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. Released on PC back in 2010, and finally available on consoles bundled with its expansion, Justine, and semi-sequel A Machine for Pigs (developed by Dear Esther devs The Chinese Room)…

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…

Weeping Doll (PSVR) Review – Poundland Power Ranger

I don’t think TianShe Media, the makers of PSVR horror game, Weeping Doll intended it to be a comedy, and I sure as hell wasn’t expecting it either. Creepy dolls are one of those things which are guaranteed to shit me right up, however the sheer awkwardness of the execution made me chuckle rather than…

Windlands (PSVR) Review – If You’re Gonna Spew…

The ability to amplify the emotional and physical connection that players have while playing a game is what makes virtual reality potentially so compelling and exciting. In Psytec Game’s first-person platformer Windlands, players chuck themselves into the void with a pair of as you grapple hooks, swinging around a ruined civilisation high up in the…

Pixel Gear (PSVR) Review – Block Party

Pixel Gear is another one of those PSVR games that came out of nowhere. An arcade shooter with Minecraft style graphics, that like Ace Banana feels more like proof of concept, than a fully fledged game. Although I did enjoy my time with Pixel Gear, it’s worth bearing in mind that there’s not a whole…

Ace Banana (PSVR) Review – Bananarama

As is often the case with launch titles, some are great, others may as well be tech demos. But with Sonys PSVR I think calling some of the titles experiments would be far more apt, they’re barely games, they have some value, but they’re not going to hold your attention for very long Oasis Games’…

Jazzpunk: Director’s Cut (PS4) Review – Bat**** Country

Jazzpunk is a first-person adventure game from Necrophone Games, in which you play as Polybank (a silent protagonist), working as a spy in a fictionalised 1950’s world. It is also completely, marvellously, absurd. It feels like being inside Vic and Bob’s head while they are on a particularly intense acid trip. In a good way.…

Harmonix VR (PSVR) Review – Tune in, Drop Out

The first thing to note about Harmonix VR, is that it sin’t a game. If you;re expectinv some kind of VR based rhythum game, you’re going to be sorely disssapointed. (I’d reccomend checking out the latest re-release of REZ). Harmonix VR is basically a way to get people to sit back, relax and spend a…
