‘Planet Zoo’ Review (PC)

by Matthew Smail

Planet Zoo is the direct semi-sequel to Planet Coaster, the modern classic that was released back in 2019. More importantly, Planet Zoo is the spiritual successor to Zoo Tycoon, and many of the Frontier Developments team who worked on both Planet games are of previous Rollercoaster and Zoo Tycoon fame. With this kind of heritage, you’d expect Zoo […]

‘Nobodies’ Review (PC/Steam)

by Britt Roberts

An Argentinian title which sets you in the blood-flecked shoes of the ‘cleaner’ for a shady government organisation, Nobodies takes a more casual approach, reminiscent of hidden object games more than graphic adventures but comes out a strong and enjoyable title with an interesting premise that gives it more character than similar games. Presented through […]

‘Tropico 6′ Review (PC)

by Matthew Smail

No-one (and I mean no-one) is as big a fan of the Tropico series as I am. From the delightfully infectious salsa music that perfectly captures both the Latin setting and the mischievously tongue-in-cheek nature of Kalypso’s twenty year old series to the lighthearted gameplay, I love almost everything about it. Despite this lifelong affection […]

‘Jagged Alliance: Rage!’ Review (PC)

by Britt Roberts

A spin-off of the Jagged Alliance series, Jagged Alliance: Rage! is definitely not Jagged Alliance 3, but does it stand on its own? Well, having only a had a brief dalliance with the series’ previous iterations, I came away from this newest installment with the feeling that it really shows its lower budget in some […]

‘Darksiders III’ Review (PC)

by Rupert Harvey

Finally, the long-overdue latest instalment in the revered action RPG series is here. This one has been developed by Gunfire Games, a team born from the ashes of Vigil Games. Gunfire worked on the “Deathinitive Edition” of Darksiders II – a game which, I’m sorry to report, retains its title as the best in the […]

‘Rage in Peace’ Review (PC/Steam)

by Britt Roberts

Rage in Peace takes a lot of inspiration from ‘trial and error’ platformers such as Super Meat Boy (which it directly references) and, of course…Rick Dangerous (I mention it because I can), but Rage in Peace focuses on a surprisingly in-depth narrative behind the grind and this elevates it somewhat above other types of game […]

I know what you’re thinking when you look at the title of this game, Britt is about to review a futuristic space-porno, but no… no I’m not.

‘The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep’ Review (PC)

by Phil Wheat

Although aware of the legacy of the previous The Bard’s Tale games which span over thirty years, the only game that I’ve played in the series prior to this was the 2004 title featuring Cary ‘The Princess Bride’ Elwes and didn’t find it particularly memorable. It’s unfortunate therefore that this new, ‘proper’ sequel (funded via […]

The first game out of the gate for indie devs We Are Fuzzy, Sleep Tight is an inviting idea, one which is immediately engaging – although its unbridled childish joy, infectious as it is, comes with serious caveats. As soon as you boot up the game, you know you’re in safe hands in terms of […]
