What they received most recently was Dirt 4, which valiantly attempted to capitalise on the new goodwill and combine it with the more mainstream appeal of Dirt (no-Rally). Thanks to a muddled identity and an ambitious, but underwhelming, procedurally generated stage system, it unfortunately failed to appease fans anywhere on the spectrum. It&rsquo;s no surprise then to see Codies heading back to the untarnished Dirt Rally name with this latest release, making references to the classic Colin McRae Rally 2.0 title for extra expectation-setting.<br /> There&rsquo;s a question where exactly it falls relative to the previous two games though. Dirt Rally was an early access title with a charmingly barebones approach that won over hardcore sim fans...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12991">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12991#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewTue, 19 Feb 2019 17:38:56 +0100http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12991#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12991evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Operencia: The Stolen Sun Developer Diary Brings The Old School http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12990<h4></h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12990"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/avatars/aatg.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Operencia: The Stolen Sun Developer Diary Brings The Old School "></a>Zen Studios of the Zen Pinball fame have just sent us this lovely little video for you all to enjoy.<br /> Looking like a solid update of the first person dungeon crawler, this Operencia: The Stolen Sun overview will give you an idea of where their ideas came from and the shaping of this brand new world.<br /> We're loving the look of this so far, and can't wait until the game release in the (hopefully) near future on Xbox One and Epic store.</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12990">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12990#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>NewsThu, 07 Feb 2019 14:47:40 +0100http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12990#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12990evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth Gets A Release Datehttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12989<h4></h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12989"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/avatars/aatg.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth Gets A Release Date"></a>All of you mad as a box of frogs Persona fans better get your diarys out, as you'll be able to help Persona 5's Phantom Thieves uncover a cinematic mystery with the aid of the casts of Persona 3, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4.<br /> You'll be facing a strange world of film in this dungeon crawler which sees you trapped in a series of movies, each with its own twists and turns.<br /> The launch edition of Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth, which includes an art book will only be available to pre-orders and a limited number of day one buye...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12989">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12989#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>NewsTue, 05 Feb 2019 16:04:51 +0100http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12989#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12989evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Get Up to Speed on Metro Exodus With This New Videohttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12988<h4></h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12988"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/avatars/aatg.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Get Up to Speed on Metro Exodus With This New Video"></a>Fancy that new fangled Metro Exodus game, but have no idea where to start?

You summon troops, capture bases which give you cash every turn which is used to summon more troops to capture more bases and give you more cash. Eventually, you build a big enough army that you move your troops against the enemy and crush them (or just as likely, if you are me, get crushed by them). But, drilling down to such a base level of understanding does not give Wargroove the credit it deserves.<br /> It is not just a turn-based tactics game, it is a very good turn-based tactics game.<br /> The characters and art give the impression that this game will be cute and relaxing and in the first few missions, this seems to be the case. But by the end of Act 1, the big bad appears and you are ta...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12987">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12987#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewWed, 30 Jan 2019 18:28:39 +0100http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12987#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12987evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Check Out Your Murdering Tools in Metro Exodushttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12986<h4>Brap Brap</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12986"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/avatars/aatg.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Check Out Your Murdering Tools in Metro Exodus"></a>As the release date of Metro Exodus creeps ever closer Deep Silver and 4A Studios have given us this sneak peak of the weapons you'll be using as you traverse across post-apocalyptic Russia.<br /> The Metro series has always been about the cobbled together nature of your guns and ammo, but here 4A Studios have ensured that each gun is totally functional and can be customised out in the irradiated field, which can give you tons of tactical options.

So much she wanted to be in the game, however: &lsquo;&ldquo;But girls can&rsquo;t be knights, Daddy. Only boys!&rdquo; she said, to which he answered &ldquo;Pshh&hellip;What color do you want your armor to be?&rdquo; The answer was pink! And that&rsquo;s how this game started.<br /> Bless.

I've always loved this series, with its great character and world design, so for me personally it has been quite the long wait. Where Darksiders got it's inspiration from Zelda and the sequel morphed into a God of War actioner with loot tumbling from every which orifice, Darksiders&nbsp; 3 has taken inspiration from the gaming marmite that calls itself Dark Souls.

Based quite loosely on the RPG based on H.P. Lovecraft's cosmic horror books Call of Cthulhu plops you into the muddy boots of grizzled first world war veteran Edward Pierce, a slightly alcoholic detective working out of Boston in 1924. It's not long before you are handed your first case in an age, investigate the deaths of the Hawkins family on Darkwater Island.<br /> Call of Cthulhu absolutely drips atmosphere from the moment you boot the game, everything is perfectly judged, and I'm a huge fan of the stylised character work, which instead of heading down the photo realistic look of most games has plumped for something more akin to Dishonored, and it really works, bringing out the grotesquenesses so loved by Lovercraft fans everywhere.<br /> Gameplay is mostly detective ...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12979">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12979#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewThu, 08 Nov 2018 18:08:34 +0100http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12979#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12979evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Red Dead Redemption 2 Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12978<h4>Wicky Wicky Wild Wild West</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12978"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/rdr21.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Red Dead Redemption 2 Review"></a>Red Dead Redemption 2 is a cowboy simulator from Rockstar Games, the same publisher who birthed Grand Theft Auto on to an unsuspecting world. Of course Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't just a cowboy sim, it's something a whole lot more. Come with me dear reader, let me explain the ways.<br /> Taking place in 1899 Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prequel to the previous game and you find yourself in the cowboy boots of one Arthur Morgan, the backbone of Dutch van der Linde's gang of thieves, gamblers and money lenders. You find yourselves on the run after a botched job, hiding from the law whilst also trying to make enough money to disappear off the radar for a while. Easier said than done. I won't go into any depth about the story here, for there be spoilers, but I will say it's by far my favourite narrative in any Rockstar game yet.

