OXCGN’s WWE ’13 Review
Best In The World?
by Chris Fox
© 2012 Chris Fox
Like Christmas, Easter and my yearly long, hard look in the mirror, WWE has arrived on our consoles once again.
This time, WWE Champion CM Punk graces the cover and a whole new single player campaign based around the infamous Attitude Era is included.
The question is; does WWE ’13 raise the quality margin or is it simply a set of ditto marks under last year’s release?
Wrestle this way…

OXCGN’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review (Single Player)
Is the story sacrificed on the multiplayer altar?

Love it or hate it, the fact is that there’s never been a more successful franchise in the history of gaming. Some people might disagree, but Call of Duty has gone from strength to strength – especially when you look at the number of copies sold and the size of the multiplayer community.
Like it or not, Call of Duty is probably going to be around for a while yet.
Fortunately for me, I love it, and have done since the first release of Call of Duty so I expect a lot more from each new release to keep me hooked.
Black Ops 2 may be the sequel to 2010’s Black Ops, but release-wise, it is following Modern Warfare 3.
Since this is a single player review only, I will say that following Modern Warfare 3 will not be easy because it was fantastic.

OXCGN’s Need For Speed: Most Wanted Review
Is Need For Speed “Burning out”?
by Arthur Kotsopoulos

In an opening cutscene introducing the player to Fairhaven, you could be forgiven for believing you were watching a fan made Bond film.
From the moment the voice over details how to become the Most Wanted, the production value is nothing shy of perfection. It’s present throughout the game and it’s at its pinnacle when being introduced to each of the 10 Most Wanted racers in Fairhaven.
Evidently though, this is where Criterion‘s Need For Speed: Most Wanted peaks and never really maintains this level of quality as you work your way through the 10+ hours you’ll sink into this game.

EA and Konami have released their latest iterations in their respective football (soccer) franchises and whilst in the last couple of years competition has been fairly stale, this year both studios have brought out the best in each other.
There’s a massive overhaul in both franchises from menu layouts, gameplay and added features. No stone has been left un-turned in bringing the most realistic representation of the world’s beautiful game.
I’ve split up this review in to different categories to directly compare certain aspects of both FIFA13 and PES13 (Pro Evolution Soccer 13) . We’ll start off with the what makes these football titles tick, the gameplay, as without it everything else practically falls apart.
Which of the two wins the 2012 Premiership?
FIFA 12 and PES 12 battle it out here
