‘Observation’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

I was a latecomer to Stories Untold, a friend recommended it to me less than a year ago and I loved its mood, tone, idiosyncrasies and the ingenious insertion of mini-games and puzzles as a way of moving the narrative forwards. When I got sent the review code for Observation and watched the trailer, it […]

‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 3: Wastelands’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

It’s been over three months since the last Life is Strange 2 episode. The long wait times between episodes is guaranteed to test the patience of many gamers. The reasoning for these long breaks is to make each episode the best it possibly can be when it’s released. Episode 2 was fine but it’s debatable […]

‘World War Z’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Based on the book and movie of the same name, World War Z is a modern-gen zombie shooter that reminded me very much of the fantastic Left 4 Dead franchise – in the best way possible of course! Insomuch as this is easily the most fun I’ve had with a AAA title in years… Let […]

‘The Messenger’ Review (PS4)

by Rupert Harvey

The debut game from Sabotage Studios, which was founded in 2016, is a decent enough hardcore platformer. It has great heart and a handful of neat ideas, but a myriad of niggles – not to mention a catastrophic late-game shift in gameplay – hold it back from sharing the pixel art pantheon with the likes […]

‘Kingdom Hearts 3′ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

I’m going to say the same thing every fan has said by now, but we’ve been waiting over a decade for Kingdom Hearts III. I doubt I’m the only one to have grown up in the time it has taken for this game to release. Sure, we’ve had story continuation since Kingdom Hearts II and […]

‘Resident Evil 2′ [Remake] Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

The Resident Evil series has an interesting history. It’s arguably the game that defined the survival horror genre but the previous decade for the series has had a few hit-or-miss entries. However, Resident Evil 7 took things back to their roots and ended up being the best game in the series in years. This remake […]

‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 2: Rules’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

It’s been a long wait for Episode 2. After the amazing debut, the expectations were running high so did ‘Rules’ deliver and prove to be worth the wait or did the momentum come to a halt? Life is Strange 2 – Episode 2: Rules takes place one month after the events of Roads. Sean and Daniel have […]

‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 1: Roads’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

If I had to sum up my experiences with the previous Life is Strange installments. I would say that I liked it but I didn’t love it. I went into the second main entry with the same expectations and by the end of Roads, I ended up thinking that this was the experience the internet […]

‘The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

With the new episode of Life is Strange 2 ‘Rules’ getting closer to its release, it makes sense to review the prequel to it: The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. This DLC came out long before we knew anything about Life is Strange 2 so playing it again after playing through the first episode of LiS2 […]

‘Spyro: Reignited Trilogy’ Review (PS4)

by Kat Wheat

Christmas day 1998… I was one lucky girl who got a PlayStation along with Spyro the Dragon game and Crash Bandicoot, flash forward ten years and with the success of the remastered Crash Bandicoot trilogy, Activision wasted very little time in a remastered Spyro trilogy. Spyro has returned and his attitude is fiercer than before! […]

‘Punchline’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

Before we get to the meat of the review, I feel like I have to add that I have nothing against visual novels. I’ve watched visual novel animes. I have liked a few of them quite a lot but before Punchline, I had never played a proper visual novel game. Something tells me that this […]

‘Soul Calibur VI’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

Soul Calibur VI had a lot riding on its success. Soul Calibur 5 was blasted for its weak story and how it replaced popular characters with not so great successors (if you can call them that). There were some people ready to declare the series as dead after its long absence. The decision was made […]

‘Grip: Combat Racing’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

I vividly remember Rollcage on the PS1, back when I was in my teens I would often play it with my uncle and the way that the cars would flip, barrel-roll and bounce around, whilst always hurtling forwards sticks in my mind as a good memory. What also sticks in my mind was a couple […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

My experience with Assassin’s Creed is pretty limited. I’ve only played Syndicate in full but I have paid attention to reactions to the series. I’m aware that not every Assassin’s Creed game has been a hit but the same could be said for every series that runs for a long time. The question is: Is Assassin’s […]

‘Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

It’s fair to say that right now, in videogaming, retro is king. Old franchises have been resurrected and/or remastered; new games chosing to 8-bit look; “mini classic” consoles aplenty… and, of course, video game compilation releases by the bucketload. But we’ve had re-release after re-release of the likes of Atari games, Sega Megadrive games, Capcom […]

Surprise surprise, we’re back with ANOTHER review of a karaoke game! What’s more surprising is that it seems Let’s Sing 2019 is the only update to any of this generations karaoke game franchises this year. So no head-to-head review for this year unfortunately.
