‘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 […]

Review: Just Sing vs. Now That’s What I Call Sing 2 vs. We Sing (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

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 […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 5′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Telltale’s Batman has come to an end with City of Light, and in many ways, has delivered what we expect from the company. With plenty of uses of the new features brought to the Batman game, this episode does feel to be a step forward, but has Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 5 – City […]

‘The Little Acre’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

While adventure games seem to be dominated by Telltale’s high action style, sometimes it is nice to look back to the good old point and click adventures. This is where The Little Acre comes in, offering exactly that but with some little extra twists to the game play… The first thing you notice about The […]

‘Just Dance 2017′ (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Wow. It has been a VERY long time since we reviewed a dance game here on Nerdly. So long ago that it was actually during our pre-Nerdly days as Blogomatic3000 that we last took at look at this small gaming sub-genre ( a genre that wasn’t that small back then). In fact the last games […]

‘Maize’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Corn fields are creepy, Stephen King taught us that. When you start playing a game though and see some of the corn seemingly taking a stroll through the rows, then it wouldn’t be long before you see death fast approaching. With Maize, which has released on PC though, death is the last thing you’ll be […]

‘Super Dungeon Bros’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Straight from the outset the game shines with character, with the ‘Bros’ being challenged to take on the dungeon and you are even asked to ‘Press X to Rock’. After this though, the character is somewhat diminished as the procedural maps of the dungeon crawler load in and you prepare to battle. The fun soundtrack […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 4′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

All it took was a glimpse of a certain character to get me excited for this episode. I didn’t worry that Bruce Wayne was going to be in danger in Telltale’s Batman Episode 4: Guardian of Gotham, or that Gotham could lose the protection of Batman. I finally got to see Telltale’s version of the […]

‘Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 3′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When a story reaches its mid-point there is a danger that the excitement will lull a little, until of course it again picks up pace. Telltale’s Batman Episode 3: New World Order is the third episode of Telltale’s take on Batman, with Bruce Wayne’s life descending into chaos, but strangely lacking in some of the […]

‘Airheart: Tales of Broken Wings’ Early Access Preview (PC)

While October and November tends to be the time the big Triple A games start to bite at our wallets and steal all our cash, that doesn’t mean that Early Access on Steam doesn’t hold a few decent finds. One of these is Airheart: Tales of Broken Wings. A fishing and combat battle game that […]

‘Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When choosing games to play, the JRPG can be an odd one. They have a certain style to them that is easy to love, yet are unashamedly eccentric in nature. That being said, I find I don’t have the time to invest in them. When I had the chance to dive back into the genre […]

‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

It is fair to say that Activision haven’t handled the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare well. The release of the game in such a restricted way created bad press, and an unpopularity around the release. The question is though, is Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare actually any good? There are certain rules I make for myself […]

‘Syndrome’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Halloween is just around the corner and gamers are looking for a few scares. With this in mind, it would seem that Syndrome is a game that has appeared at just the right time. Trapped in a space ship that appears to be infested with monsters, does it have what it takes to be scary? […]
