‘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 […]

‘The Jackbox Party Pack 4′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Jackbox Games have carved out quite a niche in the video game market – with a game and a mobile phone you can turn your console into a party machine, accessible to all the family no matter their age or experience. They’ve also found their games the subject of a LOT of YouTube videos… In […]

Review: Let’s Sing 2018 vs. We Sing Pop (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Seemingly revitalised by the likes of Now That’s What I Call Sing and the current-gen debut(s) of Rockband and Guitar Hero, the karoke game genre has, sadly, not found the success it once had. However things picked up at the beginning of this year when not one, but THREE new karaoke games were available in […]

‘Cartoon Network Battle Crashers’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

When Uncle Grandpa accidentally flips the multidimensional switch on his RV, he creates a tear in the universe that collides the worlds of some of Cartoon Network’s most beloved shows… That’s the set up for Cartoon Network Battle Crashers, the side-scrolling, kid-friendly beat ‘em-up from GameMill/Maximum Games – which has, a year on from its […]

‘Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

“Make America Nazi Free Again.” Just one of the highly emotive straplines used to promote Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus in the past few months and certainly, it feels, the most relevant. You see, whilst it has clearly been in development for some time, MachineGames seem to have captured the current state of world politics absolutely perfectly and […]

‘Heroes of the Monkey Tavern’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

What will gradually dawn on you about Heroes of the Monkey Tavern is what it doesn’t contain. No item wear; no exterior environments (in fact, very little variation in environments at all); no ammo counters; no gameplay variation; and no real story to speak of. It opens with a static painting of the titular tavern. […]

‘WWE 2K18′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

I’ve been playing WWE video games all my life – from the early days of the NES and the likes of Wrestlemania Challenge, through a myriad of consoles and handhelds, to as recently as WWE 2K16 on the PS4; and in that time the games have changed a LOT. So, after decades of change, why […]

‘Rogue Trooper Redux’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Originally released in 2006 and earning two BAFTA nominations for Best Character and Best Story, Rogue Trooper was one of the undiscovered gems of the PS2 – and for those gamers that played it, it still remains one of the best comic book, nay licensed, games on Sony’s console EVER. Technically (literally, from a technological […]

‘Cat Quest’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing that will get people’s attention on the Iinternet it’s cute cats. This is why when I loaded up Cat Quest I was a little worried about what I would find. To my surprise what I was presented with was a game that has the right level of nostalgia, and as […]

‘Offensive Combat Redux!’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

With the release of Call of Duty: WWII we spend a lot of time trying to stay alive, be a skillful player and grind our way up to better weapons and scorestreaks. That can be serious stuff, especially once ranked games begin. What about a first-person shooter that just wants to be funny, and just […]

‘Demon Gaze II’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

In Demon Gaze II, players take on the role of a mysterious, amnesiac hero who awakens in the bowels of the autonomous, steampunk inspired city of Asteria. Mysteriously lost in a cellar filled with steaming brass pipes and adorned with valves and levers, he or she has no choice but to follow the only people that […]

‘Perception’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

If you’ve played the Outcast or Amnesia games then you’ll know all too well the experience of running through corridors escaping an unknown entity. Perception is a similar game, but to complicate things it removes your vision, and pushes you into the world of the unknown. In Perception, you play the role of Cassie, a […]

‘Chaos; Child’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Set loosely in the world of Steins; Gate (if only because it has the same weird approach to naming), Chaos; Child is the direct sequel of Chaos; Head. The game takes place in a Japanese suburb known as Shibuya and the opening scenes of the story advise the player of a suspiciously localised and terribly powerful earthquake that occurred several […]

‘This is the Police’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

The low-fi graphics and simple, intuitive game play make This is the Police an excellent choice for adaptation to Nintendo Switch. The game is good too, with a gripping, mature story about a Police Chief on the verge of retirement and his dealings with the various factions that hold power in the city, all of […]

‘The Evil Within 2′ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Following its release around Halloween (surprisingly enough) of 2014, The Evil Within snagged a reasonable number of fans as a result of its visceral horror and engaging story, not to mention it’s association with Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. This year, The Evil Within 2 returns to plague long suffering protagonist Sebastian Castellano with yet […]

‘Super Mario Odyssey’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

Who’d have thought it? Barely eight months since Breath of the Wild brought us the first game of the year contender, Nintendo has gone and done it again. After the supremely taut, linear design of Super Mario 3D World on Wii U, and the semi-linear lines of the Galaxy (Wii) games, Super Mario Odyssey represents […]

‘Wulverblade’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

It would seem, given the amount of games hitting the market or announced as “in production”, that the side-scrolling beat ‘em-up is currently undergoing something of a resurgence. Back in the era of the SNES and Neo Geo you couldn’t move for such games, but with the advent of 3D graphics these types of games […]
