Pode – PS4 | Review

Pode takes us on a journey of friendship; it’s an indie puzzle game developed by Henchman & Goon, a title which launched on Nintendo Switch in summer last year, and it has finally made its way onto PS4, not a moment too soon. From the very get-go, Pode is very…read more >
ChromaGun VR – PSVR | Review

ChromaGun VR – PSVR | Review

Developer Pixel Maniacs brings us ChromaGun. A simple paint gun puzzler that shares some similarities to that Portal game. On the surface it may look simple but this game will challenge you. So I put on my VR headset, charged up my aim controller and tried to remember my primary…read more >
Dirt Rally 2.0 – PS4 | Review

Dirt Rally 2.0 – PS4 | Review

I'm not someone that can be classed as a petrol head, but I do like driving games. I have to admit though I was a little daunted when I was asked to review Dirt 2.0. You see, I bought the first game and I was surprised by how hard and…read more >
Far Cry: New Dawn – PS4 | Review

Far Cry: New Dawn – PS4 | Review

When Ubisoft announced Far Cry New Dawn not even a year after the release of Far Cry 5 I was wary, to say the least - they did a similar thing with Far Cry Primal and it just didn’t do it for me, I did, however, love Far Cry 5,…read more >
Degrees of Separation – PS4 | Review

Degrees of Separation – PS4 | Review

Not often do we see a puzzle game passing by that's unique enough in its aesthetic to be noticeable. The platforming puzzle formula has been visited and re-visited more times than you can shake a stick at, which is why it's imperative to do something to stand out against the…read more >

Crackdown 3 – Xbox One | Review

Crackdown 3 – Xbox One | Review

They say 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder', which is just as well, because if I didn't know the Crackdown series was all about the fun, I probably wouldn't have given it a second look. It's fair to say Crackdown 3 looks pretty rubbish. It reminds me of…read more >
Mixups by Powgi – PS4 | Review

Mixups by Powgi – PS4 | Review

I've had many playful arguments with my wife over who is more intelligent. This has led to plenty of competition from playing games such as "Jeopardy" to "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" to everything else in-between. So when Mixups by POWGI fell in my lap, it was time to…read more >
Metro Exodus PS4 | Review

Metro Exodus PS4 | Review

Metro Exodus is, in many ways, the natural evolution of the Metro franchise. Given that this is a game filled with enemies who have rapidly mutated thanks to the nuclear fallout of the war in 2013, this seems oddly appropriate. The game is based on Metro 2035, the third book…read more >
Jump Force – Xbox One | Review

Jump Force – Xbox One | Review

I usually try to open a review with some kind of witty line, but this time I think I'll just jump right in. Jump Force is a 3D arena brawler from Namco Bandai, the company has a bit of experience in this field due to the fact that almost every…read more >
Spike Volleyball – PS4 | Review

Spike Volleyball – PS4 | Review

Yes, you read the title correctly, this is a review of a Volleyball simulator sports game. It isn’t the first sport most people would jump to but it’s fair to say it’s not a crowded market. Unless you factor in the Dead or Alive attempt at Volleyball then it might…read more >
Hyper Jam – PS4 | Review

Hyper Jam – PS4 | Review

We don’t see enough local multiplayer games these days in my opinion. When I sit down with friends or my kids and play some games together it's pure bliss. There is something great about sitting down in a room, laughing your head off and having some friendly competition. My boys…read more >
The Mage’s Tale – PSVR | Review

The Mage’s Tale – PSVR | Review

I do adore a good dungeon crawl and I remember playing text-based dungeon crawlers on my Commodore 64 to all hours. There is something extraordinary about scouring through sewers and castles, finding loot and defeating enemies. VR versions of these games could not be far away now we have PSVR,…read more >
8-Bit Hordes – PS4 | Review

8-Bit Hordes – PS4 | Review

Having reviewed 8-Bit Armies back in September, I was excited to get my hands on 8-bit Hordes to see if it maintained that fun, colourful & chaotic feel. Hordes comes in as the 2nd game of a 3-game series developed by Petroglyph Games, 8-Bit Invaders will be the final game. What…read more >
Observer – Nintendo Switch | Review

Observer – Nintendo Switch | Review

After watching the trailer for the Switch Version of Observer I was left excited. It looked dark, gritty and full of the sci-fi inspirations I love. It had Blade Runner influences, it had the dystopian look of a Bioshock game and I could not believe this was running on the…read more >
