The 2012 High Score Reviews Game Of The Year Awards

It’s fair to say that whilst 2012 didn’t quite match 2011 in terms of the number of top class releases, it was still a pretty fantastic year for games considering we’re nearing the end of this console generation. High Score Reviews wouldn’t be a respectable gaming site without our own 2012 Game Of The Year […]

The War Z removed from Steam Steam has removed ‘The War Z’ from the Steam Store due to false advertising, as well as complaints from customers.

[REVIEW] Forza Horizon: Rally Pack DLC

Forza Horizon is, in my opinion, the best racer of the year. I also reckon it has taken it to the next step with its latest rally pack which came out this week (19th Dec 2012). The rally pack does exactly what it says on the tin, which is not surprising when some of the […]

[REVIEW]: THE ELDER SCROLLS V: DRAGONBORN

Never before have I been so divided about a game. Dragonborn is the latest piece of downloadable content for Skyrim and manages to be both brilliant and disappointing at the same time. I know that sounds confusing but bear with me. This new expansion pack re-introduces the island of Solstheim, with over 20 hours of […]

[FILM REVIEW] THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY

Last time cinema audiences found themselves in Middle Earth was for the Oscar winning triumph that was The Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King in 2003, and so, after 9 long years, returning there for Peter Jackson’s adaption of The Hobbit generated a lot of the same feelings within me as Toy Story […]

[TV REVIEW] THE WALKING DEAD: SEASON 3 – PART ONE

After a fantastic, if a little short, debut season, followed by an admirable if slow and budget cutting second season, it was difficult to know what exactly to expect from Season 3 of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead. Based on trailers alone it was easy to tell that things were going to escalate, […]
