Prey review

Prey successfully melds science fiction and horror in a more contemporary and grounded setting that the original title from 2006. It therefore doesn’t feel at all related to its predecessor, posing question as to why it needed to use the name ‘Prey’. However, while its roots are muddy, the title that’s grown from them is wonderfully intense and intriguing, providing an experience that’s a bit fami...

Human: Fall Flat review

Protagonist Bob in Human: Fall Flat is akin to a toddler learning to walk.

Cities Skylines review

There’s phenomenal complexity to Cities Skylines. From building residential, commercial, industrial and office zones, connecting them all up with power, water and sewage, then linking them via road and ensuring they’re catered for by police departments, fire departments, hospitals and schools. Of course, on top of all of that you need consider future expansion, traffic management, pollution from p...