The idea of coming up with an elevator pitch for Vroom Kaboom seems like an insurmountable challenge. Even watching videos of gameplay only gives you a partial sense of what the game actually is. The only way to communicate it is with a detailed description of the setup, so&hellip; here we go?<br /> Each match has two players, one is at either end of the play area. Your view will begin by your base - you have two installations to protect, one to the left and one to the right. You know that, in the distance, your opponent has the same layout going on. In between is a road, or set of roads, heading directly from one base to the other. The objective is to deplete the health of your opponents&rsquo; installations, eventually destroying them to win the game.&nbsp;<br /> Your method of destruction is, primarily, launching vehicl...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12976">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12976#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewFri, 19 Oct 2018 13:22:09 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12976#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12976evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Space Hulk: Tactics Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12975<h4>For the Emporer!</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12975"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/spacehulktactics1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Space Hulk: Tactics Review"></a>Review by Dean Davis.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Space Hulk: Tactics by Cyanide studio is a turn based strategy game adaption of the Space Hulk board game.<br /> First and foremost I feel the need to clarify that I came into this without any real knowledge of Warhammer 40k, I played a bad action game based in the 40k universe once but that&rsquo;s about it. I therefore had no real expectations or presumptions going in as to what to expect, I also can&rsquo;t give any comparisons good or bad in regards to the board game or how they differ. I just took this for what it is and spoiler, it&rsquo;s pretty great (it&rsquo;s actually got me interested in 40k lore)<br /> My first major mistake was to treat these hulking masses of bio mechanical machines as standard humans, they are not simply humans, they are tanks with feet!<br /> As a complete beginner to 40K and specifically the rule set of the board game that this is based on, I was completely ignorant to ...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12975">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12975#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewFri, 12 Oct 2018 13:34:08 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12975#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12975evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Dakar 18 Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12974<h4>Son of a Beach</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12974"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/dakar181.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Dakar 18 Review"></a>Review by Rich Boulton.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The Dakar rally presents a fascinating challenge to translate into a game. The annual event covers thousands of miles over 11 days, with a variety of vehicles across harsh, open terrain and incredibly long individual stages. A great deal of the challenge is in the endurance itself, vehicle repairs, navigational challenges. Developers Big Moon have not chosen the path of least resistance in releasing Dakar 18. They could have simply created a slightly off-kilter rally game with quads, bikes, buggies, cars, and trucks. Instead they have chosen to share something far more ambitious, flawed, and intriguing.<br /> Start the game up and you are treated to a spoken introduction by your co-driver, who begins to explain the basic concepts of the Dakar. You are to follow a series of GPS waypoints, instructions to lead you toward these are shown in the roadbook on screen, and delivered by your co-driver on a constant...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12974">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12974#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewThu, 11 Oct 2018 15:29:26 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12974#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12974evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Fire Pro Wrestling World PS4 Reviewhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12973<h4>Push Tyler Breeze</h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12973"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/articlethumbs/firepro1.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Fire Pro Wrestling World PS4 Review"></a>Fire Pro Wrestling World is an odd beast, a game which promises to bring back the heady days of your youth, when games were simple and fun, but making just enough changes to bring it into the space year 2018. Let's see how it does, shall we?<br /> Fire Pro Wrestling has been about since 1989 on PC Engine, but it's the 1991 version I remember drooling over in the pages of Mean Machines magazine and the like. Still developed by Spike Chunsoft not that much seems to have changed on the surface. It's still a 2D timing based brawler with next to no HUD, If your guy or gal is looking puffed out, you better push the breathe button or you're going to get pinned.<br /> This is about as far away from 2K's WWE games as you can get, playing more like a Streetfighter brawler with light, medium and heavy attacks, and button combinations for specials varying from fighter to fighter. At first in can be a bit maddening to play, you'll get squashed by the AI...</p><hr style="border-color:#CCCCCC;border-style:dashed;"><p>This article is written by <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/profiles.php?profile_id=234">Evilashchris</a>. | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12973">Read More...</a> | <a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12973#comments">Read Comments...</a></p>ReviewWed, 10 Oct 2018 17:40:32 +0200http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12973#commentshttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12973evilashchris@allaboutthegames.net Red Dead Redemption 2 Gets an All New Trailerhttp://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12972<h4></h4><p><a href="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/feature_story.php?article_id=12972"><img src="http://www.allaboutthegames.co.uk/images/avatars/aatg.jpg" border="0" align="left" hspace="15" vspace="5" alt="Red Dead Redemption 2 Gets an All New Trailer"></a>People, you are going to need this.
