State of Decay 2 review

The original State of Decay on 360 scratched a zombie itch that no other titles on the market, (for the consoles, anyway), could reach. Primarily, and technically I believe it is tied to the games for...[Read More]

Super Mega Baseball 2 review

Here in the good old United Kingdom we are brought up on Football, Cricket and Rugby, but certain American sports have become popular over the years with amateur and semi-pro Basketball and American F...[Read More]

Immortal Redneck review

Immortal Redneck doesn’t require a massive long drawn out review, basically because it’s not a massive game with lots of elements to it. What is essentially a roguelike FPS dungeon crawler...[Read More]

Far Cry 5 review

Ever since playing Far Cry 3 with Rich in co-op I’ve always looked forward to the next game, I didn’t enjoy Far Cry 4 as much and never got round to primal, but I’ve had an absolute blast with Far Cry...[Read More]

Burnout Paradise Remastered review

Burnout Paradise used to keep me up at night. “Just one more race!” I’d shout, which always meant at least three more. Trying to come up with as many silly faces as possible for Kinect when you perfor...[Read More]

Tiles Review

As initial offerings go, Tiles from Romans I XVI Gaming is a pretty decent first release.  With a raft of developer all looking to offer gamers the “next big thing” or alternatively jump on the latest...[Read More]

TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge review

TT Isle of Man is bloody hard, to be honest I could just end the review right there. I’m (sort of) professional however, so I’ll go into so more detail. Kylotonn Games have created an excellent simula...[Read More]

Mutant Football League review

Not to be confused with Mutant League Football, although it’s pretty much the reboot/spiritual successor, especially as Mutant Football League is headed up the designer of the original MLF. Mutant Foo...[Read More]

Maize review

I could start this review with a few “corny” jokes, or discuss whether this game is “A-maize-ing, or even comment on how it “Barley” meets the standard of current-gen gra...[Read More]

Life is Strange: Before The Storm – Part 3: Hell is Empty review

Spintires: Mudrunner review

From time to time it’s good to take a break from the norm and play something different or in this case, unusual. Spintires: Mudrunners is a peculiar game – all things considered – it shouldn’t work. W...[Read More]
