Devil May Cry HD Collection review: Smokin’!

Review on PS4, copy provided by publisher. Before there was God of War, Bayonetta or Darksiders, there was Devil May Cry. Originally released in 2001 for the Playstation 2, Devil May Cry (and its two sequels) starred Dante, the cocky half-demon demon hunter – clad in a striking red trench coat and sometimes also a shirt. Collectively, these games were massively popular, and set the standard ...[Read More]

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King review: The sincerest form of flattery

Reviewed on: Nintendo Switch. Copy purchased by reviewer. Let’s get this out of the way early: Blossom Tales is heavily influenced by The Legend of Zelda, in particular A Link to the Past on the Super Nintendo.

However, one of 2016’s best roguelikes, Enter the Gungeon, has just arrived on the syst...[Read More]

Knack II review: Knack with a vengeance

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. I should probably be up front and establish that I have never played Knack’s first outing, as it came out on the PS4 as a launch title before I had bought the system, and nobody was being particularly kind to the game either. Thankfully Knack II had my back, displaying a charming little intro as you start the game giving the cliffs notes vers...[Read More]
