Review: Forza Motorsport 7

by Nazih Fareson October 4, 2017
In recent years, console racing games have been pretty much divided into two types of loyal fans. You’re either more games like Project Cars which push the boundaries of driving simulation to the extreme; or on the other hands, you prefer games like the Forza Motorsports series, which are aimed at both the purists and […]

Review: Halo Wars 2

by Nazih Fareson February 19, 2017
It’s been eight long years since the Halo series ventured into the ruthless world of “PC-only” RTS with Halo Wars back on the Xbox 360. Halo Wars is probably a title that is on this list of surprising games, and ended up becoming one of my most memorable gaming experiences as well as others, but sadly the […]

Review: Gears of War 4

by Nazih Fareson October 13, 2016
It was 10 years ago that the gaming world were introduced to Gears of War. A game that basically perfected the concept of cover-based shooter, to a point that it pushed gamers around the world to use the word “cover” as a an action that meant “take cover and shoot a bunch of weird monsters with a […]

by Nazih Fareson September 30, 2016
After being totally amazed by Forza Horizon 2 (and the awesome DLC expansion Storm Island), Playground are back with the aptly name sequel Forza Horizon 3.

Review: ReCore

by Nazih Fareson September 29, 2016
Post-apocalyptic seemed to be a theme fit for gaming, and although this term certainly makes you think of the Fallout series which brilliantly portrays it, other titles such Wasteland, Metro 2033 or The Last of Us have done well in their own ways. What is rare however, is to see a Japanese studio to be […]

Review: Dead Rising Triple Pack

by Nazih Fareson September 22, 2016
After revisiting one of the best of Capcom’s zombie saga, Resident Evil 4 Remastered in glorious HD and 60 fps, It’s time for another licence to get the remaster facelift, one that is more on the goofy side than the scary one: Dead Rising. Celebrating its 10th year anniversary, after the first launch released on Xbox 360 back in […]

Preview: Gears of War 4

by Nazih Fareson April 25, 2016
Do you remember the world where “cover shooter” was at its infancy and that Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Ghost Recon were the only example. A world where The Division, Ex: Human Revolution, and many other didn’t exist yet. Behind the beefy aspect of the TPS and pools of blood, Epic Games’ 2006 Gears of War hid in reality […]

Review: Quantum Break

by Nazih Fareson April 12, 2016
When a developer launched and created titles like Max Payne and Alan Wake, there’s inevitably some pressure on the shoulders when announcing a new project. From the beginning of the announcement of Quantum Break, Remedy Entertainment shared their wildest ambitions for the game. Is this mix of sci-fi, adventure, Hollywood cast and supercharged action embedded TV show worth it? There’s a […]

Review: Halo 5: Guardians

by Nazih Fareson October 29, 2015
Halo is undoubtedly the most iconic franchise linked to the Xbox consoles license. The arrival of Halo 5: Guardians, the first real opus on Xbox One (disregarding the remakes with Halo: The Master Chief Collection) is an event as important for fans as it is for Microsoft. Halo 4 did not unanimously appeal to the fans, which […]

Back in December last year, Playground Games unleashed its first DLC for Forza Horizon 2 with real content – other than the usual drops of new cars – called Storm Island. The latter, as its name suggests, is located on an island based the Aeolian Islands of Sicily, and offers races in a hostile climate. Priced at $20, or $10 […]
