‘The Quarry’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

For horror fans there is something fun about being in control of the victims of a horror game. Supermassive Games proved this well with Until Dawn. Now it’s time to collect another group of teens and stick them in a summer camp ready to be the victims. The question is will The Quarry be as […]

‘Evil Dead: The Game’ Review (Xbox Series X/S)

by Paul Metcalf

When Evil Dead: The Game was first revealed, the marketing was perfect. Put Bruce Campbell in the trailers, show characters from not only the movies but the TV show and you have fan’s attention from the start. The question is does the game live up to the hype created around it? The answer to this […]

‘Quest For Infamy’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Alain Elliott

Broken Sword, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Syberia, Clock Tower. All classic games. All classic point and click adventure video games. But I haven’t played any of them and I’ve been playing video games for a very long time. I’m trying to think as I write this but it’s been at least thirty years. And in […]

‘Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires’ Review (Xbox Series S)

by Phil Wheat

Yes, the musou classic is back with another entry in the long-running series that has also had numerous spin-offs and titles that use the same “warriors” format for their own gameplay needs (Hyrule Warriors for example). And in terms of the musou action nothing much has changed, however… Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires lets gamers live […]

‘Moto Roader MC’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Alain Elliott

I have always been fond of top-down racing video games and I’m not entirely sure why because I haven’t actually played a whole lot of them. I think my first memory of this type of racer probably came from seeing Super Off Road in gaming magazines in the nineties. There was something about that style […]

‘Let’s Sing 2022’ Review (Xbox Series X/S)

by Phil Wheat

Now in it’s 2022 iteration, the RavensCourt/Voxler Let’s Sing franchise is now seemingly the only karaoke game left in a market that used to be completely saturated… I still struggle to understand why these types of games fell out of favour, especially in the TikTok era! You’d think that TikTok’ers would love to sing along […]

‘Icarus’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If you know your Greek mythology Icarus flew too close to the sun and died. Now a new game with the same name has been released, and is more than likely to become the next big game for survival fans. The question has to be though right now is it flying up to the sun […]

‘Xuan Yuan Sword 7’ Review (Xbox Series X/S)

by Phil Wheat

There are a lot of metrics by which to measure the quality of video games – graphics, sound, controls, game play… But there’s one, at least for me, that trumps all those. Namely how long I’ll plonk myself in front of the TV and play a game in one sitting… And after downloading Xuan Yuan […]

‘Lawn Mowing Simulator & Ancient Britain DLC’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one type of game that seems to be growing in popularity at the moment it has to be simulators. We’ve got House Flipper, we’ve got the latest Farming Simulator, Cooking Simulator, and so many more. One of the ones you would probably not feel would be the most fun is Lawn Mowing […]

‘Far Cry 6’ Review

by Chris Cummings

I’ve been a Far Cry fan for a long time, with Far Cry 2 being my personal introduction to the series. The games got better and better, with the forth being my favourite to date, and Far Cry 6 certainly follows in the footsteps of those games, taking a step back into reality and away […]

‘Life is Strange: True Colours’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

I’m a fan of the Life is Strange franchise and have been since the very first episode of the first game was released back in January of 2015. The first game, the Before the Storm mini-game and Life is Strange 2 were all, in my view, fantastic games with wonderful stories and well-drawn characters. When […]

Anyone out there remember 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! Spanning multiple consoles, including the Sega Megadrive, Commodore Amiga and the Nintendo NES – the […]

Even though Phoenix Point has been out on PC for a couple of years now (more or less, anyway) it has only just landed on consoles. Thankfully, it appears on both PS4 and Xbox One (with next gen upgrades apparently due in the future) in the form of the Phoenix Point: Behemoth Edition. This version […]

Switch Review Round-Up: Spelunker HD Deluxe / Cotton Reboot

SPELUNKER HD DELUXE Good god I forgot how much I hate Spelunker! Originally released waaaay back in 1983, Spelunker is – to this day – a hard as nails platformer that sees you play as the titular spelunker, traversing caves… Walking, running, climbing and jumping around. Oh and dying, a LOT. Yes, the evil that […]

Retro-Spective: ‘Wonderboy: Asha in Monster World’ & ‘Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

Video game nostalgia seems to be at an all-time high right now; either that or video game studios have just run out of ideas. Whatever the reason, we’re currently in the midst of a wave of old-school early video games getting reboots, remakes or reduxes. Case in point, the recently-released high def remakes of Wonderboy: […]
