‘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 […]

‘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 […]

‘Outlast: Bundle of Terror’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

In Outlast: Bundle of Terror, Switch owners are treated to perhaps one of the most terrifying first person horror experiences ever made, which is even more personal as the result of the way in which Switch games immerse players so deeply into the experience. That said, Outlast is almost five years old now and despite […]
