TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge Review

Time to Man up? Kylotonn have done a more than serviceable job with the WRC license the last couple of years, so how will they fare on two wheels and the daunting task of the 37- mile Isle of Man Tourist Trophy circuit? Story: The Isle of Man TT is a bit of a unique race in motorcycling, and so Kylotonn have struggled to build much of a career around it. There are stage races, and full races on so...[Read More]



Gravel Review

Off road and off target? Milestone are more normally known for their hardcore simulations, so what happens when they try to inject a bit of arcade fun into their games? Story: The career modes in those games are normally quite drab and staid, but if nothing else, Milestone have tried to inject a bit of fun into this game, calling the campaign the ‘off-road masters’ series, where you have to beat a...[Read More]



Kingdom Come: Deliverance Review

Deliver us from debate… “Kingdom Come: Deliverance” is undergoing a bit of scrutiny thanks to the seemingly unpleasant politics and tastes of the game’s director. Politics aside, is the actual game any good? Story: Kingdom Come, unlike the vast majority of other RPGs that you may try and compare against, is not set in a fantasy world, but early 15th Century Bohemia, during a real-life ...[Read More]



Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame Review

Makes you super cross? Bike racing isn’t on my personal sports radar all that much (I prefer 4 wheels, thanks for asking), but I guess it must be popular, with Ride 2, Moto GP, MXGP, Superbike and various Road-rash style games all being released in the last 12 months. Can “Monster Energy Supercross” make a splash in a crowded genre? Story: Fans expecting anything other than one of Mile...[Read More]



UFC 3 Review

The GOAT or just a bit sheepish? It seems a long time ago since Dana White, UFC president, proclaimed he’d never work with EA. Like the THQ games of old though, the EA offering have looked superb whilst never offering gameplay to match. Is this the game to break with tradition? Story: Like FIFA and Madden, there’s a career mode to UFC 3, although it’s not got quite the same level of detail to it a...[Read More]

Sea Of Thieves Closed BETA Preview

Sea of Thieves closed beta impressions Rare is a developer I have a lot of history with. As a mid-thirties gamer, I grew up with their late SNES and N64 output, which are fondly remembered as some of the best games of all time. Whilst Rare Replay may have helped introduce the developer to a new audience, for many, they will be a bit of an unknown force.Thankfully, Sea of Thieves seems to have the ...[Read More]




Problems Unknown? PUBG is a phenomenon. If you don’t know what this previously PC-only battle-royale game is by now, you must have spent 2017 under a rock, given it has sold over 17 million copies. But can this complex PC shooter ever work well on a console? Gameplay: PUBG is a pretty complex game, combining 3rd and 1st person elements with scavenging, inventory management, exploration, driving an...[Read More]



Need For Speed Payback Review

Fast & Spurious? Need for Speed is back after two years, and Ghost Games gave NFS a really good showing at E3, with trailers promising a Fast & Furious style plot and explosive action. Does the end product deliver? Story: Unfortunately, Payback’s story starts weakly, and never manages to recover. At the end of the day, it all boils down to a simple revenge storyline against a shadowy organ...[Read More]



L.A. Noire Review

Noire’t enough done? 6 years after the original release, and with Team Bondi long gone, Rockstar have decided to give L.A. Noire the HD remake treatment. Is this crime thriller worth going back to? Story: The remaster includes all of the DLC which was released for the game, which helps expand upon the scope of the original game, without altering the main storyline very much, as you follow the care...[Read More]



Outcast – Second Contact Review

Outstayed it’s welcome? Outcast is a game I vaguely remembered, despite never having a very capable PC at the time. Maybe it was the interesting looking worlds, the box art or the orange-shirted protagonist, Cutter. But I also remember it was largely forgotten about, even in 1999. Does it deserve a remaster 18 years later? Story: Outcast offered unbelievable freedom for 1999, and some critics have...[Read More]



Road Rage Review

Roadkill? A Road Rash reboot has long been called for by fans of the series, but with games like Road Redemption & Road Rage, is there any need to dust off the franchise? Story: Road Rage is set in the near (dystopian) future, when the government has locked down areas of the cities and violent biker gangs roam the streets… It’s not an inspired storyline, although it is delivered with enough ch...[Read More]



Super Lucky’s Tale Review

Lucky to come out the week after Mario? The original Lucky’s Tale was well received, but by measure of being an Oculus Rift exclusive, wasn’t exactly played by too many people. Will it do better as the sole Xbox One X launch title? Story: Platformers rarely have fantastic plots, and Super Lucky’s Tale falls into about every genre cliché you could image. Lucky’s girlfriend’s been taken by the big b...[Read More]
