I usually try to open a review with some kind of witty line, but this time I think I'll just jump right in. Jump Force is a 3D arena brawler from Namco Bandai, the company has a bit of experience in this field due to the fact that almost every…read more >

Hyper Jam – PS4 | Review

We don’t see enough local multiplayer games these days in my opinion. When I sit down with friends or my kids and play some games together it's pure bliss. There is something great about sitting down in a room, laughing your head off and having some friendly competition. My boys…read more >
The Mage’s Tale – PSVR | Review

The Mage’s Tale – PSVR | Review

I do adore a good dungeon crawl and I remember playing text-based dungeon crawlers on my Commodore 64 to all hours. There is something extraordinary about scouring through sewers and castles, finding loot and defeating enemies. VR versions of these games could not be far away now we have PSVR,…read more >

Having reviewed 8-Bit Armies back in September, I was excited to get my hands on 8-bit Hordes to see if it maintained that fun, colourful & chaotic feel. Hordes comes in as the 2nd game of a 3-game series developed by Petroglyph Games, 8-Bit Invaders will be the final game. What…read more >
Observer – Nintendo Switch | Review

Observer – Nintendo Switch | Review

After watching the trailer for the Switch Version of Observer I was left excited. It looked dark, gritty and full of the sci-fi inspirations I love. It had Blade Runner influences, it had the dystopian look of a Bioshock game and I could not believe this was running on the…read more >
Crisis VRigade – PSVR | Review

Crisis VRigade – PSVR | Review

I am a massive fan of PSVR and the platform has really hit its stride in the last year or so. Its range of games is exceptional and a lot of the small experiences released early on have been fleshed out into full games. Things like Astro Bot and The…read more >

Riot: Civil Unrest – PS4 | Review

Riot: Civil Unrest – PS4 | Review

I'm all for not having my hand held but Riot: Civil Unrest took this a little too far, much to the detriment of the experience. Riot: Civil Unrest starts with a statement from the developers that they don't take a side in any conflict, then the first thing you have…read more >

Kingdom Hearts 3 – PS4 | Review

Kingdom Hearts 3 – PS4 | Review

Reviewing Kingdom Hearts 3 is one behemoth of a task. In part, because it’s the first mainline game released since 2005, but also because of what the series means to me, personally. Gleefully running around Destiny Islands attempting to build a raft to other worlds is safely among my first…read more >
Unruly Heroes – Nintendo Switch | Review

Unruly Heroes – Nintendo Switch | Review

I saw a trailer for Unruly Heroes and immediately knew it would be something I would love to review. It's beautiful art style, it's fun platforming, its wacky characters and local multiplayer are all things I like in games. The hand-drawn art reminds me of the recent Rayman games and…read more >
