‘The Complex’ Review

by Chris Cummings

The Complex is a sci-fi interactive movie game from Wales Interactive and is available to “play” on the Nintendo Switch, Windows, MacOS, XBox One and PS4. I’ve played games like this before, such as The Bunker, so I know the genre. It’s basically a movie in which you make the odd decision, taking the story […]

‘Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 2′ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

Trails of Cold Steel is a series that I, sadly, have been very much unfamiliar with. The cool opportunity to play this title came up, however, and so I gave it a shot, without the knowledge of what I was getting myself into or any information about the previous titles in the series. Many fans, […]

RETRO-spective: Catherine

by Xenia Grounds

Valentine’s Day wasn’t too long ago and a game that I think about around this time is Catherine. Mostly because it does have a large focus on relationships and also if you’re single, you’ll probably be grateful for it after this game. Catherine is absolutely hilarious and full of adult humour but it does have something […]

‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ Retrospective

by ApolloXL5

If you’re somewhat of a cinema buff and love watching TV shows, love Netflix, HBO, and so on, chances are you’ve already heard of The Witcher. While it receives some mixed reviews and plenty of people kept comparing it to Game of Thrones, season one wrapped up quite nicely and season two is already in […]

An arcade style sports game with full 3D graphics, physics and easy pick-up and-play game mechanics, House of Golf sees players face fun and challenging holes across a variety of home based locations. Sounds simple […]

‘Simulacra’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Whilst we’ve reviewed a number of Wales Interactive’s FMV releases, this is actually the first time I’ve played one of their games for myself. You see, I felt out of love with this particular sub-genre of video gaming some years ago and have only just got back into playing this style of game thanks to […]

‘Life Is Strange 2 – Episode 5: Wolves’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

We’ve reached the end of a very long road. Sean and Daniel’s journey is over in its entirety. Over this past year and three months of watching their story, it’s warmed and broke my heart so often. Their relationship has made everything very worthwhile. I’ve never seen a game that so accurately captures what it’s […]

‘Alien: Isolation’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

When Alien: Isolation was originally release, hot on the heels of the much-derided Alien: Colonial Marines, not much was expected of the game. However something happened… the hands-on previews and reviews came out and the game was getting positive feedback. In fact the game was so well received that now, some 5 years later, Sega and […]

‘The Surge 2′ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

Having never played the original The Surge and, upon reading into it, finding out that it was dismissed by some as a Dark Souls clone, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from this sequel. After spending several hours with The Surge 2 I was surprised to find that, whilst it does come from that […]

‘Castle Crashers Remastered’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Castle Crashers holds a special place in my heart, released pretty much a decade ago when local co-op was begging for rocks to eat whilst wearing nothing but a skirt fashioned out of crudely sewn-together crisp-packets and shoes make from cereal boxed wrapped in parcel tape, it was a dark time indeed for those of […]

‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 4: Faith’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

WARNING: The following review spoils the Life is Strange 2, Episode 3 ending. Let’s have a little recap on Episode 3: Wastelands ending. Daniel had a freak telekinetic outburst which injured multiple people. Once the dust had settled, the episode ended on a shot with Sean unconscious and bleeding. There was a glass shard embedded […]

‘A.O.T 2: Final Battle’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

Based on the Manga series of the same name, A.O.T 2 (Attack on Titan 2) is a revisiting and expansion of the world discovered in the first game that offers a lot to fans of the show but also completely grabbed me as a total newcomer with its surprisingly engaging story, addictive gameplay and, of […]

‘Streets of Rogue’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A few weeks ago I was having a conversation with a fellow local co-op loving friend, lamenting the lack of multiplayer games that have a more ‘progress-based’ bent as opposed to pure blasts of arcade action such as (the very good) Iron Crypticle and the like. As if in answer to our prayers, Streets of […]

‘Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-stered’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

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 and, following the 2018 release of the remaster on the PS4 and Xbox One, […]

‘Kamen Rider: Climax Scramble’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Honestly, one of the joys of owning the console is its lack of regional lockout, meaning you can get both digital and physical releases from around the world onto your Switch. Though in the case of digital games its a little trickier! That multiregion capability though means it’s easier than ever to play games based […]

‘Rampage Knights’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The Switch has seen a fair few multiplayer side-scrolling brawlers over the last couple of years, some of which were ported across from the PC and the light usage of procedural generation used in such games as Streets of Red add a frisson of variety to the proceedings which make playthroughs slightly different each time.

‘The Shrouded Isle’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A simulation game based on numbers that’s set in a Lovecraftian landscape, The Shrouded Isle is a well-designed title rich in ambience and with a desert-dry sense of wry humour but the mileage gained from it will depend on the players’ level of fascination with gauge-juggling. The game casts you in the role of the […]

‘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 […]
