Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] Review

Intro: When I saw French-Bread were developing the ludicrously titled Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late[st] (a game which I’ll be referring to as ‘Latest’ for the rest of the review, for the sake of my sanity) I was very excited. I knew the name from the Melty Blood series, one of my favourite 2D fighters of all time. Their clean, crisp pixel art and smart, deep fighters of the past were fantastic, so...[Read More]

Lost Sphear Review

Lost Sphear: Lost Sphear is a new game from Tokyo RPG Factory that can sometimes feel a little too similar to what’s come before, and whilst this adherence to the past occasionally hamstrings some of its fresher ideas it still delivers a fun title for RPG fans. Story: Lost Sphear is a story about a hero trying to restore life and memory to a world that has seemingly forgotten itself. Empty white v...[Read More]

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Review

Dissidia NT: When it comes to fan-service, Square Enix are masters of the craft. Final Fantasy sees more spin-off titles than mainline games in any given year, and this versatility has served the series well. Dissidia NT, the home-console big brother of the PSP titles that came before, is no different, with some excellent interdimensional interactions causing big stupid grins to cross the faces of...[Read More]

Mario Party: The Top 100 Review

Let’s Party: ‘Mario Party‘ became a very special property to a very select group of kids growing up. Anyone who still fondly remembers the holes they burnt into their palms playing Mario Party on the ’64 can count themselves as part of that exclusive club. I was pretty excited to see a compilation of Mario Party’s best minigames – especially when I got a code just before I headed home ...[Read More]

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review

I wanna-be-a-boo: “Xenoblade Chronicles 2” is one of the most Japanese games I’ve played in a very long time. To both the fans and detractors of such a product, that should be all you need to know about XC2 to know if it’s for you. Honestly I’d begun to think things had changed and evolved away from the hyper-anime tropes that popularized JRPGs in their PS2 heyday – and please, don’t a...[Read More]

Pokemon Ultra Sun Review

Ultra Sun: ‘Pokemon Sun & Moon‘ were a breath of fresh air to a series that had started to repeat itself. Set in a beautiful tropical paradise, it did away with age-old series bugbears and traditions to great effect. Ultra Sun & Moon are, strangely, one of those old traditions – the ‘ultimate’ iteration of a game we’ve played through before. It’s the same Alola we know but plum...[Read More]

The Sims 4 Review

Far From Sim-ple: ‘The Sims 4‘ has made the unexpected but welcome jump to consoles, allowing a whole new set of players to get to grips with this fascinating series. Unlike previous home console attempts, The Sims 4 looks to adapt the entire experience instead of a pared down version and comes away with something unique and admirable, if a little cumbersome at times. Story: The Sims 4...[Read More]

Star Wars: Battlefront II Review

Battlefront II: “Star Wars Battlefront II” has been at the centre of some serious controversy recently, but every article and review I see deriding the initial – swiftly reversed – decisions by EA tend to skim over or downplay the inherent fun of Battlefront II. It’s not a perfect game by any stretch, but the core gameplay is strong with this one. Story: Unlike its predeces...[Read More]

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Review

Marvel Super Heroes 2: I was thrilled to hear that Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 had dropped the less inspired Avengers adaptation and gone back to the streak of brilliance present in the first Lego Marvel game. That tile was a veritable smörgåsbord of hilarious and thorough fan service, and I was pleased to dive back into that rich world here. Story: Marvel Super Heroes 2 presents another original s...[Read More]

Hand Of Fate 2 Review

Deal Me In: A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to be tasked with reviewing the original Hand of Fate –a game I might have otherwise missed altogether. I called it a ‘fantastic and fresh game, heartbreakingly hampered by bugs’, and really hoped the curious little card-driven roleplaying game would get a sequel. When it was announced I whooped, much to the bemusement of those around me, but I’...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed Origins Review

The OG Assassin: For the longest time – seven years to be exact – Assassin’s Creed was an annual thing. Launching a mainline entry, sometimes two, every year will tax any series, but Assassin’s Creed continued to deliver classic after occasionally buggy classic despite it all – so I was especially eager to see what the team could do with two years and twice the development time. Assassin’s Creed O...[Read More]

Super Mario Odyssey Review

Hats Off: You don’t have to know a thing about videogames to know exactly who Mario is and what he’s famous for. Nintendo’s iconic icon is the star of gaming’s most storied series, and yet they never seem to let the plucky plumber sit still for a moment: whilst most developers might rest on their laurels with a formula as successful as Mario’s, the Kyoto giant strives to push the series in new dir...[Read More]
