Planet Alpha Review

Planet Beta? ‘Planet Alpha‘ is the latest 2D indie side-scrolling platformer, this time from the minds of some former IO developers (the Hitman team). Does this sci-fi adventure, made by a tiny team from Denmark, do enough to tickle my taste-buds? Story: Despite the small team, Team 17 have chosen this to be their 100th game, so were probably pretty confident in it? Planet Alpha is one...[Read More]

V-Rally 4 Review

V-Really good? V-Rally 99 for N64 was my first rally game nearly 20 years ago, although Sega Rally had been a huge arcade favourite of mine. From a home perspective though, it was the game that has seen me play countless off-road games over the years. It’s been a long time since a V-Rally game came out, but can Kyloton capture the arcade racing spirit of the originals? Story: The original couple o...[Read More]

Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 Review

They think it’s all UEFA, it is now…: ‘Pro Evolution Soccer‘ has always struggled to get the licenses of juggernaut FIFA. But losing the Champions League and UEFA cup is arguably a body blow that Konami will struggle to recover from. Is Pro Evo as good as ever or like the new fatigue feature, is it on its last legs? Story: Konami still won’t/ can’t/ don’t bother with a story mode. Inst...[Read More]

We Happy Few XB1 Review

Joy to the World? ‘We Happy Few‘ first got an audience many years ago, but after launching in Early Access as yet another survival game, it went into hibernation for nearly two years before emerging as more of a Bioshock style of game. Was the extra time worth the wait? Story: The extra time has basically gone into three expansive, narrative driven storyline adventures, where you play ...[Read More]

Amazing

F1 2018 Review

More Brawn? F1 2017 was a smart evolution on an already great game. Is it time for Codemasters to rest on their laurels and pump out livery and track updates only? Story: Codemasters have taken note of the visual changes to F1 that new owners Liberty Media have made (and rumour has it, the development team already have a much improved relationship with the company when compared to Bernie’s crew CV...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky XO Review

No Universe for Old Men? No Man’s Sky was feted for years before its release… and when it came out, many people were hugely disappointed. Two years on, with several massive patches including the new ‘NEXT’ update and an Xbox release, can Hello Games finally rest on their laurels and deliver upon their original vision? Story: The initial release pretty much eschewed a storyline entirely, and whilst...[Read More]

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Review

Toad – still a fungi? Captain Toad was one of the better uses of the dual-screen setup on the Wii U. As the latest game to be transferred to the Switch, are Nintendo running out of ideas or have they worked some magic to make this game work on a single screen? Story: Like many Nintendo games, the story of Captain Toad is mostly implied, with the rest being shown through some occasional, un-voiced,...[Read More]
