Black Mirror Review

Sometimes a game is in dire need of a reboot. Other times? Not so much. When a game was classic in the first place and hasn’t aged at all, the reboot can come across as forced and pointless. Wor...Read More

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier Review

Games are a fairly new medium. What originally started in the early 70s is now a multi-million dollar market, yet we still don’t really know what the future holds for gaming. It’s constant...Read More

The Sims 4: Xbox One and PS4 Review

We’ve all wished our lives went in a different direction at one point or another, and when The Sims came out back in 2000, we could have a second life. Well, not really, but we could run our own famil...Read More

Just Dance 2018 Review

Just Dance is the last quintessential dancing party game series left with new entries in it. The Xbox’s ill fated Kinect had the excellent Dance Central games, but after Microsoft basically eras...Read More

Cat Quest Review

Once in a while, a game crosses my desk that reminds me of that cliched tagline overused by many: Don’t judge a book by its cover. In my case it’s: Don’t judge a game by its cover ar...Read More

My Time at Portia Review

Harvest Moon has been a pretty popular game for quite a long time. It might seem weird to start a review of an unrelated game by mentioning Harvest Moon, but fans of the series (genre, maybe?) will pr...Read More

Star Wars: Battlefront II Review

The build-up for Star Wars: Battlefront II is somewhat reminiscent of the hype and build of 1999’s The Phantom Menace. Episode I was promised to herald in a new era of Star Wars, it was the firs...Read More

Sonic Forces Review

Earlier this year, Sega revitalized its biggest blue mascot by giving it a fully revamped 2D game: Sonic Mania. Produced by a group of independent devs (not Sonic Team), the blue hedgehog’s newe...Read More

L.A. Noire for Switch Review

Incorrectly regarded as a Rockstar Games title (it was developed by Team Bondi), crime adventure game L.A. Noire was highly praised when it initially released in May 2011. The gritty drama of the case...Read More

Ashes Cricket Review

Cricket is one of those sports that has always had a spotty history in the video game world. Back in the early PS1 and PS2 days, fans had Brian Lara Cricket and EA’s Cricket series, with the for...Read More

Far from Noise Review

The cliffhanger is a staple of storytelling. We usually encounter it as a story, chapter or episode comes to an end with the effect of urging us onto the next instalment (or leaving us hanging and won...Read More

American Truck Simulator: New Mexico DLC Review

I have never been particularly interested in trucks. Sure, as a kid I used to get excited when we passed a huge semi-articulated lorry on the motorway, but as an adult at the wheel of a small car, I’v...Read More

Nioh: Complete Edition PC Review

So it has finally come. Nioh, the even more Japanese version of Dark Souls, has made it to the PC in all its gory glory. Snap judgments aside (its similarity to Dark Souls may be overstated), many peo...Read More

Hand of Fate 2 Review

Hand of Fate 2 is the sequel to Hand of Fate by Defiant Development, a development group based in Australia. Much like its predecessor, Hand of Fate 2 is what I can only describe as a board game if yo...Read More

Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon Review

I have not played the first Nights of Azure game, so I can’t compare the sequel to the original; however, I have seen the trailer for Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon, and based on what ...Read More

Demon Gaze II Review

It feels a little strange to be talking about another first-person dungeon crawler so soon after my last review (which was for Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth), especially since we said that the gen...Read More
