Forza Horizon 2 Review

FH2

Forza Horizon 2, the offshoot of Microsoft’s flagship racing IP evolves and sets the bar for the new generation of racers. Forza Horizon is one of the best racing games from the ‘last’ generation of consoles in anyway you want to slice it. Bright colours, satisfyingly chunky arcade-style car handling, a good sized open world, and that all important XP ... Read More »

Murasaki Baby Review

MIB_Screenshot_011

Being a baby must be terrifying. Walking is difficult, everything is massive, and while you don’t know it yet – everything is dangerous. My daughter managed to bump her head recently after an altercation with – of all things – a cushion. At that moment all hell breaks loose, but turning to mummy will resolve all problems, guaranteed – or ... Read More »

Chariot Review

chariot

Chariot by Frima Studios is a physics based 2D platformer where you, a princess must carry, pull & push your dead dad, the king, through ancient caves to a suitable & worthy resting place for the king. Obviously this must be filled to capacity with gold as it cannot be any old tomb. While you and a ‘friend’ are doing ... Read More »

Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed Review

akiba

Akihabara is a unique place. Located in Tokyo’s Chiyoda prefecture, what was once nicknamed Electric Town after its prevalence of electronic goods shops is now a hive for otaku culture quite unlike anywhere else on Earth. It’s the place to get everything geeky that you ever wanted, as well as soaking up a unique atmosphere from another world not quite ... Read More »

Alien: Isolation Review

alienisolation

Alien: Isolation is an important game. It is important for one main reason.  The Alien franchise has been through the mire of late, with mediocre films and awful games. Alien: Isolation is the Dr Sam Beckett of videogames right now, with the chance to put right, that once went wrong.  Those who played the awful Alien: Colonial Marines would be ... Read More »

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

mordor

Coming into Shadow of Mordor as someone who isn’t into the Middle Earth saga at all, felt a bit odd initially. Other games based around Middle Earth, such as the various Lord of the Rings titles have come across like they are for fans only, with the only exception being the LEGO games. However Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is ... Read More »

Futuridium EP Deluxe Review

Futuridium EP Deluxe

Futuridium is the latest in the long line of high score chasing shooters to arrive on Sony platforms. A super colourful, retro looking game, Futuridium is certainly striking in its appearance. Imagine if the original Starfox took place in an 80’s disco and that’s sort of what you have here. The main aim of the game is to destroy cubes ... Read More »

Castlestorm: Definitive Edition Review

CastleStorm Viking Land

After being released on most formats already in 2013, Castlestorm has arrived on Ps4 and Xbox One with the subtitle Definitive Edition, slightly upscaled visuals and DLC from the previous releases included as part and parcel. Castlestorm follows the story of Sir Gareth, a noble (if slightly greedy) knight in his endeavours of commanding his troops and entering the battlefield ... Read More »

Fairy Fencer F Review

FFF

Fairy Fencer F is the latest RPG out of Japan to feature an extraneous letter at the end of its name. It boasts an impressive staff roll, most notably Nobuo Uematsu (of Final Fantasy fame) who is responsible for much of the soundtrack, and character designers from the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. But… what does that F stand for? F is ... Read More »
