ONRUSH Review

Absolutely Smashing: I didn’t really know what to expect when Onrush arrived on my desk. Looking like a spiritual successor to the excellent Motorstorm series I excitedly dove in expecting a meaty arcade racing experience. But whilst it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, a duck this is not. I’d hesitate to even call it a ‘racing’ game – but whatever it is I can tell you one thing: it’s bloo...[Read More]

Dillon’s Dead Heat Breakers Review

Dillon: Dillon the Armadillo is one of Nintendo’s most underappreciated mascots. Prior to Dead Heat Breaker’s he had two fantastic tower defence games that passed a lot of gamers by, but now with a physical release of the third instalment in his action-slash-strategy series I’m hoping he becomes the big deal he deserves to be. There’s just nothing else out there like it right now. Story: Within mi...[Read More]

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux Review

Strange Journey Redux: The Shin Megami Tensei games have always been a bit niche, and more than a little weird. This dark, brooding and strangely styled series often presents a more mature take on a genre that is usually joyful and upbeat. Strange Journey, originally released on the DS system, was similarly moody and difficult, and now nearly ten years later it’s got a 3DS remake. As one of the be...[Read More]

Detroit: Become Human Review

Become Human: The David Cage line of games – that is, Indigo Prophecy, Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls and now Detroit: Become Human – are titles that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the gaming world. In the nearly fifteen years since their inception these games have all given me incredibly personal experiences and each has left a lasting impression. Sure, I’ve been frustrated at their many shortcom...[Read More]

Hitman: Definitive Edition Review

Forty-Seven Forever: After the Hitman Game of the Year edition I didn’t expect another release of what is probably the best Hitman game ever made. 2016’s Hitman made a strong case as to why assassinating people stealthily is not as dead a genre as the corpses you leave stashed away throughout your adventures as the suited-and-booted assassin Agent 47. It was an evolution of the artform, in fact, a...[Read More]

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Review

Hyrule: ‘Hyrule Warriors‘ was a lot of things: chaotic, messy, fun, funny, packed with content and finally, well deserving of a wider audience. I’m glad that Nintendo have given this game yet another chance to become the big hit it deserves to be. Even playing through it for the third time, I can’t help but fall for its earnest charm – a charm that proves the developers at Team Ninja a...[Read More]

Dragon’s Crown Pro Review

Dragon’s Crown Pro: If you’ve never played Dragon’s Crown and you love sidecrolling brawlers such as Streets of Rage, you can quit reading now. Go grab Dragon’s Crown Pro and have yourself one hell of a time – the genre doesn’t get better than this. If you’re a veteran returning for some extra DC goodness, hold your horses and read on to see if Pro is worth the double dip. Gameplay: Dragon’s...[Read More]

God Of War Review

God Of War: The God of War series holds a special place in my heart. Kratos’ first outing was also my first game on the Playstation 2, and one of my first forays into the hack and slash genre after the 3D boom revolutionised it. As such I went into the latest God of War, reborn on the PS4 and rebooted into the Norse mythology (Kratos kind of killed everyone worth mentioning in the Greek pantheon, ...[Read More]

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review

The Leader of the Bunch: Donkey Kong Country Returns was a game I never thought could recapture the DK magic from the golden era of platformers. I was wrong. I didn’t make the same mistakes doubting Tropical Freeze when it debuted on the much maligned Wii U a few years back – I knew we were in for something special. I am thrilled to report that the inevitable Switch port is even more fantastic. St...[Read More]

Detective Pikachu Review

Elementary my dear Goodman: After seemingly hundreds of games starring the little electric mouse we’ve all grown to love, he finally has a voice. Pikachu, the surprising star sleuth of Detective Pikachu, is a different beast to the excitable, high-pitched incarnations we’ve seen before. Here he’s a sarcastic, world-weary detective and somehow – against all the odds – it just works. Story: Tim Good...[Read More]

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life Review

Yakuza: Long-time fans of the Yakuza series are likely a little floored with the sudden new rush of releases in the West. After all, it wasn’t so long ago that each new entry into the series would bring with it a three or four year wait to see if it would even come West. With the release of Yakuza 6, and the recent announcement of Kiwami 2 for August of this year, we’ll have seen four mainline gam...[Read More]

Kirby Star Allies Review

Kirby: “Kirby Star Allies” is a very typical Nintendo game – cute, fun and polished to the nth degree. It doesn’t do anything new but, then again, it really doesn’t need to. The Kirby formula of sucking things up and stealing their powers is as fun here as it’s ever been, and whilst it never reaches the highs of Return to Dreamland, it’s still a stellar instalment in an absolutely char...[Read More]
