We’ve barely had time to fully explore Sapienza, and now a trip to Marrakesh is on the cards. Io-Interactive has somehow topped even episode two’s daunting scale, but while there’s plenty to see in this technically dazzling space, it doesn’t feel quite so cohesive as the first two episodes. Its areas feel compartmentalised in a way that makes proceedings feel more staccato than silky, but that won’t stop us making good on a bit of carefully planned violence.
Battlefield 4 PS4
With Battlefield 1’ s announcement, we fired up Battlefield 4 for old time’s sake. Clunky squad-creation tools may feel increasingly archaic, and its once-astonishing visuals are now starting to lose some of their sheen, but once you’re up and running, there’s still little to compare to a big old 64-player Conquest match. While the number of players still committed to the game continues to dwindle, there’s life in the old dogtags yet.
Drop 7 iOS
After several years of concerted effort, and lots of near misses, our Drop 7 scoreboard is now finally crowned with a high score in excess of a million. All that time spent sneaking games into every spare crack of the day has resulted in grandmaster-like forward planning and speed, but fending off each game’s inevitable collapse is tough for even the most committed players. Now, of course, we’re considering retirement.
