‘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 […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]

‘Sleep Tight’ Review (PC)

by Rupert Harvey

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 […]

‘Smoke and Sacrifice’ Review (PC)

by Britt Roberts

Smoke and Sacrifice has a very intriguing premise that initially drew me in, the tale of a mother searching for her child is one that will strike a chord with many people. Whilst my journey started off with me fully invested in the narrative, after a couple of hours my will was bending, not because […]
