Get Even (PS4) Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

Get Even is one of those games that is a bugger to review; not because it isn’t any good. Not at all. In fact, the Farm 51’s walking-simulator- in-a- first-person- shooter’s-clothing is one of 2017’s best surprises and bound for cult classic status. No it’s a bugger to review because the narrative features so many…

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…

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)…

Techland Reveals Torment: Tides of Numenera’s Glaive Class

We Happy Few Preview: Don’t Worry, Be Happy

From the trailer showing off the intro to We Happy Few during Microsoft’s press conference at E3 this year, you would think that the alt history survival game from Compulsion Games looked a lot like an anglicised version of BioShock. A bizarre and unnerving survival horror, with influences ranging from Huxley to Orwell, to classic…

Carmageddon: Max Damage (PS4) Review – Bad Reputation

The original Carmageddon will always have a special place in my heart. Not only is it one of the granddaddies of the vehicular combat genre (along with Twisted Metal, Vigilante 8 and Destruction Derby), but thanks to the controversy surrounding it (as one of only a few games to actually be banned in the UK, albeit…

7 Days to Die (PS4) Review – The Gods Forgot They Made Me

You awake to find yourself in a dark room! Okay, maybe not this time. You awake to find yourself bollock-naked in the snow, with no idea where you are, no clothes, no resources and no clue. In the distance, a dilapidated homestead. As you press forward, you can hear a strange groaning, and there’s a…

The Technomancer (PS4) Review – The Freakiest Show

David Bowie once famously asked “is there life on Mars?” Spiders’ new Cyberpunk RPG the Technomancer answers this age old rhetorical question: yes, and its bloody horrible. The sequel to 2013’s Mars: War Logs, the Technomancer once again takes players back to a red planet which has been colonized by humanity for hundreds of years. Technomancer‘s…

Deadlight: Directors Cut (PS4) Review – Where is my Mind?

Originally released back in 2012 as part of Xbox’s Summer of Arcade, Deadlight was that year’s 2D platformer. It gave the genre the now-too-familiar zombie apocalypse treatment, with fairly positive results, mixing the puzzle and platforming elements of Flashback (the original, not that awful fucking remake) and the shadowy aesthetics and grim tone of fellow Summer…

Lichdom: Battlemage (PS4) Review – Klatu Verata….

Being a massive fan of Hexen, I was really looking forward to Lichdom: Battlemage. In my not-so-humble opinion, there should be more magic-based First Person Shooters out there. The little bit I had seen of the game on PC made me think that this oddly overlooked title could be just what I was after. It seems that…

Project CARS Review – Clarkson’s Wet Dream

I have always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with the more realistic racing sims.  As much as I love a good arcade racer, I find it hard to get to grips with them. I still remember fully upgrading my Dodge Viper in the original Gran Turismo, and thinking it’d help me win, just before ploughing…

Life Goes on: Done to Death (PS4) Review – Tis But a Scratch

Life Goes On: Done to Death is an inventive and pythonesque platform puzzler that turns the conventions of the genre on their (admittedly quite dated by now) heads. You see, rather than punishing a player for dying, sacrificing members of the brave (read: utterly foolhardy) band of knights is the only way to progress. On…

Party Hard (PS4) Review – How to be a Homicidal Bastard!

We’ve all been there. It’s 3am on a Sunday night.  You have to get up for work in three hours, and the inconsiderate gobshites next door are still in the middle of a party, with no end in sight. The paper-thin walls do nothing to stop the endless thump of awful dance music, the cackling…
