‘This War of Mine’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

War is something we see on television and in films, some of us even play it in games like Call of Duty, but we do so for entertainment.  We understand that there are wars out there and people get killed, but most of us are lucky and don’t have to face that. This War of Mine […]

‘Destruction’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The last game I played by publisher COSEN was the quirky Taiwanese puzzler Behind the Screen, which was relatively basic in its execution but had enough character to keep my interest up for the duration of the play-through. Destruction however, definitely feels more at home on a mobile device than the Nintendo Switch as its […]

‘Let’s Sing 2019′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

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. But what that does mean is that Let’s Sing has the entire […]

‘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 […]

‘Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

After helping to form PopCap Games in the early 21st century, Jason Kapalka went on to found Blue Wizard Digital, which found success a couple of years ago with the isometric/top-down horror puzzler, Slayaway Camp. The name was a riff on Robert Hiltzik’s 1983 cult slasher, but then the team landed a bona fide licence […]

In DIGITAL SHORTS we review some of the latest video games that are only available digitally (at least in the UK), in a short-form review format. In this edition we take a look at Spencer – a new puzzle platformer available now on the Nintendo Switch. Feeling like a low-end budget Playstation 2 title from […]

‘Danger Mouse: The Danger Games’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Danger Mouse: The Danger Games is a port of a (free) mobile game to the Nintendo Switch and the fact that, after paying for the game, the mobile games’ original paywall is still in effect feels like a poke in the eye and whilst some aspects of the game are fun, the repetitiveness and cynicism […]

‘Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

The last time we saw William “BJ” Blazkowicz, in 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, he was in a pretty rough state. For this sequel, ported to Switch by Doom geniuses Panic Button, we get a prologue bringing the player up to date, and then the game kicks off from the moment of Blazkowicz’s resurrection. Since […]

‘Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered’ Review (PS4)

by Rupert Harvey

It was hardly a vintage year, but 2009 did bring us a few classics: Minecraft, Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2, Red Faction Guerrilla… Wait, what? That’s right, THQ Nordic have just updated the third and best of the bonkers third-person shooter/smasher series. This PS4 version boasts 60 glorious frames, and on the Pro we’re blessed with […]

‘Raging Justice’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

As a thirty-four year old, I’m the perfect demographic for Raging Justice, a game that harks back to a time in the mid-90s when visuals were determined to be digitalised after pixels had ruled games for so long. Yes, visually Raging Justice has more in common with Batman Forever, Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat than […]

‘Garage’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

From the TinyBuild stable comes Garage, a VHS-filtered, top-down shooter-cum-survival-horror developed by Russian outfit Zombie Dynamics. It sounds great on paper, but a multitude of issues prevent it from matching the games that clearly inspired it. You play Butch, a very butch janitor. You awaken in an underground garage to find that everything wants to […]

‘DragoDino’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

DragoDino is a vertical platformer that wows you with its vibrancy, jaunty music and characters but has a few issues under the bonnet that detract from the game reaching its full potential. The game play in DragoDino is simple, you are trying to regain your precious egg from the top of a tree and spend […]

‘Warhammer: Vermintide 2′ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one game that people would love to see debut on current-gen consoles (other than Half-Life 3) it is Left 4 Dead 3. While this seems to be a dream that will never come true, Warhammer have stepped into the breach (and the same “horde-like” genre) with Warhammer: Vermintide 2. I will warn […]

‘Infernium’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Infernium’s setup is a very interesting one that succeeds on many levels but doesn’t quite add up to a ‘must-have’ title. The slowly unfolding mystery of the early sections soon gives way to a frustration and sense of directionless-ness that even the intriguing setting and evocative atmosphere can’t quite save. Infernium drops you straight into the […]
