‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 1: Roads’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

If I had to sum up my experiences with the previous Life is Strange installments. I would say that I liked it but I didn’t love it. I went into the second main entry with the same expectations and by the end of Roads, I ended up thinking that this was the experience the internet […]

‘The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

With the new episode of Life is Strange 2 ‘Rules’ getting closer to its release, it makes sense to review the prequel to it: The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. This DLC came out long before we knew anything about Life is Strange 2 so playing it again after playing through the first episode of LiS2 […]

‘Spyro: Reignited Trilogy’ Review (PS4)

by Kat Wheat

Christmas day 1998… I was one lucky girl who got a PlayStation along with Spyro the Dragon game and Crash Bandicoot, flash forward ten years and with the success of the remastered Crash Bandicoot trilogy, Activision wasted very little time in a remastered Spyro trilogy. Spyro has returned and his attitude is fiercer than before! […]

‘Punchline’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

Before we get to the meat of the review, I feel like I have to add that I have nothing against visual novels. I’ve watched visual novel animes. I have liked a few of them quite a lot but before Punchline, I had never played a proper visual novel game. Something tells me that this […]

‘Soul Calibur VI’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

Soul Calibur VI had a lot riding on its success. Soul Calibur 5 was blasted for its weak story and how it replaced popular characters with not so great successors (if you can call them that). There were some people ready to declare the series as dead after its long absence. The decision was made […]

‘Grip: Combat Racing’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

I vividly remember Rollcage on the PS1, back when I was in my teens I would often play it with my uncle and the way that the cars would flip, barrel-roll and bounce around, whilst always hurtling forwards sticks in my mind as a good memory. What also sticks in my mind was a couple […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

My experience with Assassin’s Creed is pretty limited. I’ve only played Syndicate in full but I have paid attention to reactions to the series. I’m aware that not every Assassin’s Creed game has been a hit but the same could be said for every series that runs for a long time. The question is: Is Assassin’s […]

‘Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

It’s fair to say that right now, in videogaming, retro is king. Old franchises have been resurrected and/or remastered; new games chosing to 8-bit look; “mini classic” consoles aplenty… and, of course, video game compilation releases by the bucketload. But we’ve had re-release after re-release of the likes of Atari games, Sega Megadrive games, Capcom […]

Surprise surprise, we’re back with ANOTHER review of a karaoke game!

‘SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy’ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

SNK have a long storied history of fighting games. From the arcades to the Neo-Geo, by way of just about every home console you could possibly imagine, it feels very much like there have always been SNK fighting games; and because of that their characters are as iconic as those found in the Street Fighter […]

‘Far Cry 5′ Review (PS4)

by Rupert Harvey

Hope County, Montana. The Seed family (imagine the Westboro Baptist Church with infinite funds and a thesaurus) have enthralled the region with a brand of ranting, right-wing propaganda, channeled through their fundamentalist Eden’s Gate Project. Promising the great Collapse is the Father, Joseph Seed. Beneath him are his deputies: two brothers and an adopted sister. […]
