Orbibot Review

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there’s nothing better than a relaxing ball roller; one that looks to harness the magic of Marble Madness or Marble Blast Ultra from all those years back. And in recent months ...

Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead Review

Headup Games and Clockstone Software have been on one heck of journey with their Bridge Constructor series. Their first outing, the inaugural Bridge Constructor, really lacked in thrills and frills, while Bridge Constructor Stunts injected a bit of fun to ...

Xbox Series X Console Review – Laying the Foundations

As we move into the fourth iteration of Xbox consoles, the lines are starting to become more blurred between these generations. Whereas before you could, from a graphical standpoint, more easily identify which console generation a particular game was from, ...

The Falconeer Review – Screeching for Greatness

Did you know that a single person can create a video game? That’s absolutely crazy to think about. Nevertheless, we’ve had some great solo-developed games over the years. 2005’s indie hit Braid was created by Jonathan Blow, the metroidvania wonder ...

Evergate Review – That’s the Spirit

Little Ki – the cover star of Evergate – instantly reminded me of Ori from Blind Forest and Will of the Wisps fame. He’s a spirit too and, if we’re being honest, quite adorable. He discovers a mysterious connection with ...

Xbox Series S Console Review – The second console for a second room. For now.

For years I’ve been waiting for Microsoft to finally ditch the drive and allow us Xbox gamers the chance to embrace a fully digital life. In fact, when the original Xbox One, then Xbox One S, and then Xbox One ...

BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites Review

I remember, way back in the mists of time when I was young and impressionable, playing Bloodrayne on my PS2. I don’t remember much else about it, to be honest, but I certainly recall enjoying it. What this is leading ...

Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Review – Komplete Kollection

Over the last few years it has felt like the older beat ‘em ups were on their way out; Tekken has changed everything that was once good about the series, and the latest Street Fighter never even launched on Xbox. ...

Overcooked! All You Can Eat Review – Compliments to the Chef

I vividly remember playing the original Overcooked! for the first time a few years back, and getting instantly hooked. A friend recommended it, and before I knew it I had lost hours trying to juggle incoming orders to keep hungry ...

Rogue Company Xbox Series X|S Review – One More Game

Despite being a person who plays video games (a gamer, one might say) I’m not terribly fond of competitive games. I absolutely loathe any time that I’m not in control of the action happening on screen. If half of what ...

NBA 2K21 Next Generation Review

The best documentary series I’ve seen through 2020, and my saving grace during the first lockdown, was the excellent The Last Dance. Charting the heroics of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls from the ’80s to the last season in ...

Yakuza: Like a Dragon Review – New Hero, Same Excellent Yakuza

15 years ago, a legend was born: Kazuma Kiryu arrived in the first Yakuza game and instantly became a fan favourite. Launching a year later in the West, the franchise was almost canned before it could gain any momentum – ...

Mørkredd Review

Gaming with friends can at times be a trying experience. Go online and try to play as a team and you’ll always find someone who lets things down, mostly due to selfishness and the need for glory hunting. How many ...

Madden NFL 21 NXT LVL Edition Review

As a Philadelphia Eagles and general NFC East onlooker, this NFL season has been – for lack of a better word – bad. Hopes were high at the start of the season, but in recent weeks have all but disappeared. ...

Football Manager has been the go-to series for fans of ‘the beautiful game’ for many years now, enabling the average person to test their management and tactical skills by attempting to lead a team to glory, or at the very ...

WRC 9 Review – Xbox Series X

Having released just before the launch of the new consoles, the next-gen update for WRC 9 had to wait just like we did for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 to release. However, it is now here, but what does ...

Immortals Fenyx Rising Review – Assassin’s Tween

Much has already been made of how Immortals Fenyx Rising looks a lot like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild mixed with Assassin’s Creed. And coming from the development team at Ubisoft Quebec that made Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, ...

Override 2: Super Mech League Review – One Mech Forward, Two Mechs Back

One of my favorite games from 2018 was Override: Mech City Brawl. It is a plucky little indie where you pilot skyscraper-sized mechs in order to fight other mechs and the occasional swarm of alien invaders. Parts of the game ...

Blacksmith of the Sand Kingdom Review

With the launch of a new generation of Xbox hardware, namely the Series X|S consoles, you’d think that game developers and publishers would be falling over themselves to make games that can fully utilise this newfound power. Surprisingly, one of ...

