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]

Spyro Reignited Trilogy Review

Spyro: Like most legends of early 3D gaming, Spyro had his name dragged through the mud after his initial outings. As soon as original developers Insomniac Games put the purple protagonist out to pasture to pursue other projects, a slew of mediocre sequels followed headed by teams who didn’t seem to understand Spyro’s charm. I’m glad to say that, with this wonderful remake of those original titles...[Read More]

Luigi’s Mansion Review

Luigi: “Luigi’s Mansion” was a surprising game on a system full of surprising games. The Gamecube was, in this reviewers eyes, a golden age for Nintendo’s finest franchise experimentation. A ghost-hunting adventure as gaming’s greatest second-banana? Sign me up. But even more surprising, however, is how much Nintendo have since supported this idea of Luigi as a spectral exterminator af...[Read More]

World Of Final Fantasy: Maxima DLC Review

Maxima: World of Final Fantasy was a huge surprise when it debuted in 2016. Despite having the unenviable task of rolling out a mere month before the behemoth that was Final Fantasy XV, it lived up to the series’ name and then some. It was, by all accounts, a wonderful celebration of everything the franchise had going for it up until that point, and it quickly became one of my favourite entries in...[Read More]

Lets Sing 2019 Review

Let’s Karaoke: I was surprised when booting up Let’s Sing 2019 on my PS4 – not just to find myself booting it up, mind you. No, I was surprised because it prompted me to plug in decade old hardware (the Singstar microphones of yore) – and even more surprised to realize I still had one kicking around my miscellaneous cables bin. You can play with a mobile phone instead, but this felt like a g...[Read More]

The Forest Review

The Forest: The Forest makes a strange first impression. Despite living in the shadowy realms of Steam’s early access for a long stretch of time, it’s launched in its finished version on consoles in a strange – but not unenjoyable – state. The title sees you trying to carve out a place for yourself on an increasingly treacherous island, but does the game end up being a home away from home or a hol...[Read More]
