‘Anima: Gates of Memories – Arcane Edition’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Released back in 2016 on PS4 and now ported to Nintendo Switch, Anima: Gates of Memories is a Japanese-inspired action adventure game based on a table-top board game. Naturally rich with lore, this release has some really solid good points but the difficulty and strangeness of certain design choices can be off-putting. The game begins […]

‘The Banner Saga 3′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

I found reviewing The Banner Saga 3 to be a bit strange as the recap of the story thus far seemed really brief but the way the game was presented was in such a way that I felt like I was supposed to have a deep connection with the characters, but as I have never […]

‘Tanzia’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Although Tanzia is a game that initially charms with its cute characters, vibrant colours, joyful sound track and strong introduction sequence, the actual playing of the game feels like a HD re-master of a PS2 game with floaty, weightless controls and repetitive game play that unfortunately takes away too much fun from the title to […]

‘Code of Princess Ex’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Code of Princess EX is not a particularly good game. The anime cinematics, rich character portraits, seemingly epic story and bonkers music quickly gives way to tedious, repetitive game play. The fact that this relatively direct 3DS port is a full-price game seems pretty absurd. As mentioned above, the opening cinematic is of a really […]

‘Hand of Fate 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

I played the original Hand of Fate for the first time only a few months ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. As a fan of board games such as Hero Quest, it felt unique in the way that it combined action /adventure- style combat with card-based adventure games and even a hint of the old-school ‘choose […]

‘No Heroes Here’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A few months ago, I reviewed a game on the Switch called Super Chariot which made something (dragging a coffin around catacombs) feel like a slog in single player mode, but was transformed into a belly-laugh-athon in multiplayer. The exact same thing stands here for No Heroes Here, there is a single player mode, but […]

‘Ghost 1.0′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

I want to get this straight out of the way. I am loving my time with Ghost 1.0. As a sucker for Metroidvania games, I was really excited to be given this game for a review and was pleased to see that it strikes a very delicate balance between gentle grinding, humour, sci-fi tropes and […]

‘Grave Danger’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The last time that I played a puzzle-platformer that required on-the-fly character switching to make use of their separate powers was Lost Vikings and that was many moons ago. I’ve heard of other games in a similar vein recently, such as Trine but I haven’t got around to playing them. As a relative newcomer to […]

‘Kill the Bad Guy’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Kill the Bad Guy is an odd one, originally released on Steam in 2014, it appears to be one of the many thousands of games that got lost in the shuffle. Now re-released on the Nintendo Switch, I’m not sure if it will find its audience here either, as this feels a lot like a […]

‘Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Almost a dozen hours into the game, I still have no idea what the title is referring to, so I’ll have to update the review should I ever find out. What is important though, is that the praise that this game received when released originally in 2016 on the PS4 and Vita is well-deserved and, […]

‘Dream Alone’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

An interesting backstory and intriguing setup isn’t enough to halt the game play issues that come from this 2D platformer, a strange mesh of Limbo and Rick Dangerous. Dream Alone casts you in the part of a young boy, seemingly the sole survivor of his village and doomed to traipse through a dismal landscape. As […]

by Britt Roberts

The Journey Down is a traditional graphic adventure game with the standard point and click interface but a unique setting and tone. Having been around in various forms since 2010, this final re-vamped version on the Nintendo Switch is easily the most definitive and feels right at home on the platform. The setting of The Journey […]

‘Smoke and Sacrifice’ Review (PC)

by Britt Roberts

Smoke and Sacrifice has a very intriguing premise that initially drew me in, the tale of a mother searching for her child is one that will strike a chord with many people.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of FMV games, Wales Interactive have released some thoroughly enjoyable games recently with The Bunker and Late Shift and I also played the mystery game Contradiction which although flawed was an enjoyable experience.
