Metro: Last Light review

Metro: Last Light takes us back to the post-apocalyptic subway tunnels of Russia that we first saw in 2010's first-person shooter, Metro 2033. The story continues one year after the events of Metro 2033, and carries on from the ending in which Artyom called in the missiles to destroy the Dark Ones. The game starts with Artyom learning of the existence of a single Dark One, and setting out to retrieve it in order to make peace with it, ensuring the survival of humanity. Not everyone shares his enthusiasm for this though, and Colonel Miller orders Artyom to destroy it, seeing the Dark One as a potential threat. And so the game begins. Does it manage to recapture the atmosphere and gripping storyline that the original game was rich in? Read on to find out...

Lego City Undercover review

The Lego games have been incredibly popular over the last ten years. Lego Star Wars, Lego Racers, Lego Rock Band, and many others have charmed their way into gamers' lives, and the latest incarnation will definitely do the same. Lego City Undercover is set in a huge open world, and puts you in the shoes of the undercover cop with the most American name ever, Chase McCain. He's pretty awesome, cracking some top quality one liners and just being generally cool. You must control Chase in his mission to rid the city of crime, starting with the terrible Rex Fury.

Runner 2 review

Three years ago, Gaijin Games developed a game that combined all the mechanics from arcade, platform and rhythm games, and the finished product was Bit.Trip Runner. It turned out to be one of the must fun, addictive and challenging titles available. Now, Gaijin Games have created a sequel. Runner 2, or Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, brings back the same gameplay with many new added features, and completely overhauls the graphics. To find out if it's as good as the first one, read our full review!