The Medium Review – Welcome to The Next Generation of Xbox

When it was first announced at the Inside Xbox May showcase in 2020, The Medium was a universal bright spot amongst an otherwise controversial showcase. A unique concept, some truly next-gen looking gameplay and the promise of Silent Hill composer ...

Another Dawn Review

How’s this for an exciting beginning to a game? You find yourself alone on a rowing boat, slightly offshore from a beautiful tropical island. Intriguing, huh? Instantly your phone-cum-walkie-talkie, begins to play an audio message of someone screaming, obviously in ...

Persian Nights 2: The Moonlight Veil Review

There’s something comforting about settling down to an Artifex Mundi hidden object game. Every couple of months they arrive, and you can be sure they won’t be much different than the last. You could sneer and call it lazy – ...

Immortals Fenyx Rising: A New God DLC Review

A sleeper hit if ever there was one, Immortal Fenyx Rising flew under the radar when it launched – when sandwiched in between Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Cyberpunk 2077, it was always a tough launch window. Word of mouth though ...

UltraGoodness 2 Review

The sign that says ‘Days since the last twin-stick shooter’ can go back to zero, as UltraGoodness 2 is here and it’s the latest in a long line of twin-stickers. But we’re game: if you’re calling yourself UltraGoodness then you ...

Control Ultimate Edition – Xbox Series X|S Review

I’m ashamed to say that I hadn’t played Control until this review. Games will often reach a critical mass, with everyone carping on and on about how good they are, putting me off playing them until I have a long ...

Demon Hunter: Revelation Review

Artifex Mundi hidden object games are largely immune to criticism. They’re a comfort food for their fans, and the repetition and lack of innovation is kind of the point. If one of their games launched without a female investigator hunting ...

Anodyne 2: Return to Dust Review – Fever Dream

Have you ever had a great inside joke with a friend or family member? Maybe it’s one that has kept you laughing for years. To you and those that you share the joke with, it’s absolutely hilarious. Now, have you ...

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 4 Review

After playing the third instalment of Monster Energy Supercross last year, I am suddenly the expert of all things dirt bike in TXH Towers. But in reality, I’m probably just the least clueless out of the group. However, with Monster ...

Planet Coaster Console Edition World’s Fair Review – Build Your Own Mini-Epcot

As a youngster, I was fortunate enough to go to Florida and spend three weeks exploring all the theme parks there. One that always stood out – amongst a memory bank full of standout moments – was walking round the ...

Monster Truck Championship was only released in October of 2020, but it’s already been optimised for Xbox Series X|S, steamrolling it’s way on to next-gen consoles. Anyway, we were pretty impressed with it the first time around, with it delivering ...

Asdivine Cross Review

“Another day, another dollar” – that’s how the old saying goes, isn’t it? Well, let’s change that up a bit to “Another day, another KEMCO retro-styled JRPG”, shall we? It may not trip off the tongue as easily, but it ...

Crypto by POWGI Review

My grandma was one of those people that would insist on having at least one puzzle book on the coffee table at all times. Should the need arise – or if there was a spare moment – she would delve ...

Sumatra: Fate of Yandi Review

It’s always a bit dangerous to look back in time with rose-tinted glasses, thinking back to a game we loved playing 10, 20, or 30 years ago, getting excited when we hear it’s been remastered and re-released. Then the disappointment ...

Spacebase Startopia Review – Reach for the Stars

It was only a few weeks ago that I brought you my first impressions of Spacebase Startopia, which was shaping up to be a promising game for fans of the genre. In fact, the game is actually a remake of ...

Hellbreachers Review

Coming from the masters of short games that give up the full Gamerscore hit within half an hour – yes, they of eastasiasoft – comes a new title, Hellbreachers. Now, unless I’m very much mistaken (and I usually am) this ...

Immortals Fenyx Rising: Myths of the Eastern Realm DLC Review

As one of the sleeper hits of 2020, the DLC for Immortals Fenyx Rising had a lot of expectation on its shoulders. The first new piece of content – A New God – acted as an epilogue to Fenyx’s tale ...

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Xbox Series X|S Review – A Revitalised Classic, Revitalised Again

Anyone with even just a passing interest in the classic Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games know that in recent years, they have been through the ringer more than a little bit. When news then struck that a new remastering was ...
