Destiny 2 Review

The Best of Bungie: “Destiny 2” is many things; it’s a tighter, leaner, far more generous beast than its predecessor. It’s a developer firing on all cylinders, and then some. It’s a masterclass in how to ruthlessly trim the fat and focus on the fun. It’s the realization of a promise made three years ago. Hell, it might just be the best apology I’ve ever heard. But more important than a...[Read More]

Yakuza Kiwami Review

Yakuza: Only half a year has passed since we got the fantastic Yakuza 0, the West’s debut PS4 Yakuza game, which should have given you just enough time to polish off that mammoth title in time to play Kiwami, a remake of the original Yakuza game. Whether you’re a new fan thanks to 0 or a returning vet who played the original back in 2006, “Yakuza Kiwami” is well worth your time and mon...[Read More]

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Review

The Lost Legacy: Fans were upset when they heard that Uncharted 4, released last year, would be Drake’s last outing. The Lost Legacy – an arguably self-referential title – proves that the lineage lost with Drake’s departure doesn’t mean the end for Uncharted. Far from it – The Lost Legacy is a highlight in a series full of highlights, and stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the rest of the storied fr...[Read More]

Absolver Review

Absolver: Absolver is a truly mesmerising game in so many ways that it’s difficult to know where to start. It’s a title that seems simple until you realize it’s not – not at all – and it’s only when you begin to peel away layer after layer that the true beast within reveals itself to you. I spent my first couple of days plugging away at the game until, about nine or ten hours in, I hit a point whe...[Read More]

Agents of Mayhem Review

Mayhem: When I first saw Agents of Mayhem, I assumed it was Saints Row. Indeed, it’s by the same developers and set in the same universe. But it was more than that – the look of gameplay, the open-world design, even the colour scheme – especially the colour scheme, in fact – further cemented this nagging fear that Agents of Mayhem wasn’t anything but a sequel in disguise. Story: Over the course of...[Read More]

Nidhogg 2 Review

Intro: Nidhogg was a wonderful surprise when I first played it years ago. Its simplicity seemed like a revelation at the time – when the industry was demanding bigger, louder and more complicated, Nidhogg delivered one of the most fun multiplayer games I’ve ever played with a laser-focused premise, minimalist visual style and controls so simple literally anyone could play. It was also a game I nev...[Read More]

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA Review

Intro: The curiously titled Ys series is one that’s as storied as the other kings of the JRPG genre, with its first title dropping in 1987. It’s highly regarded in Japan, and though the games have almost always found their way to our shores the franchise hasn’t really found purchase within the West. Ask one of its dedicated fans and you’ll get a laundry list of reasons why that should change. Is Y...[Read More]

Cars 3: Driven to Win Review

Intro: “Cars 3 Driven to Win” is the latest in a long lineage of licensed video games – a genre with quite the patchy reputation. Luckily, Driven to Win avoids a lot of the bugbears that have given movie-based games their bad name, and succeeds in creating a fun and surprisingly feature-rich experience. Gameplay: Driven to Win wants to be Disney’s answer to Mario Kart, and that’s not a...[Read More]

Superhot PS4 Review

HOT: “SUPERHOT” felt like a revelation when it hit computers early 2016, and again when it launched its VR edition in the year’s dying months. It might be unfair to expect the console outing of the FPS – a genre which struggles with such leaps to consoles – to hold up. Story: SUPERHOT tells the story of… well, you. The narrative beats of SUPERHOT takes place outside of the stark white ...[Read More]

Miitopia Review

Intro: If, like me, you fell in love with Nintendo’s bizarre ‘Tomodachi Life’ back in 2014, you can stop reading now. Go grab Nintendo’s latest 3DS oddity, Miitopia, because you’re going to love this too. That comedic curveball pitched your Miis as stars of their very own apartment-block drama – the funny little avatars based off your friends expressing their weirdest inner thoughts and enjoying u...[Read More]

Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age Review

A New Age: When asked ‘what is the greatest Final Fantasy game ever made?’, people will hardly ever provide the right response. Ever since Square Enix started pumping out re-releases and remakes, I’ve had my fingers crossed for Final Fantasy XII to be given another crack at earning some well-deserved fan-favouritism. It is, objectively, and by every conceivable metric, the greatest Final Fantasy g...[Read More]

Hey! Pikmin Review

Intro: If Game of the Year awards had a category for ‘most fun game title to shout aloud’, my winner would be Hey! Pikmin. Aside from having a great name, Hey! Pikmin is also a fun little game that shows Nintendo is far from done with the king of the handhelds. Story: Hey! Pikmin tells another tale of our intrepid Captain Olimar landing on an alien planet somehow filled with the same strange garde...[Read More]
