NBA 2K15 Review

Annual sports video game producers have an upheaval task of finding things to improve in their gameplay every year. EA works hard on FIFA to compete with Konami who give them a run for their money with PES. 2K has does a good job with the game in terms of moving it forward and showcasing what it really can offer. However, there are some changes that are glaringly bad and some which proved to be an asset.   Gameplay The gameplay is solid as ever, though the issue of assigned target players being switched during plays was present in 2K14 and sadly remains in the next installment of the game. The game play controls haven’t really gone through any major overhauls as such, in fact are fairly similar to its predecessors’ and  remain more or less the same, including having the option of shoo...

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments Review

Sherlock Holmes has never looked or played better than it does in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments. The latest in developer Frogwares’ adventure series uses Unreal Engine 3 for a much-needed graphics upgrade. Crimes and Punishments takes place over the course of six perplexing, well-written cases that give Holmes lots of opportunities to do what Holmes does best: Snoop around crime scenes for clues, interrogate suspects, and talk down to just about everyone he meets. Murder is afoot in each of the cases, but that doesn’t stop them from being diverse; from an Egyptian-style ritual killing to a gruesome death by whaling harpoon the plots keep you riveted. And like a good winding mystery, the person who did it is rarely the one you suspect initially. The big new feature here is that th...

Mad Catz RAT TE Review

You’ll be amazed at the amount of accessories a gamer can get his/her hands on. Narrowing it down to just to mice you will find yourself in a bit of a puzzle trying to figure out which one is worth your money. So we try our best to make it easier for you, one gaming mouse at a time.   Overview Here is the Mad Catz R.A.T TE (haha…the irony in the name is too much!) which is a pretty mean looking mouse. However I didn’t think too highly of the mouse when I laid my eyes on it for the first time. It looked like it tried too hard with the overly-busy design and made me think that not too much was done on the other aspects of the mouse. But I’ve got to say the mouse proved that looks can be deceiving and proved that it was a decent, quirky, performer for competitive use, offering a number o...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor brings fun and life to the Tolkien universe

The game starts with you as Talion, a ranger of Gondor responsible for guarding the Black Gate of Mordor. In an assault by Sauron’s army you and your family are killed, but you find yourself returned to life and connected with a mysterious wraith who gives you magical powers. Mechanically, Mordor is not an original game. The exploration, climbing and stealth all feel like an Assassin’s Creed title, while the combat is lifted straight out of the Batman Arkham series. Even so, the game throws enough diverse tasks at the player to keep things feeling fresh and interesting. To me, that’s great because I enjoyed both. I loved the stealth and parkour of AC and the combat of Batman. Put that in the LoTR universe and you have a great recipe for a game. Shadow of Mordor is a LOT of fun ...

XOLO Play 8X-1100 Review

The XOLO Play 8X-1100 is the latest smartphone of the XOLO Play series. The 8X-11oo is marketed under a gaming phone tag. What exactly is a gaming phone different from any other phone? Don’t pretty much all phones operate most games on the Play Store or App Store? So what makes the 8X-1100 a “gaming phone?” Well that’s what I am here for… I’ve had this phone for over a week and you can tell from the phone that XOLO is somewhat new to the smart-phone business. When I first saw the phone, it wasn’t really that attractive. The dual color scheme worked against the phone. Most gamers prefer their devices in single colors, at least I did, or it could be my painfully boring taste in colors (my mum will testify to this). So I guess that’s up to personal preference. The dotted navigation buttons lo...

Xolo Play Tegra Note Gaming Review

When tablets first hit the market, I remember thinking to myself there was no way a device like that was going to last. I mean it was something fun to have but was it something someone would need in their day to day lives? And now I can’t go a day without seeing at least one person handling one of those 7-9 inch devices. When tablets first took shape it was in the form of the iPad. Then Android added a whole other dimension tablets for a whole new form factor.   Today we have here with us a the best gaming tablet in the market, the Tegra Note 7 powered with a blazing fast Tegra 4 chip and promises to be a big hit with the games. Does this tablet have what it takes to hold its own? Hardware As you can make out from the name, the device is a 7 inch tablet with a stylus that accomp...

World Cricket Championship Review

I use the Delhi Metro to travel almost everyday to get to work and I spend most of the commute looking down at my phone. Whenever I do manage to get my eyes off my mobile phone screen I find almost every other person glued to their own phones. Its a big thing now this mobile gaming here in India. Its going to be huge, if already not. After having said that I am going to review one of the games that keeps a lot of the Indian population occupied– World Cricket Championship. This game is highly addictive as it caters to the needs of a hardcore gamer as well as of a casual gamer. I played the game on the iPad Mini, Moto G and Lumia 720. World Cricket Championship worked pretty seamlessly on all the devices. Its a fairly simple game to get a hang of. While batting you use your left thumb ...

Bingo Mobile Future Star Review

Bingo Mobile is a rather new Indian manufacturer that delivers quality handsets on a given budget. They recently launched the first phone of their series the Future Star . The Bingo Future Star comes with 1.3 GHz Broadcom Quadcore processor with massive 5 inch HD IPS screen running Android Jellybean OS. This is low budget quad core handset with 1 GB RAM and 4GB internal storage. Is this the one that brings it home for Bingo? Let’s find out… So lets switch it on 🙂 Display & Camera The 5″ screen isn’t the sharpest you will find but at the same time you can’t really see the jagged edges either. It is afterall a basic IPS display. The contrast also is a bit shallow. But overall it is quite a good one for the price-point. The rear camera is a 13 MP with auto focus does well in good li...

BenQ XL2411Z Gaming Monitor Review

While purchasing hardware for a PC we as Gamers usually focus a lot on the kind of Graphic Card and processors to juice out the maximum out of our rigs.

MotoGP 14 Review

The world of motorsports is vast, but it has gone largely unrepresented on the latest generation of hardware (Both consoles and PC’s), as developers and publishers have taken their time to launch. That is until now, as MotoGP 14 has burst onto scene. {Of course it is still available on last gen devices and other PC Configs too} To start with Milestone, MotoGP’s Italian developer has given us more two-wheeled titles than anyone else in the business. It was the studio behind the SBK series, but since reconnecting with the MotoGP licence in 2013, Milestone has stuck to what it does best – and that’s delivering its classy style of semi-simulation riding physics beneath dated graphics. Thankfully, MotoGP 14 is a marked improvement while it’s never going to challenge the likes ...

Enemy Front review

Enemy Front puts you in the shoes of an intrepid American reporter covering the war. We recently reviewed Sniper Elite III as well which was set up in the same era. We feel CI Games has made a lot made a lot of progress in game development. Enemy Front brings us to old school World War 2 games where you can find nice old weapons, but not most advanced AI. So let’s delve a bit deeper 🙂 Gameplay Enemy Front depicts lots of controversial subjects you’ll come across depictions of atrocities being committed against civilians and partisans. If you choose to act you’ll be confronted with the nasty results. Choosing to rescue a person who’s about to be executed may be a heroic act, but it also means getting discovered and attacked by the enemy. Later on, you’ll have a harrowing walk through ...
