‘DiRT 4′ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Right from the beginning, DiRT 4 obviously seeks to build on the success of the critically acclaimed DiRT Rally, whilst simultaneously reaching for the more mainstream audience of the previous entries in the series. It’s a much calmer experience than the other numbered entries, and where the art of the traditional rally has lost ground […]

‘Victor Vran: Overkill Edition’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

If you’re going to emulate a classic series like Diablo, you might as well get it right.

Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is […]

‘Zheros’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If, like me, you loved beat’em ups and miss the days of games like Final Fight and Streets of Rage – where the focus was to just beat up the bad guys and have some fun – well Zheros is a fairly generic throwback to that same idea of hitting things till they blow up, […]

‘The Town of Light’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

I have a love/hate relationship with walking simulators at the best of times, but a particular bugbear of mine is when they perform badly, which is almost always on consoles. From Layers of Fear to Firewatch, I’ve played some cracking games that were ruined because of poor console conversions. The Town of Light is firmly […]

‘Rime’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

When a game wants to tell the player a story, there can be many methods to do this. Some games though take the impressive option of not using a narrator to explicitly do this, but let the story unfold as part of the game, allowing the player to emotionally connect and interpret it for themselves.

‘Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

First person shooters. Yeah, lets just say that I don’t get along with modern-day FPS games. Give me Doom or its sequels, any games from the Unreal or Quake franchises. Hell, even the likes of Hexen and Duke Nukem 3D. Now THOSE are first person shooters I an get behind. But Call of Duty and […]

‘Seasons After Fall’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

To keep platform games fresh, many focus more on the puzzle element rather than killing the character with endless monsters looking for blood. Seasons After Fall is one of those games that uses the puzzle element more, and provides a nice relaxing walk through the seasons. The best way to go into the game is […]

‘Outlast 2′ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Playing the first Outlast game, it was a good blend of exploration, running for your life, and escaping monsters. When the sequel was announced, there was a high expectation of what would come. Now we’ve had chance to play Outlast 2, does it manage the same scares or is it just another forgettable horror sequel? […]

‘Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom’ Review (PS4)

If there is one genre of game that has pulled me in now I review games, it has to be the JRPG. While they tend to consume a lot of time, they tend to be full of lore, and drag you into a zany story. While sometimes they may not deliver, when they do they […]
