Grand Prix Rock ‘N Racing review

I remember spending many weekend’s in arcades, popping 10p’s into quick and easy racing games. Wandering around the, then, smoke-filled rooms dazzled by the sounds and lights of promised adventures. When loading up Grand Prix Rock ‘N Racing for the first time, I experienced the familiar nostalgic pang many of these old arcade racers would bring. But, does Grand Prix Rock ‘N...

Thrustmaster Y-350X 7.1 Doom Edition headset review

In order to hear the full effect of the gloriously gory sounds of punching, dismembering and shooting the copious amounts of demons in Doom, a headset is recommended, and seems Thrustmasters agrees with that sentiment and have produced the Y-350X 7.1 Doom Edition headset. And with its highly competitive price point of £129.99, can this headset provide the quality we desire in a more wallet friendl...

Neon Chrome review

Here I am now almost half way through 2016 and my quest to play as many games as possible continues. I have a new furry cover for my gaming chair, because I’m a classy guy, and I’m settled in for a session with Neon Chrome, the new title from 10tons studio (who made Crimsonland).  Neon Chrome is a cyberpunk top down shooter. The two comparisons that instantly spring to mind are Spartan Assault and...

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride review

Many stories from folklore start with a spurned lover, and Artifex Mundi dont break from convention when they crafted their dark, medievel puzzle adventure game, Grim Legends : The Forsaken Bride. Your story begins returning to your home village, after many years absence, in order to attend the wedding of your twin sister. Events begin to take a distinctly fairy tale turn when a bear frightens you...

Fragments of Him review

I often wonder what processes developers go through when writing games. Not in the graphical or gameplay representations, but in the story-based games that have been hitting the consoles of late. Games such as Life is Strange and to some extent the latest Tomb Raider series have leant heavily on a story mechanic to pull the game together successfully. Fragments of Him by Sassybot is narrative-driv...

Soul Axiom review

I first saw Soul Axiom two years ago at EGX in London and the game really caught the attention of not only myself, but many of the crowd there and I was excited to hear of its formal release and couldn’t wait to get stuck in. However what I discovered was a real mix of exciting creative gameplay and frustrating niggles. Set in the cyberspace world of Elysia, Soul Axiom developed by Wales Int...

Dead Island Definitive Collection review

Punching, kicking, striking and stabbing zombies on an island paradise is an attractive concept, and even with Techland refining this experience for Dying Light, their original outing with Dead Island still holds some appeal. However, it’s still a victim of bugs and other issues, making it less enticing than it could be. The island itself is the most appealing part of Dead Island, and it looks gre...
