Worms WMD (PS4) Review: Armageddon 2.0

I’m just going to lay my cards on the table, so that we can both get on with our lives and you can get to playing Worms W.M.D. If you’re a long-time fan, still waiting for a game that finally tops, or is at least as good as Amageddon. It’s here. Worms W.M.D is that…

Worms: W.M.D Preview – Arm in Arm Again

I’ve been a lifelong fan of Worms. One of my fondest childhood memories was playing the original waaay back on the Amiga, then my teenage years spending long summers nuking my friends and dropping concrete donkeys on them in Worms 2 and Armageddon, which for many, myself included, is seen as the pinnacle of the…

Sheltered (PS4) Review – Time Will Crawl

The door is hanging off its rusted hinges, the floor and walls are covered in a thick layer of grime, possibly even excrement. The toilet and shower are nothing more than a bucket and a hose pipe respectively, each hidden from view by a ragged curtain. There are no beds to speak of, only sleeping bags…

Beyond Eyes (PS4) Review: Rainbow in the Dark

One of the greatest things about video games is their ability to allow us to feel what it might be like to be someone else. Usually, this means taking the form of some mighty hero or super-powered space-maniac. Occasionally, a game comes along that shows us what it is like to be frail or disadvantaged in…

Penarium Review: Circus of Horrors

Trial and error is the basis of old-school gaming. The fiendishly difficult Penarium from Self Made Miracle takes this axiom and runs it straight to its controller-snapping conclusion in a 2D arcade-style ‘twitch’ platformer that is as exhilarating as it is exhausting. Penarium tells the tragic tale of Willy, a young farmhand who, bored of a…

The Escapists (PS4) Review: Shawshanking!

The message taken from prison break genre movies is simple – getting out of the clink is hard. From Steve McQueen stunt-riding his way to freedom in The Great Escape to Tim Robbins crawling through sewage in The Shawshank Redemption, it’s clear that making a successful bid for freedom requires planning, skill, intelligence and a…

LA Cops (PS4) Review: It’s a SABOTAGE!!

The first thing that sprang to mind when I saw the trailer for LA Cops was the video for Sabotage by The Beastie Boys. The two both have quite a lot in common; both being a homage to 1970’s buddy cop dramas, complete with silly haircuts, a tongue in cheek sense of humour and plenty…

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…
