Call of Duty is going back to WWII – Is that a good call?

5 fresh faces drop in to Xbox One backwards compatibility – Are they worth the return?
I reckon it’s safe to say that no Xbox 360 title arriving on Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility now will be quite as anticipated as that of last week’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but that doesn’t mean there aren't still hundreds of cracking titles that we’d like to see make their way onto the scheme. The latest batch of arrivals brings five new games across to Xbox One, none of which have really been at the top of the wish list for many players. But are there a few gems in there you should be returning to?

What Star trek can learn from the Mass Effect formula
Even by now, still close to the launch window, numerous bugs in animation have been well documented, T-poses and dead eyes being at the forefront. However, rather than really delving too much into the problems of Mass Effect: Andromeda, I want to talk about the bright aspects of not only the game but also the general Mass Effect formula and how I feel its structured gameplay could be applied with great success to another sci-fi IP – Star Trek.

As those of you who have been following the streams of Bungies Age of Triumph will already know, it released on Tuesday March 28th to a waiting universe. Obviously, I was there to join in the festivities, and to see if it really is the fitting send off to Destiny that Deej et al promised.

Xbox Game Pass – Is it worth another subscription?
The Xbox Game Pass is the latest subscription service to be unveiled by Microsoft and is set to hit Xbox One later this year, joining the likes of EA Access as it looks to offer gamers a strong collection of games for an affordable monthly price, all that can be downloaded and played fully whilst your subscription remains active. But will it be any good?

Far Cry 3 arrives on Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility – Is it worth the return?
I’m a big fan of the Far Cry series. I'm an even bigger fan now that Far Cry 3 has emerged on Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility. But as another title arrives and crosses the generation gap, the question still has to be asked - is it really worth the return?

The Destiny 2 Trailer : A Fanboy Squeaks!
So, Destiny 2 is a thing. A thing that is coming on September 8th, and yes, since you ask I have booked the day off work! I'm going to look here at what I can cull from the trailer, any clues as to what it all means, and hopefully refrain from running around, clutching myself while going "Squuuueeeee!"

2 new games arrive for fans of Xbox Backwards Compatibility – but are they worth the return?
It’s been a busy time for backwards compatibility arrivals with several new titles coming to the program in recent weeks dropping some fantastic fan favourites, as well as some equally great lesser known sensations to the Xbox One. But in the usual unexpected fashion it seems there is yet another set of games that have been added to the collection, but is it worth a return to the latest titles? Basically put, should you be playing them...or ignoring them?

Four new arrivals hit Xbox One Backwards Compatibility – Are they worth the return?
Today adds more value to the Xbox Backward Compatible scheme, with four new arrivals making their way to Xbox One. But whilst we’ve seen our fair share of titles arriving on the program, not all have been the triple-A blockbusters that fans have craved the return of. So, with that in mind, here’s our thoughts on the latest backwards compatibility titles and if they are worth the return.
Having been Xbox gamers since 2002 when the original big black box hit the UK, taking in all the 360 years and now being overly excited for the One, we could never find a place that would only cover the interesting, exciting stuff from the world of Xbox. Hence, TheXboxHub was born.
Covering only the best in the latest news and reviews for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One, we aim to be a one stop hub for all your Xbox needs, without all the useless guff that you really don’t want to know about.
This Site is part of the official Xbox Community Network, meaning the games we get to review come from the very highest source...Xbox themselves!
