SteamWorld Quest Review

SteamWorld: The SteamWorld games are some of my favourite indie titles of all time. SteamWorld Dig tapped into something primal and just got to the heart of addictive gameplay loops, whilst SteamWorld Heist – a side-on strategy game – mixed things up in such a stark way that it proved Image & Form weren’t simply one-hit-wonders. Their unique visual flair and knack for trimming the fat in...[Read More]

Castlevania Anniversary Collection Review

Castlevania: For a lot of people, Castlevania’s star didn’t truly shine until Koji Igarashi got his hands on the series with Symphony of the Night – but for a lot of us, that was a wild, unnatural evolution to a series we had grown up playing, cross-legged in front of our old CRTs with a NES controller clutched in our sweaty palms. With Konami’s Anniversary Collection, the best of those pre-Iga ‘V...[Read More]

Zanki Zero: Last Beginning Review

Zanki Zero: Zanki Zero, a new adventure from the guys who brought us the excellent Danganronpa series, immediately had my attention. Despite its weird name, its convoluted stack of gameplay mechanics and its questionable pacing at times, Zanki Zero had me hooked from the beginning to its curious end. Story: Having decided that he’s had enough of life, a young man throws himself off a ledge to his ...[Read More]

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster Review

Distant Memories: Back in 2001, Square Enix were still pumping out classic after venerable classic. Every game with the Final Fantasy name attached to it did staggeringly well, and Final Fantasy X – and its sequel, X-2 – were no different. Whilst Square Enix have made some missteps in the intervening decade and a half, re-releasing both games with spruced up visuals and additional feat...[Read More]

Dead Or Alive 6 Review

DOA: Dead or Alive has always struggled to be taken seriously. This is thanks, in no small part, to titles that have prioritized the zero-g nature of their breast physics over pretty much any other feature. The thing is, Dead or Alive has always boasted an absolutely stellar 3D fighting experience, so when the series’ sixth instalment said it was toning down the sexy to focus on what the series ha...[Read More]

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Review

Shadows Die Twice: As a stalwart fan of the Soulsborne series, I was at once excited and a little nervous for Sekiro. It’s FromSoft’s first real return to development since that comfortingly familiar franchise, and it’s rightfully been sold as quite a departure from the sword-and-board hack and slash of its predecessor. I’m thrilled to say that Sekiro is a confident step away from the series that ...[Read More]

Far Cry New Dawn Review

New Dawn: I found FarCry 5 a lot of fun – safe evolution though it was. It was a gorgeous open world with nice quality of life improvements over its predecessors – but I found its promising story to be a bit toothless. New Dawn is a direct sequel to the apocalyptic events of that game, and whilst it doesn’t fall into the dull, dreary ditches a lot of this genre so often gets caught up in, it...[Read More]

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove Review

ToeJam & Earl: Growing up with a Mega Drive, ToeJam and Earl and its sequel Panic of Funkotron were some of my favourite games. They were weird, colourful, and felt genuinely fresh. They just weren’t quite like other games at the time, full of secrets, seemingly endless replayability, and great co-op. So when ‘Back in the Groove’ was announced, I was very happy to see all of those features shi...[Read More]

Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn Review

Kirby Doesn’t Suck: Kirby’s Epic Yarn was a beautiful, innovative game that completely passed me by when it came out on the Wii in 2011, so when I got the chance to play a spruced up version on one of my favourite consoles, I jumped at it. Nintendo have been doling out re-releases, remasters and remakes aplenty on both the Switch and the 3DS, and whilst not all our made equal, Extra Epic Yarn is o...[Read More]

Final Fantasy IX Review

Final Fantasy IX: The PS1 Final Fantasy games have always said a lot about you as a gamer. When asked whether you preferred 7, 8 or 9 – or even 6, for you purists out there – the answer was always a telling one. When I told friends that FFVIII was my favourite, I was generally derided as an idiot looking for attention. VII was the expected answer – but Final Fantasy IX was the one answer that said...[Read More]

Anthem Review

Intro: Anthem looked like it might have had what it took to dethrone Destiny as the leading console MMORPG. Bioware – who, with a traditional focus on single player RPGS, are one of the more unlikely developers to take a crack at the crown – have turned in an effort that doesn’t always know what it wants to be, and suffers as a result. Story: We’re thrown into Anthem at the darkest moment of a cam...[Read More]

Kingdom Hearts 3 Review

Kingdom Hearts: Square Enix is no stranger to extended development cycles – and as such they’re well aware of how difficult it is to meet the hype that such projects garner. Kingdom Hearts 3, a game that has taken far too long to come out, could never meet the wild fervour surrounding it, but to its credit it does a damn fine job trying to live up to those impossible expectations. Story: Kingdom H...[Read More]
