Review: Let’s Sing 2018 vs. We Sing Pop (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Seemingly revitalised by the likes of Now That’s What I Call Sing and the current-gen debut(s) of Rockband and Guitar Hero, the karoke game genre has, sadly, not found the success it once had. However things picked up at the beginning of this year when not one, but THREE new karaoke games were available in […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×11: Great Again’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

So, the final episode of American Horror Story: Cult has arrived, and it feels like it has been quite a journey. Will it end in the way we expect, or will there be some random twist that makes everything make sense? When Kai’s (Evan Peters) world comes crashing down around him, Ally (Sarah Paulson) becomes […]

‘Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

“Make America Nazi Free Again.” Just one of the highly emotive straplines used to promote Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus in the past few months and certainly, it feels, the most relevant. You see, whilst it has clearly been in development for some time, MachineGames seem to have captured the current state of world politics absolutely perfectly and […]

‘Heroes of the Monkey Tavern’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

What will gradually dawn on you about Heroes of the Monkey Tavern is what it doesn’t contain. No item wear; no exterior environments (in fact, very little variation in environments at all); no ammo counters; no gameplay variation; and no real story to speak of. It opens with a static painting of the titular tavern. […]

‘WWE 2K18′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

I’ve been playing WWE video games all my life – from the early days of the NES and the likes of Wrestlemania Challenge, through a myriad of consoles and handhelds, to as recently as WWE 2K16 on the PS4; and in that time the games have changed a LOT. So, after decades of change, why […]

Stars: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe, Oscar Isaac, Gary Basaraba | Written by Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, George Clooney, Grant Heslov | Directed by George Clooney Legend has it that the Coen Brothers penned this dark satire back in the 1980s, around the time of Blood Simple.

‘Rogue Trooper Redux’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Originally released in 2006 and earning two BAFTA nominations for Best Character and Best Story, Rogue Trooper was one of the undiscovered gems of the PS2 – and for those gamers that played it, it still remains one of the best comic book, nay licensed, games on Sony’s console EVER. Technically (literally, from a technological […]

‘Cat Quest’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing that will get people’s attention on the Iinternet it’s cute cats. This is why when I loaded up Cat Quest I was a little worried about what I would find. To my surprise what I was presented with was a game that has the right level of nostalgia, and as […]

‘Dan Dare #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Alberto Foche | Published by Titan Comics I always think Dan Dare, rather like Captain America and Superman, is a victim of his own iconic status. He’s great as a symbol, as a painted cover or on a poster, but when it comes to putting him in good […]

‘Offensive Combat Redux!’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

With the release of Call of Duty: WWII we spend a lot of time trying to stay alive, be a skillful player and grind our way up to better weapons and scorestreaks. That can be serious stuff, especially once ranked games begin. What about a first-person shooter that just wants to be funny, and just […]

‘The Walking Dead 8×04: Some Guy’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While there has been so much happening in The Walking Dead at the start of season 8, one thing that has been glaringly obvious to horror fans, the King was heading towards a downfall. Last week we saw the start of that, but that wasn’t the end of the cost of Ezekiel’s (Khary Payton) over […]
