‘Little Town Hero’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Game Freak seem to be taking some flak for moving away from the Pokemon franchise, which they have been synonymous with for quite some time. In truth, Little Town Hero doesn’t deviate too far from the card-battling formula. With a surprisingly in-depth battle system and being set in a quaint, odd little village, it may […]

‘Valfaris’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Although I’m not an ardent fan of the genre (my personal tastes lean more towards prog-Rock that an all-out metal), games that focus heavily on the genre of metal can be very cool. From the cult classic Brütal Legend to the more recent Double Kick Heroes, sometimes the gameplay shines through and, with tongue firmly […]

‘Nobodies’ Review (PC/Steam)

by Britt Roberts

An Argentinian title which sets you in the blood-flecked shoes of the ‘cleaner’ for a shady government organisation, Nobodies takes a more casual approach, reminiscent of hidden object games more than graphic adventures but comes out a strong and enjoyable title with an interesting premise that gives it more character than similar games. Presented through […]

‘AeternoBlade 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A 2.5D hack and slash game with some really nice ideas, AeternoBlade 2 starts off relatively strong, if scrappy and flawed. Fast-forward a few hours, however and the bugs, odd design choices and glitches become harder to ignore, eventually reaching a point rendering the game unplayable. Carrying on seemingly straight after the first game in […]

‘The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I grew up as a Sega kid, but always loved playing the Nintendo first-party original titles, and when I got a Gameboy at the end of the 80s I was immediately hooked. The Legend of Zelda is one of those Nintendo titles that just screams quality and has since 1987 when the very first Zelda […]

‘BurgerTime Party!’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A fun little game that is best played with friends in a ‘dip in and out’ way, if you are a fan of the original BurgerTime (Data East, 1982), this literally plays like a remastered version with multiplayer added. Good. For those not familiar with this niche food-related genre of gaming, the main gameplay loop […]

‘Diablo 3′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

The PC / video games market is a strange beast. Once a game is released with huge fanfare, it immediately withers on the vine and as the lustre of those shiny treats dims, we can see significant price cuts after only a week or so on the market. There is always something new, something that […]

‘Mutazione’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A pleasant, narrative-driven adventure with strong audio work, Mutazione is a wonderful world well worth visiting… Kai is a teenager from a fractured but loving background, with the tables turned in their relationship, Kai is the one that looks after her mother until she is asked by her grandfather to visit him on his island […]

‘The Surge 2′ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

Having never played the original The Surge and, upon reading into it, finding out that it was dismissed by some as a Dark Souls clone, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from this sequel. After spending several hours with The Surge 2 I was surprised to find that, whilst it does come from that […]

‘Castle Crashers Remastered’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Castle Crashers holds a special place in my heart, released pretty much a decade ago when local co-op was begging for rocks to eat whilst wearing nothing but a skirt fashioned out of crudely sewn-together crisp-packets and shoes make from cereal boxed wrapped in parcel tape, it was a dark time indeed for those of […]

In DIGITAL SHORTS we review some of the latest video games that are only available digitally (at least in the UK), in a short-form review format. In this edition Britt takes a look at party game Talk It Out. Talk It Out is harmless enough but feels unfortunately like a failed experiment, rendering it cumbersome […]

‘Devil May Cry 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The only game in the Devil May Cry series that I’ve played was the relatively recent reboot, with the original four games completely passing me by (they were released during a time I did hardly any gaming. What dark days they were) and so it was with no expectations that I went into this recent […]

‘Deadly Premonition: Origins’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A wonderfully bonkers and yet flawed title from 2010 sees release on the Nintendo Switch. Whilst technically unimpressive, the game draws you in almost on sheer curiosity alone with its premise and execution. In my eyes definitely deserves the cult classic title it holds in the industry. I do have a personal history with Deadly […]

‘The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

I’ve been a fan of the Telltale The Walking Dead series right from the very beginning. In fact, I was a big Telltale fan. I loved many of their titles, from The Wolf Among Us to Borderlands to their Game of Thrones title, but The Walking Dead was their best work, bringing a brand new […]

‘Bear With Me: The Lost Robots’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I’m a longtime fan of point-and-click adventure games. I remember spending hours with titles like Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. I think the genre, though not as popular as it perhaps once was, can be absolutely awesome and a lot of fun. A sure-fire change of pace from the intense and full-on video […]

‘Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

Secret Files 2 was released about ten years ago, and this port of that game is very much the same game we got back in 2009, albeit with a few little improvements. It sure does feel like you just popped your PS2 on to play it though, feeling dated and tired as you make your […]

‘Agent A: A Puzzle In Disguise’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

So, Agent A: A Puzzle In Disguise was initially released as a mobile game back in 2015. An episodic puzzle-game, its been ported over to the Nintendo Switch on a release that allows you a chance to play all of those episodes. A game that is a visual homage to spy films from the 60s […]

‘Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

If you’re already a fan of Susanna Clarke’s alternate history novels that began with Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, you’ll already be more than a little familiar with the concepts that she is famous for. In summary, this is a world in which magic once existed and was lost over time, but through the mysterious […]

‘Creature in the Well’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A quite unique blend of dungeon-crawling and pinball, Flight School Studio has created a stunning blend of genres that works so well that I’d be more than happy to see it become the grandfather of a niche sub-genre pop up for us all to enjoy. You play as the last remaining BOT-C unit, your quest […]

‘The Long Journey Home’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A space adventure with a focus on crew and fuel / resource management, The Long Journey Home is an interesting and detailed title but seems to focus on the more mundane aspects of itself which makes the exploration of space more of a chore than it perhaps should be. Beginning with your crew selection, The Long […]
