‘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. […]

‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to gaming, we tend to take change badly. Whether it be an update to the way the game runs, major changes to a franchise story, and even a lead character, we just don’t like it. There are times though that these changes can be good, and can help rejuvenate interest with the […]

‘Gravity Rush 2′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Originally released in 2012, Gravity Rush became something of cause-celebre amongst gamers. There were those that hailed the Vita exclusive title as one of the truly hidden gems on the platform: a beautiful looking title with gameplay unrestrained by traditional platform mechanics. Whilst there were others that denounced the game than little more than a […]

‘Rise and Shine’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of good old school platform games, you tend to have a love affair with any that happen to find their way to you. This is what happened to me when I was able to try out Rise and Shine. Like some relationships though, the punishment they cause can sometimes be […]

It’s been quite some time since video game store shelves were this packed with dance, rhythm and karaoke games – for the longest time it was left to Singstar Ultimate Party to hold the torch for the karaoke genre in the current gaming climate. Then came along Now That’s What I Call Sing and the […]

‘Moto Racer 4′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

If I’m honest I’d forgotten all about the Moto Racer franchise and with good reason, it’s been over 15 years since the third game was released (although there was apparently a Nintendo DS version of the game from the same developers as this). Since then motor racing games have come a long way – be […]
