Shadows: Awakening – PS4 | Review

Shadows: Awakening – PS4 | Review

Some genres just don't do it for you. Whether it's down to burnt fingers from past experience or simply blind prejudice, we all have a tendency to shy away from certain types of games. I'll confess that I wasn't too enamoured at the prospect of playing an isometric action RPG,…read more >

Marvel’s Spider-Man – PS4 | Review

Marvel’s Spider-Man – PS4 | Review

Insomniac Games may be famous with Sony fans for its platformer Ratchet & Clank and of course, the excellent Resistance Fall of Man series, however, much like Peter Parker, all that is about to change. If ever there was a studio Sony could turn to when it comes to developing…read more >
Super Daryl Deluxe – PS4 | Review

Super Daryl Deluxe – PS4 | Review

We're truly in the throes of silly season now, where the biggest publishers unleash their biggest guns. It's at once exciting and overwhelming; there are almost too many games to play. Here at Square XO, we feel it's therefore doubly important to shine a light on the smaller titles which,…read more >
Yakuza Kiwami 2 – PS4 | Review

Yakuza Kiwami 2 – PS4 | Review

Loading up Yakuza Kiwami 2 for the first time I am met with a familiarity that the series has afforded. During this journey with everyone’s favourite serious, yet gold-hearted Kazuma Kiryu, I have fought off hordes of hooligans using a bicycle, played darts in a bar during a story mission…read more >
V-Rally 4 – PS4 | Review

V-Rally 4 – PS4 | Review

So, let’s get two things out of the way since I'm reviewing a driving game. First, I am not a pro driver in any way and second, I like a good racing game and have played a few, but Mercedes AMG hasn’t been in touch yet; Yes, there is a…read more >
SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy – PS4 | Review

SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy – PS4 | Review

Sex sells and SNK knows it. The over-sexualisation of the female fighters in SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy is said to be deliberate and tied to the story. That story being about 20 minutes long about a pervert that has kidnapped these fierce females with plans to turn them into…read more >
Dimension Drive – PS4 | Review

Dimension Drive – PS4 | Review

Dimension Drive is an interesting game. Especially to someone who hasn't played many Bullet Hell shooters before. The main thing setting it apart from other games in the genre is it's new and unique dual screen mechanic, that essentially puts you in control of two ships at once with the…read more >
Planet Alpha – PS4 | Review

Planet Alpha – PS4 | Review

Planet Alpha is published by Team 17 and will be released on the 4th September. You start Planet Alpha as an injured astronaut on an alien world that has found itself under attack from an army of robots and as there is no introduction, tutorial or dialogue, you can create…read more >
Ninjin: Clash of Carrots – PS4 | Review

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots – PS4 | Review

Clash of Carrots is a fun colourful side-scrolling 2d action title from developer Pocket Trap. The game is described as a beat ‘em up but I feel it has more in common with side-scrolling shooters like r-type, however, rather than pilot a craft and shoot you are controlling a badass…read more >
Strange Brigade – PS4 | Review

Strange Brigade – PS4 | Review

Strange Brigade is a bizarrely appropriate name for this game. Set in the 1930s, you and up to three of your compatriots from old Blighty travel to Egypt to take part in a third-person shooter that pits you against hordes of ghastly ghouls, magical mummies, shambling skeletons and, of course,…read more >
Donut County – iOS/PS4 | Review

Donut County – iOS/PS4 | Review

Donut County is an interesting game in which you play as a hole. At the start of the game, the residents are found deep underground, trying to figure out what happened to the town above, all of which seems to be linked to each of them ordering a donut and…read more >
Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 – PS4 | Review

Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 – PS4 | Review

Pro Evolution Soccer is back for another year and this time it could be really up against it, given that for the first time it's without the prestigious UEFA Champions League license. FIFA’s pinched that one, leaving PES 2019 a little light on the ground when it comes to high…read more >
Dog Gone Golfing – PS4 | Review

Dog Gone Golfing – PS4 | Review

Ahh, dogs. The superior pet (don’t @ me), man’s best friend, protector of young ones and homes and all-round general ‘good boy’. They may not be the internet’s chosen pet – a quick scientific study shows the number of Google results has cats just ahead of dogs at 3,010,000,000 vs.…read more >
Brawlout – PS4 | Review

Brawlout – PS4 | Review

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. Remember that? The unlikely spectacle of our favourite mascots squaring up for cartoon fisticuffs, Smash Bros style, was pretty novel in those PS3 and Vita days. Back then, I had some fleeting fun playing as Sackboy in unusually pugnacious form, gleefully knocking lumps out of Nathan…read more >
Shenmue 2 – PS4 | Review

Shenmue 2 – PS4 | Review

Shenmue 2 is, perhaps unsurprisingly, the sequel to Shenmue. Released on the Dreamcast back in 2001 and 1999 respectively, the two games came to PS4 in August 2018 as a high-definition (HD) port of the original games. They are identical to the originals — typos and all; the only notable…read more >
