Constructor HD Review

Constructor was originally released on the PC way back in 1997, when this reviewer was in his early 20’s, drinking every weekend, chasing girls and chasing footballs. Most of that has all gone n...[Read More]

Butcher review

Butcher is essentially a fast based 2D side scrolling bullet hell shooter from Transhuman Design and published by Crunching Koalas. Originally released on the PC last October, Butcher is a very hard g...[Read More]

Flinthook review

Tribute Games’ Flinthook is one of those titles that seems to remind you of a thousand other games, yet remains totally individual all at the same time. When it landed in my inbox, I have to admit, I ...[Read More]

Tekken 7 review

Everyone has a Tekken story, whether that’s a tale from the first game, playing Tekken Bowl or laughing at the many ‘button mashing’ Tekken memes that have spawned over the years. For me the release o...[Read More]

Jump Stars review

Cast your mind back about, say, 30 years or so, I can’t remember that far back and some of you probably weren’t even alive. There was a massive blockbuster film starring Arnie called The R...[Read More]

ZHEROS The Forgotten Land DLC review

Like many, I picked up ZHEROES from Rimlight Studios, on the Games with Gold program a few months back. January 2016 it would appear. Where does the time go? The gameplay centres on two main character...[Read More]

The Town of Light review

With memories of The Park still ringing in my ears, there was no way I was going to miss out on getting my hands on The Town of Light, a stark look into the treatment of mental health patients at Ospe...[Read More]

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 qu...[Read More]

Black and White Bushido Review

Black and White Bushido is a monochome arena brawler game with a very simple gameplay premise, developed by Good Catch, who are a London based developer.  It’s fun to start with but does it have...[Read More]

Human: Fall Flat review

Protagonist Bob in Human: Fall Flat is akin to a toddler learning to walk. He haphazardly stumbles around the environments, bumping into objects and clinging on to them like a drunk trying to steady h...[Read More]

Seasons after Fall review

It’s not often I get the chance to review a title that doesn’t rely on just your reflexes or skill. There have been a few, however, The Turing Test, Inside & Pneuma spring to mind. Seasons after F...[Read More]

Injustice 2 review

I wish I had more time to delve into the world of comics (or graphic novels if you want to pretend you are being an adult about it) – because within minutes of starting Injustice 2, which takes ...[Read More]

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 review

To be a Sniper, you need the patience of a saint, finding a great location to scope out your environment, spotting enemies and setting up to take out your target. Then you have to consider the weather...[Read More]

The Sexy Brutale review

If Groundhog Day were to get married to Cluedo and go on to have a baby, then that child would be The Sexy Brutale. Intrigued? Then read on dear reader. The Sexy Brutale is a game co-produced by Madri...[Read More]

Voodoo Vince Remastered review

Cast your mind back 14 years. If you’re anything like me then remembering yesterday is a task. Voodoo Vince was released on the original Xbox and has been sat, gathering dust on the developer...[Read More]

Aaero review

Aaero is a game unlike anything i have played in years. I went into the review completely blind, having only heard rave reviews over social media, and what I found was a little gem of an independent g...[Read More]

Trove review in progress

To some it would be easy to dismiss Trove as “just another Minecraft clone”, but to do so would fail to appreciate the unique approach Trion Worlds have taken in their own personal take on the voxel-b...[Read More]

Resident Evil 7: Banned Footage DLC review

I know, I know, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard has been out for some time now, it’s only right though, in this day and age, of having multiple unplayed games on your Xbox that you’re reminded t...[Read More]

Kona review

The year is 1970. Set in Quebec in Northern Canada, Kona sees you as Private Investigator Carl Foubert, driving to meet his client at the nearby general store to investigate a case of vandalism. Event...[Read More]

Outlast 2 review

When we were approved to review Outlast 2 I jumped straight on it because I’m an idiot. I hate games that make me scared, except I love it at the same time. The number of times I’ve told t...[Read More]

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition review

It’s not often that I’ll play a first-person shooter other than Halo. It’s even less often that it’s a re-imagining of a title that was first released on the Xbox 360. Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition f...[Read More]

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 an...[Read More]

Blackwood Crossing Review

After checking out the trailer for Vision Games Publishing LTD’s Blackwood Crossing, I was expecting another typical mystery puzzle game, but it’s much more than that. You start your journey staring o...[Read More]

Snake Pass Review

Snake Pass is a throwback to the classic N64 era of simple but challenging gameplay.  It requires you to control, yes a snake, called Noodle, through 15 levels of climbing, swimming, flying and collec...[Read More]

LEGO City Undercover review

Nintendo Wii U users have been running around saving the LEGO World as Chase McCain for a few years and finally LEGO City Undercover has made its way over to consoles. But is it worth your time? Find ...[Read More]

Thimbleweed Park review

I’m often caught in a heady haze of remembering games. So many new games remind me of other games it’s almost head-spinningly painful. Thimbleweed Park could be forgiven for reminding me of classic ti...[Read More]

This is the Police review

This is the Police is, in its basic form, a police strategy game, wrapped inside a story featuring the last days of a stereotypical chief of police, Jack Boyd, in the fictional city of Freeburg in the...[Read More]

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight review

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is a retro 2D scrolling platformer, and that pretty much says it all. There’s a plethora of this type of game out for the current generation of consoles – g...[Read More]

Mass Effect Andromeda review

Mass Effect Andromeda isn’t quite the return for the series we all hoped for. It’s technically flawed, suffers from sections of poor writing, padded with dull and tedious side content, and lacks the s...[Read More]

88 Heroes review

88 heroes have 88 minutes to get through 88 levels to defeat Dr H8 and save the world. The only problem… some of the heroes are a bit on the rubbish side. Rising Star Games present a chaotic retro 2D ...[Read More]

Kitty Powers Matchmaker review

I was slightly frightened when the Editor-In-Chief first allocated Kitty Powers Matchmaker to myself for review. However, as the phrase says: “Never judge a book by its cover” as upon inve...[Read More]

Styx: Shards of Darkness review

It’s not often that I’ll out-and-out go for a stealth game. Firstly, and probably most unbelievably for those that know me, I don’t seem to have the patience. Secondly, I love a good digital punch-up....[Read More]

Table Top Racing World Tour review

The idea of tiny cars racing around a real world environment isn’t a new one. Micro Machines was probably one of the first way back in 1991.  Table Top Racing World Tour puts us right back into ...[Read More]

Ghost Recon Wildlands review

Ghost Recon Wildlands made some bold claims when it debuted with an exciting trailer promising lots of action and adventure. Can Ubisoft deliver on these promises? Read on to see how team Blue on Blue...[Read More]

Verdun review

Here I sit, ready to write my first ever “proper” game review and I face a bit of personal dilemma. You see, Verdun is not great. It’s not rubbish either. To be honest, the word “meh” springs to mind....[Read More]

Torment: Tides of Numenera review

In 1999 Planescape Torment took critics by storms, with its story focused roleplaying creating an experience that was more about lore and dialogue than combat and action. This critical success didn’t ...[Read More]

Vertical Drop Heroes HD review

It’s been a long time since I sat in front of a PC, loaded up a web browser and played a Flash game. Things have moved on a lot since those days and unfortunately some of these gems aren’t...[Read More]

Astro A50 wireless headset review

Over the years that I’ve been lucky enough to write reviews on all sorts of software and hardware. I have more headsets at home than any one person could need, but I was happier than ever when I took ...[Read More]

Chime Sharp review

The original Chime made the art of creation a simple and serene matter. The music puzzle game was a wonderful source of distraction and ultimately proved to be a lot of fun despite limited content. Ch...[Read More]
