grind at times.
Gameplay: Strips Fallout 3 down to a linear corridor shooter.
Graphics: Brand new visual assets and a suitably sci-fi environment.
Sound: Still good
A very entertaining game which was obviously heavily inspired by some of the Lucasarts classics. It may seem a bit dated, but it’s still fun & challenging so fans of the genre should have a blast.
Gameplay: Fun but nothing too tricky.
Graphics: Obviously a bit dated but still nice.
Sound: Pretty low-key overall
With more humour, weapons, enemies, locations and vehicles this is the best Borderlands DLC yet. A much improved effort than Mad Moxxis Underdome Riot and another chance to loot Pandora. The story is engaging and apart from the tedious driving sections this DLC is a lot of fun to play. If you own Borderlands then you definitely want this DLC as it ups the level cap and throws in some nice high-level loot.
Gameplay: A much better effort than the previous DLC.
Graphics: Nice but nothing we haven’t seen before in the main game.
Sound: The usual high standard
The Secret Order 2: Masked Intent is a hidden object game that doesn’t just confine itself to one theme, or even time period. Instead, you’ll be visiting a variety of locations, spread across the ages as you attempt to thwart a member of the secret order who has gone rogue. It is a good looking game, with plenty of detail and while there is nothing here we haven’t seen before in the genre, it still kept us engaged and entertained.
Gameplay: Plenty of hidden object scenes as well as puzzles to solve.
Graphics: The locations are nice and varied and the visuals are quite detailed.
Sound: The soundtrack is quite moody and atmospheric
I had my reservations about the new Dante, but still ended up enjoying this game due to the involved combat system. Ninja Theory knows how to create action packed games and while it is quite a departure from past titles in the series, this reboot should appeal to fans. Provided you can look past the redesigned Dante that is.
Gameplay: More accessible than previous titles, but with enough depth for veterans.
Graphics: Not bad, but certainly not the best the system has to offer.
Sound: Mostly good voice acting and fitting music
