‘Afro Samurai 2′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Based on the animated series of the same name, the original Afro Samurai game was something of an underground hit with gamers, especially those that also enjoyed the TV show on which is was based. Whilst the game didn’t reach the dizzy heights of being a mainstream (aka financial) success, it did garner enough of […]

‘Saint Seiya: Soldiers Soul’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Saint Seiya is a franchise that has been around since the mid-80s and whilst it hasn’t really translated well to the UK, the series, also known as Knights of the Zodiac, has a huge fanbase in the US and aross the rest of Europe. Personally I’ve never seen a single episode of the anime or […]

‘Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson’ Review (3DS)

by Phil Wheat

Senran Kagura Burst was one of my personal favourite fighting games of last year so I was incredibly excited to get my grubby little hands on the sequel, once again released on the Nintendo 3DS, Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson. If, like me, you enjoyed the first game, you’ll be pleased to hear that this […]

‘SOMA’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m not sure why we like horror games, especially the ones where we aren’t even given the luxury of a weapon. SOMA is a new science fiction game that follows many of the traits shown in previous Frictional games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, but also makes you feel like a bad human being in […]

‘Layers of Fear’ Early Access Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If I said that the PC now has its own P.T would I have your interest? I hope so. This is what Layers of Fear is, it manages the same scares and messes with your head much in the same way as the Silent Hills teaser did. It also has the same problem in that […]

‘Until Dawn’ – A Horror Fans (Re)View

by Phil Wheat

I’ve been gaming for years, for longer than I have been a horror fan in fact. From the ZX81 through the Acorn Electron, Commodore 64, NES, SNES, Megadrive and beyond, and even back in the early days there were attempts to meld video games and movies. Be it cinematic style games like It Came From […]

‘Corpse of Discovery’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When playing Corpse of Discovery I can’t help but think about No Man Sky. I’m not comparing the two, but instead if this game did anything it proved to me that exploring alien worlds is something that I really enjoy, even if there is no combat included in the game. Corpse of Discovery is a […]

‘Mad Max’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Game releases, just like movies and other forms of entertainment can at times be all about timing. Who would dare go up against Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain? I guess you would have to be mad… Mad Max. The story for Mad Max sticks to a tried and trusted form, Max loses his […]

‘Gryphon Knight Epic’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

While some games are designed to show off just how powerful the new console hardware is these days, or how impressive they can look on top end PCs, there are also games that look back to the 2D days of platform games and shoot ‘em ups. Gryphon Knight Epic is yet another one of those, […]

‘Tales from the Borderlands: Ep 4 – Escape Plan Bravo’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing you can say about Telltale Games, it’s that they take themselves too seriously at times. The Walking Dead hit hard at your emotions, Game of Thrones has tried the same. Tales from the Borderlands brings back the fun – for the most part – it also tried to keep things […]

‘Monster Truck Destruction’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Maybe I’ve been spoilt by the choice of games I play on my PC, but I tend to expect a certain quality. I’ve played games on the platform for years, all the way back to the pre-DirectX days. This may be why I took such a disinterest to Monster Truck Destruction. When I started to […]

‘Missing: An Interactive Thriller – Episode One’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there was one game style that you would not expect to come back it would be FMV, it was a definitely a Nineties thing and with technology moving on so much with graphical quality there is no real reason to bring it back. That of course, does not mean that a game is not […]

‘Life is Strange – Episode 4: Dark Room’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When Life is Strange Episode 4: Dark Room was downloading I knew that it would be a tough one to get through. I made certain choices that pushed my game a certain way, and now I had to face them. Without giving away spoilers, I’d saw we were taught that messing with time has consequences, […]

‘Poly Bridge’ Early Access Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Building a bridge should be easy; it should be just creating a road that goes from point A to B over a unpassable area. Play Poly Bridge though and you’ll find that there is a lot standing in the way of holding a bridge up in the air, and physics suck. Poly Bridge tends to […]

‘Skyhill’ Preview (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If the apocalypse strikes and the monsters have taken over would the penthouse in a hotel be the best place to find yourself? Skyhill is a game that starts you off trapped in the luxury apartment, with the aim to not only survive but make it the bottom floor, or that is what I’ve been […]

‘Game of Thrones: Episode Five – A Nest of Vipers’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

While the illusion of choice is somewhat waning now in Telltale Games, Game of Thrones: Episode Five – A Nest of Vipers proves that they can still tell a good story and kick you in the gut. More importantly, they can create a game that can stand tall in the world of Game of Thrones. Especially […]

‘Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 3 – Catch a Ride’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Telltale Games have reached a level with me where I enjoy the story, but the choices don’t have that much risk to them, if anything I’ve become cavalier with them. This isn’t a bad thing but there is a level of familiarity that tends to disconnect me from any danger and emotion. That was until […]

‘LEGO Worlds’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

LEGO seems to be something that is universally loved, unless we stand on a piece of it then we end up swearing at it of course!  When Minecraft was created we were given a huge world created by blocks, and you could either try to fight for survival or just be creative and build whatever you want.  […]

‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When games suffer long delays the worry tends to set in.  The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was arguably one of the biggest releases for the so-called next generation of gaming, but with the release date constantly changing the question seemed to change from how good it would be, to what would we finally get in […]
