    Blade Symphony review

    Blade Symphony is about the fantasy of being a swordsman and all that comes with it: honour, skill and etiquette. If you’re responsive to those ideas to even a small degree, it is a fighting game with tremendous depth and promise. It’s a realisation of its core fantasy that’s original enough in its execution to stand…

    Bloodborne leads the 40-page E3 preview special in the new issue of Edge magazine. It’s out now in print, on iPad, Google Play and Zinio. Dark Souls II was nothing short of wonderful, but the mere mention of Hidetaka Miyazaki’s involvement with a new PS4 project is enough to make us drop New Game Plus for just a moment. Bloodborne…

    Ace Combat Infinity

    Countries spend millions keeping their air forces in the sky. Fuel is expensive, after all. With Ace Combat Infinity – the 17th instalment in Bandai Namco’s flight series, but its first sortie into free-to-play – Project Aces has managed to simulate that burden. Every time you take to the skies, whether it’s part of the campaign…

    Among the sleep

    Having wandered the corridors of so many haunted asylums of late, encountering Among The Sleep’s fresh take on videogame horror comes as something of a relief. You spend your time moving between a surreal imagined world and a suburban house, both equally unfamiliar thanks to Krillbite Studio’s masterstroke: casting you as a two-year-old child. Appropriately, the…

    WildStar is comfortable being an MMOG. It’s strange that this is remarkable, and that it should be a cause for celebration when a new game in a popular genre seems happy to be what it is. But the recent history of the MMOG is a story of games caught between audiences, brands and genres. WildStar…

    The Evil Within

    An exploding head is just about the last thing you’d expect to feel comforting, but somehow The Evil Within manages to convey a deeply nostalgic assurance with every skull you burst. Plant a shell or two in an enemy’s face and a warm, frothy spray of gore bubbles forth like the lemonade of childhood, coupled…

    Virtua Tennis 3art

    The last few years have seen developers of sports games become increasingly obsessed with the notion of realism. Despite the annual FIFA game outselling nearest rival Pro Evolution Soccer every year, licence-guzzling giant EA talks openly about trying to emulate the realism that its closest rival offers. So it’s ironic that Virtua Tennis 3 –…

    We’re in the middle of the pack on the second lap of a touring car race when something other than our shunt-happy opponents hits us: this feels like TOCA again. With its continual reinvention of cherished series, Codemasters has been nothing if not brave, but the UK studio has returned to its roots for Autosport,…
