‘Skullgirls 2nd Encore’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

2D fighters are my gaming bread and butter, having been weened on to them at an early age thanks to side-scrolling efforts such as Double Dragon and Streets of Rage and discovering the grand-daddy of 2D fighters, Street Fighter at an arcade in Majorca back in the 90s. Since then I’ve played them all, from […]

‘Vampyr’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

Life as a vampire in London 1918 isn’t an easy job to undertake, especially when you are a surgeon. With the streets full of vampire hunters and even the odd werewolf, you are in control of just how chaotic the streets are. So what will you do in Vampyr, feed off the innocent to get […]

‘Zombieland: Double-Tap – Road Trip’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

As a fan of twin-stick shooters, my love for the genre as a whole was the only thing that kept me invested to the end of this rushed and mercifully (yet, for the price, unjustly) brief cash-in. There’s nothing wrong with a generic film tie-in for fans to tuck into, it’s a tale as old […]

‘Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

The fourth in Frozenbyte’s now decade-old Trine series shows that refining something can be just as enduring as re-inventing it. Some minor issues aside, Trine 4 is a triumph in the platform-puzzle genre and, should it be the last in the series, a hell of a way to go out. Moving away from Trine 3’s […]

‘Overwatch: Legendary Edition’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

If you have somehow missed it, Overwatch is a team based multiplayer shooter that has been very popular for about 3 years. It comes from Blizzard, so you know it seems simple but has been obsessively designed. It is now up to something like 31 playable characters, which are all wacky cartoons that really do […]

‘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 (PS4)

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 […]

‘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 […]
