Gunscape review: DIY retro shooter

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Gunscape may have caught your attention in recent times, it’s been presented as a customisable retro shooter. The PS4, Xbox One and PC game provides all the elements that are reminiscent of classic FPS titles such as Doom and Wolfenstein, and leaves them at the player’s disposal to create their own maps. Players can then try out other people...[Read More]

Assault Android Cactus review: One of the best indie games on PlayStation

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. There are hundreds of thousands of rogue robots filling a space station with their murderous rage. Who are you going to call? If you answered “a rag tag group of android chicks to smash the robots with their arsenal of kickass weaponry,” you were somehow completely right. Assault Android Cactus is a twin stick arcade shooter made by Austral...[Read More]

Street Fighter V review: Gets the job done

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. As someone who is generally not that into one-on-one fighting games, I found reviewing Street Fighter V rather tricky. It is a game that you clearly need to invested the time to hone your skills in order to get the most out of it. Whilst button mashing the range of basic punches, kicks and throws will let you breeze through most matches against AI oppon...[Read More]

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD review

Copy supplied by publisher. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is the latest Zelda classic to be given the HD treatment, this time for Wii U. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of this release is the fact Twilight Princess is turning 10 this year… that certainly went by fast. The game itself  hasn’t changed much from the original Wii/GameCube version, yet there are enough bells and...[Read More]

The Flame in the Flood review: A boar broke both my legs

Reviewed on: PC, also available for Xbox One. A calming harmonica plays folk music as I stroll around an island with my dog. This is the first haven I’ve discovered in the flooded ruins of America, I’m excited and optimistic to find what goodies it has to offer. Is that a pig I see? How delightful! Oh, wait… is it charging at me? It’s totally charging at me. Okay well there...[Read More]

The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 1: old dog, some new tricks

Reviewed on: PC It’s no secret I’m a fan of Telltale Games’ Walking Dead series. It’s dark, intense, makes you anxiously squirm with some of the decisions it throws at you and will deliver a swift gut-punch to your emotions at a moments notice. Now while many of us are anticipating The Walking Dead Season 3, given Season 2 left us in a very interesting situation, Michonne i...[Read More]

Far Cry Primal review: BEES!?

Reviewed on: Xbox One. Copy supplied by publisher. Crouching in a dense Mesolithic treeline you slowly creep towards your enemy. They’ve eaten members of your tribe and attacked your village, this attack is going to be personal.  You look over your  weaponry to see which is best to take them down, at your disposal you have spears, clubs, a bow and a motherfucking sabre tooth tiger that you s...[Read More]

Layers of Fear review: Revisiting the horror masterpiece

  After borderline obsessively playing horror games for years, it comes to a sad point where you feel like you’ve seen it all. Sure, you get the occasional gem that stands out from all the rest but you can’t help but think “I’ve seen this before.” Horror, to me, is the genre that constantly goes back to its root stereotypes and cliches. “Oh look a group of ...[Read More]

Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition Review: The Driving Dead

-Aaron Birch Beginning life as a large piece of DLC for the vanilla Dying Light, The Following soon grew out of its initial scope, and developer Techland quickly re-purposed the project as a full-fledged expansion. This is no paltry bit of wasteful DLC you’ll complete in under an hour (Arkham Knight, I’m looking at you!), this is a full campaign that has plenty to offer. The fact that ...[Read More]

XCOM 2 review: Unfairly good

Reviewed on: PC There will be few moments in your life when you’ll be required to make decisions as huge, and under the same amounts of pressure, as ones you’ll make when playing XCOM 2. Will you take the 50/50 shot to kill an enemy pinning down a team mate, hold your ground and only fire defensively or relocate to a better position but also expose your flank? Could another team mate b...[Read More]

Firewatch review: Time for a nice, terrifying stroll

Reviewed on: PC Within the first 10 minutes, I knew Firewatch had me in its grasp. Much like the opening to Pixar’s Up, Firewatch introduces a cute, if implausible, story of new love that mere minutes of exposition later broke my heart. The game hadn’t really even begun yet and already I knew it was going to be something special. While I can’t say I felt exactly the same way by t...[Read More]

Unravel review: We’re not crying, you’re crying

  Don’t let its appearance pull the wool over your eyes, Unravel is perhaps one of the realest experiences to hit the gaming market in a long time. Developed by Swedish developers Coldwood Interactive and published by EA, this narrative driven platformer/puzzle game hybrid is a refreshing and emotionally packed experience that will equally captivate you and make you want to scream uncon...[Read More]
