‘Riptide GP Renegade’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

We’ve reviewed a lot of racers, arcade or otherwise, on the Nintendo Switch since its release 9 months ago and whilst they’ve all had their own quirks and, sometimes, flaws none of them have been quite like this. Imagine taking the traditional arcade racers, throwing out all the vehicles, add in TONS of water, jumps, […]

by Rupert Harvey

Borrowing heavily from the likes of the Magicka and Diablo series, Frozenbyte, the Finnish team most famous for Trine, offers Nine Parchments – another game set in a whimsical world of wizardry. But leave your puzzling hat and exploration compass behind, because this is strictly a twin-stick shooter dressed in high fantasy clothing. Instead of […]

‘The Sexy Brutale’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

Originally released on Steam and the big boy consoles back in April, this bizarre and intriguing puzzle-adventure game now gets its Nintendo release. It’s as beguiling as ever, but the switch to Switch brings major problems. You play Lafcadio Boone, who awakens in the titular casino mansion at noon. Throughout the day, several guests will […]

‘Star Ocean: The Last Hope’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Where Star Ocean remasters are concerned, PS4 owners have been somewhat spoiled of late. Star Ocean: The Last Hope is the fourth of the series to be released on Sony’s latest console, and this one in particular should draw the attention of PS4 Pro owners, thanks to its promising 4K and Full HD Remaster moniker, […]

‘Mantis Burn Racing’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

When I first heard about Mantis Burn Racing and saw it was a top-down racer my thoughts went back to the old racers, like Super Off Road, Pole Position, et al. many of which had a fixed camera, and how much I disliked that style. Thankfully while that is one camera option for this game, […]

‘L.A. Noire’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

It’s unfortunate, really, that games like L.A. Noire come around so infrequently, considering how well received they tend to be when they do. What kind of game am I talking about? Smart, cerebral games that force the player not to think; not just about individual puzzles, but also about the bigger picture. L.A. Noire offers a very […]

‘Spintires: MudRunner’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When looking for a game to play, driving around in a truck isn’t really something that would seem appealing. If you try one of the truck simulator games though, you’ll know that hours can be spent on the road just driving to each destination. Now imagine a game like that, and add lots of mud, […]

‘Tallowmere’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

As many have said before, the sheer number of indie games that have made their way onto the Nintendo Switch is simply astonishingly and at the same time, hugely promising. For indie developers, the commonly used NVidia architecture of the Switch makes converting existing games an absolute doddle, which is exactly the case for Tallowmere, an […]
