‘Full Bore’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m the type of gamer who often likes to just explore without the threat of constantly dying. I’ll have my moments where I’ll venture into something like Dark Souls 2 but for the most part it’s fun to just discover things. This is why adventure games last longer for me… and games like Full Bore. Full Bore was born […]

‘MXGP’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to motor bike racing I tend to think of Superbikes and Motor GP, I’ve even played some of the games, though not for many years.  When loading up MXGP and making my way through the menu system to get to an actual race I knew that the races would be muddy and […]

‘Goat Simulator’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

What can you say about a game that was released on April 1st? Simple really, it was designed to be a joke.  Goat Simulator has something of a cult following now, it was made for fun and released as is including bugs and gamers are pretty much told to just go for it. The game […]

‘Life Goes On’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you have played games at all you know that death is always there.  The platform game puts those little traps, whether it be a jump too far, the monster ready to pounce or even a spiked pit just to take away those precious lives.  Life Goes On though is one of those different games […]

‘Dark Souls 2′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing I hate in a game its dying and losing progress that I have made.  What normally happens if this occurs is that I turn the game off and probably swear a lot, this is what many people would call a “Rage Quit”.  Why do I bring this up? Well the […]

‘Spelunky’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Did you ever play a game called Rick Dangerous? The fact I’m asking that probably ages me slightly.  It was a platform games based on Indiana Jones and the controls were horrible.  What Rick Dangerous had though was charm that kept on calling you back, and this is why Spelunky, a very similar character keeps on calling me […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 3: The Crooked Mile’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Sometimes I do wonder why I put up with Telltale Games and their adventures.  If it’s not The Walking Dead, now we have The Wolf Among Us to push us towards those hard decisions we don’t want to make, and when we do get rushed into them, realise we just did the wrong thing.  With […]

‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

South Park: The Stick of Truth was met with excitement by fans when it was first revealed, but nobody probably expected the fight the game itself would have to get release.  First with the death of THQ then with delays added onto it, the signs weren’t that good.  With the delays being used to improve the […]

‘Deadlings’ Review (iOS)

by Paul Metcalf

As a fan of the game Lemmings in its original form I remember the obsession of getting as many of the weird little creatures through the level as possible, though it was always fun to see how they could be killed.  The aim though was to make it through the levels by utilising the skills […]

‘Senran Kagura Burst’ Review (3DS)

by Phil Wheat

If there’s ever been a point of controversy in video games it’s those “weird” Japanese games that never get ported across to Europe and the US – you know the ones: those that feature gratuitous, often lingering shots of girls battling it out, be it in a beat ‘em up or JRPG. Back in the […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 2 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Oh The Walking Dead you know just where to stick that dagger don’t you? When I finished the first episode of The Walking Dead Season Two I should have known what was coming, it was just a way of easing you into the trap before it ripped your heart right out of your chest.  Looking […]

‘The Wolf Among Us Chapter 2: Smoke & Mirrors’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

It’s been some time since last October when we played the first chapter of The Wolf Among Us, it had us hooked and left us waiting for the next chapter.  Since then Telltale Games released the first chapter of The Walking Dead: Season Two and made announcements of the Borderlands games and Game of Thrones. Now […]

‘Dungeon Keeper’ App Review

by Paul Metcalf

I guess the first thing I should say when I discuss Dungeon Keeper is that I’m a fan of the original game.  When I played the new version that EA has released for iOS and Android devices my review basically was “This is a good freemium game, but it’s not Dungeon Keeper.”  So that is […]

‘Flappy Bird’ App Review

by Paul Metcalf

It all starts off fairly innocent, you load up the App Store on your phone and find your way to the games section looking for something to download.  There at the top of the chart is something called Flappy Bird, but you don’t bother to download it and give it no thought at all.  Then people […]

‘Rayman Legends’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

When looking at the heroes of platform games it’s easy to think of the two champions and kings of the hill, Sonic and Mario, who have managed to live side by side and be accepted as the dual kings of the genre. There have been some pretenders to the crown and many of these have […]

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 2 Episode 1 (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

Last year The Walking Dead Season 1 was named game of the year by many critics and deserved all the praise it got.  A game that was shaped by your moral choices it gripped you emotionally and by the time it let go it left you drained but wanting more.  Now as The Walking Dead: […]

‘Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know!’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

Adventure Time should be a cartoon that can easily be adapted to a game, many of its episodes tend to fit the very structure of a level in an adventure and the pop culture references provide so much material that it could be the best game ever.  This is one of the quandaries that Adventure […]

‘Deadfall Adventures’ Review (Xbox 360)

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to first person shooting games now people tend to think of the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield where the action is mainly based on multiplayer battles and the solo campaigns are somewhat of an afterthought.  Sometimes we get lucky though and we get something like Deadfall Adventures which while it may not […]

‘Final Exam’ Review (PS3)

by Paul Metcalf

Playing games can be a complicated experience sometimes, sometimes we want to play first person shooters, sometimes we want to play sports games and sometimes we want to play something that will make our brain work overtime. Then of course there are those times when we just want to beat up wave after wave of […]
