Rise of the Triad review
Do you miss 90s shooters like Doom, when level design was paramount to the extent that certain level designers actually became pretty well known?
Cloudberry Kingdom review
If you want to be a games journalist, I’d caution you about one thing.
Teleglitch: Die More Edition Review
True to its subheading, this updated version of Teleglitch will make you die.
Metro: Last Light – Faction Pack DLC review
If nothing else, it’s hard to argue the price. Even if the Faction Pack was a set of entirely generic missions that did nothing new or even particularly interesting, there’d still be the nagging argument in the back of my head that it’s still giving you more Metro: Last Light – which is undeniably a good thing – for only £4.
The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief – Chapter 1: The Eye of the Sphinx Review
Hercule Poirot gave the main speech at my university graduation. Not the more recognisable Poirot figure of David Suchet, but the late Peter Ustinov.
Toki Tori 2+ Review
I’ve just coaxed my final golden frog into a suction tube and saved a village community of flightless birds.
Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep Review
It’s been a long and bumpy road for Borderlands 2 DLC.
Magrunner: Dark Pulse Review
Games development pretty much depends on derivation and iteration to survive.
Stinky Board Review
We were born with eight fingers and two thumbs, but imagine if we had an extra hand.
Anomaly 2 Review
It’s an interesting week for fans of slightly unusual tower defence games because we’ve got two slightly unusual tower defence sequels.
Strike Suit Infinity Review
I quite enjoyed Strike Suit Zero. It had a few problems, but does the job in a genre that is crying out for more games.
Zeno Clash II Review
When I played the first Zeno Clash, the world of Zenozoik felt like something out of a long lost 1980s fantasy film; unique, exciting and strange.
Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine Review
So a few weeks ago I finally got my hands on a new computer (yes, this does mean I’ll stop making jokes about my computer being powered by coal), and so naturally I’ve tried out all sorts of processor-scrambling stuff to put it through its paces.
Lords of Football Review
My star striker is a fat alcoholic, I’ve got a kleptomaniac defensive midfielder called ‘The Mummy’ and in my last match I was denied a winning goal by a ‘keeper called ‘The Flying Viking.’ Welcome to Lords of Football, where sporting matters are somewhat less serious than Football Manager.
ShootMania Storm Review
Providing a definitive review of Nadeo’s ShootMania Storm is tricky for a couple of reasons.
BioShock Infinite Review
BioShock Infinite is one of those ‘event’ games, where the pedigree of the developers, the ceaseless hype and the relative thematic boldness of its narrative can spin the unwary games writer into a critical daze and a few too many visits to the superlative drawer.
