Torment: Tides of Numenera (PS4) Review

Torment: Tides of Numenera feels like a classic RPG from the late 90s. It’s a literary game replete with descriptive text and weighty, philosophical themes. inExile’s latest, doesn’t trade in flashy graphics and gimmickry. No Torment; Tides of Numenera is a game of substance. A vast, open-ended isometric RPG that tells a twisting apocalyptic tale…

Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin (PSVR) Review

It’s hard to believe that Psychonauts, is almost 12. Double Fine’s endearing psychic-powered platformer has been in the limbic system of gamers ever since, not only because it has seen numerous ports and re-releases, (hitting the PS4 only a couple months ago), and also that, finally, thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign a full-blown sequel…

Sniper Elite 4 (PS4) Review – Good Eye Sniper

I’m starting to feel a little bit worried about my state of mind. You see, when I reviewed Sniper Elite 3 way back in 2014, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the German officer I accidentally castrated with .30 calibre bullet. This may have had something to do with the fact that I could…

Yakuza 0 (PS4) Review – The Shenmue and Mary Chain

If you think that Yakuza is just Japanese GTA, I hate to disappoint you but you are wrong Sunshine. Yes, both are open world games about the criminal underbelly of fictionalised recreations of real-life cities, GTA does America (And hopefully one day they’ll do the UK again) and Yakuza Japan, (Tokyo and Osaka to be…

The Little Acre (PS4) Review

Pewter Game’s The Little Acre is an adorable slice of adventuring that effortlessly blends Broken Sword with Don Bluth in a game that fans of old school point and clicks will be hard pressed not to fall in love with. Set in contemporary County Mayo Ireland in the 1950s, the Little Acre tells the Story…

Amnesia: Collection (PS4) Review – Fear of the Dark

Whenever talk turns to the best Horror games ever made, it is usually agreed that Frictional Games’ Amnesia: The Dark Descent is one of them.

The Assembly (PSVR) Review – Worse for Wear

As another first-person puzzle game set in a mysterious lab complex, The Assembly doesn’t stand out all that much. The puzzles are ok, the narrative ticks along nicely and it doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. It’s just not particularly memorable. However, as a launch title for PSVR one needs to consider whether the game benefits from…

LASTFIGHT (PS4) Review – Cubic Zirconia

Anyone who has ever played Power Stone, wants one thing, Capcom to make another Power Stone.  The short-lived series for SEGAs Ill-fated Dreamcast, is easily one of the finest arena fighting games ever made. However, with SEGA long out of the console game and Capcom abandoning the series over a decade ago fans of the…

Tethered (PSVR) Review – String Theory

The launch line up for Sony’s PlayStation VR has been incredibly strong and diverse, with arguably a better line up of available games than many console launches. Among these initial titles is Secret Sorcery’s Tethered, a god game set in a fantasy world full of cute creatures for you to lord it over that’s best…

Super Dungeon Bros (PS4) Review – Party On!

Super Dungeon Bros. should be my kind of game; a colourful, metal-themed Dungeon Crawler with bags of personality. However, control issues, a lack of checkpoints, and severe difficulty spikes mare what could have otherwise been an excellent adventure. After a brief opening video that introduces players to the Bros, four colourful knights named after famous…
