Planet Alpha Review

Planet Beta? ‘Planet Alpha‘ is the latest 2D indie side-scrolling platformer, this time from the minds of some former IO developers (the Hitman team). Does this sci-fi adventure, made by a tiny team from Denmark, do enough to tickle my ta...[Read More]

V-Rally 4 Review

V-Really good? V-Rally 99 for N64 was my first rally game nearly 20 years ago, although Sega Rally had been a huge arcade favourite of mine. From a home perspective though, it was the game that has seen me play countless off-road games over the years...[Read More]

Shenmue I & II Review

An Aging Classic: When it was first released on the Sega Dreamcast nearly twenty years ago, Shenmue and its sequel were a revalation. The series are two of the most influential and important 3D games ever made, and at the time they blew people away. ...[Read More]

F1 2018 Review

More Brawn? F1 2017 was a smart evolution on an already great game. Is it time for Codemasters to rest on their laurels and pump out livery and track updates only? Story: Codemasters have taken note of the visual changes to F1 that new owners Liberty...[Read More]

WarioWare Gold Review

3DS

Wario: ‘WarioWare‘ has always been a stark, fresh experiment into just what constitutes a ‘videogame’, throwing endless micro-games at the player to be understood and bested in just a handful of seconds. To be able to distil the essence o...[Read More]

Go Vacation Review

Vacation: I remember when I first laid eyes on Go Vacation and mistook it for more Wii shovelware. I also remember seeing it subsequently sold out everywhere I went following its release. Go Vacation might have looked like a soulless waggle-filled ca...[Read More]
