‘Observation’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

I was a latecomer to Stories Untold, a friend recommended it to me less than a year ago and I loved its mood, tone, idiosyncrasies and the ingenious insertion of mini-games and puzzles as a way of moving the narrative forwards. When I got sent the review code for Observation and watched the trailer, it […]

‘American Fugitive’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

We are a bit starved for more ‘realistic’ open world games on the Switch and American Fugitive, with its isometric sandbox action, fits the bill perfectly, however a few technical snags affect what could have been a GOTY contender for me. In American Fugitive you play Will, wrongly accused of murdering his father (and in […]

‘RemiLore’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

An all-new hack-and-slash action game, RemiLore follows the journey of an ordinary schoolgirl named Remi and a supreme magic book named Lore as they battle their way through the anime-inspired world of Ragnoah. Essentially RemiLore is a “rogue-lite” anime-style adventure set in a colorful world where players can defeat enemies with a variety of powerful melee […]

‘Guilty Gear 20th Anniversary Pack’ Review (Switch)

by Phil Wheat

It won’t comes as a surprise given how many of them I review, but I am a HUGE fan of fighting games – in particular the 2D fighters of old – having played just about EVERY 2D fighting game ever released on any system, from side-scrolling days of the NES, to the classic SNES/Streetfighter 2 […]

‘Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Now I’ve never been the biggest fan of the Saints Row franchise – for one they’re sandbox games, and we all know (or at least you should by now) know that I have a particular dislike for sandbox games, and two they always seemed to me to be a poor man’s Grand Theft Auto. So […]

‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 3: Wastelands’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

It’s been over three months since the last Life is Strange 2 episode. The long wait times between episodes is guaranteed to test the patience of many gamers. The reasoning for these long breaks is to make each episode the best it possibly can be when it’s released. Episode 2 was fine but it’s debatable […]

‘Venture Kid’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Billed as a a lovingly crafted 8-bit retro action platformer that goes beyond just pixels and chiptunes, Venture Kid is a throwback to the golden age of cartridge games; a tribute, a love letter if you will, to the platforming genre and the NES-era of platforming in particular. Having debuted on mobile some years ago, Venture […]

‘Truberbrook’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The visuals are the high-point in this traditional graphic adventure. A haphazard narrative and plain puzzles affect the ability to really recommend this as a must-play title for adventure enthusiasts and feels too meandering to recommend as a starting point to newcomers of the genre. Set in 1967, you take control of the protagonist Hans […]

‘Table Top Racing: World Tour – Nitro Edition’ Review (Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Remember the heyday of Micro Machines? Those tiny little diecast cars that kids, at least of my generation, went crazy for… Well if you’re old enough to remember the toys, then you’re surely old enough to remember the video games!

‘Cuphead’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Surely, by now, I don’t have to tell you anything about the game but here it goes: Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era: traditional hand drawn cel […]

‘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 […]

‘World War Z’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Based on the book and movie of the same name, World War Z is a modern-gen zombie shooter that reminded me very much of the fantastic Left 4 Dead franchise – in the best way possible of course! Insomuch as this is easily the most fun I’ve had with a AAA title in years… Let […]

Playing as a cross between the best parts of Lost Planet 2 (albeit in a 2D version), Shadow of the Colossus and Cuphead, Mechstermination Force is an action/platform ‘Boss Rush’ title with tongue firmly in cheek.
