‘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, […]

First Impressions – ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I’m pretty new to the Animal Crossing universe, having only played a little itty bit of New Leaf on the Nintendo 3DS prior to the new release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Switch. Still… I’ve been very excited for this release, and I picked up a copy the day it came out and […]

‘Jump, Step, Step’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

From developer Phung Games and games publisher Hidden Trap comes Jump, Step, Step, a new puzzle title for the Nintendo Switch. This game, selling at a slender £4.49, could be a little something different for puzzle nerds who might be interested in an old-school isometric brain-twister, but sadly Jump, Step, Step fails to take its intriguing […]

‘Sisters Royale: Five Sisters Under Fire’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

I am rubbish at “bullet hell” shooters. There are two main reasons for this, the first is, despite playing video games for over 30 years, I am not very good at video games. This has been masked somewhat by the fact that modern games are far easier than the games of my childhood. The second […]

‘Skellboy’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I didn’t know anything about Umaiki Games’ Skellboy when I had a chance to play it recently. A super colourful throwback action-RPG with beautifully whimsical and charming pixelated visuals, it plays smoothly and has a whole bunch weird and wonderful things going for it. So, let’s talk about it a bit. You rise from the […]

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 […]

‘Jets ‘n’ Guns’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Could a title be more simpler than Jets ‘n’ Guns? I mean, to quote that famous advert, it does exactly what it says on the tin. This is a game about flying a jet and shooting its guns at the enemies. Only Jets ‘n’ Guns is actually a little more nuanced than that. Yes, the basic […]

‘Where Angels Cry: Tears of the Fallen’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

Developed by Cateia Games and published by Ocean Media, Where Angels Cry: Tears of the Fallen is an Artifex Mundi-like puzzle game with adventure elements and point and click gameplay. I’m a fan of these types of games, and this is a top quality addition to the genre, a genre that has spawned dozens of […]

‘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 […]

‘Let’s Sing 2020′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

The karaoke game train rolls on with the only video game franchise in the ever-diminishing genre, Let’s Sing, still around! Now in it’s 2020 iteration, the RavensCourt/Voxler title is now seemingly the only karaoke game left in a market that used to be completely saturated. So maligned is the genre that Sony recently announced it’s […]

‘Into the Breach’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

Into the Breach is a challenging, turn based tactical game featuring charming pixel based, “retro” graphics and a “retro” style sound track. The plot is simple – giant aliens invade the planet, humans of the future try to fight back with giant mechs. The game is structured into runs, where a player selects their 3 […]

‘Chaos on Deponia’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

I am a 30 something (pushing 40 something) who owned an Amiga and wasn’t allowed to own a games console back when the Amiga was a thing. The Amiga was a brilliant machine, with terrible anti-piracy protection, but to be fair the state of the games on those floppy disks was so poor you genuinely […]

‘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 […]
