Strider Review

Strider

“Assassinate Grand Master Meio”. As Strider Hiryu descends into Kazakh City this is the only objective given. No backstory, just go kill some guy. And to do so will require cutting your way through an army of soldiers in this surprisingly fun reboot. Borrowing elements from various games in the Strider series, for the more modern amongst you the easiest ... Read More »

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 Review

Hyperdimension Neptunia

First things first, we never played the original Hyperdimension Neptunia in which Re;Birth is a remake of, so we’re coming at this with a fresh perspective. And if this is said to improve elements from the original, it’s not a series we’re that keen to delve into. Of course, there’s some stuff to like, but much like Mugen Souls Z, ... Read More »

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited Review

20140605141752

There are two things that will hit you immediately if you are making your first foray into the Disgaea series with this entry. First the lighthearted overtones to the story and characters and second, the initially confusing mechanics. But with a little patience and some effort from yourself, you can find a very rewarding experience.  You take on the role ... Read More »

The Last Tinker: City of Colors Review

thelasttinker

Remember that blurry photo in the tabloids that looked like Tearaway was leaving Assassin’s Creed’s home very early in the morning and there was all that speculation? Well of course not, because that would be absurd, these are video games and not human beings.  However The Last Tinker is definitely the illegitimate love child of those two games and is ...

Pinball FX2: Guardians of the Galaxy Table Review

PBFX2GOTG

For those not familiar with the crack-like glory that is Pinball FX 2 (also known as Zen Pinball on some formats) maybe a little background is needed. It is a pinball game (yes, really) that has been released on practically every format currently available and has an expansive library of tables, some of which are themed around licensed properties such ...

Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition Review

ss2

It says a lot about Sony’s recent attitude when it comes to what it allows on its consoles. Not a week seems to go by where there isn’t a new Indie title coming out on their system. Many of them have still been what you would consider traditional game types. However, the simulator genre is something that only a few ... Read More »

Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney Review

ProfLaytonvsPhoenixWright

What initially may seem as a bizarre combination has actually turned out to be quite ingenious. Despite different approaches to everything from character designs to gameplay, the courtroom drama of Phoenix Wright and the puzzle solving antics of Layton have melded into something that not once felt out of place. It wasn’t long before we were sucked into the world ... Read More »

Gravity Crash Ultra Review

gcuvita

Was you one of those that played Gravity Crash when it released on the PS3? You know, those days before Indies were mainstream. If so then you’ll hopefully remember a game that was rather challenging, yet awfully satisfying, maybe you even got the PSP port of the game.  Well now Gravity Crash has been re-imagined, given a lick of paint ...

Metrico Review

006_Metrico_branded_screenshot_4

Infographics! boring when it comes to business presentations, mildly more interesting when used to visually show stats such as what percentage of goals were scored by a sportsman from certain areas, with which foot and in which minute of the game. But did you know they can also be the base for a puzzle platforming game? Well the team at Digital Dreams hope you will find the concept an exciting one. Read More »

Table Top Racing Review

ttr

Micro Machines was a damned fine series of games, working brilliantly, both in  single player and local multiplayer  variations. It was the ideal party game. However it has been a long time since not only the games, but indeed the toys were popular, but there are some who still loved what was on offer and it is clear the is ... Read More »
