‘Raging Justice’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

As a thirty-four year old, I’m the perfect demographic for Raging Justice, a game that harks back to a time in the mid-90s when visuals were determined to be digitalised after pixels had ruled games for so long. Yes, visually Raging Justice has more in common with Batman Forever, Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat than […]

‘Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is a single-player game bereft of enemies or indeed any sort of combat. The gameplay is essentially a series of fetch and crafting quests, (which is admittedly something that can be levelled at quite a lot of other titles that DO have combat as part of their make-up) but what […]

‘The Council: Episode 2 – Hide and Seek’ Review (Xbox One X)

by Paul Metcalf

In the first episode of The Council we were introduced to the way that the new adventure game worked. Based on an RPG style system, many actions were dependant on having abilities that were earned in a skills tree. With a game also full of historical characters, may who couldn’t be trusted, interactions with them […]

‘Death Road to Canada’ Review (NIntendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Chiptune surf rock greets you into the world of Death Road to Canada, and yes, it’s as awesome as it sounds (I still maintain that the Surf Coasters music for the Runabout series is one of the best in gaming, if only they’d tour in the UK…and release records on vinyl!). The game sees you […]

‘Suicide Guy’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

As a fan of the Mr Karoshi games, I was very much looking forward to playing Suicide Guy as it read as a 3D version of my much-loved Mr Karoshi series, however it unfortunately has more in common with Hello Neighbor in it’s visuals and gameplay and it’s these issues that took the enjoyment out […]

‘Garage’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

From the TinyBuild stable comes Garage, a VHS-filtered, top-down shooter-cum-survival-horror developed by Russian outfit Zombie Dynamics. It sounds great on paper, but a multitude of issues prevent it from matching the games that clearly inspired it. You play Butch, a very butch janitor. You awaken in an underground garage to find that everything wants to […]

‘DragoDino’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

DragoDino is a vertical platformer that wows you with its vibrancy, jaunty music and characters but has a few issues under the bonnet that detract from the game reaching its full potential. The game play in DragoDino is simple, you are trying to regain your precious egg from the top of a tree and spend […]

As she re-enters her family home she finds everything abandoned and dilapidated which leads her to look into the mysteries of what became […]

In this edition we take a look at AeternoBlade, a new hack & slash game now available on the Nintendo Switch. Visually AeternoBlade looks like video games haven’t progressed […]

‘Late Shift’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Wales Interactive have continued their explorations into the FMV (erroneous, I know) genre with this, their newest title and whilst these games will always have their detractors due to the level of interaction / game length, it’s difficult to find fault with Late Shift as it’s such a stylish, well-acted and directed crime thriller that […]

‘Warhammer: Vermintide 2′ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one game that people would love to see debut on current-gen consoles (other than Half-Life 3) it is Left 4 Dead 3. While this seems to be a dream that will never come true, Warhammer have stepped into the breach (and the same “horde-like” genre) with Warhammer: Vermintide 2. I will warn […]

‘Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

There’s something oh-so appealing about the simplicity of the side-scrolling brawler. From the golden days of Renegade, Double Dragon, Final Fight and Streets of Rage, the genre has a pick-up-and-play appeal that suits a quick blast of local co-op gaming (which I am a huge fan of) and, if done correctly, can be pretty much […]

‘Infernium’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Infernium’s setup is a very interesting one that succeeds on many levels but doesn’t quite add up to a ‘must-have’ title. The slowly unfolding mystery of the early sections soon gives way to a frustration and sense of directionless-ness that even the intriguing setting and evocative atmosphere can’t quite save. Infernium drops you straight into the […]

‘The Bunker’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

After spotting Jeff Minter in Port Talbot last week, I’ve thinking about the Welsh video game industry as I can’t recall the last time that I played a game set in Wales or made by a Welsh Developer, so it was quite coincidental that this week I was sent The Bunker to review, a game […]

‘Metropolis: Lux Obscura’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Metropolis: Lux Obscura is a peculiar mix of gritty noir motion-comic and match-3 elements. Although this seems a somewhat strange combination and the game definitely has its flaws, I found myself strangely addicted to it. The game opens with the protagonist character, Lockhart, being released from prison and returning by bus to New York, where […]

‘Far Cry 5′ Review (PS4)

by Rupert Harvey

Hope County, Montana. The Seed family (imagine the Westboro Baptist Church with infinite funds and a thesaurus) have enthralled the region with a brand of ranting, right-wing propaganda, channeled through their fundamentalist Eden’s Gate Project. Promising the great Collapse is the Father, Joseph Seed. Beneath him are his deputies: two brothers and an adopted sister. […]

‘D/Generation’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The original D/Generation was one of my favourite Amiga games. The combination of a sci-fi puzzle game with such a unique take on the isometric genre moved along by such a minimalist story told in fragmented fashion really appealed to me and I worked my way through the game several times back on my trusty […]

‘Mad Carnage’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

‘Almost’ is the word that constantly came to mind when I was playing Mad Carnage. Never before have I played a game that comes so close to being inventive and interesting and yet misses the mark by just enough to make the game a chore to play, which is a real shame as the concept […]

‘Outlast 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

I played the original Outlast game on PC a few years ago and whilst I was a fan of the atmosphere and indeed of the game in general, I felt that it relied too heavily on jump scares. I also felt that although the claustrophobic setting added to the creepiness, it also detracted from game […]

Telltale Games ‘Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode 5′ Review (PC)

Let’s for one moment forget about gameplay, lets take out of the equation graphics… In fact lets just forget about everything that has come before this episode of Telltales Batman: The Enemy Within and talk about the season finale story. We’ll cover the rest later! For me personally this installment of Batman: The Enemy Within […]
