Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Remastered – PS4 | Review

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Remastered – PS4 | Review

Assassin's Creed: Rogue's initial release on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 was significantly overshadowed by the simultaneous release of Assassin's Creed: Unity as naturally, the greater part of players turned to the game released on next gen consoles (at the time). That said, many never embarked upon Shay's journey, including…read more >
MLB The Show 18 – PS4 | Review

MLB The Show 18 – PS4 | Review

I know nothing when it comes to baseball, so having to review MLB The Show 18 had me stuck at first base, at least that is until I decided to think of it as rounders. Hit the ball as hard as you can and run around in a circle before…read more >
Island Time VR – PSVR | Review

Island Time VR – PSVR | Review

Island Time for PlayStation VR is a game I don't have too much to say about. It's a game with a simple premise. You find yourself stranded on an island with an animated crab and have to survive for as long as you can using the various tools at your…read more >

Bridge Constructor Stunts – PS4 | Review

Bridge Constructor Stunts – PS4 | Review

It doesn't feel like that long ago since I reviewed Bridge Constructor Portal, but already we have a new game in the series hitting PS4, except this time it's all about Stunts. Bridge Constructor Stunts does exactly what it says, it has you build bridges and leap over them, hoping…read more >
Rascal Revolt – PS4 | Review

Rascal Revolt – PS4 | Review

Rascal Revolt is yet another title which spawns from the excellent PlayStation Talents program in Spain. We've already seen the likes of Deiland, Timothy vs the Aliens and Flynn and Freckles and now, thanks to Seamantis Games we have another indie game which is well worth your attention. Set in a theme park gone…read more >
Cruz Brothers – PS4 ǀ Review

Cruz Brothers – PS4 ǀ Review

Cruz Brothers comes from DCF Studios and tells the story of a boxing trainer driven to revenge following the death of his protege at the hands of a ruthless biker gang. Unfortunately, inconsistent hit detection, a muddled art style and woefully imprecise controls leave this prize fighter on the cold,…read more >
Octahedron – PS4 | Review

Octahedron – PS4 | Review

With the cyclical nature of videogames, everything that was old becomes new again and vice versa. Look to Call of Duty for an example - the series’ transition from WW2 historical piece to Modern Warfare, space combat and back again shows this in a single thread. Following on from classic…read more >
Scribblenauts Showdown – PS4 | Review

Scribblenauts Showdown – PS4 | Review

Since debuting on the Nintendo DS all the way back in 2009, Scribblenauts has hit mobile, consoles, PC, handhelds and probably a toaster at some point. Short of a DC Comics spinoff, the franchise has always been a puzzle/platformer with an emphasis on using its extensive dictionary to solve problems…read more >
Beast Quest – PS4 | Review

Beast Quest – PS4 | Review

It's fair to say I'm not really a fan of the latest Beast Quest game, it's basic, the story is quite cheesy and well, it's just a little bit boring. It doesn't help the enemy AI is less intelligent than a cardboard cutout and the combat feels slow and awkward.…read more >
Midnight Deluxe PSVita/PS4 | Review

Midnight Deluxe PSVita/PS4 | Review

I won’t keep you too long here with this review. Like the game, it’ll be short, sweet, contain some annoyances, but overall hold some merit… Midnight Deluxe is the spiritual successor to 36 Fragments of Midnight, although rather than being a procedurally generated platformer, it is what the love child…read more >
Burnout Paradise – Remastered | Review

Burnout Paradise – Remastered | Review

It's always difficult to review remastered games, especially in the case of Burnout Paradise, a game which I put so much time into that I probably wore out a few controllers along the way. So what better way to review the remaster than to capture the excitement I had the…read more >

Frantics – PS4 | Review

Frantics – PS4 | Review

Sony's PlayLink service certainly offers up a diverse range of titles, such as Singstar, Knowledge is Power, Hidden Agenda and That's You, all of which offer something a little different to play with your friends. Now we have Frantics, a more familiar party game, given that it groups together a bunch…read more >
Bravo Team – PSVR | Review

Bravo Team – PSVR | Review

Some games are terrible. Bravo Team is one of them, unfortunately. That's not my favourite way to start a review, but there's no getting away from the fact that SuperMassive's latest VR effort is just bad. I've only just returned to the VR scene after a year out. My PSVR…read more >
