‘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 […]

Asmodee Digital have today announced that they will publish a brand-new adventure game based on Fantasy Flight Games’ Mansions of Madness, an award-winning board game celebrated for its high production values (which we reviewed the 2nd edition of right here), Lovecraft-inspired art, and unique fusion of physical and digital gameplay mechanics.

‘The Bunker’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

After spotting Jeff Minter in Port Talbot last week, I’ve thinking about the Welsh video game industry as I can’t recall the last time that I played a game set in Wales or made by a Welsh Developer, so it was quite coincidental that this week I was sent The Bunker to review, a game […]

‘D/Generation’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The original D/Generation was one of my favourite Amiga games. The combination of a sci-fi puzzle game with such a unique take on the isometric genre moved along by such a minimalist story told in fragmented fashion really appealed to me and I worked my way through the game several times back on my trusty […]

‘The Council: Episode 1 – The Mad Ones’ Review (Xbox One X)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m a fan of the many Telltale Games, and Life is Strange, but sometimes it feels like the choices made don’t really have enough of an effect. While this does not really ruin the story, it does lessen the danger of messing up your game. The Council: Episode 1 – The Mad Ones introduces us […]

Digital Shorts: ‘Plantera DX’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

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 Plantera DX, a Switch port of a former 3DS and Wii U game from Ratalaika Games. Plantera DX is not the kind […]

‘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 […]

‘Ninja Shodown’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

Not to be confused with the legendarily terrible Flash game Ninja Showdown, Ninja Shodown is an appealing, super-fast-paced hack ‘n’ slash party game from UK-based developer Bitmap Bureau. The controls are simple: jump, sword-swipe, shuriken and special. The shoulder buttons also give you access to a virtually useless block move, as well as an amusingly […]

‘Project Cars 2′ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Whilst I’m not intentionally going directly to the end of this review (without passing Go! or collecting two hundred pounds) I feel like I simply must start by saying something that I would usually reserve for my conclusion. That something is the exclamation that Project Cars 2 is an exceptional game that has the better […]

‘Distrust’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you’ve seen John Carpenter’s The Thing you’ll know that feeling of claustrophobic isolation that the film created so well. When looking for a fun game, this probably isn’t the experience you are looking for. Distrust looks to give just that, but thankfully doesn’t give up on the fun. When starting the game, you have […]

‘WRC 7′ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

Without putting too fine a point on it, WRC 7 is a hard game to recommend. I’m a huge fan of rally racing and rally games, yet the gameplay in Kyloton’s third installment of the WRC series (the others being WRC 5 and 6) feels as if it has barely advanced in three years. Considering […]
