The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

As a novel that was loved by millions, it was inevitable that J.R.R Tolkien’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ would get a movie franchise, and with the success of the films, the videogames were sure to follow. By now however the LOTR fever has died down. That was until Snowblind studios unveiled The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. This new action-RPG had fans of the franchise grabbing up their swords in delight, but does this new adventure live up to its predecessors, or does it deserve to follow the ring into the fiery pits of Mordor? In short-none of them.

Dead to Rights: Retribution

Dead to Rights: Retribution is the third entry to the Dead to Rights series...and hopefully the last. This 3rd person shooter lacks just about everything that makes a game good. The story, gameplay and graphics all fall short of what we have come to expect from next-gen titles, and when placed beside other games of its type, this game stands out like a sore thumb.


As a passionate gamer, and a true lover of films, TV and entertainment, I decided to write a film review for some English Coursework at college. After the positive feedback I received, I went on to write a few more, as well as some game reviews. And now I have set up this blog and will try to post as often as I can in the hopes that I can help advise the public on what is and isn't worth buying or watching.

As well as English Language, I am also studying Film Studies and Psychology at college.
