‘Renowned Explorers’ & ‘The Emperor’s Challenge DLC’ Review (PC)

by Matthew Smail

Full disclosure: I’ve enjoyed my time with Renowned Explorers much more than I thought that I would. This charming, beautiful and deceptively detailed adventure game is everything that makes independently developed games such a rich and diverse source of engaging content. I say that because being a little bit frank, there’s a lot of goodness […]

‘Syberia 3′ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I remember the first two Syberia games for the fairly strong story and the fact that they were good point & click adventures when there seemed to be no others around. That was about thirteen years ago though, and now Syberia 3 has arrived to carry on the story, but is it worth the wait? […]

‘Antihero’ First Access Preview (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Sometimes it is feels good to be bad, and Antihero is all about being bad. A turn-based multiplayer strategy game it gives you the task of taking over the streets and becoming a master villain. That is of course unless your opponent does it first. To dominate the game map, you need to hire street […]

‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Let’s be honest. When Nintendo announced the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it was met with a less than stellar response. After all, technially this “new” Nintendo Switch game is anything but new… Instead the Switch iteration is a port of the existing Wii U game, with a few new bells and whistles and […]

‘Brawlout’ Early Access Preview (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of Super Smash Bros. you’ll know the fun of competitive platform fighting combat. The hectic battles to drive others off the edge of the platform, while not falling off yourself makes for good entertainment for audiences too. Brawlout is a new platform fighter that is recognisable as a ‘broslike’ game, […]

‘Outlast 2′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Playing the first Outlast game, it was a good blend of exploration, running for your life, and escaping monsters. When the sequel was announced, there was a high expectation of what would come. Now we’ve had chance to play Outlast 2, does it manage the same scares or is it just another forgettable horror sequel? […]

‘Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one genre of game that has pulled me in now I review games, it has to be the JRPG. While they tend to consume a lot of time, they tend to be full of lore, and drag you into a zany story. While sometimes they may not deliver, when they do they […]

‘Atari Flashback Classics Vol.1 & 2′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Retro gaming is huge right now. Huge. And it’s only getting bigger… From the like of fan favourites multiplatform consoles like Retron 5 and fab handhelds like the Supaboy S; to the NES Mini/Classic, an official re-release of Nintendo’s classic console – which only brought retro gaming further into the mainstream (as the constant sold […]

‘The Crow’s Eye’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When a game opens up with you in an old Victorian style building, there are some assumptions made. This is what happens when you first load up The Crow’s Eye. Wandering the corridors of the Medical University of Crowswood though, it isn’t long before things start to change. In 1947 four students disappeared within the […]

‘Switch or Die Trying’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Platform games had to adapt to survive in the latest generations of gaming, and they did so in many ways. You have the 3D style where the open world environment extended the way platforms were interacted with, then you had the ones that stayed 2D (or 2D.5) and upped the challenge. This is where Switch […]

‘Conan Exiles’ Early Access (P)Review

by Paul Metcalf

I never thought I’d really be into survival games, but looking at my Steam library tells a tale of zombie outbreaks and dinosaur training. With the likes of H1Z1 and ARK in my playlist, Conan Exiles probably fits right in… My style of survival is to be a loner though, and to enjoy the ability […]

‘Styx: Shards of Darkness’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

There is something about being mocked by Styx during Styx: Shards of Darkness that reveals what has improved since Styx: Master of Shadows. The green assassin with an attitude has received a sense of humour overhaul and it definitely shows. If you’ve played the original game, you’ll know what to expect in terms of gameplay: this is […]

‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ Review

by Rupert Harvey

There are many questions I was expecting to ask of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. How have Nintendo expanded beyond the increasingly regimented boundaries of their second flagship franchise? How will our hero, Link, fit into a world of Witchers and Far Cries, which have perfected their open worlds over the past […]

‘Torment: Tides of Numenera’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m by no means a role-playing games expert, but I like to delve into the genre sometimes and get lost in the worlds. Torment: Tides of Numenera has now been released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 and offers an interesting and deep experience for RPG fans, but has the release been worth the […]

‘Double Dragon IV’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Double Dragon IV is the latest installment in the long-running side-scrolling beat-em-up franchise, and picks up after the elimination of the Shadow Warriors in Double Dragon II (basically ignoring a LOT of the lesser Double Dragon entries). Released by Arc System Works, the game comes from producer Takaomi Kaneko, director Yoshihisa Kishimoto, character designer Koji […]

‘Tales of Berseria’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one style of game that has the ability to take you to strange places it has to be the JRPG. What this strangeness gives us though is games such as Tales of Berseria, where you play a Daemon with a blood sucking claw who wages a battle of vengeance against against exorcists. […]
