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]

SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal Review

Burst Re:Newal: Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal may well be one of the last Senran games of the series current form. Thanks to Sony’s stricter set of guidelines going forwards concerning titillating titles such as Senran Kagura, the art of the impossibly-bouncing-busts of underage ninja may well have a new vision when Senran 7EVEN releases. Which makes Burst Re:Newal – a remake of the very first Senr...[Read More]

Hitman HD Enhanced Collection Review

Hitman: I love Hitman games – I mean really, what’s not to love? An emergent approach to stealth and murder that encourages perceptive strategizing and repeat playthroughs. The best of these games have offered us sandbox stages to murder our way through in dark, silly and hilarious ways. The weakest have offered linear levels that still achieved an excellence the genre isn’t used to. Curiously, th...[Read More]

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe Review

Deluxe: The Wii U had some of the best entries into any given Nintendo series – so much so that it was an absolute crime it didn’t sell better than it did. Nintendo, to their credit, have been showing everyone what they were missing out on, re-releasing some of the best Wii U games (and consequently, some of the best Nintendo games) on their much more popular Switch console. New Super Mario Bros. ...[Read More]

Just Cause 4 Review

Rico Rodriguez: The Just Cause series has always embraced the ridiculous. Whether it was the advent of the wingsuit and parachute combo, the marriage of physics to endless explosions or the insanely fun grapple-hook mechanics, the franchise has continued to iterate upon its love for the absurd time after time. With Rico Rodriguez’s fourth outing promising far more volatile situations and an even b...[Read More]

ARK Park VR Review

Ark Park VR: I was a dinosaur kid – you know, those children who are obsessed with T-Rex toys and only wear shirts if they have a Stegosaurus on them. Jurassic Park was my favourite movie growing up. Heck, it’s still up there today. So I was thrilled to get to play the retail disc of Ark Park VR – a virtual reality game that throws you into an island theme park full of dinosaurs. But whilst I expe...[Read More]

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! Review

What’s Old is New: Pokémon Go has been my most played videogame of 2018, which is saying a lot considering it’s a mobile game. It’s not a device I ever get much use out of when it comes to gaming, but countless days and nights this year have been spent out and about catching, trading and evolving virtual critters. All of which is to say, when Nintendo announced this year’s Pokémon game would be a ...[Read More]
