‘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 […]

‘Castle Crashers Remastered’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Castle Crashers holds a special place in my heart, released pretty much a decade ago when local co-op was begging for rocks to eat whilst wearing nothing but a skirt fashioned out of crudely sewn-together crisp-packets and shoes make from cereal boxed wrapped in parcel tape, it was a dark time indeed for those of […]

‘A.O.T 2: Final Battle’ Review (PS4)

by Britt Roberts

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 […]

‘Streets of Rogue’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A few weeks ago I was having a conversation with a fellow local co-op loving friend, lamenting the lack of multiplayer games that have a more ‘progress-based’ bent as opposed to pure blasts of arcade action such as (the very good) Iron Crypticle and the like. As if in answer to our prayers, Streets of […]

‘Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-stered’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

It was hardly a vintage year, but 2009 did bring us a few classics: Minecraft, Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2, Red Faction Guerrilla… Wait, what? That’s right, THQ Nordic have just updated the third and best of the bonkers third-person shooter/smasher series and, following the 2018 release of the remaster on the PS4 and Xbox One, […]

‘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 […]

‘Rampage Knights’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The Switch has seen a fair few multiplayer side-scrolling brawlers over the last couple of years, some of which were ported across from the PC and the light usage of procedural generation used in such games as Streets of Red add a frisson of variety to the proceedings which make playthroughs slightly different each time.

‘The Shrouded Isle’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A simulation game based on numbers that’s set in a Lovecraftian landscape, The Shrouded Isle is a well-designed title rich in ambience and with a desert-dry sense of wry humour but the mileage gained from it will depend on the players’ level of fascination with gauge-juggling. The game casts you in the role of the […]

‘This War of Mine’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

War is something we see on television and in films, some of us even play it in games like Call of Duty, but we do so for entertainment.  We understand that there are wars out there and people get killed, but most of us are lucky and don’t have to face that. This War of Mine […]

‘Destruction’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

The last game I played by publisher COSEN was the quirky Taiwanese puzzler Behind the Screen, which was relatively basic in its execution but had enough character to keep my interest up for the duration of the play-through. Destruction however, definitely feels more at home on a mobile device than the Nintendo Switch as its […]

‘Let’s Sing 2019′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Surprise surprise, we’re back with ANOTHER review of a karaoke game! What’s more surprising is that it seems Let’s Sing 2019 is the only update to any of this generations karaoke game franchises this year. So no head-to-head review for this year unfortunately. But what that does mean is that Let’s Sing has the entire […]

‘Rage in Peace’ Review (PC/Steam)

by Britt Roberts

Rage in Peace takes a lot of inspiration from ‘trial and error’ platformers such as Super Meat Boy (which it directly references) and, of course…Rick Dangerous (I mention it because I can), but Rage in Peace focuses on a surprisingly in-depth narrative behind the grind and this elevates it somewhat above other types of game […]

‘Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

After helping to form PopCap Games in the early 21st century, Jason Kapalka went on to found Blue Wizard Digital, which found success a couple of years ago with the isometric/top-down horror puzzler, Slayaway Camp. The name was a riff on Robert Hiltzik’s 1983 cult slasher, but then the team landed a bona fide licence […]

‘Danger Mouse: The Danger Games’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

Danger Mouse: The Danger Games is a port of a (free) mobile game to the Nintendo Switch and the fact that, after paying for the game, the mobile games’ original paywall is still in effect feels like a poke in the eye and whilst some aspects of the game are fun, the repetitiveness and cynicism […]
