‘Infernium’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Infernium’s setup is a very interesting one that succeeds on many levels but doesn’t quite add up to a ‘must-have’ title. The slowly unfolding mystery of the early sections soon gives way to a frustration and sense of directionless-ness that even the intriguing setting and evocative atmosphere can’t quite save. Infernium drops you straight into the […]

‘The Bunker’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

After spotting Jeff Minter in Port Talbot last week, I’ve thinking about the Welsh video game industry as I can’t recall the last time that I played a game set in Wales or made by a Welsh Developer, so it was quite coincidental that this week I was sent The Bunker to review, a game […]

‘Metropolis: Lux Obscura’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Metropolis: Lux Obscura is a peculiar mix of gritty noir motion-comic and match-3 elements. Although this seems a somewhat strange combination and the game definitely has its flaws, I found myself strangely addicted to it. The game opens with the protagonist character, Lockhart, being released from prison and returning by bus to New York, where […]

‘Far Cry 5′ Review (PS4)

by Rupert Harvey

Hope County, Montana. The Seed family (imagine the Westboro Baptist Church with infinite funds and a thesaurus) have enthralled the region with a brand of ranting, right-wing propaganda, channeled through their fundamentalist Eden’s Gate Project. Promising the great Collapse is the Father, Joseph Seed. Beneath him are his deputies: two brothers and an adopted sister. […]

‘D/Generation’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The original D/Generation was one of my favourite Amiga games. The combination of a sci-fi puzzle game with such a unique take on the isometric genre moved along by such a minimalist story told in fragmented fashion really appealed to me and I worked my way through the game several times back on my trusty […]

‘Mad Carnage’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

‘Almost’ is the word that constantly came to mind when I was playing Mad Carnage. Never before have I played a game that comes so close to being inventive and interesting and yet misses the mark by just enough to make the game a chore to play, which is a real shame as the concept […]

‘Outlast 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

I played the original Outlast game on PC a few years ago and whilst I was a fan of the atmosphere and indeed of the game in general, I felt that it relied too heavily on jump scares. I also felt that although the claustrophobic setting added to the creepiness, it also detracted from game […]

Telltale Games ‘Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 5′ Review (PC)

by Kevin Haldon

Let’s for one moment forget about gameplay, lets take out of the equation graphics… In fact lets just forget about everything that has come before this episode of Telltales Batman: The Enemy Within and talk about the season finale story. We’ll cover the rest later! For me personally this installment of Batman: The Enemy Within […]

‘Outlast: Bundle of Terror’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

In Outlast: Bundle of Terror, Switch owners are treated to perhaps one of the most terrifying first person horror experiences ever made, which is even more personal as the result of the way in which Switch games immerse players so deeply into the experience. That said, Outlast is almost five years old now and despite […]

‘Train Sim World: Founders Edition’ Review (Xbox One X)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m a fan of first-person shooter games where the action is constant, and often the pace is aggressive. Sometimes though it is nice to relax and play a game like Euro Truck Driver where the open road and a time limit is your only enemy. This is a reason I looked at Train Sim World: […]

Vikings: War of the Clans is a strategy browser game where players take control of Scandinavian chiefs known as Jarls in order to build settlements, attain heroes and wage war against each other in a Viking themed world. The game uses striking 3D visuals that sets it apart from other browser MMO games and a […]

‘Gravel’ Review (PS4)

by Emma Rees

Gravel is an arcade style racer that is presented as if it were on a TV channel. Whereas many other games in the genre try hard to appeal to car enthusiasts, Gravel focuses more on fun and accessibility. Once you have set up your driver with a name and nationality, you can get started with […]

‘The Council: Episode 1 – The Mad Ones’ Review (Xbox One X)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m a fan of the many Telltale Games, and Life is Strange, but sometimes it feels like the choices made don’t really have enough of an effect. While this does not really ruin the story, it does lessen the danger of messing up your game. The Council: Episode 1 – The Mad Ones introduces us […]

‘Mulaka’ Review (PC/Steam)

by Rupert Harvey

Chihuahua-based indie outfit Lienzo, makers of the mediocre metroidvania Hunter’s Legacy, take the leap to polygons with 3D action-adventure Mulaka. It’s a very mixed bag, but overall its uniqueness and charm just about win out. The game is steeped in Mexican mythology. You are Sukurúame of the Tarahumara tribe, whose task is to gain the trust […]

‘de Blob 2′ Review (PS4)

by Emma Rees

There’s something therapeutic about bringing colour to an otherwise colourless world and bringing joy back to an area of grey, colourless oppression. de Blob was one such game, originally released in 2008, where you controlled a blob in his quest to stop Comrade Black and the INKT Corporation from removing all of the colour from […]

‘Disc Jam’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

Released on Windows and PS4 a year ago and out now on Switch, Disc Jam is a vibrant, solid, playable future sports game which does enough in spite of its gameplay quirks and lack of variety to be recommended for those looking for a fun local or online multiplayer experience. Let’s get it out of […]

‘Rad Rodgers’ Review (PS4)

by Emma Rees

Rad Rodgers is a 3D platformer inspired by games from the early nineties, such as: Conker the Squirrel on the Nintendo 64, Commander Keen on MS DOS and Ruff ‘n’ Tumble back on the Commodore Amiga. Those who played Conker the Squirrel will remember it for resembling a cute, kid friendly platformer that was actually […]
