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]

South Park: The Fractured but Whole Review

The Fractured but Whole: After a few questionable South Park games and numerous delays, no one really expected the Stick of Truth to be as good as it was, so it was a pleasant surprise when it came along and blew our expectations out of the water. Whilst its sequel, the Fractured But Whole, is less surprising in its success, it’s no less pleasant. If you love South Park you can stop reading now – ...[Read More]

Middle-earth: Shadow of War Review

Shadow of War: It’s floored me that the Nemesis system, the star of the original Shadow of Mordor, wasn’t ripped off endlessly when it debuted in 2014. Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is a welcome return to the orc-killing murderbox of Mordor, full of memorable, personal bad guys that made the original so special – only now it’s bigger, better, and rather intimidating in its scope. Story: The game sta...[Read More]

The Evil Within 2 Review

Evil-er Dead: The original Evil Within was a lovely – horrible, but lovely – little surprise; a brilliant throwback to a genre I sorely missed. It felt like the safe, predictable direction I’d always imagined survival horror moving towards before it bucked decades of tradition and became something different altogether with games like Amnesia and then, later, Five Nights at Freddy’s. It became Twit...[Read More]

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Bowser’s Minions Review

Mario & Luigi: Mario & Luigi is a real gem of a series. First started way back in 2003 on the Game Boy Advance, it’s a series that has been a personal favourite of mine for on-the-go RPG goodness. If you’ve somehow missed this game and its excellent sequels, you should rectify that mistake immediately – luckily Nintendo has you covered. Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions packages a remake o...[Read More]

Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns Review

Intro: “Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns” has finally reached European shores after a lengthy six month wait, but luckily it was all worth it. Trio of Towns pays respects to its roots whilst blossoming into something new and exciting. Story: Trio of Towns is a story about proving yourself – both to yourself and your overbearing father – as someone who’s cut out to become a farmer. The g...[Read More]

RUINER Review

Ruined? “Ruiner” doesn’t screw around. I died 17 times and got an E-Rank in the tutorial. In the goddamn tutorial. Luckily, that kind of butt-kicking sadomasochism sits just fine with me, and it cemented Ruiner as something I set out to conquer rather than set aside because of a steep learning curve. Your mileage may vary, but for the stubborn bastards out there Ruiner is going to scra...[Read More]

Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy Review

Layton Comes Home: We were first introduced to Katrielle Layton, daughter to the esteemed professor Hershel Layton, earlier this year exclusively on mobile devices. Japanese gamers had the option to play through her adventures on her rightful home – the 3DS – back when the game first launched, but we’ve had to wait a little while to do so. If you’ve been holding out for this homecoming, you’ll be ...[Read More]

Yo-Kai Watch 2: Psychic Spectres Review

Psychic Spectres: Yo-Kai Watch – Japan’s latest cultural phenomenon – deserves more attention than we are currently giving it. Early detractors passed it off as a Pokemon clone, and whilst similarities are certainly there – especially with this latest third iteration of the second game – it’s a series all of its own, with enough character, charm and unique gameplay to stand toe to toe with Nintend...[Read More]

Project CARS 2 Review

Project 2: I’m sitting down to write this review about five hours away from Forza 7’s launch, and I think if I were Microsoft I’d be a little nervous. Unfortunatley don’t expect a full review of Forza Motorsport 7 since Microsoft has decided not to give us a review code. However there’s still Project CARS 2! A week ago Project Cars 2 hit store shelves, and it’s breadth of content, fant...[Read More]
