lego_the_hobbit_game

Traveller’s Tales is back again with yet another LEGO based title, though this time they’re tackling the realms of Middle Earth with LEGO The Hobbit.

So how does the latest entry fare when stacked up against previous efforts? Not too badly, not too badly at all.

TGC Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (PS4)

The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2-Pole
As a long time fan of the Spider-Man games and movies, it’s been a long wait for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a wait that almost wasn’t worth it.
Beenox has been handling the Spider-Man franchise over the last few years to varying degrees of success.

TGC Review: Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta: Episode 1

Unearthed-ArtUnearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta is just enough like Uncharted that it can be considered an homage. Is it an homage worth playing though? Can it satisfy your need for adventuring until Uncharted 4? Or will you have to settle for some NeoPets instead?

TGC Review: Men’s Room Mayhem (PS Vita)

MRM_LogoToilet humour is often described as the lowest form of humour. In the case of Men’s Room Mayhem, it’s nothing short of fantastic.

The premise might not sound like much, but it’s the subtle humour that will hook you on and drag you in.

TGC Mobile Review: Iron Man 3

iron-man-3-the-official-gameTo coincide with the release of the third installment in the Iron Man film franchise, Gameloft has released a tie-in game for iOS and Android devices, Iron Man 3.

So how does Gameloft’s latest movie tie-in far up? It’s not all that bad to fair, in fact, it’s a damn good time waster.

TGC Review: Star Trek

star trek 2013 video gameOver the last week or so I’ve been dipping in and out of Digital Extremes Star Trek. Playing 20 minutes here, half an hour there. Usually I can sit through a game for at least an hour without getting fed up, but Star Trek changed that.

TGC Review: Dead Island: Riptide

deadislandriptidelogoThe zombie menace is once again set to infect living rooms this Spring with Techland’s Dead Island: Riptide, but is it worth your cash?

It’s a tricky one to place if I’m honest. For the last week or so I’ve been pummeling zombies with the various weapons you can find or craft, but I can’t help but feel I’ve done it all before.

TGC Review: Bioshock Infinite

bioblueBioshock Infinite is a fantastic game. Nothing more to it. It has a great cast of characters, fun gameplay, beautiful scenery, a fantastic, engaging story, and more. It’s the kind of game you could wait seven years for, and after you finish you could say it was worth the wait.

TGC Mobile Review: Injustice: Gods Among Us (iOS)

Injustice-gods-among-us-ios-reviewInjustice: Gods Among Us has touched down on the iOS store a couple of weeks before the full console version of Injustice: Gods Among Us starts making waves on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.

Injustice: Gods Among Us on iOS is a free-to-play title, so there’s no need to spend any cash to get a taster of what’s to come later this month, though as is standard with free-to-play games, in-game purchases are encouraged.

TGC Review: The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

The-Walking-Dead-Survival-Instinct-logoThe Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a first-person shooter from Terminal Reality and publisher Activision, placing you in the rugged redneck boots of Daryl Dixon during the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse in a quest to re-unite Daryl with his older brother Merle Dixon.

TGC Review: Gears of War: Judgment

GOW-JudgmentThe Gears of War series has so far spanned three games, three games that complete and epic trilogy in the battle to defeat the alien menace, the Locust. Now we have a new title in the series that doesn’t take the franchise forward, but backwards.

TGC Review: God of War: Ascension

Kratos is bGod-of-War-Ascension-coverack, well, it’s more Back to the Future, but he’s back all the same in God of War: Ascension. Does it fare well for our favourite anti-hero? Or is it a bit of a dry lunch?

TGC Review: Far Cry 3

far-cry-3-logoIn the words of Gun’s and Roses “Welcome to the Jungle, we’ve got fun and games.” Far Cry 3 arrived with little fanfare, at least compared to other big name titles such as Call of Duty, which is a shame as everyone deserves to know about this game.

TGC Rewind Review: Unit 13 (PS Vita)

343147021_640A little late to the party, we’re getting our review of Unit 13 out to the masses. Considering it’s currently on offer on the PlayStation store, it seems fitting that you should at least read a quick review before putting your cash down on the table.

TGC Review: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

slycooperfullIt’s been 8 years now since a new Sly Cooper game, so I think it’s about time we got a new one. Originally done by Sucker Punch, they seemingly abandoned their beloved series by the time the PlayStation 3 rolled out and moved right on to what is now their (excuse this pun) infamous series, inFamous.

TGC Review: Aliens: Colonial Marines

aliens colonial marinesIt’s been a long, long wait, but finally Aliens: Colonial Marines has finally seen the cold light of day. It’s been five years, yes, five years in the making from Gearbox Software, the developers of the hugely successful Borderlands games. So what have they done with Aliens: Colonial Marines?

TGC Review: Lego The Lord of The Rings (PS Vita)

LEGO-LOTRThe Lego games have done what Activision have yet to manage with Call of Duty; they are now pumping out 2-3 Lego based games a year, and they are starting to suffer because of it.

Lego The Lord of The Rings is the latest big license to get the Lego treatment from Travellers Tales, with versions being made for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS and Windows.

TGC Review: Jetpack Joyride (PS Vita)

jetpack_joyrideWe here at The Games Cabin pride ourselves on being among the first when it comes to reviews, as well as being fashionably late with others.

Our Jetpack Joyride review falls under the latter category, but better late than never eh?

TGC Review: Darksiders

new tomb raiderSo in case you don’t know by now, Darksiders is the newest addition for PlayStation Plus this week, but is it worth those 10GB’s of bandwidth to download? Keep reading to find out, and I’ll put a “tl;dr” in for those of you who want it quickly summarized.

TGC Review: Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation

assassin's creed liberation ps vita gotyBetter late than never

Yes, we know, this is late. The games been out since October 30th in North America and October 31st in the UK and Europe, and being the terrible humans we are, it’s taken over a month and a half to get the review out the door.
