Railway Empire review

Railway Empire is right up my street, I’m by no means a train geek that writes down numbers of trains, in fact I barely recognise model numbers of trains. What I do find interesting is the logistics o...[Read More]

Samsara review

Samsara’s simple concepts and small scale hides surprisingly devious puzzles. It’s a puzzler that encourages you to think differently, and when it all clicks in your mind you can find yourself complet...[Read More]

The wonderfully unique Hand of Fate made quite the impression with its D&D-esque adventuring combined with a collectable card game and Batman Arkham series combat. The sequel has now arrived bring...[Read More]

Super Lucky’s Tale review

A lot is asked of modern 3D platformers, largely because the giants of the genre have perfected so many of the mechanics of these terrific adventure games. Bright and welcoming visuals and audio, intu...[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

Star Wars Battlefront 2 review

Despite its iffy UI, I really enjoyed Star Wars Battlefront. Sure it had some issues, but it looked great and gave me the experience of being slap bang in the middle of the Star Wars universe – and wi...[Read More]

Capture The Flag? No. In “Oh My Godheads” the aim of the game is to Capture The Head. Read on if this piques your interest! Developed by Spanish company Titutitech and published by the Squ...[Read More]

Dungeons 3 review

For those of us who gamed in the 90s, Bullfrog’s Dungeon Keeper is a title that is fondly remembered. The concept of building an intricate dungeon consisting of multiple rooms that cater to and theref...[Read More]

The original The Evil Within’s setting of the mind of a psychopath; a whole world contained within a mind that others could access through a device, made for some excellent horror, and allowed element...[Read More]

The latest in the long line of one of the most popular simulation games has finally made its way to console. But will The Sims 4 on console make say “DagDag” (hello), or leave you feeling “Awasa poa” ...[Read More]

LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 review

When LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 arrived I was happy for a number of reasons – the main one being that I didn’t have to watch my boys play the old game anymore, they’ve played well over a 100 hour...[Read More]

Call of Duty: WW2 review

As I finished my playthrough of Call of Duty: WW2, it was clear to me that Sledgehammer Games make the best Call of Duty titles. I’ll be honest, I do prefer modern shooters, but this is up there with ...[Read More]

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]

Sonic Forces review

The little blue hedgehog really needs absolutely no introduction does he? If you don’t know who Sonic is then google it because you really have led a sheltered gaming life. Like Mario did for Ni...[Read More]

Ben 10 review

Right, strap in people. This is going to be bumpy. The Ben 10 franchise is not unknown to me. It was a huge thing back in the 2000s, and the fact that my son was a toddler during the same time meant t...[Read More]

Wolfenstein 2 – The New Colossus Review

I have fond memories of Wolfenstein 3D. It was installed on all three of the PC’s when I was at college in the early 1990’s (Yes, we only had 3 PC’s at college!). It was a regular pa...[Read More]

Just Dance 2018 review

For weeks now our conversations on Slack have involved Just Dance 2018 and who was going to review it, for 5 out of the last 6 years it’s been me and this year will be no different! It makes sense I g...[Read More]

ELEX review

WRC7 review

Even as a spectator, rally driving appears to be more difficult than any other racing sport. I mean, you go extremely fast in F1, NASCAR is just driving in a big circle very fast, but neither of these...[Read More]

Assassin’s Creed Origins review

Assassin’s Creed Origins kicks things off slowly. The pace may in fact put you off – but stick with it – by the time the ending climaxes you will be more than satisfied with the story of how it all be...[Read More]

Life Is Strange: Before The Storm Episode 2 – Brave New World review

The second and penultimate episode of the prequel to the highly loved Life Is Strange is here. Will Episode 2, subtitled Brave New World, improve on Episode 1- Awake, or will it suffer from Act 2̵...[Read More]

Cuphead Review

There is a day in my life I will never forget, but for all the wrong reasons. I had been on a fad diet for a few weeks and as a result my body was a bit out of sorts, mainly lacking in fibre. Which in...[Read More]

Middle-earth: Shadow of War Review

Mordor less? That certainly is the question. Can the award-winning hit from Monolith, 2014’s Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, go the route of Empire, The Two Towers, and Flash Season 2? Better wh...[Read More]

SHINY review

theHunter: Call of the Wild review

When I was first handed this game, I was a bit apprehensive. Hunting is a bit of a controversial subject, what with it being currently prohibited from practice in the UK. So, if I’m truly being honest...[Read More]

Dead Alliance Review

Dead Alliance is one of those games where I was really excited about playing it, as we all know I’m a bit of a sucker for some hype. I watched a few videos but stayed away from reviews just in c...[Read More]

Resident Evil Revelations review

Sometimes being a game reviewer isn’t all it seems. Yes, reviewing a game you are looking forward to playing is great (eg.Tacoma), and unearthing a real gem that you had no intention of playing ...[Read More]
