‘Utawarerumono: Zan’ Review (PS4)

THe first game to make it to the West was Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, which was swiftly followed by Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth in the latter half of 2017. Skip forward to 2019 […]

‘Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Complete Edition’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

I remember all the way back in 2008 playing the original No More Heroes on the Nintendo Wii. It was a fresh, original, quirky and vibrant action video game that was really funny, very weird and a whole ton of fun. I hadn’t revisited the game since, or anything in the No More Heroes world, […]

‘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 […]

‘The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

I’ve been a fan of the Telltale The Walking Dead series right from the very beginning. In fact, I was a big Telltale fan. I loved many of their titles, from The Wolf Among Us to Borderlands to their Game of Thrones title, but The Walking Dead was their best work, bringing a brand new […]

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 […]

‘The Sinking City’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

Lovecraftian video games based on the mythology of Cthulhu aren’t anything new, with the concept finding it’s way into our video games market with the likes of Call of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Saves the World, among many others, some very well received, others not so much. It’s at the same time intriguing, especially if you’re […]

‘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 […]

‘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 […]

‘The Messenger’ Review (PS4)

by Rupert Harvey

The debut game from Sabotage Studios, which was founded in 2016, is a decent enough hardcore platformer. It has great heart and a handful of neat ideas, but a myriad of niggles – not to mention a catastrophic late-game shift in gameplay – hold it back from sharing the pixel art pantheon with the likes […]
