Lone Survivor: Directors Cut (WiiU) Review

Alone in a dingy run down flat, at the top of an aging, poorly designed edifice. The electricity was shut off days ago. The cooker’s bust and there’s a legion of flesh eating mutants roaming the halls waiting to consume your flesh and maybe even desecrate your corpse. Each day is a bleak, soul-destroying and…

Destiny Review: Digital Marmite

So this review’s a little late.  Okay, that’s an understatement.  It’s really bloody late to the point of being almost completely redundant. If you haven’t heard of Destiny, already read one of millions of other reviews, impressions and the usual rantings and ravings in comments sections (or even played the game) then you’ve probably been…

Metro Redux Review: The Angels have Gone

I don’t think there could be a worse fate than being forced to spend the rest of my life living in a tube station. If it were the London Underground at least it would probably be a relatively peaceful existence akin to living in a poorly ventilated monastery that had taken a vow of silence.…

The Swapper Review: Where is My Mind?

Great science fiction is by its very nature a work of philosophical discourse and The Swapper is no different, venturing into the murky waters of metaphysical discourse by pitting a hero whose actions are governed by the Aristotelian principles of matter and form against an unmoving enemy that embodies the principles of Descartes 2nd meditation.…

Pure Pool (PS4) Review: Bar Room Blitz

Pure Pool is one of the most realistic looking games of digital spots and stripes, sorry 8-ball, I’ve ever played. It looks superb, nigh on photo realistic. From the reflection of the surroundings on the balls and the veneer of the wood on the table, down to the texture of the felt that looks like…

Magic 2015 Review: Curse of the Microtransaction

The first thing Magic 2015 asks you is how much experience you have with Magic: The Gathering, having reviewed last year’s edition of the game, I said a bit, hoping to avoid any tutorials and have the game go easy on me, The game’s response? Tough shit! I don’t care if you created Magic: The…

The Wolf Among Us Review: Who’s Afraid of Bigby Wolf?

Just a little note before I get into the review proper, This review contains spoilers after the first episode because it’s almost impossible to be candid about the whole plot of an episodic series.  As such, I wouldn’t eccommend reading past the next episode you were planning on playing. Now that’s out of the way,…

Armillo Review: Smooth on the Inside…

Whenever someone mentions an armadillo, the first thing I think of is that old Dime Bar advert starring Harry Enfield So, when I first heard about Vancouver based Fuzzy Wuzzy Games debut title Armillo, the first thing I thought was ‘Crunchy on the outside, smooth on the inside, ARMADILLOS!’ However, after playing the game, it…

Blue Estate (PS4) Review: It’s a State of Mind

If you haven’t read Victor Kalvechev’s Blue Estate, you should run down to the nearest comic book store and purchase it in its entirety. It’s a cleverly written, well paced and witty mob romp with all the twists and turns of your average Guy Richie movie except replace the east end of London with Hollywood. It’s…

Sniper Elite III Review: Sorry Hans

Whilst sniping in most shooters, I find there’s a bizarre disconnect between myself and my actions in game. You line your cross hairs up with your target, pull the trigger and the collection of pixels that was your foe is now little more than a headless ragdoll on the ground. In Sniper Elite, you’ll see…

Another World 20th Anniversary Edition Review

It’s amazing to think how much gaming has progressed in 20 years, (well 23 to be exact) the difference between games now and those made in the early 90s is staggering. When I first played Another World (Out of This World in the US) on my Amiga 500 all those years ago, it fast became…

Worms Battlegrounds Review: INCOMING!!!

I guess the most important thing you need to know about Worms Battlegrounds before we get into it is that it isn’t an entirely new entry in the long running series. It is in fact the new gen console version of last August’s Worms Clan Wars for PC, which is itself a direct sequel to…
